God, I was hoping the rumors about a D2 remaster + New D2 expansion were true. But alas, this China centric cell phone garbage is what we got.

always happens when MBAs start running a company that was founded by people who are actually knowledgeable about the industry.

just one of many examples: henry ford was a machinist and his cars were revolutionary and also constantly improving. the current ceo studied finance and so naturally they've been turning out essentially the same thing (little bigger little smaller, maybe usb port added) for years, which makes sense because he knows nothing about cars or making stuff.

wc3 sucked. the only thing good about reforged is that its compatible with wc3. so you can discount bin dive and save yourself like 45 of the 49.99 reforge is gona cost.

1 way that could happen is if Youtube determined that the downvotes were from some kind of bot farm.

The asian dude who announced it looked like he wanted to cry when he realized how hard he was bombing. I actually feel kinda bad for him, because this seems very much like something some corporate dickhead above him was pushing for, but they didn't have the balls to go out on stage and take shit for it. They'll just be taking all the money this makes, while this guy tries his best to live this down.

Don't feel sorry for him: Wyatt is a senior at Blizzard. He's in a position of power and influence, and his opinions matter. From a organizational perspective, Wyatt has failed to take responsibility for the franchise that he is essentially in charge of. If he cannot be the one to hold the franchise to the standard that their customers want, he should not hold that position in the company, and thats the harsh reality of it.

Don't forget that Blizzard is no longer completely autonomous. They're owned by the house that annual Call of Duty built, so maybe a mobile MTX-ridden game shouldn't be so surprising.
