News Comments > Diablo III Auction Houses Shutting Down Next Year
88. Re: Diablo III Auction Houses Shutting Down Next Year Sep 18, 2013, 16:15 Undocumented Alien
 
Personally I think the best way to replace the AH is to implement some sort of bazaar-like functionality, maybe have it per lobby or something.

Not saying that Marvel Heroes is a great game, but, it at least has "common" areas where you can interact (and coop) with ~30 other people "on the fly".

I'm a bit surprised that D3 didn't have common areas where 30-50 heroes could cooperate together against bosses (dynamic events) and misc mobs, that at least could nave been a better requirement for online DRM. It could also serve as a meeting/trading place.

So which part of my post, or any post recently, was me being a dick to you (or anyone else)

Yeah, your a dick dude, no way around it.

Calling people "morons" for wanting what IS a SP OFFLINE game with optional COOP to actually have a SP OFFLINE mode? "Being a dick".

What's your problem Verno? Or could you just not help but be a dick today?

As opposed to you being one everyday? Poor Krovven crying yet again...

Alright Blizz, ALMOST THERE! Just need to add the SP OFFLINE mode and it will finally be a CORRECT Diablo successor sequel.

Don't like the AH? Don't use it. It's that simple.

I don't and won't, and additionally detach the AH/RMAH from requiring the whole game to be forced to an online connection (JUST LIKE THE CONSOLE VERSION) and we'll be getting somewhere. It's that simple.

I've been playing online only games for 10+ years and will continue to do so.

Since you such a "VET", then you should understand that Diablo is historically a SP OFFLINE AND MP game, NOT just an online game.

If I dont have internet at any given time, I will play something else and I won't rage about it, unlike what Undocumented Moron thinks.

Oh wow, I get a personal attack, sweet! Must have hit a nerve, I guess Diablo 3 needs to come with tissues as well. *Poor Krovven*

Why is there no RMAH in the PS3 version? Sony likely wouldn't allow it, at least without their cut, which would make it not worth it...

It's the same for XBOX as well.


I realize you're not all developers, or even computer people, but shit takes time...

How big of you to explain to all the little people. D3 was in the oven for a LONG time, time was not an issue for Blizz. Your excuse doesn't hold any water. Obviously they reused a lot of the code base from the PC version and somehow, using a genius like yourself I guess, were able to strip the AH/RMAH out of the game.

People "like" yourself complained with publishers like Ubi-soft used shitty DRM schemes and the complaining helped remedy the decision. If "we" don't let Blizz know that the forced ODRM sucks, then nothing will get changed.

"I" want the OPTION to play D3 SP Offline just like I did with Diablo and Diablo 2. So I will be vocal about it. Sorry if my want for an OPTION takes away from your gaming experience.

What % of PC players are offline when they want to play a title like D3? REALLY?

Well, that seems pretty easy, 0% right now as it's forced.

I know the answer is not readily obtainable, but I have to guess that it's an absurdly low number

If you are playing SP, and don't care about the AH/RMAH, then why would you want to be online? You get better performance when not having to have packets of data sent inline during combat. I know I see some intermittent lag when I play.

How often is your gaming PC not online?

How often are consoles online? Right, exactly, but they are not getting stuck online with D3. Explain that.

D2 players would buy/sell/trade all the time at this point, still not sure why the disdain? cause of the RMAH? If it was just gold would you all be LESS butthurt?

It's the obvious reason for the forced ODRM, THAT's the disdain (apart from just plain greed). I don't want to be forced online for something I don't need or care about. And now we have "proof" that the RMAH can be taken out as the console crowd doesn't have to deal with it.

Would be a good gesture, if during the expansion, that ActiBlizz allowed the PC crowd to go SP Offline mode like the console crowd can. And of course, for those that like to be "online", you could still do that and get access to the AH or RMAH.

Why does this have to be so phucking hard to understand?

I still wonder if this was from a no name company with a different name if opinions would different.

Of course it would be different, ActiBlizz is holding the brand name "Diablo" hostage, and they know they can get away with it. If this was called anything else and published by Ubi-Soft even people like Krovven would be up in arms over it. They win simply because of the two words, Blizzard & Diablo.

They found the off switch for the console versions however. They also found a solution to it always being on for the console versions

Correct, so it's not a "technical" complication, it's a "commercial" complication, having to do with the almighty $$$.

So I think the better question is why did Blizzard totally fuck over the PC user base? Lie to them repeatedly, and continue to lie?

The PC user base is paying for the console crowd to have the luxury of a offline, auction house free experience.

It IS a good question though, why does the console version get the Cadillac experience when the PC base is what got Diablo to where it is today. You would think the console user base would have to pay their dues, not the PC user base.

No doubt Jivaro, the game doesn't bring much new to the table.

The only thing that it has that *might* be considered *new* for an ARGP is the open multi-player areas that you share with strangers (up to ~ 20). Since D3 is forced online, that should have also had these open multi-player areas, would have given it some justification outside a DRM scheme.

Minus the blood and gore of a Diablo type game, I don't see this being any more basic than a D3 or equiv.

So yes, taking away some adult themed violence that Diablo 1/2/3 has, not sure how any other ARPG is more complicated. I'm sure an 8 year old could just as easily play D3, but with more nightmares after the play session.

Just say'in

It's not even better than tetris, let alone Diablo 3. Don't kid yourself, this one is a piece of crap.

What exactly are you having issues with in the game to call it a piece of crap? It's Diablo wrapped in a Marvel environment.

I've reached up to level 20 with two characters (one free (Hawkeye), and paid for Deadpool) and haven't seen any issues yet. Not saying level 20 is a huge achievement, but, that's a decent amount of play time to not see any issues.

For $0, it's better than Diablo 3. And, for an online ARPG, it actually has a reason to be online, unlike DiabWoW. Yeah, it's not perfect, but I'm having fun with Deadpool.

And I agree, patches quick via STEAM.

That is one bland and ugly looking console.

Exposing players to perfect rolls of every item in the game makes their drops feel less meaningful and creates a desire to only upgrade to the highest possible item tier. That's where a big part of player frustration comes from with the game.

I agree, the AH promotes gold farming over exploring. It was a sense of accomplishment when you found a good drop on a Mob or in a container. Now, if it's not the BEST drop in the game, it's not good enough.

I understand that the AH is optional, however, it's been shown that Blizz gimped the drops to move peeps toward the RMAH, so it's optional to a point.

Man how they screwed the title up...

I'm guessing the argument is going to be about destroying value of items which now have a tangible, real life dollar cost. That or maybe something about having a legal responsibility to secure the service from fraud or etc. I don't know, the gold AH is pretty much open and shut who cares but introducing transactions with real money is where you run into liability problems.

Exactly, at least with D2 and the "external" black market item sales, if Blizz rolled back and people complained they could at least say, "We told you buying and selling externally was not supported". Now they own it.... dumb-asses they are.

Since the Auction House can go offline, would you guys mind supplying the offline patch for the game?
