I don't think it's hinting at anything other than they're shifting their focus from 50/50 online vs. single player to something revolving around online play more. This won't effect me personally, but I know a number of people that enjoy the single player aspects of D2 much more than the online, and they will likely be disappointed with this when D3 is released.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

My topic wasn't about either of those things though. It was about the sheer terminology, i.e. the word clan being used as opposed to the word guild. That subject wouldn't fit in so well in the thread my topic was moved to, not to mention once a thread gets that big it loses attention to other topics. Overall I think the system needs revision in this area.Posted in: Site Suggestions and Questions

I figured that that was what happened/is happening, but I think that it hurts the integrity of the forum when a little house cleaning turns into unresponsive threads where you can't express your viewpoint, which, I believe, is the point of a forum.Posted in: Site Suggestions and Questions

I haven't been on the site for awhile, but I noticed this the last time I posted here, and just now with my first topic returning to the site. I made a topic asking people if they wanted the guild/clan system called guilds vs clans. My topic was then lumped with a ginormous topic asking whether people wanted guilds/clans implemented to begin with. This gripe isn't personal, but rather a concensus I've come to after seeing this happen a lot. If there is a systematic approach to this type of moderation, I think it should be revised.Posted in: Site Suggestions and Questions

Did I seriously miss that topic THAT hard? Wow.. guess I shouldn't have come back so soon; I need more practice at this whole internets thing.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
EDIT: My topic didn't have anything in common with this topic other than it mentioned guilds and clans....

I seriously hope that isn't Diablo's true form. It looks way too generic and less demonic than the previous incarnations. We need a Diablo that can walk upright and own us with a slap of the tail.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote fromWith the exception of World Of Warcraft, large/small groups have always been referred to as clans in Blizzard games.
Indeed, but the only game where it was an official mechanic (I believe) was Warcraft III. So I don't think Blizzard has any stock in clans, however it would be very cool of them to go with that over guilds IMO.

I'll be the first one to say that it is one of the very last priorities, but I feel that terminology is as much a part of the atmosphere as the graphics or sound. I personally think that this game should call its player organization mechanic, if it is implemented at all, clans as opposed to guilds. Diablo is centered around small cloisters of individuals coming together for their own self-interest. This stands in direct contrast to the definition of a guild where large groups of people organize around the same goal.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I only say blink to capture the idea of what it looks like in WC3 and WoW, a cooldown version of teleport. No reason to get up in arms over such a trivial thing. And yes, I agree with practically everything you mentioned. A frozen orb type cooldown would work well along with a LoS rule.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
