While there is likely to be lore explaining it, to me it's just their continued philosophy of not trying to be D2. They didn't want to bring back all the same classes so they redesigned them or renamed them. The sorceress is now the Wizard, and the Necromancer has been redesigned to be the Witch Doctor. The Crusader is along those lines - it's a paladin but they are trying to make it different.Posted in: Crusader: The Church of Zakarum

It's probably real however Blizzard probably won't announce it until next month. The last few years they have not made release date announcements until exactly two months before the date. Jan 25th is a Saturday so it may come the 24th or not until the 27th, but I wouldn't expect official word until then.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Also, it hasn't been officially announced yet. Just like the ladder, or devils hand ;P. So since there has been no announcement the date could change. I'm not trying to be a party pooper here I just like to remind people to keep their expectations in check. I hate reading threads of people complaining about things that were never announced not being released.

They addressed this at Blizzcon and while they didn't say no they didn't say yes. Their answer was that pre order details have not been announced yet.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I'm sure despite what they do with pre orders there will be a random chance of being invited with a battle.net opt in.

Also I don't promise it will work. It's worth a shot though. I had a similar situation a few years ago and it worked.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Sorry to hear about this. No offense but this is an obvious scam from the start. Regardless, there is really only one thing you can do but it may only apply under certain circumstances.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Paypal can send money directly from your bank account. If this is the method you used, you could call your bank and claim fraud. Or if you transferred the money over recently you could also claim fraud. However it is important to note, DO NOT SAY YOU GOT SCAMMED. The same policy will apply. Just explain - Hey there was a transfer that I did not authorize I don't know what it was for, blah blah. Play super dumb.
However, if you had the money just laying there for a long time or had it transferred from someone else and the transaction was not through a bank you are out of luck.
Essentially, if this said money that you spent at any time sat in your bank account, you could claim that the transaction to paypal was fraud. Again, don't mention what you bought. Just claim the transfer was unauthorized.

Just quit the game man. Just don't play. I haven't seen you post anything positive on this site ever. Criticism is fine but if you don't enjoy playing don't play. There's plenty of active discussion among many forums analyzing the expansion (as in what we have seen so far). If you like it, play. If you don't like it, don't play.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Nobody is going to sit here and try to convince you why you should play.
If what is being presented isn't pleasing then don't continue to play, don't buy the expansion. It's really not that hard.

It's not announced yet but apparently there are plans. That's what they indicated at Blizzcon.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I'm in the same boat. I'm against the BOA philosophy however I'm not against binding. Bind on Equip is even a far better compromise. I'm also ok with binding after enchanting, transmog, socketing, whatever modification. Just let me move an item that I don't intend to use.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The two hour window is not a fair compromise.
I feel that if the significant backlash continues they will change it to equip/modifications. Everyone understands why Blizzard doesn't want trading (fear of third party sites, blah blah) however I don't really care if a third party economy exists. I know Blizzard does, but sometimes you have to cut your losses. Kind of like removing the RMAH eh?
Edit: Hell, why not set a worldwide binding timer? Items bind after 48 hours - so then that gives the player 48 items to move an item. That's even a better compromise, not perfect, but better.

I think the post brings up some legitimate concerns about the direction of Blizzards end game. While the poster makes the mistakes of saying in Vanilla you these 5 runs and in RoS you have two runs, bounties and rifts, the point he is trying to make is that the rifts and bounties replace traditional farming methods.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I know it's still very early and it's absolutely no where near panic time. However it is a concern we should raise. My impression of bounties/rifts before Blizzcon was that they would be found on your traditional farming routes as some type of surprise. However how the system works now is you just open your map and you are told exactly where they are. This does not promote any other type of open world exploration in adventure mode. In fact it's not even adventure mode it's bounty mode.
I'm not 100% sure about how the rifts work but my understanding is you get a key, and you open it up in town. Why in town? That is the most accessible thing I've ever heard of it. Put the obelisks that open the rifts in the open world so we have to find them and have a reason to explore.
I also feel that rifts and bounties should compliment current adventuring and not replace it. One criticism I have had of Blizzard in recent years is that it seems that they fail to compliment new features with existing features and just downright make the new features replacements.
I know it's still beta and that's why it's important that I post this. It is important for everyone to remember that this is an exclusive public invitation to friends and family beta and this is nowhere near complete. I don't expect RoS to launch any sooner because 3,000 people have access to the F/F beta. I still feel that it will be a summer launch. This conclusion is kind of irrelevant though, so I'm hoping people quote the above feedback and not my release date prediction.

Posted in: Off-TopicQuote from ChaosCodeWow the night is full of trolls. This game is totally play to win. How else would they make money? idiots.
Every TCG in the world is Pay to Win. That's the point. To get you to buy more packs. I fully expected Hearthstone to pay to win they announced it because they announced it was a TCG.
Anyone who plays Magic the Gathering longer than two weeks knows that buying packs is a waste of money and buying singles is the best way to get ahead. However it's sort of the opposite in this case as you always have to buy cards, Wizards of the Coast makes money off of the people who are against buying singles. The people who buy singles save money yet dominate friday night magic.
In the case of hearthstone, the person who doesn't buy packs may save money however will be way behind the curve. People who buy packs will provide blizzard their profit and will have better cards. You're not going to get Lord Jaraxxus card by completing your daily quest. Just like in MTG you won't get a planeswalker if you buy a fat pack.
Finally - nobody will trade a D3 beta key for Hearthstone. Everyone who signs up for Hearthstone gets into the beta.
