I hate to do this, but let me quote my own post.
Sorry folks, but I don't notice any difference at all. And yes, I played plenty today. I've played every day since 1.05. I certainly noticed the damage decrease a couple days ago (which they announced). As far as I'm concerned, it's still that way. In fact, I wouldn't have guessed a single thing has changed until I looked here on the forums.
This seems like nothing more than a case of massive confirmation bias. Yes, something seems strong when you have a huge pack of people backing it up. But it's not unheard of for fiction to be so well backed by a large throng of people. Note things like corroborating stories of alien abductions (they tend to discuss things together, and amongst all the talk, obviously similarities in stories will arise, and they use those similarities to strengthen their claims). It seems nice that so many people, without having met before, can share similar independent stories of alien abductions, but that doesn't make it anything other than claims not backed up by anything besides anecdotal evidence.
People tend to want to think that they cannot be faulted for their failures. This leads to a lot of selective perception, which means they're not objectively processing the picture as a whole, but rather, taking the bits that help confirm what they already want to believe. And when they see others on the forums doing the same thing, it strengthens their conviction.
Thanks, Lyrria, for confirming that is is nothing but a case of mass delusion. Yes, when a few people share the same delusion, and they use a form of media to strengthen each others' convictions, to the point that a massive thread comes about, the case seems compelling. This is similar to how religions, cults, conspiracy theories, and other such nonsense arises. You have to note that, when this happens, the case itself has not ascended from anything beyond anecdote.
Whenever I have a ton of lag, and massive lag spikes, I want nothing more than to jump on the forums and look for others that report the same thing. When we can go all merry and say "hey, Blizzards' servers suck! hahaha!" But I have to face the fact that I'm in a wireless home, with room mates that like to download.
