post #27851 of 30163
^at season start I try to go as long as I can. Last season I was about an hour late and completely passed out right off the bat. thankfully Crazy was doing well enough to power-level me when I woke up an hour or two later. In the past, lemans and I would burn through the night and well into the next day. I'd usually black out, and then get back online Sunday morning to find him still going. I might try to sneak the ol' laptop into my new job and get some game-time in there at the start of season. It really depends on how much the new season has to offer, and what the group is running at the beginning, coupled with how much I chose to kick my own ass the night before (e.g. - I'll be seeing Suicide Squad late Thursday night...).

thx for confirming - I had mentioned I thought time in-game was retained, but wasn't sure. I'm almost embarrassed to have that listed, so I delete and re-start. lachen.gif You can still see time played in profile though, so I suppose I'm not hiding much. Since most of my hours are solo, the hours are much higher than someone like say Crazy, who's exp generation in high GR 4p kicks the hell out of my exp generation. tongue.gif

but, it's what all of us cool kids do! biggrin.gif I would have liked to group with ya toward the end, but we kept missing each other, and then I eventually went offline for the last month or so (my buddy coming into town really killed the urge).

*edit - @Valor958 - most of this group does not mind the sponge/leech at all, and are usually more than willing to help you get the exp and the lootz! smile.gif

I wish there was more effort put into seasons by Blizz. Grinding Gears does a much better job with Path of Exile seasons. They actually build in new content to give you a reason to want to play again.

Blizz on the other hand just uses seasons to nerf or buff items and abilities. I don't see myself putting in any effort into S7.

^what sort of content is released with PoE seasons? I've played the game very little, so I'm curious how they handle their seasons.

anyone on b.net today - did they patch up, or will it come closer to S7 start?

Which is strange since I assume that we are in the same time zone going by how often you hit Reno, maybe we should send our wives there for a three day weekend starting Friday.

Valor, I knew you wouldn't be doing much going it, the hope was to get you geared up to help with higher GR's, my best for S6 was 75, I so wanted to clear 80 just for gem leveling

I always in season play once I hit 70 start running P-lvling for clan members who don't get in early playing. I will be doing it again in S7 so if you need leveling and see me on just give me a shout.

I'm hoping to make more of this season since i'll be starting AT the start, and not 2 weeks before it ends lol.

I'm so down for that! lachen.gif I'm in PST but typically working then hanging with the kids till they're in bed. I typically burn the midnight oil getting my game time in. It's pretty often that I'll start after midnight... redface.gif

ah yea, R-Dub is usually on a bunch too. I think Brazilian was on a ton last season start too, cause it was before finals or something?

haha, that should definitely help! biggrin.gif I'm definitely looking forward to season starting, even though it's such a pita grind at first! smile.gif

I'll probably be on for it. At least for a little I'm going to Maine for the weekend so no marathoning for me this weekend or next I guess. DC for an interview and reprieve before school.

@Yahu
There in lies the problem, I stopped burning the midnight oil about a decade ago, makes me feel like crap and moody as hell for the next couple days (getting old sucks) plus the owner of the private network I use at work has it and there hardware locked down tight, so no D3 on the clock.

I was watching a Ryker (may be misspelt) video on some changes coming in patch 2.4.2, it seems in an effort to rain in the 3 support 1 DPS GR clears Blizzard is nerfing a lot of damage buffs, Monk and DH are getting hit hard with nerfs to Wolf companion buff and inner sanctuary, forbidden palace, as well as nerfs to group healing bonus, this will make season 7 Gr clears lower than the previous seasons a first since seasons started, some of these changes while aimed at group play will also affect solo play as well, my active wolf companion is how I burned downed elite packs in S6 and in the PTR blizz nerfed it by half, 30% nerfed to 15%.

^I hear ya, and since starting a new job (that I have to take more seriously than my last) I haven't been able to play as late as I used to. There are definitely some fat nerfs coming to 4P. I haven't watched any videos on the overall effect though, so that sucks. While I don't like the nerfs, I can see why they want the 3x support and 1x dmg 4p meta to change.

Question for you D2 players, did they change builds this much during season play back then?
