Diablo 3 players have yet again been denied the Player-vs-Player feature by Blizzard. Waiting since the game’s release back in May, players will have to wait a little while longer now since Blizzard has scrapped their initial version of PvP.
Reason being that Blizzard did not feel it carried high quality experience. The developers are now back to the drawing board and figuring it out.
Jay Wilson, the game’s Director talked about the PvP development in a new post and why it was scrapped.
Simply fighting each other with no other objectives or choices to make gets old relatively quickly. We’ve brought a lot of people in to try out Team Deathmatch and while some found it entertaining, most of our testers didn’t feel like it was something they’d want to do beyond a few hours.
At least we can figure out from the episode that Blizzard is working on the matter and hopefully we’ll see the addition of quality PvP next year.
