Diablo 3 Discussion
it has even affected what games i buy any with a singular and now very short single player get overlooked simply because of the low replay value
Thats ok though cause after seeing Skyrim Diablo 3 went to the back of my list.

Not to mention you have to buy any item with real money and also sell it for real money.
It's a No to Hell No for me.
Obviously this is going to be a pretty hate filled discussion on a cheat website, given that we are not supporters of MP cheating and that's what this game will primarily be, but I can't help shake the appearance that some of you really haven't done the research to to back up what you're talking about.
Lack of Single Player - There is still going to be the ability to play by yourself, they never said that was going away. Yes, there is no offline mode, but there is a Private game mode which allows you to play solo unless you choose to invite people in.
Being MMO-like - There can only be a maximum of 4 people in a game at a given time. Now, this may change with time, but I fail to see how this is making it an MMO like WoW. You're not forced into play with strangers or griefers, but you have the ability to join public games, which is exactly how Diablo 1 and 2 Battle.net play operated.
RMAH - This isn't a feature being forced into people's play style. If you want to farm loot and play through the old fashion way, good for you. You're more than welcome to do that. However, what Blizzard is offering with this breakthrough is a chance to have a secure way of trading items the way players already did in Diablo 2. Have any of you been to D2legit.com? There are many others sites like this one, and it's fairly common for players to dig around the net for ways to buy items with real cash.
Is it against the rules in Diablo 2? Hell yes. Is it clearly something that a major chunk of the players want? Absolutely. The way I see it, Blizzard is allowing us to get away with something that was bound to happen anyway, with insane benefits: As mentioned above, players used to have to dig around the net to find a safe way of getting these trades. Now, rather than searching through pages of Ebay listings, d2legit-like sites, and worrying about potential fraud or scams, we have it all available to us in one, safe, secure, centralized location... And you can partake in the earnings!
Blizzard isn't making items available for sale, they're allowing people to sell them, and there's a huge difference. If they said "Hey give us 5 bucks and you'll get this awesome sword that can 1-shot Diablo" I would be pretty ****ed. But that's not what they're doing.
They're saying "You, as the player, can go out and acquire this item, and if you so choose, make some money off of it." What's wrong with that? Does Blizzard get a cut.. absolutely.. but why shouldn't they? Doesn't PayPal take a bit of your money every time you use their service?
Now, as far as cheating in this game -- I'm a big fan of cheats, as long as I'm not affecting other players and I'm still enjoying the game.. With the always online feature I'm kind of disappointed that I won't get to use a Hero Editor and beef up a char for some fun times.. But does the inability to cheat disqualify it from being a great game? Absolutely not.
I'm putting down Hell Yes and buying my Collector's Edition the day of launch.
Best of luck guys.

And there goes my interest in the game.

I don't want to go off-topic too much, but you could try Path of Exile. People say it's old school Diablo clone and it's free to play.
