Blizzard on Diablo III

The Diablo III Forums have a Message from Mike Morhaime reflecting on Diablo III in the two months since the action/RPG sequel launched. He recaps and explains the game's growing pains after launch, and goes on to discuss its future, saying they are working on a way to make the game playable without playing Diablo tycoon on the auction house, reducing issues related to the game's always-on requirement, and they are "also working on a gameplay system that will provide players who have max-level, high-powered characters new goals to strive for as an alternative to the 'item hunt'." Here's a bit:

You’ve seen some of that work already in patch 1.0.3, and you’ll see additional improvements with patch 1.0.4. On the game balance front, this update will contain changes designed to further deliver on the team’s goal of promoting “build diversity,” with buffs to many rarely used, underpowered class abilities. Another topic we’ve seen actively discussed is the fact that better, more distinct Legendary items are needed. We agree. Patch 1.0.4 will also include new and improved Legendary items that are more interesting, more powerful, and more epic in ways you probably won’t be expecting.

We’re also working on a number of interface updates, including social improvements that will allow players to more easily view their friends’ achievements, more quickly join games, and more efficiently communicate with each other. In addition, we’ll be making updates to the auction house in the future to provide players with better information through tooltips and notices, offer improved search functionality, and more.

LMAO! Talk to me again when you get your panties unwadded there, sparky. Jesus dude - is Diablo 3 your mom or something? Lighten up.

I'm not the grown adult crying in every D3 thread about how butthurt they are over "entertainment".

Nor do I go around hoping that others experiences are intentionally ruined by hackers.

You seemed like a good guy Prez. Turns out you are just a sad individual like the others around here that obsess over games and the companies that make them, spewing hatred over what you feel they owe you.

Wow, you are just completely, utterly irrational. You literally take any insult against Blizzard and Diablo 3 as a personal insult and interpret that as a call to arms to ATTACK!!! I find myself more and more being embarrassed for you by how you literally lose all sense of perspective and reason in Diablo/Blizzard threads. I find it sad but at the same time amusingly ironic that you question my "adulthood" while you are busy lashing out like a spoiled child at others because they don't like things you clearly have a creepy, unhealthy obsession with. You are worse than a fanboy; you're a mindless sycophant. I truly feel sorry for you. Feel free to unfriend me, put me on ignore, build voodoo dolls in my likeness, whatever your sad little existence feels is required in punishment for my egregious offenses against Blizzard by having the GALL to speak badly about them and their shitty game. But if you think I'm going to stop speaking my mind because it upsets you, you can just fuck off. Ain't gonna happen, no matter how much it hurts your wittle feewings. Bigcry

You know, I'm starting to feel real pity for Krovven. When one lives a life like Krovven does... it is deserving of pity since he probably doesn't know how to act differently.
