  • posted a message on PTR 1.0.8 Patch Notes
    So in short:

    Nef to Act 3 farming while buffing Act 1,2 & 4 density. (Won't change much besides where people farm, doubt it will be a balanced choice either)

    Now forced to play in a group for efficiency. (Due to the massive boost added and how gear is rolled based on MF it's just to good to pass up as it's individual loot. PoE at least have competative looting and only more quantity dropped in a party. Not to mention how awesome this change is for sweatshops and bots, gain more of everything for doing...nothing.)

    Player created chat channels, sort of. (Still not real player created channels but some half assed temporary solution)

    Friends list being less annoying. (Still no mens to remove reacent players manually, like, REALLY?)

    Some minor balance changes one should expect every couple of weeks, not every few months apart.

    “The ecosystems on the PC and console are very different,”


    Translated...

    We realized that the AH caused to many problems and the DRM isn't as vital for console.

    Interesting, so they could change the UI afterall, you just have to buy the game on PS to be able to have a more minimalistic UI...

    The complete Diablo fix is very simple, let Blizzard have their vision of what the game should be, log out from Diablo 3 and log in to Path of Exile and play that instead.

    Problem solved. Problem staying solved.

    Wonder when Jay will stop with he's attempts at reinventing the wheel at every corner, one would think he learned from all the other times he came up short.

  • posted a message on why are the gems on the AH so cheap??
    Same reason people list things at 50% of going market price in WoW or any other game, stupidity justified with the logic "it's just a game and not real money" or "it's not worth more to me"

    I'm also flabbergasted by the greed shown by so many in this thread. They are complaining about loss of value of the items or deflation that ruins their well-oiled gold making machine. "Bad for you!" I say, good for the rest of us that want to find upgrades for our own use.


    You do realize that a big portion of "the rest of you" will be complaining a week after the patch goes live that your new found legendary items not for your class is worth so little right?

    as we might finally get a chance to find a good legendary and/or set, and we can actually afford some of those well-rolled legendaries from AH which are atm hugely overpriced/ impossible to reach without getting good drops and selling them.


    But your drops will be worth less and the top items will just be harder to reach, the only thing helped by increased drops in a AH economy is mid level gear, higher drop rate just moves the bar what's a good item and the almost good items gets more saturated.


    This conversation, if anything, highlights the divide in the player-base's mindset that Blizzard is struggling with. There are those who think the AH is a natural extension of the game and thus the game must entice its use, and there are those who think the game has to be good even if the AH never existed and that using the AH will only spoil the experience. I'm starting to believe that making a Diablo game that compromises for both sides is impossible...

    Oh, and if you're curious, I'm in the non-AH camp. So yeah, I like the change.


    The problem with that is the simple fact that the AH is there and isn't going anywhere, both sides can argue about it all day long and that fact wont change. The compromise for both sides would have been to not have an AH while keeping the trade feature and let people sort it on third party sites and the likes, this would obviously remove any chance for Blizzard to get in on the profits, it would also bring the downside of no real gold sink something the current AH is very good at.

    It only becomes an issue if the player refuse to use the AH, while there is nothing wrong with having that view of the game but at the end of the day it's a handicap the player imposes on him self. Personally I prefer having the AH, that way I can transform my drops to gold and then plan ahead what I want and keep looking for it until I find it, much better than using drops that is almost what you want but still not while hoping that another version of the same item drops with the correct affixes/good roll.

    This is the only way they can tinker with legendary drop rates and see what the possible consequences would be. Should it fail miserably, they can just set the rates back to pre-PTR and it never happened.


    You seriously believe that they would get away with that after posting the change in a patch note?! And no that it's the PTR note doesn't matter in peoples minds.
