    posted a message on Diablo 4 delayed by 5 years!

    I got 9 beautiful sources telling me that Diablo 4 is delayed by 5 years! The reason is that Lost Ark will dominate MMORPG and ARPG scene so badly, they had to delete all what they where working on and starting all over!


    PvP arenas are included in the marketing materiale for Diablo 4 but not in the game!

    posted a message on Ban wave in EU and US

    Warden client does have weakness but is sure do get some. Its a arms ace, thats why the term "ban waves" coming from. In Diablo is does not as much harm as in game like Lol where people are directly influenced. Reason why they cant instant ban the cheat is that the cheater will have an easy time to keep change something, thats why ban waves comes in waves and you never know when it will coming, and which cheat are working sadly.


    Well Gabynator is one of the most hardcore Diablo player i ever know, sadly that he got lured into the darksite. But hell i think is Blizzard feeling that they want to help him, so he does not get a heartattack from gaming so much, would be bad publicity!!! so they banned him ;)

    That free set counts for nothing as far as actually farming goes. Saves you two or three days of play. Perfect gear still takes a considerable length of time, with XP farming following that.






    Sorry but in my opinion, getting all the gear you need in a couple days and then spending three months sifting through thousands of legendary drops hoping for the same thing with a couple more stats =/= an actual, fun loot hunt. It's become paragon grind: the game, and it's just disappointing.




    Congratulations! You've just realized what everyone else who has quit the game realized long ago. Loot treadmills don't stay fun forever. There are probably more people who haven't played Diablo 3 in years than there are current players. That, to me, is the mark of bad game design.


    Yes, I'm suggesting that loot treadmills are bad game design. No, I don't expect you guys to agree with me. You've all made it perfectly clear that all you really need is slightly altered abilities and legendaries every few months.


    I disagree with the statement that it's bad game design when players stop playing. It's like with movies. You don't want to watch the same movie all the time. But if it's a good movie, you'll come back to it and watch it every now and then. Just like with seasons in D3. Every season lots of players come back to play it again. That to me is a sign of good game design. People come back to it, so they like it, so it's good. And people move on once they got what they wanted from it. We don't live in the year 2000 anymore. There is no reason to play one game all the time, because now we have dozens of extremely good games coming out every year. People don't want to stick to one game and lots of those good games are played through once and not played again (at least for a long time). That's not a bad game design.
    Also, it's completely normal that more players stop playing than players who keep playing. WoW had 12-13 million subs in its peak and at that time there were over 90 million total accounts. By your definition, WoW is plagued by bad game design, while being the most successful MMO ever ;)
    Wow had a great time because nothing was better. Everquest was shit compared to wow. Now you can play alot other stuff like Hello kitty online! But yes i felt i got good value for my money. i hope they release semething good news at their 20th year of diablo this year.

    posted a message on 30 million units sold and nothing new?

    for me its more of this situation that they keep adding stuff to the game, out of nowhere like why did we need set dungeons? but they dont fix underlying things like more bank space, difficulty scaling and 100's of other things that on any given day the community has a post about. They dont ignore the feedback per se, i dont think that, but it seems as a company they have always just moved forward rather than fix/improve stuff...


    look at wow, they continue to add cool new stuff, and ignore the major issues the game has, but hey now we get valor so we can raid harder, its the same situation in any of their games, its a company philosophy that has been there since the start, move forward not backwards, but i really think in the last few years the community is tired of that underlying message, and would rather see them fix/improve things or at least take a look at how they could fix it, acknowledge the community and say something...silence makes people think they arent listening or have any idea what they are doing


    the dev's at blizz are extremely good at what they do, the teams are experienced, sometimes i feel though they arent as focused as they should be, because if i had a team as dedicated to d3 as they do, you would think things would be far far better by now, but they continue to move forward and give us tried and true content rather than improve/fix. (and random things like set dungeons)


    rifts would be 100x better with a few fixes, more bag space, there's a stupid long list posted daily of all the things they could do to make this game not only more enjoyable but keep players engaged and playing. Yet we get silence, and season 6, which despite all the bells and whistles and stuff they have added is the same grind, the same thing, its just to keep us busy another 3 months



