Bashiok took some time off from being a Diablo III miniboss to hit the forums and provide some insight into recent issues with the servers.

You people are strange. The #1 question we've seen regarding Mists of Pandaria is: Will we get an 11th character slot for our monk? How will I have every single class on one server? Do I need to delete my bank alt? As initially stated by Bashiok and confirmed by J. Allen Brack, production direct...

To make a long story short, Bashiok worried that players' expectations were getting all out of proportion. Bashiok makes one heck of a good point. Diablo III is going to be awesome -- but it...

In case you hadn't already heard, there won't be a BlizzCon 2012. While I personally have never gone, many of the staffers here have and are sad pandas that they won't get to this year, as I gather are a lot of you as well.

For some time, the Diablo franchise has been touted by PC-gaming purists as one of the landmark reasons that PC gaming is superior to all others. Well, not anymore! Though Blizzard has made numerous statements that they were "seriously considering" a console version of the title, CM Bashiok twe...
