• posted a message on 10 Things I Love About D3

    Thanks for the thread, Thorangol.


    My own list;


    1) The combat. Very innovative and perhaps the biggest success of the Jay Wilson era. JW catches a lot of flak for his failures, but the effort and thought that went into combat dynamics is apparent and the result superb.


    2) Audio and Visual; Terrific. The sound effects are an aspect that rarely gets mentioned, but if you play with 128 channels and have a decent sound system, the audio effects bleed through nicely. Graphically, smooth and appealing. Aside from Act 4 (which I found to be an eyesore), the tile-sets for most of the game is IMO the best looking ARPG I've ever seen.


    3) I never thought I'd say this, but the itemization has gotten in a pretty good place. Some of the lone (non-set) Legs are really inspired and remind us of how far items have come since launch nearly 3 years ago.


    4) Blizzard's continued support and passion to develop Diablo 3 well beyond it's release date. Though I must say, if they don't release 1 more xpac, I would consider it a crime.


    The game overall needs one more big push from an xpac to get it where it should be, but there are many things to love about D3.

    Makes sense. Nothing new to release about D3. Right now it seems like the only people interested in D3 news are the ones already playing it so I don't see a need for it to be at gamescon. If I did see them there I would be excited though, would mean something big would be inbound beyond content patches. Maybe next year.




    Something would be nice. Like, a talk, a fan chat, anything. Diablo III is slowly becoming Blizzard's unwanted child .___.


    Why would you say that? That's an interesting way of saying D3 has been out for 3 years, not to mention it just received a decent patch. Any news on D3 will come at Blizzcon, which I hope includes one more xpac.

    There you go being negative again... :D


    Wow, that was weird, huh? I was totally negative while pleading for positivity in a negative thread. I should go back to the drawing board and rethink my above post.


    On topic; If I were to nail down one thing, it's this trend we're seeing patch to patch. Where they give us new builds via revamped sets, and we're glad as shit to have this new build, but then we realize the old build is now limp compared to the new, so we always end up feeling like we've taken 1 step forward and 1 step back.


    They did well with the monk, as that class now has several viable builds, but it still has one (Raiment 6) that stomps the rest out. I feel they're worrying so much about making every class competitive, they're forgetting to make one classes builds able to compete with each other.

    Why don't people ever list the top ten things they love about Diablo?

    Wow.






    "Wow" what?


    It's too bad we couldn't have had an honest, straightforward and mature conversation about all this. I tried, as is reflected by my posts here. I was respectful, and even complimented and defended MC a few times while stating my points and asking straight questions.


    There are going to be different opinions, but there is no reason for the vitriolic posts by many here.




    mate, you are too argumentative for your own good. All that tension will ruin your health. On the plus side you can really take a break of diablofans and go jogging or something..

    you are always looking for an honest straightforward and mature conversation, I can't understand it, there are plenty of stuff you can do in your day which are more entertaining than being obsessed about arguments. Everything is good in moderation, if you start looking for arguments everywhere.

    Guy : " The sky is blue ! "
    Ruksak: " No, the sky isn't blue. That is how you perceive it ! blablablablabla. do you understand, guy?

    Seriously, I can totaly see this happening in real life.


    I'm one of the few here NOT calling names and attacking people. I go weeks without posting here, but I found this topic intriguing. Forgive me for actually talking like a civil human being.


    Again, you're making it personal. Funny how this thread is about me and not Mannercookie.


    You guys enjoy the rest of this thread's life. MC already checked out, and I'll do the same. Forgive me for engaging MC on the topic of his own goddamn thread. It must be because I'm a loser that has nothing better to do in life.

    Wow. Let it go people (cough, cough-rucksak cough). It's a fucking video game. Who gives a damn if he did or didn't answer your question. You people act like he raped somebody or something.






    I did let it go. Until somebody (*cough cough Bagstone) suggested that I continued to ask after the question was answered, and that was not true.


    I was genuinely curious how MC would answer the simple question. why a person in his position would cheat and risk his account.


    I did NOT blast MC in this thread, other than to call him a snake for answering a question by editing it into a post he made 15 hours previously, a post that wasn't there when I read it.




    Why would he cheat? To be competitive versus other cheaters, its a multiplayer game after all. Do you need more explanation or you are just dumb so you cannot understand? Most of top D3 people exploited it, so to still be competitive he did it himself. Now stop being a douchebag and let it go.


    So I have to let it go but you don't? Real cool, brochacho. Calling me a "douchebag" and "dumb" isn't making your case.


    This Lance Armstrong excuse doesn't fly. It never has, and it never will. If he was genuinely concerned about other players using this exploit to supplant him on the leaderboards, he could've reported it and watched his competitors fall.


    Presuming Blizzard wouldn't act was incorrect, was it not? The fact remains; What people thought and what actually happened are two very different things. As it turned out, had he reported this exploit and not cheated, his account wouldn't have been banned and his competitors would've been rolled back underneath him. Therefor; He made the wrong choice and he should own it.


    This reasoning that blizzard displayed inaction in the past is weak at best. Even as a non-season player, a non-streamer, a non-pro gamer, I knew this exploit would see repercussion, and it did.


