If Diablo 3 was released as a game of its own, with different name, then it would have been a decent game 5/10.
But since D3 was released as a sequel to one of the best franchises in gaming history, its a crap game. 3/10. If you read fan reviews on Metacritics or Amazon or even Blizz own forums, WAY more players gave the lowest possible rating than the highest. It says a lot how dissatisfied majority is.
Blizzard made a lot of cash based on D1-2 fame, but at the same time it ruined Diablo franchise, as well as millions of loyal to Blizzard players wont be as loyal anymore, or customers at all. I personally dont plan pre-ordering anything from Blizzard ever again. And even if I dont plan to buy any of their games at all, I leave a small chance if they finally release something really good, i.e. after reading players reviews months after game releases. But considering how average to bad ActiBlizz games are lately, I dont think its likely.

I find upgrades in AH just fine, thank you!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
More seriously, Blizz HAS to limit good item drops to extremely low % because of RMAH. If everyone would be getting great items as often as in D2, RMAH would be flooded and nobody would be buying. Hence very low drop rate, "working as intended".

Guys you are forgetting its Blizzard. RNG is working not in a way you think it is. Chances astronomically low? Try low, since its happening to many, MANY players, me included. If lottery chances would be as great, thousands of people would be winning jack-pots every weekPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion

EU? AH was broken last few days, only now its somewhat working. Couple of my listed items disappeared, I thought "sold, let me put 2 more", today I had 12 items listed instead of 10 limitPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion

The game was a big disappointment to a very smal minority who's complaining on the forums, the majority is playing and not caring about posting.
Nothing is ever rushed by Blizzard.
Amazon D3 customers opinions are pretty good reflection - and WAY more have given lowest grade than max. Average 2.5/5 is about right.
Also your last statement isnt true either, D3 was rushed to the extent they cut many features out just to launch game sooner. If they havent postpone D3 for half a year though, I dont want to even think in what shape game would have been, its dissapointing as it is.

They delivered amazing service compared to any other developer. People just expect miracles, and miracles just don't happen.
"amazing service"? In what World are you living in? I dont want to call anyone fanboy, but lets be real - service (at least in EU) was beyond terrible, only few games were worse, like Aion. Not like NCsoft cares about West anyway, but Blizz?

Blizzard definitely havent given up - a lot of patching going on (even if they sometime makes things worse). Why would they give up? RMAH suppose to delivery solid flow of extra cash.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I'm sure there are many people who claim they could do much better in far less time. I'd wager they would be wrong.
I actually could. I would hire Blizzard North team and they would do a better job, much faster. I honestly dont know what Blizz was doing with D3 for 7 years - game is relatively small, and bugy as hell.
Some joked Blizz worked on game for 2 years, and 5 - on RMAH, but AH is even worse state than game itself, its mind boggling. WoW had a good AH for many years now, while D3 devs seem like they never seen AH in their life before. I use EU AH (G/RM) extensively, and its terrible. Not just availability wise, but feature wise as well.

I thought I did, but I could be wrong. I'll have to check it out tonight. Thanks for the catch.
If you try to "upgrade" driver it wont work, since driver checks if newer version is installed and skips installation. Uninstall first and you're golden

Yeah, with drivers which literally burn video cards dead, that Nvidia?

I reverted back to 12.3, but IMO there will be a hotfix from AMD soon, specifically for D3.Posted in: Technical Support

Anyone who works with the customer support have to deal with the very same things.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
