    posted a message on Diablo 3 is no more an RPG game, its more like an arcade fight game.
    Quote from Koksiigo-next


    yeah and skilltrees, pvp and trading are bad, right?

    If Activision adds a skilltree system in the next CoD, does that make it an RPG game?


    Either the whole community has been replaced with WOW Wotlk+ players or people are just following blindly what blizzard tells them like its a
    religion...


    Because god forbid someone likes something that you don't like.


    Even though I couldn't play in this last season because of time constraints (WoW, work and a baby took all my time), I love the current state of the game. I had more fun than I ever had in Diablo 2. And I have played both Diablo and Diablo 2 for years. I like that there is no trading, beause that is one thing I didn't like in Diablo 2: the need to trade to build your character because of the abysmal drop rates. Now I can find all the items I want with just playing the game. I also like that the game doesn't give attention to PvP. This way, PvE can get more content and get balances much easier, as the developers' attention isn't divided between PvE and PvP aspects.

    Diablo series has never been RPG. A better term for Diablo-like games is "dungeon crawler".

    posted a message on More Content YES. Micro Transactions NO!

    Asian market is different than West. In WoW's Asia servers, Raid lockouts are more frequent and there are microtransactions which helps your character like experience boost potions. But US/EU/Oceanic servers don't have these options. Now, just because there will be some non-cosmetic transactions in Asia servers, this doesn't mean that they will come to west servers as well.


    Edit: It seems the raid lockouts in WoW Asia servers were changed with the new expansion pack. Thank you Vaximillian for the corection.

    Quote from Pietrak

    Until the utter pointlessness of the game beyond the item grind is fixed I will come back here with every patch and remind you of the fact that Blizzard in fact didn't do anything revolutionary with the New Patch™.
    Then this is not the game for you. The whole Diablo series is just an item grind game. You enter the game, kill a few hundred demons and undead, collect the loot and close the game, and that is it. This was how it is in Diablo, this was how it is in Diablo 2, and this is how it is in Diablo 3. If you are looking for something else, of course you will be disappointed and complain; but the problem is you, not the game.

    Besides, this patch completely changed Demon Hunter and Monk playstyles, so it was revolutionary for them.

    Quote from Tunafish »
    Simple. If you're not playing in a major league, you dont care what happens in that league, you care what happens in YOUR LEAGUE. Unfortunately, the small fish in here are worried about what's happening in the lake, rather than caring about their aqarium. I bet you, if people put so much effort into learning the game and gearing rather than bashing THUD, they'd be much better now.

    So if a basketball player in a major league uses performance enhancers, makes it's team champion and gets selected as mvp; I don't have a right to say anything about this guy nor the usage of performance enhancers because I'm not a basketball player. Even then I need to play in a major league to open my mouth. Great logic there.

    I don't understand how not playing the game competitively makes people's opinions worthless. It is like, we can't say using drugs in basketball is bad because we are not playing in a major league.

    posted a message on RIP Turbohud, creator called it quits.
    Let's forget about this Turbohud, and think about this: Why do we have rules and laws in the first place? Because We live in a society, and we need order to maintain that society. Now, if someone disobeys the rules set by the society, it creates unrest and disrupts the order, whether it effects the whole society or not. If there has been a robbery in your neighborhood, it will make you nervous even though you weren't the robbed, because you can be the next target. A corrupt police who takes bribe will make you angry, even though he lives in the other side of the country and you won't have to deal with him, because he gets undeserved money and gains an unfair advantage in the society. Many more examples can be given. If I break my rival athlete's leg, it doesn't effect you as you won't race anyway. But if doesn't mean I shouldn't get punished because of I gained an unfair advantage. If I cheat on stock market, it doesn't effect the people who haven't invested in stocks, but I still should get punished because I gained an unfair advantage.

    In the end, every time someone disobeys the rules, that person gains an advantage in the society; and that is why the whole society is affected when someone disobeys the rules. You may think that it doesn't effect you, but when I win more and more races because I cheat, you will know that is wrong.

    Diablo 3 is a society, where it's rules are set by Blizzard. And because it is a society, it creates unrest when someone decides to cheat in it, whether it effects us or not. In the current state of the game, botting may seem unimportant; but a person who bot will get paragon levels, better items and a good Hellfire Amulet much faster that a person who does not. A maphack will make people avoid dead-ends, saving them time. An add-on which gives elite information in a much easier way will help people making better decisions when engaging them. Something like a mapscanner may give information of what kind of shrines or monsters there is so people can try to fish for the perfect rift to achieve higher level rifts. All these cheats will give an unfair advantage to the user one way or another; and this is why it creates unrest within people, whether we care in competition or not.

    Now, you may understand why people caring in competition and racing in ladders do care for people who cheat, but may get confused when people who doesn't care for ladders also care when people cheat. It is normal, and called "empathy".

    posted a message on Lousy Kridershort worth using?
    It depends on what you want. If you are ok with a passive style, go for Manticore. Personally, I don't like that kind of playstyle, so I am using a Kridershot even though I had a better bow.

    The question is this: If you find a wallet on the ground with one thousand dollars in it, would you keep it to yourself or give it to the police? If you choose the former, then you are an asshole and I feel sorry for you. If you choose the latter, then congratulations, you know it is always wrong to abuse the rules.

    posted a message on Elemental types in D3
    They did it like this to prevent people getting the element dealing the most damage and ignoring the rest. Kinda like what happened in Diablo 2, where lightning is the most used element because it gave the best damage or like in D3 vanillia, where +cold damage rolls in weapons were lower than other elements because of it's slow effect, and Blizzard announced that it was the least used elemental type. With this way, they don't have to balance elemental effects, they can just balance skills instead.

    Quote from Decemberdk

    D2 is made by god, D3 is made by blizzard employees.
    And those "gods" tried to make Diablo 3 a MMO game, and made Hellgate: London, which is said to revolutionize the ARPG genre and failed even in comparison to Diablo 2. And then they closed the studio they formed without making any more games which shows how successful their visions are and how much they understood their playerbase. So if they have made Diablo 3, you wouldn't even have an ARPG game.

    Returning to topic: In my opinion, keeping Adventure mode was a good choice. I have played the story for whole vanillia, and done enough act 5 runs in RoS. Yes, seasons mean a fresh start, and I did started from scratch: level 1, level 1 artisans, basic and empty stash, no gear. What you should look for is the similar rewards for both modes. The problem isn't Adventure mode being available; the problem is, Adventure mode is superior in terms of both experience and items.

    It is not that simple, as we have seen on Diablo 2. Once you open the flood gates, you can't escape it.

    But the seasons itself doesn't offer challenge. It is just a reset button. Even if you start from scratch, if you can overpower the game now, you can do it in season.

    Quote from shaggy
    Why Blizzard is so reluctant to give the players power is beyond me. Josh must have a severe case of schadenfreude or something. I can't really explain it otherwise. What is so revolting about players gaining power over time? Isn't that the core of an ARPG?
    I think it is because there is two sides of the coin. Some people wants to be able to smash through in the hardest difficulty, and some people wants the hardest difficulty to be a serious challenge. I don't think it is possible to please both sides simultaneously.

    I won't give you any proof, like you won't. Why should I? You said that words are enough proof.
