    Taking out the AH is not something I can get behind. You can go back to spamming in /trade but I'm not joining you.

    posted a message on Rob Pardo Regarding Jay Wilson, Dyes for Legendary Items, Hellfire Rings to be Salvageable in 1.0.7, Blizzard Comic Contest Entr
    Quote from overneathe

    Rob Pardo is executive producer of Diablo 3. Ex-boss of Jay Wilson and Chief Creative Officer at Blizzard.

    He has worked as designer on:
    Diablo II
    StarCraft
    WarCraft II

    Lead designer to:
    StarCraft: Brood War
    WarCraft III
    WarCraft III: Frozen Throne
    All World of Warcraft expansions including vanilla.

    So in simplier terms, Wilson has full authority over D3. Rob has full authority over Wilson in a supervisory role.

    We can thus safely blame Wilson for all the D3 launch problems. Rob's part is more on how well he supervised Wilson.

    Seriously now. What is the difference between Jay's and Rob's roles? The buck obviously stops somewhere and I am most interested in finding a blame to place blame on.

    posted a message on jay wilson quit diablo 3
    He was in charge of d3 as a whole? Then I can safely say based on launch he should be fired.

    I do however qualify that the improvements to d3 since launch are commendable. Might be worth letting him off with a paycut and demotion.

    When prices are high, its a good time to sell. What you find will sell for more.

    When prices are low, its a good time to buy. What you find will sell for less.

    When your clear rate is fast, you'll find more loot. This is profitable no matter if prices are high or low.

    TL;DR. Try to increase clear rate. If prices are low buy to boost your gear, If prices are high, sell to fund your spending.

    posted a message on Does Blizzard protect scammers?
    Lets review.

    1. There is a rule saying that reporting players should be done through official channels and not to call them out by name. The OP broke this rule and was punished.

    2. There is a case of alleged scamming. It involved using item swapping of a similarly named item. This is covered by the scam policy.

    "A scam is the act of acquiring items or any other possession from another player through misinformation, confusion, or fraud. In short, using any sort of deception to gain at another's expense. If you are unsure if your particular case fits the criteria of a scam, contact a GM in-game and they will be able to assist you."

    Given the above, the OP is best served by contacting the in game support tools to attempt an item recovery. While his actions might be altruistically motivated, calling out players by name is a violation. I wish him well in his attempt to recovery from the scam and hope that he retains his desire to help others through this difficult time.

    There is a place for calling out alleged scammers and it is not the d3 official forums.

    On top of that, you have the even trickier problem of distinguishing between what people say they want and what they actually want.

    There are many times, what people say they want is not actually what they need.

    posted a message on Diablo 3, SSD and difference in performance on SATA2 and SATA3
    Been on a SSD from the start but the framerate performance issues I have are likely due to older graphic and processor bottlenecks. I'm not too confident SSD to non SSD would have any framerate differences.

    I hop on my wizarrd and shoot things. When I feel satisfied, I log off. That works for me.

    I think that assumption which all players are retards and casuals are going to hurt a lot of gaming companies.

    You are only as successful as your customers are willing to let you be. WOW found a great increase in playerbase and profitability moving towards LFR, LFD and other casual friendly options. Every player in WOW can realistically get their own personal legend in pandaland just following the LFR and Wrathion questline. Some don't like it and choose to walk away from the game of course but as a whole there are a lot more happy players than unhappy ones. You give the customer what they want as long as it doesn't hurt your profitability.

    You can't please everyone but ignoring the majority (which is made up of the unskilled and casuals) is not a good profit maximisation strategy.

    Satisfied with the changes. Blizzard continues to impress me with their constant improving of d3. The launch was terrible and full of incompetence but the recovery operation since has exceeded my expectations. I doubt any other game would have redesigned their endgame paradigm after launch like d3 did for inferno.

    posted a message on new exploit for scamming in d3
    OP. This comes under scamming. Contact Blizzard and leave it to them.

    OT. Laughing at someone's misfortune is not good people. It could happen to you or your loved ones one day.
