    Nothing new from Blizzard though....



    The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t...

    RAGE FACE. Seriously though. How many times have we been disappointed by this man.

    For some reason, I was kinda skeptical and did not raise my expectations too high. But, it is always a bummer when something is not delivered as announced.

    Nothing short of this, give it till right before or after new years for blog, give it till mid-late feb march for patch if that lucky

    I was rather skeptical when Jay tweeted that it was coming very soon. Blizzard has a long-established company policy of not promising ANYTHING on ANY timescale until they know with 99.9% certainty that they will meet whatever time they state publicly. This isn't the first time Jay has apparently disregarded this.

    This man doesn't take these kinds of decisions. :)

    Moving this to PvP btw.

    I don't understand why blizzard management continues to keep this guy in their offices
  • #9
    He said on twitter a fews days ago that the holidays are causing issues.

    "why blizzard management continues to keep this guy in their offices"

    If they weren't happy with him being the game developer they would have gotten rid of him already.

    I'm not even slightly surprised. Never trust Blizzard's words when you see "soon™" somewhere in the text!

    It's Blizzard management most likely that has told him "About that tweet you send, turns out we'll have to delay those. You'll have to update that tweet".

    It's then easy to point the finger and say "management said so", but it's actually, at least the way I see it, much more honorable to say "turns out it's not gonna be as soon as I thought".

    I think their use of "soon" should be interpreted as they intend it. And that is they really want it to be soon.

    There is no reason to think otherwise, is there?

    isn't this pretty standard procedure, especially from jay wilson? -.-

    what "complications" can stop a blog?

    Accidently ran into one of krip's youtibe videos. He pretty much explains what i was thinking. He explains why pvp is delayed. And i agree 100% with his reasoning.

    Imagine your family tells you you're having a delicious roast for dinner some time this month, now lets say that the roast was scheduled to be eaten this week. Your siblings/father/mother/whole family say they cannot make it to dinner tonight so therefore the roast has been pushed back to a night later in the week and instead of having some gravy with the roast you're going to have some applesauce because your father doesn't like gravy (and what he don't like aint welcome!) Now because of this change in topping for your roast you have decided to add or remove certain side-dishes to the roast, adding or removing some vegetables to suit the applesauce. Because of this change it has also pushed back the night of the roast because you don't have the ingredients to suit the applesauce (and it just wont be right to have the wrong vegies with applesauce!!)

    Now translate what I said into development talk. Things can go wrong in the production. They don't want to put out information that isn't actually correct! I can imagine that they don't want to release the blog or information on the blogs release when they feel that certain things need a bit more tweaking and adjusting.

    That being said, hurry up blizz! :olddiablo:
    Bashiok - Blizzard Representative - 08/01/2011 -"So how many skill combinations are there now? Well taking into account 6 active skills, all the rune combinations, and 3 passives we currently expect each class to have roughly 2,285,814,795,264 different build combinations."

    It's too bad he doesn't read this. But Blizzard, you need to replace Jay. He's toxic for your company, and literally does one thing. Dissapoint us all with his 'news'. PvP was at least playable before release. (Blizzcon) There's no excuse to have kept us waiting this long. I've invested $60 dollars into promises that aren't met until after I've lost so much interest in the game that I stop checking.l

    I'm also suprised he still has a job. Hopefully he will be fired before the expansion is in development.

    Agree, I don't like him.

    Also I hope there will be PvP much faster...
