    I'm completely fine with them removing something that's obviously broken in the middle of the season. I don't agree that just because the season is still going on, something shouldn't be fixed.

    Have online and offline modes completely separated. Problem solved.

    Not quite. Unless you made a completely separate game for offline mode, which means all new code / network code ect, people will be able to hack into the online mode, because they have the complete game's architecture for them to split apart from the offline mode.

    BUT, if you have the majority of the game, or at least all the important files, code, item numbers, characters stats and items on server side only, you almost completely eliminate all those hacks. Some exploits will go through, and then be fixed, but I have yet to see any small charms with +1000 to all skills.

  • posted a message on Did Blizzard just say "Ok, let us give players unlimited gold if they so desire" ?
    Yes, that's exactly what they are saying.

    You can't trade gold - you have to earn it yourself. There's really no reason why players shouldn't be able to farm gold very quickly - gold on it'self gives such a very small, minuscule edge that it doesn't matter if players have billions. To craft you still need the plans, the required mats that you only get from farming kills, as well as gems.

    I don't see a problem here at all.

    Why are you guys so obsessed with keeping a prefect balance of core stats? It won't actually hurt anything at all if one core stat has three classes; smart loot for your class will still be the same percentage of drops, meaning you won't find a single percent more of items that aren't for your class then you do now.

    We already know the 2nd expansion of SC2, so more details definitely, but not their huge announcement.

    WoD for WoW is going to be out, so nothing new there.

    Hearthstone doesn't really have expansions, just more content patches, maybe some news there.

    There's nothing left for a huge announcement besides the next expansion for D3. If you remember, they didn't even do a 2012 blizzcon BECAUSE they didn't any huge news. Blizzard always saves at least one big thing for Blizzcon.

    So my guess is the next expansion.

    I really want to believe that, but i can't imagine they're very far into the development of the next x-pac.
    They might talk about some of their general plans for the game in the next expansion, and maybe just maybe even reveal the location, but i doubt that it will be a full-out announcement with title and cinematic, as it just seems a bit close.

    Going off of how Blizzard manages their expansion cycles, they started the next Xpac immediately after RoS was finished (which would mean it's been in development for a little under a year, considering RoS was 'finished' 2 months before launch). Just like how they've already started the next WoW expansion, and WoD isn't even released yet. D3V released mid 2012. RoS was announced about a year later, mid 2013, launched early 2014. It makes perfect sense to see an announcement for the next Xpack at the end of this year, which will be close to a year after RoS launch.

    Title, sure. Cinematic? I'd like one, and because those are generally made off to the side of development, we could definitely see one.

    I would assume that for duel wielding, it's averaged.

  • posted a message on something i dont understand about items
    They wanted the elemental damage on weapons to actually do something, and at one point cold damage slowed, but so far they've shelved the idea. Which means the elemental damage range on a weapon doesn't effect anything, because the element that a skill / rune does over-writes it.

    It does however effect the Wizard's tal rasha set bonus; The element type on your weapon will trigger the meteor of the same element.

    I think it's fine. Actually I think some of the other ones should be buffed.

    I've only been able to solo grift 30 and beat the time so far, as a condemn sader without unity combo. The only time I don't just stand there and fire is electrified, it forces me to play smarter with kiting and the environment, and I like that.
