To me it feels as if the agenda is to make the player base as large as possible with all the console ports that have come out, and now this mobile game, in preparation for a multiplat-at-launch D4 that they hope will be mega successful. Makes financial sense, hopefully the brand isn't tarnished in the process.
Diablo 3 with its always online, real-money Auction House, and how simplified it was compaired to D2... Id say it was tarnished even then.
Waiting 6-7years and then getting this mobile game, thats a reskinned Netease game by some chinese diablo clone game makers, is honestly like a slap in the face.
Brand for diablo is tarnished.
Diablo used to be the pinnacle of these types of games in the genre, and it isnt anymore.
