    posted a message on I'm happy for this D1 involvement REALLY HAPPY

    seems it's a temporary change. But hopefully it will give both us the gamers and blizzard a renewed perspective of whether some of the visual and AUDIO themes to modernize D3 was really the right thing to do.


    As a big Diablo fan, i'm glad they were creative enough to come up with this. This is what will bring me back to playing Diablo3, having a catacombs and this retro visual nostalgia :D


    Necromancer in 2017 is one of the up coming updates i'm greatly looking forward to :]

    the reason why he didn't pick up the set item is cause he is AFK. if he weren't of course he would pick.

    so that is hardly a case to say there is no profit for the ts in doing this.

    that said, i don't think the ts should be condemned for this. even a generous person like warren buffet said, it's up to the government to make taxation fairer by taxing the rich more than the less fortunate. so he works with the current system as is...... and there is nothing wrong with that or this X_X:

    of course if this was botting or some thirdparty app that would be in a different ballpark altogether :p


    if anyone wonders if this is a banable offense, just read the blue post on the issue
    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9873557614?page=1

    in summary their using the scare tactic to scare people away from doing this with their half a-ssed answer. so up to you whether you want to do it or not. personally i don't see them doing anything.

    people that come to mind that will be banned first are like kongor. cauz no way in hell he leveled legitly :p
    AFK is doing the same thing as a bot without using a third party program. If people are using this method is exploiting a game mechanic and could be grounds for account termination. Whether Blizzard does it is one thing.

    Also the Blue was talking about general terms and as a heads up not only for that issue but anything else that could arise. The Blizzard staff member was trying to state that if something seems to be too good to be true that it might be. If something feels like it is an exploit it likely is and if you have been using that method beyond a reasonable threshold or have been promoting that exploit (Streaming videos) that you could be in breach of the EULA and could lose your account. The only way to be safe is not by using methods that might be considered using an exploit.

    As for Streamers I do not know since I do not follow any of them.
    well thats a matter of opinion. no way to prove someone isn't just spamming the key, seeing as no scripts are used. but what matters is how blizzard decides on this matter.

    i once reported a gold spammer and blizz told me they can't do anything cause the account may have been hacked so they can't simply ban. so to me this just spells if they don't know for sure, they most likely won't take action :x

    and yes you are right it's a general post, but thats the best we have atm on their stance for such things. if anyone has something more conclusive, post here.

    i'm aware that cookiemanner was banned a few times, but for what exactly i do not know.


    regardless right or wrong, i'm sure most of us can agree that what we had initially expected would take months to get para 600-800, may just be within a weeks time to reach of just doing this. this was probably not intended. but now that quite a few people have been doing so called extreme pleveing, what is there to be done about it ?

    and people condemning videos like these, if not for them blizzard would not do anything. it was only after demonic chests were made visible that blizz hotfixed. and when asked why they didn't do it sooner, they said they didn't know. so if there were no videos posting in public, they would never fix this and people would still be doing this within a small group and none would know the wiser.

    so if people want the game to be fixed properly, don't condemn the whislteblowers or they will stop sharing in pub and blizz won't do squat.

    posted a message on Blizzard are infuriating!
    i can understand your frustration, but the one that i most agree on is the gem crafting which feels ridiculous.

    For example say i want to make radiant gem, i got to makes dozens of lower level ones before i can click to build a radiant. This takes dozens of clicks !!! its ridunculous >:{

    posted a message on Blizzard is Unaware of Diablo 3's Downfall...
    Quote from Bagstone

    MoogleStiltzkin... that's a well-written post. I agree with some (most?) of your points, at least to some extent. But I completely disagree with points 2, 3 and 8.

    2) Game engine: I really don't care about the game engine. The graphics are good enough, and that's it. No Blizzard game ever set a benchmark in graphics or physics on release, yet every single one of them was a hit. If I look back at all my favorite games I played in the past 20 years, none of them had high-end graphics. I want a proper atmosphere. Music, story, and some other things that are more subtle but difficult to point at are way more important than graphics. Lineage is a good example; LA1+LA2 graphics were always among the best in their genre, but player numbers were ridiculously low.

