EU Diablo III Patch Live; Repair Costs Draw Fire

The European Diablo III Website announces the new version 1.0.3 patch is now live for the action/RPG sequel in Europe after yesterday's patch for the game in the Americas. They once again supply the complete patch notes. With the patch having settled in in the Americas, outrage over increased repair costs is growing, as there is this petition and this one looking to get Blizzard to address them.

The worst part is some fucking idiot developer was thinking about the loot system and completely ignored the fact that, even to this day, Diablo 2 players are still happily doing Baal/Meph/Pindle runs and trading items whereas this shitbird loot model has everyone up in arms a little over a month from release.

They're just too ignorant to realize what worked.

Consider me a new member of the 'waiting for Guild Wars 2' club from this point on...

It is all to fuzzy for me to remember this day:
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/14885/diablo-ii-ships

But something tells me if we had forums going at the time, and you went forward from that date, you would see all sorts of hatred geared towards D2, they didn't fix everything with their first patch...or even 5th patch.

I get it, some of the hatred is warranted, but some is just misguided. Probably best to put it down for a few patches if you are going to have an aneurysm.

Just for fun, some other articles from that day:
Half-Life 1.1.0.1 Released
TRIBES 2 Q&A
Homeworld: Cataclysm Previews
3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 AGP video card - review

There is also this warning the following day:
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/14935/diablo-ii-warning

Mentions of issues on launch day:
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/14952/out-of-the-blue

Another warning a couple days after release:
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/15064/diablo-ii-warning

Another update on the 6th of July that fixed some major issues:
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/15158/diablo-ii-bugs
"we expect it to be online shortly. Most noticeably, the patch will fix a bug that causes single player characters to be deleted when a multi-player character of the same name is deleted. Additionally, the patch will fix a bug that prevents some players from finishing Act II."

A cool post from Looni
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/15236/fruit-of-the-loon

And 3 patches in 10 days:
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/15304/diablo-ii-patch

There is a ton more info, and going through the archives for a few minutes was a lot of fun! (The sad part is I remember a lot of those stories!!!)

And one great link that just shows they aren't all that off form eachother:
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/15479/battle-net-off-line

And this a couple days later that indicates there were **GASP** A COUPLE DAYS DOWNTIME: (so all of those metacritic scores are off base, as the scores for d3 were all given in the first week - and the d2 ones were not....as they should indicate the same score with the same problems)
http://www.bluesnews.com/s/15535/diablo-ii-status

This is the lingering effect of shutting down Blizzard North all those years ago.
**Looks at story just linked.....**
You sure about that?
