Not really much to defend here. They hyped up an announcement for an solo reveal, which this game didn't need, to a market that this game isn't even for. This game was funded by and was designed primarily for the Chinese market. Similar to the mobile Diablo game. But they decided to show it off to the western market, as if they will care.
