My feedback, as I just said in the report backstage is that it's realistically true. You can pretty much go naked with just a weapon and be fine.
Whether he wants to turn up the difficulty or whatever is up to him. Please stop publically discussing moderation and things that aren't really about the topic. If you have an issue, PM me about it, like the rules indicate.
For me the rewards of TL2 were fun at first but then it sort of teetered off. I liked seeing a lot of blues and greens and yellow items but I kept looting more and more that just felt bland. I'm not saying D3 doesn't suffer from bad drops but I wouldn't say they're "bland". What I mean is a lot of what you loot especially armor wise is + some elemental resist and maybe a attribute or two here and there. I was hoping that a big difference in TL2 and D3 would be that TL2 drops felt more exciting, and yeah the yellows do for the most part but the blues and greens were pretty underwhelming, I didn't feel like I was getting any real upgrade from them most of the time. Weapons obviously are a bit different their damage increase can sometimes be a lot more noticeable.
I wanted the feeling of items from D2 being in TL2 but aside from the yellows it's not really there.
If you don't use the AH in D3 though, yeah I can see how TL2 would feel more rewarding because you do find yellows quite often and occasionally blues and greens that are worth while. In D3 I've rarely looted a yellow and thought "this is awesome" but I at least had that feeling of "this is a good upgrade". It only feels "awesome" and "rewarding" when I find a legendary.
Anyways I think they're both pretty different games. There is not really a whole lot about them that is similar. D3 is online only, the classes and skills and item drops are all being constantly tuned and balanced. TL2 is offline, you can cheat if you want, you can play with friends, a lot of the skills are sort of overpowered but it's not a big deal because it doesn't really affect anyone. Aside from the UI and general dungeon crawler theme there isn't much of a similarity there.
I think it will be really interesting to see the mods that come out for TL2 and it's probably worth 20$ just based on general play (especially if you have friends to play with) and the replay value that mods usually offer.
Seeing how much work is still going into D3 though and knowing more to come I don't feel at all remorseful spending 60$ for the hundreds of hours I put into D3 either.
Excited to see what's in the future of both games.
