    This has already been disproven a couple times. He isn't tapped for Diablo, from Blizzard, it's a show with the word Diablo in it.

    No one doubts about D2 HD at this point - this is coming. The big question is D4. Our best indication about it will be the Blizzcon schedule, which usually releases in early October, so roughly a month from now.


    If Diablo does NOT open the Blizzcon ceremony we'll get D2 HD and some D3 stuff probably. Chance for D4 announce is very slim.


    If Diablo opens Blizzcon ceremony we get D4 reveal 100%. D2 HD will follow it and probably no D3 stuff besides Themes talks.

    I invite you to watch David Breviks' interview on the subject of a D2 remaster, and the absolutely colossal amount of work it would take. The chances of a D2 remaster are so incredibly slim simply because they would have to re create the entire game from scratch.


    Hopefully something about D4 at Blizzcon, except that they just launched D3 on Switch. And yes, that DOES play into when they'll announce D4. There's a reason why they haven't actually confirmed anything at all yet - they want more sales. And if they think announcing a D4 at Blizzcon will hurt switch sales, they'll absolutely hold off.

    posted a message on D4 classes

    One of the absolute biggest reasons why a lot of people consider D3 a failure is because they decided to take everything from Diablo 2, and do the reverse. And the classes weren't spared. I mean hell, they originally wanted D3's Barbarian to be a, uh, idk I forget the name but it was along the lines of a Savage or something, before they realized it was so obviously the barb they had to change his name back. And how many of you would have liked to just see the Nerco in the first place, instead of the Witch Doctor?


    Diablo 4 would need to, in my opinion, go back to their main classes at least; Nerco, Amazon, Barbarian, Paladin, Sorceress. However, like I've said before, Blizzard has a lot of work ahead of them. They can't release an empty game like they did with D3, and plan to add in actual end-game later. There would need to be more classes as well, and I'd personally pick at least the Druid, and I've love to see the Sin again. But I also think the Monk is unique enough to still fit alongside the rest. Essentially my vote is for the D2 LoD roster as a bare minimum.

    Unquestionably. I get tired of the "Diablo is dead" trolls when they cannot take the time and look and see for themselves that something is clearly in the pipeline...
    https://careers.blizzard.com/en-us/openings/oDSe5fwy


    And I get tired when people's only defense is calling others a troll, while they themselves don't reply with anything of substance.
    Diablo 3 is absolutely dead, and considering it's the latest game, it's fair to say that right now, Diablo is dead. Hopefully if there's a D4 it gets revived.
    A lot of the frustration that you see from me and others, is with Blizzard themselves. From the outside looking in, they've turned far too corporate. Years and years ago, they were able to get away with not giving any information, and taking an agonizingly long time with everything they did. That time is over now, and not only do the players know that, MANY of their key people do as well, hence why we keep seeing top management jumping ship. And not even jumping ship in the sense of going straight over to another company, they start there own!
    If Blizzard IS working on something else, they need to speak up. It's borderline insulting to not JUST get nothing in terms of news, but to have to deduce it ourselves such as Blizzcon, again, not having anything Diablo related. And while I'm not yet close to 50 as Ulthrakk is, I can say I feel the same way; Blizzard needs to accelerate.
    And @ LTR; I only said I wouldn't really be excited at D4 news as a defense mechanism, because I most likely know how it'l go down;
    *D4 is (hopefully) announced
    *D4 releases around... 2020. Maybe.
    *D4 has extremely limited content, with the promise of an expansion down the road.
    *The first expansion comes out in... 2022. Maybe.
    *And Blizzard has learned nothing from their giant pendulum swing of D3, and D4's endgame consists of timed (!) rift style content that doesn't have any real loot hunt in it, because you're giving all your loot at the start of the [email protected]#$ing season... which of course it won't launch with seasons, that'l be another feature added a year later.
    I WANT to be excited, but it's like Blizzard has grown far too gigantic for their own good. One move takes a million parts to turn, and they're so scared of making a mistake they instead do nothing, which is worse.
    Rant over. I'll probably check this site again in a week when I'm bored, and the top 4 threads will still have a reply from a week ago on the front page.


    *quick edit*; DiabloFans, your forum post editor is complete garbage.

    I also come back once in a great while to see if anything is stirring.


    I'm willing to bet there's never going to be another actual meaningful update to Diablo 3 again. Of course I hope I'm wrong, but the writing's on the wall man.


    Literally all it takes is to look at Path of Exile, and you know that D3 lost, a long time ago. It it absolutely MINDBLOWING how GGG from PoE can not only continue to deliver NEW content every couple of months, but how they are actually willing to change / add / tweak existing content right after it's release. When's the last time you've seen something from Blizzard that was borked, and they changed it quick? Blizzard has drowned themselves in too much red tape. Look how long it took to get the Necro.


    Hell, at this point if Blizzard DID do a Diablo 4 reveal, there's no way I could get excited. It would release with minimal content, and it would take YEARS to get more.


    Poe is better here, Poe is better there,...
    Yet u are on a Diablo forum.
    Did you forget to read the first sentence in my post?
    Either way, yes I still check here once in awhile. I DID spend a couple thousand hours on Diablo 3 since closed beta after all. But yes, PoE is better. Diablo 3 is bad and Blizzard should feel bad.

    Quote from Ravendarke»

    Yes it is and you would know that if you would have at least basic understanding of how applications as Diablo works and what is required to push any client side patch on project of this scale, sadly, you don't, yet you talk and call something "half-assed" which is funny from guy with zero live achievement and zero knowledge on given topic.

    Calm down buddy.
    This pack IS half assed. It went live with many bugs that were known for days / weeks while on the PTR.
    And on the topic of a hotfix; It would be very easy for Blizzard to push out a client side patch / hotfix when they wanted. However, they seem to have some strange personal rules on when they push out patches. They're probably scared they'll confuse the players, since it wouldn't pass the 'grandma test', ya know?

    posted a message on D3 duration and price

    Path of exile is absolutely better than Diablo 3 in every single area that counts.


    To your question OP; Yes, D3 is finish the campaign, then do nearly the exact same content while slightly upping the difficulty by a few % (greater rifts).


    Actually, if you want a quick rundown;

    Farm one area until level 70 with massacre bonuses.

    Craft armor and weapons because who needs to rely on item drops in an ARPG.

    Immediately skip a couple of the 17 difficulties and put it on T1 because then sets can drop.

    Now stand in town and do regular rifts or bounties.


    Spend a couple hours at most doing the Season Journey and then get handed your 6p set.

    Upgrade rare weapons that you craft and get your sets' mandatory unique weapon.

    Now skip even more difficulty levels and move on to T6.

    Now do greater rifts until you run out of stones, then do regular rifts.


    And now, because a game that's supposed to be around hunting loot instead just hands you everything, the only thing of worth is trying for leaderboards. So get ready to use 1 set for your class that's far better than the others, and have no choice in items because there's multiple mandatory legendaries that your set requires.


    But don't worry, having all the items drop all the time just means you get to hunt for the same pieces with just slightly higher stats!

    posted a message on What new primal ancients actually are (and why that is nothing)

    Blizzard is too afraid to make actual items (not versions of the same item) super rare again. Therefore we get ancients, and primals. Can't wait to farm the exact same item 100 times hoping the stats are higher.


    Just the mere idea that we can't have super rare, hard to find items again like in D2 BECAUSE a small amount of people will whine that they can't find it during a season is depressing.


    I don't think we'll ever get an actual Diablo game again. It'l be this same arcade 'rare'-items-rain-down crap over and over.


    Anyway, yea OP you're correct.