    3) Attitude: you apparently don't read blue posts. Blizzard has admitted many of their mistakes with regard to D3. Just think about Morhaine's apology. And all the blue posts. Just read the recent "ask the devs". Seriously, this is just wrong. Blizzard's attitude is the opposite of that of almost all other tech companies (hi @ the holy Steve Jobs telling customers "you're doing it wrong" even though they completely fucked up their phone design).

    7) What you write in point 7 indicates that you have no idea what Diablo is about (killing monsters and the endless item hunt). What you describe is a MMO. Diablo isn't an MMO and won't ever become one.

    hi thx for your reply.


    2) yes i do agree fun comes first. but for me individually, i also want better graphics and physics too. I'm using a ivy bridge 2012 pc rig, and want to get the most out of it :} although i can also understand your viewpoint and priorities. To each his own.

    3) a good example would be the time a while back before launch, when they kept raising hopes, only to then blame fans for over hyping themselves to only get disappointed when the game wasn't out when it was expected too. Despite blizzard themselves having also made comments to encourage this higher expectation. However this is old news. I haven't seen the recent stuff, so i'm not sure whether they've turned a new leaf.

    7) i probably didn't clarify enough. yes i know the difference between diablo arpg vs full blown wow mmorpg ;_; after all i did get diablo 1 way before wow ever came about. However all i'm asking for is a raid area pvp similar to that of guild wars 2, where more than 4 and 8 can play ...... and what is wrong thinking outside the box and IMPROVE diablo adding a new way of playing it in a different mode outside that of campaign once you've done completing inferno ..... :/ not asking for a big world like wow to explore :x so don't mistake it for that.

    posted a message on Blizzard is Unaware of Diablo 3's Downfall...
    well the way i see it, diablo 3 made improvements over all, but got worse in some areas, or there is mixed feelings about some changes.

    1. the theme feels different ..... what i mean is, take a look at diablo 1 butcher introduction, and compare that to diablo 3 butcher .... one feels like a mature adult theme, while the other feels like disney land in comparison ....

    the bright colors was also one of the other aspects of the game that made it feel different compared to d1 and d2. this is the part where most fans are not sure whether it was a good change or not. but some hardcore diablo fans are resorting to darkd2 shader to restore a more diablo 1/2 ish look.

    if you were not sure what to think about the colors, the pony level was a slap to the face. In d2 we had a cow level, which we found amusing and also profitable. but enter d3 pony level and you can't help but feel this is blizzard just rubbing it in our faces about the bright colors they added to d3 to the point of annoyance :/ this totally kills the diablo dark morbid theme for good. felt like jay wilson had his kids design the level judging by the kiddy drawings in that pony level x_x;

    other than graphics, the character commentaries like the mercs seem a bit jolly and silly at times. in diablo 1 and 2 it never felt like that. everything was more to do with serious morbid conversations tending to related to something about the story. whereas diablo 3 wanted to add less morbidity to the chars, and show that even such dark times, they can still act silly, and have fun still. this is what i meant by a contrast to earlier diablos ....

    i feel that d1/d2/d2 expa music is way better than d3 ..... but that is just my own opinion. Not sure what others think about it, but i felt the music got worse, and detracts from the previous theme/mood which was much suited for the diablo series. now i turn off d3 music, and play d1/d2 music with fubar as a solution ;x


    2. the game engine physics are awful. yes blizzard cited they aren't hell bent on making diablo 3 a high end game graphically/physics like Crysis, Half Life, Far Cry etc.... they even justified that characters need not be too detailed because you have a fix zoom view to begin with (which i can accept). however when players notice skeletons fly up in the sky at an odd angle in slow moo moon physics, it kinda looks crappy, especially when you compare it to the likes of Lineage 3 that feels much more polished when you look at how monsters die when you slam them with your weapons and spells ....

    3. attitude.... blizzard tends to justify some of the stuff they do without accepting they did anything wrong in the slightest, and it tends to translate as a mediocre attitude toward the game design. E.g. about them being satisfied with the game engine as is for example. time and time again we are reminded content isn't to be like world of warcraft where we can expect those kinds of updates. Although i can accept that, but i hope they won't make the expansion lame like d2 where you only have 2 new classes and only 1 new act .... i feel the expansion should have 4 acts at the very least .....

    4. the skill system has improved in the sense it offers much flexibility for players to experiment. and yet at the same time some of us miss a skill tree.

