The Diablo 3 Podcast #92: D3 Year One — The Diablo Community

Posted 15 May 2013 by

Flux, Neinball, and Wolfpaq discuss the Diablo community and speculate on why passions often run so high, and why so many self-professed “haters” stick around to complain and troll, rather than moving on with their lives.

This is the second half of the show begun with TDP #91, but you need not listen to that one first since the topics are entirely separate between the shows.

Approximate segment starting times:

  • 0:10 — Intro and Diablo 3 community overview.
  • 4:40 — Is the Diablo 3 community really that much more negative than other gaming communities? Why do people who claim not to like Diablo 3 stick around to troll people who do play it and to say that every other upcoming ARPG will be 10x better? Why does this not occur with WoW and Starcraft, even in the downtimes for those games? Is it a testimony to the enduring enjoyment (and rose-tinted glasses) of Diablo 2?
  • 12:00 — Diablo 3 didn’t live up to impossibly-high expectations? Would Diablo 2.5 have been more popular? An update rather than a full sequel?
  • 20:10 — Expectations for upcoming changes to Diablo 3? Anything big coming up before the expansion adds massive content and changes everything?
  • 25:00 — Creepy unicorn sound effects.