    So who's the dummy now?


    BTW: Those of you demanding that I leave the thread because I have a different opinion on the matter, all while you guys continue to post, is fucking pathetic and childish. I have as much right to post my opinion as anyone else here. Do so without calling me names and insulting me, please.

    I can totally, 100% understand why certain players feel why they wanted to cheat (and that should answer ruksak's question, although it was answered already before you asked 5 times again). Why did he cheat? BECAUSE EVERYBODY CHEATED.


    That's bullshit, Bags. He didn't answer me, he went back like the snake he is and edited in his answer to a post I read the night before. Why would you back him up on that? He avoided my direct and calmly posed question, and then answered it retroactively in a post he made 15 (FIFTEEN) hours earlier. You get that bit, right?



    PS: I didn't cheat, you didn't cheat, so where are you getting this "everybody cheated" from? Everybody did NOT cheat. Cheaters cheated and honest players did not.


    @MannerCookie: Props to the honest words in your OP. And I hope you come back eventually - your contribution to the community for barbs and crusaders was incredible, especially on 2.2 PTR you were like a one-man QA army.

    Christ......if you had mentioned an alien or a spaceship, I'd consider this to be some great science fiction you just wrote. Mannercookie drew attention to exploits and in-game issues with the same subtlety that Timothy McVeigh drew attention to Federal Law Enforcement overreach.....he blew shit up with all the clumsy tactic of a vandal.


    No, I would not blame the police if I get a speeding ticket (in fact I got a ticket and did not blame them). So didn't MannerCookie, he said the the ban was justified and he doesn't plea to get unbanned, he only elaborates on why the ban came somewhat "random" and unexpected. I really feel you did either not read or not understand his point of view.


    If you want to use traffic as an analogy; I see people break traffic laws EVERY TIME I drive, every time. That doesn't make me think I can speed too and get away with it. 43 years old, and I have never had a moving violation, not one. Because I don't cheat, I follow the rules. Because I follow the rules, I don't get tickets.


    For two days I told people they were going to get busted for taking part in this exploit. ....and they did. I got blasted at Bnet for warning players to stay away from this, many responded with mockery about how blizzard doesn't care. I told them that just because Blizzard displayed inaction in the past, it doesn't mean they won't do it now, or in the future.


    This was a destructive exploit to the season construct, and I knew it.....and I don't even play seasons.


    The cheaters cheated and the honest players did not, that is the only descriptor available for this event.

    I did not know about this exploit until the night before i streamed it in the morning, not sure where you guys are getting that I kept this exploit a secret until then .....


    I am done here guys, take care






    That doesn't answer two questions people have;

    1) Why did you use the cheat?


    2) Why didn't you report it when you did find out about it?


    The two questions are inexorably tied together, but worth answering. After our first encounter here over 2 years ago, I did start to gain a bit of respect for you, as far as being a damn good gamer. I've seen some of your Youtube vids (trying tier 70 in PTR etc), and I rethought my stance on you. You don't need to cheat to get ahead, you're a damn solid D3 player.


    But this thread, it's weak. It effectively says "I cheated because this game sucks". This is a Diablo fansite where many of the members love the game, and you took a big 'ol cookie shit all over the people who like it, as if we're just a bunch of casual assholes.


    I wanted to hear your own words on why you cheated, and frankly, I'm quite disappointed that you avoid the 10-ton elephant in the room. Why did you cheat?




    ffs do you have nothing better to do than sit here all day long and bump my thread?


    read the 3rd post of thsi thread I already answered you usual troll questions


    2 years here and I have 0 respect for you and your continuous toxic spam across the dfans forums.


    edit: bagstone or zero, can some1 plz lock ruksak from repeatedly bumping the thread with the same questions over and over again.


    Actually, that is your second post in this thread, but more importantly, you edited in your explanation well after I had first read it.


    That is NOT what was originally in that post.


    And no, I have nothing particularly better to do today. My daughter just went home, it's fucking raining and shitty out here in Indy, and I'm watching TV while browsing, if you must know.


    Your answer to my question; Why cheat?; "Because everyone else was doing it" [paraphrasing].


    Also; "A part of it was for the pure entertainment of making shitload of shards drop I will not lie"


    All that is fine, and I think there aren't very many people who could claim to be so far above doing the same thing. Some made the choice to use the cheat, others did not.


    This part however; ".... the other part is to bring it to the open and force blizz's hand".


    Well that's kinda weak, if you ask me. As I said earlier, there were many other, better ways of accomplishing that. This isn't the kind of issue that would've taken an uproar from the players to get Blizz to fix it. If they knew, they would've hotfixed ASAP.



    edit: bagstone or zero, can some1 plz lock ruksak from repeatedly bumping the thread with the same questions over and over again.

    Don't make public threads? You answered my question by going back and adding it to a post I read last night via edit. You think me to be frickin' stupid or something?


    I haven't called you a name, an insult. I've even defended you to some extent, but just like our conversation 2 years ago, you don't react well to debate. Thank you for answering my questions, that is all I wanted.
