    We have no idea how the match making system will work in D3 otherthan it will better than D2. But even in D2, you could put level restrictions if you wanted to to stop high levels from coming in to MF.

    Level restrictions dont really work. Especially in end-game because the mf'ers will be the same level range as the main group. Perhaps some sort of region/area restriction rather than a level restriction. Maybe the game can be limited to a +- 2 areas away from the game creator? Just throwing an idea out there.

    We have no idea about how MF (or whatever system they end up going with) stuff will work in D3 so really no reason to think about those problems yet. People just assume that because it's in D2 it'll be in D3. Just sayin'



    Regarding OP's point 10:
    Now seriously I don't get you. How can say that you think that the change to the inventory from D2->D3 is a change for the better YET still, that change causes you to worry about D3's originality. I mean what is needed to please you? If they didn't change the inventory that'd be damn stupid since the way it works in D2 just isn't, imho, a very smart one. Sure it has its own charm and it's "original" (you really overuse this word btw.. Original does not equal good. Unoriginal does not equal bad) having to work around the tetris constriction to make it work, but it's only cool in the same way that you could only fire in three direction in the first Metroid game - to draw a parallel.

    You complain about Diablo being changed as it's something unoriginal. If they decided to keep the tetrisinventory from D2, isn't that the same thing really? Copypaste from D2! OMG HOW UNORIGINAL (and bad!!). I guess you'll just have to bite the sour apple and accept that some systems just work good, even if they aren't the newest thing to the market.

    Point 11:
    Yes, a hot topic indeed. I'm as you kinda 50-50 on this point. I think Blizzard will give us lot of customization options through other means, and they have their reasons to make stats allocation static, but I think they could do without this. Or maybe they could try something half-half; some stats get allocated automatically and some you get to choose yourself. I would have to see how it feels in the game though.

    Welcome :thumbsup:!

    I, as well, look forward to seeing your writings. What kind of books are you into?

    And regarding the username, if you registered via Curse there is a chance that your nick is only taken there but still available here on this forum. Try going to your settings and use the Change Display Name-feature. It worked for me!

    Refreshing indeed to get some pictures! It's funny how this tiny picture is such a huge thing now, and when Blizzcon hits it'll be nothing. Blizzard really knows how to hype stuff up with minimal amount of "resources".

    Quote from Phrayed

    Has there been a picture of the Witch Doctor with boots or any sort of shoe like item on? I can only recall him bare foot.

    I wonder if boots all have an alternative image for him where they look like little ankle braclets/coverings/armor.

    Hm.. yea interesting point.. Could very well be that they will do that. If they are going for a bare foot witch doctor. It does seem a little bit strange though, even though it fits with the image of a with doctor it's not very practical. Maybe boots just isn't included in the set that they show off here.

    Ok, I no longer have any need to reply to the rest of the points since ScyberDragon filled me in completely :).

    posted a message on Imho I am worred about diablo 3.

    Point 1: I highly doubt anything in D3 is copypasted from WoW. Yes, models might be very similar, but that's not the same thing really.. I've seen undeads in robes in WoW - yea. But I've also seen walking skeletons in D2 before seeing them in WoW.. I don't think everything has to be "original" to be good. A cultist in a robe is a cultist in a robe, a zombie is a zombie.

    Point 2: That is such a minor thing I wouldn't be worried about.. Sure they made a mistake thinking that we would want it to be unified with wow, and that might ring some alarms that they are thinking too much about WoW, but they also show that they listen to the feedback from older Diablo-players. Which is a good thing :).

    Point 3: Firstly, that trailer is quite old, who knows what they have changed from there. Secondly.. it is not copy pasted. The only real "influence" from WoW is that they decided to go with an actionbar. Thirdly, you said it's better now. So what's the problem? It's stupid to do something original just for the sake of being original. Original /= good

    Point 4: On this part I'll agree with you considering the pictures we've seen. I think they'll work it out a little bit better in the end, and I'm not all that concerned about it, but I do agree they could make it a bit grittier.

    Point 5-9: I'll have to save those for later since I gotta go back to work :P.

    Welcome to hell, what was the name that was taken?

    It was liquorice, but while checking around in settings I found the display name changer and decided to try it and it seems that liquorice was only taken for curse (where I registered) so I'm now liquorice instead.

    Welcome, stay awhile and listen (and post).

    What's with all of the people from Sweden?

    Thanks, I will! :o I dunno, don't blame me!

    Quote from Magistrate

    I sometimes like liquorice. I have to be in the mood. Great to have you with us :hammy:

    Why thank you! Hope you'll be in the mood for me often. :kitty:

    Hello everyone! I've been lurking this site now for too long and decided it's time to get busy.

    I'm very much looking forward to Diablo 3, as most of us. My Diablo career started out with D2 some many years ago and I played it a lot. Now Blizzcon 2010 is just around the corner and D3 creeps closer every day so probably will be lots to discuss and read about.

    Enough about games though, now for the important (?) part:
    I'm a 20 year old guy from Sweden. I (obviously) enjoy gaming and everything related to it. I live in Stockholm and work part time while studying web-programming and mainly playing games in my spare time.
    The nickname Kanzou is Japanese for liquorice, another common nick that I use, but unfortunately it was already taken so I went with this instead :). edit: info void, i got my usual nick!

    So this starts out my posting here. I look forward to get to know the community and slay some demons when D3 finally launches! :olddiablo:
