This has seriously gotten ridiculous. We have been "trolled" by Blizzard for years on this game.

Even worse, I think the WoW pass thing is borderline FRAUD! While that might not be a winnable case in court, this is the WORSE possible way to treat their loyal fans.

no

A lie is the Cake.

humm.... looks taste
I don't see how the annual pass is fraud.... but then again I read the contract first so.....
Wait, how is Blizzard trolling you? All they said and continued repeating was EARLY 2012. Q2 is still EARLY 2012.
this is so ridiculously ridiculous i think i might go cry in a corner while eating an icecream cone and grooming a zebra
So they've trolled us by giving info, showing footage and starting a beta for a series with millions of fans? I don't get it.

I've seen these threads before, and it’s concerning to me. I'm confused as to what people believed the Annual Pass provided when they signed up.

It's a year-long World of Warcraft contract for people who would be playing World of Warcraft for the next year, but who also want to play Diablo III. In those cases we say Ok, agree to pay through for that year, and you don't have to make the choice, we'll give you Diablo III for free, plus a bunch of other goodies just in case you're not totally sold.

I'm not sure how a Diablo III release date impacts your intent to continue playing and paying for World of Warcraft for a year. Or maybe a better question is, how does a free copy of Diablo III being released at any different point in time affect your intent to pay for World of Warcraft for a year?

Even if Diablo III was to release after your 1 year contract was up and paid off, you're saving the cost of a copy of Diablo III, and keeping all the extras. I don't see how that's a trick, or a scam, or otherwise a bad deal. Unless you were buying it, not intending to play WoW, believing it would get you Diablo III sooner than other people?

I sympathize with people excited about the game, and disappointed it’s not out, I want it to be finished as much as anyone, but I just have trouble understanding this point as I see it consistently made.

how about when blizz changed the wording in a contract to "early next year" to "when the game is released" after lord knows how many people bought it. THAT is what has me worried.


Edit" scuse me for being a bit blunt but im on my 6th shot of vodka since I heard this news today

of course of course.

As also Q3 and Q4.
Pure scum
many ppl thought ....that d3 was going to release before Q2 (i wonder where they got those ideas) then they bought the annual pass...so they would play WOW till D3 shows up....

i think its good marketing

This.

Also, I fail to see how anything about the Annual Pass has to do with the release of D3 at all.

Now I didn't sign up for it, but my understanding is that you pay for WoW for 12 months and you get D3 for free. If you're signed up for it for a set amount of time (i.e. 12 months), then how is a release date "change" (not that it has been announced officially yet or anything) negatively affecting that?

You agreed to 12 months of WoW, and that's exactly what you're paying for. You get Diablo 3 for free, and that's exactly whats going to happen. So what's the issue?
