The only reason I can think of for removing the auction house is if they wanted to do away with trading altogether, because old fashioned trading is just an extremely inconvenient auction house. Because I can't see them doing that, I am forced to conclude that they have changed the loot system so that you can rely on self-found gear. But if players are not forced to resort to the auction house in order to progress, then you cease to have a problem, so why remove this convenient feature?

Life is imperfect and unjust; quit your moaning, stay on your toes, and make the best of what you are given. If your tenured professor sucks (and for me, most of them did), pull your socks up and study by yourself or with friends. It all goes downhill from here so better get used to it.

I know they've probably been working on this for a long time and they just want a return on that investment, but I think it's going to hurt them in the long run when it's revealed to be yet another lackluster Blizzard offering.

If they let kids dance and create music together somehow ("collaborative in-game activities"), then I can see this becoming a success, if they pull it off well. However, the fact that they didn't give any details regarding the gameplay tells me that this unlikely to be the case.
