    When did players ask to lose the fun of finding loot valuable to themselves due to the randomizing of the loot tables done in a way to drive players to the AH?

    Nice to hear the lead game designer admit what mant of us have been saying, and some refused to admit.

    This guy's a genius.... lol

    But yeah, I'm enjoying POE, myself.  It'll never sell 10 million copies, and I couldn't care less.

    And Torchlight, don't forget Torchlight.  Blizzard may still be sitting on a pile of money, but it's PEOPLE who make a company good or bad, and they're just not the same as they used to be.

    +1 should be in most games,i wonder how a mmorpg will be with this kind of system.

    Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

    1. Go to battle.net > Diablo III > Forums > General Discussion
    2. Search for "auction house"
    3. Sort by date
    4. Navigate to post page 4,651
    5. Read posts, working your way back toward page 1 (or at least get to post page 4,600)
    6. [sarcasm] Come back here and tell us players didn't get what they asked for [/sarcasm]

    I agree, after playing D3, the AH has hurt it.

    RMAH was reason I never bought D3.  Though reading feedback about gameplay and loot drops, had given me more reason to not have bought into this game.

    its stupid...you're trading one system for the exact same type of system but with different things.

     

    +1 Leather belt of stam = sell for 100g

    +1 leather belt of stam = sell for 2 orb of transmutation

     

    same shit, different packaging. doesn't fucking matter.

    Players didn't ask for the loot tables to be changed so you're encouraged to go to the AH thus removing the fun of actually finding loot.
