No matter how much you want to !@#$% this games pvp is still 10x better than pvp in diablo 2.
In diablo 2
-it wasnt organized at all, the game didnt keep score
-no level brackets to keep the level 90s from murdering other players
-you needed to have a dedicated pvp character, instead of just changing runes.
if you made a summoning necro you could not do pvp at all, you would have to make an entirly new necromancer just for the pvp
-entire builds could be completed countered just by wearing certain items, made yourself an ice amazon? i hope that bear doesnt have a ravenfrost ring because if he does he is just going to teleport ontop of you with enigma and stunlock you with his melee attack that has a 100% chance to stun for 2 seconds
-there were no teams, it was always a free for all
-if you died once and your opponent wants to camp your corpse you have to leave the game
-everyone had to agree to not use potions, there was no way to enfource the rule, and if you did use potions you could never die
-oppenents could map town portal to a hotkey and flee to safety unless you could 1 shot them. players tried to ban TP in pvp maps but there was no way to enforce this.
PS: 10K Elite kills. One character and class at level 60. Why don't you play the game? If you are bored with the little you have played of it, maybe this just isn't the game for you. Go get a copy of GRO.
The funny thing is that most people with 10k elite kills who are still on these forums are hardcore Diablo fans who got those 10k kills within the first few weeks and quickly realized how unrewarding it was to play.
All blizzard games have had some type o competitive pvp.
Why Diablo 3 has no trace of such aspects, is a travesty.
Tell me how a meteor wiz has any chance against a haunt WD? What chance does a WW barb have against a WoL monk? There are builds that need to be sustained to operate and there are single-target skills that completely invalidate nearly all AoE skills.
Plus with the whole mainhand weapon damage thing it really mucks it up. Not to mention barbs start with no fury while wiz and WD regen constantly. Stuff like that. Its totally possible to build around this but its so brutish that its more of a pain to pvp than it is fun. Ultimately that is a problem don't you think?
I don't see how Enigma "broke" D2. I think it was probably the greatest item in the game. It gave every character and build complete mobility (except werebear, werewolf). This technically in a way put every character on even ground.
