This thread saddens me greatly. I know that the Battle.net forums have earned a reputation for rough justice, but I do not believe justice is being served by how people are speaking about Jay’s departure from Diablo III.
I am very proud of the Diablo franchise and what the team was able to accomplish with Diablo III. As a gamer I have enjoyed the game and played for many, many nights with friends and family. I’m not, however, going to use that as an excuse. The Diablo community deserves an even better game from Blizzard and we are committed to improving it. We have a talented team in place and have no intention of stopping work on Diablo III until it is the best game in the franchise.
I’m the only person in this thread who has actually worked with Jay. I hired Jay to head up the Diablo project and had the pleasure of getting to work with him, both in building the team and designing the game. He has great design instincts and has added so much to the franchise with his feel for visceral combat, boss battles, and an unparalleled knack for making it fun to smash bad guys. I’ve worked with many, many designers at Blizzard and Jay is one of the best. He has a great career at Blizzard ahead of him and I guarantee that you will enjoy Jay’s game designs in future Blizzard games.
If you love Diablo as much as we do, then please continue to let us know how you feel we can improve the game. If you still feel the need to dish out blame, then I would prefer you direct it at me. I was the executive producer on the project; I hired Jay and I gave him advice and direction throughout the development process. I was ultimately responsible for the game we released and take full responsibility for the quality of the result.
thats fine mr. pardo. but are you the reason to blame for mr. wilson's !@#$ty attitude towards the entire community, fan's and player base? the guy goes on these little %^-*! of a rampage and asks for forgiveness later.....in my mind i would not look in a trait like that for someone to hire. the blame is your's and jay should have directed his "loser" comment at you. you are pathetic and obviously rode someone's shoulders to get where you are now, you should have never hired a 15 year old in a 50 year old's body.
rob, put it this way, you can take the blame all you want, but the people aren't stupid, they know who made some calls and didint, yes you released an unfinished product that took what seemed like FOREVER to do....we get that, past that....but the continuous lies and holding back, his enrage timer, his empty promises, the community feels like he did a terrible job in his position, they feel he/you were greedy for manipulating the aspects of the game to bump sales on the rmah. ie. attk speed nerfs, "new" legs....if you guys took 7 years, you would @#$%ing know, from deep down inside your heart that all of those changes were bull^-*!, you knew those legs wouldint suffice, but you put them in the game anyway. then said oh look we made you guys awesome new ones, head to your local RMAH to pick up the perfect rolled ones.....douche move imo.
i have 0 issue with rmah, none, i do have the issue of how phase plans are executed in order to make the rmah work. just let drop rates be, let the imbal be.....you continue saying or "jay rather" that you want to balance gear classes etc.......but why? because you turn right around and say pvp is supposed to be overpowered and unfair......it's a crock of @#$%.
the community see's it, they see jay manipulating it, and now of course they see you and you will also be remembered as the retard who hired jay. cool life legacy brah.
go ahead ban this account to with your mighty magic ^-*!ing powers.....think i give a @#$% you out your mind. if one person reads this before its removed ill be happy. if rob pardo and jay wilson read this ill be extatic.
oh and ps. if you want titan to work rob, dont let yourself or jay ^-*!ing touch it. no one wants titan is 2021 anyways, and they dont want a peice of @#$% that is revolved around want "jay and you and his team want" they want a game revolving around what they want. DONT ^-*!ING TOUCH IT GOD DAMMIT!
