    posted a message on Message from European Clans (About Botting)

    Alright guys, starting a fight about hud and other things while we are desperate about something to be done against the botters is just silly.
    Take that bs to a new post, if you don't see the big problem in the game with the botting and start arguing about hud and other things when the post is about botting you clearly don't care about the game.
    @Angry_Roleplayer I am 100% clean and stream diablo 3 6 days per week.
    I can get a rank 1 without anything, infact I got rank 1 taken from me by a bot season 8, why are we talking about hud and stuff here though?
    It's about botting, help us man, focus on this first since this is the main issue with the game atm.
    I just want us all to come together and fix this issue first and then we can talk about hud, helper and other shit.


    You honestly think that cheats and botting are completely seperate issues or that either is worse than the other?
    I never cease to be surprised that the so-called more committed players of this game are so conflicted on this issue that they either cannot or will not simply call a cheat a cheat. There are NO shades of gray here, either play the game as intended or make use of 3rd party programs that adapt code and be a cheat.
    Those that do cheat certainly do not hold any sort of moral high-ground to cry for action on a different type of cheat. So I challenge you to call on Blizzard to take real action that addresses all cheaters.
    That is unless you've something to hide...

    This is so poor i have to list the wrongs,


    That it took you 12 godamn seasons to clean your own homes enough to feel confident on calling out botters is truly jaw dropping.

    That after 12 seasons you think a few letters in front of your names makes your opinions carry more weight than the rest of the community.

    That in 12 frikking seasons none of you - and i mean NONE OF YOU, have bothered to take a stance against cheating and using THuD,

    That youre stupid enough to put your names to an open letter that condemns only botting, with no mention of THuD anywhere within when THud is a far more serious problem.


    Its so ridiculous it borders on stupidity.



    Then you say this....

    "All of our listed clans are approved, and not accepting botters (still and no more) And we did our jobs which were extra weight on our shoulders if you consider.."

    Approved by what? by who? YOURSELVES? why should the community care if you approve yourselves when it took you 12 seasons to do it while most of the community wer and have alweays been clean? and what weight? checking yourselves to be clean?


    You godamn bunch of petty imbaciles. Theres NO WEIGHT AT ALL in not installing 3rd party cheats. Any decent clan worth joining should always have an active no cheat policy that all members should not only be happy to agree to but should actually be alert enough to police it themselves, that what a clan is. A cheat free environment for organised gameplay.


    Come back and see us when you can claim to be 100% cheat free, then we can l;augh at you taking 12 seasons to do that too.

    Remove Region wide ladders make them clan and friend list only and guess what... D3 is fixed.


    Who gives a toss what level some total stranger has completed, when the only players you have bragging rights over are clan/friends anyway.

    Found a botter? remove him from your clan / friend-list, not such a problem anymore is it.

    Dont like Thud users? remove them from your clan / friend-list, theyre not a problem anymore either.


    One simple action taken and were left with the same game that we have now without all of this mock drama, because after years of people moving on to other games, being top of leaderboards really doesnt mean a thing anymore anyway.

    thud in no way gives u any advantage... all it does is allow you to farm more efficiently.

    So desperate to make a defence that you spun the facts so much your own brain is still spinning and cant remember what side of the arguement youre on? Or is it just that youre so deceitful a game player, that lying isnt a problem either?

    if not lucky you can have at least 1 or 2 primals and rest ancient after 1 week

    Well i have no idea what class youre playing but i can tell you youre version of unlucky is what i would call very lucky, playing every night for the first week would only give me a few ancients, on an average season after the first week id still be waiting for either Taskers, Mask of Jeram or that bloody Short Mans Finger to drop or worse still more than 1 of them and just having any one of those 3 missing would make it hellishly difficult to even get to 70 to even allow primals the chance to drop.
    D3 is a great game in its own right but the experience of playing alone to within a clan is vastly different, also the choice of character and obviously the time invested, so I find it difficult to have sympathy for anyone that complains the game isnt grindy enough or over too soon when they have no experience of the true grind because theyve bypassed it by playing in groups.

    posted a message on Wow 3105 bounty mats gone forever..

