Vote: What to do about the Diablo 3 Auction House

Posted 2 Apr 2013 by

The DiabloWikiAuction House has been a love it or hate it feature ever since it was announced, and that argument has only increased in the past weeks since the DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Console was confirmed to have no Auction House at all, and since Jay Wilson admitted that the developers see a lot of problems with the current Diablo 3 Auction House system. (Not to mention all of the “I wish this was real!” comments on our April Fool’s post yesterday.)

Not everyone agrees that the GAH and/or RMAH need to be fixed, though. Almost everyone uses the Auction House and lots of players like it. Even most players say they don’t like it still use it since they feel that the AH is necessary given the current state of the game. (Quality items being much too hard to find on your own.)

Other suggestions for modifying or fixing the system include adding more DiabloWikiBoA and DiabloWikiBoE items in order to remove items from the trading economy (the HC economy works very well since there’s a constant outflow of gear as characters die). There’s also a (faint) possibility that the devs might implement an DiabloWikiIronborn character designation (set upon character creation and disables that character from using the Auction House and/or taking any items in trade).

There are other fixes and arguments as well, but that’s what the comments are for. Votes must discard much of the nuance and subtlety in order to fit discrete answers into the space allotted, so pick the option that best matches your dream fix to the AH, and we’ll measure some fan consensus on this controversial issue. Also, I said “Expansion” in the vote since that seems like the best time to start afresh on the AH — the devs aren’t going to make huge changes to the AH since those would completely disrupt the current economy. (Hence the console launching with different features, many of which could not be patched into D3 at this point, but could be implemented in a new/expansion product.
