They also lambasted Blizzard for their stupid always online and auction house. I still can't believe D3 sold 6m copies. Consumers can be such idiots sometimes.

They tried to do some agile software developement (which is nice when done right), but suffered from a horrendous lack of project oversight. Everyone worked on something, there was no scrum master coordinating all these small, individual goals. HGL suffered from feature creep, from lack of project oversight. There was nothing much to fix, only to bandaid the worst mistakes.
1. HGL was released in an incredibly buggy state. It should have been held.

2. They tried using a nickel-and-dime approach while also charging full price for the game. Even in the era we live in today, that's roundly railed against, but back then it was beyond the pale.

"The Blizzard community is ultimately the reason why we come to work every day"
LOL. If this was true, they'd have all quit by now. The Blizzard community is a cesspit.

Hellgate London was a colossal failure but it was also incredibly ambitious...
