Good old Blizzard, delivering a great game, giving us hours of fun gaming and still we manage to get slightly annoyed by delays in parts of a game we have already paid for. I am perfectly happy to wait for the real money auction house… no wait I am not, it annoys me, but then I remember it is just a game and I can still play it.
For those of you who do not know what I am moaning about then it is the fact that the RMAH (Real Money Auction House) has been delayed, but this time without a launch date. Security is going to be a massive concern for Blizzard when introducing something new like the RMAH.
Money is involved and of course we want it to be as secure as possible. As for when it is going to be launched we do not know yet, all we know is that when it does launch Blizz want it to be the smoothest experience possible, which is understandable.
Here is the quote from Blizzard:
In light of the post-launch obstacles we’ve encountered, we have made the decision to move the launch of the real-money auction house beyond the previously estimated May time frame. As we mentioned in our original announcement, our goal has always been to ensure everyone has the smoothest experience possible when the real-money auction house launches, and we need a bit more time to iron out the existing general stability and gameplay issues before that feature goes live. While we don’t have a new launch date to share just yet, we’ll have more information soon.

With most of Blizzards games you are guaranteed some trolling and hate mongering of some sort. For anyone concerned about account security then Blizzard had this to say:
To that end, we’ve also seen discussions regarding the possibility of account compromises occurring in ways that didn’t involve these “traditional” methods — for example, by “session spoofing” a player’s identity after he or she joins a public game. Regarding this specific example, we’ve looked into the issue and found no evidence to indicate compromises are occurring in this fashion, and we’ve determined the methods being suggested to do so are technically impossible. However, you have our assurance that we’ll continue to investigate reports such as these and keep you informed of important updates.
Now if a company as experience and large as Blizzard says they have investigated the issue, then we surely have to believe them don’t we?
What are your thoughts on the RMAH, do you think you will forever live in a world of Diablo 3, selling items to make enough money to save the world from the Prime Evil? That is the dream…
