Blizzard Introduces Diablo 3 Theorycraft ThursdaysPosted 18 Apr 2014 by
Blizzard is going to start featuring a new build every week, with discussion of why it works, what makes it cool and fun, what gear it requires, and so forth, and they’re calling it Diablo 3 Theorycraft Thursdays.
The fun doesn’t stop there, though. Every four weeks, we’ll throw up a poll and have the community vote on their favorite featured builds from the past month. The player whose build nets the most votes will have an opportunity to join a few Blizzard employees in-game and showcase their build LIVE on our official Diablo Twitch.tv channel!
How to Participate:
Interested? Awesome! To participate, just send an e-mail to TheorycraftThursday@blizzard.com with the following information:
We’re eager to see the creativity of our community, and we’re even more excited about getting the chance to hang out and play alongside you. So get your submissions in and we’ll see you May 1!
This sounds like a good way to publicize some new builds and play styles, hopefully going beyond the obvious cookie cutter stuff. And a good way to draw Blizzard’s dev/balancing attention to problems with some classes or items. My one concern is that we might not get enough attention on Hardcore builds, since I don’t know if the Bliz guys ready for the stream will have HC chars that can hack the hard stuff. I had to go softcore for the live stream I did during the beta since they didn’t have Hardcore chars available (nor were the other fans scheduled to be on the stream Hardcore-capable).
Any of you guys planning to put your character and build forth in this Theorycrafting Thursday?
