Anyone else hate Jay Wilson with a passion?

I wanna know if its just me or not.

I admired him for taking the time to do developer interveiws, something a lot of devs dont care to do. But many of the excuses he gives for the developers shortcomings come as underhanded insults and offend me every time I hear them.

Its not healthy to want to please everyone, devs know this, most people know this. But you shouldnt outright insult a playerbase that is single handidly responsible for keeping the previous title in the licensed franchise alive and running for 12 years (especially when your outright watering down the game mechanics, one of the many 'improvements').

Its like every statement he makes is qualified by saying "Well Diablo 3 is not perfect, but Diablo 2 sucked"

I don't even know who Jay Wilson is, or care. I tend not to watch interviews from the game development team.

Wanna give some examples? I know that when Force asked him about certain things, he responded saying that in Diablo 2, if you didn't do cookie cutter builds, your character basically sucked and they don't want that in D3. And he isn't wrong.

I do find him a bit abrasive sometimes.

He's pretty much exactly correct in everything he says about D2, and its refreshing and encouraging that he's not thinking of D2 as some flawless untouchable legend

D2 had a lot of BAD systems it succeeded in spite of. If you can't see that you're not being either honest or reasonable.

This is true, its unfortunate that instead of improving upon them they went a different route.
