From reading between the lines from interviews from the devs in both d3 and wow, basically the devs have meetings for EVERYTHING, to hash out EVERYTHING, and those kind of groupthink sessions have to come to a complete agreement to make them move on anything. Timekiller if I have seen one.
Its probably a workflow of test> MEETING! >new test >MEETING! > Yell at CM to put something online > MEETING!!!!
Yep I'd have to say that blizzard is probably the slowest company ever when it comes to game development and you would think their games would be like the best because of it but this is hardly the case.
I spent sometime watching Marvel Hero's this weekend on twitch and id have to say that although I may not quit D3 completely I wont be playing it near as much. Marvel Hero's is easily with out a doubt a better quality game and took less than half the time to complete compared to most Blizzard games.
I mean seriously what is the point of playing D3? It has absolutely no re playability what so ever, why? because the loot in this game is absolute s h i t. I've been playing D3 since beta nearly every day for 6-12 hours a day and only gotten 1 item that was worth a couple billion, some ppl have farmed more than me and got nothing, this game has to much work involved with little or no reward.
So whats the point in continuing to play it, wait for itemization patch?, i guess but that probably wont happen for months too because as I said blizzard is so damn slow. I think I'll have more fun with less BS playing Marvel Hero's. I highly recommend you check out the live stream's of it, I think you will be impressed.

It must be the fault of forum trolls that they only work one day a week.
And that it took a year to get ID all, PVP is not even "on the table", itemization is linear and boring, there is no character progression or customization, exploits still being found, botters and gold spammers. Yep all the fault of the forum trolls.
