I've been scouring the forums for a solution to this problem, but couldn't find any help. Basically I want to check the box in the gameplay menu that says "Enable Monster Power Selection", but it isn't there. I have a full account so that couldn't be the problem, but while looking for a solution to this all I could find was people saying where the option is supposed to be, it simply isn't in my menu. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Correct! Monster Power was removed in Patch 2.0.1, along with the tiered difficulty system that required you to play through Normal, Nightmare, Hell, and Inferno in a very linear way.
Now, instead of the tiered difficulty system, monsters will level up with your characters (we call this "dynamic difficulty"). In addition, we've replaced Monster Power with 10 new difficulty levels: Normal, Hard, Expert, Master, and Torment 1-6. Normal, Hard, and Expert difficulties will be immediately available to all of your heroes, while Master and Torment 1-6 will unlock as you progress through the campaign. (Master will unlock for your account once one of your heroes completes Act IV, and Torment will unlock for your account once one of your heroes hits level 60.)