    Yes, i remember playing wow. The server lagg was real. I think they where totally surprise with their huge succes. It took em very long time to fix server laggs. We talking years on the popular servers, that still lag?
    And yes Blizzard are very good at making good gamebreaking games. But things really convervative and slow. Like in wow, when PVP came it was really conservative and slow. Balancing was like buffing driud this season and warriors next season. flying mount was cool etc. But then they shifted to the casual focus instead the 1 %. There is a guy who worked for Blizzard wow division lead designer something, now he working at Leage of legends riot and he is doing the same shit in lol. trying to improve life for casual and entry segment. And their is huge rage on reddit with polls over 90k where 64 % says they want solo queue back.
    Also they made so lol is more addictive like heartstone and CS:GO busines model with addictive feature to lure more money out. Its okay but imo too aggressive especially younger audience. The problem with lol right now is they doing the same shit that blizzard guy did in wow and doing in lol, destryoing the competetive spirit of the game. Remember if something is too easy to obtain is getting boring. You need to feel you really earned it.
    My biggest frustration with Diablo was that you where never sure when they change that and that. And i think that is the biggest reason why Diablo 3 is declining am not say is dieng, am saying is declining and more get bored of it. Those who active can see their friends not being online for ages. The game changed alot and people got tired of the paragon grind.
    Well is the 20th year of diablo this year the 31 december 2016. Am sure they will announce something. It should be big because you cant spend so many years without coming up with something? Steal the best ideas from other games is okay. but fck making it good and new.


    Edit: Fck consoles, keep it pc. more shining/glowing sets.

    posted a message on 30 million units sold and nothing new?

    Many good points.


    Well yes the engine probably does not support the new stuff, from what i seing from streamers lagging like no tomorrow.


    About the money. Blizzard is a big company, if they want and believe in something they will do it, money is not a question. They do not need money from Diablo to make overwatch, heartstone etc. better. Diablo also got their own division to make Diablo stuff etc.


    Heartstone was a huge succes with small money. An very addictive and good money business model i must admit it was genius. HOTS still need alot of time. Overwatch am not huge fan, overwatch is stunning graphic from titan mmorg fail they where working for 7 years on?

    I do not think wow will die or get back to 10 million subs. Wow still solid to attract a decent amount of players to make it worthwhile, problem is that the threat of incoming games who take those subs away is a big threat with many good title from asian.


    Diablo is a game you pay to play and they earn decent return. Am sure they working on something, but please for god sake show some pipeline roadmap soon in the 20th year of Diablo 31 december 2016.


    Dad is not angry, his disappointed that nothing new is on the horizon.

    posted a message on 30 million units sold and nothing new?

    Since Diablo 3 launch in May 2012 Blizzard have sold more then 30 million units. Almost to year later March 2014 reaper launched.

    Now we in March/April 2016 and nothing, just nothing about new content/expansion etc. Only speculation about jobs vacant.


    Blizzard know that they able to earn money from the franchise and the sales is beyond good. I know Diablo 3 had a rocky start with change in alot of things like auction house, gameplay etc. But the game itself is still solid.


    I must admit Diablo 3 is one of few games and willing to throw my money at, even if its a fck retarded small DLC.


    Please write your reason why you think Blizzard are so carefully not leaking anything out yet, and we have not seing anything "new" besides" patches.

    I really cave for something big to get me back playing the game, and not getting bored with it within 1min. Ofc. Maybe am not a big target segment, but am sure "new" content/exspansion whatever will sell alot.


    Reason why i think we have not seing expansion pack etc. for 2 years:


    1. Blizzard changed alot in Diablo 3 since launch, they now focus on patches here and there, while they working on a Diablo 4 version. Diablo 4 will ensure a clean release with all the experienced in Diablo 3 will ensure a solid gameplay with solid end game content focus only around PC.

    I know sources says that Blizzard wanted one more exspansion for Diablo 3, since last time i was around this forum. But 2 years in and nothing being release, so i think they changed the pipeline. So a secret Diablo 4 version might be underway.


    2. Blizzard Diablo 3 division waiting for competition to deliver their games, then they can "borrow" the ideas to their pipeline of released.


    3. They working on some pvp arena stuff but still not able to work around balancing/modes etc.


    Well i just hope they release something, am willing to send money already now. I sincerly hope they atleast not keep us in the dark. But hey, i admit am one of those who will flame blizzard for not keep their promised in forums, if they do not deliver. So i do understand that Blizzard dont just release anything until their sure.


    But hey its being 4 years since Diablo 3 release and alot changes since, but a game with solid sales and revenue does not deliver anything solid new stuff after 4 years is plain weird to me (besides patches). I know games takes long to make but seriously....Blizzard please let me throw my money at you. I will buy your xxxlxdeluxe edition.

    posted a message on Would this solve botting?
    Quote from Glowpipego-next

    This is how you fix botting.


    Blizzard buys all the botting tools out there. Find a way to ban them all.

    Game takes id from one of your computer components. Not telling you which. Motherboard, gpu etc. You wont know which it is.


    They send out a massive banwave. Computer ID ban every cheating asshat. They need to replace said computer part to be able to play again.


    A new gpu is a tad bit harder to replace than a game account.


    Problem solved.


    And the only people who have a problem with this solution. Are the ones botting.



    Its almost impossible. If they want no one to cheat that require alot of money = bad return of investment. D3 right now without rmah not worth the effort, they probably shutdown the most anti cheat division long ago with RMAH. Warden probably have not seing a update in long time.


    Back then when RMAH was alife, people was still able to cheat in rmah with scans etc.


