I am really excited as well, but I only think they are announcing 1 class and not 2.
Personally I think it is going to be the Amazon.
There isn't any, none of the new sets have set dungeons.
I am going to be a bit ahead of the problem that I already know my 4 man group will be facing once we hit about GR 115 - the massive lag spikes. Last season my group more or less called it quits at around GR 120 - it was unplayable.
We were running zmonk, zbarb, wd & sader.
Everyone discarded area dmg (except wd) on gear and paragon, didn't fix a thing.
We tried turning grafics all the way down, helped very little.
Are we missing something? We see other youtubers, people streaming on twitch etc (with the same comp) running high grs without any lag spikes at all.
Any suggestions, tips etc will be greatly appreciated!
Think it's hard to say who will be the final boss, as they are planning multiple expansions (lets see that before we believe it )
Diablo will be there at some point im sure.
I do think that Inarius is a very good bet - if not final, then at least a boos at some point.
I do expect to operate like a company (I never stated otherwise), in fact I wish more people would realize this.
I do however not think it is illogical to take their word for it when they say the game is a looong time away.
I personally don't think it is unreasonable to announce a game 3 prior to release, especially if you are blizzard.
If anything, this would mean that they are going back to their old standard of it's s ready when it's ready - and that would be awesome!
After reading the new quartly update I think we "might" see an alpha end of next year?
And a beta a year later. So my feelings/guesses tells me it will take 2\3 years before we see a public beta or release.
Especially when they said "not soon, not even blizzard soon" at the last Blizzcon.
The reason why im guessing it will take 2\3 years is because in the post you can read that they only finished like 1 zone\act? Let alone all the other maps, mobs, items etc etc.
You said this same thing in both threads and it clearly shows you didnt read the OP. haha. its in the first paragraph. Them saying that means nothing. They also mention multiple times how what theyve shown the pulic isnt close to what they have finished.
Dude, again, just because you wrote it in the OP does not make it the truth in anyway. You saying that it means nothing, does not mean that it means nothing. You cannot have a discussion about this if you keep claiming your own ideas to be the absolut truth - thats not how this works.
Again, I'll have to say, just because you belive it to be like this (classes are done etc), does not make it true. The only truth is that we don't know. Maybe you are right, I personally don't think so - but I think we have established that :-D
Crappy gameplay? If there is one thing most agree on when it comes to d3 it's that the gameplay is awesome, it's pretty much everything else that a lot of people have a problem with.
80% of what we will see a launch? What, how, why...?
The demo was set a level 20, not starter zone for starters.
Yes, we are still missing 40% of the classes, the talent system was anything but done, same goes for skills.
They haven't talked about endgame systems yet, which will be the big one.
I really can't wrap my head around how you could possibly think that everything is done by now, and add to that blizzard keep telling everyone that the game is in a very early stage.
I am not trying to put you down or be negative about the game. I am trying to be realistic about it.
Saying that it will release soon and blow everything away based on nothing but own expectations does not make it true. Hell, maybe poe 2 will completely destroy Diablo 4 is every aspect - we just don't know yet.
I think there is room and a fan base for both games. A lot of hardcore poe players will never be satisfied with Diablo and vice versa.
For me, there are just too many systems in poe, crafting is (for me) a nightmare and I can't even start to understand stats and gear, having said that, I have spent a lot of hours in poe and had fun, but it will never be my go to game.
Im sure that D4 has a big team behind it right now, but saying that the last 15% of the companies devs are working on WoW Classic, WoW BFA, WoW Shadowlands, WoW next expansion, D3, Overwatch (2), Hearthstone, hots + other unannounced projects is kinda ridiculous
So no, I dont think that true or accurate at all.
I also don't beleive that D4 is the only thing that can save Blizzard from certain doom - I don't beleive that Blizzard is in that kind of trouble at all
Where are you getting this info from (biggest dev team, rumored release schedule etc) - I would love to see it
They are all-in with Diablo 4. Right now more than 85% of their programmers work on that title. If Diablo 4 fails there will be no more Blizzard as we know it. This means two things:
- Their development on the game goes with great speed
- They'll try to release D4 as fast as possible to make up for lost profits from other games and failed projects
And Covid-19 while slowing down their development would increase their sales.
We are getting the D4 BETA after next Blizzcon for sure.
76,78% of all statistics are made up on the spot
I think we do need to know the endgame systems way before launch - asap imo, so we can provide feedback. Worst case senario (imo) is only 1 endgame system, like we have in D3 - thats what makes every season dull for me after about 2 weeks.
With D3 beta we did only get up to skeleton king in act 1 yes - that was to protect the story - mind you, advendture mode didn't come with launch - I would think (hope) they have learned from this come D4.
I expect a beta, detached from story mode, so we can propperly test systems, skills, modifiers etc.
In many ways, I hope Blizzard is taking some insperation from PoE - I dont mean to make every aspect of the game overly complicated, but there is alot to do in PoE, and that is (imo) the biggest downside of current D3.
Well said, couldn't agree more
Nobody has a problem with a mobile title, but has a problem with the announcement at blizzcon 2018. I more or less swore that I wouldn't touch it. After Diablo 4 was announced I have changed my mind though. Looking forward to seeing what it has to offer.
