Everyone who paid their money and puts in a reasonable amount of game time deserves far better IMO.
And here we have one of the major sources of problems with this game. Too many people think like this guy, that just because they bought the game and played it that they are entitled to everything it has.
That's NOT what games are about. If you want to see everything just because you paid some nominal fee, go watch a movie or read a book. Games are about earning things and overcoming challenges.
the source of the problem is that the prices on so called "top gear" is completely inflated. A skorn with 1400 DPS for example and sufficient LL or LoH? Get ready to pay around 300-400$ worth of gold.
If you believe thats "reasonable" then I am sorry for you. Really.
Thing is, if you look at the current evolution with games, like F2P the good games out there offer people the possibility to reach a lot of content with the time they spend in the game.
Now I dont mind a certain randomness in D3. But many, really MANY people agree that the weak point of D3 is the flawed and very limited itemisation, now ad in to the the huge randomness you have on gear ... and you understand why people are so frustrated.
I would gladly accept LESS legendary and set items if the good items had actually some quality to them. But you dont have only to find some Immortal King item, no, it has to get the "correct" rolls or its useless. The "buff" on legendary and set items was a joke in my eyes.
Not even D2 at the end was THAT random with the powerfull gear and items.
Dont be surprised if D3 will be a ghost town before the expansion hits ... because honestly, there is not much else to do then farm the SAME equipment over and over again just to get those trifecta stats on everything. You think thats awesome? Kudos to you then. I dont think thats a good evolution for D3. It makes the game very shallow.
I say it again. I would NOT have a problem to find LESS items if the Items I find would have more quality. Its not fun to find 5 or 6 echoying fury, 4 skorns, 3 mempos, 2 Ik belts etc. but all of them useless garbage.
The difference between "useless" and "super-duper-2-billion-high-end-item" is simply to high in D3.