    Even game like Lol tryed to have those who make cheat on payroll etc. and they constantly not able to keep up.

    Well let the sales talk. But damm Blizzard Overwatch division are aggressive on social media. On youtube on overwatch videos you not able to make a negative/constructive comment without they responding fast back. Someone even call me an idiot. double reply, same people all over the comments and focus on the "negative" defending overwatch so obvious.


    I do not want to tell my source and how i know it, but their are linked to Blizzard. Do not know if its desperate but ever since game developer got an eye on esport and the social aspect of a gaming getting big because of succes like LOL. They very aggressive on Social media/esport/twitch. But let the sales talk.

    posted a message on [Debate] Cheating in D3? What is cheating and what is not?

    It's not a secret that people who are well-known in the D3 community use these things. So I'm not sure why you're posting these things here. The fact is there are multiple reasons why the game is a failure (especially with the addition of leaderboards).


    The game design itself promotes botting/use of 3rd party stuff. The day they moved away from how difficult vanilla was, is the day everything has gone in the wrong direction or completely to the other end of the spectrum.


    Botting, map hacks, multi-boxing,....all of these add another advantage over a single player with no mods/cheats/hacks..... period. The fact that there is even a grey area tells me that the integrity of the game isn't what is important to them. Either promote the use of it, or say none of it can be used. I mean, anything that adds any form of AUTOMATION is cause for permanent ban in my opinion, but I'm not Blizzard and I do not have shareholders. I enjoy a game with a challenge throughout the entirety of gameplay not just endless paragon grinding, but again...they cater to what makes them the most money. Every one of their games is moving in the same shitty direction.


    Either stop buying their shit, or suck it up and play it. A company this size isn't going to change a god damn thing that doesn't benefit their (and shareholders) pockets. D3 is nothing but a multi-year beta test. And if/when they come out with another xpac, it will be the same thing with more and more bandaids each patch until they say "welp, we got what we could out of it....we can't make it any more stupid at this point..NEXT!"



    haha +1 for that reply. Microsoft windows was also a big beta test.
    back to op. everygame has problems with cheat. CS has always got problem with cheat and people keep making new ones. is a war battle like finding a cure in the medical world vs virus that constantly evolves.
    Lol got huge problem with bots and scipting too. The problem with Diablo right now is that they do not care. They got their money with and impressive sales. Their marketing/brand lotality scheme or whatever you want to call it is working in a limited way with free content patches.
    IMO the Diablo team did some great work with good additions. Am hopeful that we will see some awesome(longevity end game they can keep building on) stuff next exp or d4. If not i think the fans community going to explode.

    9# good points. Wow really turned to casual at some point, thats why i stop and tryed it again without getting hugged again. Not much innovation. Time is money and as i grow older, is hard to find time to play.


    Heartstone is a huge succes. But honestly Overwatch has to deliver some more gameplay and progression system as you mention. Maybe they just have not showing it yet, but am doubtful.


    TBH i was just shocked.

    Destiny, unreal and quake, doom are fine. my personal opinion is that overwatch just so bad, how was it even possible to go so far in the developing.

    Quote from Jaybonautgo-next

    Only realistic shooters succeed and have great gameplay, take Team Fortress 2 for example... oh wait.

    Remember back when I was a child. The best thing was to win over an opponent in computer games, and knowing on the other sceen was a person i totally crush and won over. Overwatch is like watching Bambi without her mother getting killed. You jump around tickling each other with good animation and keep tickling each other ( supposed to be Blizzard contribution to esport roflmao).

    I also notice all the youtube channels with overwatch are somehow linked with blizzard product and positive likes. something fishy.
    I will laugh my as s out if they want 100 dollars for some deluxy pack if they do not go with free to play concept.

    I just watch a youtube for closed beta for Overwatch new game from Blizzard. Am i the only one who thinks is just too many different ideas from other games in one game?


    as it is only kids will play it, i do not know if am too harsh but wtf where they thinking? Its so bad i have no words. is more bad then my english gramma.


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overwatch_(video_game)

    "Citing a desire to keep its game styles "simple", and because it contradicted its emphasis on accomplishing goals as a team rather than trying to achieve large amounts of kills, Overwatch will not contain a traditional deathmatch mode.[2][3] Metzen stated that "we have a long legacy of developing multiplayer games, and it came down to 'is it even possible to build a shooter that doesn't feel cynical, that doesn't feel cruel, that doesn't feel nasty? Can you build one that really promotes teamwork and relationship and having fun with your friends, and not getting killed with a thrown knife from halfway across the map as soon as you jump in?'"[12]""


    Is like watch Bambi without her mother getting killed. thats Overwatch.


    Am i just being too negative? So you guys think that Overwatch going to be a hit? Blizzard keep making crap game with crap content since they original team got split. So disappointing.


    from my answer on #5
