    The world will be a slightly better place, I assume.

    "slightly" lol
    but even without the "legit" auction house real money trades still exist. There is playerauctions and ebay or other sites

    So they illegitimize legal real money trading, and then they illegitimize in-game item trading, and now the only way to get good items is through black market. Gosh.

    Unfortunately for Diablo 3, this is only ONE of the major problems the game has. Unless they give us INTERESTING and MEANINGFUL character progression that allows us to be invested in our character, the game will go the way of the first iteration of Diablo 3. Inferno was hard yes, but it wasn't because it was hard that people quit. People quit because the only meaningful way to progress was gear. Once you hit the wall in Inferno and realized you needed a LOT more gear to get through it, all you could do is farm. Paragon levels had benefits sure, but it was not interesting enough for people to care.

    I hope the expansion proves me wrong because I would love a reason to hop back into Diablo 3. However, from what I have seen and played so far, it seems to be more of the same. The easier access to better gear will make it last a bit longer (maybe, I have doubts about this too), but the itemization on the new gear is so ridiculously boring. Again, I hope I am wrong.

    I'm not going to bother organizing my thoughts too much but...

    Real Money Trading(RMT) can have a severe, negative impact on games. Games that are grind oriented, like Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft, are often effected the worst.

    First and foremost it can trade longevity for quick sales. Players get what they want and have no reason to play.

    It can cause in game economy to be unstable and easy to exploit.

    Even players who do not wish to partake in RMT can be effected. It cheapens their experience. They just don't see the point in working HOURS to progress when the same thing can be achieved for a few dollars.

    Im guessing everyone but seya didnt play the RoS beta? all gear becomes account bound unless found in a game with other people then you can only trade to those people in your party at the time of the drop for a little bit of time 2hours iirc. I honestly think removing auction house will hurt more than having it in unless they remove the account bound but then we'll be back to people complaining about selling gear in a non competitive game until they add ladders which may be what account bound will be used for.
