they better make a really damn good patch otherwise poe will take a large amount of d3 playerbase once it hits open beta.
on a side note, it's really dumb to be making a patch when the fundamental things of d3 still haven't been fixed. if they're treating d3 like wow then their game philosophy will drive d3 to extinction cause we don't need mmo restraints in an arpg (unoriginal and boring itemization being #1).
I really hope they do not pack PvP into an Expansion Pack. That would be horrible :S. In my opinion it has to be a free update for the community!
I agree, pushing it into an xpac would send a rather clear message, yeah I know companies are there to make profits (their other goal of producing something good is forgotten nowadays) but seriously even corporate greed should have limits.
I hope they will add like 1 yard of pick up radius per 10 levels of Pragon. Would make it something more managable. Right now, any piece with simlar stats have 3-4mil difference in price if it has radius roll.
I'm wondering how they manage their time between the PvP dev, next expansion dev and content patch dev, given the fact that Blizz usually work with small teams... The delayed PvP is not a surprise in my opinion...
Hmm.. Wonder what that development time is going into? expansion or PvP. God I really hope it's PvP I've been looking for a reason to come back to this game other than Paragon Levels and the endless loot horde.
Probably Expansion, i think pvp will actually be in the next expansion so ^^
