While I agree with the "meh" appreciation, v2.0 is just beyond worse.
Intent is to provide back the "Oh Shit!" feeling when something really good dropped, at the beginning of the game and in other Diablo games.
v2.0, as openly expressed by hundreds of people, gives no feeling of advancement at all
2-3 Greater rifts in a 2k char is too low, but it is something to aim for.
Power creep is not something to fear of. It would be better if they wanted to provide a new gameplay system, but you know they've had the runes option there since ever, and they just don't want to do it. So, if power creep is the only thing we can get, at least is better than nothing.
About botting, it's no longer the issue it once was. And it shouldn't be preventing players from receiving new stuff.
