    posted a message on Lack of devs responses on PTR...

    You know, I can only refer you to this topic:

    https://us.battle.net/forums/en/d3/topic/20752166128


    I and others feel that they really never had any real dev<->player communication for D3. WoW communication is used as an example in the topic. Now, we understand that the D3 team is different than the WoW team, but the way that the WoW team has communicated with players throughout the years has been a completely different thing than what we've seen for D3 and WoW is a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better game as a result of consequently involving players in decision making.


    That's not to say that game development is a democracy - it's Blizzard's right to do whatever they want to do. But at the same time there's been sooo much effort by so many players to provide fantastic feedback for D3 on various forums and most of that has been ignored. We're all losing out on what could've been a much better gaming experience as a result of not having a good forum for throwing ideas back and forth because these communities are filled to the brim with real veteran players who are full of great ideas.

    The days of getting 15x group xp is gone with the loss of XP leeches. The current number is ~3x or so, which, imo, is a good spot. Diablo 3 is NOT a single-player game with multiplayer capabilities, its a multiplayer game with single-player capablities. Having SOME disparity between the solo player and the group player is fine.

    Blizzard never said that this is "primarily a multiplayer game" or anything like that. - I've seen many say stuff like that. They absolutely never claimed that it was anything of the sort. There's a popular notion that it is so, but it is not. It was never advertised as such. - Sure, D3 has multiplayer capabilities if you will, however D3 is also the latest child of a strong tradition - the Diablo series have a tradition for being very much a solo player friendly experience. I think it's freaking great that there's a good multiplayer effort involved, don't get me wrong, but solo play always was and still is a very important part of the D3 experience. Anyone saying it is not so are making that up, pulling arguments out of thin air.
    I agree that D3 solo play is and has been getting less love than multiplayer and i don't like it at all. Blizzard never said that D3 "is primariliy a multiplayer game" but never the less they did stress out that multiplayer is somewhat more important to devs

    I would rather say, they might have expressed that the multiplayer aspect is something that they are focusing on.

    I hope so, I really do. We've seen some sensible changes the last two patches.

    There is no good reason whatsoever that Group Play should yield like 15x the XP in comparison to Solo play. I wouldn't mind it at all if I knew that I could achieve some higher Paragon levels playing in groups at any time, however .. really ..

    .. I just think it'd be great to know that I can keep cruising on playing my Wiz or whatever playing solo after a hard day's work, and not have to worry about some totally inflated XP levels out there. I'm as good a player as those group players and the only difference is that I just want to chill out at the end of the day.

    - And you getting 15x the XP is quite simply wrong and it doesn't make sense tbh. Give us ONE good reason why. - 30% more XP - no problem. You wouldn't lose out in any way anyway.

    posted a message on I think the future of D3 is looking bright tbh.

    As many of you know, they've recently announced that some of those folks working on D3 have been transferred to the WoW team. Many have voiced the opinion that "this is the end of D3" or something like that. - Well, I just don't think that that's how it works. I've played Blizzard games for over a decade and I've read those "blue posts" all this time. You get a certain feeling of what's going on when you follow things closely. They're not at all going to "let D3 die" or anything like that, but they ARE going to throttle down a bit regarding new content probably. Might just happen that they're working on a new Diablo game btw.


    Personally I can only say that if this means that they'll spend less time on "wardrobes", "gz screens" and bling nonsense, all the better. D3 will be kept alive for 20 more years probably and perfect every single aspect of the game. We might see a few new things here and there, but if what's in store for us is seeing D3 being polished over and over for the foreseeable future, well, I call that a win. I'd much rather see the devs abandoning the development of new things in favor of every single aspect of the game being perfected over time. I'd prefer a car with a solid, working engine over added bling any time. If D3 wasn't already great, 15-20 years of polishing certainly will make it absolutely legendary and no one can beat an effort like that.

    Quote from Nachtengo-next

    Srlsy i realy can't understand why things like this escalate that quick. Guys please i would prefer a more serious condition.


    Relating to the topic:


    rebjorn you are right :-). Or perhaps i got to old too, i still remember times when it was different in boards. Respect was a good point yeah.



    funny how its always the guy with the posing frog avi that tend to start useless threads like this. just saying.

    That's probably one of the most illogical things I have ever seen online. gj

    Quote from Shapookyago-next

    damn, you guys need to learn about jokes. life is more fun with them...


    also I was hinting at the famous quote of Socrates:

    “The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.”


    the internet is the same as before. your memory is just selective. All our memories are selective. That's how our brains work.

    Edit, posted something very bad a as a reply. You don't want to know.

    Quote from baabayagago-next

    TLDR: Being nice to one another goes a long way. Treat people as you would like to be treated. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. =)

    Did you beat the brigand defenses though? (edit: QFG1)


    Any kind of social networking is a big no no for me with all the BS that it brought to us.

    This. Facebook is venom. You don't have to be paranoid to feel that way, you only have to know the flip side of it.


    I'd probably agree with the rest of your post also, read it twice.

    Besides that i cant agree with you that it was better or worse in the past. Im browsing and participating in online forums and discussions for about 8 years now (nothing compared with the lifetime of the internet) and personally i cant confirm that the conversations got rougher or whatever.

    There will be a day when you will NOT be able to enjoy privacy online.

    Likely for you or surely for your children/grandchildren.


    Please don't shoot the messenger. I think you know that I am right.

    "You gotta watch your steps nowadays"
    I will never watch my steps on the internet. Because if I had to do that, I would do something really illegal or I'm living in a country with a highly suppressive government. I guess the first one wont be the case and I'm lucky this goes for the second one too.
    But i will never watch my steps when i post on sites like diablofans where i just discuss d3 related stuff (till now). Why would i mind if someone attacked me personally over an opinion of mine?^^ Its just a game... and this someone obviously had some issues of his own.

    Besides that i cant agree with you that it was better or worse in the past. Im browsing and participating in online forums and discussions for about 8 years now (nothing compared with the lifetime of the internet) and personally i cant confirm that the conversations got rougher or whatever. There were trolls 10 years ago and they will always be there. But a healthy community (and i think this website here has a community like that) wont get disturbed by those trolls^^
    The one thing i would agree on is that some trends on the social media sites (facebook etc etc) and the behaviour of many people with each other on these platforms developed in a negative direction. But then again, I would not project these developments to other platforms on the internet. Especially content-specific communites are pretty strong and mostly have some good manners and rules that are respected by the community.

    It's about the tendency. It's about the direction. Make no mistake, we will lose all that freedom if no one speaks against proposed changes. Perhaps we don't see it clearly today but we certainly will in 15-20 years time. The experiences we had back then will be completely nullified and we will all have to endure a new regime that we never hoped for or wanted and the magic will be completely lost. THAT will happen. Perhaps for you, perhaps for your children or your grandchildren.
