    posted a message on Diablo 3 before Starcraft 2?
    "We received news today from an anonymous source from inside Blizzard, confirming that development of StarCraft 2 will be largely postponed until Blizzard's recently announced, and long-awaited Diablo 3 is ready for the market.
    [Starcraft 2] is still being worked on, but only by a minuscule amount of people compared to what [Blizzard] put on the Diablo 3 team.
    This has yet to be confirmed officially by Blizzard, and I personally doubt they will respond. Because this information was leaked unintentionally through a casual conversation with one of our staff members, we can not reveal the name of our source publicly - so to protect this individual and his/her position within Blizzard. Nor can we say that this came directly from Blizzard.

    Nonetheless, this may be good or bad news to you. Personally, I don't mind - both games are equally sought after in my opinion.

    We will do all we can to keep you updated with the latest."

    I know it's a rumor, and very doubtable, but how I wish it to be true :D

    Has the eight been explained yet? Can't be bothered to read the entire thread again for once :) please forgive me :P

    I think it might mean they will announce a new game.

    Diablo
    Diablo 2
    Starcraft
    Warcraft
    Warcraft 2
    Warcraft 3
    WoW
    ???

    Forgetting the fact I don't name Lost Vikings as it seems they do not honor that game anymore, nor Starcraft 2 as it's not released yet.

    That'll be cos it's an animated gif and animated gif's are limited to 256 colours that are web safe. Yet the image you'll be taking will be a png / jpg which can use the full 16 bit colour scale :)

    True enough, meh the hype is confusing me :)

    Hmmm, from this animated Gif it DOES actually look like 100% same... :confused:

    Ya, because the sword is only at like 40% opacity at most, of course it's going to look the same even while there are in fact small differences. I dunno why Blizzard made it look like Shael and Frostmourne while not having a definitive match.

    Oh come on, you can totally see that rune bend and enlarge at points when the Frostmourne's opacity gets higher. It has similarities with the Frostmourne rune, but so does it have with Shael rune.

    Those horns or half-circles or whatever you want to call them just aren't reoccuring anywhere in the image, not to mention the conveniently placed highlight where an eye could be.

    I think it's a demon in the back, at very low opacity, therefore you will only see some very light parts of the image. Hence the whitish horns and glowing eye.


    Couldn't find anything regarding a pentagram though, might look further after dinner

    Could you do that to the whole imagine so we could maybe make out the designs located in the mid right... I think silver may be on to something with the pentagram. Also, maybe im not looking in the right place, but I cant see the horns you are talking about in those pictures

    I'll try, and I might highlight the horns, I'm dumbstruck you don't see it though :D

    Ok, I just played around in photoshop and I'm pretty sure I've found Diablo in the background, or any other demon with 2 horns.

    Look at the original first and follow up with the steps, I'm sure you'll see him aswell.

    Original: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v155/5thDiGiTaL/ice1.jpg
    1st: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v155/5thDiGiTaL/Diablobg2.jpg
    2nd: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v155/5thDiGiTaL/Diablobg3.jpg
    3rd: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v155/5thDiGiTaL/Diablobg.jpg

    Now go and look at the original again, and you'll probably be able to still see those horns, or atleast you can say they're:
    1. Not circles.
    2. Definately not part of the ice as it's not edgy but rounded.
    3. Spaced about precisely far enough to fit in a face while not making the "horns" too big or too small.

    They do for me... not spacing, more like, small set-offs.

    Which is what I based everything on, those set-offs between Diablo and Diablo 2 are the difference. Which is why it was highly unlikely that Diablo and Diablo 3 would be exactly the same. So, taking the same code and just adding III would result in the same pixels I guess, never knew that though.

