Would you like to see a HC Ladder?
Poll: Should HardCore have a Ladder?
Should HardCore have a Ladder? - Single Choice
- Doesn't matter to me because I die at level 5 in Hardcore. 9.1%
- No. 20.1%
- Yes, based on # of Inferno Monsters Killed 53.2%
- Yes, but just for Levels. 17.5%
Concerns that the Real Money Auction House would not function well with a ladder system are null and void in HC, due to the fact that there will be none.
What are the Hardcore playing DFans thoughts on this?
Another thought is not how many monsters killed in inferno but how many bosses killed in inferno, where a boss is the end act boss and mini boss like the Skeleton King currently in Beta.
I'm still completely undecided about ladders in D3 though since everyone will be lvl 60 ragardless...How do you have a ladder when everyone is the same level, what do you base it on next then?
The problem with that is: it encourages players to wear a clown-suit of their higest level gear in order to top the ladder. I don't think it can be that arbitrary. Cumulative item level, monster kills, boss kills, character level; those things are not doing to show much and that ladder would be unimpressive. I hold to the achievement pitch being the most viable option, unless achievements themselves turn out ot be easy, random, or arbitrary to get.
A ladder system would work in nearly the same way it did in D2 at 60 they have an exp climb with no cap and that runs the ladder. Now as for the RMAH I wish they would add one for Hc which actually bums me out because 100% of my time will be invested into Hc. I mean the people that play Hc know the risk of losing there gear but they still play so what if you buy real gear you still are aware of the risk and can only blame yourself if you go and die.
That`s why I think it is good to have this option based on # of Inferno Monsters Killed.
We all can reach lvl60 quite easily so there is no point for the ladder. Only if you still gained exp after hitting 60 you could rank people by their exp.
RIP: Demon Hunter: lvl 50 | Barb: lvl 60 (plvl 5) | Monk: lvl12 & lvl70 (plvl 200)
The only way I think it would work is if rank was given by a number of factors, not just level alone.
Probably a combination of most things PVE, boss kills, minion kills/tallies etc etc, it could be a combination of a whole bunch of appropriate statistics. At least this way there would be some competition for the top spot continuously.
You could and I assume they will do the same for PVP separately seeing as there's a better focus on it in D3.
So I hope they do add one in, as long as they do it right.
This one would be more interesting, since you would have to keep playing on Inferno, which is dangerous, to be kept at the top ladder!
I really hope they, somehow, implement this feature, if it isn't already and nobody knows!!!
Wow, no Ladder. Hmm. I guess if there's no ladder, not all is lost. At least then I know everything I collect will be for all-time!
