I never said anything about skill or about being a 'better' player. You just put those words in my mouth. I said to distinguish the players who put more effortinto the game and that WANT to show it to the other players (you don't have to show it). There's nothing wrong with people buying items from the auction house. But for the people that want to show their effortto the other players, they'd be able to do so with this system.
And I agree it's not that big of an issue that someone bought his items, but what's wrong with implementing a system for those that do wish to distinguish themselves?
I clarify, this system isn't in place to distinguish the RMAH players from the rest. It's to distinguish the players who put real effort into the game from the rest.
Alright, then I withdraw my arguement. I just interpreted the part when you said a "good" player as what I said above...so I apologize for that.
If you would want it based on effort, than that's fine I have no problem with that. I even think a few days someone posted about having watermarks or a different fade placed on the the item (or something to that effect). I could see that being a possible solution for it.
