You, and your team probably ruined D3 for good. That however, is statistical. There is a chance you can fix this title, albeit a small one.
I've stated two issues thus far for myself personally. The first is, what's the point of playing a game that's going to be radically different several months from now? I mean, yeah it's a video game, meaning it would have evolved over-time with additional content/tweaks independent of being broken. However the changes proposed, and already implemented, are game-changing and so huge I almost want to uninstall, reinstall a year from now, and pretend I never used to play this game. Why invest in a burning ship.
The second is my friends, they won't ever touch this title again. You will have the hardcore kids continue to play, but mass appeal is gone, probably forever. I purchased this with intent to play with friends, not link my stupid gear to some random in hopes of shock & awe.
Thanks for the apology, the humility is important. This will change game-design forever at Blizzard, and I suppose in that sense, that is the greatest achievement of D3.
