4d Made Brawling accessible like Challenge Rift Yup, instead of creating public game or invite people to join your brawling, make it like Challenge Rift, where you can join Brawling game thru in-game GAME SETTING, and at the same time, make it a DEATH MATCH for 8 maximum players. If you guys have difficulty to handle the one-shot mechanic, just do it like what other mobile ARPG game did with their pvp by multiplying x20 to your character HP and reduce enemy damage by 99%, and also, disable the life regen power in Brawling mode. You could even add a neutral turret or trap or monsters for more flavor.Kilometer2 4d
5d D3 pvp will never happen because... ...of the ridiculous damage modifiers on gear. And now these modifiers have creeped over to World of Warcraft. Rogues can one shot even tanks with the right legendaries. In D3 the damage modifiers make your dps into the trillions per second. It hurt D3 and it has ruined World pvp in WoW. They all need to be sub 10% imo. Blizzard needs to be conservative with its damage numbers.Joltacks11 5d
5d Brawling forum?! :-o First time I notice this forum wow! People are actually brawling? Never did it, anyone wanna brawl? How long can a brawl go and be interesting? 10 seconds? 1 minute? 10 minutes?Lloyd3 5d
Sep 15 Blizzard we need competitive side to the game (end game Bounties , Grifts , normal rifts are not end game. When I bought Diablo 3 they said they going to deliver a working pvp . I cannot believe that after 4 years its still not here. Every season Is ok I guess for like few days . We need something competitive to make it actually worth farming. The idea to farm in order to farm is wrong . I want to farm good items for a reason not just to kill NPC's (AI ) . Games like Dota , CS GO and any sport is repetitive but the reason they so good it is because people can beat other people and actually show that they are better. We need some kind of competitive side . I mean Blizzard create Star Craft I mean come on guys you can deliver . 4 years and no one from the dev doesn't want to take the challenge ? why ?DragonLight31 Sep 15
Sep 12 Where is D3 PVP Arena? Four years ago you guys promissed us this: Where is it? I can't find. Will you make me buy ANOTHER xpansion to have this feature?Hanner88 Sep 12
Sep 4 2 VS 2 PVP Arena Why did Blizzard decided to scrap this mode? This is exactly the kind of end-game activity D3 has been missing.tomwi659 Sep 4
Sep 3 Please do something for PvP I played D2 for 8ish years off and on, what kept me willing to login every 90 days to keep my account alive was PvP. Running Baals/Chaos for items was not the long term entertainment. Trade was another aspect that kept me around but I can't say I miss spamming channels or going into games saying "WUG WUG WUG?" or posting on forums. When this game was announced it displayed an arena type mode. When the game was released it was clear that PvP was not going to be viable. When RoS was announced it was understood that the expansion in combination with the AH closing was solely in an effort to fix the abysmally boring PvE/Base game. RoS succeeded in that respect. With the closing cut scene in RoS another Diablo expansion is hinted. I find myself returning every 2 seasons or so to play..some people play constantly to top the leader board every season. PvE has been entertained. I post this hoping a dev or intern or someone sees it and passes it along..we could really use a PvP revamp. With the way the game and items are set up it is going to require a "PvP penalty" to stats/percents/skills to be viable and not a one shot fest as brawling currently is. Perhaps even a totally different type of gear as well, a new stat related solely to PvP or something. The point I am making is that PvE has had a constant flow of development while PvP was given a really poor "arena" with absolutely zero care taken into the idea and was pushed just in hopes of shutting people up about no PvP. Every season new items are introduced, adjustments are made and soon we will be getting the Necro class..I sincerely hope the Diablo team considers doing something MAJOR for would bring a big breath of life to the game for those people like me who simply see no long term goal in constantly moving up in GRifts and nothing more. RoS makes me feel like I am playing my class finally. PvE progression feels good but beating up on high tier monsters doesn't bring the same joy as beating up players. This would be no easy task and I am not expecting perfect balance but at the moment its just simply dumb, lackluster, lazy and disappointing much like the vanilla game's PvE, would be nice if you guys set out to fix this and make PvP an entertaining aspect of the game finally.Rot10 Sep 3
Aug 19 So getting one shotted is dueling? Really? I am so disappoint.mercilessdv8296 Aug 19
Aug 18 Hostile Mode (from d2) Does anyone remember this scary pvp feature that gave oh so many noobs the chills back in the day, and who thinks the devs should bring it back to d3?!!??!?!?!nibz3 Aug 18

