Diablo 3 is already experiencing an economic crisis
The responsibility Blizzard has in trying to maintain order in Diablo 3 is intimidating. Already people have voiced their displeasure with the need to always be online, now it appears that Blizzard's decision is justified. Asian servers were taken offline recently due to reports of item duplication, an exploit that would destroy any sort of economy the auction house has already established.
With the Real Money Auction House expected to release tomorrow (according to Diablo 3 itself), Blizzard is already taking extra precautions. Now, in order to add real currency to your Battle.net Balance, you will need to be using a Battle.net Authenticator (mobile or otherwise). Blizzard community manager Kaivax clarified
While these authenticators are freely available, I for one do not care enough to begin engaging in this practice. Anyone feel like using an authenticator will ruin their experience or is this just another security measure many will opt out of?

**EDIT** So from my understanding.... Could the real money be used anywhere? The way it sounds it seems like it's stuck electronically in Battle.net...
Scratch that; you could use it anywhere, they gave people the choice of Paypal. Which is convenient.
There is your winning answer
I get always little upset when I hear that a game is online-only, but after sometime I also always remember that it is not the developers giving you the middle finger, it's because of the douchebags who exploit everything and cheat.
Well, glad to see Blizzard deciding to make Diablo 3 Online-Only in order to remove any possibility of item-dupes as well as game-hacks ever appearing for their game!
Wait a second. There are people spending real money for virtual items in a game? Well, when I put it like that, it sounds similar to weapon skins or extra character DLC.
I don't get why people would even consider not having an authenticator. They are easy to use and they make your account more secure.
an authenticator is no problem when I have WoW, SC2 and Diablo 3 all on my battle.net account. Having extra security against those hacks and phishing scams makes me feel at ease. Authenticated since 2009
Live cash auction house is a bad idea. It took ebay and paypal almost a decade to get it figured out, and there continues to be fraud beyond that affecting both companies to this day. WTF is Blizz thinking with all the rampant hacking and spamming that is still going on with WoW. I still get phish emails for WoW, and I haven't played in almost 4 years. GL Blizz with AH but it was a cash grab and a dumb idea. I would hate to work their D3 support line for the mess they are starting.
I have the authenticator on my cellphone. Its extra protection that benefits everyone and it doesn't bother me much to take these extra 40 secs to get the code from my phone and enter it on my battle.net account. Every time a game's economy is in crisis its the Asians doing it >.<
