What is going on over there? Starting to smell like a train wreck.
Cutting stuff to make a release date doesn't seem too unusual. The cynic in me expects them to be added back as micro-transactions though.
I'd agree about cutting not being unusual if this was the only announcement about it. But there's other core changes announced recently that require the entire game to be rebalanced at this late date.

I hope this isn't the developer attitude about dropped loot because there is already too much reliance on crafted loot since its so superior to all of the known beta drops.
That would be because the beta is restricted to NORMAL difficulty mode, not nightmare or anything else. In hardcore, there will be much better loot dropped.This comment was edited on Jan 28, 2012, 15:21.
