Nov 11, 2013Sabvre posted a message on Travis Day on "Legendaries/set items being soulbound"I don't understand you people....Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Blizzard just gave us:
Character permanence - you can't just flip item builds at the drop of a hat.
Unique characters - FOTM item builds will be less frequent.
No hacks/bots/third party sites
Chance of balanced PVP - there can be assumed strength progression based on time played vs statistical chances and std deviation.
Defined character progression - you can't just stack your little brother/ neighbor on their first day playing.
Additional reason to party up - 4 friends playing together is 4x the drops.
Yet you guys still whine and bitch. You guys will never be happy with this game.... if blizzard changed this to an exact D2 clone, people would scream about all the problems that were part of D2....

What the fuck does it matter?
There are still approximately 3 million people playing D3. Are you honestly trying to say that 3-4000 nerdraging douchebags on Amazon and Metacritic outweigh 3 MILLION people who are still playing?
Where is the 3 million, show me the graph. And if it's really 3 million(although I LOL at that you actually believe that), There was like 10 million copies sold. So, the game lost 7 million. Isn't that your simpleton logic? And add to that the bots and chinese gold farmers who probably are more than 50% of that base.

Okay, no proof, no numbers. That's all I needed to know, kthanxbai
Here is your Diablo 3 numbers on amazon.
Apr 8, 2013So, are you implying that all those people that played Diablo 2 were unemployed, lazy fat neckbeards that just played video games day and night?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Are you just trying to wittily justify the simplicity of Diablo 3 as to say that it doesn't need depth or any real challenge since it geared towards people with 5 jobs, a wife and 10 children?

Kripp was a fan of Diablo 2. He still has that game installed. Athene even mentioned that in one of his videos like a year before release of D3. And Force.... you know yourself.
Facts, not the opinions of a couple of douchebags. Charts or it didn't happen, buddy.
Charts that kripp played Diablo II 6 years ago? Lol.
He has spoken of Diablo 2 and it's varied build possibilities like millions of times in his videos. How would a person that never played the game be able to do that? Common sense, USE IT. You actually think that Kripp never played Diablo 2?
Um, no, LOL.
Charts that a lot of people who quit D3 had played D2. As you claimed in your second post.
Common sense, USE IT.
You're asking for something that is just realistically implausible. Besides, you don't even need charts. Just look at the feedback. And sure, some of it might be rage trolls etc. But you could say the same about "10/10" posts as being raging fanboys. But, fact remains that the majority, the OVERWHELMING majority of users give it less than "5/10". You're going to call all those people trolls? You sound like you're in denial. I was a HUGE fan of Diablo franchise and blizzard fucking RUINED it.
Apr 8, 2013Just for the record, I'm all for this discussion as long as it doesn't become a flame/troll fest. Bear that in mind, and keep an open mind to new ideas. Attack these ideas, not the people defending them That goes for both sides of the discussion.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I haven't watched the videos yet, but I have a strong bias against these sort of "elitist" players and tend to heavily agree with Bagstone. Neither of them invented the wheel, they both got solid ideas from forums (strong affixes like LoH, builds, paths, etc.) and made a name out of it.
People seem to think these are awesome guys and that they have insane game knowledge when they usually just have tons of free dedicated time (so they're obviously going to be top-end and insanely powerful players) and some more free time to check forums/youtube/streams for good ideas while they're at it.
Also, I can't bear to see these people behaving like they're the most important players of the fanbase (hint: they aren't) and the rest is crap, and all changes should be made to fit their own playstyle. All they want is "moar end-game, moar challenges. moar difficult things that nobody can do without putting 5k hours into it so I can prove that I'm oh-so-good".
Kripparian in particular seems to be quite bad at anything that's even remotely competitive that doesn't involve putting in 5k hours for the guaranteed advantage. I've checked him stream a couple times while PvPing on PoE, and even on a game that's he's supposedly so good, he seems to get stomped around by other people "using OP stuff". If he wants so desperately to prove he's so good and hardcore at games, why not play something like DotA 2, LoL or SC2, where your opponents actually have brains, instead of being just random codes.
People like Kripparian, Athene and Force wanted an "end-game grind" so badly in order to "have a reason to play", and then proceeded to never enjoy it. They want "customization systems" so badly but don't try multiple characters or inventing new builds. IIRC Force went as far as saying "I don't enjoy the game anymore because I used the RMAH", I can't even begin to understand that. I honestly find that sort of attitude weird and quite ignorant.
As far as the PoE vs D3 debate goes: I see D3 as a heavy-action focused game with pretty decent combat (good positioning, proper management of cooldowns, very fluid) and "weaker", simplified (debatable, though) RPG elements; and PoE as a more heavy-RPG (elements) focused game, with a lot less focus on "combat management".
As soon as people who dislike D3 for those design-choices realize that they're just that, design choices that don't fit their personal playstyle (aka a very complex RPG system with very traditional RPG elements), the sooner they're going to be at peace with themselves. Same goes for those who dislike PoE. People need to learn what diversity and preference really mean - as there's no such thing as "better" in such a world.
Aug 31, 2012Honestly what's the point of playing a DH now the tank build and trail of cinder are dead? When I see those wiz tanking A3 or doing 80k dps while not being one shotted by anything and their moms or those monks barbs tanking dozens of mobs, I'm just left wondering, what does my DH do that they don't. Oh yeah I can get a nat set and spam gloom endlessly but since farmers took over AH there's no way I'm spending IRL money for this.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
Aug 1, 2012I'm glad for most of the improvements/differences between D3 and D2.....except for the poor, underwhelming itemization. Good news is that this can be fixed and as someone mentioned earlier, Blizz is well known for building upon the initial release and doing plenty of tinkering.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
More than anything I'm bummed as shit that me and my friends can't spend some time trying to murder each other in duels. This missing piece will likely cause me to lose interest soon. Arena PvP is always unbalanced and I don't care for it. There is no good reason why there isn't a mutual hostel feature.
This could be the end-game for now to keep people playing and having fun, but the blind fools running the show seem to take issue with players going all willy-nilly and having some 1v1.
Love the game and it's potential for the most part, but I'm terribly furious about the lack of 1v1 dueling and flat itemization.
Jul 17, 2012This thread is just what I needed today - a huge laugh.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
You want a refund, but want to keep your progress, too? You also want Blizzard to answer questions of the future like they have a magical crystal ball?
Can we get a refund on the oxygen you're breathing?
