It's far more complicated than that.
I appreciate that there are 4 different game modes (HC NS and HC Seasonal included), offering players numerous choices etc etc. .... but I did not expect that there would be such a schism between season and non season as there is now. The disparity in player populations is dramatically worse than I thought it would be.
I don't like the idea of seasons, but I supported them being implemented because I knew many others would love it, and that would be good for the player-base overall. I play HC exclusively now and have for a very long time, but I got talked into jumping into season 4 because so many of my clan mates and friends were going hc season.
It's been a disaster. As soon as s4 hit, I picked up some extra work and I barely had enough time to play the first week to get 100 para, and then I started working even more.
Because I haven't had time to play I made a few mistakes and lost two characters back to back (I don't die much usually). So now everyone is ahead of me by hundreds of para and that combined with their impressive gear causes them to be far more powerful than I am, causing frustration when trying to party up and set the game difficulty.
There's no clear end to the hours I'm working, so I said 'fuck it' and went back to my fully loaded 650+ paragon non-season monks. Maybe a future season will work out when I get back to an easier schedule, but what makes non-season so great for some people is that we can work heavy hours and still enjoy a well-paragon'd, stoutly geared full account.
The issue? My choices of HC players to party with went down from about 40 to only 5. ...and don't even mention joining a public HC non season game. You will rarely ever find one .... not even one game. So yeah.......this issue is worse than I thought it would be. The disparity is too wide.
The silly part is; They would literally have to start introducing non season-only items at the start of each "era" to correct this issue. Not saying I support that idea, but that's the only thing I see fixing the disparity, because the chasm is a mile wide as of now.

I don't see this going anywhere good.

Hi Blizzard, what about shutdown the whole game for a day or two, and actually fix and remove all the lag problems, i mean com on, is that really so hard to solve this kind of problem?. " Egypt build their pyramids" and "Blizzard can't solve a lag issue" ?
if you go out and ask like 100 people that plays this game, 95 of them would say they having problems with the lag.
calling this thread negative, i think most of people would call this thread very very posetive, its time to take some responsebility and fix the product that players have payed for, we have invested money in this game, and we want it to work smooth.
/have a nice day
I never had lag in D3 so I dont know what your talking about.
Seriously never. Its ur shitty pc or crap internet.
There's a fairly common and well known number of issues regarding the game creating such complex calculations that the servers cannot keep up. It's a technical issue regarding matters on Blizzard's end. You typically only encounter this in full groups with specific character classes using specific skills, or even pylons on high grifts.
If you haven't encountered this yourself, it's most likely because you aren't playing high grifts in groups. When you hear a large number of people saying they're having the same issue, logic wants us to understand that there may be an actual problem at play.
As you see in the video, the Shield Pylon created a situation where the servers wanted to melt due to the sudden jump in calculations being made regarding the pylon.
All that being said, comparing the erection of a pile of rocks to the enormous technical logistics at play here is a bit absurd, OP.Egypt build their pyramids" and "Blizzard can't solve a lag issue" ?

I'd like to see them up the amount that the Odious Collector drops, something far more substantial. Another Goblin just for DB's seems unnecessary. Rather, just adjusting the numbers with the goblin that already drops them would be sufficient.

Any ban-wave is a good ban-wave imo

Drahque has long been one of the leading HC players. I may be wrong, but I believe he stepped away from it due to the profound lag issues we've seen since 2.3 went live.
