    posted a message on Why I need to play other games

    And what is the point of your answer.

    OP: For a long time the only game I played was Diablo 2. Metropolis_Man knows me since we hosted a lot of Single Player Tournaments for a D2 mod called Eastern Sun. Those were good times and it would be nice if we could have some of those tournaments in D3.
    I have been playing quite a bit of other games like The Elder Scrolls, Fallout 3/New Vegas/Fallout 4, Sub Nautica, Stonehearth, Timber and Stone, Elite, Torchlight 1 and 2, Rebel Galaxy.
    The important part is having fun playing a game that you are enjoying. If at anytime you are feeling burnt out take a break and do something else. It can be taking up a different hobby.

    Also I like the story mode the best but sadly I am forced to do bounties and rifts since the rewards in Story mode are low compared to adventure mode. I still do story mode from time to time.

    Solo play this season is not as bad as it was before. Since XP was nerfed GREATLY in higher rifts.

    Still solo play lacks everything, it's slow and boring. And it's still at least 1/2 effective than group play.

    That is why I love solo, wish it could even be slower since it is way to fast to level. I wish for the old days when it took a few hundred hours of game time to max a character level now it almost pointless to even have the max character level since it takes almost no time to get there.
    Part of the reason the End Game is boring is it is too easy and too fast to get there.
    Story mode is pointless now since for the most part it is quick bounties to get some mats, gear, and nightmare keys. Then the rest is Rifts and Grifts.
    Things are handed out too fast.

    posted a message on Is it really that hard to code a "pet attack" button?

    I do not think it would work out that well since for the most part combat is quite quick except for against a main boss and I find that pets do a good job of attacking them.

    posted a message on How do you not get bored of diablo

    For me I played Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 almost everyday and long hours at that. For the most part that was the only 2 games I played, especially when D2 was released. I played mostly mods since 2002/2003. I did not like playing online for the most part and preferred to play alone. I had to wait a month when Diablo 3 was released due to my financial situation and played for a few months but I was getting burnt out on Diablo games and ARPG's.


    I also played Torchlight 1 and 2 for quite some time before and after Diablo 3 came out (Some of the staff at Runic Games came from Blizzard North including the Schaefer Brothers).


    I came back to Diablo 3 from time to time as well as D2, Torchlight 1 and 2 and to an extent Grim Dawn over the years but it usually only last for a few days.


    When the console version for Diablo 3 came out and I did get an Xbox 360 and then the Xbox one I got it for both consoles and I find the game is better on the Xbox One since I have no lag since I play offline and I can really play wacky characters like a melee Witch Doctor with no movement skills and no run speed and no pets just melee and passive skills. That was a fun character to play. Still I get burnt out on Diablo games and ARPG's.


    At the moment I do have the itch but I have a feeling it will only be for a few days or so and then to some other game. A good part of the last few years it was Bethesda games but at the moment I am getting burnt out on them. At the moment I am more in the survival town building games like Stonehearth and Timber and Stone. Also I am starting to get an itch for Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 since they both got recent expansion/DLC.


    I play games that I am having fun at the moment. Some games like Diablo 2 lasted a long time and is the game I played the most in my life, followed by 1987 Sid Meiers Pirates on the commodore 64 then 128 and then PC, and then Wing Commander Privateer.


    I am not saying that I do not like Diablo 3 as much as Diablo 2. I do like both games but for me Diablo 3 came out at a time when I was getting burnt out on the genre and I do not know when or if ever will be at a stage that I am not burnt out or easily get burnt out on that genre. I do have fun playing Diablo 3 on both the PC and Xbox One when I get the itch to play the game but that itch does not last long. I might even get it for PS4 if I ever do get the PS4.


    Just have fun playing whatever game you are playing and if you are no longer having fun take a break and do something else and come back when you get the itch to play the game.

    posted a message on Diablo 2???
    Quote from Shapookyago-next

    It won't change because it's a lot of work to increase the resolution. Modders who did this also had to completely rework the interface because it breaks when increasing the resolution. Blizzard isn't putting that much work into D2 anymore. They only make sure it works on modern computers (and hopefully do something against spambots)

    There was still a lot of issues with that mod since the game is not designed for anything higher than 640/480. Yes even 800/600 is bugged since the AI for the monsters are designed for the classic Diablo II. The Zombies in the first area are the easiest monsters to see the difference.

    One of the hardest things to program is the AI and I doubt that Blizzard will be looking to improve on it since it is not worth the investment in it since the game is over 15 years. It is one thing to patch it to make it easier to have it running on newer OS. I have no problem with running patch 1.09 or 1.10 on Windows 10 since I prefer to play Diablo II with mods like Zy-El or Eastern Sun

    The last version of the mod does not run well on the Mac. It is best to use boot camp and use the Windows version.


    Also the game is designed for 1.10 and it needs the cd to be checked to function. There was a method to get it working with 1.12 but it was glitchy

    Sorry to bring that back since those days it was quite annoying and it felt like it did no good to report them, since they are back the very next time you logged back in.

    posted a message on Have you reported botters before

    I have never played a public game and only have played with people I knew.


    I did report account spammers looking for friendships when the auction houses were active to sell gold. At one point I think I was doing that about 10 times a day.


    Also I do not play this game that much since for the most part my 10+ years of playing Diablo 2 has left me for the most part Diablod out.

    Titan Quest is quite good and so is Torchlight 1 and 2.


    Max, and Erich Scheafer (Diablo 1 and 2) worked on Torchlight 1 and 2.

    posted a message on From Paragon 38 to 1800+ in 1 Normal Rift....

    The game can be (and usually is) hacked on console, since it's offline. If you want to play legit, play it on PC.

    ... And there are no hacks, bots, thud, exploits, etc on the PC version.
    Granted that gem of ease modded (exploited) gem did hurt other players by giving them a lot of paragon levels.
    I have never played it online on my Xbox and have no desire to do so since to me the game is a lot more fun to play alone and in offline mode. I just hope Blizzard adds a feature that allows new characters not to share anything with the other characters (paragons, shared stash, artisans, gold, etc. Then I would be real happy.

    How about trying a few 60% ers....

    You should be failing that quite often since it is only a 60% chance of success.

    posted a message on Full pet lazy build viable in 2.4?

    I will likely try a Pet build that does not use any active skills and just lets the minions do the work. Will not use the Zuni set since that is dependent on casting. Helltooth might be used until I get quite a bit of Ancient gear to support the LoN set bonus.


    I have been playing a build like yours in the PTR, I have not gotten that far since I only started the PTR not that long ago and was quite happy with the results and was able to do a level 40 without the best of gear. I was using a a cold pet doctor build everything was cold based so Bane of the trapped would be active and the cold acid cloud was only used if the pets needed the extra punch to kill faster (Elites+, and large groups of tough npcs). I used Cold Corpse Spiders as the main attack, I love that skill since even if the game is a bit laggy the spiders can still hit npcs.

    posted a message on Carn dart build not the best?

    Does it matter if it is the best or not the best. Play the build that you want to play and have fun with it. Good luck.


    I think it is likely one of the better builds and possibly people at the forum are down playing it so it does not get nerfed.


    I am likely going to play a melee HC Witch Doctor build in the upcoming season, likely will be in last place but that does not matter as long as I am having fun with the build.


    Softcore will likely have a Cold Corpse Spider Pet Doctor using Helltooth Set.
