Diablo III Finally Kills Auctions
Remember that story we ran oh.... waaaaaaay back in September 2013 that quoted Blizzard saying that it had killed the Auction House in Diablo III but it hadn't? Now it has... apparently.

So, back then a video was produced by Blizzard that outlined that the system was to die. Blizzard states that, "The gold and real-money auction houses are currently scheduled to shut down in all gameplay regions at approximately 3:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday, March 18. Please note that this schedule may change and that the auction houses could be shut down a little earlier or later on March 18." But, but, but...

"All active auctions will expire as normal following the shutdown of the gold and real-money auction houses on Tuesday, March 18. Once the shutdown is complete, items will either be delivered to the current highest bidder or returned to the seller, appearing in each player?s Completed tab. Unclaimed gold will also appear in the Completed tab. Players will be able to claim gold and items and from this tab until June 24, 2014."

Now, let's relive that moment six months ago...

Couldn't they have just tagged the "Epic Items" as non Auctionable in a patch?
