The PVP Blog Is Here

    Quote from Mastodon

    Just saying, I am disappointed that PVP has not come out yet. Yet, they did said patch 1.1 for pvp, and we are getting a placeholder atm for PVP. IMO, I am glad that we get something, rather then no new content. It's better to think positive then to surmise the negative. To reiterate, patch 1.1 for PVP and this will only be patch 1.0.7.


    They never planned on a 1.0.7. Before the game even released, they laid out their patch intents for the year, stating there'd be an AH patch, bug patches, a class rebalance patch, etc. They listed the rough intent behind the patches all the way up to 1.0.6 and then went on about 1.1 by the end of the year. They're slipping 1.0.7 in there to stall for time.

    rofl what a blog post...the fact it took them this long to basically write an excuse and not a blog is a joke. They basically just spit in the faces of all the people who paid for the game.

    "Well our idea we've been working on all this time didn't do very well , so we're scrapping it and just enabling 1v1 duels..thanks guys!"


    Uh, excuse me, you're wrong.

    I never intended to PVP in Diablo 3.

    For all I care, they can scrap the entire idea and it wouldn't phase me in the least.


    whoa excuse me bro!,

    let me change that then to everybody but you.

    Gtfo.

    some people are never happy,
    Really I have never seen a more entitled, selfish lot than some of the people posting on this.

    Yes PVP has been delayed. but would you rather have it been released in a form that would give you a couple of hours enjoyment at most, with no objectives, or rewards for playing it.
    or would you rather have something that has some substance behind it, some objectives, and actually gave rewards ?

    as for those people who "quit the game forever" simply because the designers are taking their time and trying to do something correctly instead of some half arsed attempt which would not only cause more problems with the game, but would inflame the player base even further.

    Personally I would rather wait a few more months and have something that looks and plays well rather than having something rushed out and looking like a turd, only to have it tweaked and polished over time. After all no matter how much you polish a turd, its still a turd.


    Really? Well geuss what you waited a few months ...them hyping the pvp 'blog' only for it a be a 'oh shit we're sorry we wasted all this time' post. How about they just release it and let the rest of the public decide. Last time I checked. d2 pvp had no reward, and it had no problems being fun, people adapted at least in the private communities to make ZVZ duels, restricted duels, twink duels, etc.

    PVP doesn't need a reward to thrive, they need to get the bullshit I want a title/gear/mount/pet/whatever the hell WoW gives me mentality.

    Are you insane? You would rather wait few more months? YOU have been waiting 7 months for them to implement something more to the arenas they had already done! What you are talking about is something that has been done and was already ready to use on blizzcon with a need of a few tweaks. Its already more then 1 or 2 YEARS (dont know now when the blizzcon actually was) SINCE THEN.

    wake up man, really do it

    this is something you could have posted back then in may 15. and not now

    Oh! Tears and rage of a PVP crowd, how sweet they taste to my PVE soul.

    PVP was a bad idea in a game like Diablo. It was very tragic in TL2 and it would not have been otherway if it did get implemented in D3. Only thing I'm sad about is they did not scrap the whole idea and started focusing on expansion rather than waste more energy on PVP.

    very dissapointing news, guess this was my cue to stop playing for now atleast.
  • #68
    That's cool that they are adding duels in the next patch. I'm thinking some sort of team deathmatch with objectives. That give players the choice of full all out power or speed, etc.

    Just like the rest of the fucking game, when Jay Wilson is running things, no amount of time will turn your turd into gold. I'd be happy with something. But, I said that about PvE....

    I couldn't care less. Hopefully with dueling in place, they'll put PvP on the back burner a while, and focus on more PvE content.
  • #72
    I don't care about PvP, but this blog was quite bad. After 7 months of hyping some form of PvP, they just gave up and went back to the basic formula... duels.
    It feels like they want to give a cookie to the PvP crowd so they won't yell about its lacking anymore.... I would be disappointed too if i wanted what they promised months ago....
    Meh.... it's a low blow in my opinion, really low.
  • #73
    Well that's pretty disappointing.
  • #74
    I'm not suprised. Diablo has been a shit show since the begining. Why are they pretending it's not up to blizzard standards... They cleary released it half assed. D3 pvp will be half ass no matter how long we wait. Screw D3

    none
  • #76
    OMG OMG OMG... horde mode... that's what they mean right?

    I also don't care about PvP one bit. And so do other members in this forums. Flame the blog all you want, as that would be justified. You didn't get something you really wanted on time so you're free to express your mind. But don't flame other members or pull arguments out of your ass, because your opinion is not "all people's opinion".

    edit: See how this guy below did it? Amazing.

    Totally agree that they took far too long to let people know that it would be delayed for whatever reason, However we as the players are not privy to how the development side of things work. For all we know the descion to scrap the PVP side of things happend a few hours prior to the blog going out.

    if they where to release it and let the public deiced they would be locked into a system that would be harder remove and start fresh and get it right. I don't know anything about D2 having never played it, and we know that dueling is coming sometime in the future.

    I am also guessing that you missed a "*rid of" in your final sentance, which I totally agree with, PVP should not have any sort of rewards or benefits that impact any part of the game, both PVP or PVE wise.

    Actually I have not waited any time for the PVP aspect of the game as it has never been a major interest to me, Sure I will take a look at it, and probably play it as a diversion to farming, however I never got the game for the PVP side of it, and I dont understand the people that did. In fact I would never buy or even suggest to someone a game which is sold with PVE being its primary source of entertainment for the PVP side of it, Especially if the PVP side was not even in the game at the time of release but stated would be in a future patch. if people want PVP in a game then they should ensure that it is available from the moment they are able to play it, or buy a dedicated PVP game, of which there are plenty to choose from.
