D3RMT has many new features on the horizon focusing primarily on the community. Let's take a look at some of the new and upcoming features.
Today we updated profiles to provide a news feed system such as those found on many social networks. This feed currently displays your posts, threads, ratings, comments, sale history, auction house favorites, and auction house subscriptions. In the future, more items will be added to this feed which you will learn about in just a bit.
Profiles will be receiving a tab for screenshots and videos. You will be able to upload your screenshots and link to YouTube videos here, as well as view screenshots and videos on other user profiles. Screenshots and videos added will be featured on your profile feed.
Many actions throughout the website will award an achievement. Some achievements will grant you a reward such as in-game items, gold, or crafting. Achievements earned will be featured on your profile feed as well as an achievement tab on your profile.
The website will be gaining an entirely new section dedicated entirely to the community. Newly added screenshots and videos will be visible here where other users can up- or down-vote submissions, and the screenshot and video with the highest net votes for that day will be featured in a more prominent display. This is just one example of what you will be able to find in the community section.
We have begun working on a website that is optimized for mobile browsers.
We have added a new feature to user profiles: sale histories. Here you will be able to log all of your auction house sales, whether they were sold for gold or real-money, and view sales made by other members. In the future, we plan on using this information to display statistics such as recent sales, highest selling price for specific items, and more (you will be able to opt-out of this if you'd like.)
To use this feature, simply head over to your profile and click the Sale History tab on the left. Enjoy!
Hopefully this lessens the issues of rubberbanding by quite a bit that users have been experiencing for a while.
Below you'll find a list of hotfixes for the month of August which address various gameplay and service issues affecting Diablo III.
Hotfixes are updates we make on our end without requiring you to download a new patch. Some of the hotfixes below will go live the moment they are implemented, while others may require a restart to go into effect. As always, please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update.
The search functionality on the auction house is being increased from 3 to 6 parameters which will make finding that perfect piece of gear just a bit easier.
No longer will you have to wait for auctions that will never end, in 1.0.4 you will be able to cancel any auction at any time as long as it does not have any bids
You will be able to search for stats on legendary items, I wish that existed when I was looking for my Stormshield.
My favorite change that was talked about today - the ability to see the stats of completed items.
Not auction house related but a few items are having their color changed which will make it much easier to notice potions and gems among other items.
Today is the first of the monthly D3RMT giveaways and we are starting with a big one. We are giving out 1,710 unidentified rare items with a mix of item level 62 & 63 and 186 level 60+ crafted Legendary items to be spread out to 100 winners.

The contest begins today and will be open until August 15th 11:59PM PDT, when the winners will be decided.
