Nothing worth having comes easy. That's why hard content is worth doing, and easy content is a waste of time.
With the massive uproar they had over the RMAH in D3, I doubt it'll ever see the light of day in another game again. Maybe Titan. Who knows.
Well, scratch that. As long as WoW has a subscription fee, there will be no RMAH. IF WoW goes F2P, then we will see something similar to RMAH. But from blizz to player.
Alot of people quit D3 over RMAH.

No offense, but right now you're kinda the one who looks silly trying to state that out-of-date information from months ago has not possibly changed/shifted at all during that time.
When mop happened I saw server queues, zone full of player etc... 2 Month later, no queue anymore. Server is back to its fireland state where It's hard to find enough people for baradin hold (now sha), 2 days after the reset...
Make me think that players who came back for mop already left less than 3 Month after the launch, and that the "10m" number is not valid anymore...
I think it will be.
It could be that they will use the battle-net currency, but that is real money also.
Somehow we'll be paying with real money, that is my believe.

I think players are doing other things or they left the game or so.
Theres already real money auction house.Its called TGC mount/pets that got BoE and now floods the AH.
At any moment theres no less than 10 TGC mounts (150k the cheapest - 500K the spectral tiger) on my server.
You buy the codes on ebay and you put it on the ah.I fail to see how is this any kind of different of a real money AH because i dont think anyone would be so naive to believe they are all TGC collectors and as long as I know buying a phisycal item (the tgc card) and redeem yourself is perfectly TOS legit(am i wrong?).
Of course it is, and people who know it have known it since the idea of BMAH was first proposed to the public. Those who think otherwise are kidding themselves, and the funniest part is, when it does get implemented, everyone will forget they ever thought it'd never happen in the first place.

The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

Not likely. Since there aren't many significant gold sinks in WoW any more, especially considering the ease of earning coin now, they needed to add something that can suck gold out of the economy, and scale with expansion.
WoW PvP; Where DPS are healers, tanks are DPS, and healers are tanks!
RETH RETH RETH!
If you raised the price of something with a 1.000 $, people would get mad and probably not buy it anymore.
But, if you raised it in, lets say, 20 steps to a total increase of 1.000 $ people would accept it.
it is like throwing a frog in boiling water; it wil try to escape as quick as possible.
But if you put him in normal temp. water and start boiling the water, the frog will stay there till death.
Just a matter of conditioning people, nothing more nothing less.
I read somewhere people wanting some more use of their battle.net currency.. well it would be brilliant to use it for bmah.
I see it coming.......

As a company blizz want to make money (which is only fair) and I would bet that blizz will see the revenue opportunity in this. Not to mention there's always people like this poster to defend anything blizz does.
