No.

It's Diablo.

You probably didn't play Diablo 1 & 2.

But on "Normal" mode, the only way to die was if you either warped to a area way above your level, or you stood there and died. THe series has always been very easy, up until the higher difficulties.

I agree about runewords, but everyone just google the runeword list anyways...

It still was fun and added a little something to the game, now you just chose between skill and runes to do different effect you dont see them getting stronger.

This guy gets it.


Its still Diablo. I spent thousands of hours playing D1 and 2. No exaggeration. D3 is just as much Diablo as the rest of them. So many of the changes are exactly what we wanted fixed back in D2 days.




@Panther, Runewords in diabo 2 didn't exist until the expansion a year later.

Cool.

I just know there are a great many people that are (foolishly) comparing the D3 beta, to the D2 that exists after 10 years of patching. It bugs me.


I think D3 kicks ass already. I can't wait to see what they can do with it after a couple years of inevitable fixes.


Edit: Just was thinking about how great D1 was online. Within 5 minutes of being online you had goodly plate the whale armor, and kings knight sword of haste, it was terribly broken.

100% agree! What i mentioned in my earlier posts is things that i wish they add put in d3 but a game can't be 100% to the liking of each person so i think they did a pretty good job in d3 and we will see what they are gonna do for the future expansions pack may be they'll add 2 other characters tongue.gif

And to make it even more specific for this weekend. It's a stress test first and foremost. Then it's an open beta. But still mainly for stress testing. And boy did it get stressed, we killed it the minute it came online, lol.

Plenty of us enjoyed the BF3 beta despite the choice of map. I had a blast in that beta.
Same with this beta. It becomes a grind after lvl 9 when most of the enemies become OHK's and there's only a couple hours worth of gameplay (per character), but trying it out and learning the gameplay mechanics is easily as valuable. I've had plenty of fun.

While I like diablo 3 after playing the beta I don't believe that is a valid excuse. Normally, you can expect all feature in the previous game to be in the next game, but I'm guessing crafting system is to replace the runewords and cube.

My thought on beta:
While the crafting system is good and it does pretty much the same thing, it just don't sound as awesome as the runewords. Runeword is about using magical rune to in the right order to combine into a powerful spell that enhance a item. Crafting is about asking a blacksmith to forge a item for you. I don't think any one would think the latter sound more awesome.
The health globe didn't bother me as much I thought. Remember how we all rage about it.
The combat feels more exciting knowing that you can't just TP or pull the plug to avoid death like in D2.
While I actually like the art style it is still not dark enough, I know the Loeric Torture Chamber is darker according to the Blizzcon player but I never played that.
Not much to do when level up, definitely the worst part. While assigning attribute in D2 is pretty mindless, at least you have to do the clicking.
The shape of outside area is not random, hate it.
The levels uses Torchlight style generator which means you will see everything tile eventually, again bad.
