    I don't care for them myself. There's nothing special about things that everybody else either has or is about to have. Just strikes me as fluff. That being said, if it keeps people interested and others enjoy it, it must be a good thing.

    Looking back, I had a freakin' blast playing hardcore self-found throughout D3V. HC was dangerous as fuck-all back then, and self-found allowed a sense of adventure to the progression. I would certainly play it again if given the chance, but not necessarily choosing it over RoS.

    posted a message on How we could put a Stop to Botters from Gaining the Advantage on Legit players

    I recoil at the idea of altering a game program for the purpose of leveling the playing field between casual players, chronic players, and cheating players. Life isn't fair, and neither is gaming. Leave it alone....... for those of us who aren't competing with ghosts.



    The ONLY thing that should be done about botting is increased enforcement and enhanced detection techniques.

    posted a message on End game sucks!

    Every game gets old, every game reaches an end to each individual, in time. If you play too much, the game gets old.


    I remember getting burned out numerous times during my many years of playing Diablo 2. I'd quit. I'd take a break. I'd play again and, inevitably, the thoughts of 'what to do now' always came back until I finally hung it up for good.


    All there was to do is trade items back and forth, do some MF runs, gain some XP doing Baal runs. Maybe some PvP in between runs. After awhile, the shine wears off and so begins the rigor of realizing that all you're doing is repeating the same actions over and over again just to better prepare yourself to repeat the same actions over and over again.


    Have fun, play your own way. Stop chasing cheaters and unemployed slackers. Stop predicating your Diablo 3 experience entirely upon your success on a dubious leaderboard.


    4 years and I'm still having fun. I still come home and often sit my ass down, smoke a bowl and play Diablo 3 for a few (several) hours. 4 years now, and I gotta say, the game is more fun for me now than it ever was. I don't play as much as I used to, but when I do play, I have more fun nowadays than back when the game was lousy with underwhelming itemization and lackluster build pliability.

    posted a message on D3 dead? or just the season?

    Seasons, and the ever increasing onus Blizzard has placed upon incentivizing seasonal play, has changed what D3 is to me. I do not like Seasons. I do not want to play seasons. I never will play seasons, no mater how much they incentivize it. I'm done trying to compete in this game, been done for a long time.


    Despite helping to run a reasonably active clan for the last year, despite all the contacts I make here on these forums.... ........ I rarely play the game with another human being anymore. This online game that is entirely driven toward group play is nothing more to me anymore but a solo ARPG that I enjoy very much. This game has four modes; Standard Non-Season, Hardcore Non-Season, Standard Season, and Hardcore Season. As it happens, I far prefer the most unpopular, ghost town of a mode, HC NS.


    The game is great for me, I love it (speaking toward the actual play of the game specifically). It continues to grow in depth and content, and after four years and thousands of hours, I still enjoy kicking back after a long day of work, smoking a bowl or two and playing D3 for a few hours. It used to be so much more for me than that, but their workaround for PvP was leaderboards, and this was a serious mistake on their part IMO.


    In short; I've grown quite "casual" due to the insistence by the developers to drive the game toward speed...fast fast fast, timed runs, and seasonal restarts.


    Love the game, hate the 'suggested' play-style bullshit.

    posted a message on Will ever be PvP in this game ?
    Quote from rotfeastgo-next

    I'm a longtime Diablo player. I dedicated ALOT of time playing Diablo 2 in it's prime. What made PvP special in D2 was it being a "game within the game". The success of PvP in D2 was more or less created and established by the players. The creators just added the option to go "Hostile" against a player who was in the same game as you. Sure, there were aspects thought out by the designers as to what should happen when a player is fighting another player, but I doubt they thought it would become it's own "thing" within the game itself.


    It was really more than "Oh, lets just play diablo 2 PvP, cause that's what this game is". It was about being in a game, discussing strategies, bullshitting, talking trash, and occasionally saying "G", and running out of town into the Moors to get your fight on. It was a break from leveling and doing MF runs, with no real guidelines as to what should or shouldn't happen. The players established there own guidelines and, for the most part, they stuck.


    As far as Diablo 3 goes, I am thoroughly enjoying the game because I feel like Blizzard has effectively combined elements of old and new - It feels fresh, but there are plenty of things that simply remind me of the old diablo games... and I like that feeling.


    BUT...


    The whole idea of what Blizzard perceives to be PvP as a part of Diablo, in this game, just feels wrong to me. I mean... It's there.... "Brawling". But again, it just doesn't feel right.


    I think they should have just mimicked what they did for D2 - add a "hostile" option, and let players freely fight one another outside of town. And, sure add some PvP damage nerfs or whatever to make it more enjoyable, but I don't think it really needs to go beyond that. Let the players make something out of it.


