I am surprised nobody else thinks one of the biggest issues to ALL THINGS in this game dying (including hardcore) is Adventure Mode.
When they decided to go away from the targeted kill/grind we all fell in love with in every other ARPG, and instead went 100% random, I feel the game lost purpose.
You can still have things like rifts and greater rifts without adventure mode, and you can even have bounties, but instead tie them into act quests, much like WQ's in WoW.
Bottom line, ARPG's are not meant to be 100% random, they are meant to have a long drawn out but targeted grind, something you can actually plan for.
HERE IS TO AN ARPG FANS HOPE THAT THE GAME, WHETHER IT BE D4 OR ANOTHER XPAC GO BACK TO THE ROOTS!
I do not even care if I die due to something I did.
But when you die because of incompetence to have an offline mode for HC meaning lag destroys you and what is the point?
