Creating good random map generators is a difficult task in video games, and something we’ve seen done with relative success in all of the Diablo games.

Jay Wilson’s Twitter Feed RemovedPosted 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.
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.
