    • Diablo 3 has sold over 10 million copies in North America and Europe
    • World of Warcraft still has over 10 million active subscribers

    3.8 Million DPS Monk
    Forum member invis has managed to kill Azmodan in 36.5 second on his Monk. While there are certainly some faster kills out there this seems to be one of the fastest Monk kills. Invis has a Twitch channel that you can visit by clicking on this link where he shows his playstyle and answers lots of questions. You can also check out his thread on our forums located here.

    Hi there,

    We've had a report of this happening before, and it does seem that over time it should resolve itself, but in the meantime, can you try resetting or changing the password on your account, then see if that lets you post on the US forums?

    Resetting/changing the password forces all your account related data to refresh, so hopefully that should help.

    Let us know if it doesn't. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Not saying that it isn't a problem, but the whole "legendaries aren't the best items" philosophy that Blizzard initially took was to counter exactly this. But everyone knows how that turned out.

    finish the goddamn original game before you start working on expansions or no one is going to be playing by the time it comes out a decade from now.

    Fuck oath. 6 months after release and its still missing a major part of the game play (PvP anyone?).

    Not to mention they're gonna need a ladder system with resets to get players back when pvp comes out.. its quite clear blizzard are looking at sales figures on paper to determine if a game is successful or not these days... real shame, quality slowly goin out the door for quantity

    DROOD, calling it now. One of the new classes is going to be a druid type. Just sayin.

    Also WTF is up with people complaining that they are working on an expansion?! I'll bet you complain when there's a sunrise too, because it's too bright, ffs.

    That's a VERY poor comparison. Fact is, I actually agree (kinda) with the complaints. First off - there are several factors we don't know about. How many people are working on the expansion? It might just be 10 guys in the Blizz HQ basement coding away. It might be the arts and modelling crew who have nothing to do now the original game is out. We don't know.
    When that has been said, it seems off that we get word on an expansion before we hear anything about 1.1/PvP Patch. However, we are in the dark about all this. :) My guess is the expansion is still 12-18 months away anyways.

    Expansion? The game itself isn't finished yet.
    Not gonna buy anything from this Jay Wilson team. Bring Blizzard North folks back to diablo to make it as it should be.

    everybody who complains about the main game not finished should realize that Blizzard has multiple teams working on different aspects of the Diablo 3 franchise ....

    Meh idk I like it. The sun = D3 exp pack, and it being too bright is people finding something to complain about.

    All that's left for D3 atm is pvp and maybe a couple tweaks, so it makes perfect sense that they are already working on an expansion. ALAS, people must complain, becuase this is the internets.

    There only 1 team in Blizzard, that makes all games, posts and modeates forums, runs bnet sites, makes patches and expansions. They betah drop al tis and work on d3 for fre 4 me forewah!
  • #16
    ...mmm...it's good to know they plan an expansion but there are some things which need to be fixed in the current iteration of the game.
    I like this game and spend 99% of my gaming time on it, yet I'm fully aware there are problems, both in terms of game mechanics and performances (stutter, my archenemy! :boom: ).

    Umm no thats the fastest mp10 azmodan kill out of all classes, its world record.

    BTW funny how none of these top dps guys has the new "uber" ring. Fail much itemization and new content.
