Alas my poor companion.

Make sure you include squirrels when you do add it back in.

Me and Squirrley have made it to hell and back before, we can do it again.

Wouldn't have really mattered to me if you left them or removed them as they were optional to use.

BUT YES, keep on track for the release date ty :)

OMFG they actually gave me a beta key!!! TYTYTY


*Fist Bunp*

On topic, the models for the pets should totally be used for "wildlife" mobs that just show up and wander around in each map. Non-aggressive, dies in one hit, no loot. If you hit one directly it dies in an explosion of gore, otherwise just a normal death animation. (Make sure the piggies squeal, though!) For small insects, if you walk on them they go splat.

The models are already there, so I would assume that this wouldn't take very long and is funny enough that hopefully someone will take the time to do it on their time off, for the lulz.

Regardless, happy to see them go if it means we'll see D3 Soonerish™

When weighing these systems against releasing the game, we decided to cut these scrolls and stay on track for the game’s release.



+1


This is very good idea, and not only with mentionet systems, i think that kind of action will be good for all ow us:
Not delaying the release.
And especially that you will be able to think about all of the cutoff systems after the release, and this will be better thinking of it because that is no preasure-thinking :] so it will only give us a lot better solutions.

Neither of those are issues we felt like we could solve without a lot of additional work, and we’re trying to close in on a solid release date for the game, not move further away.

Are you gonna comment of a few other changes that didn't make in to the patch notes?

The fact we have 3 less bank tabs to buy, for example.
