He brings up some good points. I played vanilla for nearly two years patiently waiting for PVP, which simply NEVER came.
There's no guarantee we will ever see tiered rifts or ladders. They've pulled this stunt before where they talk about adding content, show a few videos about how it would be and then never release the content.
I have always played diablo and would've bought the games and the expansions no matter how terrible they were or what was promised. I'm a total diablo nut, reading the books, playing all the chars, still playing diablo 2, etc.
But the reason I continue playing is because I want to keep my competitive edge, I need to keep my gear high and ready for whatever challenge is about to be released. I know, I'm spoiled from WoW with content being added regularly, this is a one-time payment game, which makes it even stranger that they didn't implement any PVP (of any kind), it could be competitive rifting tiered or nontiered, but whatever it is, it needs bragging rights. It needs the ability to be shown off. It's really simple; we cannot be challenged by monsters, zombies and demons forever, BUT other players can challenge us forever. They can do exactly what we can do and they can change their behaviour. The monster doesn't care that we kill it. The player does. I'm not saying we necesarily need Team Deathmatch, but what we do need is some kind of competition between players, other than just having the highest sheet damage or highest paragon level.

Endless grind for items you might never get.
It's not about getting or not getting the items. It's about when you have the item, then what? Find the item again and get another 5 core stats or whatever? Sure, that's awesome. But it's not. You farm Rifts to get the gear so you can farm more Rifts so you can get more gear to farm more Rifts. See how nothing changed? You put ~400 hours into the game and literally nothing changes. No discernable progress. Nada.
