[IGN/WC] Blizzard Planning to Remaster and Re-release Warcraft 3, Diablo 2, and Starcraft - Page 8

post #71 of 136
I have some questions.

1. Is these just an offline remaster for the single player?
2. Is it the current game being UPDATED or is it going to be a whole new game in total as in there will be an online Diablo 2 old and online new?

please dude just because the iPhone did not need a crazy amount of ram to actually perform good. It's funny how Samsung has to throw 4 gigs+ of ram in their phones to compete vs a 1-2gb iphone.

Here's the Diablo 2 remaster I'd love to see:

1. Higher resolution so it does not have to run in an 800x600 window.
2. Add some more runewords, set items and uniques.
3. Add an entirely new act (would love to see what the world is like after the worldstone is destroyed)
4. Possibly add a new character class

EDIT: And the new character class really isn't all that important to me. They could add 20 new classes and I'd probably still just run through every time with a frenzybarb (so much fun!)

The flaw with the game is the entire leveling / item system, and you can't just fix that with an active game. All the items in the game, and the experience were designed to support and be supported by the AH. It was obvious, everyone hated it and to deal with removing the AH they jacked up the drop rate of uniques and sets to the point where its not fun or interesting in the way D2 was. When everything became account bound, it was just a single player / small group version of WoW in the diablo universe.

Although i hoped they would do Diablo 1 as well since that is a bit of a pain to run on anything above xp.

I'm fine with it and most likely buy them too - I lost my SC and WC3 keys...

As someone who plays Diablo 3 several hours every night, I'm going to have to completely disagree with your analysis tongue.gif. The removal of the auction house was the best thing for the game. With the auction house, you either played "day trader" and watched for items people were selling low, buy them, and then sell them high yourself... and never played the actual game... or you used the "dual wield credit card" method of buying the good gear.

With the Auction house removed, you went back to people having to actually play the game themselves in order to get good items. There's also greater rifts, giving you a challenge to try to complete higher levels, and a leaderboard to gauge your progress against everyone else.

However, I hope they keep Diablo II's gameplay like it is. It should have trading, no account bound items, and have a server lobby with named servers you can join, instead of some faceless autojoin system like Diablo 3 and other new games gravitate towards.

So "remaster" means it's gonna get the AoE 2 HD treatment (1080p and above support and some bug fixes) right ?

i've actually never really played D2, so i'm likely to purchase the remaster rather then get the old one with dated graphics.

I'm confused how you think I'm somehow advocating for the AH?

I said the game has now reached the pinnacle of what it can be, and its crap because of the way they had to deal with the AH closure. Drop rates are too high, and to compensate they have no trading economy to keep people playing the game, because with current rates.. everyone would be geared out on all of their builds for all the top classes in weeks. The only way to trade gear is if you're part of the 4 that got the drop. It just doesn't feel like the spiritual successor to Diablo 2, its a decent dungeon RPG.. but it really isn't the same feeling game, just a mostly mindless smack em up game to kill a little bit of time here and there.

I have had at least 1 topish geared character in each season since they started.

tl;dr - the diablo 3 grind isn't rewarding, getting even the rare unique you want will likely result in a forgotten soul because you have like 10 different affixes and you hardly never get the combo which is actually useful.

But it's an offline game essentially so it really doesn't matter poop what gear you have. At least in Diablo 2 you could farm items to sell them to people for better gear. That was what made the start of a fresh ladder so fun. What's the point in trying to get the best gear this ladder if you can't even sell it. Diablo 3 no go
