From 2013 :(. Think of all the great gaming minds we've lost over the years and great ideas like this one never seeing the light of day.
Imo, pvp in Diablo doesn't even need to exist in a strictly combat vs combat toe to toe. Setting up the same exact grift tile floors for 4v4 and then let the 2 teams race to the finish. Whoever wins, receives phat loot.
Blizzard is clearly totally behind pvp in Hearthstone, Starcraft, WoW arena, and HOTS -- I ordered a BlizzCon virtual ticket last year and watching the final matches was a blast. I just ordered one for this year and am excited to see all the various teams duke it out. I just never understood why more effort was not put into D3 pvp. How cool would it be to see Quinn and his famous Monks take on BigDaddy and his Witch Doctors?
