I believe D3 should try to be less like WoW - not more like it.
please can all the wow players stop taking out their boredom of wow on diablo.
don´t try and make diablo your next wow, just wait for titan and leave diablo alone!
While I don't agree with the OP, I need to mention something on this; WoW is the top MMO, it's EXTREMELY successful. Blizzard has taken elements of WoW (which with some features they got from other games) and put them into D3 / SC2, ect. I'm not sure what the actual fear is - even though D3 doesn't have a subscription, if they are willing to put the time in and develop tweaked systems that might be similar to their other around-the-world successful games, then by all means, please!
You guys really need to stop fearing.... whatever it is that you fear. I don't even actually know what it is that you're afraid of. D3 becoming more popular?
I have to ask the question; Why would anyone play a pvp character? If you can't use the gear you find on 'regular' characters, there's no paragon XP to be gained, and you can't use the pvp character to farm / do anything else, wouldn't that be extremely boring?
Also, their biggest concern about pvp is balance, even when every class has the exact same items. There are just super strong skill combos that are just straight up unfair when playing against another person. They would STILL have to completely change skills / add a GCD.
It just doesn't sound like fun to be farming on my toon, finding great gear, than saying "Hey, let's go play a PVP character that doesn't have any of our awesome found gear, has completely different / nerfed skills and doesn't give us any reward besides maybe achievements!". Sorry, no.