    The bottom line for me is gonna sound cliché, but seriously.... If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if you want to make it better, than try to make it better. BUT, if something doesn't work, than that shit just don't work.


    If Blizzard really wants PvP to be a "thing" in Diablo 3, I think they need to take the simplified approach and go back to what works. Start there, and then try to make it better.


    Have fun, and Cheers!

    You reflect my thoughts almost exactly.

    I have always pointed toward the genius of D2 PvP being it's simplicity and lack of form or bounds. I read a long ago Blue post over at Bnet once years ago that stated "The geography of Sanctuary is not conducive to PvP gameplay."

    In saying so, we were given an admission that they have no clue what made D2 PvP so fun for so many. Sadly, if PvP is ever offered in D3, it will probably be tightly constructed, constrictive, arena style team combat.

    There was a blue post that this season will have no community event at all.


    Found it:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/20420494255#8



    OK.... so not only are they obscenely incentivizing seasonal play, they're now using it as a reason to pluck a fun community event out because of the existence of seasons?

    What happened to Blizzards own term " era"?

    I don't like playing ladder/seasons. It seems absolutely pointless to me. I see why some like it, but it repels me outright. I DO NOT want to EVER play season, and dammit.... I'm certainly not alone.

    It's been a long time since Blizzard disappointed me with Diablo 3, but this incentivization of seasonal play has just gone way too far. Now we can't freakin' have buffs because of this? The boards are nothing but a representation of who has a job or not and, most importantly, who's willing to cheat.

    THAT'S IT. There's your leaderboard. In the face of this comedic failure of integrity, how in the hell can Blizzard continue to push seasonal play as if it's integrity is preservable by avoiding events??

    Most likely you had compiled a litany of infraction points over time, and you just pointed-out.




    That being said, I actually read your thread earlier this week. I read and read, waiting for the overt sarcasm, but there was none. It seemed like a genuine praising of Mr Wilson. There was nothing I read in your OP which could've triggered a perma-ban.



    That being said, I have no idea what you said in response to others after the OP. I would sincerely hope they didn't infract you for your OP. If they did, it's a bit of an overreaction. To the best of my knowledge, there is no "auto-ban" due to the number of reports a post/thread receives. If that was the case, most people would get banned eventually.



    Bear in mind, and I hate to be "that guy".... but Bnet forums seem to be typically moderated by a gaggle of disconnected interns who arbitrarily pipe out canned responses to appeals that contain all the emotion and personal touch of a disconnected tin can robot. i.e. They don't even take the time to actually read an appeal nor type out their own words. They effectively click an automated response such as "We are sorry, but we cannot reinstate your posting ability at this time" and then provide you with a link to their code of conduct etc etc.



    It's a vitriolic forum, and you should consider yourself lucky to be rid of that place.


    Please feel free to jump in and join us here in Diablo 3 discussions. Regretfully, I'll have to close this thread because it's not Diablo 3 related, nor will it foster any sort of constructive discussion. Good luck, and we hope you stick around.

    Is there a cap on clans? I play normally only on seasons and I'm stopping when I finish the journey but then when I go back I would like not to ask for an invite due the 7 day kick lol.

    There will be no 7 day kick. I was constantly pressured to remove people after what I consider to be a short period of inactivity, and I will no longer support such a thing. It only results in the clan falling apart. This is a game of leisure, not a full time job, so people should be expected to go inactive from time to time. Extreme absenteeism will be addressed, but members shouldn't feel obligated as such.

    All I ask is that people leave a note in the clan roster if they're going to be away for an extended period of time.

    posted a message on Greater Rift Guardians need to be redesigned or removed

    How many times do you want us to repeat ourselves? Let me make it clear:


    Playing on a WD soloing 70+, any RG can easily one shot you, even with defensive buffs on. If you use pets as your DPS (Carn, or garg), pets get killed easily.


    It's happened to me on DH, and monk. Others can speak for w.e class they play.


    I'm not going to name every single RG or what attacks they use. If you play the game you'll already know. Instead of asking the same questions over and over again, have some thoughtful input.



    This isn't Bnet. Please frame your posts in a more constructive, less contentious manner.... please. Continuing to snap at myself or other members will not be tolerated here.
    I'm not trying to argue with you. I'm trying to understand you.

    When you make comments like .....

    (I play 75+ solos, not that low shit.)


    .....I now begin to wonder if you understand what an exponential curve is. Greater Rifts, as well as their associated Guardians, have an exponentially escalating difficulty. Eventually you'll fall fast as you forsake defense in order to stack DPS in order to fell the RG in time.


