    And nobody even mentions the free Diablo 1 remake. It's just "all we got was necromancer!"


    Pathetic.


    If you hate Diablo 3 so much, find another game to play. That's what I did.

    It's on Blizzards end, not yours, but they won't admit it since they don't know what causing the problem.

    They can't admit it until they know what's causing the problem. It may very well be something related to an ISP.

    posted a message on D3 lost 50 % of players?
    Quote from Drahquego-next

    What do you guys think is the reason why there is much less players this season?


    I can think of a couple reasons:
    1. Other games. Overwatch is hugely popular and is leaching players from games of all genres.
    2. Diablo 3 has had barely any meaningful changes content since RoS launched. You can mix up abilities every patch, but you're still playing the same content and that shit gets old fast. Even ARPG players are going to get tired of the same content over an extended period of time.

    posted a message on I think the future of D3 is looking bright tbh.,,
    Quote from Booker64go-next

    Diablo 3 is the tenth best selling video game of all time! This is quite an achievement especially with quarterly patches constantly changing the game keeping it from getting boring. Sales will continue and I can see this game hitting within the top 5 of all time sales. Kudos to Blizzard for keeping content active. Every patch feels like I am playing a new aspect of the game, making this the longest game that I have ever played.

    Ehh... I kind of get the feeling that anyone playing the game that hasn't gotten bored is either a new player or the kind of player who wouldn't quit in the first place, because Diablo 3 got boring a looooong time ago for most of us.

    Well, you obviously dont understand the only point of view that matters for blizzard which is money. due to the fact that diablo neither got a subscription feature nor microtransactions diablo is basically just the 5th wheel of blizzard games.





    You know, it's funny you say that. Last I checked, Blizzard removed the Real-Money Auction House from Diablo 3. You know, that in-game feature where Blizzard got a portion of every real-money sale?


    Sounds like maybe money isn't all that they care about.




    i wondered when this would come up and by whom xD
    this statement just yells "look at me i have absolutely no idea about business models but im still dumb enough to participate in a discussion" :*D
    its so sad that most ppl just eat every "official" statement without questioning.
    the point why blizzard actually removed the rmah is that blizzard didnt realise in the first place that they were acting like a bank with the rmah system like it was so that all money first went to a blizzard account where it actually was stored until they took their part of the money and transfered it to the one who actually sold something. if they would have made the system that ppl just transfered the money directly without taking fees like they did this wouldnt have been the case. with the system like it was blizzard would have been forced to actually pay additional bank fees and taxes which are a huge amount of costs.
    u are living in a dream world. blizzard is a company, companies work for money or are u working for free in a full time job? business is business and not charity


    By all means, continue to ignore the fact that Blizzard is constantly taking risks in WoW expansion development, which completely goes against the "Let's make money!" theory that you have. Continue to think that you have any clue about how Blizzard is run. If you want to look like a clueless moron, who am I to stop you?


    Let me ask you this: Why would Blizzard make a teamplay-based FPS when they've never made an FPS before? Overwatch is a huuuuge risk for Blizzard and they're committed to it. That's not the kind of thing you do when all you're interested in is making money. Oh, and there's also the fact that their last two games were free to play, which is another risk.

    posted a message on The meaning of TurboHUD and why it is much more than just a hack
    Quote from Umbrasjggo-next

    Shorter: the OP is a cheater, option #1 guy. Sound about right?

    Is TurboHUD cheating if Blizzard never chooses to ban for it? I mean, they could easily ban every single user of it at any point, so... it's awfully telling that they haven't.

    posted a message on what happened to the loot hunting?
    Quote from Bleu42go-next

    Quote from Autocthongo-next

    That free set counts for nothing as far as actually farming goes. Saves you two or three days of play. Perfect gear still takes a considerable length of time, with XP farming following that.




    Sorry but in my opinion, getting all the gear you need in a couple days and then spending three months sifting through thousands of legendary drops hoping for the same thing with a couple more stats =/= an actual, fun loot hunt. It's become paragon grind: the game, and it's just disappointing.


    Congratulations! You've just realized what everyone else who has quit the game realized long ago. Loot treadmills don't stay fun forever. There are probably more people who haven't played Diablo 3 in years than there are current players. That, to me, is the mark of bad game design.


    Yes, I'm suggesting that loot treadmills are bad game design. No, I don't expect you guys to agree with me. You've all made it perfectly clear that all you really need is slightly altered abilities and legendaries every few months.

    posted a message on 30 million units sold and nothing new?

    IMO, if they were adding in things like Greed's Realm and Set Dungeons a few patches after RoS, I'd probably still be playing. But, nope, Diablo 3 is and always will be (because YOU, the players, won't allow anything else) a loot treadmill.


    I love the world and the story and you guys love the loot and figuring out new ways to kill the same stuff. Blizzard sided with you guys. :(

    posted a message on Bot??

    A bot is a character being controlled through automated processes, like scripts or external programs. They are used by players who want to collect items and XP without actually being at their computer to do the work.

    posted a message on non GR end game idea
    Quote from Kevango-next

    Yes. In arpg, loot should be the endgame, not just experience/pl farming.

    Still, i believe that instead of the Best in Slot, it should be trying new builds.

    Not simply that must-have cookiecutter build with that item everybody is looking for, and obviously the rarest one with high costs, low rates or mandatory crafting.

