After seven years Blizzard has officially canceled Titan – their brand new replacement for World of Warcraft.
Blizzard co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime reiterated that the company has technically never officially announced Titan, though it hasn’t been shy to talk about the game over the past seven years. “We had created World of Warcraft, and we felt really confident that we knew how to make MMOs,” Morhaime said. “So we set out to make the most ambitious thing that you could possibly imagine. And it didn’t come together.

There’s a mini-game on G2A’s website where you can play a game (a funny flappy bird copy) and have a chance to win one of 100 copies of Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls. If you don’t want to take your chances in their contest just buy the game in their store as it’s cheaper than the Blizzard’s. More information in here folks. Diablo 3 sucks anyway lol.
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm CD-KEY GLOBAL is now at lower price on G2A. Grab it right here.
Seriously, what the fuck? This game just became a lot worse. More information on official Diablo III forums.
Bashiok of Blizzard support replies to Linux bans: “…the circumstances for which they were banned were clear and accurate, and we are extremely confident in our findings. Playing the game on Linux, although not officially supported, will not get you banned – cheating will.”
Server and connection problems with Diablo III in South Korea have forced Blizzard to go against its previous policy and offer refunds to dissatisfied gamers after prodding from a Korean consumer protection agency.
Blizzard announced through is Korean Diablo III site that it would start offering refunds to players lower than level 40 beginning on June 25, according to the Wall Street Journal. Disgruntled players can apply for the refunds through July 3. Blizzard also said that, from now on, it would accept returns of the game within 14 days of purchase from any player under level 20.
The move comes almost a month after Korea’s Fair Trade Commission began investigating complaints that gamers unhappy with their Diablo III experience could not get refunds because of Blizzard’s no-return policy. In early June, Blizzard added more servers to ease the load of an unexpectedly high number of players joining the game, apologizing in the process for the inconvenience and poor planning.
Due to lack of information about the game on the box of Diablo 3 and the lack of access to the game because of technical problems, the Consumer Federation warned the game manufacturer Blizzard.
Blizzard has failed to inform players about permanent Internet connection requirement on the game box. Also in connection with the registration requirement on Battle.net, Blizzard’s internal network, there is no information about entering the game key as well.
The game can only be used if the player is logged into his/her personal account on Battle.net.
Now, Blizzard has time until 13.07.2012 to cease and desist because of antitrust violations (whatever that means, we are not quite sure yet).
In France, the very serious “UFC Que Choisir” organization (focused on protecting consumers of all kinds of products) has received over 1500 complaints in 4 days from gamers about connect-ability issues and has asked Blizzard to have a permanent solution within 15 days and to communicate completely and transparently about problems encountered in due time.
They are also requesting that affected gamers be given damages for troubles they may have had, and, in a much broader but more official manner, are asking the DGCCRF to have a close look at online-only DRMed games and how they work, including economically. They basically feel that it’s wrong to assume that an entire nation (well, at least France) has equal internet quality and reception across its entire territory and hence, online-only seems are harmful for some (many?) consumers (which is who they’re trying to protect).
