    They did make their diablo, it's called Hellgate and it failed. They are now going towards Mythos a more colorful game. Anyone find it funny there?

    ignorance is bliss. you should read up on things a bit more before spouting off about something you know nothing about.

    look how pathetic you people are, can't wait 5 days? You want someone to hack a website? You've waited years for a potential announcement, just give it a rest for a few days. It'll be easier when your heart gets ripped out of your chest and stomped again by Blizzard for the umpteenth time.

    If it was easily solvable and could inconclusively be pinned to something then it wouldnt be a teaser and generate no real buzz, or confusion :\

    Oh, so now people can have an opinion other than "it must be Diablo 3". Quit floppin, or quit bitching about people having their own ideas or opinions.

    lol... I think the only thing that everyone on this forum (except you) unanimously agree's up on, is that it is NOT anything Stracraft II related. Can you even provide any rational, or hell ill take Irrational thought as to WHY it would be starcraft 2? The picture, the style of art... everything about it, has NO link in any form to starcraft 2.

    You sir, are the embodyment of fail.

    Is this an SC2 forum? Why would there be discussion of how it is SC2 related? Just like the PC Action (twice) and PC Gamer, everyone freaks out about change, and it HAS to be about Diablo 3, since nothing else is begin developed by a bunch of other companies. Or the fact that Blizzard has two announced games in production. I'm just saying don't count your chickens before they hatch.

    And if you ask me, the picture looks a bit like the crystals from SC that are collected for resources. But that's me not over analyzing a picture.

    It's for SC2. Christ you people get so damn excited over anything new, and automatically point it to D3. Rational thoughts will only help when they do announce it, and cause less pain when they do not.

    hmm im in the midwwest u.s and i get redirected to google, strange..very strange.

    Maybe because your default search engine is google.com. Since your browser was unable to find the site, it took you there instead.

    I am sure the reason for the new patch is to sell more copies of D2 via download, while they develop D3, after they announce it.

    I never claimed to be nice. I didn't say I was better than anyone either. You're the closed minded individual who won't even give a game a chance, because you played a flawed game by the same developer. Every developer has failed at one point or another. Blizzard has done so, and has just been fortunate enough in not releasing those games.

    Just so you know, they are being devoped by different teams. Your logic is flawed though, so explaining things to you is not worth it.

    Iam sorry but who are you to assume what i have and have not done? i have played HLG on its latest patch and it is still a bug ridden game and what kind of company releases a game with that much bugs in it at full price anyway? now you are talking about the mentality of a 12 year old? why do you have to insult people to make your point? don't call me a sheep if u have no idea who i am or what i play. so far in my opinion flag ship is a shitty u should respect my opinion as iam respecting yours...

    How can you have an opinion on something you have never experienced for yourself? Just because you had a bad experience from one game by a developer, doesn't mean that they are all going to be bad.

    iam personally not impressed with hellgate...it was a game that should of been released in 2004 and it was to buggy to play at most points..and if that is any idea of what mythos is going to be then iam gonna have to agree with pwnubis...the games gonna suck and flagship so far sucks too....and i am not a part of the beta but i have researched the game and it does look decent but it is no diablo and with flagship making it i have low hopes

    Mythos is not Diablo, Mythos is Mythos. I am sure you and pwnubis haven't played HgL on it's latest patch, so just because of what others have said, you'll just agree? You're both sheep. If you never played Mythos, how can you tell how good the game is? Give it a try before you go and bash it.

    lol dude if u were trying to back up flagship it didnt work.. all ur doing is coming up with excuses like y they suck ass like ooooh they dont have as much income as blizz. well theres a good reason y they dont have as much money as blizz. haha and i liked the "like it's out of beta now" comment. wait wait, is hellgate london out of beta? cuz just like mythos that game is plain, ruthless shit. and saying that mythos has more potential than diablo 3.. HA. HAHAHAHAHHA. man u must be fuckin joking me. get tha fuck off the d3 forums and go play mythos.

