Beta - dissapointed. Very raw

  • #21
    This is just another thread about someone not liking beta content , it's not supposed to "be liked" or anything at all.
    You're forgetting the MAIN reason for playing this beta, which is actually testing the game on bugs/stability and whatnot, instead of "getting ahead of the game before anyone else".
    YOU are one of the few who get's to help the devs to polish the game even more.

    Beside this all , don't judge a game on it's beta.

    My 2 cents

    Setting aside my rofl on how uber tarted the OP is i must ask:

    Which retarted company combines a I7 with a 3k srie from amd ...?

    I was thinking this as well. I7 with nothing to go with it? So disappointing, waste of power

    its not that rare, for the avg user "aka not gamer" does not need a high card, but can use the power of a better processor. its very common.

    It's a laptop, they are using the integrated card in the i7 to save space/power. As said, not that uncommon in regular laptops. Not the best for games though. Ivy Bridge will bring a much better integrated GPU though (~double the performance of HD 3000).

    Oh you know, just Acer, Asus, Apple, Samsung, Toshiba, Lenovo and every other company that makes an Ultrabook.

    The 3k is by Intel.

    Majority of PC consumers are NOT gamers. So, actually, most companies. They recognize that powerful graphics cards are a waste for most people.

    Anyone who thinks weapon swamp is small or never used it in D2... I can't believe you actually used mana stolen per hit weapons all the time :facepalm:

    I would love this feature in D3. Shield + 1H Weapon / Two-Handed Weapon for barbarian ? Or one set for DPs and other for fury generation ?

    Omg it almost feels like people wanna click click click click without having to build uo any startegy. u.u sad
    "In time the hissing of her sanity
    Faded out her voice and soiled her name
    And like marked pages in a diary
    Everything seemed clean that is unstained
    The incoherent talk of ordinary days
    Why would we really need to live?
    Decide what is clear and what's within a haze
    What you should take and what to give" - Opeth

    I did not play the beta and with the beast computer i have, i doubt i will have any issues regarding gameplay unless it is related to connection (Core i7, radeon 5450, TTR3 HD). One thing which decieved me a lot is seeing how this game is being noob-oriented. They took out one of the best feature that was in D2, weapon swapping. Blizzard justified taking out this feature by saying that newbs would be too confused with it. This totally pissed me off even to a point where i am reconsidering buying the game... If this game is newb oriented, i will look for another game and won't even bother buying D3. I don'T wan't 13 years old and under game... Since this game is full of blood, it should not be focused around 13 years old kid, really. Make the game for people 18+.

    I wouldnt say noob-oriented, but friendly to casuals.
    And swapping weapons is really just little detail. I mean, its such small feature and I rarely used it in D2 anyways.


    Little detail??? This either shows you are either noob or narrow minded (i quoted you but could've quoted another newb too btw).
    Pro gamers like me own newbs like you because of such small features and this part of the game is actually the "brain-part". Now those blizzard games are down to who will have better micro but is no more about who can build up the best strategy. MF is actually the last thing i worry about when thinking about what weapon swapping would bring to the game... I guess ill need to explain:

    Take a barb with weapon mastery for example

    1. Close on your target with 1H+shield (damage mitigation)
    2. Build up fury with DW, mighty weapons (fury builder)
    3. Throw damage with 2H, axe, mace or sword (fury spender)

    This is a basic example of how this makes a huge difference in my game play. DH and monk are 2 more caracters which would benefit greatly from being able to swap weapons. In D2 for example, a Hybrid Amazon could put 1 point into frost arrow, freeze target, swap to javelin (damage), and go on like this swapping back and forth. A lot of builds would not be playable in D2 without weapon swapping. The same applies to D3. Take the Dh for example. Who the fuck would still use crossbow when the target is toe to toe? Not being able to swap for a big 2H or 1H+shield for this caracter is really decieving. Most players think that this is a small feature but it could actually bring a lot more variety to the game and allow more hybrid builds. Imo, the only reason why Blizzard did not want to implement it is because they are lazy bastards who do not want to spend much time balancing the game and they are building it newb-oriented.

    Now what is common is the 3k serie for non gamers... BUT it is not a matter of being a gamer or not: It is a matter of bottleneck. And in that case gamer or non gamer wil NOT be able to normaly use it. After al these years i have never seen such a high end cpu combined with a 3k serie. Its just retarted even for a non gamer.


    So again: i am not saying that they should give non gamers a high end vid card, i am talking SPECIFICALLY about the I7 combined zith the 3000 serie.

    Okay, I received my beta key yesterday. Played through with a Wizard, Monk, and Witch Doctor.
    Some thoughts:
    Mostly plays well on my tiny laptop: Intel HD graphics 3000, i7, 4gb ram. Probably graphics card is the bottleneck - but on low graphics settings it is smooth. Unless you have a lot of people on the screen, in which case I have enormous lag. I think it is server-side.
    Besides that, the beta feels very unfinished and unpolished. Little things like clicking on a book (in Cain's house) and it dissapears and does nothing, clicking on ashes urns when standing next to them without any effect. AH and achievements not working, game not remembering my username. And a lot of tiny rough details which interrupt the flow of the game.
    I would be extremely dissapointed if they release the game anytime soon, because it is not playable the way it is now.
    Also, the templar is a dumbass. Stupid. I hate him. But the Wizard girl has the best personality ^_^


    The lag you have is not server side, that would be your rig.

    1. Clicking on book and it dissapears.
    That means you've already gotten it.
    2. Clicking on ashes / urns with no affect.
    You need to attack them.
    3. Achievements not working.
    They've worked almost 100% the day they were put in, sometimes Blizz turns them off.
    4. Game not remembering user name.
    This was fixed for launch months ago.

    Edit: The dumbass stupid templar comment.. How old are you?

    ...
    The entire I5 2500k and I7 2600k series have the 3k integrated. Seems wierd that you havent seen that before.

    A wasted beta key.

    Go look up differences between beta and demo.

    Without going into details ill assume you updated your video (GL updating integrated graphics; those are rarely released in timely manner with tweaks specifically for games) drivers/cleaned up your PC, make a report/describe your problem and post it in D3 beta forums with your dx config and system specs so they can look into it.
    THWL.

    Maybe you'll have to learn new mechanics and develop new strategies rather than being a "lazy bastard" who doesn't want to adapt.

    Do you even hear yourself? I'm going to stomp my feet and hold my breath if Blizzard doesn't do things my way!

    Go for it, champ. Let's see how well that works for you.

    Wyll-

    That's the config in every Ultrabook available as well as some laptops. The fact remains, if you are a normal enduser who uses the laptop for Office, email, internet, etc, the integrated 3k offered in the Ultrabooks is ideal.

    It isn't region-specific at all. The companies I listed earlier sell the same machine around the world.

    If i havent seen it, then trust me it is somewhat region related.

    Acer, Asus, Apple, Samsung, Lenovo, etc sell their products world-wide. It is not region related at all.

    they should have had a gameplay time tracker on d2, more time played = better chance of beta key... children like this that have no idea what the intent of a beta is should not be providing feedback to developers... hes probably somewhere between 14-16 years of age...
