    Blizzard announced that its highly anticipated title, Diablo III, will not ship with Player vs. Player (PvP) gameplay, because its development and refinement is holding Blizzard back from meeting the April 17, 2012 launch date. "The PvP game and systems aren't yet living up to our standards," said Jay Wilson, Game Director. The PvP component will instead be added to the game as a patch, months after the game's launch. The patch will include PvP arenas, achievements, and a matchmaking system. The arenas, according to Wilson, will be "as brutal, bloody, fast-paced, and awesome as we know they can be."

    This is just sad all this time and no pvp. Blizzard should just let Activison take over all there franchises since apparently they cant make anything besides pandas anymore

    It looks like Blizzard are going downhill. The higher you climb the higher you fall from. Not many of the team that made some of the greatest games are in Blizzard anymore and this is more and more evident.

    I just want coop so my wife and I can play together liek the previous Diablo titles. PvP is NOT required.

    And I'm more than willing to wait. I'd rather wait for Blizzard, and Rush Valve and HL3/EP.3.

    Highly unlikely but that would suck so badly if they made PvP element of the game a DLC. that would be so wrong....It would be like CoD with no dedicated servers. wait.........

    You forget activision own blizzard . . .. paying for PVP as DLC seems as likely as 15 dollars for 2 new maps in CoD.

    Where exactly does it say it will be a DLC? There's a 99.9999% chance it will be a patch, especially knowing Blizzard.

    All that I hear is easy prey for pirating. Lack of proper multiplayer is rampant ground for not buying it in many circles.

    Blizzard and activision charge you for everything and anything, I agree it will be a patch . .. one they will charge you for, also I doubt they will be smart enough to price the game properly at launch considering at least half of it is missing. FUCK BLIZZARD!

    Then we get a shit fest known as Call of Duty. Yeah, I dont think so.

    And Blizzard doesnt do DLC. Everything they do comes in the form of a patch. Ive never had to pay for a patch thats not an expansion from them and even then, im really only paying $40 for a cd key. Because everyone downloads the expansions they just arent accessible to you until you enter in a cd key.

    Just love how people read their own thing with things like this. "oh there isnt going to be pvp straight away? so youre going to release it months later? Sounds like DLC that im going to have to pay for even though you said PATCH."

    People get their panties in a knot too fast when they read something that they dont like.

    I will be one of them, I'm not buy half a game, same reason I didn't buy SC2.

    It's not about don't like, I will not accept paying $60 for HALF OF A GAME! It's beyond unacceptable FUCK BLIZZARD!

    RAGE is a prime example of what NOT to do for game content. Great game that ended like "Oh S#!t its Friday 4:59pm! Hit save and lets call it a game! Beers on me."

    I disagree, devs are doing bull crap like this more and more because they know people will bend over and accept it. If people raged more and accepted less half baked games we might get some decent content on the PC again.

    I completely agree with you. I love how people put on their tin foil hats and get all pissed off about something that was never even said. I hate nothing more than when people assume stuff like that.

    @[H]@RD5TUFF
    Honestly, I take all of the stuff you are saying with a grain of salt. Anyone with that much hate towards something should be disregarded. You are acting like they took your first born and burned down your house. Clearly you know nothing of Blizzard.

    Bethesda seems to be doing just fine. I'm sure there will be DLC, but Skyrim is pretty damned awesome without it. They also allow modding. Maybe you should rethink PC gaming because you seem to have very little knowledge of it. What one or two companies do does not shape the entire culture of PC gaming.

    Your free to disagree all you wish, but not to invalidate. I know much of blizzard, as I have played EVERY title they have made, I am not acting in any manner other than an extremely angry customer, who god forbid expects value and a complete game for his money. . .:twitch::eek:

    I harbor no hatred, just anger, you seem all to eager to accuse others of ignorance, when you yourself spew nothing but. That said you are free to your opinions, but perhaps you should judge yourself more and others less.

    I am angry at blizzard for the unmitigated gawl to peddle half finished games at the price of full games. The price should reflect the content level! People will continue to pirate their games, and I hope it ends them.
