We know there was an early ETA of April of '09, which has come and gone... OK that's fine, we can understand delays. Unfortunately we've been virtually left in the dark as far as progress. We've heard nothing other than a couple of breadcrumbs and a mention of higher priorities over this patch at one point. (I think I can note the breadcrumbs out with a set of magnetic refrigerator letters) We understand that Diablo II is a ten year old game and are very surprised that you're even bothering releasing a patch at all. All we ask is that you try and provide a little bit more information.
I know I'm anxious to play the new patch, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this post. I also realize that you may be holding back the information for it to be a surprise. Hey, the players going to beta test it anyway, why not let the faucet leak a bit as far as basic information? I feel that I'm speaking for a rather large number of people. New content is (almost always) a plus, and <almost> worth the rush. :)
