• posted a message on I got banned for botting when I never botted!!!

    Well I've never been banned before so maybe I'm getting this wrong, but they say your account is now closed. So doesn't this mean you've already gone through a temp ban period in the past?

  • posted a message on lag fixed?

    I'm getting more and more salty every season;


    We've got damage bonuses IN THE THOUSANDS for everything now. Every season it seems Grift damage on X lvl is reduced, just so players can feel an artificially inflated sense of progression because now it's a few Grift levels higher than last season. It just... it goes on man.


    It's la-depressingya yo.


    Here's hype for D4! *sigh*

    Weren't we told this year's blizzcon is going to be huge for Diablo?


    I'm going to hold off on lighting my hair on fire until after blizzcon. If diablo is barely mentioned, THEN I'll grab a pitchfork.

  • posted a message on Back in the day when i realy liked the game.

    I think it really says something that more and more of these threads are popping up;

    You can get EVERY piece of gear you need for a build within HOURS of hitting max level. You hit 70, get your free set, farm T10, gamble a bit and upgrade specific rares.

    Legendaries drop like candy, so the only thing you're 'farming' in this game is now paragon, which to put it plainly is just boring.

    Every level of difficultly below the max is trivialized mere hours into a new season. Might as well go back to normal / NM / hell.

    The power level with each PATCH increases. It'd be one thing if it was expansion based, but holy hell having a set increase your damage by 3000% is just ridiculous.


    And it goes on. I honestly in my hearty heart heart hope that that position posted for an 'unannounced Diablo project' is either some sort of Diablo mmo, or D4, because this franchise needs a brand new start from the ground up.


    Aaaaaaaaand, /rageoff.

    The reason we can't xmog 2h maces into 2h swords is because the animation is different, you can only xmog in the same animation category, unfortunately. I'd love to see this change though.

  • posted a message on Ban wave in EU and US
    Quote from Chainer88go-next

    So I'm rank 1 paragon NA now at 3130 by playing 16 hours a day on average. Got Rank #1 4 player and 2 of my team got banned so I guess my 4p clear should be removed? It's not the players job to be the botting police lol. I'm here to play at a high lvl, push leaderboards, and have fun. I hate to speak the truth but you guys think this ban wave fixes the game are wrong. The root problem is the paragon system giving too much bonus damage to anyone who can and is willing to play all day, everyday. If anything botting makes the game better. You should be able to play this game 6-8 hours a day and not feel like you are at a huge handicap because you are doing 70% less damage than the top paragon players. Not only does this make people feel like they can't compete but it also splits the player base where groups of people only play with others around the same paragon lvl for efficiency reasons. Anyways have fun with your little witch hunt and feel free to nerd rage at my post = D

    Paragon is absolutely a problem, no doubt. I'm actually pretty happy a constant rank #1 leaderboard player has said so as well, considering all the counter arguments such as 'paragon doesn't give very much power, so it doesn't matter'.
    However, to your first point; yes. Your spot should be wiped because you had players in your 4 person that were botting. Simple as that.

    Quote from Autocthongo-next

    That free set counts for nothing as far as actually farming goes. Saves you two or three days of play. Perfect gear still takes a considerable length of time, with XP farming following that.

    Sorry but in my opinion, getting all the gear you need in a couple days and then spending three months sifting through thousands of legendary drops hoping for the same thing with a couple more stats =/= an actual, fun loot hunt. It's become paragon grind: the game, and it's just disappointing.

    what happened to the loot hunting? am i the only one missing the rush of hype when a leg dropped back in the day? is it all about paragon grind today?

    Pretty much this.
    The Diablo Grind has shifted from trying to find gear, to farming experience. Huge legendary drop rate, targeted gambling, upgrading specific rares into legendaries and even a whole freaking set one day into a season means there's no more real gear farming.
    Which, honestly, is one of the biggest let downs I have about D3. A lot was fixed after D3's launch, and a LOT of the backwards stuff was removed, such as having rares beat legendaries in stats. However, I feel like this is one of those backwards ideas that's going to linger for the rest of D3's days. *sigh*.
