Hey guys! For people that dont know me, I'm Rakunvar ;P
I stream on Twitch.tv and am a Multiboxer, me and InigoMontoya/Datmodz/Rober/Cro etc etc are always hanging out in Mumble and of course streaming. Feel free to visit any and all of my locations! I do also try to stream from a different location each time.
(No I dont get any money from youtube or streaming atm. I am trying to eventually, due to my health issues.)
I made a few new videos I wanted to share with you all!!
1.07 LIVE vs 1.08 PTR Split Screen Monster Density Changes!
END OF THE VIDEOS HAS THE MONSTERS KILLED COUNT!
Area's cleared: Fields of Misery: Festering Woods: Leoric's Hunting Grounds: Pony Land:
Area's cleared: Weeping Hollow: The Lyceum: Cathedral level 1/2: MUCH SHORTER
Area's cleared: Black Canyon Mines: Dahlgur Oasis: Desolate Sands: Vile Cavern's:
Anyhow, please stop by guys! I'll be doing more Vid's soon! I did make a Video about my IRL issues as well so people know I'm not "Zilian-ing"it up. Thanks everyone ! (Also, please don't just come on here to yell about Multiboxing etc.. Trying to help people here and I'm not botting.)

It's called multiboxing and it's the best way they could have done the video.
Um... This was used with Isboxer/Multiboxing and yes at times I had to stand still on one and get the other character into the correct position to try to even them out.. Nothing is skewed by me standing in a spot.. Trying to balance 2 characters in AT THE SAME TIME, on TWO different SERVERS, is not exactly easy... Nor is my gear very good at all..
These test results were for 1 run of each area, again nothing is skewed by me standing still.. These were not timed. At the end of the run I counted from my profile on kills and I covered as much area as I could...
Unless there's something I am misunderstanding from what your explaining... The results are as they stand, and yes I did spend a lot of time doing this. I will be doing more with more results as well, like elite count. AGAIN though, understand that these characters were played at the SAME time, on one screen, but different servers
@Vaelflare Thank you, my apologies! I'll be doing more soon!
@Eratosthenes Thanks as well! You fully understand how the multiboxing worked with this. I certainly did not want to just record 2 separate screens at different times.

I'm sure the reason this was posted in General instead of Gameplay and Videos is because no one will EVER see this thread in that (or this, if the topic is already moved) section.
Oh well, a good topic gone to waste *shrug*
I hope that's sarcasm. L2Read. Right side is 1.08 PTR, ie. more monsters on the right.~ACT 1~
@ZzezZ Thanks a ton for the support :P Yea always forget this thread is here.. Plus yea no one comes here.... I'll add more info next time and such and maybe they wont move it ;p
@Darkness Yea Left side of the screen is LIVE 1.07 Server and Right is PTR 1.08. They are played at the exact same time.
Yeah, I wouldn't have saw it, but thankfully I follow Blizz Employee posts so was led here by the tracker. Well done on the video's. I agree multi-boxing was the best way to show the difference between the two(No matter how much I actually dislike multi-boxing). Nice video's. I don't play PTR since I'm recently restarting and need to spend time re leveling chars, so it's nice to see the changes.
I still can't believe multiple people said these video's were a scam instead of just noticing how it was recorded. Epic face palm.

Interesting videos and an excellent use for multiboxing. I have to say that, at least visually, the A1 changes are fairly underwhelming. Fields of Misery has a nice bump, though.
The A2 changes definitely looked more significant overall. WOW at Dahlgur Oasis, it is so much better. Black Canyon Mines wasn't too bad before but that looks better too. Is it just me, or did it seem like equal, if not more mobs in Desolate Sands? That area was very underwhelming.
I hope there will be more changes before the patch goes live. This comparison is definitely showing some nice changes but even more areas that need work.

@TheMaster627 and @Hythloth- Thanks for the support! It was a somewhat crude count of monsters but fairly informative I thought. I will do more and get better results with more info about elites and Act 4 specifically.
Feel free to post any thoughts or ideas! Hoping I can really start helping the Diablo community once more! I did have a laugh at the "scam and Biased" reply's lol.. I just marked em as trolls ;P
your point mob density doesn't increase in mp1 in 1.07 as far as I know
edit these vids make me sad needs to be more monsters imo (plus more elites)
good work thou

@lyrical-I'll look into the vid again I may have opps and added the wrong Vid section while working on these... Been doing this for awhile now.... My apologies if I did.
@baggins-As far as I've seen/heard MP1-10 has the same density atm. Although a cool idea would be to have MP affect how much density there is. I'll also look into this more :)
