Which, I do know of about a dozen people who did exactly this.

you can pirate Diablo 3? By using some privately hosted server? I'm surprised they liked probably an unpatched version of the game enough to buy RoS.

I have to say I have owned pretty much every blizzard game(even though I was not a happy blizzard fan with the creation/running of a pay to play game), except WoW(never played Hearthstone). I have lost years to Warcraft 2, Starcraft, Warcraft 3(thank you battleships creator), and insane amounts of time on D2. There wasn't anything left for me to do in D2 when I was quit. SC2 came out and they didn't screw it up by basically upgrading the graphics and a few units...awesome. When D3 came out I was hopeful to start my addiction again, I had been clean for years of D2 but I wanted it back. Then D3 hit, and it was slow, but I made a ton in the auction house, so I kept at it. Made one of every character and got all of them through the game, then with profits from the auction house, I bought 3 of my friends the game and got them to 60 and through it. But the whole time if felt, empty, at some around the end of Sept Borderlands 2 was coming and I played it and never looked back at D3, and never missed.

So if you read that..RoS, my addiction has returned. Those old auction house funds got me to buy the game for those 3 friends who just grumbled "that game again?"(they were not D2 players). Now fast forward a week or two, I have punch in countless hours, one friend has gone from 60 to 70 to 56 paragon levels all on her own, another friend has gone from 60 to 70 to 18 paragon levels, and last guy has gone from 60 to 70 to 12 paragon levels.

They made this game what it should have been all along. I get the anger over vanilla's being horrible, but unless you try RoS, then you are reviewing vanilla and nothing more can be added to the topic. Just my thoughts, I could be wrong...probably am.

you should try hearthstone. ipad beta just went out if you have that device!

i played back in the beta and it was my first TCG that I played...it's actually quite fun for a casual game.

No no no, we were discussing Diablo II and how the expansion Lord of Destruction outsold the vanilla version of the game by just a little bit.

If I was going to pick one glaring issue D3 still has, this is probably it. Sure, I think the game is much better and I am really enjoying it atm but they didn't do anything to improve the random map grid system. I still feel like upon entering a map 70% of the time I know where to go and I know the general layout of the area.

1. When you say better gameplay, are you talking about the damage system, spells, dynamics, fluidity?
2. Passive skills as in the skill tree?
3. Better polish in terms of what? Fluidity, graphics, bugs?

These games are in two completely different genres. That's like asking why do you play COD then you could be playing Final Fantasy?


The reason I have been playing Diablo 3 over LoL lately is, I don't have to rely on random people to achieve my goal in the game. I get to keep the gear that I get every time I log in. Finding legos makes my heart jump a little bit in the hopes that it'll roll godly. If it doesn't I get a chance to make one of my other legos better with a reroll.

I will say this man, I have a level 70 Duelist and been playing a while... But, the game and some of its charchaters can become EXTREMELY unbalanced... Chaos Inoculation With that one armor that does Chaos DMG is cheap as hell!! Walk up to the guy and die. POE, is a good game, but it is vulnerable to getting owned by newer games just like it. I like the game a lot , but why is it so insanely hard when you group with people? Why do builds have to have so much? Then in a team your build is totally useless
