Because I think they are obvious. Just look at the class balance, at Blizzard doing patchups instead of fixing things, at Blizzards lame (literally) way to fix serious issues.
Should I really list all that crap here? It has been said several times before in threads like these. Still people like you dont get it or ignore it with a passion.
I am sorry. I have been playing computer games for over 25 years now and I know what to look for in screenshots and videos. If you cant see those flaws, youre being ignorant.
The gameplay may be nice but the looks just only say "meh" to me. Actually its "gasp" in a negative way. Not only do the graphics look like from a game that was announced 5 years ago, I actually facepalmed when I saw the similarities to WoW in some screenshots. Some models and textures are right out "stolen" from WoW. I bet you want an argument for that. sure here it is:
Compare some textures to those in WoW. They are almost the same, only smaller (thus looking more high res) and different color). In one picture the complete handrailing is a model from WoW. And in another picture the candle holder looks like its imported straight from WoW aswell.
Im too lazy to search those screen shots for you now. I did that before in another forum, and people still acted ignorant, so you might understand why I wont do it here again.
Exactly. If it aint broke, why fix it?
You dont really see how far D3 is from D1&2, do you? I noticed many people dont notice it. Its pretty funny and I can only explain it with blind fanboyism.
I mean its like telling a guy with his car that he has a dent in the bumper. Its there but he just doesnt want to see it. Its creepy, even though its just a game. But if it happens in games, it surely happens in RL too. Thats whats making it scary.
Oh yeah and I played WoW for so long because it was actually innovative at the beginning and the support was much better back then too. And if you ever played a MMO you know how hard it is to quit with all the time and effort you put in your chars. Even if the game totally sucks.
But theres also things that havent changed. For example the lag and netcode is still as bad and shitty as on day one with overloaded slow ass servers.
But it really doesnt matter. Blizzard makes lots of money with their simplistic (in every way) crap and people love em for that.
Ultimatively, just because of that, they can laugh at every critic thrown at them.This comment was edited on Aug 8, 10:31.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
