Quote from Azidonis
I was really enjoying it right until I read the words "account bound".
D2 has zero account bound items (0), and works just fine, but D3 players seem to think that account bound items are the way to go.
If the system is actually fixed, no account bound items are necessary.
Couldn't agree more - but fixing it involves blizzard letting go of the RMAH and USD-GOLD cashcow and we can't have that now can we?
I think Blizzard's desire to milk the interconnectedness of today's game for money led them to homogeneous itemisation which ultimately hurts the game's replayability. Then to remedy the fact they add account-bound converting what would have been a fun "look what I got" item hunting game into a single player grind. Plenty of better single player grind games around...Skyrim anyone?
