He must get paid UAE(?) for these posts, or he should cuz thats some top notch salesmanship right there.
Why would the United Arab Emirates pay him?

I gotta ask: How has this effected the gold selling sites? What did $20 on a gold selling site get you prior to this?
Too soon to tell. Right now 30k gold will run you around $25-30 on a gold seller site. You're looking at around a dollar per 1000 gold. So the starting price here is actually a bit cheaper than buying from China. Since Blizzard is in charge of setting the price it's really hard to tell what will happen.
In a pure supply & demand situation like I've seen in Wildstar or EVE, generally the "legit" currency ends up costing more than the black market currency because people end up being willing to pay a premium for the legitimacy.
The illegal sellers are in a tough spot because if they don't undercut Blizzard by a significant margin, their sales will dry up. No one is going to buy illegal gold for more than legit gold.
But a few friends of mine in blizz told me weeks ago that they have the ability to alter the gold price of the tokens. One of their goals is to hurt the gold farmers profits as much as possible. They'll adjust the gold price as needed, but they're going to keep the changes subtle so that it's hard to tell at first glance.

Nothing I've seen suggests the planetside content will be boring and unnecessary. In fact one of the videos CIG put out explained how they were implementing NPC events (i.e. a bandit might attack you or a shady character will offer you a mission) and allowing people the ability to sneak in weapons in order to make sure players are always on their toes. They recognized that locations like those shown are impressive at first but quickly blend into the background, so they'll be creating dynamic activities to create compelling experiences. Whether they'll deliver is another matter but they're certainly well aware of the mistakes of other games.
I picture it as being something like Skyrim...

Hmmm, I wonder if I'll get the invite.
I've gotten an invite from Blizzard so far to try out, vanilla WoW, Starcraft 2, Starcraft 2 HotS, Warcraft 3 expansion, Heroes of the Storm, and Diablo 3.

I saw that article like four days ago. There's no way Samsung is buying AMD. AMD won't sell on the crux of their possibly biggest launch since ATi's 4870. The 300 series is likely to net them some handsome profits. Why would they just hand that opportunity over to Samsung? It's not happening.

I have a 32 inch 4k monitor for my computer.
Its beautiful. Plenty of desktop space.
Do not really need that second monitor anymore.
Have to really hunt and modify games with player created UHD textures
to make it worthwhile above 1080p.
As for tv/living room movie watching... not worthwhile currently.
For the distance you are away from the monitor on the couch,
the screen would really need to be ginormas to really feel the
extra resolution/clarity to be worthwhile.
Plus the lack of content at the moment other then demo vids....

How do we have version 1.1 (not a beta) when the game isn't released. *sigh* Numbering of versions in a lot of games has annoyed me of late.
Exactly sorta what I was gonna post. Really don't like the way they're running their show. Guess it makes money, but I get the feeling there will be a lot of unfulfilled dreams at the end.
Some people really do get worked up about meaningless shit.
What people should be moaning about is the fact that the new download system required uninstalling the game and redownloading it all again. People should be annoyed that the original upload for 1.1 was corrupted, meaning that downloads had to be reset. People should be annoyed despite that issue being fixed the install still crapped out at the end, with the workaround to be enabling patch repair under settings. People should be annoyed that the online multiplayer is broken, with CIG advising people not to bother until Monday.
But sure, let's complain about the version numbers.
PS - After all the trouble it's a decent update, it's just it was badly handled.
All that stuff happening is, of course, completely unacceptable for a retail release. That's why we need to remember this is still a project in development. Given that, it's not really worth moaning over at all if you're understanding of what you're taking part of. Shit's gonna break, or not work, and that's just how it is for now.
If they pull a "BF4" or "AC:Unity" some other similar giant fuck up at retail launch as well, then THAT will be worth throwing a few stones over.

Cutter wrote on Mar 2, 2015, 18:17:Alot... at lest back when I was playing which was almost 10yrs ago now. Thing is not to farm, corner the markets with AH scanners like a post above says. Takes about a year to get all the statistical data for a particular server, learn the supply demand curves and develop a cash flow to play with. The more you make the more you make... like your first million is the hardest kind of thing. After that you just go in and buy all the items then sell them back at a profit. If someone trys to sell one at a lower price just undercut them till it expires and they give up trying or buy it... Start a one man guild to give you a bunch of storage... etc, etc.
How much gold can the average player reasonably farm in a month? I can't see them accepting anything less than that, so I doubt this system will work that well. Even for Chinese gold mills buying these you'd expect any profit would be razor thin.

WOW is right... people are losing their shit about not getting one for taking a break, sad and funny at the same time.
Depending on how they bought their time, 1300-1800 statute that you can buy on ebay for 150. hahahahah I love it.
Very cool move on their part, I don't know much detail behind it, but it would be cool if they were serialized with usernames.
Ill let the dust settle, then grab one for gaming history.
"Within the first day, over 200,000 players created World of Warcraft accounts...Over the Thanksgiving weekend, players continued to buy World of Warcraft in record numbers, with a total of over 350,000(a) copies of the game selling through."SourceSo lets say they had, world wide, 2 million users sign up in the time frame and only 10% qualify for this...I'm guessing there are around 150K-250K statues out there. Then maybe Blizzard says "opps, sry everyone" and releases it for sale; would be worthless very quick after that. That being said 150$ would be an alright price if its solid metal with heavy detail... but start bid can be far from closing price so good luck
