It's depressing to read this thread.

Some comment are just disgraceful. It may be that we represent the same community from the outside, but I don't want to be associated with most of the people in this thread. You bring shame to the Blizzard community.

I hope Jay doesn't focus too much on the hateful comments. I personally love Diablo III and wish him the best of luck in the future at Blizzard. Hopefully he'll continue to contribute to creating more awesome Blizzard games.


I totally agree. As much as we all know that Diablo 3 has had some pitfalls, and game designers have made mistakes, there's no reason for people to get all deeply personal with him about it.

Its a damn game people. Get a bloody grip will ya? I don't care if people get personal with me, I am just a face on the Internet and nobody knows who I really am. But Jay's a real person, with real feelings, who put his face in front of the community. That's different. Real people get hurt by some of the things you post, including friends and family of his.

Sure he's made mistakes (Facebook incident), but he's only human.

Acutally Blizzard made/choose this community by stupid decisions.
Since they introduced free epics 4 all, so the lowest no-brainer can play, things started to get worse while smarter people started to leave.

Log into WoW and see for yourself. Log into GW2 and compare.
In WoW Noobs are getting instant flamed for questions, in GW2 10 ppl reply with proper answers.

Playing Blizzard games feels like your the sheep in wolves territory, lol.

Warcraft was always for kids, starcraft and diablo were for real men, now only starcraft is for real men.

Well, this is kind of sad. I think you made a great game overall despite its flaws :)

Indeed.

And to all those who thinks he is hurt. Do you really think he gives a .. about what people here thinks of him? He already got the phat loot $$ from the D3 and thus left it to rot (or not).

It's not that he quit, it's that he promised things and then quits at not so good moment for D3. Seems like he's just throwing white towel.

Most people express their views on Jay's work on Diablo 3. Why is that hating?
I'm not satisfied with Diablo 3 either. D2 was a classic in almost every way: the mood, the story, the character development, music, etc. It was an awesome, addictive gothic horror game.

D3 is a trading game, where your character is getting better by AH trading. Buy underpriced goods and sell them. Not by playing the game. Paragon level means absolutely nothing. Engame: trade more.

Is Jay personally responsible for every little mistake? NO.
Is Jay responsible for the flawed game mechanics? YES, absolutely.
Will anything change by this? NO.

I cannot agree more with those saying: bring back the Blizzard North D2 people!
And also happy that Jay left. It was about time.

I played Diablo 1/2 and would go as far as saying d2 was one of the best games I have ever played, and it got me thoroughly addicted. I waited over 10 years for d3 and to be honest I feel you have let down not only the community but yourselves in designing such a poor sequel.

I will be buying marvel heroes created by David brevik ( the real man behind diabloiii success). After watching the videos on YouTube it already looks more of a sequel to d2 than d3 ever could be. Roll on dec 2013 when it comes out

I'm really not behind this personal stuff. He did his job and we don't like it much but no need to attack him personally. But this picture is really really funny and well-written and has all the fun of pocking fingers yet none of the "I hate you and I will M*U*R*D*E*R you for releasing this game!" of other posts. Cudos Steve!

EDIT: The 50% chance to double it hit me hard in the belly LOL

LOL they wont. He will manage someting out of sight. Like Lucas - he won't do another SW movie because everybody screams YOU ARE AN IDIOT at him (for 3 good movies reasons!).

Guys hold your horses a bit , you don't know who will replace Jay and what kind of gross things he might possible do to our beloved Diablo world.

Jay ! Thanks for everything you gave us, for hours , days and weeks of passionate play, the whole world you and your team created for us. Diablo series is the best game ever created and no other game is even near to keep up with the title.

I hope you will be still around the team and they will have your support in developing new ideas.

Where exactly are you moving ? are you starting completely new project or upgrading existing one ?

All the best man ! Thanks a million

Jay Wilson maybe moving on but its Blizzard that is to blame for its games, Diablo3 is half baked, Starcraft 3 has become a diary production line and Wow is no better. Gaming history is repetting itself, big money has moved in. When that happens what made the games good to start with, is lost forever. Time to move on Blizzard has become, a has been. Give their games a good 6 months on the shelfs before looking at, never mind buying them.
