There should be at LEAST one blue post on every single page of this thread, if not more. I've read about a third of this entire thing...I'm done...not reading anymore. If the age old saying is true, and actions speak louder than words, then I think it's time for Blizzard to do some SERIOUS FRIGGIN' ACTING.
I don't mean "acting" as in "acting like they're concerned so they send their CMs out to us to give us the third degree every few days or so." I don't mean "acting" as in "Rob Schneider DERP DEE DERR". I mean "acting" as in "getting more than a few select people to go through not only this but other threads where US PLAYERS get actively involved in the game and offer up our opinions and solutions on how to make it better." Yes, I mean that acting.
You can face it or not, Jay/ActiBlizz/whoever this ACTUALLY concerns...but like one very insightful poster said earlier, you guys are clearly and blatantly side-stepping a great deal of the REAL issues Diablo 3 has...and will continue to have as long as the corporate beligerence, ignorance and laziness is allowed to continue.
The first thing I'm seeing wrong with the headlining Blue post is the Monster Affixes. While I can defeat pretty much all of them in Act I and II on my Witch Doc (who SEVERELY outgears BOTH Acts no less, and yet somehow I'm still terrified of Act III), a large percentage of them are...stay with me here...CHEAP/CHEESY/UNREASONABLY OVERTUNED. Oh, and aren't I thankful that they drop the most GOD AWFUL gear (even if it's lvl 62 or 63)?? Your explanation of how they are allocated is absolutely abhorrable. It's an outright lie. Are you a CM or a politician? I don't think I have to go through and reiterate how utterly correct everyone has been who says they've seen elites with 2 or more of those "limited to 1" affixes you listed.
I did "LOL" a bit when I read a post where someone said "This should have been implemented since Day 1." That was great and made my night. Why? Cuz it's TRUE. ALL of those things he cited are things that should already be in the game. God forbid, we put up with the IAS nerf (and god knows how many more ridiculous ones to come later, just cuz you guys snowjobbed us on the acutal reasons WHY and decided it was "necessary"), and yet you all still willingly overlook MINOR CONVENIENCES that every player would appreciate forever.
Speaking of the IAS nerf...we all know it was cuz players were doing too much damage and killing your precious elite cheeseheads too quickly. I'm not even going to get into how I currently go about killing them in Act I and II...simply cuz if I do, I KNOW I'm setting myself up for a knife in the lower spine later on with yet another pointless nerf to a FUN MECHANIC that YOU, BLIZZARD, put into your game. I think what I'm saying, is that "You made your bed, so sleep in it." That IAS was killing build diversity argument is complete manure. Ever hear the saying "The customer is always right"? Well...
Or maybe "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"? Well right now, Diablo 3 is pretty downright ugly. I, myself, have already vowed to outright quit for good if certain things happen or don't happen by or slightly after 1.04 hits. I keep seeing fanbois cite the "Inferno is supposed to be hard - learn to play - you're just bad - learn your class - blahblahblah." You guys must really be beaming at the sight of those posts. Very constructive indeed. Inferno mode is very unclear right now...incomplete even...and so are Blizzard's intentions for it.
What do I mean? I mean, if the point is for average to slightly above average gamers like myself to have our intelligence insulted with lies and maybes left and right, then I hope all Blizzard employees realize (or at least the ones responsible for putting out D3 and updating content within) that they could be experiencing severely decreased revenue...and soon...resulting in lack of interest in the company, inherent money loss, and loss of employment. Do I have all the answers? No. Do I have SOME? Hell yes! Have I touched on even a fraction of the problematic issues with D3 right now? No...but others in this thread have! Does this post, and many others, deserve to be read, understood, and responded to? OH MY GOD FRIGGIN' RIGHT THEY DO. Time to communicate with the community, Blizzard...is that really too much to ask?
