Reading this thread I think the only safe conclusion that we can draw is that the internet is full of armchair quarterbacks and Monday morning coaches who claim to know how to do everything better but only after they've seen mistakes.
The best thing I did to improve my enjoyment of D3 was to stop coming to these forums because it's full of whiney people who will absolutely never be happy with anything under any circumstances but take great pleasure in trying to make everyone else miserable too. Sure there are some people who can see the forest for the trees and I applaud them, but the majority of the posters here are self-righteous, indignant, twats who wouldn't be happy if Jay Wilson personally delivered them a gold-plated Lamborghini. Nope, they'd go to the forums and whine that they wanted a Porsche 911, or that the gold-plating process took too long.
Misery loves company and so does hand-wringing.
You illustrate the point perfectly. You can't stop defending blizzard even though they are screwing everyone.
_Blizzard: "So guys after many years, and after the christmas sales ended, we've come to the conclusion there is not enough depth to the pvp tdm model so...here you can have duels very soon"
_Blizzdrone: "you are the best blizzard"
_blizzard: "no just kidding, just that we have this problem with it. We don't want to release it for free when we could do money with it. It's a real problem for us"
_blizzdrone: "don't worry you already delivered so much free stuff"
_blizzard: "that's what we know we would hear. Thanks to you the community is so very strong *wink*wink*.
So, there is still the possibility we absolutely don't know wtf we are doing but we are shelving it while exploring monetisation model. It most likely come with an underwhelming expansion pack. Are you ready for it? In the mean time you'll help us balance it (read: beta test)"
_blizzdrone: "you are so honest that is why we love you guys. We are ready for it as long as there is not too much stats added on the items etc. Hope you get it"
_blizzard: "Totally. Also get ready for us to plug more and more **** like that."
_drone: "sure, we love it!!!" *procede to wallow in it*
_blizz: *procede to wallow in money*
ps:don't get offended, it is just for the laughs and getting the best we can out of this situation.
