You must have exceedingly low standards.

And now everyone is forced to use similar skill trees.

I don't see how you could possibly argue that this is an improvement from the previous situation where you could choose the skill path you desired, even if most people were too lazy to.

All Blizzard did was take something that was clearly being created by third party chinese farmers and tossing it into their game. Kids with mommy's credit card could buy accounts and the most ridiculous items in D2, yet you loved that game didn't you? so how in the hell is D3 any different?
Diablo 2 wasn't like this for everyone. I know people who played it only with others they knew in private games, and never encountered a single farmer, nor auction.

Again, you are implying that taking the worst of the previous games and making it mandatory is somehow an improvement. That's absurd.

Which is exactly why Blizzard can get away with abusing their player base; cultists are generally idiots.

Speak for yourself.

I played quite a bit of Diablo 1, but never purchased Diablo 2 (I played the demo and was bored by the end of it), and don't imagine I'll ever bother with Diablo 3.

I lost interest in over a year ago. Now it's just another WoW clone with an auction house and permanently online. Why don't they just create servers for it so you can play World of Diablocraft?

The trailers look pretty but this is going to be pretty boring with no skill tree selection.

Heh good. Torchlight 2 is everything that Diablo shouldn't be. In terms of looks, at least.

All those neon colored cheerful ass fairy bull**** in my RPG's.
That skill tree is not what's gonna kill Diablo 3, it'll be a cash shop if they implement something of that sort.

That type of mind set is what brought the Duke Nukem fans to where they are right now
Na j/k. I think it's gonna be good. Seeing as how they didnt mess with Starcraft 2 to much.

I'm waiting for the battle chest in 2015 for $20. I hope it will still be online then. I'll get Torchlight 2 in between on a steam sale. He did have some good points though. I'm just curious how well it will do now. A million in a week? A month?

I wonder if there will be a boycott D3 group on steam like with CoD MW2 - you know, the boycott group that had 99% of the members playing MW2 on the day of release?
Cool create the group and add me on steam. You'll never see me playing it and I own both D1 and D2. I've no interest at all. Torchlight 2 will fill the gap left by the lack of a D3 title I want. It's awesome that so many people want to continue to buy this. And I can certainly see things from Blizz's PoV. I'm just shocked so many people make asinine blanket statements like yourself.

D3:
  1. Pay2Win
  2. No Mods
  3. 24/7 Internet Requirement even for single player
  4. Death of Single Player as a result
  5. No Eyefinity/Surround

I'm sure the ignorant people will continue to flame and post various forms of, "Umad Bro?" all over these forums to the people rejecting Blizz's current course with the Diablo franchise. And hey that's fine, as most of us posting our reasons for not purchasing this weren't talking to you anyways.

You see I am a member of that disgruntled old fan base. And I'll vote with my wallet of course. But I also certainly enjoy talking to people who are either like minded or intelligent enough to actually debate the points the we are objecting to rather than most of the drivel the fanbois have tossed out in this thread. Thus the posts that myself and other have put up. I certainly think it is great that Blizz is trying to progress forward with D3, I just hate seeing it at the cost of the things I enjoyed in D2. Lack of LAN I can put aside since I could always use WiFi for MP with friends. Lack of single player? Not so much. Lack of mods? No thanks. And the Pay2Win store sealed the deal.

I've seen the arguments people make on here about D2 items and characters being sold all over the internet and it's true. That doesn't make it right. And Blizzard rolled out the red carpet to that cesspool with the argument, "If we can't beat 'em, may as well get our 10%." Pathetic.

If you want to keep playing Diablo 2 for the next few years, I'm pretty sure you can keep playing Diablo 2. If you think Diablo 2 is old and boring, why would you want more of it in Diablo 3?
