    posted a message on This is how you fir the RMAH for everyone
    Quote from swatecke

    The majority of the QQ over RMAH comes down to the idea that people who have played through endless hours of content to get their items, and the prestige and sense of accomplishment that comes along with that, will be pissed off if they see someone sporting better gear than they have that has been purchased with RM on the AH.

    Solution:

    For every item bought off the RMAH add a line of text under the item description and item stats that says " This item purchased on RMAH", or "RMAH item". I believe this will still enable people to purchase items on the RMAH but it will make other players that have earned their items the classic way feel more validated, and it will perhaps discourage gearing up solely by using the RMAH to purchase items.


    While that would work, it would be even better if there was a right click on item command for each item(right click a item, and it shows the entire history of a item. Rather it was crafted/who crafted it, traded, bought in RMAH, exc).

    Q. Do you have to play through softcore to unlock hardcore?

    JW: Oooh, good question, yes, you will have to play through to a certain point to unlock hardcore mode, I think it's through normal difficulty after you kill the end boss. I'm like 90% sure, so we could change our minds.

    JW: Umm, no.

    JAB: 12?

    JW: No.

    JAB: 13?

    JW: More than 13.

    JAB: 15?

    JW: More than 15, would you like to take another shot?

    JAB: 16.

    JW: You're getting closer, very slowly. It'll be in the hundreds.

    JAB: That was my next guess.

    I lol'd


    Come on now, It's only normal, and who would even start a hardcore char, without even knowing the game first.

    Yea, that was funny as hell.

    posted a message on Collectors edition, worth it?
    Quote from Harmonica39

    but this still is not entirely blizzards fault its just how the industry works...sadly


    The fact a digital copy is being sold for full blown retail price(there's many games I refuse to by, because there's no physical copy, and they want such a price) is how the industry sadly is, but the fact it costs more in another country then the US counterpart, is so Blizzard's fualt.


    Also in addition, most retailers assume the publisher of a product does the conversion when giving the recommended price.

    It's all Blizzard's fault for recommending it be sold at X price(the fact they run thier store this way, only goes to prove they are the cause of such).

    i dont think it wil be 70€ it will be 100$ and 100€ pretty sure about this


    Wha... what, if this is the case, and I lived in the UK, I would boycott everything Blizzard. What greedy ********, charging other countries more dough, because their money is worth more then the dollar. Infact people should report Blizzard to the BBB for running a scam.

    I never heard of a company that didn't go along with the conversion rates of other countries.

    PS. It's dumb, greedy **** like this that promotes private servers, and hacking in general.


    ..i dont know in UK, but here in Greece where i live, its not the company's fault... it's usually the local "sharks" who do that to stuff that they import...

    It's not the local stores that charge that much for the games, it's Blizzard. These are the prices when i would buy the digital version of the game from the battle.net store:

    SCII: 59.99 euros
    WoW/DII/LoD/WC3/SC: 14.99 euros

    And these are digital versions directly from blizzard... (i'd expect this to be cheaper without box etc)

    Good thing i had a friend working at a game store so i could buy SCII for 40 euros. I must say i don't like how we pay much more in Europe than other parts of the world.


    Yep, just as I thought, thanks for the confirmation(I knew it was highly doubtful the retail stores would've been the ones responsable for such pricing).

    Good job for posting these.

    Note to Blizzard(or any developer for that matter): Don't ever use the "accessible", and "streamlined" terms. They are very bad words when talking about games.

    Unless you only played online with yourself(and perhaps a friend who did the same), and never traded for any item(meaning every item in game, you found yourself), you had to deal with the dupers in one way or another(sigh unless you were the one duping, so you just didn't care).

    i didn't know how to dupe and i wouldn't care. but i never had items disappear either. i just think you had a personally bad experience with the online play. which again, not fact. sorry to hear about your terrible time :/


    I mever had items personally disappear either, but that didn't change the fact every item in game became utterly worthless. Duping items destroyed the enonomy, it was bad enough when SoJ were always duped, but when equipment started getting duped, even the best equips were meaningless.

    Um the game became utterly unplayable online, it was that bad(nothing in the game meant anything, due to the duping/hacking. In a game like Diablo, based on loot, that destroys gameplay entirely).

    um... thats STILL your OPINION. again not fact in the least. my opinion is online was just fine and i rarely dealt with duping or hacking. bots were a bit much but other then that i didn't mind and played strictly PVE. like all of my friends still do awaiting D3. so you have absolutely nothing backing up any of your statements of "fact". just your overly pushy opinion your trying to pass off as fact.

    Quote from Daemaro

    Well it sounds like the main problem they're facing now is how to keep your inventory and stash from being cluttered with runes, so I don't see this solving that.


