    Reduced Diablo, now with less pvp!

    looks like Blizz was right about skipping pvp for a quicker release. If we go by the vote and project that as a population statistic, nearly 70% of people don't care enough to want pvp at release. Carebears ftw! :

    Carebears?

    1. Who cares if PvP is not in at release when it should be in within 2-3 months after?
    2. Diablo has always been a PvM hack and slash game with a little pvp off to the side. D3 will be a PvM hack and slash game with a little pvp off to the side. I dont see the issue. Its not and will never be an esport. If people want esports, they should play something else. If they want to play a really good PvM game with a great core story that its built on with some fun PvP off to the side, then this will be a great game.

    I shouldnt even be responding to this thread since all it does it get people arguing again about a pointless topic. I cant wait for release so people can play and stop over thinking about what this game is/should be.

    Why is it carebear to want the most fun version of pvp possible? Op when you insult a large swath of people like that you only reinforce that your childish behavior need not be taken seriously.

    Re: Reduced Diablo, now with less pvp!

    What's the point of this thread?

    Weren't arenas "carebear" anyways? So now it's "carebear" again now that they're taking it away to make it better?

    I have a sneaking suspicion that people who use the word "carebear" for their critcism harbor a deep seated passion for the cuddly vibrant ursidae. Perhaps even a guilty pleasure on the matter.

    I know many PvE lovers who refer to themselves as carebears. I don't know if the OP's intention was to use it as a pejorative.

    I'm a carebear as I never played PvP in Diablo 2 and probably won't in D3. Carebear is just someone who doesn't much like PvP in RPGs. I take no offence from it.

    Based on my intuitive sense of the OP, it really seemed like this thread was meant as criticism for the lack of PvP and using "carebear" in a derogatory manner. It's just that my experience with the term being used on forums has been primarily negative. I could just be wrong about the OP, of course.

    I just hold contempt for those that use "carebear" for the foundation of their reasoning. Personally, I just want everybody to have a good time when they're playing the game. I've never really equated the term directly to PvP, but more specifically as the avenues for grieving other players (which generally incorporates PvP, but it not exclusive to it).

    I enjoy both PvP more than PvE - I think I enjoy D3's symbiotic dynamic between the two the most (which is why I don't like other PvP games). D2 was the first game that had PvP that I really enjoyed and I have high hopes for it in D3.

    Perhaps I just feel "carebear" is just a stereotype of the ethereal domain.