    Please don't try to nullify my disagreement with your theories on a basis of some fucked up assumptions regarding knowledge of Photoshop. I just don't think it's proof that he in particular particularly copy-pasted it. You could achieve the same effect with a font change. If you look at D1 and D2 they have different spacing. And after someone saves files in Paint under .jpeg, they re-blur, so I don't even know how he managed to get that effect in the first place lol

    True enough on that, but my point wasn't in particular that it was copy-pasted, but fake. I do agree however my assumption it was copy-pasted was unfounded, at most it was a calculated guess :)

    P.S. D1 and D2 do not have different spacing though :)

    I can see what you mean, and I understood it from the beginning, I just do not believe it has any relevance. From what I know, it could be copied on a regular basis. Could be a font renewal, too. I just don't think it's strong enough evidence.

    Meh, if you really did know what I meant, you should know it surely is strong enough evidence. Or you don't have enough knowledge on this.

    Sigh, incomming picture will explain it... give me a few minutes...

    Edit: Sorry for the wait, here it is, http://img413.imageshack.us/my.php?image=comparepicturesh7.jpg.

    You need pretty good eyes on this one, but you will be able to see it if you look long enough. (If you try it manually in photoshop you can even zoom in further, but the hassle for copying such large pictures is not worth it, atleast not for me.)

    Now, please, don't come with that cleartype bs or jpg diffusion, it's non-relevant.
    It's impossible for some link to be the same as a different link in pixels while ALL the other links are not.
    When everything would be the same, then yes, my comment would be false, but it isn't.

    Ever since Equinox posted how easily it is to phtoshop/mspaint (whatever?) it, you all believe that it's fake now. Doesn't prove he photoshopped it.

    As of now I do not know what to believe. I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard did this intentionally. I have no stance on whether it's fake or not at this moment.

    *Feels ignored*

    I already pretty much debunked it, it's obviously fake if you magnify it and compare it to the other Diablo links, it's a complete match with another link on that same page, while all the other links are different.
    It's copy work. The simplest of fakes to discover actually. If he went about manually editing a few pixels it would've been almost impossible to say whether it was fake or not. Which he didn't.

    Quote from "TheAdviser" »
    You can correct me but, why would BLIZZARD use letters with each different pixels? Isn't it logical they look the same? Just like the Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
    look exactly the same.

    I will, when you look at the other Diablo links there, each single one has different colours per pixel when you magnify it to the point where you can see them individiually. So each single time they've written Diablo on that page it was different, except yours matched one perfectly.

    Edit: Sabacca50, you actuallly beaten me to designing a picture including warcraft 4 xD

    Looks good, but it's also VERY easy to be faked it only requires some very basic photoshop knowledge to do so. Also, why didn't you post the 2nd picture aswell, at the same time with your other picture? Why did you only think about posting it, after you edited your post the first time, while saying it's gone?

    I'm highly sceptical on this one.

    EDIT: IT'S FAKE, CLOSE INSPECTION IN PHOTOSHOP REVEALED EXACTLY THE SAME PIXELS AS A DIFFERENT DIABLO LINK ON THE SAME PAGE. HE COPIED A DIFFERENT DIABLO LINK AND EDITED IT IN AS A SECOND LINK.

    In order to have Terror, you will need some form of Destruction. But in order to have Destruction, you will need Hatred. (In human terms atleast)

    1. Mephisto
    2. Baal
    3. Diablo

    posted a message on No Diablo 3 until 2009 AT LEAST
    Look, when WWI went to South-Korea, everyone knew something was up with Starcraft (Yes, also the countdown made it pretty obvious).
    This time, WWI is on the 29th of june. Which so happens to be Diablo's anniversary. They've also been grabbing quite a few website links refering towards Diablo 3 lately. Coincidence or clues?

    I wouldn't mind playing Diablo 3 for the first time somewhere around 2010, atleast I can marvel at it's teasers and artwork in the meantime. Could also use the time for some extra savings for a new pc, which I will most likely need if I want to play Diablo 3 at it's max. :)

    Actually it seems to be in France because the regional headquarter for Europe from Blizzard is located there. Secondly, Blizzcon 2007 was in America, WWI 2007 was in Asia, WWI 2008 in Europe plz? Can the Europeans have some fun aswell? :(

    Thirdly, I think the fans for Diablo are pretty much evenly distributed between America and Europe.

