I want to give the full anonymous viewer base on dfans a chance to way in, dispel or confirm a vocal minority as it were. I'm not by any means saying the meager dfans community is the end all be all, but I want to see what you think.
And I understand that there are more days to blizzcon, but the gameplay updates aren't looking too intensive.
I'm content with the upcoming updates. I'm looking forward to it! I honestly can't wait to get on the PTR next week to check out the Anniversary Dungeon; in fact I have just started replaying Diablo 1 to remember what the different lvls look like. I'm excited about the Necromancer, just hesitant to say that I will get it because I don't know how much it will cost.
I've been playing POE for the past couple of months, just came back to D3 for the new season after missing a couple but...
I'm slightly content... the D1 remake does nothing for me, I played D1 when it came out, it's the game that got me into Blizzard. It's the easy choice for a revisit as well, much smaller in scale to D2, which is definitely the most notable game 8 the series.
The only " exciting" news is the Necro, but that not coming out for the foreseeable future is extremely disappointing. The implication of class packs might be good. I could go for a new class every 3 months or so.
The current dev meta of releasing sets for builds is disappointing. All the builds have been done...
The only core problem that's SLIGHTLY being addressed is the power cap, with challenge rifts.
No new Diablo game (didn't think there would be one though). No new expansion (bummed about that), but, not even a big patch close down the road to look forward to. Just... an anniversary event. Which is cool! don't get me wrong! But man, when that's ALL, ya know?
And now we know that the Necro patch is sometime 'in the second half of 2017'?
Pretty uh, I feel pretty strange. If they're not even going to try to fix the core problems, the reasons WHY people say it doesn't feel like an actual Diablo game, I just don't know.
I am also frustrated. Why was adressed almost in each post here.. :D.
But i think the idea of challenger rifts while leaving the paragon system as it is, is somewhat good.
Dont get me wrong the system isnt good. But it would be a ton of work to rework everything ( they clearly do not have the manpower (I think the higher devs said something like "prepare cool stuff for blizzcon" and nobody had even time for the balance patches) but having this the few grinders that still exist can still be
better (sure just because of paragon, but what else is there) and at the same time a competition without paragonlevels / items can have a place.
It depends on how much fun these challenger rifts are.
I think the biggest problem is that they let build up such a hype about a new expansion or a new game (why not posting "sorry wont happen this year but we still have stuff"), so everyone HAD to be disappointed.
The announcement of the Necro class got me excited just to know that this class may only be available in the half of 2017? Ok, chill, there is this 16 stages Diablo 1 Dungeon, cool..wait what? In retro-look? Oh come on! Ok, we still have this Build Organizer and mats Organizer, right? Thats something, right?
Nah, with all this new stuff, patch 2.4.3 thingy, I am disappointed, all the hype with BlizzCon will be really cool this year for Diablo and vopes for at least a 2.5 were so high, that not even this is a reality. Its not that I do not like the stuff they announced, but this is not what I expected in so many ways possible. With all the hype about a D4, expansion 2 or D2HD, my guess was at least a major 2.5 Patch, but hey, now we get seasons on consoles..yay
uhm , im quite happy I guess. Only down side for me is that I have to wait so long for the necro
I think xpacs are not a model they want to pursue anymore. They probably have their reasons. And it is fine if I get stuff through dlc instead of xpacs. We just get some zones and experiences for free and we pay a bit for a character. All in all the content could add up to an expansion. I dont know, Ill just enjoy the D1 remake and the necro...
Yeah, maybe the DLC is a good idea. With a new character or even a new act for some money, they could make this. Very welcome though. They need to announce more details today, what they want to do for the future of D3, if this Model is going to happen or not.
Maybe i am misunderstanding the Diablo1 event, are they saying that it is going to come once a year as in January and then its gone for the next 11 months, i really don't like this time frame at all, i would prefer it spawn say every last weekend of the month just for a couple of days and then vanish till the next month again. Maybe it should be part of a new season where it gets refreshed on every new season reset
Unless there plan is to have events like wow and they are going to release regular event content i almost find 11 months of not available a total waste, prehaps i am reading this all wrong.
i agree dlc and packs are nice but where is fixes for stuff what needs fixing PARAGON system and some more bigger problems.
Lets see today what they mean with Challenge Rifts,
new feature, will be coming next year. They will be an even playing
ground: Paragon levels, Augments, full Ancients - none of that will
matter in there. More info on them tomorrow.
Hi all, well I haven't been hyped, cos I've been off for a while, so I'm not that much disappointed, but just 1 month event? And necro+2 more maps?? I've expected more. Well I'll check that dungeon and that's me done with diablo. Mayb will check that necro at some point, but I'm bored of playing all t same maps and monsters all way around in years. Necro sounds good but in still same d3 again? I need a bit more than that:( On t other side there is a other games I can play;) Good luck and have fun ppl...
There will be a Dev Talk today, so maybe we will hear more about upcoming content and the future of D3. I hope they are aware of the Paragon Grinding problems, so that there will be a major patch coming next year with the release of the Necromancer Character Pack. This sounds like they are going to make more Character Packs or even Map Packs or Acts to buy. If this is the way they are going, I'm all in.
With that event: yes for now this is a anniversary Patch for the month of January, they plan to make more Events like this. So we will see...
