This is Blizzard on a 10 year old game we're talking about here.
They promised a patch to tie Diablo II in with Diablo III. What happened? They deleted EVERY post of theirs hinting at such a patch, and when questioned about it around the time of the wipe, EVERY thread that was questioning said patch was nuked within 2 hours. Not just the single post, THE ENTIRE THREAD. Even if a post inside the thread mentioned it off-hand, the entire thread was nuked off of the face of the forum.
What does that lead me to believe? They scrapped their "final patch" and removed all traces of it, then nuked everyone's posts in hopes people would eventually forget about it.
If this is truly as bad as you make it sound, then wow... atheist god that's weak!
Pathetic Blizzard. Thanks for not giving a flying fawk!
