02/06/2013 05:14 AMPosted by Zaxxon23Who cares about what these players ask for? Anyone who asks for such a thing clearly does not understand what Diablo represents! YOU should know this. ALL of you devs and community people should know this. You undertook the responsibility of a Diablo sequel! You owe the fans of this series to understand what a Diablo game means and not listen to the people who were never Diablo fans in the first place and can't possibly understand how damaging any form of binding is to this type of game.
One of the great things about crafting is the multiple functions it can serve. A healthy resource sink at this point in the game’s life cycle seems like it would be a good thing, and the 1.0.7 bind-on-account crafting recipes and gems should help in that regard. The crafting recipes also provide you the chance to roll a best-in-slot item that you can't buy or sell on the Auction House (something which players have been asking for), and the Marquise gem of course will be the highest tier available in the game.
As time goes on and the game changes, it is likely crafting will as well. We feel that bind-on-account items are the right thing for the game at this moment, but of course we want to keep adapting with the community and the economy as they evolve. In the meantime, and as always, it would be great to hear your ideas about crafting, and we encourage you to keep talking about what you'd like to see out of the system. :)
You are playing a Diablo game. You are not supposed to find everything yourself. If you could, you wouldn't be playing a Diablo game!
The Community has been asking for better Crafting Items, not BOA items, STOP thinking in the economy of the AH, The biggest problem of the Blizz its that thing, you keep thinking in having items worth more than 2b. but made the game impossible to casual players to find it by their own means.. You guys made a game where we have to reach 1000+ hrs to find a "BiS" item.. The crafting it's not worth it because you just made 1 specific stat, and all the other five just can be as bad as they are now.. the thing is.. if i have a "nice" glove, and i decide to craft, those "good" Gloves that i could probably sell in 200k-2m in the AH i would have to salvage them, and lose the crafting money+materials.. until i got gloves better than the ones i already have..
Consider a MAJOR change in the Itemization, give 1.0.8 patch a complete relevance to Itemization, don't improve characters, don't touch the pathetic system of the PvP, stop nerfing inferno, just do the damn thing with the itemization..
If u do what i say i am TOTALLY sure that 100% of the player base will comeback to the game, and at least 80% will stay permanently..
After you do that.. continue with your normal patching, improving what you think needs to be improved..
Just look at your own PTR feedback. Nearly 6 pages of people against BoA gems, with only a couple of 'neutral' and zero for the idea.We Like gambling (1.07 crafting)We Hate BoA gemsI strenously urge Blizzard to reconsider BoA Marq Gems.
There's a big difference between finding items to get by, and finding BIS stuff yourself. You have the CHOICE in a Diablo game to play self-found at a clear disadvantage, or trade and gear up in the best stuff. You have NEVER been entitled to the best stuff playing self-found.
You made no hole in my logic. You just showed that you have no credibility when talking about the multiplayer aspect of D2 or D3. This is why devs should not listen to people like you. You do not understand the game from a big picture view. You only understand it from your own selfish perspective.
