Jay Wilson admitted that he messed up the game Diablo 3 auction

In May last year, Blizzard introduced a continuation of the cult game Diablo, which was developed about ten years and was a real breakthrough for the huge army of fans of the genre hack-n-slash. But with the release of Diablo 3 players found a very controversial point: the auction, at which both the real and for play money, you could buy and sell anything they wish. And now, after almost a year Jay Wilson, a former chief game designer of the project, admitted that the auction seriously hurt the game.

From the author: I was a fan of the Diablo series since childhood and look forward to release of the third part. But contrary to my expectations, Diablo 3, primarily because of the auction, which drew a lot of other game changes, “do not shoot”. Has become a game for a single pass.

This is due to the fact that the auction has killed interest in knocking out valuable things – an element that was built all the glory of Diablo II. Many simply have invested large sums of euros, others began to collect gold and buy the best at his expense artifacts at auction. But where does this race, even if PVP element of the game is missing, and she is ideally reduced to a pleasant “mochilova pretentious”? Whether you’re three times in the “green” and has the best weapons, all that awaits you – even more rapid passage of the past.

According to Ubergizmo, during the report on GDC 2013 Wilson admitted that Blizzard had no idea how to work the auction. Initially, the developers thought that this would be one way to combat fraud (black market) and that only a small percentage of players will use it. In addition, the prices of things will be regulated from above. But what Wilson and Blizzard did not expect was that the auction will be the single most interesting tool pastime in the game and the whole game will come down to making money, until the first-born evil will tyrannize the world of Sanctuary.

Wilson said that if they could, they would cut off the auction, but alas, Blizzard can not determine how many players share his function, and how much – can not stand. That is a basic off the auction will seriously affect the player base. Wilson also said that Diablo 3 team is working on a new solution , but did not disclose details.

If you’ve played Diablo 3, give your opinion regarding the auction. Has it become a welcome addition to the game, or just kill her?