    oh and feedback, feedback from the players themselves eh?
    "I R WANTS TO HAS KOOL WINGs LIKE TYRAEL BUT ONLY ME!!!
    AND I WANTS A SWORD THAT WWs EVERYTHING IN SCREEEEEEN NOW... YA AND I WANTS ENCHANT COPIES JUST LIKE IN WOWSSSSS. EVERYTHING INSTANCED JUST LIKE IN HELLGATESSS."
    i cant stand that game.. its just embarassing

    u set urself up to get flamed when u started chirpin d3 on a d3 forum

    First off, I never mentioned HgL. I've never played it, so how can I say anything about it? I never made excuses, they were examples of how a new game from a new studio is doing well. Considering the game was created for a net code test for HgL, it has drawn a lot of attention. Several sites have started doing reviews of the game, and not one has been negative. Any game that is currently playable has more potential than a bunch of acquired domains for a game that has yet to show itself to the world. Let's see if Blizzard releases the game for free.

    Now about being "flamed", I think you need to do a little better next time. Having the mentality of a 12 year old doesn't help your cause. Just because you get excited because you are on a forum and get to use profanity, doesn't make it a flame. Your grammar and spelling only shows your lack of intelligence. But you keep it up there big guy, some day someone might take you seriously.

    i dont want to sound like a negative nancy but this games budget looks like it was about $33.72! i played the beta and its really kind of embarassing.. there were a couple of the employees that worked on d1 and d2 on the mythos team but all that did was make them create a wow-like d2 knockoff that just feels like it is so uninspired and unoriginal. i dont want to smash ur dreams of a fun game but im just sayin that no company, not even flagship :rolleyes:, can keep up with the quality of games blizz puts out. dont get ur hopes up on this mythos thing. its a dissapointment

    You say you played the beta, like it's out of beta now. I'd say the game has potential, alot more than Diablo 3 does at this point. First off, the game has only been in developement for a couple years, not 7 or more. The developers also take feedback directly from the players themselves. Has anyone at Blizzard asked what we want? They also don't have this cash cow of WoW financing their current and future products. A team of 17 developers created Mythos, and that's where they are today. I think they started wtih 5. Raking in $100 million a month can afford a very large team that should have had Diablo 3 out already.

    I dont think blizzard kinda gives a fuck about diablo fans anymore. Diablo is like the bastard child of blizzard and wow is the love child. They'll be working on their shitty wow for awhile- heard this on a website. But I hope they're wrong. :cool:

    Blizzard is in the perfect situation and they know it. They don't have to release Diablo, because they are making a ton of cash from WoW, and they know that even if they wait 10 years to release another Diablo, we'll all come back. The only thing that will pop their bubble, is for something to release that makes people forget Diablo, or takes a serious chunk of the WoW subscribers.

    There's that latin death row. And there's this guy with a huuge sig ( huuge and full with chaotic lights, omg so frustrating >> ) .. and there's this guy who doesn't approve the other guy's sig.. so he decides to put him in his sig, too( the other guy's sig pic, not the other guy himself, lol). >< ahh,="" yes..="" and="" there="" were="" these="" guys="" always="" watching="" what="" the="" dumbbutt(lol,="" intentionally)="" guy="" is="" posting="" at="" the="" hack="" forums,="" looking="" at="" him="" as="" a="" prophet="" ot="" something="" (="" stuupid="" )..="" and="" searching="" his="" identity,="" and="" still="" thinking="" he="" knows="" smth="" (="" while="" he="" is="" just="" playing="" around="" ),="" i="" say="" wtf!oh,="" and="" the="" binary="" code="" was="" 100%="" stated="" as="" useless,="" enough="" with="" it!="" there="" we="" few="" posts="" ontopic="" and="" saying="" something="" useful..="" as="" the="" finding="" of="" tyrael="" in="" the="" banner'="" the="" theory="" of="" not="" 1,="" but="" couple="" of="" things="" happening="" tomorrow="" ..="" ugh="" i="" had="" my="" thoughts="" distracted..="">> Oh, and there was this post about " the World will end up in 2012 " , it really brought a smile on my face! xD But that's not from the ontopic ones, lol.

    Sorry, if I've missed anything ( roflmao ) , sorry - too much information. X_x

    IMHO : The person who's on the banner is not Tyriel. It may look like him.. and sound like him..(uhh.. the " justice sign ", not MD's perfect voice acting :D ) but it's most probably not him. It reminds me of Baal, when he was visiting Marius.

