Rather than being happy that we had an awesome set of games and a company that is dedicated to our specific entertainment desires,
This makes you sound like a plant and I can't take you seriously. Real people don't talk like this.
If you've seen other posts by me over the last year you wouldn't think that. I've very critical of Blizzard when I think they're wrong.
However, at heart, I am a fan boy. I've been playing their games since I got "The Lost Vikings" and a SNES for Christmas in high school.....
Again, this ultimate outcome is the communities fault.
I tend to think that they anticipate overwhelmingly negative feedback for MoP, and a lukewarm (if any) response to HotS. I also suspect that they are going to kill off every single character in Diablo that the Diablo fans give a damn about like Tyrael, Deckard, and so forth to end an IP that wasn't actually started and conceived by them originally.
I think that they know a BlizzCon under those circumstances would be disastrous.
There will only be negative feed back on MoP by the vocal community at large. (Which is really tiny...) Just like the only ones really complaining about "faceroll" and other false-hoods from the end of Wrath were on this forum. The other 11.99 million players were having fun in game until they hit level 85 and went, what the heck happened to my casual fun MMO?
Everyone I know is looking forward to MoP. The landscapes are really pretty, there is no need to grind off hard core content, you only have to play it if you're in the mood to do so, and they're adding features to the game to expand it beyond just being a gearing rat race.
The game needs more of these side features at this point in it's development anyway.
And I'm sorry, HotS looks really cool to me, I'm loving the RPG elements in the campaign. D3, it's time to pass the storyline to a new generation. The world is supposed to be brutal and unforgiving, people living more than one or two iterations just doesn't make sense.
