After the initial mess they made us for 60$, they should make this one free… Simply because D3 is far gone in the memory of many peoples. And ask them what they remember of D3?… It’s the mess it was…

Would you pay 40$ for a ‘potential’ fix for a broken game?… Not me… Maybe 10$ max…

PS: I still can’t believe that we were vocal enough to make the AH goes, but not enough to have an offline mode?… Digital Deluxe BS…

I agree that D3 is a complete failure on PC, And many people, like me, stopped playing it. But with the upcoming patch which includes loot 2.0 and the auction house gone (yeah not until march I know), The base game is (hopefully) going to be fun finally, and will pull people back in.
As D3 stands now, no I won’t buy the expansion. But if the patch makes D3 as good as I think it will, then maybe yes.

I do think it is way over-priced. And DD and CE for an expansion at those prices? Especially the fact that if you want more character slots, you have to buy the Digital Deluxe Edition for 60,- That’s pretty evil.

Whether or not I’ll buy Reaper of Souls depends entirely on if the patch can fix the stuff that made me stop playing D3 in the first place, and considering the rather petulant response of one of the developer’s whose name I can’t be bothered to look up about how he knows what we want better than we do, I don’t think that my largest complaint will be addressed and the game will still require an online connection even though I will never, ever play it multiplayer.

Why would I buy an expansion unto a game that took me 4 hours to beat? Seriously how can they justify $60 for a 4 hour game. This expansion will add maybe one hour. So great, $100 for a 5 hour game. Compare that to skyrim, $60 for an 80 hour game. The fact that you have to pay extra for character slots is a joke.
