Have you considered that might be because the game's over seven years old?

that argument is moot given league of legends is older.

heck gta 5 is only a year older...
The amount of active streamers is not a good indicator of the amount of active players.

Typically player numbers peak at the start of a season and then steadily decline until the next season starts.

actually it is. streamers just dont stream games randomly if they want to get money off it.

You right it doesn't but I think its more of a reflection. It's not an accurate representation but it reflects the state of the game to people en mass.
The number of active streamers indicates only one thing, the number of active streamers. It has no correlation to the entire active playerbase.

Well given that we have no concrete numbers for diablo 3 active players because blizzard or Activision's afraid to show it then I used a simple way to show it.

Like I have discussed before it not an ACCURATE representation but more of a reflection.
No arguing it's a dead (or at least dying) game. There are many, MANY 5 seconds fixes that would re-invigorate the game. However, the RMAH is done, D3 sales is done, RotN is over...Blizzard made all the money they are going to make. While I question why they never added microtransactions, their interest in supporting the game further is basically nil.

They are throwing everything into Diablo 4. I just hope they have better, or at least more experienced (and passionate) devs for 4.

I don't think they can make great changes to the game's core without re-writting it.

at it's core i think it the game developer just didn't try that hard? I guess...
... their interest in supporting the game further is basically nil.

That doesn't correlate well with the fact that there is a dedicated classic games group maintaning the game and providing updates roughly every three months.

Probably by 2-3 people. lol

Jokes aside, it's more of a bandaid support to save face.

Have you considered that might be because players like you which negate every idea to renew the game and make fun from others ? Oh hell i think so. If i were dev i would too abandon players like you.

When people come up with good ideas, I support and up-vote them. As an example, I've put many up-votes on the recent Barbarian buff thread. The reason I don't support your ideas is because I've never seen you suggest a good one.

If you want more support, come up with better ideas.

I like his response more than yours given yours was dimwitted.

How can you ever think that age of the game can affect the games status as GOAT?

Fun fact, Hearthstone is older than diablo 3
Path of exile is a year older, but still going strong.

Its all the diablo3ers have left as a defense for a game that is no longer as active as it once was.... OH BUT ITS OLD
