WHen money is involved with the players, they tend to stick around. Thats just the way it is. Some peeps have cashed out and they probably wont be back, and some of those same folks might come back and respend there money back on it again if it gets fixed. The long termers that stay till the end though usually make out the best in terms of items. They have alot of work to do on this game, im just collecting items in hopes that one day theyll be rare and godly. Remember the value of old d2 08 items Valor, Valkyrie and stuff like that. It could happen.
Man i hate to admit this but there is less and less items in the auction house then there was before and more and more of my d3 friends are leaving diablo 3 :( but i still have a few here and there left, friends i have for over 10 years now. We all are veterans of d2 hoping d3 will reach its potential.
Just as your friends are leaving, it's probably the reason they don't allow you to see the number of users online...because only us masochists are left.
I can't see myself buying an expansion if all it does is add back some of the things that were removed, adds an act or two, adds some new classes, but fails to address the underlying core systems which bottomline, plays a key role in the rewards aspect of the game when it comes to loot.
Like you, I have or should I say, had hope. But I've kind of reached a level of indifference. At this point, I'm just going along for the ride since I already paid for this game. Good or bad, Diablo III is what it is and the ball is basically on Blizzard's side of the court in terms of proving (not by rhetoric but by game play experience) they want to make this version of the game the best in the franchise.

02/01/2013 05:30 PMPosted by babinroAs of today, it would really surprise me if the expansion failed to sell 1.5 million copies within the first 3 months.
D3 will "survive"?
It sold more copies than any other game, remember? Huge potential base of x-pack buyers. Plus Blizz has some egg on its face from the on-going issues. Huge incentive for them to fix it.
