I'd be one of those succubus-type flying demon ladies from Act V.
I'd spend my whole life doing ill deeds...only to be slain by some great hero, and cry out in ecstasy: "Aaaaahhhhh!"

Jul 14, 2008I'm so tired of keeping my mouth shut, I just thought I'd spew my nonsensical crap all over this forum for you to enjoy.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
You see, my problem is with the current art and gameplay direction of Diablo 2.
When I first played the game, my reaction was pure joy. As I got a little more time to move around in the environments, though, I began to notice some things that I really do not enjoy. I know we all love Blizzard very much, but they are human just like the rest of us, and they are bound to make mistakes too.
Listed below are some of my ideas that I think Blizzard should change while there is still a chance.
• The environments are too bright. Remember D1? Everything was black and red and brown? Go back to that. In fact, go back to that and DARKEN IT AGAIN. My character should be barely (if at all) visible, I shouldn't be able to know there are monsters around until I hear them beating their fists (or weapons, or talons) against my shields and armor.
• Gold doesn't take up enough space. I want to be so overwhelmed by my wealth that my inventory simply cannot hold it all. I want the town to glimmer with the piles of my gold that overflow from my pockets. For best effect, let's try one gold piece per inventory slot.
• Too many potions. In fact, let's get rid of potions altogether. If we want to regain health, we'd either have to drink the life force from the veins of our slain enemies, or hope there's a well nearby.
• Too cartoony. You may think it looks just like D1 but better graphically, but you are WRONG Blizzard. The fact remains that you're starting to make it look an awful lot like Warcraft 3. I want no respite from the burning demons of hell. Everything should look like something out of the deepest pits of my nightmares. From the smallest imps to the biggest boss, I want to shit my pants at least 50 times per hour while playing this game.
• Too many numbers. I don't want to have to whip out a calculator every time I play Diablo 2. Just let me guess how much chance-to-block or life-steal something has. It'll make the game more interesting and exciting.
• Too many terms to remember. I don't care about DoT, IAS, Stamina, Vitality, or any of that. Just have "Damage", "Health", "Mana", and "Experience".
• Too many skills. Really, who has the time to write down every possible skill set one character could come up with? Just have two skills that we pump up the whole game. One would be "hit", our normal attack, and the other would be "badass demon-killer", our mana-heavy skill that we would use to clear a room or just look cool.
In conclusion, if you could go ahead and take care of these things, I'm sure Diablo 2 will be a huge success. But if you don't do anything, I'm sure you'll alienate your whole fanbase and wont sell over 500,000 copies. And that's being generous.

Jul 11, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "cbr" »Which is a nice story for single play, but please check the message Blizzard gives you when you connect to Bnet, it says something like "online your gameplay experience can change".
Your reading comprehension needs work. The argument I responded to was that removing PK violates the story of the game. I pointed out that PvP in general doesn't even make any sense with respect to the storyline of the game.
This reminds me of the "homosexuality is bad because it's not natural" -> "but it does occur in nature" -> "don't argue it's okay just because it occurs in nature" line of argument. All I did was point out how silly it is to argue for griefing by pretending it's a part of the story of the game. That part was not an argument against griefing, just a refutation of his argument.
If all your goal is to beat hell baal and say you did it on Bnet, you're free to playing password games, basically online single player. As soon as you ask for social interaction be ready to accept both kinds, not only the positive, life isn't full of rainbows and flowers.
Perhaps it isn't for you? If you don't feel yourself in the argument perhaps it isn't addressed to you.
It's still irrelevant anyway. *shrugs*
Actually it's completely within his right to tell you what he thinks is real pvp. Perhaps it isn't the same for you, but that's an entirely different argument.
Sure he can tell me. But his decision on that subject is meaningless--PvP is defined as players fighting each other, period. There's no point in anyone adding their own invented distinctions to the term.
What he is saying is he doesn't want rules imposed to him, if there are rules it's only those he agreed to.
So, you're basically showing me exactly how he's a tremendous hypocrite?
