Seems like we've hit the all-time low, doesn't it? Maximum burnout after grinding every day after the launch, combined with frustrating game and patch-decisions, and the endgame standstill. On top of that most people have given up, just waiting for the savior patch that might fail pretty hard if the expectations keep rising. I'm fairly certain that it will get better, though. Say what you will but the game is addictive and there's a ton of people out there that find it hard to deal with addiction or simply don't bother confronting it. In other words there will continue to be people playing the game, buying and selling items, even if the game itself isn't exactly fixed. The buff to legendaries, successful or not, will bring at least a short term boost to the economy with people frantically trying to make a quick buck. The pause between now and the next patch will also refresh most people, be it casuals or hardcore gamers. As for the long term, PvP will undoubtedly be another solid boost to economy. It will also in my opinion be the most definitive answer to the big question - whether Diablo 3 will live strong or fade away. What are your observations and predictions (be it specific or general)?
