Everyone see negative things like easier leaderboards climb, and no one see positives. I'm playing this game from premiere, spend thousands of hours, but I never cared about leaderboards, conquests and sh*t, so I think I'm casual player only. For me, THUD was just usefull, comfortable tool, it provided better interface, which lazy Blizzard should give us long time ago. Do you remember how long did we ask for little things like time indicator for skills?
Now (for me) playing this game is too annoying, because of dumb, time-wasting things like going to stash everytime when I want to check how much mats I have.
And people, who only blame KJ and can't see any positives, should go back to past, where Diablo interface was such poor and sad, that even legendaries didn't appear on minimap.
