Call it --->> "ULTIMATE DELUXE INCREDIBLE AMAZING TURDO BSLAP"
I think it should have been renamed to BLAND, DULL, FLAT, UNINSPIRING or UNSTIMULATING..
lol, OK seriously, rename to brawling? I agree with the reason to change the name, and that Brawling fits a LITTLE better, but I don't think the accuracy was quite portrayed within the name change in my opinion.. mainly because IMO the overall gameplay is extremely unfinished and unrefined.
Any attempt to shine a rock (focus on within) isn't where I feel the priorities ought to be.. How about providing content and meaning.. I DON'T think this is a case where LESS IS MORE.
I am just blown away that this is going to be released, without even a basic scoring system to keep track. Now people can argue about who won all the time. Really??
No combos, nothing unique like "game modifiers" that can be selected.. How about an optional set of weapons or skills to choose from to give people a reason to do this.. If you want ideas, there's a whole community full of them.
What you have planned to provide, is nothing more than BARE MINIMUM with the LEAST thought or creativity implemented. A BASIC fighting system with.. well nothing.. you didn't add ANYTHING.. you built a couple maps and allowed players to hit each other, that's it!!!
This from a company with a once SOLID reputation for QUALITY and POLISHED game content where the DETAILS were refined. I feel like this game was made by another company to be honest. :(
My physical game box, that I bought in June of 2012, still has features not yet implemented in the game. It is now February, 2013.. disappointments and broken promises.
I hate to be negative, but I cannot help being REAL.. I wanted D3 to be so much more also.. Many have left, I'm one of those who keeps hanging on, but I just don't know for how much longer..
Myself and many others saw the Blizzcon videos and were excited about the PVP and TEAM DM shown. I just don't know why we can't get what we saw (looked fun). Are you going to keep these things from the players just because you are worried about powerful players teaming up and killing everyone? That's a very small percentage. Friends can play each other and a matchmaking based on DPS shouldn't be TOO difficult to implement..
I really HOPE you are not holding key features back like real PVP, Team DM, the MYSTIC, etc just to justify an EXPANSION pack. I hope that's not the motivator here, people aren't that stupid to fall for that trick...
