Maybe they're actually pulling their fingers out and not trying to rush it so it flops massively? Only positive response i can think of. Seeing as they rushed most of the game maybe but who knows but those blizzard peoples.
I'm really hoping it hits soon. None of my friends even play anymore. Someone of them have lost so much interest they already uninstalled the game. PvP was the main reason I played D2, and it is the single thing I am most looking forward to in D3.
