One blanket statement, with no real info or news, does not give me a lot of confidence about where this game is going. Most of what I saw was Mike talking about how great this game sold and all the money they are making. He did mention a new "system" of some sort for lvl 60's, but really addressed none of the more important issues.
If I'm going to keep playing this game, down the road once it's fixed, the first thing that I REQUIRE is improved loot system. I'm OK with having to put in some time and work, but I should get get low rolls on stats for level 63 items. The level range for 61-63 items is too much and the affix levels for stats is just way too broad. If I get an item with Str, the minimum should be like 70 or 80, not 20 or 30. If they improve loot so the tolerances for stats are much tighter, I may be interested in playing more. But right now, why bother? I'm as likely to win the lottery as I am to get a good level. Gear is supposed to be exciting and rewarding. I've seen no reward at all, personally.
Another key thing is the end game, obviously. A person can only grind act 1 so much before the become sick to death of it. Yet if I want to try "progression runs", I'm penalized so steeply and the risk vs. reward makes it not worthwhile to do anything but act 1 with lots of MF gear.
Buffing the legendaries will be a nice change and any sort of additional end game content is welcome. But ultimately, this game is just not FUN. The combat itself is pretty cool. I dig the graphics and animations. But the game lacks excitement and difersity.
I think Blizzard knows what we want. The question is will they give it to us. This game was really released before it was ready and the RMAH is centric to the entire design. I just don't get the whole loot thing though. If items weren't so rare and I could maybe buy some gear on the RMAH for fairly cheap for an alt or something, it might be worth considering. But what is 1 item for $50-$100 gonna do in the long run for me?
Blizzard has truly suffered some serious customer dissatisfaction with this game and will need to really listen to the community if they seek to repair the damage done. I hope they can do it right, I really do. I've had such respect for so long from them, but it's like they sold out for money and the RMAH. Don't let Bobby's hate for games and greed control you guys. Loyal games remember everything and will reward or punish the devs with sales, or lack thereof in due time..
And seriously guys, if you want to make money off microstrasactions, why not just put lots of cosmetic stuff in the game, like the angel wings. Pople might spend money on that stuff.
