The hard part is pushing through the tedious farming to get the gear, and with every patch they seem to make the farming more and more tedious. Now Diablo isn’t a game, it’s a chore. Right up there with standing in line at the DMV or filling out tax forms.
like inferno mode because it is hard and some parts of hell mode, being easy and nerf is the reason I left cataclysm pre-firelands raid patch (Blizzard nerfed heroic dungeons and raids to please the kids and idiots playing because they can't access the said hard content - retarded butthurt players).
The only thing I find ridiculous and not categorized as hard is the overpriced GAH! You think saving up millions of gold like let's say 60m for an item is hard? that's ridiculous! not hard...
"I have always been a part of the top percentiles in games and if all of the casuals were up here with people like me, then there would be a problem.
The only way crappy players will be able to clear the game on inferno is with overkill for gear. Which means they will have to spend hundreds of dollars on the gear because they won't spend the 100s, if not thousands, of hours that it will take to farm it all."
Nice post. I agree with it for the most part. I love feeling overpowered in these types of games. Diablo 3 just lacks that. If I wanted a skill based game, I would go play one. If I wanted to grind for hours at a time just to slowly progress, I'd play an MMO.
I've said it before, Diablo 3 is trying to be too many things at once. In doing so, it fails at all of them.
The biggest problem in my eyes with this game, ...with just gear I've found, after about 300 hours of playing; I don't get to jump into a pack of monsters and fight my way out...oh no, I run around the screen with my head cut off praying the pack of monsters will stop following me so my spell timers will end and I can attempt to get another shot off before I run for my life again. That's NOT diablo.
