Now the other side, still trying to defend blizzard after all these years. Its clearly not the same company and seriously this game is just pure trash by today standard. Now you can defend them at release and i did, i saw a great future, they promised PVP shortly before release, then shortly before christmas for sure and now here we are with NOTHING. Im sorry but this NOTHING doesent float, theres no way to defend such practice. A PART OF THE GAME WAS MISSING AND PROMISED TO COME OUT SHORTLY AFTER THE RELASE, I PAID FOR THAT FEATURE AND I STILL DO NOT HAVE IT AVAILABLE. THERE IS NO REASON TO DEFEND THESE KIND OF MARKETING PRACTICE IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER.
This is a path blizzard has taken more and more, release shit and then fix later, way later when people have been in arms for half a year. Just look at world of warcraft (thank god i havent been addicated to that game for years), they make full player beta every expansion, have millions of feedback on things like class balance, things that are sometime 100% obivious, nothing is done. Then 3 months after the release they act on the very thing players warn them about, and appologise saying the players were right so fucking often its pretty much sad now. How many time such a situation happens to them? Like 200 time per expansion. This cycle never end. They dont care about the players, they care about the cash. Once the buying slows down, they finally do something.
Blizzard is a shadow of itself and the next 5 years will make it more apparent then ever. Every single new release from this company is going into a downward spiral, next wow expansion will be a huge critical bust, even more then diablo 3, same thing goes for Titan. Its only gona be critical failure from there, until consumer realise the critics are right and leave this joint.
I seen the future and it doesent look well and no its not because of bobby kotic or activision or the merge. Its because of time and the shadow of blizzard. The lack of originality, look even Torchlight 2 didnt do too well, those are blizzard north original crew, its not lack of talent. That talent is still set like its the 90s and the rest of the world moved on from this kind of cheap crap. Same reason old farts like Peter Molyneux at some point made some amazing games in the 90s, then everything he touched is mediocre, he is just out of the loop. Blizzard is at the end of their loop.
