You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten. Where can you go from there? Where?
If this wasn't an issue before, it is now. In the past it was enough to ask for a slot and just do constant rifts. Now, with all the changes, it's impossible to test 50% of the add-on because it is related to bounties. In this case farming for bounties is impossible after the first run. Not even top streamers and their minions can manage to test this part of the content since it requires repetitive bounty runs, which take up maybe 10-20 minutes of your time, and then 12 hours to play another 10-20 minutes. At least they should have rigged the PTR to give you a few more options, like reset for bounties.
Because I've come to trust what Gorok says, I'm wondering if maybe this issue is worse than I realized? Am I out of line in asking people to be patient? Is this issue worse than I thought? If so, I apologize for being a jerk about it.
I am a bit taken aback by the lack of actual PTR feedback being shared. All I'm hearing is bitching about wait times. I've come to expect such things from Bnet, but to see so little 2.3 discussion from PTR going on here (best Diablo fans in da world)...... I'm a bit puzzled.
I'm wanting to hear how it's actually feeling to players in PTR?
I realize many are having issues getting in, but certainly some have had time to test it.
What's the reward scaling look like?
How is 1-shot damage looking (both in TX and 45+ Grifts)?
Silly happy face emote aside, I'm not moved much by your post.
This has gotten well into the realm of absurdity. I'd like to hear some ACTUAL feedback about how 2.3 is looking, and it is exceedingly difficult to do so with all the shouting about wait times.
Shouting while in a crowd of people who are all shouting, accomplishes nothing, save for just more shouting. Have you ever heard the term "Setting yourself up for disappointment"?
I'm hearing the histrionic cries from far too many who should've known better. They set themselves up for disappointment, and then shout in everyone's ear about it. I knew this would happen a week ago. A month ago. We all did, but here we are, acting like some measure of surprise has evolved.
Perhaps basic math is more your suit, as opposed to wordsmithing? There is enough room for 'X' in the PTR.
'Y' amount have shown up in line. The difference between 'X' and 'Y' must wait and/or be excluded.
I don't feel bad for those excluded. Tough titty said the kitty.....
"You" aren't required. People are, and it's full. PTR is not guaranteed to anyone, it's a testing phase meant for serious feedback.
....many of those people are exactly the ones spamming every diablo related forum on the internet with complaints about not getting in. When they show an inability to understand the point of a PTR, I don't expect that they'll take their duty in PTR seriously at all.strong>Bagstone: Not only because lots of people are just there "for the fun".....
Dude, I don't even know why you guys reply to Rope. All he does is complains and complains and complains about this game. He is even worse on the d3 forums. I see why they capchta you. I wouldn't want you on my forums either. Like serious? You guys are complaining about how they worded something?
Seriously why do you even play this game?
It's a conversation, not a fight. The issue is your perception of things, not my attitude. Many of my comments are tongue in cheek, not super serious, furious anger. Your inability to perceive this, is your problem, not mine.
Opinions tend to evolve over time, and yes, I thought it was a little limp to make a Cube and proclaim it as trumping the Horadric Cube. As information leaked out a bit at a time, I began to embrace their decision and am now far more comfortable with the comparisons they've drawn.
Try to relax a bit there fella. I've been here for years, and I find it a bit rude for you to just stumble in here dragging beefs from one forum to another. We're all on the same team, if you care to indulge in viewing the big picture.
I do a lot to help people and answer questions when I can. As well, I often speak very highly of this game. It has evolved into a terrific ARPG, and history will likely regard it far more kindly than many people do now.
Yes, they do. You can Google "Blizzard survey" to find some instances of that on Reddit. Unfortunately, they look very similar to spam, so if I ever receive this I might just delete it instantly because I don't click on links in emails from Blizzard ;-)
They can be legit though, as a blueposter pointed out on Reddit:
Yep, I thought I remembered them doing that.
Something for the OP to take note of. Any implementation of a survey is best handled via Email. As a matter of fact, they gave a heads up about this @Bnet before they sent them out, if I remember correctly.
I remember being bummed out that they didn't send me one, cuz I'm super important.
I saw your ava here as I was scrolling through, and was going to give you my support. You would fit the bill nicely. Long time, active member that doesn't get bent or pissed.
You should apply, and if you did, I'd support you 100%.
I was an admin assistant for many years at the now defunct Dtrades.org, for those of you who may remember that site. We were a bit informal and my salty attitude worked well over there. Though I did behave a bit differently due to my position than I behave here.
My history here is a bit too dicey to put the Curse staff in such a gamble as to apply for full mod, as I would be seen as a liability, I'm sure. If they had a "spam-cop" type of position, I'd love to help. It's something we did at Dtrades to help with anti-spam.
It's a mod with the power only to delete/lock threads, and who's only charge is to prevent spam and posts that go staunchly against forum rules. Such a position doesn't have the power to warn, infract, suspend or ban other members.
It might be an idea for Curse to consider, if the software has such permissions. Good luck to all !!!
