PVP will be an expansion pack

Golly gee! You never charged for hotfixes or nerfs? I can't grovel and thank you enough!
If PVP is released as an expansion then I'll have a good reason not to buy it. I play Diablo 3 to kill monsters, not other players.

It's easy to see why some find it hard to believe, though the source quoted here also mentions PvP.

It shouldn’t be all that hard to believe, because we’ve never charged extra for our ongoing hotfixes, patches, or features in any of our Diablo titles (Diablo III included), and PvP is no exception. In recent months, we’ve added new and improved Legendaries, the Paragon system, and, coming in patch 1.0.5, the Monster Power system and the Infernal Machine event. We want to make Diablo the best possible game it can be, and we’re committed to making PvP be worthwhile and compelling as well.

Thank you for your input.
i think PVP will be launched the patch before the expansion. how about that? so no one is right or wrong :D
So if I get matched, like. Wait. What?? Does anyone know what that matchmaking system will do? Like.

Am I judged by like total intelligence gained? Or?

which will come first, pvp patch or heart of the swarm?

The end of the world!!!!

Well it's already 2012 and at the rate they're going with patches....

If it is an expansion that costs money, Blizzard will have so much hate cramed down their throats they will have to do someth... wait...DRM? oh constant online play? wait what? oh ok

I don't understand why none of you had all caps explanations of what possible criterion the matchmaking system might use.
I thought that games are played for fun. Looks like people spend more time complaining about things than playing the game. PvP would be great, and yes they should have released it with the game but if it was not working right then it would just fuel more complaining.

I come on here to look for news about anything that might be going to happen with the game and this is far from it. Maybe if someone was to just simply ask if PvP is going to come out and why it did not, we would get an answer.

Dear Blizzard,

I took a break from Diablo 1+2 after having my kids. Now I have started with Diablo 3 and think that there might be a good reason to think that PvP should have come out with it.

I would love to know if it will be coming soon and if there is a reason that it was not released with the game?

I would like to thank you for all the fun I have had playing the other versions of Diablo and look forward to playing Diablo 3 in the future.


P.S. WOW sucks hairy, sweaty ballz

As we’ve stated previously, the PvP content we are currently working on will be included in a future patch at no additional cost, just like the content we provide in our ongoing patches (1.0.4, 1.0.5, etc.).

dont count on this happenning, no charge hahahahhahhahahhahahahahahhahahaha
Just because 1.04 to 1.05 took a while to develop, does not mean we need to wait for 6, 7, 8, and 9 before 1.1 can be released... 1.1 can pop out any time they choose.

PvP may be an expansion but it will be free, it was marketed as part of the title at launch if they charge for it, there will be lawsuits.

People always spout off about law suits. Does anyone even know what it takes to successfully sue Blizzard and win because all I ever see is talk. You bought the game knowing it had no PVP. I doubt you could sue them. Where is the legally binding document that describes the pvp that you are entitled to for your original purchase.

More importantly which one of you 12 year olds is actually going to follow through.

Well , people just dont realize , developpers are humans too.

They make errors , marketing makes its job too , and players just cry all the time .

Why don't you just go enjoy your game , and after that your life ?

En serio dejen de joder
I remember the demo already had a Versus mode on the selection screen, which seem to indicate they did had plans to implement PvP on release.

Charging for the PvP content would be a bad move by ActivisonBlizzard. People were promised PvP. Even ActivisionBlizzard wouldn't be that stupid considering the problems at launch and rage already aimed at them. (Bobby Kotick will probably have a temper tantrum over this though, since he doesn't care about anything else than filling his own wallet. I can see his PA wiping the drool from his chin when he sees the potential $$$.)
