GGG plans on releasing the game at September, it will not be always in beta like some unethical company's.
I can totally tolerate PoE's game crash problem (which mostly happens on 32bit machines) because the instanced areas last for 8 to 15 minutes before closed.
And solution for now, expanding "-gc 1" or "-gc 2" to the shortcut will delay it's happening.
As to D3, I don't know if or not they've fixed the Furious Charge bug that prevents you from doing anything but leaving the game. The bug lasts for at least half a year without being fixed, I sincerely don't understand why such bug is not highly prioritized. Or perhaps the can't do anything but leaving the game was already the fix, the character can't die anyway, case closed :x
That bug has been in since day 1.
It was just made more common to a massive extent in 1.0.4(?).
But, yes, that ignored bug (and there are others with FC) is testimony to the Blizzard D3 lack of caring and snail pace development. It took a thread which linked over 100 ignored threads about that bug to get a response of 'Thanks guys, we're working on it.', for nothing to happen still.
It looks like the creator of the thread has given up now, too.
I have to say that some players think that all bugs are created equal, but in actuality they are not all created equal. There are different as night and day. Some are easy to spot and they know what is causing the bug and where it is at in the code. These are the ones that are also easy to reproduce.
But then there are others that might be easy to reproduce. But then finding the part of the code that is causing the bug might be like finding a needle in a haystack. Then take some bugs that are hard for the bug team to reproduce. Even if you give them all of the needed information, that bug still might not be easy to reproduce. So trying to figure out how to fix it will not be easy at all.
04/10/2013 03:12 AMPosted by RocotitoWe're going to keep improving Diablo III and building it into an even better game no matter what, and hopefully what we're working on will really appeal to you. If you're not sure it appeals to you just yet, that's cool too; like I said, we'll be sharing more info as new things develop, and you can make a more informed decision then.
Lylirra, there is no need to reinvent the wheel, the closer D3 to D2 Lod, the better and a happier player comunity.
All questions in Q & A seek to understand if the development team is moving in the right direction (closer to D2 Lod), but all answers and modifications made to the game since release have a diferent flavor, I read all the time "D3 is all about this and that ", please make sure to honour the succesfuly design of D2 Lod, it is fun to play even today. I'm pretty sure if you make radical changes to incorporate many features from D2 even the people that have invested money on the game (like myself) will no complain, please do not fear radical changes, the situation could not be worst than today
If this game wound up becoming a perfect HD copy of D2:LOD with a different story, I would quit the second it would do that. I like the majority here want an improvement to D2:LOD not a perfect clone of that game. I want D3 to be an improvement on the series like D2:LOD was to D1. Comments like this made me wonder why players of D1 did not complain and say that you had to incorporate all of D1's features in order for D2 to be fine. Nostalgia might be fine for some but not the majority here.
The Q&A ignore the most frequent questions by players, so they are of very little to no value. Some PR, thats it.
Where are the Q&A on class balance? Duping? AH / RMA future?
Less "bake a pie contest", more "we are moving class X towards class Y with changes A&B .."
What are they gonna do about duping when the biggest duper is Blizz due to the account rollbacks that were not BoA. Now that all regions have the same feature of all future account rollbacks are BoA. The sea of duping should go down drastically. The only dupes in the market now would be ones that already exist. Or in some cases players would actually try to fake it. In order to make it look like players are able to dupe. How they go about it might not be known but it can still happen.
