Don't you know Blizzard? They don't want to make a great game. They want money, our money. And for that they don't need anything else than mega hype. And they have a master class in hype making, we know it.
Go back in mind for all their promises before D3. And what they did? Crap Action House, filled by bots and crap boring game about holding ppm and yawn hours by hours.
What do they do now? Same thing. A lot of promises and more of them in the future. Wind up hype about D4, then take grant for pre-orders etc.
This company does not deserve any trust in them anymore, after what they did with D3.
Auction House was announced long before the launch of Diablo 3. You can't really say they gave you something unexpected when it comes to that... D3 vanilla in my opinion was a much more solid game than RoS ever was. The only problem it had was the RMAH.
It's in their best interest to make a great game now. People are not sheep. A lot of people feel betrayed from D3 (and rightfully so). Seeing so many new people on the D4 team (and none of people that worked on D3) gives me great hope. What they've shown so far looks like they know what the franchise should be. Dark and gothic.. They are bringing a lot of stuff people enjoyed from previous games like the runes, trading, pvp...D3 had none of that even after years of promises. I am very hopeful for D4.
On top of that they are going to make it so that in the end you can get all the spells. I think this will be a huge mistake as it completely nulifies the point of talent/skill trees.
They are gathering feedback and they already said nothing is set in stone... The game is not out in a week for you to be panicking over this. Jesus. They've already shown they are listening to feedback so give your feedback in a normal manner and it just might get heard.
Is anyone REALLY impressed by the gameplay trailer? I mean cmon, It literally looks exactly like diablo 3, just with darker themes.... as it should’ve had in the first place. No real improvement on graphics or mechanics whatsoever. Oh the barb auto-climbed a wall you say?! Oooo. They’re just copy-pasting D3 and giving us what we wanted over 10 years ago. Non cartoony diablo game with PVP. And it’s still supposedly over 2 years until it’s released? Kind of a joke tbh.
(Inb4 the “stop complaining and just be happy” comments)
It looks like a big improvement so far. Graphics wise the most, of course, but not only that. They are moving away from the retardness GR spam for big dick measurement with time limit. They seem to be moving away from the Paragon infinite farm as well. We have world bosses which are sort of a new end game. The first ARPG with full open world (excluding the dungeons of course). There's PVP, Trading and Runes. None of these stuff are in D3 so how is it like D3?
Why even use that avatar if you hate D4 so much? Kind of hypocritical.