    There's a very easy solution, make runes stackable(there aren't many runes to beginwith, so this would easily fix the inventory/stash issue).

    How would you stack runes with random affixes though? They want to keep the random affixes but manage the inventory currently.


    Bah yea that's right, they are pushing thet. Ok how about this, make bags with inventory slots in them(that can only hold runes), each bag will only take up 1 inventory/stash slot, but would hold potentially dozens of runes.


    If you need to actually see how such a system would work, look at the collection/gem bags in DDO(something simular to that would work perfectly).

    Quote from Zoltor


    If D2 didn't have single player, basically noone would've played it past the first 4 years(because it was unplayable. fact is even with online screwed up, people still were buying the game to play single player), and It's a fact the only reason reople went online at all after the duping became a big issue, is for PvP(which D3 has neither singleplayer or PvP).

    Also while most people probally have online these daye, plenty of people still have shotty internet connections(infact most of the world has pretty shotty internet connections. If you aren't in a major city, the odds are your internet connection is far from very good).

    These aren't opinions though, It's pure fact, I can't see how anyone can deny the most straight foward facts. DRM or simular setups is a poor model/will make people not buy the game, nomatter how you look at it, and I'm sure you are aware of the PC crowd, that will only play the PC game, for PvP(that's literally all some people care about sadly), so needless to say removing PvP will stop people from buying the game.

    Claiming people that can't/don't want to be online every second they play this game, would buy the game, is false (same with the PvP or lack there of), there's no room for debate, you can't get more factual then that.

    WOW shows how you don't know the meaning of the word "fact" is. lol. fact is something that is 100% true. which you have NO way of proving any of what you say besides YOUR personal opinion and pure speculation. so thats your opinion, not even close to fact. considering thousands and thousands of people still played D2 online past the first four years and i barley knew anyone who pvp'd. also my personal experience, but what wasn't just my personal experience was the fact that in norm nm AND hell 99.9% of all games being made were trading/PVE games. NOT pvp. rarely saw a "duelz" game. you can say "well all the PVE games were to get gear to pvp" lmao? IF that were true there would STILL be 10x more pvp games if "everyone" was doing it. considering the amount of people and only 8 ppl can be in a game. more non-facts from you.

    part of me thinks your entire post is riddled with HUGE sarcasm considering the amount of times you say "facts" about things that are clearly not even close to facts at all. lol

    "FACT" If you are one of the freaks whom only play a game for PvP, you wont be buying D3, because there is no PvP.

    Yeah there is. In fact, there's dedicated PvP. Just because it's not hardcore eSport PvP doesn't mean it's not PvP.


    Quote from Zoltor

    "Fact" If you can't go online, your connection is bad or you rather not deal with the hacking BS(which will be gonna on at some time, because Blizzard sucks at security systems), you wont buy this game, because there's no single player, and you need to be online to play.


    Those aren't opinions fool, why the hell would you buy a game you can't play, and if your main focus is PvP, why would you buy a game with no PvP in it?

    True, if you can't access the internet at all, you won't be able to play D3 and therefore (probably) wouldn't buy it. That being said, in 2012, the "I don't have internet" demographic is so ridiculously small, no company is going to sacrifice their vision of the game to cater to them.

    Before you start calling me "fool," I'd recommend you try to consider the opinions of individuals besides yourself (especially, for the context of this argument, the people designing and profiting off the game). Name-calling is kind of an admission of defeat in a debate.


    If D2 didn't have single player, basically noone would've played it past the first 4 years(because it was unplayable. fact is even with online screwed up, people still were buying the game to play single player), and It's a fact the only reason reople went online at all after the duping became a big issue, is for PvP(which D3 has neither singleplayer or PvP).

    No there Isn't, "PvP" systems have some kind of ranking system(D3 has none, not even a crappy ranking sysytem). PvP is a competition based concept, in D3 there is no competition, thus there is no PvP.

    It's hardly speculation less people will buy the game, It's a fact more people would buy the game if it had single player as well, and same can be said about PvP(having no ranking system defeats the entire purpose of have a PvP system, so the heavy PvP people have no reason to play D3 now, and the casual PvP people will have no reason to keep playing the game after they did the PvE stuff).

    Don't confuse your opinion for fact.

    Actually they'll be losing money, because not making what you would've=losing.

    That is a logical fallacy. You can't lose something you never had.
    If you stand to gain something and fail, you haven't lost it, you simply didn't gain it. There's a difference.


    You don't know how businiss heads think, do you, because millions not earned(or a millions less) = a million lost in the business world.

    That's not an argument against mine. "Business heads" are capable of fallacious thinking as well.
