Then when I said don't judge a game on a demo/beta it will never be like the full product you chewed me a new one and raged and said its going to be amazing.
Well, don't want to be that person but told you so =p
Beta was only normal difficulty, and I had a blast with it. Nothing like Inferno, I don't think anyone expected them to make inferno so... crappy. It's like a completely different game. If Inferno played like normal after you had the best gear in the game, I feel the game would of been great. It was just a completely untested mess, way worse than I ever imagined a multi-million dollar Blizzard game being after so much development time.
I remember Jay saying in one of his interviews "My number one goal is to make you feel extremely overpowered, and the ability to just blow demons away". Inferno was the exact opposite of that even with the best gear. All I will say is... I had much more respect for blizzard before D3 than I do now. 1.0.4 may bring the game closer to how "we visioned it", but my interest is focused on other games now. I'll probably give it another go when an expansion comes out in 2 years.

This. And a BNET 1.0 type interface.

Yes! I'll be ready for my ~50 hour marathon at midnight on the 25th. Hopefully GW2 doesn't pull a whole "inferno" type deal at level 80.
