I don't think this has been stated before, but will the pvp in diablo 3 be more refined? Can you only battle people within your level range or will a lvl 99 still be able to hostile you at what ever level you are? I think everyone has went through being hostiled by a lvl 90+ character while your only lvl 9-50. I want it where if your level 88, you only only hostile people 80+.
Sorry if this has been posted before.

SAY WHAT AGAIN, I DARE YOU, I DOUBLE DARE YOU MOTHER ******
well they havent gone into specifics... but they have said they want to get rid of PK'ing.... so I would assume the hostility would have to be mutual. Their are trying to make diablo much more of a cooperative game... prob where you get much more benefit from partying with someone rather than going hostile and just stealing their shit.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
Diablo 2's PvP encouraged griefing. Now seriously, it was ALL about griefing. Encourage in picking up other people's gold, encouraged in naked killing other players, encouraged in drinking potions while duealing, encouraged in running back to town before the battle is over and healing at Akara, encouraged in lame-killing other players with poison, unbalanced skills and such, encouraged in going 1 vs. many and partying while duealing (unfair when number is not even), encouraged in dueling people who don't agree to duel, encouraged in dueling lower level characters, encouraged in... BAH! you get the point.
And you know what's funny? I'm fine with that! Yeah really. I think that diablo was one of the only games that were 'brave' enough to create a system that is all about griefing and hating each other! I had alot of good time with this system... trash talking other players and taking gold from lamers. It was like a chaos, but funny chaos if you know what I mean.
Whatever Blizzard chooses. Wether they bring back the griefing system or choose to stick with World of Warcraft's goody-goody fair dueling system. I'm fine with both because they both have advantages and disadvantages... although I got this feeling they will stick with the goody-goody system.
Hmmm I dunno, I didn't mind the D2 PVP system but I think something needs to be done to avoid gold farming, naked kills and body guarding. Personally I would like to see the fair PVP system of WoW be implimented into D3, where both players must agree to become hostle with eachother before a fight can take place. Or alternativley perhaps you can flag yourself as hostile, and can only attack (or be attacked by) other hostile players?
Finally, maybe when you host a game you can tick a PVP ENABLED box and all other joiners can see this prior to entering the game. One of the worst things about D2 is when lowibies join a public game to quest and follow the story and some lvl 99 sorceress joins and PKs you all just before the end boss to be an ass...
I love how people misinterpret the age and forgetfulness of DII's development as "they totally want us to grief".
Of course! They totally wanted us to grief xD They surely meant something when they made the runeword "Grief" ^^
Okay now seriously, Blizzard had alot of chances to change PvP in the past patches. My guess is that the game was so successful they left almost everything untouched... and they were right because it did have it's magic... but anyway, I'm leaving this subject for now. Gonna keep my nerves for when they tell us about PvP.
