Omg, they are here as well... Wait, what am I surprised about, they're everywhere these days... Blizard fanbois incoming, everyone get your flamethrower and regroup!
Jokes aside, Blizes are living on hype, It's just players who make the hype for them, that's it, end of "Blizard is special" theory.
Frankly, best their game I know is Lost Vikings. Yes, I played D1, D2, WC2, WC3, and You-know-what. (I'm not big on SC though...)
They all have more flaws than an average person cares to remember.
You want a "working game on day 1"? Not untill you get yourself a timetraveling device.
Anyway, may I ask where have you seen one?
Dont tell me "Blizard did that", they didn't. Sure they do support their games, but they never rolled-out a day 1 miracle. And don't even get me started on the effectiveness of their support, sure they work hard, but result of their work is so-so.
I don't know why various devs keep makeing that mistake and not learnig form others, but they do... You see, currently nearly every DG player got his issues with the game, and as I recon most of them have major issues. For them, any mention of new content atm (other than "No new content till it shines") is a spit in the face. I dunno about wheres hows and whens of it I just saw players reactions to such things many times already, and it's not even close to being neutral, let alone positive.
I belive SD can sort out their mess, I doupt GPG can. And I'm sure they'd never do if that was just them working on demigod (I saw DS, I saw it's expansion, I saw DS2, saw DS2-BW... Progress? Wot's dat? And don't even get me started on SS). What I fear the most - there's gonna be no playerbase by the time DG outclasses DotA. (In common oppinion that is, I'm not a DotA fan, not even DotA player).
I talked to a number of "Illegal players", taking aside those who'd pirate their food if that was an option, most of them think this game is not worth buying as it is now , "maybe some heroes and a number of patches later" was an average reply. Sad really, I'd like to see this game flourish.
Still that makes a point clear - Starforce is not what helps aginst piracy, qualitiy IS.
To make a long story short - once connectivity is not an issue, don't forget there are other issues.
