Before reading just know this whole post is my opinion.
So everyday before I play Diablo I check Battle.net because I like to see what people are saying in the popular topics. The only downside is that every single day there is a at least one thread about how bad this game is, or where the flaws are. Now i can appreciate that some of the posts are well written, literate and informative. I.e, posts about what the overall community would like to see added to the game from a census of the community and trying to get the word to a CM and hopefully eventually to a developer. BUT then we have the threads of people raging and QQing about every other aspect of the game. I.e NERF RD TOO HARD!!!!!! Or THIS GAME IS SO BAD I WANT THIS AND THAT. It's such a depressant to see this when I still manage to have fun with the game, there is nothing more of a buzzkill than seeing people point out all the things that may not be perfect. I understand Blizzard still has a ways to go with the game and who knows, these next few patches could prove to really turn the game around; PvP, new design features etc. All i'm saying is that there are still people out there who enjoy the game and all the people who !@#$% and complain about everything are not accomplishing anything but making other people feel worse about the game.
I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback about this topic.
You Sir, have spoken the absolute truth. But allow me to digress. People often forget how much time, effort, and excruciatingly hard work goes into making a game of this scope. Sleepless nights, feelings of worthlessness, lack of appetite and extreme anxiety are all part of the creative process. Most people would crack under these dire situations. And sadly, some do. I should know, I was one of them. But, whether it's music, film, TV or video games, you have to give up everything to be the best in what you want to do.
The point I'm trying to make is this: Jay Wilson, the Developers and everyone at Blizzard have worked extremely hard to get where they are. And their products speak for themselves. Every single product they've ever released to the has been critically acclaimed and innovative. Furthermore, they have never put out a public inferior product. Ever. Diablo III is not a failure. And I seriously doubt that anyone could possibly deny that.
So, c'mon people! Show a little respect for Blizzard, Jay Wilson and his entire crew by giving them a little praise on the forums here and there. Sometimes a little kindness goes a long way. And besides, you met Jay and his crew in Development Hell! How cool was that?!
In the future, we'll all get along. There won't be any trolls. We'll all be respectful, outgoing, friendly people who share class builds, gems and loot.
amicable. gregarious. esteem.
