i understand now....
the people who expect a game to be released complete, with a full feature set are the assholes - and the apologists who simply say "it's no big deal, at least we GET a diablo 3" are the good guys.
whatever reasoning you put behind it, you are still defending them because they have done something that requires defense. they have decided to release incomplete software in order to meet a release date. does that sound like the blizzard we all love? no. it sounds like activision.
if this were the first bad news in regards to d3, it would be nothing - but it's the latest in a line of announcements that have left me underwhelmed for the game. i never ever imagined i would be saying that but it's the truth. I put more hours individually into d1 and d2 than any other game or game series. they made me a gamer, but i will be (pleasantly) surprised if d3 brings back that feeling. Activision has taken over
