Bring Back Hostile !

  • #1
    This was one of my favorite features in D2. I think it would way better in D3- and - for an idea how to make it better: once you reach PL100, have "vanity pts"rewarded for killing other PL100 players. Vanity points could go into pick up radius, movement speed, %chance to dodge or block, or maybe even different armor dyes.... just an idea

    please....dont ....hate.. for my nostalgia....

    Yeah, in my opinion a hostile options would be way better than brawling. Blizzard said it was too hard to code but I just think they are lazy or don't have the people to do it. I'd rather pvp and fight against friends in the zones that are already in the game because the scorched chapel is a joke. I thought they would have the decency to add an area for each act (a desert like stinging winds for A2 - or caldeum environment, a battlefield or ontop of the bastion keep for A3 - and finally in some angelic gardens for A4).

    If you got to duel in the existing maps, you would have to use different strategies and you could change area whenever you felt like it. The brawling area is good for 30 minutes.

    I also liked the ears from D2, it was quite humorous! :miniD:

    They could add a mode that allows people to randomly join your game and "hunt" you. You would be able to choose this mode just like you can choose between a few options in 1.0.8 (currently on the PTR). Surviving a PK attempt should award you with an extra NV charge that can exceed the current maximum cap of 5. Succeeding in PK'ing someone should drop you a legendary item or maybe a crafting component that allows you to craft some cool pvp exclusive gear or something like that.

    I could go on for hours and expand on this idea but i'll leave that for someone who has the will power to do so :D

    I don't remember them saying it was too hard, though I could have missed it. I thought it was because a lot of people hated it in D2 and they didn't want to create a separate realm or game mode for people who like it, like they do with Hardcore. FYI, I'm definitely in the camp that hated it in D2 though.
    ...and if you disagree with me, you're probably <insert random ad hominem attack here>.

    Worst idea ever,hated diablo 2 for this.
    There is nothing more dumb than getting constantly killed by overpowered player who's killing you without reason.

    adding a votekick or something once you get killed once could be an option... I think having a better reward system for killing someone who is higher ranked would be a better option...to keep people from "bullying"

    Vanity wasnt the best choice of words, bonus points maybe? Immortal has a nice ring to it.... After PL100 maybe Immortality points ...

    I can't wait to join a pub farm game and someone who has better gear kills me. It's so much fun.

    Oh wait, it isn't.

    For arranged duels, i can agree that Brawling is kinda poor. In Diablo 2 you could choose the field of battle with your friends, but i kinda remember always doing "PvP" in front of the Rogue Encampment. So yeah, for PvP players it can be boring zerging each others in that small map that's the Scorched Chapel.

    And finally, we don't need more stats as a reward for PvP, players are already ripping their eyes off to reach Paragon 100 to gain MF and Stats boosts. Adding more stats doing only PvP will force some, if not many, to do a content they are not interested in to not fall behind in the "most effective way" to play this game.

    You know I love you guys ;)

    Also, you have no idea what kind of control it takes to not go around just destroying people with words. I'm a very angry guy on the inside some days (I may have a Hulk hiding somewhere).

    :D I spent like 30 minutes typing a reply to a post the other day that got me really hot. In the end, I just deleted it and reported the post -- not that it was edited or deleted... :QQ:

    I'm completely in favor of hostile provided that it can't be used for rampant griefing. I simply hated all the griefing in D2 and D1. It was, otherwise, a fairly solid system.

    I take it you're getting close? :D

    I'm somehow at 0 infractions. I think the most obvious theory is that the mods don't read my posts. :ninja:

    I'm ok with hostile mode only if it's possible to opt out of it proactively (not after I'm attacked). Or if it's mandatory, make the attacker suffers a large combat penalty (maybe -50%dmg and life for the entire game) when he/she triggers hostile flag. Or maybe give 15 minutes warning between the hostile trigger and the time it becomes effective.

    No, no, no, no, NO! There is nothing about Diablo 3 that needs or even warrants PvP. Your fellow warriors are not in the game to be antagonists ... they are there to be your companions aiding you in killing monsters in order to defeat Diablo to restore balance to the universe. Killing each other is just plain WRONG. WRONG!
