Im so dissapointed, lets hope they still have something in the back they dont show us now.

I think after backlash against Diablo Immortal they will just shut down the entire Diablo division because "Screw it! And all of you too"

I don't get why so much upset / sad reactions everywhere. It seems something went missed by everyone: "partnered with Netease" so D Imortal was not made in house at Blizzard. Yet they still hired tons of heads in the head quarter!

Having this in mind D 2.5 sound like a side project and the big one will be heard of next year(or later)!

That also mean that the Diablo Franchise is super active: D3 switch, D Imortal, Something else!

 

Edit: blizzard seem to be announcing their games 1 year in advance max now so will see next year!

D3 on switch is just a dead game on a new platform. Already here you could see that they were giving up.
Now launching 2.5 as a mobile platform proves it. 

So disappointed.

Oh man, that silence when they announced it and like/dislike ratio on trailer. It appears to be made mainly for Chinese market, judging by their partner company (Netease, a mobile game developer studio from China).

That does not make an exuse for showing the audience that they do not even care to pronunce their own flippin' character's names correctly and also that their hyped grand Diablo announcement this year was just a goddamn mobile game. Not even a slight hint towards D2 remaster, D3 DLC or literally ANYTHING ELSE.

So you talked to the head of Diablo development to confirm this? Or is this just your own bias because you're upset that you let your own hype disappoint you?

This indeed is a fair point.

While the PR they did back in Aug made a mess and while I think their could have done the opening better. all of this sound like they know more but can't tell creating a disconnect with the community.

Well anyway twill not stop me playing the next D3 season

I already see how it goes from now on. "Diablo division is not making any money? Check. Fans are pissed beyond any limit? Check. Fans are not throwing money at us because they are pissed at Diablo Division? DOUBLE CHECKED. TRASH IT!"

Aren't you forgetting that Activision is running the Blizzard now? And that if they see that something (Which is literally ANYTHING) is not giving them any kind of profit they will shut it down without a second thought? And Diablo division is literally running on a thin ice with the anvil in their flippin' arms. If they don't make up for their fiasco at this year's Blizzcon they are gone.

Right, like Blizzard is going to throw away Diablo 4, which will most likely be announced next year. Quit claiming the sky is falling when it isn't. Activision has no say in what departments are going to go for Blizzard. If Activision did, the Classics division would of been gone. But since it isn't, my point stands. Stop whining because your own hype lead you to disappointment.

So it's MY fault that i've waited 6 years for a new diablo game and not a cheap mobile cash-grab? Yeah right i am such an idiot i shoudn't know what I want - Blizzard can literally TELL ME what i want and give it to me. SILLY ME!
For real though you should stop your bootlicking right now. You are embarassing yourself.

I think you are missing the key point, that the original Diablo games were never made by the Blizzard you know. Diablo 1 & 2 were produced by a company called Blizzard North, which essentially dissolved around 2005, and then the mother company ended up owning the rights to Diablo franchise without any of the people who worked on it. I think this showed in Diablo 3 and it will show in every new things they will develop. Or they will sell the rights to instead of developing it themselves like in this case.
Still I think it's totally rightful for fans to throw rude words at Blizz in this case for selling the rights to the Chinese, but from a business standpoint it's an absolutely legitimate decision. Netease probably pays a shitload of money for the Diablo name.

Yes, it's your fault that you let your own hype disappoint you when you know good games take time to make.

And yet you still seemingly ignore the fact that they said there are projects they are not ready to announce yet. But go on, keep being ignorant of the facts and keep making your own assumptions based from nothing.

This is just so sad. This announce like a funeral of one big part of my childhood (D1-2). I allways loved everything about Diablo and was a huge fan of the world, but they now destroyed my all dreams about the sequel of this franchise. Feels like end of the franchise for me.

I can't say I'm not surprised. After many years of disappointing reveals and news, I have to say this is the saddest reveal of them all. From a business perspective it's a great idea, but to the fans who literally played Diablo 3 for years it's the same shit but different format. No way I'm playing Diablo 3 on mobile, I'm already burned out on the PC version. 

R.I.P Diablo franchise. You were fun before you were beat to death by multiple imports.

      Patch 2.6.7a is live worldwide and the known issues list has been updated with a bug related to Tempest Rush Flurry, which causes players who turn very quickly to lose their Flurry stacks.
      If you're affected by this bug, Blizzard recommends avoiding quick turns before a hotfix patch is released.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Patch 2.6.7a is now live in all regions. For more information about this patch, please view our Patch Notes here.
      Below is a list of currently known issues in Patch 2.6.7a. We are aware of these cases and actively working on resolving them. If a resolution has been deployed via hotfix, we’ll update this thread accordingly. Please note some issues may need to be resolved in a future patch.
      Last Updated: November 21 @ 11:30 AM PT
      Monk
      Tempest RushFlurry Players who turn very quickly (180 degrees or more) may lose their stacks of Flurry Workaround: While we intend to address this in a future patch, avoiding extremely quick/flick turns can mitigate the impact of this issue.

