New Josh Mosqueira Tease

    Quote from Snaps

    It will be ladders pretty obviously, but I'm praying they don't just put in standard ladders ala D2.

    Diablo 3 is not a game about character creation, thus implementing ladders has limited value. Exclusive items are a terrible idea; why people who want to play ladder feel entitled to this is beyond me, the reward is the competition, the race, if this reward alone is not enough - then stop playing ladders. I don't see the hardcore community begging for exclusive items just because they play HC.


    The ladders will be a great reason to start a new character in a game that otherwise doesn't have a lot of motivation to do so (at least in Softcore). So, I see the ladders as a welcome addition. I hope that they implement a system to "retire" characters, similar to how you can "archive" dead Hardcore heroes.

    Whether you like ladder-exclusive items or not is just a matter of opinion. Some like the incentive, some don't care for it. Personally, I'd like to see some ladder-exclusive affixes that are geared toward ladder play - bonus exp, bonus chance to find gems,bonus smithing patters, stuff that would help players starting with no support, as you do in a fresh ladder season.

    While I would absolutely LOVE the return of the Necromancer class, I don't see it happening. I doubt they would wait till days before the x-pacs release to announce such a thing. Though it would be one hell of a good move from a PR stand point.

    Ladders? Meh. I don't really care for them one way or the other. As long as it has NO effect on people who don't play them, I don't see the harm.

    PvP. I honestly don't think PvP will ever make it into D3. It's to messy and to hard to balance. Something Blizzard learned the hard way with WoW. But who knows, Blizz has surprised me before.
    I see the line in the sand.
    Time to find out who I am.
    Looking back to see where I stand.

    Judging by the responses in this thread alone, I can tell this is going to be another shit storm of controversy.

    Hope not, its a real turn off sometimes.

    Figured Diablo fans would be cheering and understanding but I forget, its the internet. Ages 5-90.

    Me too.I wasn't aware people felt this strongly about ladders and ladder-exclusives. I really hope they ace this new development. Blizz just started gaining back some goodwill with 2.0, it would be a shame if they lost it all again with a poor implementation of ladders/pvp/mystery feature.

    It was. Ladder mobs were harder. See:http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/basics/charactertypes.shtml


    Ladder Games Have Increased Difficulty
    Ladder Games offer a more challenging type of gameplay than players will find in Normal Games. Monster AI speeds have been increased. Reaction times increased for Ladder Nightmare and Hell games. Basically every monster acts like a super unique.

    Blizzard has already said that they don't want D3 ladders to work like D2 ladders. My guess is that ladders will be added side by side with Campaign and Adventure mode. It will be like a third mode (e.g., a "Challenge" mode) with leaderboards.

    As other people have said, D3 has never been about making new characters. There's never been a need toreroll. You only need to make 5 characters (10 if you want to play both genders, get achievements, etc.). But after that, there's never a need. At least not in softcore anyway.I'm not saying its right or wrong. Just how it seems to me. (I rerolled all the time in D2. Not once in D3.)

    Quote from Vagrancy

    This is the type of mentality that makes me laugh. People bitched about dailies in WoW for the same reason. its all voluntary people. What someone else has in the game doesn't affect you in the slightest bit, and they've pretty much cemented that with BoA , no AH, and practically no trading. I'll never understand how people can be so self centered around a video game, what someone else does, has, is, does NOT affect you, your game play, your experience and it certainly shouldn't impact the fun you have.

    The problem that happened with dailies in WoW was that, for a long time before things like LFD/RF, it was the only way to advance gear for unlucky drops for people who had a hard time finding a group. So, to some they were mandatory. But, I did start to get aggravated with people who complained after those systems were released. Raid Finder and LFD did a lot to reduce the mandatory feel for daily quests.

    yes....either way my point is..its all VOLUNTARY!

    For the love of god will the people that work full-time/have a family just accept not having as much time to spend on the game as others?


    And let those others have something extra?


    Please?

    Facepalm to the people who dont understand what a ladder system is ...

    Saying: "omg i hope they dont add ladder" is like a softcore player saying: "omg i hope they dont add hardcore".

    Its just another game mode...

    Totally agree. I've been actively whining about the lack of PvP in the game, and people keep on acting really defensive about PvE, when nobody says that PvP has to impact PvE. Not to mention that i don't mind if PvP isn't balanced it would just be a cool feature. Instead of people accepting these features as a bonus, rather than some danger to their playstyle, we'll never get what we want.

    I find ladders completely useless ,but they should add them if people want them ,won t affect me

    I find ladders as a failure for no endgame provided : oh i maxed all my characters i explored every hole and inch in this game...hmm what should i do with my life? let s start over and over again same chars !!

    it s a fresh start feeling ,but it is shor termed..and now players are equal almost ,only differences are taht some ppl got 100-200 paragon more than most whioch is not so tragic...[i talk about ros]
    like that exploiter guys KingKongor ,who always finds a glitch in d3 [he did same in the beta and now] and exploits it to the max...cursed chests,now cota, in friends and family he only glitched and exploited...

    personally i hope it s not ladder system...but I am like 92 sure % it is ladder system
    if they added pvp they made 2 months of testing,same if it was a new class

    No offense, but I have heard people say that before. And then 6 months later they are yelling about how X class is so OP compared to Y class. How badly PvP is broken. How Blizzard screwed it all up. Seriously, would you as a developer want to deal with that day in and day out?

    I would like to see a ladder season more like PoE's ladder season

    different events thruought different times of the day for a a coupel months each event awards points toward your season total at the end of season you get different items depending how far up the ladder you made it.

    Ideally a ladder event requires a whole new character for the duration of the event that is then wiped or an on going ladder event where u can only use ladder character during event times or something like this anyways.

    A system like this one rewards players that can only participate a little and also awards those that have no life and can play every single event

    You act like "those others" aren't already 300+ paragon levels ahead and don't have way more gear than the average person EVER will have.

    Yeah, those poor, neglected, souls need more.

    Another cool tweet from Josh Mosqueira showing that they mean serious business with ladders.https://twitter.com/joshmosq/status/444646853083004928/photo/1

    Unless they meant something else and ladders are REALLY being implemented...
