The time to start testing the RMAH is nigh. To do so, Blizzard will be giving all the beta testers an allowance of 50 Beta Bucks (a virtual currency created for the test) as explained in a blog post on Battle.net.
That post included a lengthy FAQ that should have just about every possible question covered. Continue reading to see the full FAQ.
As the beta rolls on, improvements to the game continue to be made. One such aspect that got a little bit of love in beta patch 6 is the Auction House. I posted my initial thoughts on the RMAH a couple months ago but now that we have more information, I’d like to delve a bit deeper.
First, I would like to say that I’m an avid supporter of the RMAH. As I mentioned in my previous post about the auction house, the worst things about Diablo 2 were mainly caused by the third party item selling companies. Having a controlled environment to buy and sell will help prevent many of those issues from reoccurring. However, other factors that play into my thoughts on the subject: I made a bit of money from Diablo 2 and used to work for Blizzard.
