Blizzard is still one of the best developers out there. Have they made mistakes with DiabloIII? We all know the answer to that. But they do care enough to keep working at it. I don't know any other company that continues to support their games for as long as Blizzard does.

Valve would be the closest, but still fall short of Blizzard in that respect. I really think revamping the skill system in D3 would fix the game for the most part.

Allow us a skill tree that lets us invest points into skills to make them more powerful (ala. D2)
and redo the Skill Runes, then allow 2 runes on each skill... so we can customize our builds more.


You pretty much nailed the problems with D3 in 2 simple sentences, and how issues players are having could be solved.

The game generates gear which provides the boost to damage and ehp the character needs to survive/advance in the game.

Skills are static and once unlocked, only provide a different means of delivering that said amount of damage.

This will never change thou as long as a RMAH is tied to the game, and gear is sold for real money.

World of Warcraft is still good. You should play a panda it will make you happy :D. Starcraft is also fairly balanced. If it wasn't for D3 I would say Blizzard is a phenomenal company.

wow is still good? lol what game have you been playing and for how long? pandaland is a farmville sim designed to attract the young demographic and asians. wow has been bad for some time now. recycled raid content, progressive dumbing down of everything that used to mean something/took a time investment, unbalanced PVP centered around 1 or 2 FOTM op classes for patch/nerf cycles. sorry man i disagree. I played wow since vanilla and it unfortunately has reached its breaking point. let my sub end. If you enjoy it atm then power to you man

Activision destroyed blizzard.

The first guy who invested in blizzard said to them "I`ll just pour the money in, u guys keep doing whatever u were doing cuz u were doing it the rght way"

This is what the investor said to Mike and his gang at blizzard. Blockbuster after blockbuster they made amazing games, until activision came in. From that point on blizz started its downfall.

Blizzard is still a great video game company. I did enjoy D3 for what it is, or i wouldn't have put 700 odd hours into it like I did over the last 7 months.

But to come into a thread and say D3 rules the haters don't, is being blindly naive at best.

So then you really believe that Activision told Blizz to make sure that this game sucks lemons. So a game that sucks lemons would sell millions. I mean one that was designed to suck lemons. Also why did Blizz bother to fix this game?

That is because unlike most companies that would cut and run after they got a huge profits. Blizz is continually fixing and improving their games. That is their hallmark, because as Mike has said Blizz has never released a perfect game. Jay and IIRC even his crew agreed that Blizz is in it for the long haul.


you missed my points. I was referring to blizz as a whole entity--not d3 specific only. I am concerned with the direction they are heading as a company.


Why the hell would anyone be emotionally invested in a corporation?

You don't know what your talking about and you got serious nostalgia. PVP has never been balanced. Every season has had FOTM combos, but at least in MOP there are more viable combos then in any other season. As for pokemon and farmville, I don't like it either, but it's there as an option for those who do so I'm not hating. I think it is a good thing that blizzard is adding alternatives for those who don't want to raid or arena.

What do you have against asians and young people..? :-(

how can you NOT have nostalgia from fond memories of a game that was once amazing--yet slowly decayed to a mass profit mechanism. I have nothing against the young people and asians. I was stating a fact as to what demographic MOP was marketed towards. ok lets not derail too bad here

My memory of "Vanilla" were 40 man raids that probably less than 5% of the population could even participate end. A game where the vast majority of casuals (including myself) had nothing to look forward to.

O yah. Btw, you were probably young when you were playing "vanilla."

Most of those 40 mans were just people getting carried by 10-20 people. Lets not make this about wow though this thread is about how blizzard has become, but as an example what was your memory of customer service in vanilla compared to cata and/or mop. They got use to the money and now greed drives them more than pleasing their community.