    I realize you likely already know this, but curiously you're omitting these facts. I'm not aware of any change that has made RG damage "stronger". It's the same curve as before, only now you're going higher than before and experiencing more damage than before. The damage the RG's are dealing at 75+ seems to be surprising you. The only thing that has changed is that you're in a higher difficulty bracket now, and it appears you need to make some adjustments.


    Since you're unwilling to delve into specifics, nobody here can offer you any specific help.


    The (title) subject of this thread is itself too broad. As we all know, some RG's are easier than others. Some match up well with certain classes/builds, while others do not.


    Can you at least articulate what RG/attack is most troubling to you so we have a starting point?

    I'm having the same problem with my witch doctor getting 1 shotted, even with all defensive buffs (Jade Harvest so 10 SH stacks, Bracer, horrify, and in my case uthkapian serpant.) Its fucking ridiculous, I haven't even reached gr60 and almost all my gear is ancient.




    "1-shotted" by who/what?

    Can we please (everyone) have more specifics if we want to suss out any actually dysfunctions with RG's.

    I will say; If you're getting 1-shotted by RG's under 60, you're doing something wrong. I was tickling 60 on HC last season with mid-grade gearing. Let's narrow the conversation into specifics and see what the real issue is.


    We're talking about this season, not last season. It seems RG damaged has been increased in 2.4. Any RG can one shot WD with defensive buffs going. When you're doing 70-75+, pets can get one shot depending on the RG.

    Have our characters/gear choices not gotten stronger in 2.4? I would say yes. So in your opinion; Is there a disparity in the growth of strength between RG's and our characters? Are you only feeling this disparity on WD's? ((I haven't played WD in a few years))

    PS; There has to be a wall at some point. You cannot expect to just infinitely climb GR tiers without slamming against a wall. You're going to eventually get stuck and have to get yourself unfucked to advance. This insane, exponentially growing difficulty dynamic they have at play in GR's is EXACTLY why I play HC only.
    I'd like to hear more specifics about what is unfair about specific RG's, their attacks and what attacks are "unfair" etc..

    Quote from boz0go-next

    Or just get yourself powerleveled in season? Maybe seize the opportunity to try a different class?


    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.

    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.


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHdsvNny2ls&feature=youtu.be


    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.

    Come back when you do it on HC :doh:



    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.

    As somebody who enjoyed a Crushing Blow Smiter in Diablo II I badly miss the old version of the Furnace anyway.

    Did D2 have a Furnace? Not recalling it, but it has been many many years since I played.

    Yep. Totally separate issue than what the OP is having. There's a big difference between FPS (framerate drops) and connection latency. The OP is having issues related to his ISP.

    I had to stop playing HC for several months because my ISP (Comcast) was having an issue in my area. I'd contact your ISP, MrJCB, and see if they have any answers for you. If you're not having problems with other games or internet connections (load times), it's gonna be something in the connection between your ISP and Blizzard, but not something on Blizzard's end.

    I don't understand why Furnace has the elite dmg as legendary affix while Sunkeeper just has it normally :/

    Why is that bad? If they add a leg affix to Sunkeeper (and kept the elite damage), we'd have something interesting going on with it.

    Akkahn should look toward an increase in FoH and Heaven's Fury, while Inna's should most certainly look to revive Sweeping Winds for the Monk.


    What exactly those adjustments should look like is something I'm not going to get detailed about, but retaining the principle functionality (as they currently stand) of these sets is important, they just need to add some raw damage multiplier for disused skills such as the ones mentioned above in my post.

    Only issues I've had are with WD's and that massive sever shut off the other day. I have thousands of hours on HC since launch and have only lost 2 characters to DC/Lag. It will happen for most eventually, but with today's easy leveling, the Gem of Ease etc.... HC rebooting is no big deal. As long as you get a chance to store up some back up gear, the only real bitch is losing an Ancient weapon and re-leveling those leg gems.

    In the future, when someone points out a glaring contradiction in your post, you can use the 'edit' feature on your posts to correct it. It would help far more than sending a mixed message. Thank you.

    posted a message on Strongarm Bracers

    Strongarms do Stack, At lease to my previous knowledge. I will try to explain it has simple as I know it.


    If one person is using Strongarms and uses a knockback ability, everyone in the group gets the one Strongarm debuff on thos enemies.


    If two-four players are WEARING Strongarms, The Debuff can stack multiple times in damage. But Each person WEARING the Strongarms has to individually do a knockback ability on the enemies for it to stack multiple times.


