    posted a message on New player, first play through and I'm pretty sure I broke the game

    I can vaguely recall when I first got the game (on release day) and my friend and I played trough most of it together. I was a DH and he was a Barb. It wasn't very difficult (this was just Normal mode, of the Normal/Nightmare/Hell/Inferno options that existed back then) but we did die here and there. I think a big difference is the nature of loot drops though. Back then rare (yellow) items were actually rare and there were no smart drops so even when you did find a good item it probably wasn't for your class, so overall your gear was much worse.


    Back then it was like Diablo 2 in structure; no endgame, just the story to play through and if you wanted to farm you could do so in some area of the story.


    Now the focus is 99% on endgame features that were added around the RoS release.


    It's too bad they don't open torment 1 difficulty for new players from the start. You can actually start to experience challenge at that difficulty when playing through the story with a fresh, no-paragon character.

    posted a message on Are the new set bonuses too OP?

    Welcome to every D3 patch. It's called "power creep" but with this game it's more of a power stampede. Every patch provides builds are are ridiculously OP compared to the previous patch's builds.

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Magazine?

    No offense but I doubt I would read it. I think magazines aren't well suited for providing the type of information you're implying (news, builds, patch info) because it's all info that people can check quite easily when they need it. If there is some super exciting news about D3 development, hardcore fans of the game typically know about it within hours or a day. If someone comes up with a meta-shattering build, same thing. It all just shows up at websites so fast that I worry, after you've put the production time into your magazine issue and get it released, the information will be old or even obsolete.


    It basically boils down to the problem all print media faces in the internet age. I realize your magazine is digital and on the internet but it's still kind of the same issue developing a periodical publication when there are constantly-updating streams of news and information that people are probably going to access first.


    There are just better ways for people to seek information of that nature. I think a magazine has value when it's something like stories or interviews of people or opinion pieces or exclusive information that can't be found somewhere else. Mostly stuff that people aren't seeking because they need answers or information, but something they will enjoy reading mostly for entertainment when it comes along.


    That said, if your goal is mainly to practice photoshop/writing/etc, by all means practice. You will still have readers and will probably get some good feedback from them to help hone your crafts, so it's almost definitely worthwhile for you in that regard.

    I filled it out, but this isn't a random sample. It's probably going to be biased toward males aged 20-30 w/ lower-than-average activity levels, which are all factors that can impact the responses to the types of questions you ask.


    If you posted this at different forums/websites/etc then that will help (though not so much if they are all gaming sites)



    I'm a 31 year old firefighter who drinks 40+ ounces of coffee a day. I also play in mens lacrosse leagues and snowboard as my forum handle suggests. You'd be surprised who plays video games lol.

    I'm not surprised. "Biased toward" only means he's going to get more males, more 20-30, more inactive, than a truly random sample of humans, if his sample is from an MMO forum. Please don't think I was accusing everyone who plays D3 of being above-average inactive.

    Much more importantly, they need to balance the rifts in terms of density and progress value per enemy. It's just tragic that people even have to 'roll' rifts looking for certain ones if they want to be competitive.

    posted a message on So we must play seasons to gain more Stash space?

    Boo hoo.


    They have given a way to get stash tabs, it requires you to complete a task. It's too bad that it's a task you don't want to do.


    I want hellfire amulets but I don't like searching for keywardens, is that a sound argument that they should make keywardens always be standing right at the waypoint?


    Just play a seasonal character and do what you need to get the stash space, then stop playing season if you hate it so much. When the season ends, any xp and items gained will be given to your non-season people.

    posted a message on Will you play seasons now there will no longer be season-only items?

    I avoided playing seasons until season 4, but some friends got me to play it and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I don't play enough to be competitive on any leaderboards or anything but the season journey gave me a goals to accomplish where non-season play felt like a grind toward nothing in particular
