Diablo® III

Please make 8ppl game possible - like in D2

I don't understand why D3 is limiting the number of player per game to only 4 players. I want to play with my brother, his 2 friends and my 2 friends. Now we have to split up to do uber and farming. It just doesn't make sense that a 10 years old game like D2 can handle 8 players back when we were using dial up, and D3 can't do the same using broadband.

Please restore D2 8 player goodness.

Thank you.

Anyone else think this is a needed improvement for the next patch?

I feel like it would be too clustered the way it is set up now if they allowed more than 4 players. I think the screen would need to be zoomed out more to accommodate more players. I still however agree with the OP, 4 is too small of a number. There have been countless times where I wanted to play with 5-6 ppl but ended up splitting it up 4,2 or 3,3 and sharing a vent channel.

I think 6 would be a good fair number to shoot for if they plan on increasing the number of players allowed in a single game.

I agree that 6 would be a nice number. I think 8 would be a bit much given all that goes on even in a 4 player game.
I would truly love if we could have more though.

4 was always to low of a number. I have always wondered if the plan from the start was introduce the game as 4 player and then use the expansion to take it to 8 player (major selling point).

I couldn't see any other reason why you would want to go backwards from D2. Of course I can't see the reason why they have done a lot of the dumb things in this game.

Everytime the dev team mentions to improve team play in this game, I mock b/c of this reason. They actually downgrade the socializing aspect compared to D2.

i could barely see anything with just 4 players due to 1000000x different graphical effects...

Boy if that ain't the truth. I think blizz totally has misunderstood the importance of social aspects of the game.

They need to fix the game before adding more fail...

Do we really need more WW/nado and perma-freeze in the game?

How much health would mobs have when 8 people in the game? With current scaling it would take so long to kill them that no one would want to play with 8 people...

The rubberbanding and load lag is horrible with just 4 players right now. 8 players won't help.
