I'm guessing that Diablo 3 WILL be pay to play.

That's fine. Feel free to discuss the merits/lack of Pay2Play (as if we don't know how people think on that topic already). I'll leave this open in case someone finds a real announcement.
Keep it civil and no threadcrapping.

@Ford : You got a link to that game thread you speak of? Can't seem to find it.

Hmm, it wasn't where I thought it would be either. Anyway, the game is capable of simulating everything from the universe all the way down to single-celled organisms. Think Spore done right.

Bobby Kotick has announced that Pay to play is the way they are going.
:laugh::laugh::laugh:
Omg that makes me laugh so hard, this is what I been saying the entire time, and exactly what I said in the other thread, and someone asked how our best friend Bobby would get involved, I WARNED YOU ALL :mad:

But I see that there's issue with the quote, so I hope it's not true. I have lost a lot of faith in Blizzard since Bobby stepped in, I don't understand why that guy hasn't been canned. Lets just hope they actualy do put out a good game.

@Ford is this the game that folds/crunchs using the players reflex for some of the simulations that can't quite be done via either f@h or WCG?

That's the objective. It also has virtually limitless applications and scope.

I don't think it will be pay to play. If anything they'll probably do something along the lines of what they did for Starcraft 2, as in you'll have to buy the other classes, or a addon for multiplayer or something.

I really hope they don't though...

The announcement was made up, written by myself. I wanted to see how everyone would react to that news.

It was an successful psychological experiment!






Sorry for the epic trolls and thanks for the lols. :)

Flamebait, intentionally setting up a thread for trolling.. spam?

Mods I've gotten infraction points for stuff much less disruptive then this

@ShiBDiB I haven't insulted any members, if you are taking it personal then sorry.

That aside if the mods would like to turn this into a disscussion about Diablo 3 being pay to play I would have no problem. If a mod would be so king to change the title to: "Will Diablo 3 be pay to play?" that would be cool.
