I doubt it since there were people still on that forum who were still botting with no issue. Not sure what they are using to detect it but it is not smart enough and it is only hurting the regular players. They really just need to open up drop rates a bit more so we can ignore the AH entirely but then that would kill their cash cow.
...no one will use it since the 25 cents per 100k gold is way the hell higher than what the going rate is right now from the gold selling sites.
Not true gold selling sites have increased their prices to compensate. I used to check the gold buying sites to get an idea of what to list my gear for on the RMAH and the prices are much much higher today than they were on monday. You could buy 170million gold for $200 on monday and now it is $460 for the same amount.
All the RMAH did was allow these sellers to go legit and for blizzard to get a piece of the action it has done nothing to help the everyday gamer. Sort of sad honestly.
