So, a lot of these posts are focusing on leader boards, and comparing grift stats, and all of the sort of faff that makes me feel like my life has become exactly as terribly sad as my full chest with every DH set seems to indicate it is. I like the idea of D3 being more competitive, but leader boards just aren't satisfying, especially when compared to, say, the visceral joy of wrecking your friend's day by reducing them to a pile of red goo.
Honestly, I think some variation on the existent PvP to make it more than a match of "who can press the button fastest to get the first insta kill" would vastly improve D3 in terms of competitiveness. Perhaps have PvP focused gear, or directly change the stats so that defense exists (and considering it's still possible to insta kill a fully decked out barb or crusader as a dh with a well placed impale, defense buffs would be needed).
Just saying, I don't care about leader boards (scandal, I know). If I want to compete, I want the satisfaction of carving up little bits of my opponent, and serving it to them.
