    I'm a little confused by the implications of d4 not being FTP, this implies that there is some sort of subscription fee after purchasing the game. When was this mentioned?


    Why would you assume it implies that ? They stated that it will be a one time purchase to play and expansions , with microtransactions in between.

    It was purely based on comments earlier in this thread stating the game "should be FTP" or that it could "go FTP and still be successful" and this kind of implies that it ISN'T going to be FTP, lmao, that's where my confusion came from, because I assumed it would be a one time purchase with expansions as you stated, do people think microtransactions make a game NOT FTP?

    posted a message on ‘Diablo 2 Remaster and Diablo 4 will be announced at Blizzcon’

    I want both of these games. I'm afraid to hope for anything so I'll wait til Blizzcon and believe it when I see it.

    posted a message on Blizzard President about Diablo Immortal: “we’re happy with how it’s coming along”

    They should have announced their progress on their other diablo titles instead of expecting people to eat their shit and love it for diablo immortal.


    I honestly assumed they weren't going to make this game anymore since I haven't heard a peep since it was announced.

    posted a message on How would you improve Diablo 3?

    Just right off the top of my head, other than generally improving the story writing, Get rid of sets, or make them just 2 or 3 piece and be less powerful. Make crafting and random chance important again, gambling for a suitable griffin eye or finding the perfect ethereal weapon while collecting the necessary runestones made the items feel that much more important and special when you finally had them. Nowadays you're salvaging 90% of what you find. They aren't even cool anymore.

    posted a message on Diablo 4 - What we know (or assume to know) so far

    My expectations are pretty low. I absolutely love this series, but I'm very hesitant to hope for anything that I'd really enjoy playing (a very lore heavy game with all of the elements that made D2 and D3 enjoyable, but modernized). I'm cautiously optimistic for something new being announced at Blizzcon, but I'm annoyed by the Diablo Immortal debaucle, and the "multiple diablo projects in 2019" blurb with absolutely zero news.


    Honestly, I'm Diablo trash, so I'll probably play whatever is put out, but I'll see what comes up in the future before I start getting hyped for anything.

    posted a message on Demon Hunter cinematic trailer vocals

    Hello! If you download MPQ extractor you can rip audio files from the game itself, but if you mean the animated CGI Demon Hunter intro when they introduced the class, that's not actually part of the game installation and the music for it alone may be impossible to obtain. It may be possible that the music exists in a game file, but you'd have to search for it with MPQ extractor.

    posted a message on Where to buy Diablo prints?

    Check out the art section on the official diablo site to get an idea for what the official art looks like and what's been available. Other than posters sold in the blizzard store, you're probably not going to find much else. Diablo historically doesn't get much merchandise.


    You might be better off getting high res art printed yourself.

    posted a message on Barbarian's Tattoos

    The blue warpaint is very reminiscent of scottish warpaint (famously seen in the move Braveheart) but seems like that block color style was used more for the D3 Barbarian, rather than D2. The D2 Barb looks like he is wearing something closer to viking or norse paint/tattoos. Since it might be difficult to recreate exactly what you are looking for, a nice compromise might be an enlarged rune tattooed on your forearm in blue. Then it will be recognizably Diablo, and also have that Barbarian blue warpaint style you are looking for.

    posted a message on 2018 in Review: The year that changed everything?
    Quote from Mob Dylan»

    It's not just Blizzard that's changing. The entire AAA video game industry is imploding, with a few exceptions of course. I believe there is gonna be another crash like the one we had in '83. The signs are all there; lack of innovation, predatory monetization tactics, releasing incredibly buggy and unfinished products, Ivory tower syndrome, graphics and wow factor while game play takes a backseat, single serving gaming mentality (mobile gaming), alienation of core fan base and damaged reputations.


    Companies that actually care to craft products of superb quality will come out of this ok, others are gonna fall far from grace (already happening). Indie and AA games will get the lions share of the "gamer" market in coming years. Indies are already on a massive upswing while AAA games are having increasingly poor numbers (there are a few that continue to grow and are exceptions).


    This is just my honest opinion about things and in no way to be taken as facts. Research this on your own to come to your own conclusions.

    I feel that this is the most accurate. I don't trust Activision Blizz, even tho I'm very hopeful for Diablo 4, any other new Diablo title, and even a tiny bit for immortal being fun to play. I used to expect top quality from Blizzard games and a dedicated team who valued gameplay and story over pushing microtransactions and money. Those who keep their integrity might make it to the other side, but AAA developers are already going down the shitter because people are tired of the predatory money grabbing and unfinished game releases.


    Maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised by more news this coming year, maybe not, but I'm hopeful because I really love the Diablo series. I have loved it since I was ten watching my best friend play on her old shitty mac computer before I was able to purchase it for myself. I'm not willing to give up on it just yet.

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Black Soulstone video question?

    I would guess it to be Khanduran or "common western kingdoms" but some of the Diablo books might get more specific.


    The wiki has some info about languages also https://www.diablowiki.net/Sanctuary#/editor/4

    posted a message on Diablo Immortal: What a MMOARPG should be IMHO

    Not only would I love an open world like that, I'd love it even more if it was in the style of Witcher 3 or similar.


    But it seems as tho they're using the MMOARPG label to tell people that you can play with multiple individuals and the game is ARPG, but doesn't necessarily resemble the traditional MMO that we're used to. I assume this is because of Mobile limitations or an unwillingness to develop in between spaces.

    posted a message on Different view on Diablo Immortal

    I think if they had announced or said ANYTHING else about the "other projects" while also having diablo immortal it would have done a lot to stem the flood of disappointment. They started a hype train and got people excited for a game no one really asked for.


    That said, while I am disappointed that it's a mobile game with D3 assets, I'm always interested in more lore/stories and zones to explore. I think there will be things to like in DI, but the platform is not ideal.

    I'm not happy. Hopefully they realize how upset everyone is and pull something out of their ass at the panel.


    I'm still gonna play the mobile game, because I love Diablo, but it's pretty disappointing....