    Hope this helps guys. My information could be wrong, but I am pretty positive this is how the Strongarms debuff works in a group.

    ^^This is exactly how I was thinking they worked. This is why we ask for as many members to chime in on matters like this, so we can get to the truth eventually. Would still like some verification, but I cannot dig it up.

    OK well let me simplyfy this for some people . having a party member using strongarms will proc the effect for the knock back damage increase for everyone in the group. so you dont have to wear them yourself . the effect does not stack. sorry for the confusing start


    Your post didn't need to be "simplified". It needed to make sense. You said "sure does" and then went on to explain that it doesn't . Would like some other input on this, actually, maybe some verification via citation.

    posted a message on Is the game getting out of hand a little too quickly
    Quote from Thornagolgo-next

    I don't know if this is because this is the first seasons that I have actually committed to, but I can't friggin stand that I can't push past T4 because nothing drops for me. Personally, I would like to feel more powerful at some point and that is just not happening. I know we have a while before the season is over, but the lack of upgrades and feeling powerful is disengaging compared to my non-season characters that are pretty well geared and can help me gain power faster. Honestly, I feel like I have wasted playing time by focusing on my new monk in season 4.

    A testament to the potential rigors of RnG. I've been super busy and cannot seem to get much time, but only at para 120-ish I was cruising t6 solo. Still no full set though.

    Not to sound snarky, but this is Diablo. It's supposed to get out of hand with ridiculous power. One of my pet peeves is hearing people constantly pine for more balance just due to the presence of leaderboards, but Diablo has never been about balance. Rather, it has always been grossly strong items an obscene, vulgar display of power.

    posted a message on Did The Cube Finish Destroying Diablo 3?
    Quote from Romonagago-next

    As to the comment, about build diversity, Yes the cube did make for many more interesting builds outside the developer provided ones. However, in the end it is all about the item hunt. Make the hunt to easy and the game looses my attention

    I'll break it down as follows; It is now easier to create the build you want. It is still quite difficult to take that build into the upper echelon through finding well rolled items.

    BTW: You seemed to get upset that some people (myself included) got the impression you don't like Diablo 3. Have you actually read the title of your own thread?

    posted a message on Did The Cube Finish Destroying Diablo 3?
    Quote from Romonagago-next



    So let me be clear, the state of the game is fantastic now that drops are not centered around the AH, I love playing and for the past 2 months have been having a blast. However, I can see this getting very old and stale, for me finding the upgrades was the excitement and the game.

    Being clear is always best. You were quite unclear.
    I do wish people would learn to read and not jump to conclusions. Not anywhere did I say I did not like the game, to be honest I love many of the changes that have been made.
    You made a comment that suggested the current state of the game is angled toward "casuals". A suggestion that could be received as an insult. It is good that your clarified your position.
    Diablo has been in the past an item hunt game, yes I can not use the cube, yes I can not use Kalda. So is Diablo no longer a item hunt?
    Of course it's still an item hunt. A Lion's Claw is just a Lion's Claw until you grind out an ancient version with beautiful rolls. There are many aspects which still present hardened item grinders like myself with a focus. To be clear myself; I have always advocated for extreme rarity with certain items, I want those White Whales.
    I have been pleasantly surprised by how rare some items still can be, and rarer still..... great rolls in Ancient form.

    posted a message on Did The Cube Finish Destroying Diablo 3?

    There's a lot more to this game than simply dropping legendary items. Getting these items is only part of the process. How you build, how you mix and match, how you cube.... that is the business end of itemization in D3 patch 2.3.


    Simply getting a 6 piece set together isn't going to get you anywhere special. It's what you do with it that counts.


    One can be a cynic and think all of these changes were meant to cater to casual players. Or one could look deeper still and see that Diablo 3 is almost rebellious in it's freedom to build without having to purchase your items with real cash. The irony here is; Many of the people I've seen calling modern D3's itemization feeding frenzy as a call to casuals, are the same people who bought their way to success in earlier versions of D3 (AH's) and all throughout D2.


    So we can ask; Is it more "casual" to buy your items with real cash, or to have easier access to them by actually playing the game?


    The developers of Diablo 3 seemed to have flipped a unique switch within the ARPG genre by allowing players easier access to the items they need for builds without the insidious presence of 3rd party handlings. If you think simply cubing up a Witching Hour has elevated you to the top of Mount Fuck All, you are sorely mistaken, sir.


    Beyond simple acquisition of desired items must come the knowledge in how to properly use it; or; When to use something else to pump massive amounts of NON-SHEET dps and toughness from a build using items some people disregard due to the lack of an orange (legendary) property (String of Ears/Eye of Etlich etc).


