Our current vote has been up a bit longer than usual, but there didn’t seem to be any point in changing it out last week, when I knew the info blast was coming up on Monday. I’ve been thinking about the topic for the new vote for several days, since I found out all about the media event on Wednesday, and realized how many potential controversies were brewing.
No more skill points? Skill rune redesign? Tiny sized beta? Traits removed? All seemed like good material for a site vote… and it turns out they’re all just mice squeaking around the elephant in the living room, as the Auction House and its RMT aspect have dominated the conversation for the past 9 hours. (Though it seems much longer than that, probably because I haven’t moved from the computer during that entire time.)
So now that you know all about the Auction House, and you’ve read fan reactions ranging from love to /ragequit… what do you think? Pick the vote option that mostly closely matches your own opinion, and we’ll achieve some community consensus.
