Shoot, when I was at this last blizzcon, the d3 area was just a small hole in the wall nook, with hardly any attention given to it.

you can certainly argue the position, and I'm not sure about the games you cited (good or bad and specifics for each?) but time does not equal quality. this is true with games, with software in general, and anything else that goes through any form of development cycle (cars, shoes, hell even toilet brushes...). wink.gif

As far as gratification goes, it can feel a bit delayed, but at least I got some today. Basically, my Crusader woke up all swole today and beat down everything jumping up to torment 1 finally. Got all my crusader achievs (except the duplicate achiev for playing a 2nd crusader of the opposite sex and talking in pandemonium)... so I moved on to my old neglected demon hunter. Gotta say, she's fun. Crusader got fun, but DH is starting off just as fun.

Looking forward to new season this coming Friday, trying to decide what to roll to start. Usually go wizzy, but may start with a Crusader and get that pesky achiev i ignored biggrin.gif

that opens up a trade market, which blizz is notoriously bad at managing, so would be left unregulated and messy. not going to happen...

D4? too soon, totally agree.

New season opens friday? i get back to the states on thursday....tempting.....

I was agreeing with you that time doesn't necessarily mean quality.
Witcher 2 & 3 were only four years apart (and Witcher 3 easily greatly impRoved on Witcher 2), and I'm sure the company had a much smaller budget than blizzard.
I think maybe blizzard let too much time pass in between Diablo 2 & 3, losing focus on what made the first two so enjoyable for so many. And, that with pouring all of their focus into WoW, D3 got the short end of the stick.
Also, with how much time there was between the Diablo games, there are other factors in the experience of playing them. Twelve years between games is quite some time.
Someone who is 16 playing Diablo 2 will have a completely different experience playing Diablo 3 at 28, because of life changes and responsibilities, in my opinion.
It becomes more of a reminiscing experience of "when life was simpler", changing your perspective off something altogether.

I think those screens were posted in this thread when they came out a few years back. The perspective is odd. It looks like they kept the same style of health/mana pots from D1/D2, and probably the skill system generally... but none of those would guarantee the game would be bad. I wonder if there's an alpha test somewhere that could get leaked someday, but seems unlikely.

I would have loved to try it. One thing I noticed quickly is they kept truer to the dark environment of Diablo 2 than 3 did. And they're both 3D (2005 D3 and release D3).

I would much rather have a second expansion which adds a sixth act, a new class and a new armor set for each class so that we would get 5 armor sets per class.

Season 7 is around the corner. I am going to be playing on EU servers, would gladly play with anyone from here who also is located in Europe.

sonuva biatch I hate this site sometimes! I think it is the stupid ad content that kills my browser, which eats my post... mad.gif

I'd recommend looking to recent videos from the streamers to see what looks good. remember that PTR content is subject to change, so only more recent videos should apply. The patch should go live for non-season starting tomorrow (unless they are delayed) so if that happens, fire up some builds and see what you feel works good in that "end-game" scenario and choose from there. thumb.gif

Ha - I totally read your previous post wrong! wink.gif I think you make very valid points, especially about how perspective changes. here's an example - lemans' kid Chris is playing D3 now at 10 years old I think? He doesn't really get it, but say in 12 years time when he's playing more complex games and a sequel comes out. He'd be like "why the hell did my dad like this baby game?" It reminds me of that scene in Back to the Future 2 when Marty plays the nostalgic shootin' arcade game, and the kids in the future are like "w.t.f.?"

in other news, I got my lowly XBox1 console WD up to T6/T7 - GR35 (run in ~9min) over the weekend. Not bad considering I don't have a single set more than 4pc, I don't yet have all legendary gems (only stupid Powerful leveled to 25), I got a good mask (MoJ) but I can't use it cause I only have 2pc helltooth, one piece being the mask, and I have mostly played solo (I have helped level up a buddy and my son). Also, this is starting from a completely fresh profile, so I had to beat the friggin' game first to unlock Master difficulty and Adventure mode, and then get to 70 of course to unlock torment. Not to mention using the controller in the inventory/stash is just...dumb. Just by using MoJ alone, I could probably boost up to T9.

One cool thing about split-screen is you can log others into your game and "pull" them along with you. so I didn't touch my son's main, since he hadn't hit 70, but I leveled an alt 'sader to 70 so that I could start gathering gear for an eventual 'sader. Then I realized with S7 starting Friday, how much more time do I really want to spend on the game. I turned off the console yesterday evening and haven't had any urge to turn it back on. It's a nice distraction, and since there is no season, my toons will basically be in suspended animation in the meantime.

I do have to say - playing with a controller for the "action" part of the game is a lot more fun than I was expecting. overall it is simply annoying (inventory is such a pain in the ass), and I don't think you could ever be as effective on it, simply due to targeting of certain skills, but for kickback, lounging gameplay it is quite nice.

I might rebirth my WD in S7 just to get the Hell tooth set

Yahu I get your anx on the site, I was trying to post about my WD and had to close the browser, that alone took several tries and when I came back my message was still waiting for me to finish it.

There is a thread covering some of the woes people are experiencing with the new format
