Playing Diablo III needs to be a rewarding experience.


Is there an ETA on when this patch will come out?

^ Jay, answer this.
If Jay really gave a crap what Diablo fans wanted he would step aside and let the adults show him what Diablo is all about. The old Diablo team !@#$ out more Diablo knowledge than Jay will ever know. He insulted them and insulted the fans by telling us that we didn't remember Diablo II correctly. Sorry jay we remember D2 just fine. Just like we remember what you and your team did to the Diablo franchise.

Put Jay Wilson on the drive through at McDonald's, that is more his style. He could tell customers that they don't remember what a Big Mac tastes like.

Why is this thread at page 135 and still going while the Trail of Cinders thread is capped at page 76?

The worst offense to the Diablo name is the removal of pentagrams and other satanic imagery.

Absolutely this. +1. It simply isnt evil. No dark story line, i mean where's my countess who used to bathe in the rejuvinating blood of a hundred virgins? Where's my bittersweet taste of vengeance i used to find so much to my liking? I think Diablo 3 is too politically correct, trying to appeal to the masses and not being the cult hit it should be. Diablo has lost its "Evil cult status".

What a shame, because it had so much promise. Its not a bad game by any means, it just could have been so much more.

P.s. Dont even mention the ponies and presents. Sigh.

Edit.
Act 1 was and still is quite enjoyable. I almost get that feeling of evil. It just seems like they forgot what they were doing after that and made something thats not out of place on a kids cartoon channel.

Don't NERF skills so hard.

Please read and apply use of gamer feedback.

Right now your game is a cartoon where people run around unable to beat the elite encounters unless there is a monk or barb playing with them.

This is not fun.

Make it fun.

You're a joke. Hand the reigns over to someone else.
being a die hard diablo fan since the beginning i myself can agree that the launch was based off the rep of diablo and diablo2 ive heard alot of people talk about changing the skill system and go back to having a skill tree and be able to allocate your stats and skills as you go through the levels, as far as the gear goes ive played numerous hours since 1.04 and still have not found any legendary/sets kinda disappointing but i will stick with it as the development team continues to listen to our feedback and tweak the game.

as far as the development team goes you cannot expect it to be diablo 2 when the team is different, and i think dave has a right to be unhappy with the results of the game since he was a HUGE part of the making of the games I and II the player base is dropping but given time and tweaks and reversing nerfs i think people will come back hopefully.

with the nerfs mentioned bring back the demon hunter and nether tentacles!!!!
Got to agree about Marvel Heroes. Looking forward to it.

I can't even bring myself to log into D3 anymore.

Which is a shame, because I was really looking forward to liking the game.

In the good news, I sold a few things on the RMAH before it went to complete ghost town, and bought D2, as I kept losing my previous copies and CD keys over moves and new computers.

That day was the most rewarding day of D3 since launch.
Also, I do want to take a moment to thank Jay for all this, by the way.

I didn't even know anything about Marvel Heroes before this.

Now I have something to look forward to.
I wanted to experiment this weekend and see if I would get any items of value to make my "Now finally Act 2 Epicness" Monk feel stronger...... I put in close to 30 hours this Labor Day weekend putting in close to 3x 12hr sessions. I noticed the following with Magic Find, and the fact the item mechanics system is broken.

I have a monk who has over 198% Base MF, I fiddled with his MF going through Act 1/2 Inferno with only 100MF Base and noticed Rare quality was worst ilvl 50's~ after 5 stacks I noticed same 50's quality with the splatter of ilvl60+. I played this way for at least 1 full shift. Getting absolutely nothing of value except farming of gold.

2nd day I took my gold and upgraded my armor on the GAH for some MF gear and started farming Act 1/2 and noticed now the iLVL went up at least 6lvls. I was now noticing iLVL 58-61 more often with sprinklings of 62-63. I then moved up to mainly just act 2, and noticed my quality was now even better 97% iLVL 60+ at this time I then called it a night and stopped.

3rd day I did mainly Act 3 constantly dying but still getting 61+ ilvl items and 1 out of every 30 was lvl 59. At this time I was geting rares with 6-7 affixes to the ilvl 62-63 items. I was thinking SCORE I'm on my way to legendaries and Set items... At this point with 5 stacks i'm roughly 280's for MF.. I've played a HIGH level amount of hours, yet still no legendaries or set items. I found out of my 3 days of playing 10 items were of upgrade to two of my characters, but none would sell on GAH, I tried every night to sell what I didn't use and could NOT find a buyer even at the low purchases of 40k.

What i'm trying to get at, is I NEVER in Diablo 1/2 days had to work so fricken hard to make my warrior/paladin ranger/sorc D1/D2 characters feel epic. i finally have 30 hours of hard grinding was able to get a upgrade worthy of keeping me alive 2-4 more hits in Act 1/2 than previous. I made maybe 1 million a night in gold which was nice but after buying 1 set of VERy low gear (which by the way GET RID OF THE BOTS ON THE AH!) I was out bidded within the last 30seconds by 2K which seemed very odd as both times I put odd #'s yet i was outbidded by even rounded off #'s....

In any case, I never had to devote a portion of my LIFE to a game..... This is seriously feeling like a MMO which I promised I wouldn't get myself into.... In any case I won't spend real money to feel cool in a game, and I sure as heck won't devote a % of my life to a game, I never really feel epic in. At least with the competition I can play a game for 200hrs and feel like i've conquered the world. In this game, I only feel like i've been in a race against millions of others to find the 1 LONE item that everyone else can find or can't find in hopes that i can get 1 quest farther in Inferno....

I swear I feel like i'm on drugs...... its a gambling addiction SOMETHING, it just doesn't feel right. I think seriously this is no longer the title I grew up with.. This is no longer the market i grew up in, everything is a comodity. They need to make money off of everything, even the materials to make the crappy items that we roll the dice on :| Just doesn't seem right....

Oh well I really want to deck my character out in class specific set armor..... But wait thats going to cost currently 85million gold..... I spent 30hours after my repairs and my gear cost my GROSS gold find was 3million thats on 4 player games with companions who know what there doing which takes about 5 game restarts so a waste of about 1 hour every 7hrs on average.... So in the end I don't feel accomplished. I know I spent $60 bucks and got 60+ hrs I should be happy. I know i'll get flamed, but i'm sorry to say KIDS you are the minority, you are not the 7am to 5pm M-F professional worker, who has to spend time outside of work learning more in my field or doing work related study. I don't get the comfort of having room mates, or no kids so you people who play this game for 300+ hrs a week can go back to your hole in the closet and maybe go back to playing WoW and join your iNet friends & family circle.

Anyway i'm done.... Hopefully this game gets fixed, so when I dust the icon off of my desktop in about 18 months it'll be awesome to play again for another month or so.

Peace Jay W! Your words and candor, did nothing for your group just really showed me how sad the youth is these days....... You road on the coat tales of hippie and older gen designers and expect what you and management thought were the "Right" ideas by throwing in monatizing gold sink holes, that basically the gold sinks directly into your pockets..... Should really be illegal, but you guys thrive off the computer geeks with no social outlet for life who really only can survive by playing your games, because somehow your world is better than the one they currently live in......

Its just sad, I know i'll get flamed on this thread, but no other adult will seriously speak up on these forums, figured I might as well.

Oh and your probably now asking yourself, if he's so adult why is he o a forum making a thread ranting BLEH BLEH BLEH.

Want to know why? Sure?.............