    I have such big hopes for tomorrow.. can't wait! And to think that now in my country is 9:15PM .. I mean - less than 3h till midnight.. *sighs* I'll have to wait till the morning to see the Big News.. -.- And when I say " news " , I mean it in plural form.. :D ;)

    I removed his sig from my sig. :D

    And it has been confirmed that it is tyrael by MD.

    I think MD actually thinks that the new diablo title will be called world of sanctuary since richard knaak said something about it. "be patient those in the world of sanctuary" or something along those lines. I dunno, maybe he could come in and verify this.

    First off, Blizzard would have purchased any domain that would be a match to the working title. World of Sanctuary just gives him a general domain that can cover all Diablo based games, if it is an RTS, MMO or Hack and slash.

    why does it need to be more? Because you will be disappointed otherwise? Even if it's a confirmation of Diablo 3, how exciting will that be? Blizzard's official announcement wouldn't be for another 2 months, and release will be years away.

    worldofsancutary.com is either a mistake or a clue. I know they'll eventually give up this domain, but they're either trying to throw people off by putting it up during the count down, or that's where we will end up and put it up too early, but didn't want it to obvious by pulling it after it was noticed.

    Oh blades, this thread is beyond control.

    The one thing that holds my emotions down is that knowing even if D3 is in production, how many years is it from release? So they announce a game, and then give you a carrot every 4 months? Is 2011 even a possibility? I don't want them to rush the game, but I have seen too many developers, especially those that aren't collecting nearly $100 million dollars a month ($10 a month x 10 million subscribers for WoW) release a brand new game in less than 7 years, let alone 10. My opinion is that Mythos will become the giant before D3 even hits beta.

    Ok so MD did not say it directly, but I can trust Jetrall, he has been an honest member for a long time.

    I read through the first 14 pages of this thread:

    http://www.diablo3.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6932

    And not one denial of Blizzard overtaking this site. The only real clue is Umaro bitching about someone else bitching about having to wait so long for information. He says he gets the information a month before everyone does. While a domain transfer automatically points to the game being developed, it's nothing worth counting down for 14 days.

    I used to subscribe to the "Bliz takes over this site" camp for quite a while, but have fallen away from that. All these whackjob theories (said with affection) have made me go crazy and now I, as you, don't know what to think.

    My clearest idea though is that Umaro and/or MD have been hired or are in some way under the employ of Blizzard. Huge, online games *really need* talented, creative, involved people to serve as their Director of Community. This person is really the liason between the "game makers" and the "game players". This could also provide plausible cause for a press release. Oh, and under this theory they'd of course be the Director of Community for D3!!

    Note: If this theory is false, which is likely, then I'd like to propose to Blizzard that they consider the idea in the future.

    Why would half the internet link to Umaro and MD becoming anything related to D3?

    i guess you can call it a comic (even though it's technically not)... but anyway, i decided to make a little comic thing of how I think Diablo 3 should be...

    (please rate it)



    episodes 1-3 will take place in hell

    episodes 4-5 will take place in the Sanctuary

    then episode 6 and later will have the main character and his journey to Hell will begin


    So here is episode 1.





    Episode 1: The News



    Deep in Hell....










    Demon *holding an hourglass*: Speak to me.... Speak to me....




    Demon: The eye... It can't be...




    *the demon hurries and runs to a nearby fortress*


    *and goes to the deepest part of it*



    Guardian: What is your business here.

    \

    Demon: I must see Him. We have a great opportunity.





    Guardian: Then go!

    *demon goes into the abyss until he sees Him*





    BELIAL: The Lord of Lies!!!!!





    Demon: My Lord! I have great news!





    Belial: You have always been my most loyal servant. What is it?





    Demon: I have observed the hourglass. The Worldstone, my Lord. It has been destroyed!



    Belial: *is silent for a second* Let me see the hourglass...




    Demon: Of course, my Lord!







    Belial: It cannot be...




    Demon: It is true!




    Belial: Then we must attack while the Sanctuary and Heaven is off guard. You must go notify Azmodan. It is time to stop the war over Hell and start the war over Everything. Thank you... You may leave...

















    Episode 2: The Reunion

    Meanwhile... In a place below Hell...






    Soul: Welcome... my Lord... Welcome to the Burning Hells... I hope you enjoy your stay....





    Diablo: I sense Death here....




