Let me start this off by saying, before this game came out, I had a good life. I had a great paying job as a software engineer. I lived in San Diego, voted best city in the world by many top 10 lists. I had a beautiful fiance. Life was grand.
[/size][/color]
And then Diablo III came out...
It started off great, I leveled up quickly on my first character, progressing through the story at a moderate pace. I knew I would listen to the storyline at a later time, so skipping through all the cutscenes didn't bother me. I would play between working spurts; I'd work for 2 hours, then play Diablo for 15 minutes. After work was when I got my real play time in. My fiance would occasionally bring me food and a beer, kiss on the cheek, then off on her way to knit on the couch or do laundry.
I had a great little system
And then it started... I hit inferno Act 2....
The first few minutes in Act 2, a disaster. Dragonfly's shooting dragonfly's out of their mouths, killing you with one hit. Cat's jumping off the ledges right on top of you, killing you in one hit. Everything, moving fast and killing you in one hit and you could do nothing about it......
I yelled at the screen in anger. "WHAT THE !@#!!!!!!!!!" But it only got worse as I progressed. Eventually, I made it to the sewers, but it was too much, had to stop playing and roll another character.
Since all my friends were already level 60, I had to spend a little more time than I normally did on Diablo to catch up my new character. I spent 30 minutes on Diablo for every one hour of work. I found myself telling my co-workers to "hold on a sec" or "I'm on the phone, just email me" everytime they pinged me. The house would get a little sloppier, bowls and plates and utensils littering my computer desk.
"Yes honey, I will clean up after this act..."
"Babe, I will change your oil tomorrow, I have 5 stacks of neph valor..."
"Honey, I will put out the kitchen fire AFTER I kill Izual..."
And then, the big IAS nerf of June 2012...
My new character, fully equipped to the teeth in IAS gear. Amulet, both rings, weapon, bracers and ever pants, (legendary and set) was now doing less than half of his current damage... And I am left too poor in game to cope, especially with inflated Auction House prices brought on by the RMAH, so I roll another character....
At this point, I was really behind, so I would work for 15 minutes, then I would play Diablo for 2 hours. It was just to catch up I would tell myself, I would go back to working my usual hours once my character hit 60.
My boss was breathing down my neck, demanding where my time was being spent. We lost 4 clients because I didn't call them to help with an implementation project. And after 2 months of juggling Diablo III and work, my boss calls me in the middle of a dungeon run through act 3. "Son...." (he always called me son, even thought I was slightly older than him) "Son, I'm not sure what is going on in your life, but I don't feel you have the attention for this line of work anymore, I am going to have to let you go....."
Giving the news to my fiance of my job loss wasn't the hardest part. It was the fact that I lost my 4 stacks of nephalem valor right before fighting Glom.
Everything was killing me in one hit at this point. Being a wizard, I couldn't sacrifice intelligence for resist all since items which had both were incredibly inflated on the AH. And there was no way I would find a piece of gear that was an upgrade for me off a monster, that would make too much sense and would make Blizzard no money.
Everytime I died to a birds fireball, I would yell at the screen, cursing obscenities that I have never said before. One time I yelled out "!@#$@# @)()(@ @#@#." I actually had to look up what that meant online because I had no idea. Let me tell you, I had nightmares from just looking at the google images of that word....
My fiance would tell me to calm down, I would yell at her and tell her to calm down. But it just got so bad that one day I woke up, and she was gone. All her things were missing, no clothes in the closet, no keys on the keyholder, nothing....
I walked into my office, and I saw a note on the one place she knew I would find it, on my keyboard:
"I'm sorry, I feel like this game has taken over you. You have become an angry person, you don't have your priorities set in life and you need to take a hard look at yourself and what you have become. I am leaving you, I am staying at John's house, he is comforting me in my time of mourning."
I was devastated.
I have no job, no fiance, and I am stuck with a game where I need to pay $500 USD to progress any further...
And the worst part about it....
I paid $500.

Και εγώ έχω παίξει αρκετό Diablo αλλά δε νομίζω ότι είναι και παιχνίδι να χάσεις τον ύπνο σου. Ειδικά στο σημείο που είμαστε εμείς εμείς είναι σα να αγοράζεις λαχείο. Κάνεις ένα run πχ. ACT I που δεν αποτελεί καν challenge πλέον, γεμίζεις το inventory κίτρινα και μετά κάνεις identify να δεις τι κέρδισες.

Για την ιστορία, σίγουρα είναι troll post το παραπάνω.


Επίσης αν δε λεγόταν Diablo 3, θα λεγόταν έτσι:
