    I've never played in a public game, and I've been playing off and on since day 1.

    posted a message on The meaning of TurboHUD and why it is much more than just a hack

    So happy about all this daily ban hammers ^^. 3 scrubs using THUD (they were in average 200 para or so) got perma banned, i pissed myself laughing when i have seen them crying in clan chat with a fresh account LOL. Simply priceless, thanks Blizz u doing something right in several years finally.

    Lol. If they told you they were banned for using Thud they're lying. If they issued bans for THUD literally every single D3 streamer, pretty much everyone other than your garden variety casual scrub player would be banned. If a person got banned they got banned for botting, that they used THUD also is irrelevant. Didn't get banned for THUD.

    posted a message on How is Quin69's video/network lag totally non-existent?

    Aside from my graphics card my hardware is from around 2010~ and I very rarely get frame drops. I used to get frame drops and mini freezes all the time, but adjusting the sound quality of all things is what fixed that for me.

    Furnace is vastly overrated but in your specific case with your specific goal of greater rifts it pulls ahead.

    Quote from swebarbgo-next
    nah this wont work shit on rifts at 40 or even higher just forget that, u need all reakor ancient equip and a very good furnace and elemental dam and high lvl on your gems, 45 min and higher thats the way to go.
    Those things help for sure but you don't "need" them.

    posted a message on Time to increase Torment levels ?
    Surprise, when you have decent gear and are using one of the best builds for your class you can roll T6. If you hate greater rifts and just want to play normal rifts and adventure mode or whatever, try using less ideal builds and make your own challenge because sadly greater rifts are the endgame now. This is what we asked for afterall. :)

    pathetic jealously ? are you kidding me? i dont give a shit about gr 49 in scrubcore rofl

    I want see a 49 with act TWO-THREE-FOUR-FIVE mobs and NOT always act 1 mobs with full density. Now tell me, Why EVERY players on high leaderboards: from 1th to 10th keep find those mobs with high density? same for dirge, i saw her kill video on youtube with her dps monk, and know what? high density with act 1 mobs -_-'
    You will never see it until blizz fixes this issue.

    If you yourself were in this competitive tier of play then you would know this already. jelly scrub confirmed
    No, i dont compete with scrubcore and in non season, sorry :). And,i play monk dps....since ISNT easy to reach high tier.
    I always have to wonder if people that make statements like this actually play hardcore or if they just lie to attempt to impress us.

    posted a message on Next Expansion Speculation
    Quote from Triceron
    I think a 2nd expansion is happening, even if they're skeptical on sales. ROS brought back Diablo's fun, even if it might not have earned the high sales of vanilla (which was most in part due to years of D2 hype, not the game itself).


    Sales for RoS were pretty good, actually. There's pretty much no such thing as 100% player retention, expansions don't sell as well as base games. Of course they had to spend a crapton on marketing to make up for the negative reputation that D3V had.

    Quote from ShikiSama

    The point is, 7 years of development canceled, and no one is blaming anyone.
    You sound more like a bitter shareholder than anything else.

    The #1 thing I hate about this absolutely fucking shitty community is the constant need to blame people. Something went wrong? We need a public execution to make amends.

    It's like we've completely lost our sense of civility because we've all turned into spoiled little man-babies.
    I think this is the best I've ever seen it worded.

    For example I'm not a fan of Jay Wilson, but I never really understood the bloodlust with which he specifically was pursued by the community. People demanding that he lose his job because they didn't like decisions that the D3 team made. "Raaawr screw that guy and his family because his team made a decision I didn't like in a video game!"

    posted a message on Does anyone else think that the PC version of the game is better?
    You're not the only one that likes it more. Personally I like the console UI more than the PC version, but I find the PC version to be superior in every other way.

    blood shards are the best way to get something you want so once the boss is dead start another asap.
    Not for Torment only set pieces.
    Yes, for everything.
    So did they change it to where Torment only set pieces are obtainable from Kadala? I have always been under the impression that the only things you could not obtain from shards were the Torment only set pieces like IK.
    Yeah they changed it so that you can get torment only items including sets.

    posted a message on True end game.
    Honestly while I found gearing up my original character to be very satisfying, if I had to do that again with abysmal set item drop rates I probably wouldn't be playing at all right now since the current viable Barb playstyle is extremely boring.

    posted a message on Proof that diablo is dying to exploits and mid season changes
    Quote from eple
    Blizzard's inability to take measurements against the huge exploiters in season 1, kinda ruined alot of the fun with the season.

