Since i have yet to play the beta my opinion is invalid. I can speculate what the pros of the game will be that pvp arena was a great idea.. becuase i dont know about you but when i played diablo 2 and was a low level around 9+ i would get people joining the game just to kill me. That clears up that problem. I know these is a big controversial topic when it comes to the Auction House. Personnally I think its a great idea..I dont know how ill use it in my benefits maybe ill buy items or sell. I could go on little longer what could be the pros but ill move on.
The only con in my opinion of the game that i can forsee is that there trying to go console? well how does that work if its online only? If someone with more experience in this field could elaborate that be cool.
I honeslty think this is going to be a awesome game where ill play hours upon hours on...but im most curious of what you guys think will be the pros and cons?
There of course will be more pros than cons, but one con for me is that only 4 players will be allowed to be in the game. I liked in Diablo 2 how 8 people were allowed, it created more diversity and a sense of a community. with 4 players not all the characters will be in game nor will the diversity be as vast.
i also do not have the beta and i can only go by other peoples opinions. i hear alost of positive thing and the changes blizz is making is for the best. the only issue i have and "force" has said it in his monk youtube video is that when he uses a skill he punches so any weapon hes holding appears on his side until the skill is dont and when you continue on he has the weapon in his had i think that is the only con. it takes away from the gaming experience.
Heh, well we all wish that could be the case. In my mind, when I was playing Diablo 2 in 2001, there were no cons to the game...absolutely none. Then again, I was 11 years younger and I'm a bit more fussy nowadays (I can't find a suitable game to fulfill the void till D3 launches). I still believe that I'll find everything good about the game and ignore all the bad because I'll just be insanely happy to play it.
I don't have 8 Diablo-playing friends, so that won't be a problem. I feel kinda meh about the AH but I'm not going to be forced to use it. Diablo 3 going to consoles isn't going to effect me in the slightest. Long story short I just want to play it. I have never thought of taking off time from work or anything of the like when a video game launched but I'm seriously considering it in this case.
This game has tons of pros, but there is really just one major concern with the game: with the relative ease of skill-swapping, will my character still have a sense of identity? I do agree that I shouldn't have to lvl a character from 0-60 just to try a new, full build, but I think that the current system makes it too easy. This is the thing I'm worried about the most.
Well, that and the con that Diablo 3 will basically kill my studies and whatever semblence of a social life I have T___T.
i didn't play the game yet but from the info and the videos it seems to live to my expectations.
i won't write down all the pros d3 have cuz it's quite alot and i can't be here all day.however i will like to point out a few pros which r rly significant for me:
-there is a monk class with martial arts, fist weapons and staves! - this 1 alone brought bliz a customer(other than the obvious rep and history of bliz as a gaming company)
-shared stash between all chars, alot of inventory space and the biggest item takes 2 slots space in inventory.
-personal loot table for each player( instead of the awful fastest clicker wins all loot like in d2)
-regular and friendly crafting system(instead of the bunch a few items in the horadric cube to get something)
-cross games communication.
i don't have much cons for now other than: the monks general animations instead of a spacific weapon animations and mayB the 10 char max per account limitation. tho they r not too important to me, so i wrote them down just for sake of the discussion.
anyway those few of my thoughts about d3 as an appealing game.
Would you say you ever had more than 8 characters that you Actively played in diablo 2?
In my opinion you maybe had 1MF hammer/sorc, some people had a uber smite but most didnt. The rest of characters would be baalrunning characters, pvp characters or GF barbs. Myself I had 2-3 actively played characters and the rest of them were filled with items. With the enlarged stash and minimized size of items I think filling multiple accs of mules is gone.
well it's true at any period of time i had like about 3-4 i played, but ofc cuz i collect gear so i have plenty of chars just as mule, but sometime i play with them so they can hold more items or if i have a certain kind of items on a char i would have liked to lvl that particular char to be focus on the items he is holding. and ofc cuz i wanted to try all kinds of builds - for each build i open a char and thats was nice. technically in d3 u don't need to reopen a char for a different build, but still most likely i would like to open new chars for every certain build i wish - and sometimes me and my cousin like to open together new chars to lvl together only, in addition to our other chars. so i might get frustrated cuz of lack of char slots - but i believe i will get used to it and i will find an alternative option( worst case scenario i will delete 1 of the chars and reopen another 1 or just sell that char in the ah - if that option will be available at that time )
