Do you remember what happened when Diablo 3 came out? The dreaded Error 37, which set playtimes back a couple days?
Do you remember how even though the professional critics raved about the game, the USERS were extremely angry about not being able to actually PLAY the game?
Do you remember the USER SCORE on Metacritic? http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/diablo-iii
People will vote negatively if this is not fixed promptly.
For your own good, Blizzard, YOU HAVE TO FIX THIS. The users will take out their anger on you, and you cannot change the metacritic scores much once the majority of angry people have voted. You will lose sales. You will lose subscriptions. You will forfeit new players. Old players will see the score and reconsider returning.
We all want to play the game. We all want this game to be a success. But This kind of oversight can really cause some terrible PR. Every Bad vote brings this game a tiny nudge closer to death.