    About public games, for me who played the older iterations of diablo alot aswell, they are a huge part of the game.

    And Blizzard could promote them by only apply "group buff" in public games, which would also help balance a PuG versus a premade group.
    All that accomplishes is punishing people for playing with their friends.

    Quote from XIIIFiVe

    That screenshot of an unspecified realm at an unspecified time is proof that not only the game is boned but that it's specifically because of changes to trials and exp exploits? That's impressive.

    My clan is still active, my friends list is still active. My anecdotal evidence and yours seem to not agree, solution? PILLOW FIGHT!
    yeah...i dont know how to make it show time, im not great with computers, if you dont blieve go check for yourself, and there is no realms its seasons and non seasons. and this is seasons at pretty much prime time. you guys will defend blizzard to the gates of hell its funny. seriously EVERYONE go check if you dont believe me and go ahead and post your results. id take a screenshot with my clock at the bottom of my screen but youd complain about that to. and im saying the game is dying from all of these problems combine that MOST of you say is completly okay. well now do you think its completly okay? sure you have an active guild...not hard to get 150 people...which most guilds do not have. after all most games have millions. buts thats going to keep growing smaller and smaller if they dont stop doing things like these. i think the fact that there were thousands of people doing t 6 greater rifts at the begining of the season and now there is 36 st prime time says quite a bit. and i know torment doesnt matter for g rifts but most people are t6 cabaple and just leave it on t 6.
    1) Source that most people are capable of T6. (Hint: "Most" people are not.)
    2) Right now there are 270 people in T6 public games on the US region non-seasonal. It shouldn't be any surprise to anyone but the most competitive of people that non-seasonal is more popular than seasonal. For the average player there is zero reason to compete in seasons, especially this first season which is pretty much a huge test of seasons since Blizzard has stated in the past that PTRs and Betas provide less testing feedback than they'd actually like.
    3) Read your own thread title, you claim to have PROOF of the reason why there are so few people playing in seasons. Yet you haven't shown any of this proof that you supposedly have. At best you have proof that season 1 had little longevity, or that season 1 wasn't very popular, in the PUG scene but you don't have proof of why, and you also don't show how popular pugging was in seasons. You're looking at a minority of a minority and making a judgment on the entire game based on that with zero historical data.
    4) Regions not mattering is news to me considering that the regions in this game are completely separate and always have been.
    5) Don't accuse me of blindly defending Blizzard and their decisions, they make plenty that I disagree with. When you're wrong and use poor wording and someone calls you on making claims and having no proof it doesn't mean that they're part of the Blizzard defense force, just that they feel that you personally are wrong.
    i think anyone who has played seasons saw that there were thousands of people in public games when it started. and 270 people is like nothing dude, you just proved to me that the game is dying..probably shouldnt have said that. and the majority of players DO join a public game here and there especially when theres not a lot of groups in there clan or the groups that are there are full. so no i would hardly call public games a minority. even if there was fewer people, even half, even 30%, the numbers are so low that its something to show that at least points where the game is headed and where its at.

    do you have anything that shows otherwise? i doubt it, this is least something to go off of. how do you think guilds start huh? public games...sure you can post on the forums, but theres more people that dont use the forums then do. so even then your gonna need to play public games to find people.
    You made the claim bro, burden of proof is on you. :)

    And you keep making claims and providing no proof of these claims. For example, you say that the majority of people join a public game here and there. Proof on that? You claim that anyone that has played seasons not only played a public game but bothered to check how many people were playing in public games. Proof? I won't dispute that there are fewer players now than at the launch of seasons, that should actually be fairly obvious. What I will dispute is your claim that you have proof of the cause of that. You claim that communities come from public games. Proof? Public games and seasonal players and especially seasonal public players are a significant portion of the player base? Proof?

    Your thread title says you have proof, but so far you've posted proof of none of your claims. Where's the proof?
