May 1, 2008LOL. You know I think you talked me out of abandoning this site Timber. I'll think I'll visit from time to time. 1. For the entertainment. I don't think I can find more hilarious theories and rumors anywhere else. 2. In case some real diablo news pops up I'm sure I'll find it buried somewhere in the clutter. I admit, this is probably where most diablo fans hang out. I just won't pay any more attention to official communiques. The timer said "half the web". So he meant us to think "half the web". I don't want to hear your spin on it.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Are you stupid? What does diablo3 have to do with anything I said? The owners here are still the owners, just with a different domain pointer. Point is they lied about "half the web" linking here on May 1.
Actually, something good came out of this. Now gamers won't take this site seriously anymore or believe anything said. It's been pretty obvious anyway. I-mockery owns this site which makes fun of people like diablo fans. Go read wiki on it ya doof!
Apr 30, 2008"Whois info on Diablo3.com shows that it's currently owned by Roger Barr, who runs I-Mockery, another link on the sidebar. So this could all just be a hoax or publicity stunt. We'll find out on May 1st, I guess."Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Over the years the site has expanded greatly, but still continues to live up to its original slogan: "Dedicated to making a mockery out of all things adored by the general public. Dedicated to exposing people who take themselves far too seriously. Dedicated to shattering empty causes and empty words.
Apr 30, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Rukahs" »Why would he say this?? This part pretty much sums it up for me; this announcement will be freaking huge.
To top it off, he used this image; which pretty much makes it official that its going to be a Diablo related announcement.
Oh so "half the web" now means just "half the gaming sites". This is getting lamer but I guess it could still be big, just not as big a another diablo for that really would attract half the ENTIRE web. Remember the intervew a few months ago guys where blizzard officially stated there would be no diablo announcement for a long time.

I'm going CRAZY!!!!
Tonight is gonna be awesome.
The countdown ends at 12 midnight EST (11 pm forum time)
Awsome or we're all going to stick guns in our mouths.
Apr 30, 2008I guess it could be a diablo related mmo since the staff only said it wouldn't be "diablo 3". The problem is the language he used in that post was intended to calm us down so we wouldn't be dissappointed. Any new diablo game wouldn't dissappoint me.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Also I think blizz would be having their own countdown. There's virtually no buzz in general blizzard forums about this--only on a couple fan sites. If blizzard was announcing it would be bigger than this. Maybe it has something to do with the diablo movie but then that still wouldn't attract half the web. It's this "half the web" thing that has me confused.
Apr 29, 2008So it's not the diablo 3 announcement but what else would cause half the web to visit diablo3.com? If the announcement fails to attract that much attention I'd say the language was a little misleading. Could this have something to do with that diablo movie legendary is supposed to be doing? And what about the "The world of sanctuary will be shaken" banner at blizzplanet refering to the same countdown? Not sure what that could mean.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Apr 29, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "Astion" »Your guess is as good as mine, but hear this idea.
May 1st is where the owners of www.diablo3.com hand over the domain to blizzard. Making it link to the diablo2 exp site. And evryone seeing this as solid proof that blizzard is going to release diablo3. Thus linking this website all across the web. As it now isnt a fansite anymore.
This domain is bound to get sold to blizzard. And it has to happen between now and 29 june. So, may 1st, it doesnt get any more logic.
Also, they said it wouldnt be an "official" announcement. Its not official alright, but it pretty much says it all.
Aswell explains why diablo3 so suddenly keeps reminding of its IRC channel. Since thats the place where you have to be after this site gets removed!
Site gets removed? This makes no sense. Why would their new home be an IRC channel instead of just another website? What they would do is just announce a new domain name to point to this site if they lost diablo3.com. Blizzard does not own this site even if they take the domain name over.

I almost didn't see it either. It's because we would like it to be true.
Apr 29, 2008Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)Quote from "russianKd"" »Well, then why would someone post a bullshit article like that on a website like that??
We have a thing here called april fools.
I don't know guys if blizzard were going to announce something like D3 wouldn't they have a countdown on their own site instead of just a fan site?
Apr 17, 2008greymann posted a message on Mortal Online (a new Unreal Engine 3 First-person MMORPG)Posted in: Other GamesQuote from "Tag" »Its look very intriguing so I think I might give it a try, but if I got to wait until 2009 than i'll probably going to forget that it even exist.
Heh. 2009 is pretty good considering it was just announced. Look at how long we've known about AoC and WAR. I'm glad to put this new one on my radar since my hopes are waning for both those games the closer they get to release.
Mar 19, 2008It's sure is easy to get confused. At the mmorpg.com blog zergwatch refers to the job posting talking about the diablo 1 and 2 team looking for a level designer with understanding of online competetive play. His first thought is that they might just be trying to revamp the pvp in wow. ???????Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Although I agree that wow needs a lot of help in the pvp area it seems more likely they're talking about a new game. Whatever.
Second, who is this "team behind diablo 1 and 2"? Every tom dick and harry you talk to says that team left and made hellgate [cough, sputter, hack!]. So who is this diablo team that you see listed in blizzard job ads and why would they refer to them as such if they were just talking about jobs related to wow or another non-diablo game? Is it just that the wow team is on the existing wow and the diablo guys, with nothing else to do, are on the new stuff? Help me, I'm sinking.
Mar 5, 2008This game could represent the next thing in immersion for mmo's possibly. But it may only amount to what I call blizzard fodder. The wizards at blizzard will snatch some of the better ideas (if they haven't thought of them already) and put the blizzard character and content into it and make something that's actually playable.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Jan 2, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from name="Shere Khaan" »I am not sure where you are getting this. Blizzard has done only ONE MMO, yet you are saying they can't do another MMO without it being exactly the same?
If you're such a fan of Blizzard North, go play Hellgate.
Hellgate only showed that those guys are nothing without blizzard. Whatever blizzard north was stayed with blizzard.
