I'd like to place this positive post about D3, to alleviate the negative mood found in most of the posts here. In two hours of gameplay I can tell you that D3 IS still like D2 in MANY ways, regardless of the indiviual integration of seperate structures D2 offered compared to D3 (such as skill point allocation). I wanted to mention a few things that I've experienced during the first two hours of BETA gameplay that I feel are small but quick wins that associate success to the mechanics of the new game changes.

If you feel I've missed something that is not included, please post and I will update accordingly. It would be great to have this 'Positive' list as easy reference for anyone looking to see various game improvements compared to the previous versions.
