Yeah, and no one's able to customise their gaming experience as well. You play the Blizzard way or you don't play at all. Although I suspect this is more about Activision that it is about Blizzard. Just look at their other games.
Just wondering who else is going to be playing hc when d3 comes out I don't think its going to be easy at least to start with so some fellow BoD members to play with should help. At the moment i'm planning on making barb (male) as main and secondary DH (fem).
