As much as I'm excited for the D2 remaster

I hate that current Blizzard promo tactics are to use streamers to showcase or interview the developers. I get I’m probably in the minority but to me it just seems so cringy. It doesn’t take anything away from the D2 Remaster for me, but I just don’t find it fun to watch when I have to hear this person especially.

With Mrllamasc in particular, I’m not a fan of Youtubers or streamers asking for subs / donations before the user has even gotten a chance to see if they enjoy the content. Just a pet peeve of mine. Anyway that’s it, just not a fan of the whole concept of this I guess.

We loved partnering with MrLlamaSC. Beyond being a great guy, he’s very informed on all things related to Diablo II, but more importantly, he’s authentic in his representation of the community he lives within.

The Deep Dive Panel for Diablo II: Resurrected was fantastic because he genuinely had the context and knowledge to geek out with the developers. We wanted our viewers to experience that panel vicariously through him, a true fan just as passionate about this game we all cherish.

I hope that insight assists in understanding our approach.