    I said in an earlier thread i came into this patch with 600 bounty mats - from the whole 600 i only got 2 ancients, it took 350 (70rerolls) to get a yangs recurve and the other 250 (50 rerolls) got me an orb of infinite depth for wiz. The upgrade to legendary definately has a 1 in 10 chance of proccing to ancient but to reroll a legendary and have it proc ancient definately does not happen at a flat rate of 1 in 10.


    From past experience I actually think that the proc rate might be influenced by the starting amount of mats, I have far more success with rerolling if i do a single set of bounties and use them following a rift where ive recieved no ancient at all, then a reroll legendary will usually go ancient within those 3 rerolls or on a repeat of the bounties/rift /reroll. But my experience was that with a stockpile of mats that was no longer remotely true at all.


    To further prove the point since the mats were spent im back to proccing ancients at the same rates i normally recieve them


    Bad RNG would make me have to spend 100ish mats per item over the course of those 600 mats, even a really terrible streak of luck could explain the wait until spending 350 but to then have to spend 250 for the next ancient hints at something a lot worse than just being unlucky, so I certainly wont waste my time stockpiling again.

    Always gona be people that are sad when items change and they dont have the time to gather the loot back again. This is not a first world problem

    and this will always be in the game, why would blizzard make an acception for just primal items?.

    I also have a job, hobbys, training, all stuff normal people have to do..and if blizzard makes changes i just accept it. And i am a Season player.

    Well you can ask why theyd make an exception for primals and it is a fair question, but you could always ask why would they even introduce Primals in the current way too (minimal drop rate for a minimal upgrade).
    Theres plenty of different points of view on Primals and thats what gives us these great discussions, it seems to me theyre a reward for the grind and being able to keep a primal for an obscene amount of mats would be a similar reward for another grind on top, so while it might not fulfil logic to you it does to me :)

    Well the best thing to come out of the change or reaquire debate for me is that the Small Mans Finger actually did get the change to the buff. Several seasons have passed where that ring was the only item responsible for many extra hours of delay in the gearing process. Last season alone it didnt even drop for my WD and I only aquired one at all after a friendly Barb gave me his drop.


    On a slightly related note has anyone else noticed this patch appears to have lower rates of proccing Ancients using the cube to either upgrade to legendary or reroll legendary?

    For the former im seeing about 1 in 15 at best and the latter seems broken at best - I used 350 bounty mats to get a single ancient Yangs, (70 rerolls) and a further 250 (50 rerolls) got me just 1 more item as Ancient.

    Yeah, really disappointed i lost my Primal Mask of Jeram, but I do like the idea of having to play all the classes again to recollect the buffed gear.


    Its a strange thing really to be so happy and disappointed at the same time.


    It feels like Blizz decided to remove the original plan of extra stats on primals but still kept drop rates too low, the best compromise I can think of is that we should have a new reroll option for primals - a lot more expensive but allows the item to stay primal,or as a friend suggested maybe a bad luck protection to ensure a Primal every for every 3 or 4 hours worth of actual played time.

    posted a message on Challenge Rifts - A missed opportunity or an unfinished mode
    Quote from giedryfasgo-next

    WTF....They meant to be totally unplayable? Put together by someone really challenged or randomly generated, no clue tbh how the builds for Crifts are made or randomly generated. If theyre randomly generated would make sense... Regarding your stated purposes - why even make such builds which are just pure trash put together? So those guys who don't play much and go like 800paras or less during season gonna end up playing trash builds from Crifts and then spread misinformation through the community or even use those Crifts trash builds as ''proper ones'' for some farming purposes and make the players from theyre group to suffer of theyre uneficiency :D As horrax said it just a pure waste of time to do those Crifts and getting annoyed by the trash build just for those few mats. We can just choose not to do them at all, but why then even blizz wasted time implementing them rather then adressing some other issues that matter...



