    I wont buy RoS because i just cant seem to see where the competition is in the game, and where the goals are.

    With trading you had goals. You could be lucky finding a awesome item, thanks to the rng gods, or you could grind items to sell, so you eventually would be able to afford that upgrade. Today you can only pray to the rng gods for better loot. There is too much singleplayer over this game, with the new BoA system.

    Furthermore i have always disliked the decrease of the party rooster from 8 to 4 people, and the loss of focus on bosses to find loot. I fondly remember the baalruns, mephruns, diabloruns, and cowruns for xp. Somehow it just worked much better with 8 people, and the manual rooster creation, with gamenames and the possibility to add passwords

    I have a hard time seeing how this game will keep players interrested more than a month or two. There are no goals, no real competition, no trading anymore. Its basically a single player game where you grind the same areas over and over indefinently. As soon people stop getting upgrades somewhat often you will propably see the playerbase fade away.

    With the RMAH you would always be able to sell the good/decent gear you found because there was always people less geared than you.

    The fact that some flipped items and earned alot og money and gold doing so, really didnt affect people much. The items just ended up costing the amount it was worth. I think the people that was angry was mainly jealous because they didnt get to grap the cheap items themselves.

    I accept alot of people dont like trading, but for me that was a huge part of what made the Diablo games fun. You grinded for hours and hours to find a few items you could use, but alot of items you could sell, to buy better items for your character.

    When you play games you need goals to reach, and trading items was a big part of that for me. With trading gone im also done with the game. Im not angry or anything. The game just doesnt have any worthwhile goals for me anymore with the removal of trading. I dont see the point of the game anymore.

    I can easily kill the endboss on normal mode.. i dont get any more satisfaction of killing it on torment 5.

  • posted a message on So do people here actually like the game?
    Trolls have always been a part of blizzards various forums, so i guess you just have to learn to live with it. Personally i just ignore the troll posts. As for all the complaining i have to agree with those people, eventhough alot of them are just raging instead of complaining in a constructive way. I wont buy the expansion if they keep the BoA system. Trading is something i really enjoy, and have enjoyed in D2 and i simply dont understand why blizzard want to remove it. It really feels like most people enjoy trading, but didnt defend blizzard when a small group of loud people kept pushing for a BoA system. Sadly blizzard seems to have ended up listening to the small loud pro BoA minority. As many others i have had my fair share of fun with the game so i dont feel cheated.(the game was best in the beginning before everything was nerfed and dumbed down imo.) But i also think this game could have been soo much better if just they had developers with extensive and personal experience with D2, and knew what made the game soo successful for so many years. D3 RoS seems like a "use for a month and then throw away" game. I really cant see any lasting endgame in its current implementation.

    Quote from UberMey

    BoAs everywhere .. oh god ..

    how are we supposed to make gold without trade/sell? or we will not need gold?

    PS: This is not an ironic/offensive question, im just asking because I really need to know as craft/gems upgrades/enchants all need gold but I dont know how much
    looking at krips stream it doesnt seem like gold is that useful. He started from nothing and he already sitting on 50 million that he cant really use for something useful.

    RoS feels to revolve around selffound now. Its basically a single player game from the looks of it.

    Quote from Serpenth
    I stand by my theory that this game received such harsh criticism partly because half the people that bought it thought it was WoW with a different camera angle.
    With all due respect i think you are very wrong in this. Its more the opposite really.
    People wanted a upgraded D2, with manual trading, with runes with charms, with some kind of PvP, with releveling purposes. Instead you have a game that is very similar to WoW in its current implementation. You have the WoW gear obsoletion in RoS by moving from lvl 60 to lvl 70. Its just like a new tier in WoW. You have the instant respec at max level. you have the obsoletion of every item but legs.

    Mind you the game is not bad. There are many worse games out there. I just feel alot of people think the game wasn't what they expected considering the enormous popularity of D2 throughout more than a decade.(which is almost unheard of in the history of computer gaming)

    The big problem in teamgames is the 4 player cap. You wil always have leechers, or just passive players in your games. You had that in D2 also. But the difference was that even with 4 people afk there would still be 4 other people killing mobs and so on. In D2 you werent as vulnerable to AKF'ers/leechers as you are in D3. If just 2 people are afk, your killing speed is heavily limited compared to D2.

    Initially i was like "OMG i need to get into the beta! Cant wait!"

    After watching streams for several hours im more like:
    Same old same old.
    1: Get to lvl 70 in a few hours
    2: Use a few hours getting major upgrades replacing all your old items.
    3: Farm bounties and rift forever.
    4: After a very short while, skip yellow and blue crap items and only pick up legs.
    5: DE 95% of the legs you find and use mats to reroll stats on your current items.
    6: Keep doing this forever and ever.

    No PvP
    No trading
    No economy
    No playing with more than 4 people
    No ranking to work towards
    No laddders

    It just doesnt look like there are much replayability in the game outside the first few hours of gameplay at lvl 70.

    I have always been against hardcaps, and i will always be against it.(softcaps are fine) Its a shortcut you use instead of fixing the bad design. To get around this you could change the math behind the numbers, so that you need more crit to hit numbers closing to 60-70%.
