I play it because i was not looking for another D2. People are disapointed because of d3 mostly because it's not like d2. I think it's a very good game and i'm having fun with my friends playing it.
By the way what was diablo 2 at the end? Grinding using bot.
And moaning because you didn't get an answer in 14 minutes doesn't mean everyone think this game is bad And posting at 12Pm pst when most of players are at work / School not gona help.. Anyway why are you still in this forum if you don't like d3?
Not really. It's mostly due to the design desitions that were extremely influenced by WoW, destroying the fun itemization paradigm D2 ran on. This pretty much sets optimization as the new standard, instead of the overpowering hack and slash Diablo was in it's previous installments.
That being said, i don't think the game is bad. It's actually pretty entertaining, but the fact itemization is so boring and homogenized makes it lose a lot
of it's magic. Combat is extremely satisfying in terms of "punch", but it leaves you kinda disappointed once it's over and you find your backpack is full of worthless trash way too often. Part of the magic D2 had was finding good loot rather easily.
Please, don't mistake "godly" with "good", as many D3 apologists falaciously do. I understand godly gear needs to be rare. What i'm talking about is about mid-level gear that's perfectly viable for endgame content. Think about the exceptional quality uniques back in D2, great items that kept the spark alive for years. In D3 we have nothing like this, which makes the game feel extremely
unrewarding. This happens, imho, due to the obscene amount of RNG involved when an item is rolled. Improving the overall item quality (not the droprate, which is already excessive and only amplifies the nauseating and prevalent feel of way too much trash everywhere) is key if this game is going to have some longevity. One can only take so much of weapons with 300 dps, quivers with strenght, mojos with dexterity, monk hats with intellect, and so on. Itemization in general is completely disastrous.
Also, in terms of content, it's very disappointing, for something that was in development for 5+years. Ac3 runs all the time gets boring fast.
Back on topic, i honestly don't mind if the game makes it to console format. Not sure why the sad face about this...
