Have you seen the Clans and Communities?Quote from PietrakBlizzard could add some kind of lobby, just to show off our characters.
Or they could do it the PoE way: the "town" area with the vendors is public. Once you use a waypoint / go outside of town you are in your own instanced game.

I've PvPed in both games and the mechanics of it are identical. What now?Quote from Twoflower
Pvp the same as in D2 ? We have nothing like the flexibel system we had in D2. Pvp atm is a total joke. It's really clear from your comment that you never did any in either d2 or d3.Quote from overneatheDepends what you see as negatives. I don't PvP, but the PvP we have is the same as we did in D2, so there shouldn't be any arguments there. I do hope for a good version of it in the future.
Tha AH added lots to the trading experience, but again, if you never use it, how can you even comment on it?
No. Someone cheating doesn't devalue my experience. Never said that. Someone cheating devalues their experience. If your company's goal for the last 10 years has been to increase their online community (very successfully if I might add), then you'll just need to spend 5 minutes with the people in charge of said games and you'll understand why devaluing the experience and reducing the longevity of the game is extremely erroneous to that player's future support for that company.Quote from Maka
I really don't know, I only played it solo.Quote from Bleu42
I admittedly haven't played much of it, at all. Were you allowed to cheat online while facing another person?Quote from MakaCivilization II is one of my all-time favourite games. Absolutely loved that game, spent countless hours on it.
It came with an integrated cheat menu. It didn't devalue the game by one iota.
What I was saying was that, in a game that has next to zero competitive elements, claiming that the fact that someone cheats is devaluing your experience comes across as nitpicky.

It's not about you and your friends. it's about the game being accessible to a huge amount of people that can all cheat. New players are the ones that will get spoiled, not those that have already spent hundreds of hours into the game.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Also, to this day there isn't a well working pirated version of the game. Because of always-online.

As a gamer I like that my save is secured on a server that will last decades. My Diablo II offline saves are scattered on dozens of folders throughout several hard drives and many have been lost. It's also worth knowing I can play my characters on any computer I sit on, instead of carrying my saves like we're in the year 1995, or keeping copies of them somewhere online and having to reupload them every time I finish a session.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
As an employee in a similar company I understand perfectly why this is done. Cheating to such a degree devalues the experience players have in said game. They then have less of a pull towards the game and are far less likely to play it again or to remember the company with anything great. It demolishes the learning experience, which is 80% of the joy in these games and removes the reason to play at all after your gear is 100% perfect.
Many more reasons from both points of view, but it's getting pretty late and I have work in a few hours.

Trading is obviously non-existent outside your party, but I've never actually traded anything to anyone, except when dropping super high tier gear to new people. Which is lame anyway. Having the Auction House did not add anything to the Trading experience, so things have not changed one bit for me.

Don't collect anything for RoS.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The two things you'll need are plenty of gold and a ton of Paragon experience. The gold will come in handy for enchanting, transmogrification, crafting, re-gemming, etc. The experience will obviously boost your start by quite a lot. Having 10x100 means you should just grind gold.
Gems will be replaced almost instantly. Super gear will be replaced by level 68+, so the same day.

The scrolls used to drop quite a lot, but I've not seen one in a while. Their drop is either hotfixed or I'm just not seeing them. They used to drop randomly off monsters. It could also be that they were only dropping outside Rifts, where no one farms right now.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
They give 2 buffs randomly: Either an increased experience gain or increased damage against Elites. They aren't consumed but you can carry a big amount of them. Only one can be activated at a time. Obviously a work in progress.
What I see could happen in the future with these is, they could drop semi-rarely and should offer a better variation of buffs, but should be consumed on activation.

Currently on Beta the general chat is pretty alive. People now actually talk about stuff instead of spamming trade offers. To be quite honest I've never felt the game more alive than with this Beta chat.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
