Hey Blizzard, What the Hell?


Hi Blizzard,

We’ve known each other for a long time. I met you back in 1994 when I got this little game called Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. Ever since, I bought every game that you’ve made. I don’t even read the reviews, I know they’ll be good. But I need to ask you something. What the hell are you doing?

Diablo 3 is a pretty good game but you’re doing a great job pissing people off.

The real money auction house was delayed at release but honestly I don’t care, I don’t use that anyway.

Your DRM is crap. I was playing the single player game and got shut down for the night because of your server issues. This cost me progress and some good loot. I understand having to be connected to the server for multiplayer games but why the hell do I constantly need a server connection to play the single player version.

This issue has been so bad, I hear you’re offering refunds to people in South Korea because they can’t play the game. Of all places man, how can you not have anticipated a huge reaction from them. C’mon, you see how crazy Starcraft is there.

And the latest, your new patch puts a 72-hour demo lock on recently downloaded digital versions of the game. So people are stuck with a level 13 cap and can’t play past the Skeleton King. On top of this, they can’t post in public chat, drop items for other players, visit the auction house, or join public games. I know you said this is to protect people against piracy and whatnot but damn man, a constant server connection and 72 hour lock? There’s a point where your “protecting” is ruining the experience for us honest people.

Sorry, I had to get that off my chest. I have faith that you’ll get all this stuff ironed out eventually. We good now? Wanna hug it out?
