Blizzard has learned all of its mistakes with D2...so now we are getting a upgraded version with 12 years of what not to do.

I agree. Except for one thing (a few I won't mention): Chat lobby.

Are you kidding me Blizz?

Diablo 2 Chat:
450

Diablo 3 Chat:
305

That is the poorest excuse for a chat lobby I've ever seen. No color. Tiny corner of the screen.

Blizzard is trying to make their games not a social experience apparently. I've heard the SC2 chat rooms are garbage as well.

I just don't understand...mad.gif

I think the chat lobby is one of those things that is just left to last and possibly even after release to perfect. I agree tho..that is bland and boring.

*edit* maybe they are still working on a proper spam filter or a many lobby chat lobby. God i hated reading text at the speed of light just to have to scroll up 25 pages to see something I read 1/4 second earlier.

And unfortunately, Bashiok already stated that Chat will not change by release. frown.gif

Maybe most people have lost interest in hack/slash RPGs? I will buy the game at launch either way.

The only reason why people call it boring is because its easy. It is the first part of the first act on normal difficulty. There is no challenge so its "boring".

That's it, nothing different. Even Deckard Cain's voice is the same. They only really changed the layout a bit and believe it or not dumbed it down even more than D2. It does get boring rather quickly.

Why would they change Cain's voice? >_>

If only i was able to play the beta a bit frown.gif
But ohh well i'll let them surprise me when its released i guess untill then i'll fire up D2 every now and then.

But indeed that chat lobby is a bit bland and small.... but hey a few weeks ago i asked somebody if there would be a chat lobby and stuff and they said no so this is a good thing for me seeing that. I was so dissapointed when they told me that.
