Correct. But Blizzard has an incredible knack for turning these folks into hardcore addicts like us forum trash. They might come in green, but they become one of us pretty quickly. They're gonna be more upset about broken followers than we are, b/c they won't realize that they're designed to fail until later.
That is an interesting point. What will the readability be to tell players (other then us who hang on to every qoute) that the follower you had the whole game, is now useless when you increase difficulty and will never be useful again?
I can see tons of threads where players are asking "How to keep follower alive?".
