Diablo 3 – EU: “Ask the Devs” Premier

ask the devs

As of today, Blizzard is introducing Ask the Devs to the players, an informal Q&A series which the dev’s team will be hosting monthly in the official forums.

Blizzard chose the topic, players chose the questions. By doing this new feature, the devs give the players the opportunity to put their questions to the table, but also they will track through the forums voting system which questions are more popular, so its more urgent to be answered.

How It Works:

  • Each month, we’ll select a new Ask the Devs topic and post what the topic is ahead of time in the forums.
  • On the date and time specified in the forum post, we’ll unlock the thread and you’ll be able to submit your questions on the chosen topic.
  • When the thread hits its cap (500 posts), no more questions will be allowed.
  • At that point, we’ll ask you to use the thumbs-up button to vote for the questions you’d like to see answered.
  • After about 24 hours, we’ll lock the thread, at which time you will no longer be able to vote.
  • We’ll then look for the posts with the most votes in every region and pass them on to the Diablo III development team.
  • Approximately a week later, we’ll provide you a list of answers delivered directly from the developers.


  • Only one question per post.
  • Stay on topic. Questions that don’t relate to the chosen topic (even if highly-rated) won’t be sent to the developers.
  • Discussion posts are not allowed! We ask that you only post questions in the Ask the Devs thread. If you would like to discuss related topics, please do so in another thread.
  • You can vote for questions at any time while the thread is unlocked.
  • A highly-rated post does not mean it will be answered, but we’ll do our best to answer as many questions as possible.
  • “Dislike” votes don’t count.


  • Please don’t post or vote for questions you know we won’t answer. We’re not going to use these Q&As to announce new projects, expansions, or release dates. By the same token, we’re also not going to answer questions that touch on subjects outside of the game and its design.
  • Keep your question concise. One to three sentences should be plenty to explain background and ask a question.
  • Vote for as many questions as you like.
  • All “Like” votes count. While you can’t see the vote tally, we can. Even if a post is already highly rated, your vote still means something to that question (potentially) being answered.


The first round of questions will be opened Tuesday, January 29, at 19:00 p.m. CET. The topic is Patch 1.0.7, so make sure to bookmark this thread and get ready to “Ask the Devs”!