    Ooookay you might need to get someone else to explain this even more simply for you but ill try anyway...
    The system is copying a rift completed by a real player in the gear they were wearing at the time, and I say again they are not targeted at the type of player that gears to the meta or checks on this site or any other community sites for current popular builds. Now if you can just engage brain for a few seconds, you could work out for yourself ...
    1./ The build isnt likely to be complete, because if it was a complete set the time would be very fast and be very difficult for a player with no experience of playing that char or gearset to beat.
    2./ A player that doesnt frequent message boards and fan sites is unlikely to be in a position to spread anything to the community let alone pretend to be a leading authority that then spreads misinformation.
    3./ Anyone who plays in a group is hardly likely to think a set of gear that wont clear T13 is the finished build.
    If you dont like CRifts thats fine, if you want to complain on forums then its fine too, its your time to waste, but if you want to misrepresent to such levels of stupidity then be aware someone will pick you up for it.

    And also i have to agree with UncleDan. Diablo is about loot and about fighting hordes of mobs, the whole Grift system felt like a stretch to me, CRift feels a lot more like it should be a sort of trial or optional intro for a new player to show how a char/gearset works although I could see it working as a sort of race mode though with either a split screen or shadow of your opponent to race against for those that care for that sort of thing. At least then it would have a real element of competition not just a time on a board to better.

    posted a message on These D3 devs are a joke

    I dont understand people that complain that a game isnt the same as its predecessor, if you liked the other game that much carry on playing them, if the newer game was more of the same, youd just be moaning that its just an expansion pack.


    If you dont like where the game is going then its time to find something new, screaming for the old days doesnt give you any more influence than any of those that still enjoy playing, you may not want to hear it but for every player that is unhappy there are lot more that are just fine.


    As for complaining about buffs, if you cant see anything beyond Necro at this point that is completely your fault, just from reading those buffs im looking foreward to seeing the Helltooth buffs for WD and Multishot for DH but most of all to collecting all the new Legos, theres over 50 that will need to be replaced so that will mean plenty of time playing all classes. (although it is a shame im going to have a few primals that are now only good for mats :) ).

    posted a message on Challenge Rifts - A missed opportunity or an unfinished mode

    Here we go again... Thanks to a section of players that either couldnt read properly or wanted so badly for challenge rifts to be something they werent, a lot of misinformation was spread about challenge rifts. Unfortunately that means a lot of people are confused at what they are and cant understand them at all....


    They are NOT meant to be some super difficult pushing environment for paragon farmers to flex their e-peen nor for those that cant paragon farm to flex theirs either.


    They were designed to fulfill 2 purposes the first of which was for people to experience different characters and different builds to what they would normally play, they are for the silent majority, who play alone or only with a friend or two and arent committed enough to follow the news, seek out builds or follow the meta. Since youre here this means the first part is not targeted to you in any way. Their second purpose was to provide a controlled environment where those ultra competative players can lay down times for others to try to beat.



    Now for the first part they look like they should be quite a success, they provide an intro build for the less active p[layers to experience, dont forget they are not designed to push people into a specific build nor the meta so it doesnt matter if the build isnt perfect, its more about experiencing a different playstyle, However for the second part I think theyve missed the mark woefully, partly due to the run being too short, but mostly because i fail to see just how much optimisation anyone can make in a 4 min rift inside a corridor. If Blizz are serios about Challenges they need to be on open maps where there is a lot of room to provide custom routes.


    So overall they are working as intended although they werent communicated well enough to the experienced players and could do with a little tweaking regarding layout.

    posted a message on Disappearing Gems

    Yes I warned about it a while back, its caused by logging out your client too quickly.

    For some reason theres a large gap before the server is updated, relog or take action too quickly and the game can see you moved a gem but not where to so it ends up just removed from your account.


    Its a shame youve lost a 96 but on the plus side now this has happened to you, you will, like me be fully aware, wait after changes and not lose any more gems this way.
