As someone who plays Diablo 3 and is about as disappointed as you are, I can see exactly the same patterns and trends of corruption you are.
First I would like to state some of my personal thoughts on EXACTLY what Acti-Blizz is doing, and while it is genius it will fail and ultimately ruin
First off I would like to point out that the RMAH (real money auction house) is 100% anonymous...you don't know who you are buying or selling to. In a
in game virtual currency sense this is no big deal, ok everyone is anon so what? HOWEVER in a REAL MONEY $$$ sense this is a HUGE deal.
Personally I think blizzard is creating the best end-game items (because they can its "their game") posting them on the RMAH and even the Gold auction
house, these items are the ones people find "necessary" to progress into later acts on inferno.
This is allowing blizz to corner the market. While simultaneously control the game in a way that makes it almost impossible to enjoy or play without
utilizing the auction house or caving in a buying items/gold with real $$$$
If you look in the auction house at the amount of end-game items being posted and compare it to the amount of dwindling players then cross reference
that with the amount of players who are even far enough into the game to GET that kind of gear you will see where I am coming from in my suspicions.
Another thing people weren't realizing was that upon release the gear needed to complete Act II inferno was found in Act III...to complete act III you
needed act IV...and to complete act IV...you need to have bought those epic items I was talking about that I accuse blizz of creating anonymously.
almost from the get go of launch you could find some absurdly powerful ilvl63 items that should have been impossible for people to get because they
didn't have the gear to get to the places where the gear dropped....let alone actually kill anything. They HAD to of saved gold and bought items off
the AH to do so....
Ask ANY inferno farming playing where they got their gear and 90% of it will be from the AH or RMAH....10% being items they actually found from
playing the game...this makes me believe 90% of the items that are of end-game are created out of thin air by blizz (because they can) anonymously
while simultaneously they release a game that is impossible to progress through without buying those items they created out of thin air.
Illegal? not necessarily...Unethical? Absolutely...would they lose fans/customers if this was common knowledge? YES and they are continuing to do so
because the most of the community have caught on to blizzards RMAH pillage your pocket game...
this game wasn't designed to be FUN, it was designed to be so incredibly frustrating your only option to alleviate that frustration is to throw money
at the problem...or quit
