Diablo 3: A Look Back

  • #21
    Very nIce recap. Happy birthday D3!
  • #22
    I had such high hopes for this game. As I look over everything that has been done this last year its kind of sad. Everything posted should have been released with the game from the start. Also not only has Blizzard ignored the input from players they continue to add things to the game that no one gives a crap about. If they were smart they would listen to the players an actually get something done instead of sitting around for a year tweaking the game for no reason.I mean it took them for ever to test this last patch and it was so weak it wasnt even ANYTHING.

    You know you can play D3 without uusing the AH and RMAH just like the ps3 version :)


    True, which is how I play hardcore. It's great!

    However, until perhaps itemization, alternatives to the AH are very punishing, to the point of feeling broken. It is also difficult not to use it when playing multiplayer with people who do use it since it drags down the group. It also wasn't until well after I started using the AH that I realized it how much it spoiled my playtime. A "Spoiler Alert" disclaimer would have been nice.

    Have high hopes for the coming year!

    Diablo 3 being utter shit.

    14 October - present
    Diablo 3 just being average.


    Thanks for reminding me of this glorious success, Blizz.

    And PS3 owners will get a decent game without RMAH or AH. So fahny joke.

    To be honest no you cant. Itemization was designed around there being an AH to buy gear. The only way you could ever play 100% self found will be after they fix itemization or add more BoA gear. I have been wanting to gear out my barb and play him some and figured Id use my Monk to farm gear for him. During the last month my Barb is still naked save crafted BoA gear. I havent found a single thing he can use that isnt on par with level 30-40 gear. Theres a reason people who try and play self found have just terrible gear. Its not that they arent trying its because they just dont get anything to drop thats worth using. I really hope they fix that part of the game. It takes away from the game when you just hit the AH as soon as you ding 60 and buy gear. You have nothing to look foward to when farming. But if you try to play with only gear you find yourself you get burned out because it seems like everything that drops goes straight to the vendors.

    "Lost" is not how a non-subscription game would consider these happenings. If anything more players make a heavier load on the servers. The servers that no one pays for. Yet Blizzards keeps on patching the game, bringing players back.

    But even if we look at it your way, 3 million players monthly makes Diablo 3 the highest populated game after WoW.

    League of Legends

    Also GW3 gets lots of content and I didn't see a plethora of bitching about how bad it was.

    League of Legends is a free game. Everyone can play it and everyone has, at least at some point. Their financial model is very strong and there's no doubt that it's the highest populated game, even above World of Warcraft. But when it's free that doesn't really say a lot.

    And did you mean GW2?

    People expected Diablo 3 to be the WoW killer. If you really dont enjoy it, and you were expecting to be addicted to it... maybe its not your kind of game dood ;x.
    <We who still play it appreciate it very much for all the additions and attention the game has had for a 1 time pay game. =)
