Diablo® III

No MP in Public Games.

Is this going to kill off a fair amount of multiplayer games? I can't help but think it is.
While I get the idea of leeching being part of this decision I hope that maybe blizz will allow a 'disable' function for it.
Or maybe implement some kind of, and I can't believe Ima say this, gearscore match.

Just allow it. geeze, already 90% of people only play solo.
D3 is MEANT to be multiplayer. Its freakin server side so you can't play offline. Yet they still implement all these things (4 player max) to STOP multiplayer.

Its pretty much an online single player game. Stupid.

It just seems to be yet another reason not to play public games.

I can understand why they did this, but I really wish blizzard would add some kind of incentive to playing multiplayer, increased exp maybe? I dunno just something so encourage multi player games.

i dunno i think multiplayer actually plays a specific role, at least for me.

you can level and fly through the game really fast, get lots of gold and generally progress through the game very quickly. I don't look at it as mp farming or whatever, i might catch up with a mate but then i'm not really playing the game, just having fun and bumming about...running in circles.. lol.

but yeah for me multiplayer is great for speed leveling and getting gold. Single player for actually playing the game and working with character builds and such. i guess it depends what you want out of your game.

it says in the title no MP for public games. Does this include multiplayer? because those are 2 different things. You can play with friend multiplayer and not open your game to Public.

Can you clarify if its both or just public?

i think public games are full of lazy ppl or under geared ppl and even slow farmers thats why most of us play private multi player games or solo i think its a good idea theres no public games for mp lvl's other wise there would be 2 many ppl trying to get a free pass in higher mp lvl's when they clearly couldn't play that high on there own


couldn't agree more!

It should be up to the individual who starts the Public Game.

Only Public games are affected.

i dunno bout u guys, but i alwyas play Diablo games solo anyways. I was more pissed when they made the game online-only and claimed it is for "better experience". Now the player base proves them wrong by most of us playing solo, and even the direction they take with the design discourage multiplayer. Might as well stuck to giving us offline mode yeh?
