    regardless of DLC or Patch, the fact is they should have it ready at once. I never liked pvp and won't likely play this one, but the fact that the game is coming out half done to meet a deadline is very UNblizzard, and makes me even less hopeful for this sequel.

    clearly you know nothing of Activision.

    Your entire post is full of ridicule and hypocrisy. I as well have played EVERY Blizzard game to date and have never once felt cheated. Tell me, when was the last time they released a DLC? That's right, never. Patches? Sure. Expansions? Sure. Both of which have been part of PC gaming for a LONG time. So please, take the time to re-evaluate yourself.

    digi, I know more than enough about Activision/Kotick and their shittiness.

    Sorry Tatty, that post didn't come to mind until a few minutes later :laugh:

    Then you didn't pay much attention to SC2, as it's missing 2/3 of the single player story. A "patch" is technically DLC. FAIL much ?

    Just the opposite, I purchased Diablo 2, Warcraft 3 and Starcraft plus all expansions and never once felt I didn't get my moneys worth. In fact they still update and fully support games that are 15 years old, I love them for that.

    PVP is not the main focus of D3 but will be a welcome addition, WOW did not release with battlegrounds but you did world pvp instead. I played on sargeras and Southshore vs. Tauren Mill was the best pvp area ever :p.

    I think they are making these decisions to get the game out relatively "soon". The co-op will be so much fun I'll wait for the polished PvP system.

    Wow calm the fuck down. Its only half a game for a month or so. Besides, who the hell is going to be pvping at level 1? Get over yourself. Also, they counted give two shits for a fuck about you not buying their game.

    Well put :) I just think someone's a little butthurt.

    I love how you change your tune. You don't pay for patches. Ever. DLC? Sure, sometimes it's free. Typically, you have to pay.

    Youll end up getting the full game for free in the very near future. What is so hard to comprehend about that? So youll end up paying for the full game anyway.

    Lol. Ok now youre trolling or you really are that ignorant. You dont pay for patches. If you have ever paid for a patch, then you need to find a way to get a refund. So you sir, FAIL hard.

    Don't waste your time arguing with him, you'll have a better chance yelling at the wall closest to you.

    Diablo is, fundamentally, not a PvP game. That has always just been an addition (and sometimes hack) to it, not the main point. Battlenet is basically an add-on to a Diablo game. The pure game is not about killing other players. Maybe some of you aren't old enough to know what the Diablo games are about, and the tradition of gaming prior to everything being about multiplayer 'murder'.

    This. Story and treasure hunting were the best part of the Diablo series.

    Geeze what's all this pointless rage about? So Diablo III is going to be released sooner missing a very small part of the game, so what? It's not like they have axed the feature altogether...

    DIII isn't a CoD game and there won't be a DLC for a major feature such as PVP. The patch will be released in due course and we will get to play D3 at the announced release day without a buggy, half-baked PVP system. I really don't see what the problem is....

    This statement is full of so much fail I don't even know where to begin....

    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 :(

    Exactly, but prepare to called a hypocrite for having the audasity to use logic and point that out. I have just given up attempting to explain my position, as the saying goes never argue with an idiot they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!:D

    Who says it won't? Sure, they aren't releasing the pvp aspect at launch, but the single player may well be worth more than $60 in terms of content level. We won't know until reviews start coming out.

    yeah i don't care so much about the price part , as the rest will be free when it's ready - what i don't like is that it's an action that screams "we want money now" which sounds like activision, not blizzard.

    Indeed, you appear to be quite the expert. Blizzard have always been known for their patches, free ones at that, hell I remember D2 before the synergy system was added, changed things dramatically; dark times before that was released.

    Wait a sec. Let me ask something here..isn't this D3 supposed to be online-only, much like WoW?

    Is that how the PvP stuff works? I don't fully understand.

    And if that's the case, then delay of PvP servers, well, makes sense to me. Heck, if htere's monthly fees on this, I'm nto gonna buy anyway, so really, that is the critical peice of info I need, and the rest is just idle chatter until that info comes.

    It is going to be online only just like WoW to help prevent the hackerfest that is known as Diablo 2.

    What i dont understand is how people are flying off the handle about a game that is mainly single-player. As for the monthly fees, Im unsure.