    5. magic find was a problem because it felt like you ended up having to keep 2 sets same like in d2, however with the introduction of paragorn, this has become less of an issue, as once you get paragorn lv 100, you needn't worry at all about your gear mf.

    6. shields theory crafting feels lacking when compared to diablo 2, where different shields tended to favor certain characteristics like, more block, more dps, more armor, but now everything is simplified down to just get storm shield with the right stats and you set. and even then there isn't much viable shield builds that can compete with the now popular dps builds barbarians use :x so now barbs either use dual wield 1 handers, or a 2hd skorn.

    7. once you've won the game at inferno and got most of the achievements, got all classes lv 60, and farmed decent enough items, what left is there ? Sure dueling, or should i say brawling is coming out today, but is that enough ? I want to have a bigger player base i can interact with similar to that of WOW, where you can battle in a bigger map with more players. Or should i say more like Guild Wars 2 ? we need some activity we can play as a group vs another group, and not merely a small arena for dueling only.

    8. when the game first came out, we found out legendaries were 99% of the time useless crap. It was simply amazing how blizzard was so blind as to the crappiness of the legendaries. Players wanted to use legendaries as usable items as they did in d2. But instead we got a shiny graphically nice item, which was inferior to yellow rares. So it was a godsend that the newer patch fixed the bad legendaries some what. People could now have a chance to roll legendaries that made sense to use. Some legendaries tend to rely more on a lucky roll of affixes you need, whereas some had base stats that tended to make any roll still satisfactory enough to wear regardless e.g. Immortal King's Eternal reign chest piece.

    However there is a third type of legendary that still needs to be fixed, such as Frost burn gauntlets among other things. These are legendaries people will never ever use because their affixes make no sense when compared to other popular stat affixes. Blizzard needs to re-do these high Item level legendaries to be something useful or it may as well just be a brimstone ....

    9. internet connectivity. personally i never complained about it, but when i keep constantly getting bug errors kicking me from games, and losing my 5 nephalem stacks, this is something i find intolerable. no i did not torrent and exhaust my internet bandwidth and lost connection. The game just tends to bug out on me and disconnect. This is getting way way too annoying for the game to be playable. Needs to be fixed soon hopefully in this new patch.

    10. 4 players max. yes ok campaign cooperative, i can see why 4 would be suited. but they need to make a different game mode (maybe something like team raids or something), that will allow much more players to participate.


    :/ over all i do think diablo 3 is an improvement, but with the stuff i highlighted, they can still improve on many things. And no these changes i am asking for isn't the same as wow updates, so plz blizzard, don't try and make an excuse that your product is fine as is, it isn't .... don't disappoint.


    so do i see blizzard's diablo series dying ? not quite, but i can see how this is leaving room for the competition like Lineage 3 from beating blizzard diablo games eventually if blizzard doesn't improve and change it's attitude.

    Even blizzard's Wow mmorpg is in danger when the trend now seems to be free to play such as guild wars 2. And now more recently Tera Online is becoming free to play (limited offer i believe ?). blizz needs to change it's business model to be competitive :x

    I've seen hypno in action on a a previous site, and i for one can say, the prospects for this new site is good because hypno is very motivated, has good ideas, and gets stuff done nuff said :}

    I for one think it's a good idea to cover the games that get so often overlooked maybe because of less marketing power compared to the bigger labels.

    Maybe also it will help those looking for the next new game to play to be able to find that from hpno's site :Thumbs Up:

    i agree with sparkimus.

    Also when you consider Athene can get 400k + dps on his DH, that totaly blows aways any real need to tank.
    http://athenelive.com/trophyroom


    Although i found your build unique and interesting, and i do think it could be useful for certain situations, maybe iskatu fight ?

    But for general gameplay, a DH would definitely want to aim for Athene's sort of dps build simply because lets respecing needed if at all.

    but using the system previously, if people didn't like this other guy pimping out on MF, then they are free to not play with him. There is a vote kick system for a reason.

    But now there is no room for discussion, it's punishment for people who want to stack MF, but having it taken away and redistributed to others just to be fair ....

    So yes you could use the same arguement to say, so go play with others who have high MF, problem solved.


    But how often will you find others who similarly stack MF in public games ? I'm very doubtful this would be a common occurrence ..... because not everyone will have the same ideas regarding MF.