Let's see, he doesn't want a rule imposed on him, only those he agreed to. And yet he's arguing in favor of a rule that WOULD be imposed on people who didn't want it, and would result in PvP combat they DIDN'T agree to. Interesting.
Maybe you ought to keep it to yourself the next time you want to 'defend' someone else--what you actually ended up doing was illustrating exactly how full of crap his stance is.
If he team duels it means he agreed to said rule, nobody imposed it on him.
So why is he entitled to having no unwanted rules imposed on him, but all the people who don't want to be griefed have to go to the back of the bus? Doesn't that seem a little arrogant to you?
It's a strawman since you're drawing relations to modern life, Diablo is in a medieval time at best, may I point you to human medieval history. Rules weren't quite the same as they are now.
Again, I will point out that using the story/setting of the game itself is nothing but poison to your own arguments; in the setting of Diablo 2, there would be practically no PvP whatsoever--the player characters are supposed to be heroes, remember? Their ultimate goal is to save Sanctuary, not rob other would-be heroes of their gold or lives.
Anti-pk people only have strawman arguments, sad but true.
Saying it doesn't make it so.
Distruptive to who? It's not distruptive to me, regardless if I'm the hunter or the hunted.
Unless you are sitting in a game WAITING for someone to show up to grief you (and if you're dong that, seriously, what's wrong with you?), it is disruptive. Whatever one was doing before the griefer came in and hostiled you becomes...wait for it...disrupted by their unprovoked attack.
What you claim as fact is actually an opinion. Try again.
Many is debatable also people dying of lag or other issues cause grief, doesn't mean we need to remove Hardcore.
1. Don't equivocate "grief". You know exactly what I mean by "griefing".
2. But Blizzard does try to ameliorate things like lag.
Just because it never occurred to you means nothing. It doesn't change anything. Some people don't like trading and it doesn't occur to them to go trade in trade games, should we remove trade?
That part wasn't an argument for/against anything, goofball. I was just stating something about myself there.
Jul 11, 2008This is like a debate between high school debate squad and university professors.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
It's Fun=Well then if I find hacking fun, you won't complain if I hack your account, delete your chars, and take all your items? I mean it's all for fun right?
Competitive= No, competitive is PvP. This is the Minnesota Vikings Professional vs. the south Minneapolis junior varsity girls badminton club. Get real, this is not competition, this is about skilless losers that the ONLY way they can kill someone is if there is enough of a level difference. Your arguments on this is sadly pathetic...you lose the whole argument right here. You want competition, go do Pvp or play a FPS game.
It's Part of Diablo= No, cooperative play was part and core of Diablo. It is the reason we have the party system, shared expereience, players that synergize. Also, if some of you newbies knew anything, you would have known they planned a while ago on changing the whole method of hostile. Only reason this was never patched was because the old team left, and the new team became bogged down having to re-write the whole game which took more time, and never allowed them to fully work on a new patch as they intended. By 2006 the idea was dropped because the plan then was to simply get D3 out and patch D2 only when necessary.
Even if this argument was bought, which it isn't, then this would indicated D2 to be a complete failure has the vast majority of players DO not participate in this.
Well Bill Roper...=Would this be the same people that designed a game so poorly, with so much imbalance and flaws that even to today it is a wreck of code? The same people that made a game so poorly that it took hackers almost NO effort to make their own items and bring them from single player into closed Battle.net. The same team that had the flawed logic that by selling of one of the rarest items would produce a nice cool event called Dclone, when in fact it takes a 5 year old 2 seconds to realize this merely gives MORE incentive to dupe. We could go on now couldn't we, but you all get the point, D2 was a mess of a design
Jul 11, 2008Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "cbr" »It is.
Those polls that were made here and at diii.net say different. You might want to check on them.
So if I say trade is distruptive to me, it should be removed?
Still causes grief.
It has if I say it's distruptive to me and it should be removed.
You fail to see the big picture. If the majority says something is disruptive... it is. I don't care how many polls are on diii.net, that's not this forum. For all I know they could all be PKs over there.
Email Blizzard and see if they will put a official poll on the main site. This arguing is going no where as usual.
