Site looks great overall. I'll echo many of the minor little criticisms others have made, and add one more:
I don't think the staff gem icons are distinctive enough. Staff members don't stand out enough compared to regular members anymore. Sometimes for various reasons it's nice to be able to catch a staff post when quickly skimming through a thread, and it's much harder now.
EDIT: Also annoyed that my health globe on my profile pic turns green whenever I am online, but oh well

Loot 2.0, yes, but are you sure about the new legendary items? The last I heard, the devs were still debating whether new legendary items (as opposed to reworked existing legendary items) would be part of the pre-expansion patch, or RoS itself. If the latter, they won't be in the patch.Quote from PietrakThe 2.0 Patch PTR will include:
- new legendary items and loot (Loot 2.0)

Well, it's a good thing I sold my giant stash of crafting mats before this blue post was made. They weren't exactly worth a fortune, but I bet their AH prices are crashing fast now!Posted in: News & Announcements

Especially because I don't ever remember blue posts or developer interviews where they actually denied that "in combat" exists. I remember many fans responding to any suggestions involving "in combat" with "This isn't WoW, there is no 'in-combat', go back to your pet battles." If you're going to accuse them of this over and over every chance you get, provide some proof?

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from BagstoneYeah, came up in the other thread.
I think the analogy to PvP is not correct.
Yes, it might get even further delayed, but two things should be considered:
1) As has been said in the bluepost, although the general mechanic of NT has been delayed, some of the encounters still are included in RoS.
2) PvP wasn't included because they need to get PvE right at first, and balancing that is already quite hard. Balancing the game around PvE and PvP at the same time is like open heart surgery. I'd rather them get one thing perfectly right than two things kinda "meh".
I personally think the expansion has already loads of interesting new content and this is not something that'll make me go "OH NOEZ, I'M NOT GONNA BUY ROS NOW". It would've been a nice addition, but it could've easily put me into choice paralysis (Nephalem Trials? Nephalem Rifts? Bounties? Story Mode? What the hell should I do now?)
I generally agree with all of this, and I'm not really all that bothered by it being delayed. It's a little annoying, but it is what it is. I just wasn't sure if it had come up anywhere else on the forums yet, that's all. I'm sure some people will see this as reason #847 that Blizzard sucks and RoS will be a waste of money, but honestly I don't know why those people still visit fansites.

My apologies if there is already another thread on this, but I didn't see one in a quick look just now. It looks like the Nephalem Trials that were announced back at Gamescom have been delayed indefinitely, and won't launch with RoS.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Not a big loss in my book, since it was pretty far down the list in terms of things I was/am excited about. Still, I hope they aren't delayed in the same sense that PvP is delayed.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from Cataleptparticularly given the fact that although they never actually announced PvP as a D3 feature (something far too many people forget), they sure as hell indicated that they were working on it,
Yes, they did. PvP is even listed on the game box, and was included in the ~1 minute trailer for the game that was all over the internet shortly before launch (with small text on the bottom stating it would be available soon after launch). PvP isn't some vague, empty hope, it is a promised game mode that still has not been delivered >1.5 years after launch. I'm actually surprised nobody has tried to sue Blizzard yet.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from Mob_DylanIt's very true that we spoil our own fun, no arguments there. I just believe people are concerned that it's almost been two years since release of D3 and they still have no clue as what to do with PVP (or maybe they do and they saving it for next X-Pac, which could be a MAJOR selling point). That and the fact that most of the data-mined info has been confirmed as true so far. In my opinion I believe they are making the right, albeit slow decision to fix the game as it stands now by giving us a better loot system, better PVE experience, and an awesome endgame. I do believe PVP will come eventually but I'm not holding my breath anymore. It will come when it comes.
There's no way they really have figured out PvP and are just saving it to use as a major selling point for a future expansion pack. It was advertised as part of the original game, albeit with the caveat that it wouldn't be included until after launch. If they tried to tie any future PvP game mode to the purchase of an expansion, there would be some pretty serious legal consequences to that. They would be wide open to lawsuits for false advertising. When and if they ever figure out something beyond the simple brawling that we currently have, it will have to be free for anybody who owns the original game.

So many exciting things in RoS that have me really looking forward to playing D3 again, and then this? Fuck.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
