“Internally, we had this super hardcore test group – we’ve got a lot of hardcore players at Blizzard – that tested Inferno, and we got it to the point where they thought it was challenging enough,” Blizzard’s Jay Wilson told IGN.
“Then we doubled it. Because we knew, no matter how good we are, our players are gonna be better. We focussed on making that as difficult as we could make it.”
So basically they tested something that was hard, doubled the difficulty without testing, and then went straight to ship - Herein lies proof & fault. And Yes, I am in Act 2 Inferno before anyone flames me. A Barbarian noless, I soloed Skeleton King, Butcher, rares etc, but holy damn Act 2 is crazy. Cant imagine 3 and 4 in the current state. I am a 2h burst build and geared very well with a 900+ dps axe (Sorry I cant afford a 2million 1200dps weapon)
I cant find the video - But heres a press release about it for proof.
I'm just bringing some more awareness to this issue. Some know this, but could be news to others.
Just seems silly. And once you get there, it is quite silly.
