What worried me the most was that it almost looked like the devs that represented Diablo on stage looked like they almost didn't care that much it looked like they didn't rehearse anything and all we got were some new empty promises.
Also I thought about people saying we payed only once for the game + maybe reaper of souls. What the hell?? Isn't that enough for atleast a few years of big support for the game? Are we in a time and age that everything has to be 12 euro's per month to get anything extra for your game you bought? I think we are taking a turn for the worse if we start to think this way. I payed 80 euros in total for this game, so yeah I have some expectations is that so weird?
Are you seriously asking whether people are entitled to more content after a game's release? The majority of game developers don't even consider this for their games. So yes, it is weird. 80 euros for what we've received so far of Diablo 3 is a fucking steal.
I think people need to stop being so entitled. Blizzard supporting and developing content for a game that they basically no longer make money on until they release another expansion shouldn't be criticized until most other triple-A games are doing the exact same thing. Until then, complaints are unwarranted.
How so? People were complaining about a lack of new information on D3 at Blizzcon. I countered saying they've already done a considerable amount of work on it this year despite it being their only franchise that currently makes no money after initial sales of the game. Implying that peoples' expectations of content may be skewed due to comparing D3's development to other Blizzard games, such as WoW, which is an inferior comparison.
I admit I'm not the best at translating my opinion verbally, but I don't understand how you could be confused about what I said.
Touche'. I honestly wouldn't mind paying 5 bucks a month for more content/patches. I just had some high expectation/Was really excited cause I do like D3 as a game! I just wish there was a little more "exciting" stuff. I mean a new map/new legs are cool. I just wanted something a bit more exciting. I'm sorry the "ancient" legendarys just seems so boring. 30% to stats is nice...but boring. Why not offer some cool affix? or addon to the pre-existing affix? I think they slipped up. Its one of those really boring-not too game breaking changes that I do not like.
Could've even added an additional random stat like CDR/+primary
Well, they might not be generating revenues right now, but I'm pretty sure they filled their pockets for a while with the auction house, and people have been feeling unsatisfied by d3 for a while now, and everything they do only brings more issued in the game. I spent 2000 hours on this game only to learn they will once more make my shit obsolete...
That's kind of the point of the game though. So why are you surprised that to extend longevity of the game they introduce new gear?
They may very well have made plenty of money off the RMAH to sustain development of the game for years ahead, however they could very likely also have only made enough to sustain server maintenance and transaction fees. Unfortunately we don't know the financial details of the RMAH. The point is more that the majority of other major game companies don't do any sort of development for games after release where they aren't making additional revenue by some other means from the game. Hell, most don't even offer standard support, only releasing minimal patches to fix bugs. So I guess the question is, why is Blizzard being held to a ridiculous standard than everyone else when their standards are already higher than most everyone else?
nope, only 281 paragon and I have played once in the passed 6 months for about 30 minutes simply because the last couple weeks of WoW have been broken from pre-expansion patch leaving me a lil bored.
I see. Well then it's entirely possible that D3 just isn't the game for you. I don't like Call of Duty, it doesn't appeal to me at all. However, what you won't see me doing is hanging out at a CoD fan forum telling them how much their game sucks. You see how little and silly such behavior is, don't you?

Difference is I loved Diablo 1 and 2 and played them for years...so I'm not allowed to be critical of the abortion that is Diablo 3? If you don't like Call of Duty, you don't like Call of Duty and don't become invested in the franchise. I never liked Call of Duty either so I'm not over there.
