Diablo® III

Character Creation Menu seems..... Lame.

I'm disappointed to see how un-epic the characters seem to be when your choosing them. In D2 I remember how cool and animated the characters were. All of them around a roaring camp fire ready to slay demons and begging for you to pick them. Each character would walk forward when chosen and do an animation.

In the D3 character selection screen it seems like the chars are just confined to this box and not very appealing at all when choosing them. I'm hoping that this is just for Beta only and Blizzard has something way cooler than them to be around a campfire. Maybe they can be around a pile of rotting corpses or perhaps something different any ideas?

Its called a beta. Cataclysm login sucked too.

Totally Agreed Ruffianx, I hope the character selection page is changed for the real game.

I really don't care, I'll be spending an almost negligible time on that screen anyway in comparison to the rest of the game.

I think I remember bashiok saying somewhere that they cut own the mini cinematics to make the beta a smaller file or something. someone find that quote for me haha, it's on the old d3 forum

with that we can expect to see a neat initial character creation screen like diablo 2, and probably a better character selection screen for already made characters as well.

I haven't played the beta, but I do agree that the character selection screen in D2 was preety badass.

What do you want? Each of them to fap furiously for you and explode in a vigor of unending ecstacy? I mean c'mon.


Well yeah that'd be sweet. Then maybe they could duel each other and activate fatalities for us. Then tell us some interesting trivia and do magic tricks!!! (Bliz hope your listening)

That just means you don't care about the whole game as a complete and awesome package. I think those are CRUCIAL moments, when you look at the character screen, it was some of the best feeling of D2 just looking around imagining all their powaaaahhh!!

No, it just means that I honestly am completely indifferent to the character selection screen because I'll see it for the couple of seconds it takes to click "female Demon Hunter" (or whatever gender-class combo) and to input a name.

I didn't image their poowaaaahh in D2, I imagined the lore behind the character I was creating and setting up their back story in my head, completely ignoring any superfluous graphics that I would be seeing again and again anyway as I play them in the actual game.

Stuff in my head about the character I'm creating and their story prior to taking the first steps under my direct control > them spinning or kicking or standing their burning out their corneas from staring at fire.

It's just a suggestion I recommend to enhance our experience with Diablo 3. I really think the D2 character selection screen really sold me right from the beginning on how good this game was going to be.

Something Blizzard can do to sell new people on the game is to make the character selection screen come to life. It's a psychological thing. When I saw the D2 char selection I was like " !@#$ is about to get real" The chars were ready to go and ready to fight and they were together. Blizz wants us to be with friends well they can showcase the characters at least next to each other ready to go. Just my thoughts....

I got an idea... lets delay the game 2 extra months so that your satisfied with the screen you will be on for a max of 5 minutes.... Really, this is what people complain about?

This is one of the least important things I can think of, since you're going to spend so little time on this screen, but the campfire from D2 was indeed extremely sexy.

Sadly, they complain about much much more trivial stuff.

That is true.... maybe being on this board is starting to get on my nerves... so much trivial complaining.
