The US-American developer Blizzard follows up its words with action and thus resigns the gold and real-money auction house of action role-playing game "Diablo 3" at the present day. Those responsible have already announced this step some time ago, because beside different opinions of gamers, the developers theirself could slightly identify with the implementation of said marketplaces. The desired and basic gameplay of the title, which is, according to statements by the developers, simply killing monsters in order to receive cool loot, is said to be bypassed by a huge mass.
Items that were involved in active auctions at the time of closure will either be transferred to the highest bidder or remain in possession of the seller. In a tab called "Completed" players can pick up their gold and items only until June 24, 2014. If a player doesn't empty the tab before the date indicated, he will, for better or for worse, lose his possession, which will then be consumed by Treasure Goblins. Furthermore, those responsible answer

"Your Battle.net Balance total will not be affected by the shutdown of the gold and real-money auction houses on March 18, 2014" – the answer to a frequently asked question.
