    No, blizzard seems worse to me, when they allow such piece of shit to be a "lead" of anything.

    No big surprise about the heavy handed moderation. They don't really need any kind of justification. I once posted 'Nerf Warriors' in response to one of the WoW developers quotes and received a week long ban.

    Fuck that loser. Fuck him for giving us Diablo 3 beta for $60. The game needed about another year of work, except they released it as a beta and are slowly patching in the things that should have been there from day one.

    Followed promptly by ego-less and enlightened Jay Wilson's War&Peace-sized post about himself and his excuses. It will make you cry, it will make you laugh, it will be an exhilarating rollercoaster that will force you to look deeply inside yourself, but in the end, having finished reading all that, you will be a better person.

    Almost as good as Jay Wilson himself.

    So what is Blizzards END OF RINE gonna be? I'd go with "You're walking on THIN ICE!" Get it? BECAUSE THEIR NAME IS BLIZZARD!

    And and if the mod is Asian we could all go "ROUR ARE RALKING ON RIN RICE!"

    It got really quiet all of a sudden...

    Childish insults followed by a cringe-worthy "apology", and a straight-out admission that the game has "major problems", even that "sales mean nothing", from the *lead designer* of a game by *Blizzard Entertainment*.
    :what:
    I thought Blizzard had only become money-hungry soulless customer-enslaving profit-maximizers. I had no idea it was this bad.

    Blizzard adopted the Ubi$oft model of treating their customers. Brilliant. :salute:
    Those slimy scumbags, why do they bitch so much? Why can't they just shut up and give us their money. Do we really need them? Fuck those losers.

    What a disgusting man-child. I mean it. I feel bad for him and I hope and pray that he re-evaluates what is important in his life - namely his family and wife over some cut-rate APRG.


    Now PST2 on the other hand...

    I don't get it - the original Blizzard North's guy's criticism was pretty tame in the first place - bascially "I would have done things differently". There must be something wrong with you if you can't take that on the chin, but I guess we are talking about someone that despatched his pregnant wife interstate to play a video game for a week and isn't bright enough to think before hitting enter.

    I don't care about Blizzard, this guy, or D3 but the crying over one silly coment of 'fuck you loser' is hilarious. Though I never even ehard that this was a meme or about this issue til this thread.

    The only losers are the pieces of shitwho feel the need to cry over someone saying something liek this to someone else.

    I agree he shouldn't have apologized at all since he did nothing worth apologizing for.

    Fuck you, losers. :D

    meh, I probably shouldn't have said cut-rate. The game took 11 years and God knows how much money. I don't think that can qualify as cut-rate.

    My original point that he is a a terrible person for ditching his pregnant wife and work for a week to play Diablo 2 still stands.

    O RLY? Pregant wives are now cripples that need to be babysat 24/7?

    Yet, somehow pregnant women somehow manage to have babies just fine with the father over seas fighting wars, going on long business trips, and a host of other things.

    I don't know how his relationship with his wife really is (neither do anyone blasting him for it) but I doubt she was a complete invalid. Or are you the type of person who feel women are incapable of taking care of themselves? Wow.

    I'm sure she managed to survive just fine.

    Mountain out of a molehill just so the internet gangz can feel proud bashing someone for such a trivial thing that she probably long forgot (depending on how their relationship is now).

    The Internet. The palce where people feel self righteous enough to judge others over such silly garabge without knowing anything about the situation. Not to mention the whole hyperbole bullshit it runs on.

    OMG THis guy is a fukkkin' evil person because he said or did something you disapproved of. L0LZ

    p.s. i'M GUILTY OF IT TOO SO IT'S ALL KEWL.

    One can only hope that this whole thing isn't over yet. Shit's hilarious.

    Also, I'm glad that even though I haven't touched D3 for about 2 months now, and that I own neither a facebook nor a twitter account, my beloved codex still manages to deliver all this drama. Didn't even hear about the whole situation before. I love you codex.

    Yeah, sending your wife away so you can play Diablo 2 is obviously the same as fighting a war. :lol:

    Truly, it's little moments like this that allow you to really see someone's character. It's sort of like how if you're on a date and the girl you're with is being a bitch to the server, she almost certainly sucks as a person. I'm not surprised that a man who makes an entitled, supremely arrogant response to a series of innocuous comments (said to the guy he and his team basically owe their jobs to) would end up sucking horribly as a human being.

    It is revolting how this notpology is directed towards fans and people on the internet and not to the person he insulted (for the offense of criticising a game he worked on).

    The gaming industry is really pathetic.

    The gestapo moderation on the Blizz boards is mind-boggling, what the fuck.
