Quote from Silverrex7my take is that I feel the game with all the latest changes solves one problem but creates another. having BOA on all drops in RoS will indeed kill the game in due time. The dev team went from one extreme to another. it is these imbalances and one sided approach that makes this game unbearable. Diablo series has always been an item hunt game and to reduce or completely removed options dealing with said item is like removing your stash and while drops are great, you either wear it or trash it.
makes me want to just stick with Vanilla D3
what makes someone excited over an item? most people dont realize this but true value imo are seen in how how much people covet it, and without the ability to trade people will no longer care what you have. This reduces the desire for everyone to compete, chase, compare, what ever you want to call it. which is essential in keeping this franchise alive for years to come.
LET OUR PEOPLE TRADE!
I can't help but agree with this, with d3 being even more dependent on gear than it's successors, this very important.
My theory is this whole legendary BoA thing will only last a few months. By then, most players will have a good niche in the expansion and their self-found upgrades will start to slow down. What's left? Sure, there will be crafting.. But people are going to want to trade to fill that last piece of gear for a build idea. It might not always be a rare that they need either.
