    You are technically not wrong.

    It is the tournaments all day, but they are still apart of Blizzcon.

    posted a message on Diablo 4 Loot 3.0 Theorycrafting

    Crafting is neat, but maybe placing too much reliance on it as a gameplay system using mats from broken-down high quality gear is what really contributed to this. It required making sets/legendaries even more abysmally accessible, and not even to use them. It's like lots of gear was created not to be used as gear.


    It's almost like they should just have made it so the mats we break them down for are instead what the loot table would drop.

    I expect no less than 5 game reveals.







    I assume that includes expansions, yeah?


    WoW's next expansion, Overwatch 2, Diablo 4, D2 Remastered... and what else? A Hearthstone expansion?


    Quote from OdZoo»

    Also Blizzard has explicitly said they do not have any plans to remaster or -make Diablo 2.






    When did they say that? Do you have an actual source that quotes them somewhere? Because the only major quotes I've seen are from David Brevik:


    "I can say from a technical standpoint that it's going to be extremely difficult. That you will not be able to capture it exactly the way it was," original Diablo creator David Brevik said in a 2018 IGN interview. "The number one reason is because of the shape of the screen. Because the screens back then were 800x600 and largely square, and now they're not, they're 16:9 and 16:10, we did a lot of tricks."


    Even in this years Activision earnings call Bobby "give me your money" Kotick said:


    "At Activision we have seen great results from remastering some of these beloved games over the last couple of years. They are obviously having a big impact on our bottom line and a real impact there, but I'd say what's really important is that it's reaffirming the enduring nature of these franchises for us. We think there's a lot of IP in there the fans are going to want to experience again. So now what I'd say stay tuned for some future announcements."





    Naw, you're right, it will only be 4, unless they reveal Wc4 which would be freaking amazing.


    I was hoping for the SC FPS, but they split that team for OW2 and D4.




    Blizzard has just declared last blizzcon 2018 warcraft IV is not in project actually.



    Things change, after Blizzcon 2018, they now know that people want it, so it is probably one of the unannounced projects that was hired for this year.


    They are updating all the graphics for a reason.

    If that were the case, I doubt they would have anything to announce or reveal with a year's worth (at most) of work on it. They pulled D4's announcement last year for who-know's-what and it's been in development hell for like half a decade. I'm not saying it won't happen, but I'm cautious about thinking it would be announced this year.

    posted a message on Wait i'm confused thought diablofans shut down like 6 months or more ago?
    Quote from overrider»

    That's the official version. I think there is more than that. I think blizz needs all available advertising platforms to hype their stuff and the closing of diablofans was a big hit . They knew d4 and stuff is coming and I think and it's just my feeling that they had a part to play in reopening this site . There are a lot of people like me who don't surf the official diablo forums and instead use only dfans. It was unacceptable for this site to close when so much diablo is going to happen.

    More people use reddit and social media afaik. That's probably not the case. Fan sites don't really get the support like they used to--a lot of them have to claw for it. I'm glad it reopened, though.

    posted a message on How would you improve Diablo 3?
    Quote from Alessar»

    - Decrease legendary drops and make them feel more rare and unique.

    - Rework and balance item so that blue and yellow items can be viable at level 70 instead of being just a source for crafting materials.




    - Back with the pvp challenge mode from D2 or make those arenas available for players to have fun in.

    Strongly agree with these. The other bigger issue for me was definitely thematic, and I'm not just talking about the visual style. Vanilla D3 was very opposite of the message of the original series. I'm hoping what's-his-face is really bringing this back around, but I guess we'll see.


    It feels like even playing a fresh character you get into uniques and sets almost immediately. In 2, you sometimes had normal-quality stuff with gems through most of normal, with an odd runeword (lod) or set piece here or there if you knew what you were doing. I don't like feeling like a decked-out war god so quickly.


    They really should have gotten pvp arenas set up besides the one. I remember from BlizzCon or was it the WWI they showed off a couple with interesting LOS and traps and stuff and I was actually excited for that. Arenas would be perfect for Diablo.

    posted a message on Blizzard President about Diablo Immortal: “we’re happy with how it’s coming along”
    Quote from Aerisot»

    Honestly, I have nothing against Immortal, it was just unfortunately, wrong place, wrong time, very wrong question. (don't you have phones?)

    I don't really either, honestly. But the PR around it was wrong, and any fan could have told them it was going to turn out poorly. The best solution would have literally just been a slide that publicly said the sequel was currently in development with like a piece of art, followed by a "we don't have anything else to say right now but it's coming." It felt odd at best and wrong at worst, and I think it speaks to either losing touch with the fanbase or losing the authority to communicate effectively due to decisions higher up.


    I guess you're not saying any of that, but for discussion's sake I figured I'd say it :shrug:

    Quote from Zooheaded»

    They should have announced their progress on their other diablo titles instead of expecting people to eat their shit and love it for diablo immortal.


    I honestly assumed they weren't going to make this game anymore since I haven't heard a peep since it was announced.

    From what I vaguely remember from some random mutuals, they were planning on a D4 announcement within a couple weeks of the event but it got pulled for some reason. D4 being announced isn't even really a shocker, I'm pretty sure it was lowkey confirmed by implication shortly after the con last year.

    Quote from Foensh»

    What a load of BS...

    This corroborates a lot of developments over the last several years, as well as other independent statements over the last couple months. Anyone that didn't think they were working on 4 were pretty wonky in the head as the writing has been on the wall for some time. That's what made the fact it wasn't announced even more frustrating.

    posted a message on Diablo Immortal: What a MMOARPG should be IMHO
    Quote from Medievaldragon»

    Quote from vinnehehe»

    what a great word that is:

    mobile massive online action role playing game.


    I'm actually just left wondering what an MMO should look like. To me, Diablo in general is not an MMO.

    I think Massive multiplayer online is where a lot of people are online in the same game at the same time. (not just a 4 man group) so MO ARPG.


    so as to the mobile game, I'm taking a pass here for sure. I'm just sooo not interested in gaming on a mobile device. I'm not a die hard console or pc guy I play whichever suits me best for the specific game I want to play. (or which platform allows me to play it in general given pc is not high end)

    But mobile just doesn't suit me at all. It feels like a waste of time to me.


    I have a game in my Nvidia Shield Tablet -- I think it's named Trine 2 or something like that. Heck, that tablet has an Nvidia Steam-like platform to play many games. Never played them.

    TBH Trine is an amazing game. The original actually did remarkably well and is both simple and creative. It was fun 3-player coop on my ps3, never played it mobile though.

    I'm honestly probably not going to even play this game because it's not being made for me, but there's the usual caveats of it being in very early development. They don't even have the inventory system down yet.


    That said, what you show up there just looks like a mini-map from like a linear final fantasy title. Very disheartening. There's dialogue from the WoW team now and then, and other MMOs, about developing a true open world and just building a world designed to push players through sight-seeing tunnels. The latter is usually lacking in replayability.

    Thanks for putting all of that together. There's a ton of interesting stuff like this coming out recently, and going back for a while. It's hard to keep it all straight. (Seriously thank you. +1)


    On the domain level, at least for 3, I don't think it was finalized until like... very shortly before they were going to announce it. Weren't we given like 30 days or something? So, just because it's sitting in limbo doesn't mean it's not in the works, which tbh we all know is absolutely the case.
