Great thread lol.  I do like this one-liner in there:

Damn. Straight for the jugular!

Is the dupe thing actually real though? Kind of hard to tell from reading that thread. Probably fake but at least it produced a zinger.

Well, that sorta ties into what I was responding to, though.  It really doesn't seem like the game was designed around the AH.

I'm confused as to whether you're agreeing with me or not.  It seems like you're disagreeing, but what you're pointing out is exactly the kind of thing that points to the AH being a tacked-on thing whose interactions with other systems wasn't thought about anywhere near sufficiently.

Looking at the GAH, they have really shot themselves in the foot with items now selling in the billions.

Nice way to stop people from hitting Inferno Diablo though.

If bots are snapping up deals, couldn't players at least sell items (if they ever find them) and make good money?  Buying might be harder, but do the bots have the tier below mega-awesome-amazing priced out of reach, too?

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

Yes, but it was a cock I could immediately use, instead of one what was too small and so I had to go to crags list the RMAH to find one fit for the job.  why so serious?

You should quit picking on the monkey, since he is an easy mark when it comes to blizzard products.

Blizzard is hiring for the D3 team:

! Production Director
! Senior Producer
! Senior Software Engineer, Console Gameplay
! Senior Software Engineer, Server

The "!" is from their site and denotes an urgent opening I guess.

I don't think anyone disagrees that the game isn't good. It's not good in it's current state. Where the disagreement lies is whether or not it can be easily repaired, and/or has the pieces to be really fun.

The game can be repaired, blizzard knows that well, that is not the issue.  This whole thing has certainly hurt their brand and they know it, making a public show of how they are firing people and fixing things isn't so much for diablo but for their public image.  I can't be the only one who has gone from the "blizzard game, must buy" to the "wait and see" category.

Nothing they do now can repair that. They basically have to release a flawless product in MOP.

MoP was a no-brainer for me before D3. Now... wait and see.

I'm not alone in having had that change of heart too, and I'd be surprised if my circle of friends was completely unrepresentative.

I don't think MoP is gonna help much as it's really only of interest to people still playing WoW. Unless they can make it a reason to come back and play WoW and I can't see anything doing that for me and a whole lot of ppl.

It doesn't matter if people buy it that bought D3. What matters is the buzz. They need to reinstate an aura of competence for their next huge release, which I believe will be the next Starcraft Xpac.

MoP was always a "maybe" for me but HotS was a "yes".

Now I'm more "meh, it's Blizzard telling me how I should play their game" after the abortion of Cataclysm and the trainwreck that was D3.

Blizzard no longer equates to instant buy for me which is how I felt post WotLK and SC2.

I keep hoping that they'd dump the Activision mindset and go back to providing entertainment. SC2 is the only recent release that I unreservedly enjoyed.

I'm hoping they can totally re-vamp D3 but am wondering if they just let it languish - I'd hope not.

I bought D3 and enjoyed it on normal. If only the cash grab had been a little more subtle.  It annoys me to think I have to spend real money over the $60 in order to fight harder difficulties. 

Anyway, won't lose too much sleep over D3.  Just a shame about the loot, AH and online-only play.

Kind of splitting hairs I guess, but I would actually disagree that it isn't good, though I agree with almost all the consequences of what you are calling its "not-goodness."  (brand damage and such)  I think the majority of the game is fantastic, but that it has some pretty glaring issues that should have been avoidable and, imho, aren't easy to fix (some of them are, but not all of them).

Obviously I've ranted quite a bit about these problems and I do agree that it has tarnished Blizzard's rep a bit, at least for me, hence the "splitting hairs" bit.  But if a friend asked me if it was a good game, I'd basically say it's a very good game that should have been a great game, and points toward a somewhat ailing Blizzard.
