Anyway, here's a quick summary of what was said (those are not their words)
64-bit explain a bit how it will improve our experience: Load times, Direct X-11, etc.
Paragon: No plans. Challenge Rift will be there to somewhat solve this issue.
Waste: Additional change soon on PTR
Necromancer --- What about Poison? : Blood and Decay. Poison hasn't come into it yet. They want Necro and WD to be different and WD already has poison.
Will PS4 and XBone get the patch at the same time as PC? : Yes, and they will get seasons too.
Saffron Wrap --- Any plan to incorporate Overpower into a Barb Set? : They will let people experience it and see later on what they can do with it.
Solo vs Group --- Group more rewarding: It's on our radar
Akkhan --- any plan to rework it? : We're interested to see what kind of builds people come up with before seeing what to do with it.
More Achievements? : More to come with Necromancer patch.
Sets vastly outperform others --- how do you feel about it and how to balance them: We don't want people to log in and feel weaker. We buffed some sets on PTR. We plan to continue to monitor the situation.
Any plan to overhaul and improve the character skill system: We wouldn't rebuild the skill system. Went on to talk about their amazing itemization...
New transmog for seasonal reward? : New cosmetics for season 9
Timeline --- S8 ending and S9 starting: Announce more info very soon
Will there be an alternative true endgame that can compete against GR? : Seasons really help to keep the game fresh. It is an endgame route. No other plans... GR is the place. Challenge Rift also coming... New Challenge Rift on a regular basis.
Archon skill dominance --- Any plans to increase variety? : Check out Delsere... we'll continue to look at this.
Why don't CM and Dev develop more with the community? : We're kind of experimenting different ways to communicate with you. The forum is a small community. This Facebook is one of those experiment. We want to reach a broader audience. We tried Twitch, Youtube and now Facebook.
---(changes to GR) additional tweaks coming to PTR---
(Last official question)
What kind of things the D3 team wants for XMAS? : Wyatt wanted some snow for XMAS... (blah blah blah)

Numlock appears to be legit, but as always, using those things at your own risk.
I think the bigger issue is... why should this even be allowed to exist? Skills like EB and Condemn requires an unhealthy amount of spamming to optimize it. I would be in favor of increasing their cooldown while also increasing the number of blasts (for EB).

Would I play Season? Well, since most of my friends may be there, I likely would also end up there.
The issue is that we barely have any activities outside of GR. Once you are sick and tired of GR (like me), NS has very little to offer. If we had other legit end-game activities, then yes, my NS characters would see more usage.
Gearing up has never been easier. What's left for NS exactly? Paragon grind. I'm not a fan of that... or GR.

I find it unlikely that D4 is going to be announced... but who knows.
I mean, they were recently looking for a game director and also needed to fill some other slots.

Paragon only really began to become an issue when the amount of XP you could gain from GR exploded.
Regardless of what they do with the XP acquisition rate, I personally believe that the current Paragon system is boring.
Ancient Items = More main stats (except for weapon)
Paragon = More main stats after Plvl 800
Augment = More main stats
I would prefer something that doesn't revolve around that.
Nowadays, D3 shifted from a Loot Hunting game into a XP farming and fishing simulator.
Mar 21, 2016Doom-Bringer posted a message on How we could put a Stop to Botters from Gaining the Advantage on Legit playersPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
4. Warden detected that there is such a huge player base that use bots, they would be eliminating 60-70% of all their players. I don't think that is the case, but it could be a possibility. It would be business suicide for them to ban 60-70% of all their players.
But at the same time, if they don't do anything, that % may very well grow. It will also make more legitimate players throw in the towel.
At some point, they need to get rid of rotten apples. That's exactly what we have now. They didn't take action for so long, the decay has spread nearly out of control.
Drastic actions need to be done. The situation will only worsen if nothing is done.

Rewarding cheaters by allowing them to keep what they didn't earn while punishing legit players.
That's some messed up thing.

I wish Primal offered something game-changing instead. I'm pleased with this version over the previous one, but it still has a lot of room for improvement. PTR is still young.

I'm not a fan of Wyatt. Having listened to the SC2 and HotS preview, D3's preview is horrible.
Sc2 and HotS were about what is to come. D3 was about the past...
Hopefully, what they show at Gamescom is inversely proportional to what we just got.
Jul 16, 2016Doom-Bringer posted a message on PTR 2.4.2 Hotfixes - July 15th, Torment XIII ExplainedPosted in: News
They should just have a Torment Y, where Y is between the equivalent of GR 46 (TX + 1)... or whatever the highest static difficulty is, and your highest cleared GR.
No need for more Torment. We can find our sweet spot. If we want to "re-feel" D3V boss fights all over again, we can crank up the difficulty and fight them. If we want an epic Story Mode, we can crank up the difficulty as well.
As for public game, you simply need to look at D2 and take note of its "level restriction". Instead of being level restriction, it would be difficulty range (for example), "Torment Y, from 70 to 80".
The MMS would look for public games within that range. If you want to find a game faster, be more generous. If you want to be really specific, be ready to wait longer, or join a community.
Everyone's a winner.
We could even have "Clear Story Mode on TY-100 challenge with no death allowed and now gear swapping". It could be interesting. If you're not into that kind of thing, you can do Regular Rifts on TY-100 if you want. You can do bounties, Ubers or other stuff on whichever difficulty you want.

Story mode is saved!
How about allowing us to scale "Story Mode" just like GR.
Challenge of the season: Complete the HIGHEST Story mode without dying (leaderboard).

It's highly unlikely that it drops from Bashiok or ANY Fallen that are in any "Bounty" location. Someone somewhere would have had found it by now.
It's probably in unexplored areas such as Sewers (not saying it's there) and such.
