You guys should have been around at the beginning of Age of Conan. I was on their forums and you want to talk about bastardizing a game and making the entire user base feel it was their fault?

Ugh.

I know Blizzard is better than that.

I think I'll have to dig up a lot of old threads I have saved, and emails.

Blizzard is no better.

Played through with the barbarian, now I've gone over to the monk. She seems to be kicking some undead ass.

Well I downloaded and installed the beta, gotta say that I am loving the monk.

My plan is to play a support style monk (heals, and auras) with some dps provided I'm playing with others.

Agreed, Diablo 3 is easily not Duke Nukem Forever.

Gametrailers made the point that Blizzard is one of the few game studios that has the budget to scrap large portions of their game designs to redo them during development. I thought this was interesting - how many other games are out there that the devs would have liked to revamp, but couldn't?

A conundrum, what does the Dr. name his witchdoctor, WhichDoctor of course...

OK that was the easiest class by far (of 3 played anyway). Granted I've been investing gold in training my blacksmith and saving up magic weapons to salvage to craft my own since I found that feature existed after finishing the beta with the barbarian, but still, 7h40m to about 2.5h with the WD... And enemies seemed a LOT weaker using the WD, although when swarmed I often ran out of mana - or so it said, the ball looked full - probably a bug.

Or rather, how many games have we heard of that were in dire need of a revamp and ended up getting scrapped?

Despite delays, I'm glad to see Blizz is acknowledging the errors and bugs and attempting to polish this gem up real nice before it sees the light of day. And hopefully it'll go the route of Diablo 2 - a few patches shortly after release to finalize the issues, and constant upgrades and changes over the years to add more depth to the game. I've already got funds set aside for the first expansion :P
