“Hell Yeah！”Mike Morhaime振臂高呼，然后很欣慰的看到大家逐渐从震惊中反应过来，开始应和他，他们都是适应性极强的人，他们是人中之龙，他想，当他看到wow制作团队里那个负责打扫卫生的家伙跳起了恰恰时，他一直悬在半空的心终于放下了。
“大家对a2 a3 a4的难度不满，并且对a1，a2的掉落不满，认为装备太难取得”
“好吧，那就让a1 a2也掉最高等级的装备，但a3 a4的掉落降到原来的1/3，并且降低a2 a3 a4怪的伤害，但提高他们使用特殊技能的频率，取消任务怪的掉落，取消罐子的掉落，取消mf对箱子的作用，总之，让装备的掉落和改之前持平”
不知感恩的玩家又在喷ias的改动了，委屈的Bashiok突然有些失落，你们这些玩家缩在安逸的家里玩着游戏，丝毫不知我们正在拯救你们可悲的生命，而比邻星上的士兵们更是用自己的生命换来你们的生存，你们还不知足吗？激动之下，竟然把aren’t you thankful打到了帖子的回复里。刚想删掉，转念一想，放着吧，这样可以吸引一下大家对亲爱的jay的仇恨了，就这么放着，让大家来喷我，放过亲爱的jay吧。
Jay Wilson坐在办公桌前看论坛上玩家对他的指责，有玩家说暴雪背地里对游戏做出改动而不告诉玩家很不公平，公平？ Jay淡淡一笑，战争，从来就不公平。
Blizzard the true hero, Jay the real man. Aftershow of Diablo III development.
“We were accused, again. Joey.” Boishak hugged Joey from behind tenderly. He always pressed his face on Joey’s generous back to feel the masculinity, whenever he was aggrieved by the forum. This will always recharge him. Joey patted his hand softly: “Doesn’t matter… Doesn’t matter… B… Doesn’t matter… In the name of God… In the name of God…”
19:00 May 14th, 2008. Pentagon.
Zerg is coming!
“Through tremendous efforts on the rigorous investigation, we got strong enough evidence to support an astonishing conclusion.” U. S. Secretary of Defense nodded to the Ministers of Defense from China, Japan, Simida, France, Russia and U. K. displayed in the screen. “It was confirmed that the seismic zone on Earth was not naturally formed. In fact, the Zerg-like intelligent creatures from Proxima Centauri had visited Earth long before and placed Gravity Wave Manipulators (GWM) deep in the crust. The locations for the GWM are called seismic zone now. It is still unclear that what their final purpose is, however evidence indicates that they will activate all GWM in Dec. 21st, 2012, which would cause a huge shock on the crust and destroy the geological structure. The crust will be torn. The lava from the Earth’s core will be poured forth and melt everything. That is the end of human being. That is the end of the world.” He paused for a short moment, looked at the defense ministers. “We have to stop it.”
“Fortunately, we have found the interstellar portal on the back of the Moon: they built them and abandoned them when they left the Earth. We will create an interplanetary expeditionary force as soon as possible. Our expeditionary force will land on Proxima Centauri in exactly four years. Our force will step into their snare, destroy the prime evil, wreck their central switch of GWM, and, ultimately, save the human being, save the Earth.”
“Simida!” ministers were excited and sang their national anthem for celebration.
14:30 May 15th, 2008. Conference Hall, Blizzard Headquarter.
Michael Maihorme was both excited and worried. The defense ministers approved to assign the Blizzard such an important task. This was an unbeatable evidence that “Have problem? Find Blizzard” is a world-wide recognized axiom. But the task itself would discredit Blizzard completely. All the glory would go with the wind. However, does the glory worth 50 cents when compared with the rescue of all mankind?
Everyone in the headquarter was gathered, including the gays responsible for cleaning affairs, to take this confidential conference. This was Michael’s decision. He must keep honest to all his staffs. “What I’m going to say is confidential, absolutely confidential. Any leakage will cause a decapitation penalty by the Ministry of Rescuing Human Being. Please leave it a regulation. Do not try.” Michael was glad that everyone was dignified. Everything was OK.
“The Minister of Defense visited our company this morning and told me shocking news. Also he told me something about a glorious decision and now I decide to forward the glory to you.”
Michael Maihorme started with the existence with the creature on Proxima Centauri. He explained their evil plans, the information the expeditionary had got from Proxima Centauri, the strong body these creature had, and the high expectation of Ministry of Rescuing Human Being to Blizzard.
“We have never encountered such powerful enemies. They are fast, faster than our physiologically-strengthened soldiers. They are tough, have great amount of Health Point. Their thick skin can stand the bombardment of regular tanks. They can also stick to high level of fighting in the case of continuous bleeding. They can still go on fighting for several hours after heavily injured. They also have different kinds of fighting skills due to genetic mutation. Some of them are extremely faster. Some can bury laser generator that rotates and causes great harm. Some can even summon to the earth and change the landscape to trap their enemy. In general, they are much stronger than us. In order to achieve the final victory, the Ministry of Rescuing Human Being request us, Blizzard, to produce a game that can simulation and solve the problem. We Blizzard is the only company that can make it!”
“Hell Yeah!” Michael shouted, and then very pleased to see a gradual shift from shock to react. Everyone here holds great adaptability. They are outstanding persons. He started to ease down when he saw the one in responsible of cleaning for WoW group hopping Cha Cha
We can do. We can.
“I need volunteers.” He continued his obligation when everyone was gradually calmed. “I will dismiss the original Diablo III production team. I hope you can join this group but to be honest, you will face a huge sacrifice if you join this group.”
