It's been like that since post-release. Diablo 3 was like a funding appeal at a shareholder meeting: "hey guis we ned $50m to fund 3 games but wil maek you $300m dollers". But in essence the community got sweet FA in return.

It's been a big issue since Greater Rifts have been in place: why are they not the same, open maps with large density as normal Rifts? Why does it always lag? Why do you bring in unavoidable damage? Why? Why? Why?

Blizzard doesn't want us to play Diablo 3 but instead purport that they are actually engaging with the community by "adapting changes to help us". Granted, Blizzard have been reasonably quick to hotfix game-breaking issues as far as exploits go: but they don't fix the disparity issue.

We don't want classes that rotate FOTM like WoW to keep the game fresh; we don't want to be eschewed towards Sets that provide gross 2000% weapon damage, but Blizzard seems to think we do. No, I think Blizzard seems to think that the power creep is needed because they can't provide fresh ideas for items.

Trying to get a decent map in GR60 is tiresome: I've spent over 100 tokens trying to get a map that is reasonable to complete. It's impossible when, even with Unity, that Mortar is balanced in a cave map; or Champions with Frozen affix spawn its ground effect over 2 or more screens' worth of map is balanced. Very frustrating.

Considering D3 has been a two-time fee, I think most of us have gotten our money's worth and then some. I mean I can understand how other games get more love where people either pay monthly, micro-transactions generate revenue to push the game further, etc. The fact that we do get relatively big updates several times a year is pretty cool. It does suck to have to go FotM, but I suppose it keeps it fresh enough to get us back for more.

As for GR60 or GRxx, if you are having to try that hard to find a perfect GR then you should investigate your build or how others are doing it. I'm sure there are some tweaks here and there that can be done and it will click. E.g. - in S3 I was having a helluva time with barbarian over a certain GR until I tweaked a few things here and there - all of a sudden I got through that plateau and could do GR 5 times higher and more.

I assume you've seen Crazy's posts as the new hawtness in 4p. I'm assuming the dynamics are being worked out and eventually the LB will show more. Once people understand how to minimize the lag (Crazy has some pointers) it will improve. I might have to go make me one, possibly with he help of the C9k service. biggrin.gif

Okay, that's pretty funny. I like how someone, probably a bud of his, keeps whispering 'DUMBASS' over and over again. hahaha!

I think it's time for me to stop playing for a bit lol. I'm making some great progress with school and should graduate this April. So until I get closer to that final date, I will have to stop playing vidja games. I will keep in touch and what-not but no more gaming for a bit.

I have felt the same at times, I graduate at the end of February, but just can't get away from Diablo for some reason. I don't even really know what exactly it is about the game that is so enticing for me, it certainly can't be the award winning story, or balanced play mechanics.
Best of luck to you though, and congrats

^I hear ya, and don't know what the pull is either (I'm sure most of us don't). These are questions that ought not be asked!!! tongue.gif

I was hitting a plateau a couple weeks ago but for some reason one thing or another will spur me on. E.g. - I've been multi-boxing like a mofo since late last week. Mostly focusing on my kid's acct.

congrats to both of ya's!!! thumb.gifthumb.gif

Blast from the past videos I thought I'd share to show some of you new school guys how much different D3 was:

When I first discovered Spin to Win perma Wrath was a thing:
My gear I was selling, which was worth an okay amount back then (look how awful it is):
A Bola DH build MP10 viable (was extremely impressive back then, esp to tank this kind of damage as DH):

All of that is gone now, because only builds that are "fun" in the eyes of the dev team were allowed to exist. CM ET wiz was especially fun, even if arthritis inducing. biggrin.gif

Bears and 0dog were tops for WD; pets was more viable, as in "the circus is coming to town" but not as strong, especially for vanilla Inferno, MP10, etc.. 0dog and CM weren't nearly as arthritic inducing with good hardware to enable macros. biggrin.gif

I actually never used macros. I recently tried Thud until I realized it was basically map hacks and stopped using it.

I've never tried turbo hud but I don't have an issue with those that do. I honestly have just never taken the next step to install/set it up. I do use yolomouse as I constantly lose my cursor in the chaos, so having a bright pink cursor is pretty sweet.

There are super complex macros (go here, click this, take action, etc., etc.) but I use them more along the lines of toggle on/off 1 down --> 1 up --> wait a certain number of milliseconds --> 2 down --> 2 up. Eg. - summon dog --> sacrifice dog (there was some other step but I can't think of it off the top, or I'm confusing CM wiz). so I'd run in and toggle it on then toggle it off when everything was 'sploded.

*edit - another example was the old zdps 'sader as there were 3 skills you'd want to be up as much as possible for buffs/toughness. It's lazy and can certainly be done manually, but why buy the fancy mouse and not utilize its capabilities. there was also that hack that others were using, something about the numlock key I think?