    Soul: No worries... You are not dead... Not for long... You should be happy...




    Diablo: My brothers are dead... I am dead....




    Stranger: No you are not...




    Diablo: A lesser demon.... A demon lord possibly... What do you know?



    Soul: He knows a lot my Lord... He is the Oldest here...



    Diablo: Who is he?





    Stranger: You know me very well... The problem is that you don't recognize me...



    Andariel: The Lord should recognize me...





    Diablo: Andariel... Another Evil...



    Stranger: She has been here for some time... She is the first Evil to end up here. I was the third...



    Diablo: No... You can't be... Mephisto?!?!?!? How?




    Mephisto: Being in my previous form is dangerous. Another demon selflessly sacrificed himself to his Lord. I am now in control of him.



    Diablo: How should I be happy? How are we not dead?



    Mephisto: We stand reunited here. But you must realize that our other brother, Baal, has went to the Worldstone. There, he attempted to corrupt it but was defeated by Tyrael and another nameless mortal. We do now know what happened to the nameless mortal but we think he is dead. Tyrael, on the other hand, has destroyed the Worldstone, thinking that he can save the Sanctuary. But he was a fool. The Gate is now open to the Sanctuary. All the demons are now free to roam it. Tyrael has realized his mistake and is now on the run from the Darkness. He knows his time is short.



    Diablo: You have decided to stay here, correct? While I leave?




    Mephisto: My time is done working for the forces of Hell. My power is diminished and Baal has now vanished from existance. You are the only one powerful enough. I shall stay and control this place while you go and find the way to Heaven. They still do not know of the destruction of the Worldstone. Take advantage of it. The armies of Hell are now under your command.



    Andariel: I shall stay here with you, my Lord.




    Mephisto: The strenth of this place is weakening. Soon it will just become another part of Hell. Diablo, you must win this...



    Diablo: Don't worry, my brother. My brothers shall NOT die in vain.









    Episode 3: The Preperation


    Back in the normal hell...







    Belial: How are the preperations?



    Demon: The armies are now organized. Azmodan has now joined your side. He will work with you.




    Belial: Sonneillon, you have always given me good information. For that, I am putting you in charge of leading the army around the Sanctuary. Do you accept?





    Sonneillon: Of course! It's an honor, my Lord!



    Belial: Good.... good... You must go to Azmodan and tell him to get ready to attack the Pandemonium Fortress. Once that is gone, Hell will finally be Hell.



    Sonneillon: Of course!



    *He leaves*

    Belial (after sitting down): I shall gain control of the Sanctuary... I will control Hell... I will kill everything... But now... I need to act...







    But in another part of Hell...







    Azmodan: Well... What does he have to say...



    Sonneillon: The Lord said that you, the Lord, must destroy Pandemonium Fortress. You must destroy all the Light Forces that remain in Hell. He put me in charge of the attack on the Sanctuary.





    Azmodan: Interesting... Tell him that our armies should join in the City of the Damned, near the entrance of the River of Flame.... Tell him to be there... I shall come as well....




    Sonneillon: I shall tell him....



    Azmodan (after the skull dies in his hand): This shall be interesting....









    Going back to the Fortress...









    Guardian: The Demon is here.



    Belial: Bring him in.



    Guardian: Of course....


    *Sonneillon comes in*



    Sonneillon: I have a message... from Azmodan...




    Belial: Yes... I am listening....




    Sonneillon: He wants to meet at the City of the Damned. He wants to come as well. He said that you should come...



    Belial: Is that all?




    Sonneillon: Yes...



    Belial: I shall come... But don't tell him... Don't reply... I want him to be wondering...













    Episode 4: Hell is Hell




    In the City of the Damned...
















    Sonneillon: We are here, my Lord...




    Belial: Azmodan has not arrived with his army... We have ours...





    Sonneillon: He said he would come after you, my Lord...



    Azmodan: No.... I am here... Behind you...





    Belial: Good.... I have been waiting for you...




    Azmodan: Let hell be hell.



    Sonneillon: My Lords. Shall we begin the attack?



    Belial: Do so... I will join the battle myself.






















    Azmodan: Kill them all!







    Belial: DIE!!!!!!!!!!





    Belial: They are dying!




    Belial: It's a victory!









    After the battle...







