    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    There is NO doubt in my mind that "buying" characters at level 60 or 70 or hell why stop there.. 80 will be coming. The Deathknight was the first step at how people responded to starting at 55... and resulted in a LOT of players spending more time leveing, gearing and playing the DK... heck MANY leveld one the short distance to 80 JUST as a farming/professions toon.

    Now imagine if Blizz sold a level 70 for the LOW LOW price of $25.

    As WoW declines (and yes it IS in decline) Blizzad seaches for ways to continue to generate revenue. When they feel it has declined enough... they WILL sell high level toons. Guaranteed.

I really believe we are only a short time away from Blizzard actually selling gold, gear, and power leveling types of services. I never thought it would go this way, but this just seems to be foretelling.

    Aha, Aha... So what? I rather see the emblem/heroic/casual as something bigger and more idiotic.

    A good solution to the typical WoW fanboy that goes out with so-called friends against his will, and while a nice looking girl wants to have a chat he tells her off because he needs to check the auction house.

    Dear developers,

    please nerf Rock, it's too overpowered. Paper is fine, however.

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    I...I really don't see why people would pay for those perks, do these people can't stand to log into the game? I know it can somewhat be useful to see auctions from a computer without WoW (or too weak to play WoW) but to a point of feeling like paying so you can manage your auctions from the web browser? I just don't see the point....the AH isnt that serious business to reach such a point of demand.

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    I wonder several things:

    * How is Blizzard gonna prevent some serious dominating of the server economy.
    * How many people are gonna loose their jobs over this due "playing the AH" while in class / work.


    This is a whole different league then non-combat pets and shit. You can actually get an advantage over other players with this.

    (like AH-Bots whern't bad enough, now we have people manually scooping the AH 24/7)

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    Yea in a few months (maybe a year or so) I bet Blizzard will release a chat application for Battle.net including WoW chat... Gold spamming? There's an app for that!
    Seriously why charge 3 $ a month for this thing? Isn't the price that carriers ask for mobile internet enough ?!
    Make it a one time purchase per account or something... :

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    yet another in-game-feature for money.

    and easier gold-making (which on it's own is far to much) is not the worst part. let's assume you are in a raid, you are out of flasks or you or anyone else in the group needs something. you get on you i-phone buy whatever is needed, summon your argent gruntling there you go. your raid does not have to wait or anything.

    or another one: your are farming stuff in one of the old instances or are farming stuff at a remote place. your inventory is full... what do you do? put everything on the AH.

    the only thing that pleases me is that everyone will have an easy time killing players that are /i-phone to sell their goods.

    the other problem with these paid features is that it takes away work-force from the features we pay our 11$-14$ per month.

    it has not been long ago that blizzard got asked about if there would be other class/trade-skill specific mounts, answer:
    we would love to add stuff like that, but new mounts need time programming and we fear that we would have to dismiss a new creature-model if we would do more mounts or pets.
    so if you are wondering where the new dances in Wrath, or archeology, the path of the titans and the guild lvling system never made it into the game:
    programming time was used on more "important" features like the mobile-ah, lil'XT, or other pets and mounts or features you will have to pay for in the feature.

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    I have an iphone but this ap is just rediculas.. I like wow yes i have been playin it since the begining, but seriously if ur that obsessed u need to sit at work or where ever u might be bidding and posting auctions on a video game u really need to re-think ur life to be honest.. And on top of that it actually costs u to do so!!
    Just shows really that they will do anything to grab our money and the sad thing is that 80% of ppl will actually buy this...

    By limiting transactions per day. You can only complete 200 transactions every day. This includes buying and posting auctions. So no, you won't really be able to "dominate the economy" on only 200 transactions per day. And besides, what's stopping someone from doing it normally in WoW?

    You can't be online in WoW and on Mobile AH at the same time.

    9Mil + =/= 9Mil. I put the plus sign there for a reason.

    Re: Introducing the Remote Auction House

    It definitely looks like activision being in charge is starting to have quite the impact. It is not the fact that they are charging money for stuff that is upsetting to me. I could care less about that seing as I know I wont buy it so it doesn't matter to me.

    The part that bothers me is just the fact that it is starting to look like they are putting more and more of their resources into creating new ways to get money out of people instead of just making the game better.

    Activision is the worst company in all of gaming and needs to die.
