It's a really good read, it summed up issues and potential fixes that alot of people have. Alot of the stuff in there is a big overhaul of the game. Considering the final product of D3 took so many years to complete, doing half of this will take a couple of years :)
I think that the people Blizzard should blame is the "internal strike team" theese are the ones that should have sat down with the developers and say: hey look, i think the game needs more to do when u reach lvl 60 and have beaten inferno.
For the developers themselves its alot harder to actually find flaws like this because they loose perspective and tend to look more at the "raw bone of the game" rather than features like much of this stuff.
had d3 opening day. already sick and tired and bored of it and i actually had fun when it came out. week 1..couldnt get enough. week 2 had 2 lvl 60s. weeks 3 trying to clear inferno. week 4-6...AH..AH..butcher...AH...AH...crap ive filled my slots...wait a day and a half. week 7 i havent logged on. this is garbage! i didnt hold out much hope for bliz after the crap house that was starcraft2. listen, if you wanna put all these freaking protections on the game so nobody "pirates it" then why dont freaking think about whether youre making a game that someone actually would want to pirate. get your head out of your a$$ bliz and do your freaking job!
I agree with all of your suggestions. It is how the game should of been on release, but instead it will be 2 years down the track before the game gets good from numerous patches and or an expansion pack to fix it, but unfortunately, it's to-little-to-late and the damage is done.
In that time the majority of people will be off playing Guild Wars 2 or other better games, while Blizzard are trying to repair D3 along with their bad reputation they made for themselves.
Also the stealth nerf to the quality of drops in patch 1.03 i.e acts 3/4 inferno "which was not added in the patch notes, and was made to look like a buff with the revised drop rate table" was deliberately misleading to the community, and was the last straw for me from Blizzard, and I will cancel my WoW sub, and wont buy anymore of their products again.

I'm CrazyJeff, and I want Diablo III to succeed.
Oh WOW! Im not the only one who does this! HAHAHAHA, oh man, im gonna play Max Payne 3 or find some other game until the game i once enjoyed gets fixed.
HOLY !@#$ YES PLEASE!
Sorry for my burst of joy but that 'bob the barbarian bit' was perfect. I love the idea of having a guaranteed drop after hours of farming a specific place or boss with stacks of NV. It finally gives a purpose to it all, yes it may take a REALLY long time but the idea of getting an item that will actually be good is amazing.
I'm writing it currently :D
Excellent, I'm most interested in your thoughts on the Auction House economy. I don't know what direction you will take with it, but personally, I am shocked that they didn't learn their lesson from D2 by shoe horning everyone into a gold based economy again.
If there was any lesson they should have learned, it's that people will barter and develop their own forms of currency to better serve their needs than an overly abundant commodity that literaly springs from the ground and everything else you touch.
People used Stones of Jordan and high level Runes as currency for a reason. They maintained a much more stable "value" over time. In game gold has no future.