    Sonneillon: My Lord, we have searched and searched but Tyrael is not here...



    Azmodan: I knew he wasn't here... He must be hiding in the Sancuary...

    '


    Diablo: I think I know where you might find him....

    I just wanted to reply so that all these pictures show up again.

    You could just buy the battle chest, which includes D2, D2LOD, D1, and a strategy guide for $39.95 (used to be $19.95, but it got raised for some reason.)

    You're right, if I wanted to buy it today. I bought both on the day of release. I was actually on vacation in another state when D2 originally released, and played on my dads laptop all I could.

    First off, none of the former major players from Blizzard North are responsible for Mythos. They oversee the entire operations of FSS or have more roles related to Hellgate:london. Mythos is lead by Travis Baltree who created FATE, which was a great free game created mostly by Travis. Mythos compares to the diablo series, only in being in the same genre. Hack and slash button smash. Obviously, some of the ideas from Diablo are used, but that can be said for any hack and slash created after Diablo. There's no discrediting Diablo for being a pioneer series. Mythos is a great idea that has moved from net code test created by a very small team, to what it is now which is a fairly diverse game with increased staff. The game hasn't been in serious developement for that long, remember it was to be a net code test for Hellgate:London. If I had to compare Diablo 2 at it's release time to Mythos, which is still in beta, I would say Diablo actually had a story, but was behind it's time in graphics. Mythos currently lacks a story line, but has graphics relative to it's time. I am looking forward to the next Diablo installment, but Mythos is far from a failure. I will never have to invest a dime in the game if I choose to, but I had to shell out $50 for Diablo 2, and another $50 for the expansion.

    Not to be a "debbie downer" but I think the hype is bigger than what will truely be revealed. Most everyone who has ties to Blizzard, or has been involved in Diablo since it's creation are not really excited about this count down. Most are saying it will be a domain transfer. Is this really that exciting? Yeah, I guess if you really need to know that Blizzard is working on Diablo 3. Most everyone is aware of it already. I would also watch out for an "April's fools" joke for May 1. The registrar information for this domain is linked to someone who is known for pulling internet pranks time and time again.

    One other reason I believe it to be something not as big as it is being made out to be, is there is no mention of this outside of this network. Therefor, it is network related, and probably means this site will be taken over. The one thing else I beleive it to be would be a trailer of some sort, possibly a teaser.

    It is stated that Blizzard knows of it. There is no official announcement on www.blizzard.com about any sort of countdown or reference to May 1. Would they really give exclusive rights to a fansite to announce something big? I don't believe they would. I know Blizzard and the people who own this site are close, but I just don't see it being anything other than this domain being moved to Blizzard's registrar and this site being renamed.

    I used to work for HP. Of course that was before Carley was axed, and why I "used" to work there. Haha

    I would imagine Blizzard wouldn't keep secret projects out in the open for anyone to see. But I am surprised something hasn't leaked. A programmer telling a friend with a big mouth, or a maintenance guy who happened to see something. IT amazes me that it can be kept a secret, especially in the day and age of the internet. I mean, we all know they are working on it, but the fact that there isn't even the slightest leak is crazy to imagine.

    As far as the OP, I don't know why it came to me, but I figured there had to be some information divulged in the whole "red tape" thing. Figured it would make it out with that.

    seems odd that they would only have to mention that something is being worked on. IF I was acquiring a company, I would want to know what it was and what kind of impact it would have in the future. How do they know they're not throwing all their eggs into one basket, with something like SC Ghost? (this is just an example)

    Just something that I thought of, wouldn't there have to be some sort of disclosure available to stock owners of said organizations about what properties either have or are currently working on to place a value on each of these organizations? I am no business man, but I would think there would have to have been some mention of a title that is currently in the works by Blizzard to stock owners. Thoughts?

    Mythos is a very good game. D2 like, with more of a fantasy world. The current beta build is not very big though. Essentially 2 acts of D2. The game plays a bit like WoW. The next 6 months of this game will be great. The developement has changed dramatically, all for the good.

    I'm really sorry if these questions offend anyone or make me seem stupid.. I have always been wondering. Seeing as Blizzard has Starcraft2.com registered.. why wouldn't they have Diablo3.com registered, especially since all the evidence has come up lately about Diablo 3 possibly being made.

