Diablo III Auctions Detailed

Blizzard announces a new Global Play functionality for to allow Diablo III players to play on servers in different regions. They also announce a new Auction House Website for the action/RPG as home to the in-game auction functionality in the action/RPG sequel. This FAQ has all the details, including how the house rake will work:

In the gold-based auction house, a 15% transaction fee will be deducted from the final sale price of a successful auction.

In the real-money auction-house, for equipment such as weapons and armor, a fixed transaction fee will be deducted from the seller for each piece of equipment successfully sold. This fee is assessed only if the item is sold. For commodities such as crafting materials, gems, gold, and other “stackable” items, a 15% transaction fee will be deducted from the total sale price.
Note that additional fees apply for players who choose to receive the proceeds of their successful auction via PayPal™ (in regions where this option is available). See the Functionality section of this FAQ for further details.

There will be thousands of players who are not at all interested in multiplayer. It takes "only a few" (relatively speaking) to collapse the (RM)AH economy entirely.

So people that won't be touching MP or the Auction Houses will collapse the game economy? /facepalm

You didn't read my earlier posts so stop trying to be a condescending smartass, Krovven. I hate it with a goddamn passion that I have to waste my time repeating myself because of people like you.

Multiplayer is integrated in singleplayer in such a way that singleplayer gamers can use the AH without the normally tedious steps of first getting into a multiplayer section of the game. In this way they'll use the AH as just that: a singleplayer AH. This is the first game with such an integration which is why my hypothesis is what it is.

Then don't make retarded statements such as the the game economy collapsing. It doesn't even exist yet and you are talking about it's demise, stringing together unrelated sentences to try and make your case, which have no merit.

You're not even remotely trying not to sound like the stereotype online-community asshole, are you?

My "retarded statements" were an hypothesis. I don't even want to use that term but you make me. I do not claim it "is this" or "will be that". You're obviously too dumb to wrap your head around it so I'm done arguing with you, Krovven.

Krowen is the sterotypical Blizzard zealot, say one negative thing regarding one of their games even if it's constructive criticism and his panties get all in a bunch.
