There are still plenty of people that jump in and play the game when the ladder resets… In the magnitude of millions according to Rod Fergusson. If there’s one thing about a large number of Diablo fans, they are devoted to the game they love. Even Diablo 2 which is 23 years old is still going strong with ladder resets… It will be a long while before this game dies out.
I dont group in D3, but D4 has zero global social features so it feels like a ghost town anyway. Might as well play a fun game, I will be back to D3 for the season for sure, since D4 is extremely unfun and a big letdown.
Diablo 3 will have about 100,000 at the start of the season soon.
Diablo 4 is a disaster and the dev’s think it’s the fault of players expecting too much. I’ve never in my life seen a bigger flop than D4 and the devs dont even play it or know anything about games or gamers.
The current season ends today on the 10th (sorry to all those who don’t make mistakes), so it will be fairly dead until the next season starts (we are guessing next Fri). Once the new season starts the game will be quite active.
I get what he’s saying though. If you look under their name, it literally says “customer support”. Yes, they are not employees but that misnomer can and has easily given people the wrong impression of someone’s purpose. It’s reasonable for anyone who doesn’t know better to see the “customer support” and think “this person is an employee” or “this person must know what they’re talking about”. Not everyone knows that they’re not useful. One of the many reasons that program should have been scrapped a long time ago.
I dont think D4 is anyone’s competition. D3 prob will have more active users on season launch lol. I had high hopes for D4, turns out its just soulless is the best way to describe it. D3 is more fun, which is interesting given there’s less activities then d4. Maybe b/c each activity in D3 is rewarding in many ways.