      The balance patch has finally gone live with the return of Lamentation, a nerf/fix for Bazooka wizard, and fixes for Fjord Cutter and Won Khim Lau, as well as the new monk set! This should (hopefully) be the very final changes before Season 19 launches on Friday. If you wanted to check out the earlier base patch notes, you can do so here. We've also started publishing out S19 guides, with barbarians and crusaders already prepared.

      Below you will find the patch notes for the most recent update for Diablo III, Patch 2.6.7a.
      Last updated November 20 @ 10:00 a.m. PST.
      PATCH 2.6.7a
      Table of Contents:
      Items Bug Fixes Note: All changes apply to all versions of Diablo III, including PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC unless otherwise indicated.
      Items
      Lamentation Now increases the damage of Rend by [100-150%] Developer's Note: As we've indicated in forum posts, we overshot on Lamentation 's original implementation during the 2.6.7 PTR. However, we also very much undershot the overall balance of Rend/Whirlwind's adjustments by removing this bonus completely. After reading a ton of your feedback and completing our own internal testing, we've settled on a middle ground we believe reaches the balance level we were shooting for. Shield of Fury The benefit of this item now stacks up to a cap of 20 Developer's Note: As many of you noted coming out of our 2.6.7 update, we also overshot on Crusader with the live patch. We love to see Crusader performing much better with it's new set, and this cap should reign in damage to a more reasonable level Return to Top Bugs
      Wizard Wave of ForceArcane Attunement Stacks of Arcane Attunement are now removed upon entering a Greater Rift (PC Only) Note: This change will be coming to Console in a future patch. Patterns of Justice Fixed an issue where the Tempest RushFlurry rune attack did not benefit from the 6-Piece bonus when cancelling Tempest Rush (PC Only) Developer's Note: We were unable to resolve this for 2.6.7a for Console; however, it is slated to be fixed on Console in a future patch. Fjord Cutter Fixed an issue where Fjord Cutter was increasing all damage to slowed or chilled enemies instead of just Seismic Slam damage Won Khim Lau Fixed a bug where Epiphany would trigger teleporting while channeling Tempest RushElectric Field when Won Khim Lau was equipped Return to Top

      Season 19 is coming this Friday and it brings a lot of changes with it, especially for the two classes we've already prepared guides for - the barbarian and crusader. With the new legendary powers for barb and a whole new set for crusader, their builds have been shaken up a little, with the two new build entries for the holy warriors coming in at No.1 and No.9! We'll be adding more Season 19 guides as the week goes on, and all classes will be covered when the new season starts.

      If you need to brush up on all the changes from the patch, you can check out the patch notes here and the recent balance changes here.

      As previously indicated, the Era Leaderboards will be temporary disabled and all previous entries between the launch of Patch 2.6.7 and 2.6.7a will be removed. Note that Greater Rift clears during leaderboard maintenance will not be recorded.
      Blizzard (Source)
      As we’ve previously indicated, we will be resetting the current Era in light of the balance changes coming in Patch 2.6.7a. Once the patch begins deployment, the Era Leaderboards will be temporarily disabled and all previous entries between the launch of Patch 2.6.7 and Patch 2.6.7a will be removed.
      During leaderboard maintenance, please note that Greater Rift clears during this time period will not be recorded. Messaging will be available in-game to indicate that the leaderboards are unavailable. We advise against attempting to clear new records until maintenance has ended—we’ll update this thread once the Era has finished resetting.
      Thanks for your patience and understanding, and we’ll see you in Patch 2.6.7a!
    • By Starym
      It seems we spoke too soon when saying the previously published balance patch notes were "final", as there's a late addition to patch 2.6.7a. The "Bazooka" Wizard build is getting nerfed via a bug fix removing their ability to carry over Arcane Attunement stacks from GR to GR. This isn't that huge of a nerf and the build will still probably be among the best/the best/OP, but at least it's something.
      We also got word that the balance patch won't be coming tomorrow, Tuesday, as usual, but later in the week before the season 19 launch on Friday.
      2.6.7a (source)
      Later this week, but before the Season 19 launch. While we normally deploy patches on Tuesdays, that will likely not be the case here. We also want to address an egregious Bazooka Wizard issue the community has brought to our attention. While we won’t be able to completely address the build as a whole for Season 19, we can address the Wave of ForceArcane Attunement stack concern before the Season goes live for PC. This fix will come at a later time for console, though the build is largely impractical on those platforms. I’ll update the original post’s patch notes in this thread in a moment with the incoming change. That way everyone will know what to expect.
      ...
      This issue will be fixed in 2.6.7a on PC. It will be coming to console in a later patch, though we don’t really see Bazooka Wizard being played on console due to the difficulties in executing the build.
