So I just got a diable 3 invite played for a bit. Can someone explain the game to me?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
When D3 beta was announced i was looking all over the net for a clear explanation of what diablo was. Warcraft 3, SC 2, and WoW are the only blizzard games I've played. So I played up till level 3 with a wizard and I'm confused what the objective in this game is. Is it basically a single player world of warcraft?

Have you never ever played a single action rpg?

It's nothing like WoW, to be honest I'm not sure how to compare it to anything, because from the sound of it you've never played a game in this genre before. I'm sure someone will be able to explain it lol...

The objective of this game is to hack n slash your way trough the lvl's untill you reach Diablo. After you've done that you can up the difficulty and hack n slash your way trough till Diablo again and find better gear after that up the difficulty again and again... Untill you have uberleet gear.
And on the way you do other quests n stuff and kill other bosses.

I didn't apply it just randomly came. It was checked off in the Beta in my bnet account but I never really knew or cared what diablo was. And now that I have the beta and played it for a bit. Im confused as to what kind of game it is.

I'd have to disagree with this after playing the beta. They hold your hand through everything. Stats are automatically put in, all you have to do is left click for skill 1 or right click for skill 2. Then put the next skills you get on an action bar. It's really dumbed down from Diablo 2.

People always seem to go down this path. It's not dumbed down, it's been taken into a smarter direction. Diablo 2 wasn't any harder, sure you had to put points into stats and skills, but in the end everyone would just google the cookie cutters specs and copy them. 1 point into each pre-req then dump the rest into your main skill. And with stats, enough points in strength and dexterity to wear your gear and dump the rest into stamina. It really wasn't any harder, with D3 the development team took a step in the right direction. Allowing you to choose any skills you want, and making them all viable makes for a way better playing experience. Rather than copying a cookie cutter spec and casting frozen orb 999,999 times over.


I always find it funny that people complain no matter what. If the development team does nothing new, people complain that this is the same rehashed crap with nothing new. If the development teams adds in new things, people complain that its not the same as the old one.

Because it is a invite only beta. How is someone with 0 concept of the diablo series (or apparently any other rpg/mmo besides WoW) supposed to provide intelligent constructive criticism as well as help blizzard produce a game that millions have been waiting for 10 years for? I'm not attacking this guy, I'm just playing devils advocate to why good game franchises don't continue to be as good as they have been in the past. If diablo 3 was only tested by people who had never seen or heard of diablo 1 and 2 how good of a game would it be? complete crap for everyone the game was initially made for.

Then again as long as people like this who have never seen it before are intelligent in the process of an rpg, maybe they can make the game better for new users. who knows.

Can't you argue that it could be used to draw new customer's in? Because say if I end up liking the Beta. Then they have an extra 40-60 dollars in their pocket. Besides I could just buy a year of WoW and get it that way too.
