April Fools

General Discussion
We are now 5 months post Blizzcon and the only news has been about D1 on GOG.COM. PAX East has come and gone, next up Gamescom. If I did not talk to my wife in 5 months she would tell me to pack my bags and get the heck out. I see most of the Diablo streamers are now running other games, and some fan sites are closing or inactive. I am trying Grim Dawn myself. I will be back for S17. Hopefully we will have good news in the next 5 months. The 2019, 1st quarter earnings call is coming up, should be interesting. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
No April Fools joke is the April Fools joke!
we still have phonez you know...
considering diablo mobile was original an april fools joke heres hoping today they will reveal diablo immortal was just a long con april fools joke as the recent years have been pretty lackluster on the joke front
So much concern trolling.

I'd actually pay you to not post for 5 months.

you mentioned handing out money for somebody to do something and you're surprised when someone else shows up offering to take your money for doing that thing.

I would have found it funny, but I think some people would still be very angry about it and would see it as Blizzard rubbing salt in the wound. I would take it as Blizzard making fun of themselves.

Glad Reddit did it though.

They also had the usual Fake WoW Patch notes which tend to be punny.

I'm sure I could get more than you. I'm a Republican too, so I could get triple the "paid off" price to not post anymore. ~grins~

At this point, I think it would just have been very bad business to mention anything about Diablo and Mobile phones. It would be insulting to Netease who are the actual developers of the game and base most of their business on mobile games. I think they handled it well.

Still the joke was already made... out of season.
Busyness, not once but twice. It’s business ffs!

Blizzard still does not have iPhone beta signup for D:I.

Not that I am interested or ever will play a mobile game, but 5 months since the 11/2 debacle and there is no new news about D:I.

Is it that hard to make a mobile game?

We know it is very hard to make a PC game!
