[General Article] Diablo 3: Hey Blizzard! Thanks for the Crusader!

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelMMORPG.COM Staff Posts: 21,471 Epic

The Crusader is the new class coming to Diablo 3 when the Reaper of Souls expansion goes live sometime in 2014. We take a look at why one player is giving thanks for this awesome new addition. Read on before heading to the comments.

Being that today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States, I want to take a different tack when it comes to my thoughts about the new Crusader class. Rather than another recitation of what the class can do and a thousand words later, I will instead make a simple list of the reasons why I am personally thankful that the Crusader is coming to my favorite action RPG.

    Yeah thanks Blizz. How do you expect to compete with Titanfall and ESO with a pixel character called the crusader for fans who already OWN the game are BORED of the game and probably will neve COME BACK to the game. Just a question that's all. Unless you stop fucking about and release some fucking solid info on Titan.

    Boy real nice people, well thanks for the article anyhow, I always enjoy a good read here. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

    I like the Crusader.  Paladin was one of my favorites in D2.  Instead of being holier than thou, the Crusader is more like Holier you are because my flail just hit you 50 times :D

    Excellent article, I too like the crusader alot but I'm afraid I will avoid it for the first few months due to its immense popularity.

    I don't recall MMORPG.com ever promising you a medium for free speech...

    I visit this site since 2003, i know alot changed and articles like those are certainly the wrong trend to follow

    Crusaders are holy warriors, though they tend to live on the flipside from the 'warriors of light' that the Paladins represent. They are driven and focused in their zeal to rid the world of evil.

     

    Love it! I have a skyrim character that essentially embodies this attitude, very intense, very fun to play.

    I'm very excited about this class and can't wait to get back into the game.

    This article was not "information" it was "opinion", go to twitch and watch people playing this expansion, no NDA = nothing to hide.

    She's such a shill for D3 it's ridiculous.

     

    None of what's been announced is all that great.  it just puts them at a spot where they should have launched at, and its still missing ladders and PVP.  And you have to spend another $40 to get what we should have had over a year and a half ago.

     

    Every column is just free advertising anyway.

    What is the difference? I read gaming articles all the time and I know it's normal for journalists to be overly positive for previews and first impressions.

    Then when it's review time they take a neutral stance and list the pros AND cons.

    So in that regard this maybe isn't all that weird but this is extremely positive with NO mention of any cons what so ever.  Maybe it's an American thing (I usually read European articles) but I don't feel articles like this should be written by a journalist. This reads like an add or an article from a total fangirl and not written by an independent writer.

    I think some people expect too much of the writers on this site. Absolutely nothing against the writers, I genuinely love this site. But I think people expect "Dateline MMORPG" hard hitting reports from inside the industry. They want interviews where they try and piss off the dev, articles that come off as bitter as many forum posters are.

     

    Sorry, this is more akin to being a big MMORPG fan site. These are MMO enthusiasts who do this as a second job. They aren't hard hitting journalists looking to expose the industry. Not that anyone really is doing that because that's a sure fire way to not get any information or interviews ever again...

    So basically, just chill out people. Learn to relax a little bit.

    Lol just in case you didn't catch what you did it's called Latest MMORPG.com News not Latest MMORPG News.

    Basically it's saying latest news from our website. So they can cover  MMOs and RPGs if they want. I'm hoping they change the site to:

    MMO+RPG.com

    Some of you need to eat more turkey and chill for the day. If it's not Thanksgiving in your neck of the woods, get something to eat that makes you happy. This was fully intended to be a fluff opinion piece to honor the day more than anything else. Sheesh.

    For the record: If the article had been a completely informative hard-assed piece, the same people would have been kvetching that D3 isn't an MMO and doesn't belong on the site. 

    Damned if you do. Damned if you don't. ;)

    Happy Thanksgiving for those who celebrate. Cheers for a Thursday evening for those who don't.

    Do you have any examples of D3 articles you've written that take Blizzard to task for not giving a worthy successor to D2 or explained why so many were unhappy?
