Quote from ruksakAfter 12 years, there's going to be some evolution in the series and, as a former long time D2 player, IMO D3 feels like Diablo. It just needs depth.
I'll remove my comment from the previous post. Sorry if I offended you.
All good. I deleted my post on it but you replied before that. Neighbors kid has me sensitive to that stuff.
I agree on the needs depth. Which is the whole story of why it doesn't feel like Diablo to me. Every single design decision works against depth. The WoW stats, the skill system (which WoW stole from them?), map generation, etc. I think the AH should be removed but I don't blame them at all for trying it. Without D3 as an example I would have never known the problems an auction house brings. It is a learning experience for all game developers going forward. Also, butterflies killed Deckard. I would have rather him be beaten to death with Wirts third leg.
