    As opposed to you calling anyone out who praises anything, while refusing to consider your own opinion is wrong? Pot meet kettle.

    Opinions are not fact, so they are not wrong. Stop acting like your opinion is fact. That is the definition of elitism.

    Prior to being called Mourneblades, those kinds of weapons were always referred to as Runeblades. This is a holdover from the Death Knight inspiration that can be found in games like D&D. Mourneblade is relatively recent addition.

    Diablo 4 looks so dull and lifeless next to Hearthstone's bright and lively energy.

    Metzen isn't retired. He started his own studio this year. Which is why he probably won't be around anymore in Blizzard things.

    I think the absence of Ion is telling. Might be wishful thinking, but Hight doing the presentation and not Ion might mean something.

    In their defense "No one escapes the Maw" starts to break down when mortals are leaving the Maw in droves, so it's not necessarily unreasonable for them to assume he's OK, especially if there's a faux escape that will be portrayed in game.

    It is relatively new yes, but it makes perfect sense. There is no grabbing lore out of nothing here

    And why is that a bad thing? Appealing to nostalgia is wrong? Because I saw people so many people asking for Classic.

    True i forgot that, it seems more like a "something to keep me busy" thing. like an actual hobby studio. Imo anyway

    Did you already forget that you said "refused to consider that your opinion is wrong"? That is you calling yoru opinion right and therefore fact.

    Wouldn't say so. This time we have at least two build types: melee and ranged, just like Amazon. Demon Hunter was almost exclusively ranged.

    What?! Didn't know that! Nope, not at all! Completely oblivious to all of that and I'm definitely not interested in his new gaming company on the side! Nope, none of that, I had no idea! Consider me floored by your knowledge of well known facts!
