The reason D2 was such a success was not because of balance, or because of great gameplay, it was in part because of the interaction level. You joined a public Baal, Diablo, Cow run, farmed with a group for a while, moved onto PVP, where you chatted (even hurpdurp convo counted as being social), and then at the end of all that life span of a toon, you either got an upgrade that destroyed your build and you remade (thus refreshing the cycle) or got bored with your class, and traded it all off (being social), and purchased a new set (being social), and started the cycle all over again. D3 you log in, and if you click or play with a naga (or other multi button mouse) that would be the last time you would need your keyboard.

Man good memories! I remember rampaging cow and baal runs with my javazon along with a party of fireball sorc, cleric paladin, summoner necromancer, and a spear druid (forgot what else my friend was doing with the druid). We actually banned builds like frozen orb sorc, lightning trap assassins, hammerdins, and really any other class that did massive AOE damage while teleporting around. It was so fun playing with large parties... frown.gif

Well then that took him long enough to realize.... i already knew an AH was a bad idea before the game released... and i still got tricked into buying it frown.gif shame on me.

Anyways Blizzard be quick and make Diablo 4 now... No AH, No gear dependant characters, No stupid randomization in gear, a decent chat channel, Public games with names, Bigger party size, Teleport, AOE spells that don't need to be aimed precisely at the enemy.

And don't balance the crap out of every character..... D3 is pretty boring since it doesn't really matter which character you make they are all pretty much equal.

I loved it. I easily got my money back from purchasing the game in the first week of the auction house. I know other people that made close to $1000 dollars from using it and selling on the forums.

I quit the game before the RMAH even came out and never reinstalled it back so i am pretty sure AH's are not the main pbm here. I also spent nearly 10 years of my life since 1999 playing D1 & 2 (6h-8h a day, 12~18h on weekends) and this one was really not up to them. It has nothing to do with AHs imo, it's the game itself that suck.

The javazon was one of the most overpowered AOE toon out there.... you should have banned yourself by your logic.

My javazon had crap gear. Strangely, my zealot and bowazon were both way better than my javazon. Beyond that I had a blizzard sorc, bonemancer, and hammerdin.

Nice of Jay to admit the auction house was a mistake AFTER they made several million dollars worth of sales. Is that how it works?

Absolutely. Now when they don't remove it they will pull the "players want this feature" card.

To be fair, the next-gen console versions don't have the AH. tongue.gif
