    Thumbs down Why does Blizzard not care about D2 anymore?

    They still sell this game and make money off it. It's still enjoyed by tens of thousands of people world wide and spreads good will towards the company. D3 sold as much as it did because of the fan following this game created. Couldn't they find one programmer to work on this game part time, for basic things like communication about the date of ladder resets, or to fully test and put through the increased stash size patch? Or get rid of the TOS breaking spam bots? Or fix bugs with skills that have been in game from day one? (Fend still broken, for instance).

    the amount of money and brand recognition this game has produced for Blizzard, and this is how they treat it, how they treat us now? Just because it's older and they've got 'hot' new projects, does that mean it should be completely abandoned other than keeping the servers on?

    I would PAY Blizzard full price for another expansion to this beloved game, or even for just a new sizable patch. And I think millions of other people would too. Brilliant gameplay and itemization never gets old. Reminds me a little bit of SquareEnix letting their beloved old franchises fade into obscurity without sequels or remakes that their fans are dying for. They too moved onto new games that lost the flavor of the old and people don't like nearly as much. They built their massive following on the greatness of their old games, and then abandoned the concepts and methods that made them great.

    NO

    NONONONONONONONONONONONONO

    The reason I play D2 is because it is a FINISHED PRODUCT. Its because they DON'T have a programmer on staff constantly pushing changes. That's the reason I quit WoW.

    Give me a completed game with some bugs over a never-finished game with bugs that constantly gets redesigned and tweaked.

    If they ever released another patch for this game, I would quit.

    Really?

    Even though half of the skills are inconsistent with what they do and claim they do, various bonus don't work and the char screen is wrong about most things?

    D2 is great but still has countless bugs, could use quite an update. I don't think they still make money out of it.
    Doubt they will ever invest in D2 again , wouldn't look good on them with D3 already around. Still D3 has quite some potential.

    Yes because I want a stable game. I don't have a lot of time to play, and I don't want to spend most of that time relearning gameplay mechanics constantly because some developer keeps pushing changes.

    If you want constant changes, Blizzard has that on tap -- go play WoW. If you want a stable game, play D2.

    I don't think he's asking for constant upgrades and changes, but simply someone figuring out the stash issue, maybe a key to transfer items..stuff like that. A utility patch of sorts

    No, he asked for another full expansion.

    anyway, no need for an xpack, but some sort of patch would be useful.

    Re: Why does Blizzard not care about D2 anymore?

    I love Diablo 2 too, but from an optimistic point of view I much rather see them not update Diablo 2 because that means they are not heading in the right direction, preserving old games is fine, like keeping the servers alive. But focusing on old games mean they aren't going head strong into the future.

    We play Diablo 2 because we already love it, and don't want it to change. There are always mods if you want something different out of Diablo 2