    A bit like poe, with easy, expensive or so-and-so builds.

    And this is why I probably won't ever come back to Diablo 3. The community seems to think that endgame = loot... and that's just not fun. You're playing the same content over and over again. There's no reason that loot should have to be the endgame, but no one is interested in putting any meaningful thought into figuring out an alternative.

    If you guys want to actually discuss some of the very real problems facing this game (and how to bring back those of us who got tired of it), then, by all means, let's have a discussion.


    If, however, all you're going to do is say that Diablo 3 isn't the right game for those like me, then don't bother. Just let the thread die, as does every other thread with legitimate complains and suggestions about end-game and the future of the game. I'd rather just forget this game exists than continue being told that it's not for me.

    Guys please understand, you want changes for something you do not care enough about to play it.



    No, you need to understand: I played it. Yes, it's true that I stopped playing it, but I played it.

    Why did I stop playing it? Because it's the same thing over and over and over again and it GOT OLD. It's not my problem that the average person still playing Diablo 3 is fine with investing hundreds (thousands?) of hours into doing the exact same thing every day, every patch, all the time. That's not the kind of game I want to play and that's why I quit. You guys keep saying, "Well, if that's not the kind of game you want to play, then find another game, because that's Diablo 3." Yeah, that is Diablo 3... and that's the problem. It's a one-trick pony that appeals to a very narrow margin of players. I mean, I noticed it the whole time I was playing -- communities and clans are always shrinking and the amount of active people on my friends list are getting less and less.


    Why should you take my opinion seriously? Because there are hundreds of thousands of other players who have quit for the same reason as I. In fact, I'm willing to bet that there are more people who have stopped playing Diablo 3 than there are currently playing it. And I'm willing to bet that most of them quit playing it because it got old.


    The only people still playing Diablo 3 are those who don't care that the game never really changes. You guys are fine with doing the same bullshit all the time. Well, I'm not fine with it. That's why I've made suggestions. That's why other people make suggestions. That's why we quit when the rest of the dwindling community tells us that Diablo 3 isn't the game for us. I actually want to be able to enjoy this game. I want it to improve and expand. I want there to be new and interesting content to draw me and those like me back. I don't think that's asking too much. The problem, though, is that you guys think that we shouldn't be asking for anything. You think that this game belongs to you guys -- those of you who can handle investing hundreds of hours into leveling a character up from scratch every season. I mean, seriously, how does it not get old for you? Diablo 3 has become one of the most creatively bankrupt games I've ever played and you guys just eat it up. Do you want for nothing?!


    When I quit playing, I was closing in on the higher level grifts. The only way I could've gone further is if I were willing to invest a couple hundred more hours into getting slightly better gear. That wasn't fun.


    Before you start talking shit about my playtime/paragon level/gear (which, btw, were above average during the time I quit playing), you have to keep in mind the time at which I quit playing. It was before ancient items. It was before level 45+ grift clears. Even though all that time has passed, the game is still almost exactly the same. There's no new content -- just higher level grifts and an item that lets us use an additional 3 inventory slots worth of legendary powers. End game is still rifting and grifting, So, basically, we're still doing exactly the same thing we were doing when the expansion launched over a year and a half ago. That's why we make suggestions and why we quit when they're ignored and people tell us that this isn't the game for us. This game is nothing but a carrot on a stick and I'm not hungry for it. It's bullshit.


    It's really sad, because I absolutely loved this game at launch (both the original and the expansion). Had they kept adding new, interesting things to the game, I'd still be playing. Not because I think the gameplay is awesome, but because I love the world and the story. I love the angels and the demons and the nephalem. I love fighting difficult bosses. The only thing I don't like is having to do the same thing over and over again for the rest of the game's lifespan.

    Good luck coming up with an idea for end-game that the community will support. Diablo 3 is full of people who absolutely. do. not. want. their. game. changed.


    Boss rush mode? NO! GRIFTS OR NOTHING!

    New bosses? NO! GRIFTS OR NOTHING!
    Other good suggestions? NO! GRIFTS OR NOTHING!


    "Diablo 3 isn't your type of game." Well, no shit. Some people like games where the end-game isn't the exact same as what you've been farming for the past several months.


    Seriously... all Blizzard has to do is shuffle around/rebalance abilities every few months and the Diablo 3 community will be perfectly satisfied. Hell, at some point, all they'll have to do is continue the seasonal rotation (even without new items) and the community will be satisfied. This community doesn't seem to want anything introduced that might have even a slight impact on the current end-game dynamic.


    Yes, I realize I probably shouldn't be bitching about Diablo fans on a Diablo fansite, but I really don't care. I loved playing Diablo 3 until I realized that they weren't ever going to add anything new and interesting. At that point, I started making suggestions and the community essentially kicked me out ("Diablo 3 must not be your type of game"). So, whatever.




    You are completely wrong. Speak for yourself and not the community. Most people voicing their opinions do want the game changed, a better end game etc etc..


    Bullshit.

    Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.

    You might want end-game changes -- I certainly do -- but don't fool yourself into thinking that the community in general feels the same way. I read these forums. I read the Reddit posts. Anytime someone makes any kind of suggestion about adding to or changing end-game content, the community erupts on them and tells them that Diablo 3 isn't the game for them. This game will never see any meaningful end-game changes because the community will not allow it and that is 100% the truth.