“You will make this Diablo III game. You shall make the monsters as strong as the soldiers from Proxima Centauri. You shall make the players massacred by the monsters like our soldiers did, doing, and will do. You shall make this game extremely unbalanced, like the reality. You shall manipulate bunch of bugs since our force does not have any advantage on Proxima Centauri. You will completely destroy the reputation of Diablo III. You will be cursed by the f**king angry players. You will be joked by the f**king media. You will be the terminator of Diablo series. You will be nailed on the shame column of the future game chronicle.”
Michael cleared his choking voice and continued, “You must increase the Diablo III pre-release sales number by all means to increase the user base and in turn increase the possibility of players finding the correct way of defeating Proxima Centauri soldiers. You will tout, abuse, and destroy Diablo III. You will be called humiliation, but you will save the world.”
“You can overdraft Blizzard’s reputation as you wish. But I will never support you publicly. So, decision time. Who want to join Diablo III production team?” Michael looked to everyone with a strong hope.
Destroy the reputation of Blizzard? A game company that stands on the top of the world for decades? Who will take this infamy? Who will be the criminal of history? Noisy heap, no volunteer. Michael is disappointed, but not surprised.
At that time, the Cha Cha guy hesitantly stood out after a long time of silence. “I do.” He whispered, but nobody heard except Michael. He then shouted, “I do!” The crowd stopped bickering and looked at him. “I will make Diablo III, take the infamy, be the criminal of history,” he firmly said, then “and save the mankind.”
Michael could not help tearing when looking at his slightly deformed face and his determined look.
“I’m with you, Joey!” Boishak, another cleaner of WoW group also stood out. They sweared to be live and dead together. Their relationship was once again sublimated.
The crowd seems to find their courage with this scene.
The elites of cleaning, repairing computer and guys doing other errands odd jobs from WoW and SC2 production group standed out and beside Joey with Boishak. A new Diablo III production group. Mankind will be saved!
“You will be called Diablo III expedition.” Michael looked at them. “You will be curse by numerous players, along with your family.”
He looked at Joey. “They want to kill you.”
“I know.” Joey firmly looked back to Michael. “I will create my image in the game and let them kill me. I will satisfy them, will give them an achievement.”
Boishak affectionately pinched Joey’s ass. “I’m with you. I will try my best to share your infamy.”
“Wish you good luck.” Michael gave the USB flash drive with information on Proxima Centauri to Joey.
22:37 Aug 3rd, 2008. Joey Home.
“Brille Morrison, the head of the art group, resigned due to pressure.”
“I know that. I know the pressure. I do not blame him. We can recruit a new one. We are Blizzard and everyone want to work for it.”
“MMMMMMMMMMMMMM UUUUUUUUUUUUUU AAAAAAAAAAAAAA HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”
“Itching~ dear B~”
23:00 May 14th, 2012. Blizzard Headquarter.
“Let the server administrators to generate some random logging error”
“Our soldiers are facing some transportation error. We must perfectly simuate this process.”
“OK~ Now~ Luv u Jo~”
10:39 May 17th, 2012. Blizzard Headquarter.
“Many players are exploiting a chamber in Act 2.”
“That’s Fine. Our force just destroyed a stronghold and found a large amount of powerful equipment. Our soldiers now hold these transformed equipment and their combat power is greatly improved. We can let the players to go on exploiting for several days to simulate this issue. We can change the loot of that chamber later.”
“OK~ Now~ Luv u Jo~”
14:00 May 23th, 2012. Blizzard Headquarter.
“We made mistakes in the design of skills for Wizard and Demon Hunter. Our soldiers do not have such strong skills.”
“There is a bug in Wizards’ transport skill. Occasionally the player will be transport to their original position.”
“There is a similar in our force’s transport equipment. So just maintain this bug. Tell the coder, don’t fix this bug.”
“OK~ Now~ Luv u Jo~”
12:30 Jun 5th, 2012. Blizzard Headquarter.
“Players are not satisfied with the difficulty of Act 2, 3, and 4. They also feel angry about the loot of Act 1 and 2. They think the gears are too hard to obtain.”
“Out soldiers have the same possibility of obtaining the equipment of Proxima Centauri. Their force are even harder to kill. Let the players shut up.”
“But, no modifications, less players. This will hamper the occurrence of ways for effective kill enemy.”
“Okay, then let players loot best gears from Act 1 and 2, but the loot rate for Act 3 and 4 be 1/3 of their original rate. Reduce the damage done by monster in Act 2, 3, and 4, but increase the frequency of their special skills. Cancel the loot from quest monster. Cancel the loot from vases. Cancel the effect of Magic Find on chamber. In a word, maintain the drop rate unchanged.”
“OK~ Now~ Luv u Jo~”
09:09 Jun 20th, 2012. Blizzard Headquarter.
These f**king ungrateful players again vituperating the changes on Increased Attack Speed. Boishak the aggrieved suddenly felt disappointing. You f**king players staying at home playing games comfortably, without any knowledge that we are saving your pathetic lives. Our soldiers on Proxima Centauri are even sacrificing themselves for your lives. Aren’t you thankful? Under anger, Boishak even typed “Aren’t you thankful” in the reply of a post. At first he wanted to delete this post. Then an idea come to his mind. Just leave it there. It can distract some of the anger from my dear Joey. Come on s** of b****, give Joey a break.
09:09 Jun 27th, 2012. Blizzard Headquarter.
“With the advancement of our force, the damage of enemy is increasing.”
“Tell our server administrator, change the damage done by the monsters. Don’t change too severely. One time in several day is enough.”
“OK~ Now~ Luv u Jo~”
19:30 Jun 27th, 2012. Blizzard Headquarter.
Joey Wolsin sitting in front of his desk, looking at the accusation against him. Someone said that it was unfair that Blizzard changed the game without notifying the players. Unfair? Joey smiled. War is not fair.
