    posted a message on Magic Find Gear Swapping and RMAH Commodities Coming Soon, Gold Not Included Initially
    Quote from maka

    This is all just because some people are so anal that they do the stupidest things just to get an edge, like swapping gear mid-fight. If you wanna stack MF, do it like normal people, and take the drawbacks that come with it (more MF = less DPS/survivability). Gear-swapping is just people wanting to have their cake and eat it too. It's unacceptable, to me.
    There is a pretty decent solution that nobody's mentioned yet (or at least I haven't seen it). Remove the possibility of item swapping during boss fights. I know it doesn't prevent people swapping during fights with elite packs, but it's a start.
    I would also like them to bring back charms in some form or another. Just don't make them take up inventory space, that was horrible. Create a dedicated inv space just for them or something.

    Quote from Zakaz

    Again, your way of playing absolutely does influence my way of playing - it affects the economy, which impacts my time requirement to achieve specific levels of gear or progression, which affects my choice in how I play the game. Stop pretending like your experience is the only experience, ok?
    Was gonna write this but you hit the nail on the head. People don't play in a vacuum, what others do still affects everyone else, via the AH, for example.

    I tend to be agree more with what you're saying. It's hard fight Blizzard is trying to win here. All there options are horrid fixes, that only add in further time delays or "punishments"

    To further your idea, and really the only idea that MF will work as intended (via Blizzards point of view) without Nerfing the crap out of it would be either one of the following two options:

    A.) Have the game client check MF% of character (group) on first hit of mob, and last hit of mob. Take value that is lower (non-swapped gear MF% value) use that for actual MF%

    B.) Build in an "In-Combat" and "Out-of-Combat" system. Blizzard has stated Diablo 3 does NOT have this, it is an open world. This would be the much trickier option, but would other good things as making it much easier to give us dueling.

    These are really the only two options they have, if they don't want to touch MF in anyway, keep it working the same, but stop the swapping out right.

    posted a message on Is diablofans or anyone else setting up a big teamspeak or ventrilo server for D3?
    Quote from AFd3

    I would be interested in using a community D3 voip server. A huge server for people to get together an essentially play and trade on. I'd be down to help pay for the thing if someone is pooling money for a big server. I'm sure there are clans/communities doing this I just don't know of any. It could be a lot of money but if people who are serious about this like me put 5-10$ in a pool I don't think it would be hard to collect a years cost of running the server (60-30 people with respective donations could pay for a 200 person server). I think it would be cool to play with some of you guys and be able to talk with you. It would also make a sweet diablofans trading post. Good or bad idea?

    We at Diablo Expressions already have this very thing! It is free to use and will be used for a lot of things in-game and non-game. We want to get as many possible people in it to use and come together, from all different communities and fansites to make the D# gamers stronger as a whole. got a few, but looking to have 100-200 people by/at game release : D

    All you need to do to full access the vent channels is get together with an admin and make avent account, but there are public channels that will be expanded shortly.

    Quote from DDodds

    More and more i just dont trust this Jay Wilson. Reminds me of the politicians, always talking never progressing.
    I felt the same exact way. Saying the release date is nearing, without us knowing what that release date ACTUALLY is, that's saying the release date is "soon", which is what it is; not nearing because there's no date to gauge by!

    posted a message on System Changes
    Quote from Harmonica39

    Quote from Drkclone

    Am I the only one fearing that we will hear soon "Mid 2012"? I like how they are showing changes they have made/are making but a lot of this I feel could of waited till after release or an expansion.

    how could they waited to make those changes? these are CORE changes which directly influence the gameplay

    Not a flame, more of just mild fustration at this "development"

    How could they waited till now to make these changes? These are core changes to a game thats been in Cloased Beta for a solid 4 months, friends and family alpha for 1-2 months before that? Been teasing us along for months now saying game is "good for release" but appaerently not? Most of all, annouce the game nearly 4 years ago?!

    This was meant to be a anger release in general, not flame : D

    posted a message on Jay Wilson's Article Will be Going Up Tomorrow
    I had a whole essay in my head I could write here (which I would half enjoy to do), but it all boils down to these two simple things to anybody who just wants to play the game, and is a Diablo fan:

    1) Blizzard seems to have a bad case of multiple personality disorder with Diablo 3 from "pushing" Beta to the end of the "Q3", shady start of Closed Better vs Press Closed Beta, NDA press mess, saying game is "Technically" ready for release but go weeks without official word, now we know of an article but takes two weeks to get it and it's not a release date, which means it could just say "Polish on, polish off!" Much love Mr. Miyagi.

    2) THIS ARTICLE WAS DOOMED FROM THE START if it did not contain a release date for a vast majority of the Community. NOT to say the information we get (if it has a healthy amount of updates on artisans, rune system, finalizing of classes and abilities and most important still on track for "Q1" release) is bad, but if we get the rune system, if we get a high cap or any other thing that we most likely WON'T get in Beta; at this point it's just "red meat" to the fans with out anything behind it.

    Remember, even if they did add more to the Beta (which should throw up red flags!) only people in Beta would be able to test these things out...a still seeming small trickle of water compared to the water behind the dam pushing out!

    At least with a release date, in my own opinion and how I feel about it, a release date does NOT make me certain that Blizzard will have the game out, BUT a sign of CONFIDENCE in their ability to get the game out...with out the release date I can't have CONFIDENCE in Blizzard, nor any information they may put out and finalizing of the game till we get a release date because until then, there giving themselves time to play around with systems and other game elements. A release date means there're all said in stone with a race to print the CDs.

    Simple as that as far as my feelings go!

    Hello all,

    Here are the last of our big contests for now. Good Luck!

    "The Final Archive Page for the 'Book of Cain' "

    Contest outline:

    -This contest is going to be an inverted Caption Contest.
    -I will provide you with a quote that MUST be used!
    -You will need to dig through the vast internet for any material from Diablo 3 and work in the quote.
    -You can alter the material OR not, it's up to you.

    The quote that MUST be worked into every entry is,

    " Hello, my friend. Stay awhile and listen..."

    The second contest:

    "Make Your Expression Known!"

    This is our last Beta Key contest (maybe, for now). This one is just as simple as our last one.

    To enter, all you have to do is "Like" our Facebook page. That's it!

    I will random number a person from the combined Facebook "likers" with the pool of valid Twitter followers from the last contest (your promised advantaged, one free entry!)
