There's been a bit of spark on the forums regarding stash size, and it's an excellent talking point and definitely is going to be one of the biggest issues VERY shortly after release.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4365752540

So a few beta patches ago Blizzard decided that "Hey, we really don't need all this stash space!" and reduced the number of expandable stash tabs for accounts. Their reasoning?
Quote:
We reevaluated average character and account storage space requirements, and found it necessary to ensure we could handle what we anticipate will be a large amount of data very quickly after release.

"Because storing items is that intensive on the database guys!" This sounds like a very poor excuse to me. They're bound to increase the stash size eventually, it's inevitable. Whether it be by microtransaction or expansion pack, it will happen.

I know that I will run out of stash space within a month or two after release. I love to save items for other characters, and since it's all one shared stash I will probably sort it into a tab for each character as best as I can (would've been perfect with 5 tabs in the previous build, but now there are 3).

What do you guys think?

Depending on how much I get into the game, I would buy another copy just for more stash space. lol

I am considering this as well, however, of course I would rather just have more tabs redface.gif

Hey guys there is a 'competition' on the BlizzardCS twitter account for Diablo 3 beta keys. I just missed today's key frown.gif, but I will keep trying.

With Diablo 3 out in a month I've given up on getting or caring about beta keys. That said good luck for those still trying.

Another +1. People have been influenced so heavily by the explosion of WoW that they fear everything Blizzard does is influenced by it.

I'm willing to bet they reduced the number of tabs so they could increase it later on with an expansion. Wouldn't surprise me at all if this were the case.

IGN has a barbarian spotlight video up, a must watch. I haven't seen some of these monsters/environments and there is a BIG monster at the end of the vid. Holy crap.

IGN sucks ass.

That video sucks ass.

Barbarian Spotlight video.

2+ minute video.

Less than 15 seconds of gameplay is shown.


Rest of the video is some guy talking out his ass. Seriously annoying. I have such an issue with people who dub over videos like that...we don't care about your comments, what you think. We want to watch the video, see the content...listen to the in-game effects and see the game without a bunch of ad's plastered around it.

That video is 1 minute and 45 seconds of them talking about IGN.

....................................?

The vid is 3:23. About 2 minutes of it is gameplay. This guy is clearly within Blizzard so I don't know why you are complaining about what he says? It is a Barbarian spotlight vid. I see 0 ads?

Did you watch a different video or something?

Their video "reviews" are the same way. I'm not sure how you can review a game in a 90 second video.

That was a sweet video. I didn't have sound but lots of new footage there! thumb.gif

Edit: and apparently people didn't like it...?

Perhaps it was better to have watched it without sound tongue.gif
