If Diablo 3 was a great game, do you think most of the community would be sour like they are currently?
Hard to say, since forum most notable function is place to complain. You can see it in a lot of great MMORPG. It's impossible to satisfy all people, and the larger the player base the more people dissatisfied.
(I'm generalizing because this is my opinion)
If Diablo 3 had content put out regularly, do you think this community would outrage like it does constantly?
Of course. Every change there will always be complaint. Introduce BOA and AH user get angry, Buff legendaries and current BiS owner get angry. Nerf Elites and hardcore gamer get angry. Buff elites and casual gamers get angry. Diablo 3 have too wide range of interests.
If Diablo 3 had legitimate specs for each class, that were ACTUALLY unique, do you think people would react like this?
I guess the people that complaint about lack of variance in classes will complaint less. There will be more complaint on balancing PVP, i guess.
If Diablo 3 wasn't being released for console, and you had a Single player, and 8 player game options, do you think 80% of the people who bought the game, would have stayed?
Actually lack of single player game didn't have that much complainer compared to Itemization, Bot and AH problem.
Would 12 millions people buy Diablo 3, if the cracked version showed up in torrent within 1 week and can be played as single player game ?
If Diablo 3 was more Dark, like its predecessors, with pentagrams, and evil real world demonic relations, do you think it would grasp people into the game more?
I like the idea of darker grimmer video and better music. At the moment, it feel lacking in atrocities.
If Diablo 3 was, what they said it was going to be before launch, would people act as though someone put sand in their potato salad?
I don;t follow Diablo 3 that closely before launch, so I don;t get that disappointed. I guess the same people that does it are the same people that declare D3 for console will be the best game ever after they watch the preview video.
If Diablo 3 didn't kill off Deckard Cain, the only interesting character left besides Tyrael, do you think the long time fans of Diablo would be more happy?
I don;t remember Cain that much interesting, I guess I don;t immersed in D1 and D2 that much. I have to agree, though.. the death is lack certain emotional involvement.
Actually, It's difficult to understand why with so much resource in their hands, Blizzard can;t make better video animation between acts and when you get certain key points.
This game need more animation where players can press printscreen button to get a great wallpaper.
Think about it. I'll wait.
Hmm, additional note. In my opinion, the one key for the reason why community is so sour, is because they feel their opinion is disregarded. The last few months, communication is improved between Devs and playerbase and i think it improved the community a little bit.
If small communication improvement between devs and playerbase, make significant change on community, wouldn't you think the logical choice is to improve it in even greater ?
