Character Profiles Possibly Coming Soon
In case you missed the Facebook teaser post today. A blank picture (seen on the right) was posted on the official Diablo III Facebook page along with the text "Coming soon to www.Diablo3.com". Compared to the previous preview of character profiles (seen on the left) it's clear they match together. However there have been no updates in the Diablo API forum post.
For any developers out there, now seems to be the time to get ready for the web API. Make sure to check out the Diablo Tools section for resources and to post any information about tools you will be making.
Critical Mass Wizard Build
RGDiablo3 has posted another video, this time covering his version of the "Critical Mass" build for the Wizard. He covers in detail the skill choices (along with alternative skill choices) and gear information. Feel free to check out his thread and leave any feedback.
South Korea Gets a Server Upgrade
Some users in South Korea have had a few server problems that last couple of weeks. It looks like Blizzard has been hard a working attempting to correct the issue. You can see a rough translation below, or view the original article on the KR battle.net page.
Dear players of South Korea, we would be happy to provide you with a better game environment so that recent Asian server has completed additional expansion work, with some remaining in North America this all equipment was removed. Speaking a little more, last June following the game for an extension of the primary server that caused some delay in order to resolve the problem in July 24 as part of additional expansion work has been completed.
Continue forward to you so that we can better gaming experience more reliable service will do our best.
Blizzard Entertainment Dream.
Shortly after the release of Diablo 3, Blizzard had a fun way to promote Diablo III. In the video you can see the mobile game truck that let people play Diablo III and see some rather interesting decorations.
Are You Looking Forward to the Character Profiles?
With character profiles looking to be right around the corner, and the Diablo III web API soon to be live as well, are you looking forward to the profiles and possible user tools?
Im not really looking forward to that thing, its been announced multiple times with much praise for themselves. id rather have them fix the game in all of its' horrible aspects instead of working on some superficial out of game feature....kinda lame-y.
I was really hoping they'd have profiles online before people started getting world first Hardcore Inferno clears. Instead we got "maybe it's first.. maybe it's not.. oh yeah OK it is" nonsense on Twitter.
As a coder, this feature is huge. I am in the process of creating a program that will jsut pull your data and do all the calculations for you, so no more having to write all your stats down in an excel sheet. Just have to load it up, and input the item you're upgrading too.
I wish they had made it sooner, and they still haven't given us a final preview in the official thread with all the updates I asked for, but hopefully it'll preview tomorrow, and come out tuesday.
