Before we head off to join friends and loved ones in time-honored traditions of the season (e.g. catching up on the latest video games and eating our weight's worth in freshly-baked cookies), we wanted to wish all of you a very merry holiday!
'Tis the Season
As a small gift from our team, we've created a few festive Facebook cover photos and Twitter banners so you can deck the halls of your social media pages with some epic yuletide flare:
And speaking of presents, don't forget to be on the lookout for some heroic holiday giveaways, courtesy of Diablo III fansites!)
See You Next Year!
Just as a heads-up, the community team will have a reduced presence on the forums, Twitter, and Facebook over the holidays as we get ready to unwrap our very own Treasure Goblins and ring in a new year with family and friends. We're eager to hit the ground running in January, though, and look forward to discussing the delicate art of demon slaughter with you in 2013.
In the meantime, whether in Sanctuary, Azeroth, Mar Sara, or beyond, we hope that you and yours share in the warmth of the season. It's truly been a pleasure for us to represent Blizzard and the Diablo III community this past year, and we want to thank each and every one of you for your support, your reports, and (most importantly) your passion.
Have a fantastic holiday, everyone...and may all your loot be legendary!
Your friendly neighborhood North American Diablo III Community Team, featuring...

Blizzard News Roundup
Watch the video below for the latest in Blizzard news presented by Evan!
Happy Holidays too.. I hope it will be a good 2013 year for all Diablo fans who still have small hopes for this game.... I wonder if they will release PVP on May 2013.. a year after the game was officially released.
The community team gets a lot of crap from a lot of people, but I'm glad they are there to do the job that they do.
Merry Christmas to them and to everyone.
the community team gets a lot of crap because D3 forums has a couple of thousand 7yr old whiners... Thats why i check out bnet d3 forums for fun and diablofans for constructive/intellectual discussions.
