Subject: Blizz - Linked AH ruin the community!
Can't believe you are putting auction houses in all of the capital cities.
Can you please elaborate a bit on the thought process for this?
It is going to absoliutely tear apart the community that already exists... because there was one MAIN hub city for each faction, it felt like a true outpost and return home to from abroad.. it was also THE place to form a group, pitch your wares, duel, trade, chat, whatever...
The other thread clearly shows Stormwind is getting alot of favoritism, and Undercity as well... so while it's not scientific, it's a good indication of how things go.
This is a plea to reconsider placing linked AH and ripping apart the "community" feeling.

By putting the Auction House in only one of the major faction cities per side, we were forcing everyone to only one city. By spreading out the Auction Houses, we are giving players more options on where they want to set their Hearth Stone, a closer journey at the end of the day of adventuring, and a chance to lessen some of the latency that can occur during peak times around the Auction House. After we release them, if they do not function as we would like them to, we will re-evaluate the situation. For now though, they will be going in.
