Rob Pardo on Jay Wilson and Diablo III

Blizzard CEO Chief Creative Officer Rob Pardo has added his thoughts to the forum post from Jay Wilson about leaving the Diablo III team. Rob expresses disappointment at some responses to this, expresses pride in the action/RPG sequel, restates Blizzard's commitment to refining Diablo III "until it is the best game in the franchise," and takes full responsibility for who the game turned out:

This thread saddens me greatly. I know that the Battle.net forums have earned a reputation for rough justice, but I do not believe justice is being served by how people are speaking about Jayís departure from Diablo III.

I am very proud of the Diablo franchise and what the team was able to accomplish with Diablo III. As a gamer I have enjoyed the game and played for many, many nights with friends and family. Iím not, however, going to use that as an excuse. The Diablo community deserves an even better game from Blizzard and we are committed to improving it. We have a talented team in place and have no intention of stopping work on Diablo III until it is the best game in the franchise.

Iím the only person in this thread who has actually worked with Jay. I hired Jay to head up the Diablo project and had the pleasure of getting to work with him, both in building the team and designing the game. He has great design instincts and has added so much to the franchise with his feel for visceral combat, boss battles, and an unparalleled knack for making it fun to smash bad guys. Iíve worked with many, many designers at Blizzard and Jay is one of the best. He has a great career at Blizzard ahead of him and I guarantee that you will enjoy Jayís game designs in future Blizzard games.

If you love Diablo as much as we do, then please continue to let us know how you feel we can improve the game. If you still feel the need to dish out blame, then I would prefer you direct it at me. I was the executive producer on the project; I hired Jay and I gave him advice and direction throughout the development process. I was ultimately responsible for the game we released and take full responsibility for the quality of the result.

Fuck those losers (Wilson and Pardo).

Glad to see that even the blizzard fanboys are seeing the truth.

It doesn't matter what they see if they keep handing over the money. Gamers have NEVER had a problem complaining, they have a problem making a stand on those complaints. Talking a lot of shit to people anonymously on the web is easy. Putting down the crack pipe instead of just bitching about the low quality of the crack is a lot harder.

But this is Blizzard, so even then. They only ship a title every so often, and they have enough cash flow to survive multiple flops. By the time the next title is ready, the rage will have subsided and people will just buy the shit because its Blizzard.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
