    I personally think EULAs are a joke, and a lot of people who are involved with making software feel the same way. No one reads them, despite forcing you to drag a scroll bar to the bottom, and I could write "You must eat your broccoli and have health insurance" but that does not necessarily mean it's legally binding, it's going to dissaude people from playing d3, or especially as you said Blizzard's not going to waste time and money suing you.

    In a court of law it's only going to matter how reasonable the claim is.

    LOL

    We are aware that, in the Diablo III beta, a 15% transaction was previously displayed when selling items in the Beta Bucks auction house. This was a configuration error, and has been corrected.

    We do not currently have plans to alter the auction house fee structure for the beta, as previously discussed here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4062879314

    As always, thank you for your feedback. This is exactly the sort of thing that makes a good beta test.

    But making the RMAH (and by extension, all of D3) a transparently pure attempt at monetization probably doesn't help the game called Diablo 3 in the slightest from the players' perspective.
    Money is going to be spent on video game items, we all realize this by now. I don't understand why blizzard is the bad guy for wanting to make money off of the game they created. It also has the added benefit of being secure and convenient. Its a win for everyone IMO.

    For the most part they are. Simply because no company would bother to come after you as an individual for breaking it. Still, in those few cases where a company would want to go after someone for breaking an EULA; they would need to have an EULA. So they aren't totally a joke.

    This isn't really different from other contracts though, where you are accepting it on paper. It is unlikely a company would bother to drag you to court just because they had your handwriting on a piece of paper.

    Edit: Oh well, Zokar wins the thread.

    Doesn't that just mean that they accidentally implemented the change in beta instead of the release version.

    Well that certainly takes the RMAH conspiracy to a whole new level.

    No guys, i knew something was fishy here, blizzard will never do that. 15% is too much, they should be satisfied with the 1.25 transaction fee they will get. Come on, i bet if not everyone, atleast 70% of the players will use the rmah atleast 5-7 times a month, if not even more often, and that doesn't mean you will be bying end game items, it will mostly be used for crafting materials and gold which should generate a lot of $$$ for blizzard.
