    sure, they aren't a charity. but you can't tell me, that the whole workforce is working on an expansion / successor while only a handful of 2d artists and some programmers resemble a skeleton crew for the new "content" we got.


    and yeah, i may sound like a spoiled brat demanding content. but blizzard killed the only source of income with the RMAH and didn't come up with another revenue stream, therefore nobody will be paid to generate content. reintroducing scrapped areas / enemies is not enough content.

    posted a message on What will happen at Blizzcon?

    most optimistic i could think of:


    - announcement of the second expansion

    - panels for revamped game mechanics

    - d2 hd as a gimmick in the future



    most pessimistic i could think of:


    - announcement of the next "big" patch with a new set for each class (which means that you are crap right until you unlock the third bonus, at which point you begin to utterly destroy everything. like it was the last few years in d3.), a few new enemies and a scrapped zone

    - minor revamps to quell the loudest negative voices

    - cross promotions with the other games because of 20 years diablo

    - general ignorance of the fact that the franchise turns 20



    most realistic i could think of:


    - announcement and talk about the immediate future in patches and maybe a hint at an expansion

    - d2 touch-up to natively support bigger resolutions and modern operating systems

    - some celebrations for the franchise, a long look at the history of the games and lots of artwork and anecdotes



    we have to face one thing. yes, diablo as a franchise turns 20. and diablo 3 is still a moneymaker in the eyes of blizzard. do you kill your cash cow for another successor after the last eagerly awaited successor wasn't met with as much joy as you'd like? no. they will "maintain" the game with a new season every three months, where they up the playey power again and add a few cosmetics. that will go on for this year and maybe 2017 and after that we can hope for something fresh.

    posted a message on Diablo III - 20th Anniversary Items in WoW

    As I was visiting London the last few days, the 7.1 ptr for wow came up on the 14th. and with it three items:


    On the 15th, it was made official that diablo would be an ingame pet for attendees of the BlizzCon:

    Since we get almost no real news about this game, I thought that I would read everything about it here. But nothing. No one did a news or a topic. Why? It is the atleast something to speculate about for BlizzCon. Or did I miss that in another thread?

    it is just something from the 20 years spanning history of diablo. maybe it was intended. maybe not.


    we celebrate a very, very akward anniversary here. with the abandoned child of no longer loving or caring parents.

    posted a message on Diablo IV: Who is going to GamesCom?

    i'd really like a 2.5 mini-expansion patch, laying some groundwork for x2 and patch 3.0.

    a bit of content map-wise, revamps to existing systems and addition of new systems and COMMUNICATION. after maybe nine to twelve months the release of x2 and the franchise is saved if the expansion is good.

    but we need changes. something. anything. QoL changes for example. something like transmog for d3 and wow did wonders to do something other than just romping through rifts. jeez, do something with the interface. incorporate elements from turbo hud or something. get creative! d3 looks and feels the same it did back when they released vanilla.

    posted a message on Would you play season 7 (or any season) if no stash tab given?

    i will play the whole journey in season 7 like i did in the previous seasons. i will try to stick to barb like i did in the previous seasons and end up with another wizard, dh etc. like in the previous seasons.

    i will reach about 300-500 paragon like in the previous seasons and let droves of items expire in the mail because diablo 3 has the worst item management. like in the previous seasons.

    this season-thingy prolongs the life lease of this game and you all know it. i like the style and atmosphere of the game, but in the end it didn't really change much from the first days. sure, someone will pop up and say "but RoS happened with another act and rifts and grifts and seasons and so on!!1". but the classes never really changed. or the gameplay. there are tweaks here and there, you use the newest cookie cutter builds (which are already ready to implement once the patch comes off the ptr) and in the end you just do the same like you did 2012.

    i really hope they mix things up with another expansion or diablo 4. otherwise i will see myself in the season 56 treadmill doing the same stuff i did 2012.

    posted a message on Josh Mosqueira leaves blizzard

    i don't think anybody can predict anymore what will happen to this game at this point. we have to wait and see.

    would still be nice if blizzard would honor this great, old franchise with something solid. and if they have to bring a 4 instead of something new to the 3 and admit defeat, then may it be so.

    games like diablo and players like those in the diablo franchise are in for the long haul.


    when you had nothing to do in d2, you went and made crazy character specs or iron man challenges. also due to lack of content. but that was okay at that time, nobody knew better or expected more. you had your bag of stones and boy was it great.


    nowadays you have less spare time because you grew older, you need to invest your time more clever. do you want the same old treatment like in d2 or do you want communication with base-connected devs, regular but small contentlets (if that term flies, it is mine!) an the occasional addon?

    Quote from Shapookya»

    It's sad how the community reacts to ONE smaller patch. Suddenly the game is dying or dead and it's disappointing and boring because the game didn't change so much with a patch.

    This community doesn't deserve this game...

    i know you really like the game and often defend it much. i, too, like it and have put many hours into it. my s6 journey is done for since a few weeks ago and i can't bring myself to clear the mails from s5. if they are still there.

    but this game plays exactly like it did in 2012 and 2014 respectively, which is neither bad nor good. to be able to jump into the fray after a year of abstinence also means that nothing really groundbreaking happened. and it didn't. sure, sure, rifts / greater rifts and killquest bucket lists began to form the current endgame and they killed the last sense of immersion with their implementation. other than that, this game didn't came a long way and it seems as if it doesn't go anywhere soon.

    Quote from PsykStrike»

    How about...

    Goblin spawn rate increased.

    Goblin HP increased.

    Goblin teleport and move speed increased.

    Goblins now steal YOUR loot.

    Goblins laugh maniacally after successfully stealing your loot.


    And of course, just to really rub it in... legendary drop rate increased.

    i know what you aim for but they are limiting themselves with this season thingy. sure, don't mess up the leaderboards with some buffs, we get it. but maybe try to acknowledge that you maybe care about this game and the future of it.
    then again, that season 4 / era 5 debacle shows us that messing around isn't that far away.

    hey everyone.


    apparently diablo 3 turned four years on may 15th. no news, no thread? there was a blue post ( http://www.diablofans.com/blizz-tracker/topic/62374-happy-birthday-diablo-iii ), but nothing else like an event or something.


    why the radio silence about this birthday?
