Well, this is it, the make or break moment for Diablo 3, announcement of the first expansion. It's been 15 months since release, and it should be very evident by now to the devs, what's ailing D3. Will we finally get the features this game badly needs (better itemization, item customization, useful crafting, player controlled char development, zero AH dependency, more "open world," better quests, better social features, more randomization)? Or will we get more of the same, further incentivisation of the Ahs? If I was a betting man, I'm gonna go with the latter. But we'll see, I still have a tiny bit of hope.
