    posted a message on Cow Level Permanent

    How swear that must of you would find fault with a new rope to hang yourselves with...


    The game is paid for. Be happy there's new content at all. I mean, if you really wanted to Blizzard milk you for the most, then they'd stop being anything till it was time for sell more expansion boxes. But, instead, you whine and complain for content that they're not making any new revenue for...


    Of course, many of you never would think of the possibility that the Cow Level event might not be aimed at the 'elite' that some of you feel you should represent; i.e. get over yourselves already.

    posted a message on New fun 2.1 exploits?
    Quote from WarmongerXD
    If it makes it in its not an exploit, it's just that Bliz appears to have jack shit for internal QA. Also hope no one posts any, anywhere. Once you do it'll be hotfixed pretty quick. Make them actually do work instead of just using google to find out wtf is wrong with the latest patch, and we (the players) want to enjoy it for a week or two.
    Knowingly using a bug to get around normal gameplay rules/standards is exploiting. You're just trying to justify cheating, imo. So you're saying that if they left a bug that let you get any legendary you wanted to drop whenever you wanted, that it wouldn't be an exploit, because it 'made it in'? I think not.

    posted a message on Am i the only one not excited by 2.1?
    I tend to play a particular game in spurts. I'll play D3 for a couple months, then decide to play something completely different. I haven't played any one game more than a month or two at a time since quitting WoW somewhere around March 2013. However, the good games, I always come back to again when I get bored with something else.

    'Quitting' WoW doesn't mean I don't treat it the same way as others. I go back for a month and see my friends every six months or so, and I'll probably make a couple level 100s when the new expansion comes out, but, I'm no longer playing WoW as my 'primary game', and really nothing holds that spot. At the moment, I play D3 a while, then get into SimCity a while, then into the civ-type games ($5.99 for SMACX that works at gog.com!) and so on. Instead of playing only one type, I follow my itches. Does this mean I'm not 'competitive' in being 'one of the best players'? Sure, but I couldn't care less. I'm here to have fun, not see my name on a leaderboard.

    So, my point is, I feel like it's not unusual to 'get bored with' a game after a while, then jump back in after a patch, or even just after some time away.

    posted a message on Achievements: why bother?
    Quote from sponkey21

    I don't see any additional content to unlock in diablo. It's not that kind of game. You put in time to get a better character. Achievements can aid in that endeavor. Since when did what has been done in previous games had to be a limitation on current or future games anyway. I don't care about the historical utilization of achievements. I get some people are completionists and just enjoy that kind of thing, but I think that an achievement that took so much effort or skill should also give you even something small like +5 vitality. I highly doubt I am the only one who has ever though of this. Oh yeah, and might I add *ta da* here is more end game content to add some fun goal oriented play time and variety of play and incentive to do things you might not normally do.
    Just because you don't see it doesn't mean others might see it differently. Different people think and do different things from you. If you don't care for achievements, then ignore them. Feels to me that you're looking for some consensus to validate your own opinion, as if you're not able to make decisions for yourself...

    posted a message on [Updated] Better Greater Rift Key Duping on PTR
    This is why we have PTRs...so we can catch stuff like this before it's live if possible. Won't catch them all, but some we can.

    Oh, and it's 'disappointed'...

    It's PTR. Give them feedback, see what they fix, and stop the Chicken Little.

    posted a message on Release date for 2.1?
    As usual with Blizzard, we'll know about the release of 2.1 when it starts downloading. Since they have yet to test seasons, I think it'll be a while. Might even be after WoD release.

    All this speculation is just time-wasting. I'm grabbing a few paragon levels and mainly waiting for 2.1, because I like the changes, and want to play in 2.1 when it comes. I have other games to play in the meantime. Nice thing about D3; you pay for it once (well, twice counting expansion) and then never again. And you still get patches for it, unlike some game companies.

    (This reveals my pet peeve somewhat when people demand 'new content' like an MMO gets. We're not paying every month for it, so, you shouldn't expect that.)

    posted a message on Is anyone else really frustrated?
    Quote from Vaestmannaeyjar
    Quote from XIIIFiVe

    There's plenty of build diversity. Just because there is an accepted standard build or two for each class for pushing Torment 6, it doesn't mean that there isn't build diversity.
    The problem is, blizzard is pushing everyone in only one playstyle: kill everything ASAP. A slow killing juggernaut tank that's near unkillable build ? Sorry, the new rifts are a timer race.
    There are other things to do. Yes, Greater Rifts are for speed builds. But that doesn't mean you can't play that tank in other parts of the game.

    Seriously, I don't get the "I must play only the ONE TRUE WAY or the absolute most efficient way and forget everything else!" If those ways aren't fun for you, play another way.

    I'm back to earning paragon points I get to keep, until they enable seasons on PTR.

    If you want to play T6 and/or Greater Rifts a lot, you'll need to min/max and probably play only one or two builds per class.

    If you want build diversity, back off the difficulty and have fun.

    You can't really do both at once. The math just doesn't make that possible.

    There's a lot of players who couldn't care less about T6, and are happy to just play at T1 or T2, and get access to all the torment-only legendaries. Only those who play everything as a competition really care about T6.

    I'm pretty happy with the game at the moment. Just remember that by this point in its history, D2 still had TONS of class changes coming. In fact, I'm not sure synergies were even in yet, just a few months after LOD release. Seems like a lot of you (not all) played D2 long after the balance changes were over, and don't remember the mess the game was in the beginning.

    Honestly, I think there's got to be some kind of language barrier going on here, because it's pretty obvious that the OP has it backwards. Oh well, I'm out.
    Yeah, might as well stop trying to teach the pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

    posted a message on Only One that wants trading?
    I'm much happier w/o the AH and the trading. Now we actually see usable drops, instead of having to buy them on the AH, and actual legendary and set drops more than once in a blue moon.

    posted a message on low level paragons joining t6 games!!!..
    I simply avoid PUGs. Too many bad memories from WoW. If I play in a group at all, it's with friends/clan only.

    posted a message on 2.1 Release date?
    I'd rather test it longer and have less stuff to fix on live, than release it like it is now just to make some segment of the playerbase happy.

    posted a message on Slighty concerned for the hc community in 2.1
    Anyone who's going to get all bent out of shape over losing a character while trying out a new feature...probably shouldn't play Hardcore.

    That's just part of the deal. Things happen, and characters die. I'm not criticizing anyone who goes softcore because of the risks Greater Rifts present. It's your game and your characters to play, but, on the other hand, don't necessarily project your own feelings onto others who play HC.
