I thought it was very constructive criticism of the fact that they aren't addressing real issues. :) (My son got a kick out of the fact that I was banned / suspended.... ;) ).

If you're still playing doc, I guess you'll have to keep us informed of any real improvements to the game, :)

I laugh because I keep trying to like, no love this game, and just like monkeys, they keep flinging shit at me, I just logged in to check my auctions, and it wouldn't let me in FFS, and my auctions, what's the point, I put up decent crap I can't use for it's in game sale price, and I don't even get a bid, though it seems the bots can sell crap, or at least bid it up well beyond reason, some of it's even better than the crap that has a minimum bid of 3bazzzilion ffs, nobodies playing this anymore. Last night was a total lag fest, tonight wasn't much better.

I'm sticking with my "The Producers / Hitler in Springtime" theory. They can't seriously be this incompentent, there must be another reason for the fiasco.

The auction house isn't really well set up, they should have copied features from ebay (or probably other in game auction houses). You can't filter by bid, you can't "watch" and item without putting a bid on it and the search is too limited. You should be able to search for more than 3 attributes.

Turns out Diablo 3 is so frustrating it can kill you.

Quote:
An 18-year-old Taiwanese man was pronounced dead earlier this week after he collapsed following a 40-hour marathon playing the Diablo III video game at an internet cafe, the United Daily News broadsheet reported.



A report from The Australian claims the teenager, known so far only by his surname Chuang, booked his own room at an internet cafe in Tainan in southern Taiwan on July 13, where he started playing the popular game Diablo III. Two days later Chuang was found asleep on a table in the same room. Shortly after he was awoken by the attendant who discovered him, he reportedly stood up, took a few steps, and then collapsed, according to The Australian. The attendant then called an ambulance, which rushed him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The report claims that Chuang hadn't eaten during his two-day gaming session, adding that local police believe his death could be the result of cardiovascular issues resulting from "long hours in a sedentary position." However, autopsy results have yet to be released.

Amazingly, Taiwan saw a similar story roughly six months ago, when "a man in New Taipei was found dead, slumped in a chair facing a computer with his arms still reaching out for the keyboard after playing [an undisclosed video game] for 23 hours," according to The Australian.

"The cause of death was reported as cardiac arrest," the report adds.

Diablo III, incidentally, is massively popular. After its May release, Diablo III broke the record earlier this year for fastest-selling PC game of all time, selling more than 3.5 million copies in its first 24 hours on the market.

Heh... not playing the game any more, but still having fun watching the forums over there.... interesting twist in that I'm starting to see "fanboi" posts from posters who obviously don't have english as their first language (the posts read like poorly translated human spam bots we get here from time to time)... is it possible that the overseas botters are attempting to do damage control to protect their investment? :)
