Quote from Bagstone
1) Blizzard is not technically owned by Activision, but a subsidiary (visible by the fact that it's part of "Activision Blizzard"). Moreover, Blizzard's CEO has stated multiple times that Blizzard remains its own entity in deciding when to publish games - this was one of the major parts of the deal. Therefore, your money argument is nil. If Blizzard wanted to make money, they would have released 2.1 as DLC and stopped pushing as many patches as they've done since the RoS release.
2) Endgame content is not polished, I agree with you, but it's also not like it's something that needs to be addressed tomorrow. I think endgame balancing has only one issue - Conduit Pylons - besides that it's pretty freaking awesome, and most guys in the top 100 of any leaderboard I've talked to or I've heard talking about it said the same. PvP is difficult to implement at this point, they've said it themselves; it would require major changes and might break the game's balance completely, once again. We'll see if they're working on PvP soon.
However, class balance and PvP is something they can't use as unique selling point for the next expansion pack. Those are features that are meant to be in the original game. The expansion pack rather needs completely new things (a new act, new ways to make campaign interesting again, new class, a new spin on how we play and perceive the game). Balancing changes and features we were promised 3 years ago will not drive up sales.
3) I won't bet on something as stupid as this, but it's almost guaranteed that it won't come out in early 2015. There's a small chance they'll release the 2nd x-pac for the x-mas sale of 2015, but I'd rather put your shaved head bet on 2016. There's absolutely no reason for Blizzard to release the second expansion just one year after the first.
Oh, and Diablo 4 is unlikely before 2018 or 2020, if ever. ;-)
You do actually argue with him? Why dont you just close after his first point?
