Nobody even wants to answer for the actions given, no responsibility at all. If this is the kind of game you all want to support, be my guest. But I refuse to support this company any longer. I got told I had an attitude problem just for asking why they put me on mute and changed the names of one of my characters. That was the end of the line for me.

all of the mods (not devs) are volunteers. they've been around the game for a pretty long while now and are generally pretty reasonable people. that said, there are 2 "tiers" of muting. and i believe mods can only do up to a 12hr mute? anything longer then that are done by actual employee's of GGG and they would have a really good reason (with chat log to back that up) there are a few similar complaints in the GGG forum that when people started questioning what exactly was said, the people who were muted started be become very vague only to be proven that they deserved the mute by mods when they posted the actual chat log of the offense.

generally, if you don't act like an arse or make yourself look like a spammer, you wont be muted. posting links(www.????.com) etc... is generally not allowed since that opens doors for gold spammers to start killing the game chat with crap like that. other then that. the mods are players just like us. they love the game. they've been around closed beta for over a year(or longer) and have earned the respect of the closed beta people. GGG will not allow their game to be ruined by volunteers so they are careful when selecting who they want wearing the blue font smile.gif

i'm saying this because there WAS a particular case during closed beta where the player base did believe the mods have stepped out of lines and bordering abuse of power. (involving jeweller orbs for those who remember) and i'm sure GGG have since learned their lesson on setting guidelines for the mods. as for your name being changed... what WAS the name you had originally? do you really feel the name is appropriate enough to post it here so fellow OCN members can comment on it? or do you think you might be slammed and laughed at for complaining that it got changed ? biggrin.gif

No advtantage. Just a lot more fun imho because you have to think critically about what your doing and the moves you are going to make. Plus, if you die in HC your toon goes to default league anyway...

Some people may not be aware but closed beta was the last character wipe GGG will do. All open beta characters and gear will remain. The only thing that may happen is a complete skill reset, if over time, there is enough changes for GGG to warrant it.

The amount of choice in this game is really amazing. Skills being tied to gems makes it so easy to try something completely new, without the hassle of having to level a new character just to see if you would even enjoy X ability.

Once GGG gets a chance to breath from the OB launch you will start to see leagues (ladders) that aren't your typical ladder resets. The leagues could be an hour, 3 hours or weeks long

Cutthroat and turbo leagues were some fun times in closed beta.

Vall has been described as the hardest boss in the game. Slayer of the 6 highest ranked hardcore players and the joke of every soft-core player with portal scrolls.

I think Path of Exile's environment is part of what people were expecting from D3. But D3 added rainbows. Not saying that D3 environment is bad but I like PoE's dark and gloomy atmosphere.

Coming from such a small company, I've really been impressed with this game so far. I've never played D2, but I did play D3 for a week or 2 before I lost interest. I think the passive talent tree and the skill gems provide an enormous amount of flexibility and I'm really looking forward to some of the Leagues they've talked about coming to fruition. Overall a really cool game smile.gif
