I just hope people dont leave negative reviews on the game without even trying it when it does come out.


Why would anyone want to throw money at a game you can't finish without throwing more money at it? Have you every played a 'pay 2 win' game? You literally can't play it unless you buy things. That's the whole point of this "game".


It is Blizzard going lock, stock and barrel the EA way...
Either two things happened, people disliked on more than one youtube account, or they paid youtube to remove the dislikes.

One of the two.

The way blizz has been acting, only one of those scenarios is believable at this point.

Even if it were more than one account, the fact that all those dislikes disappeared changes nothing, those were still votes (legit or not) that were suddenly erased.
As a soon-to-be classic player.

I feel bad for Diablo players. That so sucks...
At this stage the company can just ban me from the forum. I have never felt so let down and back stabbed by the company. Yeah I can see them doing the very same thing to wow soon.

Greed is a terrible thing and the company has it bad.
Wow. They sure are.

I have had that page up for 2 days. It was up to 317k. Now down to 226k.

Zero integrity shown by Blizz.
It's the Russian bots reeeeeeeeeeeee

...

No Last night and earlier today there were some well thought out comments why this will bite the company in the backside there was nothing rude in the comments or anything hurtful just how the game is not even welcomed by the chinese either who hate Netease as well Now those post are gone and they were heavily up voted.


Yes because sowing discord, being negative without any basis, spreading falsehoods without corroborating evidence seems appropriate.

Nobody has played the full game, yet everyone seems to know how it will perform.

God forbid Blizzard try to expand their brand into other markets, I will certainly take the word of internet trolls over an established game development company with over 20 years of game development, makes sense.


Dude... I am not even a Diablo fan...

It's a freaking mobile... Why you think he has to respond to "is mobile a dirty word?"

It's like seeing a sports channel turn into a cooking channel. Entirely different market.

The Diablo forums are that way. *points*


Not everyone is able to post in the Diablo forums. So they will post in the GD here instead.

I may not play Diablo anymore but I'm still pissed at this diablo rip off mobile game bliz is making.

I have literally never heard of this even being a possibility. I was expecting them to just turn off the rating altogether, but how do you actually delete 100K dislikes?


Youtube regularly deletes comments considered spam and dislikes/likes from sources they believe to be bots. It's very possible some real people got caught in the crossfire, but it exists.

Also worth noting in the youtube comments section people are complaining about deleted comments


AGain Youtube auto-flagging as spam. Notice that the comment saying it was the 'second time removed' has returned, as well as the OG one from that red pill shark guy, even though he posted that like 15+ times.

Because spam takes a long time for the system to sort though and then spamming the same comment over and over again doesn't help the system at all.

Bots are always removed on popular videos. This is legit not an issue at all, very common practice on Youtube.

Not just greed--if they really are paying to have dislikes removed, they have an incompetent team of PR and damage control personnel. They're delusional if they believe people wouldn't notice or voice it--and if they actually knew their player bases, they'd know we're some of the loudest in the entire video game community. Ultimately, their deletion of comments and removal of dislikes will only backfire and draw even more contempt for their business practices. I've watched other developers fall from grace, but this is probably the most cringeworthy succession of events on the way down.

Blizzard is in full-fledged damage control mode. There are game articles calling Diablo gamers "entitled a$$es", "the vocal minority", "edgelords", etc:

Disgusting.

"Diablo Immortal blowback gives Mashable a new chance to look like the fools they are."

But sure, attack the players / customers. That worked so well for Disney's Star Wars too.

Exactly. I never played Diablo, but seeing that the company can take one of their most well-known flagships and sink it by throwing it on land just baffles me.
you know it is bad when Heels vs Babyface makes a emergency video about the change of votes

Get woke. . . go broke.
Blizz Dev: "We hear you, and we have several more Diablo projects under development."

Me: "Then you should have come here prepared to announce one of those other projects as well. Did you not witness the reaction Command & Conquer mobile received!?!"

Mrrggll commented about it directly on the video.
It’s bots or fake accounts guys. People use bots to dislike/downvote crap they dislike all the time, it’s not hard to do.
BLIZZARD AND YOUTUBE REMOVED 100K DISLIKES FROM THE ORIGINAL TRAILER AND OTHER VIDEOS TOO,

THEY ARE ALTERING VIEW COUNTERS.

RISE UP AGAINST CENSORSHIP!!!!

I didnt know you could pay on youtube to remove downvotes... is this real life? How is this the world we are entering?
