That being said... I do feel that Blizzard did a better job with D3 than D2 when it comes to class balances. I feel that each class can perform the same task (aoe, single target, stun etc), they just execute them differently. In some cases, the skill mechanics are almost identical with variances in visuals.

Very well put. Totally agree.

Definitely. I feel Blizzard has done a great job balancing the classes making each viable for (most) every situation while still retaining uniqueness. We shall see upon launch how late game goes.

You know what will happen in Inferno. Wiz will run up and dump everything they have on the monster getting it to half life, run out of resources and die. The Barbarian will run up and output a steady amount of damage. Then they will die as well while only getting the mob to half life.
Blizzard: The classes are balanced!! They each got the mob to half life before they died biggrin.gif.

Bashiok seems to be wishing that he can take back what he said about inferno. It seems to me that inferno is as difficult as they have been talking about but they seem to think that some unintended exploit might be found to make inferno easier.
Quote:
Can I totally go back on what I said before?
Ok, not totally, but I think there’s some distinction to be made for ‘legitimate’ ability to beat Inferno, in that, we expect there could be ways, potentially exploits, potentially clever but cheesy mechanics, that could maybe allow a player to complete Inferno fairly quickly. The bet stands as-is, but I think if it could be revised it would be “X time before it becomes farmable”, meaning someone can legitimately kill the end boss over and over and over without needing to take advantage of an exploit, or loophole, or some other thing we don’t intend to be possible.

Of course we’ll try to address any such issue as quickly as possible, but it’s feasible that the first Inferno clear will be through use of unintended means. Technically still valid per the wording of the bet, but I think most can agree would go against the spirit of it.

The Diablo II (2) ladder is going to reset May 2nd. I think I'm going to play it as a good warmup for DIII. Maybe in the 2 weeks before release I'll be able to get rid of some items on D2JSP and get my forum gold up a bit more. Hm.

Just read that at incgamers. Give you an idea of the impact that Blizzard has on the gaming world. Diablo III is a big, big deal.

Well that's a shame. I would have bought SpellForce 2: Faight if they released it in May but I guess I'll have to buy it later. Really good series and the games are loooooong. Still playing my way through SF1 tongue.gif.

Me too. I could have sworn I read somewhere that they already have 2 million preorders but I can't find it. Maybe I dreamed that.

I wish TERA launched sooner. Only going to get 2 weeks in before D3 comes out and I know I am not going to be playing it if I have D3.
