    posted a message on How many will play Softcore vs Hardcore in D3?
    the first character i did in D2 was a barb in hardcore mode because i tought it would only be harder. I learned it the hard way on my first death in hell where there is the bonelord doing iron maiden. I was whirlwinding my way around since i socketed myself back in time with all flawless skull and i had a spear of life/mana stealing and i died pretty quick when i whirlwind into 5 of em.

    i was like, wtf , my characters deleted?! WHAT THE HELL!!!!

    but yeah ill probably make my first character in softcore and after that ill make one in hardcore, test the game, learn how it plays out, stability etc.

    most of the players that say on forum that will play hardcore will usually play softcore but they just like to look Pr0 [email protected]

    But i will, i want those skulls under my banner but it wont be on my first character, not like my barb in D2 that i made him harcore thinking the game would only be harder just to learn around lvl 32 that if i die, my character will be deleted.

    I would like to get the hang of the game/feel and having something to return to if i fail miserably.

    posted a message on Torchlight lovers hate diablo III?
    personnaly, Torchlight is the only action/rpg i did not like. People say snore-o-thon and i kinda agree with them. I didnt feel the action, nowhere , even with 15 squeletons i was slowly falling asleep. I didnt like any of their characters, i didnt like the art style etc. When people said to me "Torchlight 2 will pwn D3" i was curious. Its not because i didnt like Torchlight that T2 would be automaticaly bad. So i go on gamespot and IGN and watch tons of stuff on T2 and still ... i dont like it. The art style dont appeal me, the classes dont appeal me, the armor set dont appeal me. Im a fan of looking good and in torchlight, my character always looked bad and im REALLY NOT into steampunk and blunderbuss (blunderwuss). Having a forced pet , feeding him fishes etc. i really didnt enjoy my time.

    But i dont mind people playing the game, play what make you happy. I dont see why people make war like D3 suck Torchlight better or D3 is the bomb if you play torchlight youre a *****. Its so childish like answer, most of the people, even those who say it suck will probably end up playing it nonetheless.

    so play what you want but my opinion is "Diablo 3 will pwn torchlight 2 so bad and for so long that alot of people will skip it to play diablo 3 with cool classes , cool mechanic and try to beat the inferno difficulty!"

    probably because we wanted diablo 3 for so many years and it was going so well, we are at the beta!!! yeah! my excitement is at the top.

    but at the last minute they change alot of stuff, heavy stuff, not just saying crimson will be called ruby, they removed the points, the traits etc. I think its for a better world and im happy. But alot of people felt like their dream just burned. Now they must raise their voice in hope to avoid a cataclysm (hehe nice double sense no?)because the game is about to be out... at least they are feeling like that. Many people also hear a news from a friends or just read a quick paragraph and jump into the war. When i first read the changeabout the rune system (if it change), i was all against. Why? because i was missing a key element. You were keeping youre old stone and could put it back, i tought it would destroy it and would be stuck with the new, having ton of chances to downgrade myself, i tought it was stupid.

    So people miss read, some are fanboy , some are reluctant to change, it is the world but i think its for the better

    Quote from lMarcusl

    I'm slowly getting over the news and accepting the good side of this however I have a hard time overcoming one issue: Levelling up loses its reward. Attribute points allocate automatically, skill points are gone...past normal after all the skill slots are opened levelling up pretty much only increases the power of your character but doesn't offer you any choice, any tangible new reward for your hard earned experience. Yes you can get better gear but that might not prove to be true until something better actually drops for you which might happen like an hour later. The level cap has been decreased to 60 so that levelling up has more impact to it since there were less skill points with more powerful rewards. Now there are no skill points...and no reward for that hard earned level.

    there is in fact. Of course not tangible at each level. So gaining a level is like putting +1 in every of youre skills in D2, although you dont do it, it still happen. Gaining some different level, 10 - 20 - 30 and i dont remember the one for the skills, youll have to take a new skill an play with it, youll be so pumped up to receive youre other skills that you will level up quick. Of course around 35+ i can understand that there is no more tangible reward but still, im pretty sure well have some damn fun haha

    @johny : so they are been pushed by the shareholders now to release it on time, but the have spend a lot of time in other pointless characteristics, so there is not enought time now for balancing the skills and they drop it!?

    pointless characteristics? atm all they got out was fabulous and give me so much joy that i will play D3 this year and will be the best action rpg ever. I dont know where you see pointless stuff.

    balancing skills, i tought the video would have made it crystal clear, the point system is a fail. You will still be able to do builds, instead of having 2 powerfuls spells that you spam, all of them will be. In D2 when you put a point in a skill, what did it do? 10-20 dmg to 20-30 dmg. Yeah... so you would max that skill so at the end it would be lets say 120-130dmg. Now it will be 120-130 dmg but the first skill you got too.

