Players with just a few hundred thousand in their possession in inferno really gets hit pretty hard. Before they could try to grind act 3 and act 4 for some gear for some chance to get richer. But now they have to troll in act 1 with debatably worse drops. As there is a huge barrier to entry into act 3 and 4.
I feel like this has encouraged really conservative play which I really don't like to see in an RPG. Isn't it funner to be bold, get killed a few times and have a great time doing it?
