You can have 1000 people that want 1000 different things for so-called "end-game" (and that are not satisfied with the current end-game), and what this patch does for 'end-game' doesn't please 999 people out of those 1000. The one guy who's happy is the one that only wanted needed duelling, and nothing else.
At the same time, take 1000 people that are displeased with the itemisation in D3, for 1000 different reasons. Once again, probably none of those 1000 will be happy with what this patch does for itemisation, because it does nothing. Seriously, one more gem rank? Tens of millions of gold for 10% extra crit dmg or some main stat? Please.
Making up statistics is awesome isn't it? I guess I can do it too: 95% of the haters won't agree with what I say, no matter what I say, because they will always hate on the game/developers until they do exactly what they want. And then they won't play 20 minutes of what they wanted/asked for. Aka Torchlight 2 (which has all that people want for D3, yet nobody plays - yay!).
I don't know for you, but end-game for me just improved tenfold. Having new recipes with the potential to create powerful items without having to "play the AH" is a huge factor to get me into playing again. I'll probably spend my 80 mil gold just on crafting these new items. It's not "just 10% crit chance", it's how you get that, paired with the fact that the items are account-bound.
And itemization? You still don't understand either, do you? They're not changing how resists, mainstats and how RNG in general works. It just won't happen. And nothing they do will ever make something like +pickup radius or +health globe bonus as valuable as Crit Chance or +Mainstat.
And let's not even mention the aberration that is bnet 3.0 as it applies to D3.
Said if before, will say it again. Generic complaints about the game won't help the developers give you what you want. They just let everyone know you're still here on the forums hating on the game 8 months after its launch.
