"No news, dead game!"
"News that I don't like, dead game!"
Seriously, I've been playing an alleged dead mode (non-season) in an alleged dead game (D3). Whatever I want to do, I find groups almost *instantly* for it. If that's a dead game... sure, I'll take it.
This entire thread is just pointless. I mean, we exercise free speech, so you can all say what you want and shout at me and come forth with your arguments why a game which still is played by thousands of people is dead. Why a game that still gets so many people to argue about in a niche forum like Diablofans is dead. At the end of the day, what I see are people who don't like this game, the direction is heading, or just mistake Diablo for a game it's not (MMORPG, MoBa, or some e-sports crap). I didn't play for a few seasons because I just didn't feel like it, but I didn't proclaim it a "dead game". And it certainly isn't dead now. It's just not what some of you want it to be. If you want a PvP game, or a trading/P2W game, D3 is not for you. D3 is a casual-oriented hack'n'slay grinding game. It has its flaws, but let's keep things in perspective.
/rant over... just my $0.02, I'll go back to lurking in this thread. Continue discussion. I'll get some popcorn. No wait, actually, I'll not get popcorn - I'll rather go and play a dead game.