    Either it's hugely overhyped, or they haven't released everything yet. (I would keep Diablo3.com in your eyes the comming few hours)

    posted a message on The World Wide Web will be Shaken...
    Quote from "Medievaldragon" »
    Day 3 banner showed a smaller silhouette of Tyrael.
    Day 2 banner shows him closer.

    Tyrael wasn't moving along with the banner, because .... Tyrael is getting closer on collision course against the banner ... sword in hand.


    Day 1 was gonna be an animation, but someone on IRC channel
    complained his head hurt with the shaking, and indeed with everyone hitting the servers it would eat way too much bandwidth and server stability. So I followed the advice and made it a still image to replace the gif animation.

    For day 0, I was thinking of a small gif animation, but I am really considering it since another file I am attaching is kinda big.

    Day 0 would be Tyrael striking the banner with his sword cutting Diablo 3 in half making it Diablo 1,5! cool!

    Seriously though, he's gonna cut it I guess. Maybe revealing something behind it or so...

    Site will obviously be revamped if there's a Diablo rumor or if it's taken over by Blizzard. So in my book that only counts if it's the only thing that happens (revamping without anything else).

    I never said it wasn't anything big, i was just defending the realistic people who did see this from another point of view. Al trough, I do find it hard to believe that they're going to announce it via the net. To answer your question: I felt like.

    World wide? Last time i checked there were a lot more player in Asia too. I could understand 10 M subscribers in both the USA and EU, but I'd think there's a lot more in Asia.

    Blizzard is smart, they want to make good money and still give the fans what they want. They would never ruin WoW, as it makes more money then all the previous WarCraft games, Diablo games and StarCraft games combined. Diablo III would be a instant WoW-killer - espacilly in the form of a MMO.

    Ok, I understand what you meant to say now about the realistic people, although it's not realistic to think MD and Umaro are going to fuck us all up. Who to my knowledge (been lurking for quite a few years) haven't seriously done that before. It HAS to be big, and what else is big other than some clue to Diablo 3 or MMO Diablo 3.

    As for the subscribers to WoW, here's a little information for you, which you could've searched for yourself within 5 minutes.

    "World of Warcraft currently holds 62% of the MMOG market at 10 million subscribers. The current subscriber base for all MMOGs is 16 million."

    Mind you, this is worldwide.


    Remember that Diablo 3 will be a game from Blizzard, thus they do not destroy their income/fanbase from WoW in any way. Nor will Diablo 3 come out anytime soon, so in essence they can use it as a replacement for WoW, which will otherwise be defeated by other MMO's in a few years.

    Those people are not being "pessimistic", they're being REALISTIC. It's a huge difference.

    Also, World of WarCraft (also known as WoW) is Blizzards newest, and biggest smash hit ever. The game itself got around 10 M subscribers in the EU alone, it's shaken the very core of the online gaming community. It's only logical that Blizzard does not want to kill this franchise to fast, now that they have a monthly fee plus a expansion on the way.

    Ignorant..

    1. Why did you join? Just to say it probably won't be anything big?
    2. WoW has 10 M subscribers in the world not the EU.. though, even that is alot
    3. Diablo 3 won't kill WoW, especially not after the next expansion and the one thereafter. Besides Diablo 3 won't be released anytime soon, only announced.

    True enough, I'll be ok with anything though, as long as they announce something.

    After having thought about this for a while.. (yeah, I was at a boring birthday) I can come to 2 conclusions. It's either Blizzard that's going to take over this website and will put up some teaser or countdown to WWI. Or Diablo3.com will have some exclusive info only they are allowed to reveal first. If they're not allowed to reveal it first, there wouldn't be any huge increase because gamers will still go to their original source they've been going to all along. It has to be something VERY big.

    *fingers crossed for teaser countdown like SC2 had*

    My vote is for something regarding Diablo 3, either some subtle hint from Blizzard or a countdown will start in 13 days on Blizzard's website just like they did with Starcraft 2. Might also just be wishful thinking on my part though :D
