the "ruiners of diablo" series are hard at work once again, to change the name of dueling to brawling, after months of discussion they have yes decided that the 2 hobbits are not orcs. . . .
what an embarssment
I appreciate that y'all are at least trying to address your communication problems. I can't help but wonder which feedback you're seeing, though, 'cause it sounds like a totally different set of feedback from the rest of us. D3 does not have messaging problems. D3 has content problems. Re-naming dueling to brawling does not address folks' concerns with the content of the system.
As to the fact that you deemed this bit of a re-branding exercise to be so important as to merit a Blue post... Well, there are folks out there with pretty decent threads, about fairly serious concerns, who've been begging for some Blue attention for weeks, and who will likely see this as something of a slap in the face.
02/08/2013 12:00 PMPosted by LylirraI'm gonna go ahead and call it dueling, if you corporate types don't mind. Stop trying so hard to not be Diablo 2, it's kinda pathetic.
Most of the feedback we've been seeing from players has been in the context of what dueling was in Diablo II and how it exists in other games. Generally speaking, dueling in other games has always been something that you can do in the normal world at a moment’s notice (or at least initiate at a moment’s notice through a challenge). It’s something that only involves two people, and carries with it the expectation of formality and structure, and to a degree…fairness. That’s not really what dueling (now brawling) is about in Diablo III, and we want to make sure that the scope of the system isn't being misrepresented by its name.

that's why the renamed it, they didnt want to add objectives and scoreboard and wanted to make it mindless because it would require effort on their end. Which they don't like to do.
