Arsonyst, I'm also a D2:LoD veteran, I'm avoiding the comparisons because the way you are speaking is very ignorant.
Show me an official guide to analyzing Diablo III and how many elite kills I need to have an official opinion on the subject, and I'll be more than happy to comply. Other than that, I'm gonna take this along with the other similarly structured arguments/comments as elitist banter not worthy of admission. You haven't named a single point debunking the arguments I've made all over this thread, instead you are fixated on a number in my profile. Perhaps because you have no argument? Would seem to be the logical answer.
You don't need an official guide to understand more elite kills = more playtime its the same as an adult in their 40's perspective vs a teenagers: Who's view would be more mature? It's a no brainer.
Your comment is a clear display of ignorance.
you are putting words in my mouth; I never said it is superior, I just said they made drastic improvement
drastic improvement = superior
slightly better is still superior.
Since D3 is a "Drastic Improvement" why hasn't it won over the hardcore D3 fans? yet another post which shows ignorance. If D3 was such a success D2 should dead, however their player base is still "Strong", whereas the D3 playerbase is still wavering.
Go check D2jsp, the D2 community is still strong
If you really want to make comparisons between D2:LoD and D3, I'm all open, but please state the pros and cons that D3 has versus D2:
Auto gold pickup
MUCH superior combat system
Resource systems: AP, Fury, etc
(List is too long Cba but can elaborate if you want me to)
Without naming shared cons, this is all that I could come up with at the top of my head as both games share botting and duping issues.
So what does D3 have that makes it SO much better?
Despite everything else having the same issues such as economical, botting and duping?
