    posted a message on Video Game "Chat" systems in the news media

    https://www.npr.org/2018/11/05/660642531/right-wing-hate-groups-are-recruiting-video-gamers


    I know video games tend to generate a lot of sensationalist coverage at times,but I also know that the gaming community is as diverse as any other, and there are portions where groups could easily utilize the community built around the game for recruitment. I won't climb too high on my soapbox-as a gamer who has three teenagers who also play a variety of games I hope to not only provide a nominally safe environment, where my kids and really anyone, can enjoy the game. I know nothing is ever perfect, and that like anything in life it evolves constantly.


    But I thought this might garner some interest, and or some discussion.

    I won't be playing this, but I hope some of the more encouraging comments about it prove to be true. I have no interest in mobile games, but if anything brings "them" closer to making a game as entertaining as Diablo 3 has been for me I'm all for it.


    I'm not hip enough on the various ins and outs,so back to playing for me.


    let me ask you a serious question: how are you playing your games? would you mind to play on a phone / tablet for an extended period of time? would you pull an allnighter if a new diablo has addictive gameplay? do you have mobile hardware for diablo? and, if you play and like it very much and you spend money on it, would you hope that blizzard uses that money to fuel the next pc version of diablo or further their mobile gaming?

    I only play on PC. I don't personally enjoy using my phone for games. I don't own a tablet, and really I am not interested in buying a new system. I don't know what mobile hardware is available, but I don't utilize any of it. (That's a less a testament to its quality, and more own personal preference. It could be amazing, it's just not my thing.)


    I don't mind if Blizzard tries for a mobile audience, I just won't be a part of that audience. I hope they're successful, because the rising tide raises all ships right? I consider myself a pretty casual gamer-I'll always be the last guy to get a copy, I'll probably play it until way too late-but for me it's pretty unlikely to be on a phone, or mobile device.

    posted a message on S15: Just bad RNG or?

    I don't know if it's just bad luck on my part, or maybe I'm a bit spoiled and I became hyper-focused on drops, but season 15 has been rough. Seems like until I craft it I can't get it as a drop. I just completed the season journey, and I think I've improved over previous seasons-but man this one sure felt lite on the drop rate.


    Of course with double the cache I was able to craft pretty readily, so perhaps that was the point. Still had fun-for a game I picked up sometime ago I've more than got my money's worth.

    posted a message on Maximum two players in public games!

    I'm not sure if English is your primary language, but if I understand you correctly then simply playing in invitation only games, or utilizing invites should cover this. Although I wouldn't oppose limiting players in a game, or expanding them.

    posted a message on Do you guys think that the barbarian should have whirlwind as a primary in D4?

    Stand up, back away from your computer. Now spin in circles and move fifty feet at the same time you smash everything in your living room or office.


    Can't do it gracefully?


    That's why it's magic!

    posted a message on Help Request: Season Achievment

    Forgive me if I am not in the correct sub forum, but I am drawing up short on my season achievement which would unlock a stash space. I need to finish one more conquest but I seem to keep coming up short.


    I'd be willing take any reasonable advice and or welcome any help I can get!


    Thanks in advance!
