Diablo® III

Diablo3 is not a failure.

(Locked)

12 million sold

88 average metacritic

online still thriving

definitely a success in any sense of the word

grumblers are a small but very loud minority, even so, Bliz is trying to help them out and make more reasons for peeps to replay the game or engage in the endless ARPG endgame.

They just add more awesome with every patch.

Grumble away but it doesn't change the fact that you are complaining about a resoundingly successful game loved by the majority of its players.

Because of D1 and D2.


88 average metacritic

Reviewers are often paid to give good scores.

Is this a joke? It's mainly bots and auction house tycoons.


definitely a success in any sense of the word

Financially, yes.

You have no proof of the size of fans and haters.

Just like that patch where they added in full blown competitive PVP that was promised at launch?

Diablo3 is not a failure,


if they could ever do something about the lag spikes over here.
D3 was only fun because it was free.
Does it not bother anyone in here that almost every post that disagrees with the OP either gets reported or simply deleted by an employee of the company? Is this what it has come to - agree with us or your posts, even intelligently written ones not intending to hate/belittle but simply add to constructive dialogue, will be stamped out?
thats how the the Diablo crowd was man. 9 million people who bought the game because Diablo 2 was AWESOME!!! Now look at it. All because the decided to get a few more bucks out of the "subscription fee based" drop system. If this game was like D2, where it was offline, if you wanted to do ranked ladders and what not you had to make a online character on bnet. Offline because would be able to modify the game and make it way more interesting. Look at what mods did for Skyrim. Vanilla Skyrim is a decent game, with mods the PLAYERS help make the game is GOTY worthy.

But no. Lets make it online only to make sure there is no cheating, duping, hacking, griefing, game ending silliness that only exists on leet servers made for pro gamers. "Cheating used to be bad back in the day." Yeah, if you went and found public games. Even though people still complain about cheating and duping and having less reward because now that they players aren't allowed to "hack the game" now they can just "dual wield credit cards on the RMAH" and buy their way into the same results as if they were cheating in the first place.

The only main concern is now blizzard is making the buck on that transaction and no one seems to really notice that it's the worst offensive reason that blizzard has made it acceptable to buy your way into a game using real life money to gain a advantage, and everyone who's ever used the RMAH even the regular GAH is to blame for this. Does that included me? Yes it does. I got sick and tired of getting crap drops, so I plunked down to buy gold. Made things so, so much simpler. Just like they intended.

12 million sold in year 1 with around 1.2M (10%) still playing consistently to date.

10% say success on the game's dedicated forums while 90% say fail by not playing.

simple logic.

the majority are botting and generating gold for real money. truth.
That's why it's loved. as for those actually playing the game because of the game and not for real money gains, it's very little. you speak of D3 anywhere it gives off the impression of "mediocre" or "sucks" or "needs improvement". not exactly the highest social topic on any given venue. the only positives exist here in the d3 forums but those are... really thoughtless defenses.

if d3 was good it would speakf or itself, complaints aren't a sign that the game sucks, but positives that don't elaborate on anything really just mean nothing and that you're just trying to convince people of something that's not there.

DIII stands on its own quite well it would seem.


It sure does, and not in a good way. When all you concentrate to defend this game is it's sales, then you're just proving everyone else's point that this game was a pure money-grab by blizzard.

If you claim this game is perfect, why are the devs agreeing that the game could be better? Or why have there been MAJOR changes to the game since release? They even concurred that there really was no end-game. They FAILED to produce a Team-Deathmatch style PvP like they promised. They slapped in some "Brawling" which they said would NEVER be in the game.

This is definitely NOT a success in a lot of peoples eyes. Financial success, sure. But that is it. One big Money-grab.


+1
Still waiting on anyone who is defending the game in this thread to counter argue this

- side note, I will say to those who just type "PoE" to stop, we all know that game is trash, you're doing nothing to make a case about the issues with this game . . .not to mention if it's that good why would you bother posting here? Aren't you too busy being engrossed in PoE amazing combat and gameplay?

Oh, that's right, your not, cause they suck, thus you come here to get your jollies by hating. Although I loathe them, explain to me how that's not more pathetic then a diehard D3 fanboy.
