So they are even inconsistent and say DRM will fix things, but we cant beat Chinese farmers so lets just profit off them and our consumers.
I dont care if you are trolling or sarcastic because there are actualy people who are as stupid as you project to be, or actually are and they need to hear this. Gaming is getting strip mined and pillaged by stockholders and we are all gonna be drowning in a sea of map packs.
The accumulated filth of all their DRM and map packs will foam up about their waists and all the casuals and apathetic will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No."

Again, having been involved and helping design their NI...You're wrong.

Features weren't stripped, they're brand new enterprise servers on a NGINX base -- More modern than even our Govt's servers.

The RMAH does give them revenue but, it's not going to make up what they spent on the server-base for you already...Brand new racks are expensive...The RMAH isn't going to make a profit for them for YEARS.

In fact, they haven't even made a profit on the game yet from release sales.

I'm not trolling or being stupid, I'm being realistic.

They don't need you to save them or anyone...They have WoW.

That's going to affect a person's opinion of the game - same as if you had a car and every 2/3 km/m it cut out and needed to be restarted
Or buying a brand-new PSU that works; but every once in a while it shuts off or doesn't start at all (Same thing but less, 'everything has to be a car analogy on OCN.')

Personal experiences are everything... and frankly the thousands (although who knows; they could be hundreds re-reviewing) that give a poor-score and complain will hopefully kill the few individuals who come into a thread looking for help from going, 'Works for me; you're the minority and it's all your fault.'

So far no issues for me I have been able to login everytime I have had free time and played until I was done. Guess the positives of having a job kids working out etc is I don't have tons of time to play so I don't notice the issues others get all worked up over when in reality they aren't a big deal.

PC Gaming is one big mess.
Pubs and Devs don't listen to their customer base, and the customer base wants a near perfect game thus never satisfied.

No win situation. Pure PC gaming is dead, we only have an overly powerful and expensive console.

Angry nerds are angry. This is why I don't use metacritc. People give low scores for the dumbest stuff. D3 is great and I will definitely play it more than D2.

This I plan to play it quite a bit over the coming months. Also based on how much I anticipate I will play over time it feels like a good deal only having to pay $60.00 and not have to pay a monthly fee.

What if this was another software like Microsoft Windows/Office or OS X? If certain technical difficulties affected this much people, would complaints still be justified?

What makes Diablo 3 such a special case that all complaints are irrelevant?

Good lord, the self-righteousness of some people. It's a good game, but of course the magic you felt when you played D2 the first time can never be duplicated. Yes, there were issues at launch. By and large, those issues are resolved. Not quite all of them were on Blizzard's end, but most were.

People need to let it go and admit that Blizzard could **** on bread and they'd still buy the game and play it endlessly.

I didn't feel magic when I played D2 for the first time. I was too busy nerdraging that they removed spell books and added the "noob" skill system that gives you tons of skills for just leveling lachen.gif.
