I'm selling up and leaving until the games been reworked. So much is wrong with it and this blog is the final nail in the coffin.
It's a shame because I love the art direction they took. Buuut the itemisation is poor, crafting is non existent, pathetic build diversity and we have no idea at all to what direction they're taking the game.
Not me.......after seeing Blizzard say they will not be implementing Team death match to the game and probably not ever = GG fail. I used to think they were just a bit confused on how to manage Diablo 3...but now I just see them as liars. They have been talking about Team death match since pre-release...now it doesn't even exist. GG
Those things Blizzard are giving away are also being given away for Warcraft players with equivalent loot. So it's not a marketing strategy. It's just something nice for the fans. Unless you mean that giving away stuff is a marketing strategy...
Would it be better if they didn't give things away?
And yes, I'm still a fan. Never been a big follower of PvP in any game. The news doesn't hurt me much.
