Diablo III Game Limit Dropped - EU RMAH Friday

Eurogamer has word that the European version of the Diablo III real-money auction house will launch on Friday. Also, Blizzard announces that they have temporarily dropped a recently added limitation on the number of Diablo III games a player can start during a given period. The limit was intended to reduce server strain and improve overall game stability, but apparently this was not working as intended:

After looking into some reports from players it seems the limit may have not been working exactly as intended. Working properly you really shouldn't see it, even in fairly normal 'farming' conditions, or reasonable amounts of character swapping. We're shutting off the limitations off until we can take a better look at it tomorrow.

Honestly you have sold 1k of good with your D3 copy? If true, that is hard to argue against and the gaming world is changing. Sure a lot of things they did with this game suck ass, but if you can make bank off of rich idiots, best game evar!
Gems are selling for good to insane prices. Weapons not so much, though some armors were. It has somewhat changed it, though to be honest, the normal AH is still as buy as ever so I don't see it going anywhere. Both sides are still thriving. It's easier to still exploit a market by snagging deals and relisting at a higher price though, which is where I made my money.

Is that before or after the transfer fee?

While I still think the game is a mess, I have to agree with HorrorScope about taking advantage of the morons out there. I suspect that won't last very long, but enjoy it while it does!
That's before. Even figuring 30%, it's not bad. Though it's much more than what I'm losing off say currencies which is between 1-3% it's better than when I was playing with some brokers who were charging 35% up here. Taking advantage of morons has been the best thing, but it not lasting? I agree. I look at it this way. I've nearly paid for my last 5 years worth of wow in less than a week.

edit: can't spell worth shit.
