I’ve finally had the opportunity to sink my teeth into Diablo III, and completed normal mode last night. Not a great feat, I know, but I’m having a blast, so I don’t care. I’m looking forward to it getting more difficult, I’m looking forward to the secret level, more co-op and more items. In short, it’s a game I look forward to playing every day, I’m excited when I start up the game, and I have so much fun while playing, not to mention the fact that I get to play with old friends that I probably wouldn’t see as much of otherwise.
I know there are complaints about later difficulties and gear balancing and all that, but I’ve not experienced it myself yet, so I don’t feel that It’s my place to comment on those issues.
So right now, there’s only one problem.
I visit the official Blizzard site for Diablo III fairly often; to get news about the game, look at the guides, and to get a feel for what’s going on in the community. But I’m going to stop the latter. In fact, I’ll probably take all of my business elsewhere, and that’s in no part due to Blizzard or any of its employees.
I am so sick of the fanbase. Regardless of the region (EU or US) they are horrible, whiny ungrateful little shits. Sure, there are exceptions, and I commend them for trying. But the fact of the matter is that they are alone in the dark, pitted against hordes and hordes of rabid opponents. Sounds familiar? Unfortunately these gems of common sense and tact do not possess nephalem powers, and can’t possibly hold the fort agains the aforementioned hordes.
So I’m going. Bye battle.net. Hello Diablofans.