    Guess the right dollar amount hasn't been achieved. I am sure there would also be requests for alpha and beta spots, as well as a free copy of the game. I am sure they will eventually come around to the owner, but there is no point since there isn't a Diablo 3 yet.

    I love how the smallest bit of information gets out (even being several months old) and everyone's panties get in a bunch. Even if it is Diblo 3, and has been production for 10 months (that's how long they have been hiring Next-Gen MMO programers) it's still a ways off for announcement. And you won't hear about it from Blizzard until they want to make it official. I am a bit surprised that more info hasn't leaked, with employees coming and going.

    Well, I am sure noe that team 3 is working on SC:Ghost, and they have yet to begin on Diablo 3. I find it interesting that they are hiring leads for this Next Gen MMO. Leads me to believe they don't even have a team started on the game. Sad to see. D3 is atleast 3 years from beta.

    Hellgate:London is made by Flagship Studios. I doubt an announcement of any sort from Blizzard will effect game sales of Hellgate:London. Even if they announced D3, it would be atleast a year from beta. People aren't going to wait around for that.

    posted a message on Here's The Truth...
    The entire team didn't leave, but a good majority, and all the major players left from Blizzard North. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_North They combined what was left with Blizzard. One major person stayed (Chris Metzen) but without the rest of the team that was dedicated to the Diablo series, it's going to be very difficult to recover.

    HgL is not Diablo III, but it is based on the principles that the Diablo team wanted to create for Diablo III. There have been many references to that in articles. Obviously, they can't use the Diablo name or likeness fearing Blizzard would sue them right out of the gaming industry.

    Diablo III will be big just by name, but it remains to be seen if it has the longevity of Diablo II.

    WoW has been over the 10 million mark for accounts of WoW in the past, and I doubt that number will grow. It is in fact getting smaller. Picking up 1.5 million new people could happen with the expansion, but it will drop back down after 6 months. People who have played WoW will want to see it, but if they gave up on it at any point, they will eventually give up on the expansion as well.

    Blizzard is not taking the best approach for Diablo. The amount of cash being brought in from WoW should be directed at Diablo. Bring in more developers for Diablo III should be their top priority, but they continue to make WoW their baby. I am willing to bet, with the success of WoW, that Diablo III will be an MMO. They'd be crazy not too.

    It's not as popular there as it is here in the states. Even if it is "bigger than Blizzcon", it's still a German based conference, which means very little American coverage. I know when E3 is, I had never heard of this event until 3 weeks ago. They did announce SC2 in Korea, since that is where it is most popular, but I don't think they would do that to American fans with Diablo.

    Why would they announce D3 in Germany and not 3 weeks earlier at home? I can't believe anyone actually thinks they will announce D3 at a Germany gaming conference. There will be no mention of D3. If they wanted to make an impact with an announcement, they would have done it at Blizzcon, since it is their conference.

    Quote from "preston181" »
    Starcraft: Ghost's patent is dead. It's not coming out anytime soon, if at all. I don't necessarily hate Blizzard, but it sucks every time we see a new WOW game come out, and have to wait yet another year for Diablo 3. Heck, we get starved on just patches/new content for D2!

    It would be nice if Blizzard even made a new franchise for the console gamers. Today's consoles (PS3, Xbox 360) have hard drives and plenty of ram/video memory to run anything they make quite well. And, both consoles have an online system for new content and patch delivery. I'd even be for a port of Diablo 2 to the Wii. I'd love to pwn some people with the Wiimote and nunchuck.

    SC:Ghost has not been offically cancelled. I never said it was coming out soon, but it still has the potential to be released.

    The thing Blizzard knows is that no matter how long they take to release the next in a series, people will still buy it (unless it bombs in beta). The thing that they don't understand is that most every other developer releases game much more quickly than they do. If they don't start moving more quickly on titles, paying more developers, they will lose their grasp on certain genres.

    SWG has never had the amount of accounts that WOW currently has. Blizzard said they would be releasing a new expansion for the game every year. $50 per person who buys it, plus that $13 a month means big money. It's all about the money.

    I don't see them waiting until the last few hours of the event to announce a game. They didn't do it for SC2, why would they do it for D3? My guess is that it will be Starcraft: Ghost. D3 was hyped, but it won't be announced.
