Isnt the "We're focusing our development time elsewhere" just a reference to them spending time with their families over the holiday?
Previously it was stated that the pvp blog was delayed (by two weeks?) Does this mean that we cant expect an update until start - mid of January?
On the topic of PVP, I fear that the initial users of the feature will swarm the forums, calling for nerfs to all the classes and skill combinations they lost to. The gear difference might be large as well at the start, when the system is trying to find suitable matchmaking ratings for everyone, really glad im not a forum moderator during those times.
Pleased to see there's no holiday event, all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth PvP blog. And to those fearing a PvP expansion pack, I can't be bothered to track down the source but I assure you Blizzard quelled this rumour stating it would be free as a content patch, to revoke this decision would likely cost the trust of the entire community, thus I anticipate their stance will not change.
And am I the only one who misses invulnerable minions? Played a seismic slam barb from launch though, might be contributory to my love for them, free loot
It's good that there is no holiday patch (as this is not an MMO) but they really need to roll out PVP already, they should have sold D3 for only $30 before as they built only a half-baked game! most disappointing game ever!
Really glad to hear the Invulnerable won't be making a return. Trying to progress on Inferno and running into a pack with that was a death sentence. If it was in a critical path, you could just as well quit and remake the game.
How do you think they change reflect dmg affix? Will they increase the dmg reflected or decrese? As HC player, I rly hope they will increase it by at least another 50% of current value, just to give sc players headache and force them to play more defenisively.

Rencol - Diablo fan since 1996 and walking encyclopedia of Diablo lore.
Are they indeed focusing on releasing the pvp blog or an expansion (which i doubt , at least not that soon) or are they being dragged to work on alternate projects? I believe there is still a "Titan" project which goes under the radar for some time now. Still no reason for a holiday patch, this isn't an mmo and thank god we are not being cheated (yet) with payable DLC content.
Phaha ,you are so naive , no really ,developers of D3 don't care about you at all!!!! no profit - no content! you should realize that ,all WORLD live on these rules.Nobody is playing this game anymore ,except little "group" of "fanatics" who like Diablo series.Even developers said to you "they are focusing developers time for elsewhere ..." for example eating humburgers or doing something else ....no really can't be so silly ,guys....
Hmm.. Wonder what that development time is going into? expansion or PvP. God I really hope it's PvP I've been looking for a reason to come back to this game other than Paragon Levels and the endless loot horde.
I assume it is both. PvP better be released first though, diablo players are definitely getting restless.
I was probably one of the few who enjoyed invulnerable minions. I would like to see them return even if they have to make other changes to the affix. Maybe weakening the champion or the minions themselves?
glad there is no holiday patch, It means after everything quiets down we can still play on Xmas morning and not have to wait for a patch.
As well it gives the Blizzard folks time off to be with their families.
