I feel that this website is becoming the last great beacon of Diablo 3 hope. Honestly, this game has been a total let down from my initial expectations. It's not a total loss, as the gameplay still has some redeeming qualities, the real money auction house is epic, and the promise of ranked pvp sounds perfect. What this game really needs, however, is less hyped up hope and more delivered promises. The latest announcement on cancelled death match really hurt Diablo 3. Now they have to get a new director for the game, and I'm not sure if the pvp will be done in the next 6 months.
The longer Blizzard waits, the more people leave this game. You can see the decline in most player driven websites already. I would not be surprised if some of the biggest sites have seen their traffic cut by 80% (this blog has). What makes me believe that this website is the last great bastion of hope for Diablo 3? The simple fact that we're still having fun, and doing it in style. Thanks to the GAH and especially the RMAH, there are custom goals we can set for ourselves and a community at this website to share them with.
Without those two key elements (goals and community), I believe that every last one of the members of this site would have quit the game prematurely. Let's keep the community strong and work to create new goals for our members. Then, when Diablo 3 has the new pvp system and droves of people return to the game, we'll be ready for them.
