    The "I told you so" thread.

    Simple Rules:
    In one sentence/statement (think of twitter, 120char max) make a statement that you feel will be true within a few months of D3's release.
    Check back when the thread gets Necro'd around that time and see if you can say "I told you so".
    Any thread that is "edited by" after the game's release is null and void. I'll start:

    You'll use only 2-3 skills almost exclusively, aside from some specific resistance/gimmick boss, the rest will be "useless" in comparison.

    Diablo 3 will be the best game of the year.

    The story and lore will be pretty generic cliché stuff, with very little depth; there won't be a feeling of an epic battle between hell and heaven.

    The RMAH will explode to extreme proportions and pretty much be the next big thing that ever hit the internet gaming.

    People who claimed they will never touch the RMAH will all use it extensively.

    Supply on the RMAH will vastly outstrip demand causing prices to freefall to nothing, ultimately causing the RMAH to be deemed a failure.

    Thread quickly derails because the RMAH was brought up.

    Warning to people posting in this thread: Keep it civil. This is a warning to anyone posting in this thread. Was going to delete it based on the title, but it went in a different direction than I expected.

    My prediction: This thread will not be kept civil and Bad Ash (or another admin/moderator) will end up locking or deleting it.

    It would be really interesting if searching the archives you find posts of yours that called something correctly. I don't mean "The skill system could well change before release", something more specific like the demon hunters resource system for example.

    Okay. I predict at some point (xpac?) the skill limit will be raised back to 7.

    This.
    EDIT: Clarification. The idea will explode with success, the implementation in D3 may or may not work.

    And

    Everyone who said that they are no longer fans of Blizzard and refuse to buy the game will in fact buy the game and play it everyday.

    Re: The "I told you so" thread.

    Keep in mind that making a prediction that can be proven makes for a much more interesting thread. Generalized things like "everyone will ...." are unprovable, so you can't really "i told you so" to it in the future. Saying that " XXX will be a huge success" can be proven, with sales figures / press statements.

    and of course being specific as Elly said.

    Re: The "I told you so" thread.

    Prediction:

    Old time players find D3 lacking in substance, yearn for D3 (not this one) to someday be release. New and younger players love it.


    or better yet..

    Significant in volume, not necessarily size, group of players leave D3 after a few months attaching to <insert game> as the true successor.

    And my all time favorite will be:

    It took this long for bots?

    Diablo 3 will beat World of Warcrafts record.

    Edit:

    Quote from the future: "Ohh my god, this new Blizz game has cartoony graphics, its a D3 ripoff".

    Re: The "I told you so" thread.

    PVP becomes wildly popular and they start balancing for an Esport.

    I hope that above is not true or at least keep a full seperate set of variables as to not destroy the PVE game.

    The beta last a shockingly short 2months and the game launches with major issues

    Just realized my only 2 predictions were very negative I think this forum is starting to rub off on me.

    ...and Blizzard quickly responds with a flurry of excellent patches within days. There, now it's more positive ;)

    Re: The "I told you so" thread.

    Blizzard already confirmed that there is PvP data and PvE data, so if they wanted they can balance PvP without changing anything in PvE.

    Wave of Light shown at Blizzcon 2010 is the base form and not a rune version.

    The Sword and Board class archetype will not added into the game in either expansions.
