Its obvious from your responses that you are definitely not "perfectly fine with people not sharing your opinion." Its also obvious that you haven't played Diablo 2, where 80-90% of Diablo 3 players came from
I played me hellavalot of Diablo2 and Lord of Destruction.
I don't mind people disagreeing with me. That doesn't mean I shouldn't defend my thesis.
Also I didn't knew Diablo2 sold more than 8 million copies. Not that I advocate the game being tailored to the WoW population, but you really need to get your facts straight.
1) He is not really trolling (I think).
2) He disagrees with almost everything the OP said.
I am not trolling. I also said that I agree with him on several subjects, namely his views on Challenge, Itemization, the Auction House and that certain Active and Passive skills need to go.
I however truly don't like his approach, which I discussed in detail in my first post in this thread.

That's the exact reason I am posting. I wasn't thrilled when last year Kripparrian decided to make suggestions, which were later implemented, namely the Paragon system.
I think that system did more harm than good. While this again a subject for another thread, I am gonna mention that one of the very negative things about the Paragon system was that it gave Blizzard... I would say the excuse not to address the drops and the itemization. How so?
Prior to the implementation of the Paragon system the players could farm for like eight hours straight and get nothing, even lose gold to repair bills. After the implementation of the Paragon system the players could and still can get nothing after farming for eight hours straight, but at least would get few Paragon levels and some minor stats improvement. That made it so that the actual issues were never addressed.
What actual issues you might ask? I find an issue with any game, which makes so that you better go to a day, eight hour job in order to succeed in the game instead of actually playing the game for eight hours.
While our Gosu seems to have noble intentions and is working to finally solve those issues, It seems to me that he's gonna cause harm to the game along the way. Call me troll, tell me "You don't understand", but please, do take what I say into account. Just keep it in mind.
