I'd say most posters here like the game or at least have interest in it's future success. There are very blatant haters however they usually don't survive very long as it becomes obvious to normal posters here.
Sure we all disagree on a lot of stuff but usually it's a thoughtful discussion that ultimately shows that the diablofans community do care about the game. I actively play on and off but as long as I'm not super busy with school I try to stay active with these forums.
I'd say I still enjoy the game but I don't play it 6 hours a day, which I think is the reason why I still like it ;p.

I agree with what you say. However it's just not how Blizzard practices business these days. It's important people understand that the Vanilla D3 will not be balanced once RoS comes out. That's all I'm trying to say really. Should it be? Of course, nobody should be forced to buy the expansion. That's just how it is these days with gaming companies. I don't agree with it or support it, I just kind of see what is there and read the book blizzard is writing I guess.Quote from Maka
No, the PTR is there for people to test whatever's in the PTR, and give feedback. And what's in the PTR gives an indication of what will be in D3 classic.So what if people don't plan on buying the expansion? They still bought Diablo 3, still want to play it, and have the right to, at least, not have it become worse because they're not buying the expansion.The expansion is just that: an expansion. More content. It's not supposed to be an instrument to tell players "either get on board or get lost". That so many of you are willing to accept practices like this, hell, even support and defend them, is way beyond my comprehension.Quote from Serpenth
The PTR is not meant to satisfy your need for new content, so all of these "I quit because of what's on the PTR" people honestly in my opinion are idiots who didn't even intend to buy the expansion anyways.
Look at EA. They release they same damn sports game every year. Dramatic changes only come every 3-4 years. However they don't let you update the rosters/player ratings once the new one comes out. Is that fair, forcing people to buy a new one every year? No not really. Do they care? No not really. Do people buy the new version every year? Yes they do.

Based on the replies already I feel it's pointless for me to mention my thoughts, but I will anyways:Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Yes it's a lame "excuse" but you have to buy the expansion. The game is evolving and most if not all will be buying the expansion (who still play the game). There will be no balance for a Vanilla D3 experience because that's not the intent. The Reaper of Souls features have been on video and streams for about a month now. Everybody should know where they stand on the future of the game.
The PTR is not "RoS Beta lite". It is testing the core system changes that are being implemented likely 2 weeks to a month before the expansion. Based on how Blizzard has treated these types of patches with WoW - they likely don't care how awkward or broken the vanilla version will be for two weeks. The PTR is not meant to satisfy your need for new content, so all of these "I quit because of what's on the PTR" people honestly in my opinion are idiots who didn't even intend to buy the expansion anyways. Again, these features have been on display for a few weeks now. You know what you're getting.
Reaper of Souls is the new game. If you don't buy it you don't get most of the new features. Either way, I don't care. The point is the PTR is not "RoS beta lite" and vanilla D3 will no longer be the main focus of balance once everyone has moved on to RoS.

This is a scary reply. Swapping to a junk amulet on PTR should be no big deal. Blizzard isn't ripping you off, if you feel that this is a rip off you should have felt ripped off when they announced the level cap was going up in August.Quote from Westy357
Unless they do something about the Amulet situation I'm going to be uninstalling this garbage PTR version.
I have several level 60 crafted amulets that myself and my followers use, these have been now bumped up to lvl61 and are unusable in PTR.
I lose huge amounts of health, and offense by having to switch to spare junk amulets I have.
I crafted my amulet after many tries in D3 now only to be ripped off by Blizzard.
Blizzard has got to be one of the most infuriating companies to deal with I have ever seen.

I agree. I also feel like the whole interface needs to overhauled. The new main menu and in game menu are so empty, ugly, and unbalanced. The new inventory window is also somewhat painful to look at. I'm hoping the current UI's are temporary because look like they were thrown together with no thought process whatsoever. Which is fine for a beta, I just hope they know how ugly they all are.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

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
