But I agree that the game does need more of an item sink. I think they missed the boat with PvP. Perfect opportunity to help the economy out and do it in a way that's highly acceptable to the HC community. Another way might be to up the rewards for playing on higher MP and/or reduce the rewards for lower MP, to encourage riskier play (SC could benefit from less rewards on lower MP, too). There's probably other ways. But randomly killing characters seems a little too capricious if it's only to purpose is to maintain an economy. (Especially since it's an economy that some people don't even choose to participate in).

02/04/2013 01:12 PMPosted by EdisonOk what exactly do you think healthy economy should look like? Because with more deaths you get less items (meaning their prices rise) and you don't get less gold, as you don't loose it upon death, so prices rise again.

WhiteOwl has been playing HC a long, long time. Look at the substance of what he is saying, and agree/disagree based on that substance.
When people have no playtime, and talk, and are wrong, they are not wrong because they have no play time. When people haven't beaten inferno, and are wrong, they are not wrong because they haven't beaten inferno.
To me, the most important thing that makes hardcore fun is the fact that the drops i find are REWARDING. Unlike softcore, where I will be hard pressed to find anything that can sell with it's totally messed up economy.
02/04/2013 11:00 AMPosted by WhiteOwlI stopped caring here - but I read all of your post
Why? I'm curious. I heard similar comments when I first started playing.
People would say things like. . ."You don't have any HC characters." So I made some.
"You don't have any Lv 60's" So I made some.
"You don't have any Lv60 DH's" So I made one.
"You can't use Chain Lightning in Inferno" So I did.
Every single time I was told I didn't have an opinion (or the right to express it) because of some lack of achievement (or perception of it) I went and did it. And do you know what's changed about my game? Nothing. Not one damn thing has changed about the way I play. I've changed how I select armor, and what pieces I equip- but my game hasn't changed a lick. So when someone has an opinion, the wise man listens and thinks. And the General Discussion goobers post attack posts about how people don't have the right to speak unless they are P50's.
