Each stat affix in Diablo III aren’t meant to be equal or directly competitive with each other..
then why would you ever "nerf" or "balance" anything?
ias nerf in the beginning "was more powerful than other stats and needed to be toned down"
loh & traps
and so on.. and thats just a few of the DH nerfs not adding in ones from other classes.
you all have come out several times over the last 6-7 months talking balance shortly followed by something getting nerfed and now this comment totally contradictory to the past actions.
most of the polls if i even notice them go ignored since to me they are pointless. here to shoot and kill as many demons as possible with the little amount of play time i have available.
I couldn't tell you about any of the story dialog since i escape through any of it as fast as possible to move on.. actually wish there was an option to turn off cutscenes and dialog cause i dont care to hear or see it.. it is impeding my goal of slaying as many demons as i can before work or getting sleep before work.
i would much rather see serious polls asking our collective opinions on things that matter or we as players would prefer the direction the game should be taken.
it goes back to the old forum topics and the ragefest that went on for a little while about how it was said that you all decided what was "fun" for us.
make the game.. let the players show you and decide what we as players want to do or what we as players decide is fun in the game, the Steve Jobs mentality of "im not going to give them what they want i am going to give them what i think they need and only that" needs to go away..
so far everything i had ever thought was fun or enjoyable in d2 you all have done away with or not implemented at all and anyone thats brought it up has pretty much been ridiculed off the forums. even cows you all F'd over i used to love cow runs, and you give us that whimsey crap..
i dont know who thought it was "funny" to put "my lil pony" in diablo but the bright colors and music just annoy the hell outta me to the point of wishing i had the gold back from the inferno staff i made and used maybe twice.. if ya didnt wanna redo cows coulda turned it into camels, horses, anything..
its not wow, its not a true role playing game, its an arpg... gimme a fast bow, strong sword, or overpowered spell.. point me in the general direction of massive waves of monsters to slay, then leave me the hell alone..
sorry, but i dont care about you, joebob above me or billybob below me that will prolly flame me and call me an idiot.. i dont care about your pets, how cute ya new kitten is, or that ya had a hard weekend and that your bf or gf or lesbian lover left ya..
i'd like to occasionally hear about upcoming patches and whats on the horizon, would love to hear when pvp is coming (even though i dont really pvp, but have friends lookin forward to it), would like to see sh*t like a poll saying this "do you want a socket quest? yes / no?"
like the op said meaningful polls, polls the player base can partake in to determine the direction the game is taken..
get rid of the pointless fluff, dont wanna get to know you or what ya had for dinner last night.. i want to know whats on the horizon patch wise.. what issues are being fixed.. and where i can find the next pack of mobs since i cant do boss runs..
how bout the next poll "who wants a refund on the pony staves?"
