Surprised that people don’t like the whole real money auction house, even if it offers a solution to the RMT in Diablo 2, are concerned because they see it as a pay to win scenario, or legitimizing the RMT trade?
Surprised that people who have found the always on DRM that Ubisoft implemented didn’t really work all that well, or who may not have reliable internet connections, are miffed?
Surprised that the loyal community of fans who have extended the longevity of Diablo 2 through mods aren’t happy that they won’t be able to do the same with Diablo 3?
I don’t know about you, but I’m less and less surprised by anything I see on the web these days. Jaded? Perhaps. Perhaps, I’ve seen these sort of reactions before to similar announcements by other devs.
The same things were said about Assassins Creed and Settlers when Ubisoft announced that they would always have to be connected to the Internet. With some gamers unable to play the game they paid for due to problems with the servers, the critics were proved right. That Blizzards potential customers are concerned about the same thing happening doesn’t really surprise anyone, does it?
