Diablo III temporarily removes the Necromancer from testing

And lo, it did pass that a select group of players of Diablo III were invited to test the Necromancer in the beta version of the game’s next major patch. And those players did test, and they experimented, and there was much rejoicing. But then Blizzard did decree that the Necromancer would be removed from testing for an unspecified timeframe as of today, and Blizzard didst encourage its testers to continue testing, but without the new class.

Now there was time when those who had seen the message (and those who had not, for it could only be accessed by those in the test) didst debate why the Necromancer was removed. And one soul rose with a speculation, saying this: “Could it be that the Necromancer is going to undergo major changes and the developers don’t want us testing it until then?” And many did raise their voices in assent. But then one soul offered a different idea, saying this: “The developers want us to be testing the other parts of the patch and this is the only way to be sure that happens.” And many more did raise their voices in assent. And the speculation reigned, for all that was known for certain was that it would indeed be removed from testing for a time.

And spotteth twice they the smoting of the necromancer from testing before the third hour, and so, the Forumites went forth from Diablo 3, by MOP, to the article, he who brought discussion unto them and the schwag to the memes, and there slew they the opinions, yea, and placed they the bits in little posts. Here endeth the lesson.

Let us praise Blizzard. O Devs,…

And Kadala was seen to wink at the passing nephalem, for she knew that truth, that she would win in the end.

the writing in this article deserves some kind of award.

something like “beta role play of a beta test forum drama incident in retelling” or something :S

Writer — I was trolling the comments probably a year before that (>.>). I got hired in as the West Coast Editor in 2010, then I got a few more title changes along the way and took over as EIC in 2012. <3

ahh nice i must’ve showed up not long behind that last change.

nostalgiaing about it now i seem to recall i came in qqing about gw2 changes while puremallace was still around but ofc being familar with him from aionsource days not in ways he was typically agitating about.

the one clear memory i have of that first time was telling a buddy i used to argue mmo’s with on AS is “it’s nice to have the positive feedback (of the like spam emails)”

before that on AS we had a subforum dedicated to talking other games and i’d get pm’s and such cheering me on but nothing as visceral or immidiate as a bunch of emails telling me people liked my comment.

i think really from that point i was hooked on shooting the shit with people here about mmo’s plus and minus wether or not i got likes on my posts. not that i don’t check sometimes even without the email spam and not that i don’t miss the buzzing of my phone on weekend columns in the morning XD