    For your Diablo 3 enjoyment, might I suggest a beverage change for yourself? Switch from Haterade to refreshing Kool Aid. Much better to quench your thirst.

    posted a message on Is there any advantage to playing HC?
    Quote from HarleyMgo-next

    Quote from ruksak
    The truth is; HC is more of a challenge than Standard, this cannot be argued. It isn't up for debate.

    The game isn't more of a challenge, it just has a lose condition. In fact, the way many people play HC the game ends up being significantly LESS of a challenge, because you avoid anything that could seriously threaten the life of your character. In Season 3, a Softcore group of 4 cleared grift 77. In Hardcore, the higher cleared grift was 68. I would wager that nobody in Hardcore ever even attempted a 77.
    Simply put, some people enjoy the challenge of taking on content that pushes the limits of their gear more than the "challenge" of not disconnecting and not having a partner that gets you killed. Some people enjoy trying again when they fail to meet that challenge, rather than giving up and starting over. Which isn't to discount the challenge of keeping yourself alive, but just to say that it is a very different challenge, and not necessarily "more" of one.
    There is a myth that most/all HC players "play it safe" by staying in low torments and hiding under low Grift tiers.

    To boil out the fat; We see the challenge of softcore grifting is to beat the timer....that's it. You're against a clock and that's it.
    In HC, you're against that same clock with the added challenge of not making a serious mistake and dying. Permanent death, you have to re-roll that character before you try again.
    This is what I mean by "more of a challenge". There is literally more of a challenge in HC. Softcore players didn't clear 77 because they can face more of a challenge than HC players. They did so because they could die and keep going.
    I absolutely assure you that many HC players tried to get higher than 68. There is no leaderboard showing "good tries". Many tried and failed because they cannot play with the same reckless abandon that SC players do. As well, many tried and failed because they died....ya know....due to the extra challenges of HC play.

    Keep the requests coming folks.... rucksack has done a stellar job of cleaning up the inactives and bringing in new active folks. (make sure you thank but dont expect an immediate reply - he's a HC player). Last night - we had close to 50 members on at one time.

    Thanks for the kind words. I don't think anyone will soon forget the work you did to get the clan going. As a long time member of the clan, it didn't take off until you led the way. Before you arrived, it was just another clan. Now.... it's packed and active with real fans of the game.

    Include your full Btag here in this thread so I know who to look for, and I'll see if we can find room. I won't be back until this evening, so give me some time to work you in. There should be some wiggle room to get you in. It's going to be very difficult to work you in unless we're both online at the same time. PM me in-game. (Btag in my siggy).

    If you (or anyone) requests an invite, please check back often, because we often have only a few spots open and MANY invites sent out. This is done to fill open spots expeditiously, as well as treat invites on a first-come first-serve basis. All too often people receive invites and they either don't follow up, or otherwise haven't left their old clan yet.

    yall might want to consider getting the dfans community active again - seems like that would solve most of the problems you folks have mentioned (not enough space for members, people leaving for other clans, and adequate oversight).


    I'm not sure why the community channel doesn't get more activity, nor how we could bolster it. It seems to primarily get used during PTR.

    As for members leaving; We're only seeing a few a day do this, and they're people that you never see in chat, that never really engage the clan. Probably just leaving in search of greener pastures, many to find clans with 50 half-ass active members who never talk to each other (I've been in a few of those).

    But for those reading this who cannot get into Dfans; Just add yourself to the Diablofans community chat channel (in-game) and that way you can reach us and get in on groups etc. Myself (and all the other officers) keep the channel open.

    Why don't ya'll make a second <dfans2> or something since you are overflowing with members?

    Diablofans requires that, since the clan is tied to this website, the clan requires oversight from the website admin. Too many clans tied to this site would be a pain in Molster's ass. For example; If we had members/officers saying overtly racist jokes in the clan chat, it would not reflect well on this site, it's partners, and it's administrators.
    We have a few people leave everyday (not sure why they'd go and do a thing like that), so keep sending in-game join requests and i'll invite as spots free up. Some people leave to start their own clan, or to join a friends clan. If any of you have ever been in a slow, inactive clan, you would appreciate the Dfans clan for what it is.

    HC just gives you a reason to pay attention to what your doing. SC is to much of a mindless meat grind for me. If they were to penalize players for dying in SC, say the loss of an item or wiping of Paragon levels, than I might actually play SC.


    There is already a mode with a penalty for death. I don't think Blizz would change that at this point.
    With the aspect of competition inexorably tied to Grifts, SC players suffer stacking time penalties from death. So there's that. That functions as a DP good enough I believe.
