    Yes if today's rune is something we've never seen before it could mean the new franchise.

    With Blizz, who knows?

    Blizzard is just jerking us off. No other teaser has ever had anything conclusive in it. It is meant to be a mystery up until the final day.

    :cry:

    TYRAEL IN LOST OASIS

    Sell enough azurewraths and you will get a message saying "Tyrael walks the earth". Go to Lost Oasis and kill him there for epic loots.

    :p

    they're doing a pretty amazing job of making the shadowy figure resemble both the lich king and diablo at the same time.

    Looks like another winner from Blizzard. The depth of the game is obvious in the information they have released so far. After playing Mythos I really appreciate Blizzard's attention to fundamentals like story, concept, direction, and design philosophy.

    My one concern is that there is no confirmation about the online subscription, whether it's free or not. They say battle.net will be getting upgrades for D3 so we will find out details about that later. I am hoping for a paid subscription option since that is the best way to combat the problem of cheating which has plagued the other diablo games.

    I am also hoping for a character customization model like WoW, where there are only unlearnable talents and no customizable stat points. The idea is to eliminate worry over speccing wrong and also to eliminate the possibility of permanently gimping your character. Those things aren't fun.

    Mixed feelings about that. I agree it may be the best option if they cannot cost effectively upgrade the security of battle.net without the consumers absorbing some of that cost. In this case, I would consider having to pay a nominal fee for battle.net to be a worthwhile tradeoff to combat the cheating that, as you point out, has been rampant in the first two iterations.

    That said, it's always been a part of Blizzard's core philosophy that battle.net is a free service. With the money they are raking in from WoW, not to mention the fact that D3 will likely break the single day sales record (currently held by... D2!) there will be a somewhat justified backlash if they start charging for something that was free in the past.

    If the money is used effectively, fine. If the only reason for charging is based on the assumption that cheaters wouldn't pay for it, that's a pretty large assumption that is likely untrue.

    Agreed. I didn't mind the talent point model of D2, except for the fact that it was irrevocable. I think they learned that lesson with WoW, and I'd be very surprised if there wasn't some mechanism to respec.
