So because the PTR happens to share 2 quality-of-life features with the console version, you automatically assume they copy/pasted the console version's codebase? That entire argument is just one big hole. You can't just take code from one version of the game and slap it into another. The graphics code alone would take forever to rewrite, not to mention windowing, input, sound, UI, and mechanics. Also, the delay in Vault is lag. No matter how much money Blizz throws at their server architecture, there's still going to be bottlenecks when hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people are trying to log in and play at the same time.
TL;DR: Don't assume that some of the best programmers in the industry got lazy and copied code because a couple features got carried over between platforms.

What I don't understand is why some mods,that won't influence game mechanics such as D3 FXAA injector mod,or some other graphical mods are not allowed,and things like multiboxing are.The first one gives you ban,and the other is completely safe.
I wouldn't mind SOME mods to be allowed.
The reason it's not allowed is right in the name. That mod injects a shader file into the game's memory, which is also how many hacks work. If I remember correctly, Blizz said they weren't allowing it because they couldn't tell well enough what exactly was being injected, be it a hack or modded shader. This could be easily fixed by Blizz by giving us a shader selection in the Video options.
OT: I don't see why Blizz is so opposed to content mods after what Median XL did for Diablo 2. It added so much content that it turned into a completely new and refreshed game. The least they could have done was bring ideas from that mod over to D3.

From what I can tell your English is perfect, I didn't have any trouble reading it.
Did you get this up on BNet forums yet? You should, it'll get some attention from the Blues over there, and a lot more exposure.

Just finished a run. Nice, fast, and easy to follow, even though I died a couple times. I'd definitely recommend him.Posted in: US Servers Trading

The Mass Effect series uses this science in their universe, that's how they space travel. See? We were using it to create cool story lines before it was even discovered!
Okay, me being the giant ME fanboy I am, I gotta reply to this. ME doesn't use the Higgs Boson or the Higgs field anywhere in its story, it uses something called Element Zero (A substance that is made up completely from Neutrons, hence the atomic number 0 (this stuff is also theorized to exist, it's called neutronium -- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutronium)), which when a electric current is passed through it, it projects a field around itself, increasing or decreasing the mass of whatever's inside of it, based on the charge of the current. (I probably read way too far into that, but I see where you were coming from.)
With this discovery, we might actually be able to build a real antigravity machine, something that was supposed to be impossible to make. Flying cars might only be a few decades away.
Edit: If anyone wants to read more about how this works, most of it is right here

Honestly, with that much crit (how the hell did you get 52%?) I'd go with a Ranged build, like in this thread: http://www.diablofans.com/topic/51255-in-depth-guide-for-inferno-ranged-barbarian/Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
If you want to stay melee, I'd pick up some LoH, but weapons with it and over 1k DPS are stupid expensive. You'd also want more resistance, but that'll come just by filling up slots with T16 gear. If you don't think you're ready, go back and farm Act 2, it'll also let you get the feel of whatever spec you choose to play.