    There will be plenty of build to do with the passive, gearing and rune system

    posted a message on D3 Total Playtime
    well i dont know a ton about the content in D3 in term of what well have to do, the only hint we got is the beta lenght

    so if we have 1/3 of act one and it take a hour, then doing the first act take 3hours. But its fail logic since we dont know what will be in game or how long is the other act. Since im not in a rush when im play diablo, will prolly take me longer since i take the time to enjoy and dont do "GO GO GO!!" like alot of my friends.

    So if you take D2, you do all the caves/dungeons you find, do all the quests, get all the way point and explore every room (basically what i do when i dont do boss run) youll probably score higher then someone going straight at the last boss

    @masterficher : why do you keep saying rushing? Rushing came for me after 2 years of diablo 2 and about the same for diablo 1. Rushing is when you took youre time, did all the quests, tested all the classes you wanted to test and is now farming for gear in a hardcore manner. I certainly wont rush in diablo 3 until i have a max witch doctor, wizard, monk at the least. Barbarian i feel its recycled but perhaps i will love it and im not a fan of the bow/crossbow although the demon hunter look really good.

    For the skill change though im all for. D2 point system was soooo dumb. Even other Action RPG that copied the formula did it better... well of course they did since diablo 2 was the first to do it, they improved the base idea. So yeah, you go and do lets say a necromancer focused on bonespear. So you take almost all bone talent, each point in a talent give you lets say , bone spear 1 give you (exemple) 10-20 dmg , you level and get a point yay! you dumb it into bonespear again for 20-30dmg yay! so until bonespear is not 20, you wont stop dumping point into it... I CANT WAIT FOR THE NEXT LEVEL!! IM SO PUMPED UP TO LEVEL!!! :D (sarcasm) it was cool back in time but now with what it is on the market, it would be pretty weak. Now lets say you play a wizard in D3. You have maxed out Meteor and Arcane Orb. So you go around, droppping a single meteor on someone who move and it miss... now you have to wait on the cooldown to use youre single good attack. You do an arcane orb, wait for the small cooldown, use it again, use it again, oh! meteor is up, you do a meteor, use arcane orb again until meteor is back. That is a 2 skill build. Now instead of having to put point into making 2 attack powerful, all of you attacks will be. So you will drop youre meteor again but now you can teleport in the middle of the pool of monsters and desintegrate them, teleport again, go slash a caster , meteor is up you drop it again. A big boss appear you send youre multi magic missile attack etc. You wont fear using other attack because they will be powerful too, so youll use 4 to 6 skills instead of 1 or 2.

    so yeah, im all for it, it will be really nice

    edit : Skill Points Removal Fuels Game Controversy .... hmm its perhaps a bit too much like title, ill correct it
    RMT addition fuels game controversy ... there we go

    well take it that way. The less you know, the more youll WANT to know. Let say you got a rune, you say to yourself.. hmmm i never saw what magic missile could do with a yellow rune! That push yourself to try it out, making the game last longer! :)

    posted a message on PvP vs RM AH, where are Blizzards priorities.
    Quote from soulzek

    Quote from ShadowGoat

    What I don't understand is why they are making it clear how casual PvP will be. I'm sure everyone can agree that the PvP community was MUCH larger than the real money trading community in D2. Why does it feel like they are giving support to such a smaller community with the RM AH and really limiting what we will be able to do with PvP.

    You have to take into account the game's time line because it is, after all, 11 years old. Back when the game wasn't dead (ps - I consider it dead now), the PvE community definitely overshadowed the PvP community. The reason why PvP is the big dog today is because there's nothing left to do or to discover in the PvE content. It's been digested and analyzed through-and-through. PvP is the only dynamic element the game has to offer at this point.

    Quote from ShadowGoat

    Blizzard should let the community decide how they want to play, not the other way around.

    You have a very powerful point (to me personally) with this because it is the sole reason I stopped playing WoW. They changed [drastically] how my class played, and I liked the old technique more than the new one. It just wasn't for me. So the whole game just wasn't for me because what I enjoyed doing was removed (due to being too powerful).

    i really do agree with youre first point here. That make alot of sense. I think the focus of diablo 3 for the first year will really be on pve, around 90 to 95% of the players will pve more then pvp. The more the people will grow weary of the content they done a thousand time , the more they will turn again to pvp, wich will have time to grow too.
