I was mostly f2p since before the original release, and I stop playing for long periods of time. I would occasionally buy something cheap, like the new player packs when they offered those. Recently I started playing again, and Warlock has always been my favorite class to play. So I bought the expansion set for once, got my first alternate art that wasn’t free for a hero. I had really enjoyed the scholomance expansion so far. I did not know that this Old Gods expansions was only like a third of an expansion, that I wouldn’t definitely be able to get an Old God legendary, and that they were also making these radical changes to the game. I was completely rooked by Blizzard.
I still play Diablo 3 all the time, but I will definitely, absolutely remember this experience. I was probably going to be in the early purchase category for Diablo 4, but now I will not trust them at all, and I will wait to see what happens. Blizzard cannot be trusted any longer, and is now in the hall of fame of companies who’ve not valued the customers they have at the level those customers like to play. Such as EA, Bethesda (Fallout76 anyone?), all those companies that began this horrible trend of getting people to prepay for stuff that ends up being crap. Good work Blizzard, on destroying your decent reputation and joining all the others that have ruined their own player base this way.
