2018’s Pokemon Go Fest has a strategy to avoid last year’s problems. Also, here’s a video on the ethics of the game from PAX East (it’s actually pretty cool):

Good to see Diablo getting some love at last in HotS. I play it with my kids and they have so little respect for him they refer to him as ‘Dibbley’ and they leave him until last when targeting enemy heroes.

Whereas I still remember him from Diablo I where he was… wait a sec… hang on, he wasn’t much of a fight in that either! Poor guy.


Diable played well is already really awesome.
I shudder to think what it will take to kill him now


Maybe it’s just his AI that needs tweaking then – we usually play against bots, and on the level we play at the rest of the bots put up a decent fight but Diablo just seems to meander around, occasionally managing to throw one of us over a wall if he’s really lucky, but usually doing not much until he’s the only one left. Then the kids pick him off :)
