New Defensive Legendary Gems: Still Useless?
Along with Ancient Items and a bunch of new legendary items/affixes, at Blizzcon the devs revealed two new legendary gems, coming soon in Patch 2.12.

Jay Wilson’s Twitter Feed Removed

Posted 17 Dec 2012 by

Many of you may follow Jay Wilson’s Twitter feed for occasional updates on the game but today Jay’s @Angryrobotics Twitter account has vanished.

Personal Twitter accounts of Blizzard employees are private accounts and are not channels for “official” news and opinion. They are private, but sometimes Jay would post an update on certain topics to try and get some more info out to the community.

For the past few months the occasional bits of Diablo 3 news would come through from Jay. Lately Jay has been Tweeting about the status of PvP to try and keep us in the loop  outside of the “official” blogs and Twitter which I have to say has been nice to see.

Unfortunately every time he tweeted a torrent of abusive responses and personal attacks were unloaded on him and I would guess this is the reasoning behind withdrawing himself from Twitter.

A few days ago Blizzard posted a response to a thread on the official forums regarding Blizzard and Jay’s interaction with the Diablo 3 community.

“That’s totally understandable. We do want to update players on PvP once all the details are finalized. We’re not at that point yet, but Jay understands that it sucks to wait and has been trying to bridge that gap via direct updates on Twitter. He’s a good dude and really cares this community, despite so many statements to the contrary. =/”

Many players have been frustrated with a lack of communication since the game launched, sometimes warranted, sometimes not. Things do seem to be looking brighter and CM Lylirra has been chipping in responding more where she can and it’s this kind of pro-active community interaction that’s needed while we continue to wait for major updates.

Thanks to Forge who posted this in the general forum.
