I wrote all that I did, solely because I loved D1 and D2, but my heart fell out unassistedly with Diablo3. The signs are everywhere. You could even be a Blizzard mole, becuase there ARE thousands of them out there moderating forums world wide.
I wanted D3 to succeed, I really did. Heck, I even wanted the Auction House to mature into something that could be fair to all those that chose to either PAY or grind their way there,
THE FUCKING PROBLEM THOUGH, is that the TIME everyone invested NEVER EVER got to have the same items that you could buy outright. Time is money, to an extent (time is more valuable) , but how many people that put in over ten thousand hours into finding nothing as worthy as a post $60 item on the auction house, that is a design issue.
This game does NOT reward farming, that is bad point #1.
This game does not offer its forum unique avatars, because apparently , they are all the same ====> LABRATS
This game does not offer any haunting feelings, they are all smoothed over with WOW ART. why is the scariest features about Diablo 3 have to be endearing or almost apologetic to the viewer?
The changes you speak of, are TEMPORARY I mean, less than 1% of the time inbetween updates (I know, you guys at GGG must be choking on laughter at my post)
I'm just emotional like this, I am a responsible citizen, I distribute over 5 Billion dollars of PC hardware annually, I just fucking hate Diablo 3 in its current state. I haven't even logged into seasonals yet, just reading the demise about people getting to lvl 70 in hop jump skip. I don't care, I know I won't reach top 1000, though I could have almost if I really wanted to , as not many more than 1,500 remain playing this game.
