Blizzard president Mike Morhaime offers a post-mortem of Diablo III.
Despite Blizzard's work to resolve issues in Diablo III, the studio acknowledges "it's always possible that further issues will crop up," according to a post-mortem posted on the official battle.net forum.
"While things have by and large been running smoothly for several weeks now, various game-related issues have come up that we have either already responded to or are continuing to investigate (such as the latency issue some of you are experiencing) and make adjustments for," wrote Blizzard co-founder Mike Morhaime.
"Rather than address every subject individually, I'll just say that even as we work to address or resolve current issues, it's always possible that further issues will crop up."
Morhaime goes on to detail the additional improvements users will see in patch 1.0.4, including changes to promote "build diversity" which will offer buffs to underpowered class abilities, as well as adding new Legendary items. Interface updates, including improvements that will allow users to easily view friends achievements, join games more quickly, and communicate more efficiently are also underway, as well as updates to the auction house to provide better seach functionality and information to users via tooltips and notices.
"We know the auction house isn't perfect, but with your help and feedback, we'll be able to continue making it a better experience for those who choose to use it," Morhaime adds.
He also emphasizes the studio's decision to include always-online requirements helps Blizzard battle cracks, and while it does not guarantee copy protection, the team is yet to find any fully functional cracks for Diablo III.
Diablo III released earlier in May.
