    I would vote for both as they can both be fun game modes and it requires minimal effort for Blizzard to have both modes available. I can't say one or the other because it depends on my mood when I'm playing.

    (This is the cue for Blizzard fanboys to start picking apart my post word for word telling me why Blizzard should have only one pvp mode; TDM.)

    The game shouldn't be devolving at all.

    Devolving? There is more skill choice in Diablo 3 then in Diablo 2, the attribute system wasn't a fun/good mechanic in Diablo 2, Charms... they want to do this right and not delay the game any further, do you really want a not perfected mechanic or wait a bit for it to be added at some point in the future?

    People don't like big changes to mechanics they feel safe with, that doesn't mean the new mechanic isn't better.

    Yeah the attribute system sucked in D2. Did you even read my follow up post?

    Is it just me or does it seem like people would rather buy from third party pieces of s*%: than from eachother?? Makes absolutely no sense.
    Agreed, I'd rather pay safely and securely and not get jipped, but people seem to think its a bad think. And No skill points is Evolving, Now you can respec when ever you want plus its awesome they are already at maxed lvl. The only way to upgrade them now is by using runes which is fine to me, No AP is amazing i hated having the same cookie cutter build in D2 always enough str for gear then good Dex for block then pumped into Vit that's not customization thats shit. They are completely correct in doing this. They stated a perfect reason for no charms AT RELEASE I MIGHT ADD! They said they were lackluster and boring, They said they wanted to revam,p the system but won't have it out in time for release, which means they'll release it either in a patch or expansion which is fine with me because we are still getting it.

    How about not paying at all? How about Blizzard suing these sites? How about Blizzard banning the accounts of buyers? I laugh at people who got scammed paying for gear when they know it's illegal.

    You say free respecs like it's a good thing. There's basically no consequences for changing your skills on the fly. Besides from runes (if they get revised) but eventually you'll probably have a rune in each skill anyway. It turns the game into use these skills to kill this boss, then use a different skill combo to deal with mobs. You have a generic character that can be used in any situation. I would prefer the extra challenge of making your build work for mobs that it isn't wholly intended for.


    Quote from Winged

    No skill choice? I believe my signature is a good response.No attribute choices: This has been justified by the fact that in Diablo 2 there was a simple system that everyone used them for. As DiabloWiki.com - Jay Wilson Jay Wilson said:

    Official Blizzard Quote:



    If you want to know how to build pretty much any character in Diablo 2, you take as much Str as you need to wear the armor though you're targeting, and that's normally around 120 or 220 depending on what type of armor.You take 75 Dex because that's the amount you generally need for good block percentages.You take no energy at all, there's like one type of build you can make or a sorc that uses energy shield..Then you put everything else into Vit.That's a shitty customization system.. like, that's just not a good system.
    No Charms: Charms add nothing to the game that gear can't add. They rather put the extra stats into gear that have you lug around charms no matter where you hold them. This has been said by Blizzard.Currency Auction House: Blizzard won't be selling items, there will be level requirements to use the AH, and last and certainly not least, it would have happened through an unsafe, unjust, undeserving of the money third party vendor anyway. Blizzard's choice on this lets them put some kind of limitations onto it to make it work, rather than just letting thrid party sites farm and sell players over priced items. Not only that by the players form the economy, so if items are over priced and no one buys, than the price will come down. Economics 101.

    Which would you prefer? Choosing only runes to customise your skills, or customising all of your skills and traits with points alongside runes. It's obvious which option has more customisation. The attributes in D2 were rubbish. We have a much better attribute system in D3, where each attribute means something for every character. The items only require levels. If they actually spent the time balancing for radically different builds we could have the extra customisation of having really crazy builds. As it stands, the only way we can customise is through items and runes. Charms are not necessary but it's still extra customisation. Like you might want some armour with good specs, but it gives you attributes you don't like. Now if the armour gave no extra stats, and you had charms, you could choose the stats you like and still wear the armour.

    Blizzard could sue third party sites and ban sellers and buyers.

    I hope there's a STFU orb for people who are asking questions that were answered multiple times a long time ago.

    My bad for having a life and not sitting here hours on end stalking every forum post on here!

    No need, there are 2 wikis which should cover almost every question you have.

    Quote from Spawkuring

    If there's an offline mode, then characters and items won't be server-side, because an offline mode wouldn't work without putting all that information on the client. And if everything is on the client, it's easy to modify and hack. What you're proposing is sort of a hybrid solution, which is the same thing SC2 did, and SC2 currently has a major map hacking problem at the moment because of it (although in SC2's case, client info is necessary because of of how the game works, but the point still stands).

    Everything is easy to hack offline, yes, but surely all the important information when playing on battle.net is stored server side. I don't see how hackers can touch that with all the security systems in place.


    Quote from TagDerEnte3

    Think of it this way Offline is a good testing ground for all hacks and bots, that way they can fine tune their code without being detected so that way when they take their tricks online they are one step ahead of blizzard. By having online only they will probably go through many cd-keys and bannings just to perfect thier hack or bot. Which in turn slows down their progress and giving the edge back to Blizzard and it is easier for them to stay one step ahead of the hacks and botters.

    This makes sense.

    The thing is,this isn't necessarily going to stop hackers or pirates. It will only delay them. It's just ridiculous how all this time we've been told there would be an offline mode where you only had to authenticate it once, and now they've completely removed this. More than likely the reason is piracy as that effects sales.

    Of course it will stop hackers. It won't stop them completely (nothing can), but it's a very effective way of toning it down. WoW is actually a good example of this. While WoW has a botting problem, as far as hacking goes it's not much of an issue at all. The main reason why is because it's extremely hard to hack and exploit a server-side game. The most you ever really get with WoW hacks is the occasional speed-hacker and little else. League of Legends is also a good example of a relatively hack-free game. It's primarily server-side so hacks are rare, and hacking is regarded by the community as a non-issue because of how little it occurs.

    So again, don't stoop down to greedy publishers' level by blaming it all on pirates. This goes far beyond something so minor.

    Yeah but all the characters and items are still all server side on Battle.net. You can't touch those so I don't see how having an offline mode will make hacking easier online. Unless I'm missing something here.

    .. the whole copy protection, piracy thing, that's not really entering into why we want to do it

    I mean seriously? It's just an added bonus of cutting off people with bad connections or people that just want to stay away from battle.net. /sarcasm

    Quote from Crit

    There's no ladder. People like to know exactly where they stand. I WANT to know my losses. You can keep the monetary rewards to yourself, I'd rather not have to think of money while playing Diablo.

    Players can generate their own ladder system on sites just like this one. If that is your SOLE gripe in all this, I think you've gone on a lot of tangents.

    Wow that sounds like fun, manually keeping track of my stats. It could have been implemented so easily. It doesn't really matter though because of the P2W aspect. People buying the best gear/runes/gems are naturally going to be much more powerful than people who only have good gear.