Jul 25 Whatever happened to PVP? I remember watching early videos before the game was released and they featured 2v2 matches and such, wtf happened to the pvp for this game? Anyone know?Microblast42 Jul 25
Jul 24 PvP [Yes, I am still talking about it!!!] I am fully aware that I am beating a dead horse bringing up this topic, but I mean come on Blizzard... you have now released your second major content expansion to D3, and we still don’t have a real player versus player combat system? It is 2017, computer games these days have PvP interaction. They just do. Especially fantasy style character progression RPGs like Diablo. People want it, so why can't we have it? Diablo III was released in May of 2012, making it more than a 5-year-old game now. I find it very interesting that the first glimpse we got of the game, back at Blizzcon in 2010, was that short clip of a 2v2 arena match, that everyone did all those shout-casting commentator videos on. Yet that game mode (which looked and still looks incredibly fun!) still has not been implemented? Okay, so people say... Once you reach level cap, your character does so much damage, that everyone would one-shot each other and it wouldn't be fun at all; PvP combat would be incredibly unbalanced!! This isn’t even a good point. Obviously, PvP would be a separate implementation to the game (just like seasons is a separate game mode). Once a player has played through the normal story mode, and reached level cap, give them the option to create PvP-only characters (just like seasons). These characters would have a totally separate set of items from the ones in the story mode (just like seasons). Developers would be able to modify the base stats of all the classes, as well as all the items, spells, and abilities in this game mode and balance them for PvP. These characters would never even set foot in the normal game world. Blizzard could easily implement some kind of match-making system (like they have in pretty much all their other titles) for individuals and parties alike. PvP wouldn’t need to be restricted to just an arena style game mode, but could also include a battleground system featuring maps for point control, capture the flag, etc. This would add countless hours of replayability to the game, which is something that the D3 community is desperately starving for. At the end of the day Blizzard is a company, that needs to turn a profit. Therefore, their resources are invested more into games like World of Warcraft and Overwatch, and less into Diablo III. Well, first of all, they are clearly still investing resources into D3, since they just released a new expansion. But more importantly, the way I see it, introducing a real PvP system to D3 would result in old players coming back, which would in turn bring in new players (veteran players always bring their RL/in-game friends to new games they are playing), which would snowball into more and more players. You don’t need to be a math-wiz to solve this simple equation; more players = more money. I remember some people used to theorize that Blizzard didn’t want to implement a real PvP system into D3 because they didn’t want to take away from the possible player base for the upcoming release of Heroes of the Storm. This really doesn’t make a lot of sense to me for a number of reasons, but Heroes has been out for just over 2 years now, and we still don’t have an actual PvP system in D3. Anyways, I could sit here and rant about this all day, but it will only fall on deaf ears. I love D3; I think Blizzard did an amazing job with this game. But it needs, and honestly, deserves a real PvP system. The mechanics, art style, optimization, wide range of abilities and character archetypes, etc. found in Diablo III make it the perfect candidate for an epic and extremely entertaining PvP experience. Please Blizzard, PLEASE give us PvP! PS: You’ll notice that I frequently said “real PvP” I just want to be clear that we all (including the development team at Blizz) know that Brawling is just a joke.Aeohrta5 Jul 24
Jul 20 PvP rifts Well i just had an idea. Wouldnt it be cool to play a pvp rift? 2 parties of 4 vs eachother and agressive mobs. You cant kill your teammates ofcourse. Killing mobs grants points. Killing other players grants bonus points. First team to reach a certain score wins, the other party is rejected. Winning team get to fight the boss. Or to be more fair, both teams get their own boss but winning team get better/more loot? Or the possibility to upgrade legendary gems? First thing would be to fix pvp though. Put a cap to Player vs player damage or something. Thoughts?Jerka3 Jul 20
Jul 20 Go back to WoW if you want pvp Some day maybe in D4, but honestly, if you don't like D3 as it is right now, you need to realize this is not the game for you. Come back in a couple years.Bacon4 Jul 20
Jul 19 Noobs complain about pvp These Ppl complaining about pvp don't play D3 regulary but then come cry about pvp in forums. They are the same unhappy ppl that are always complaining in wow pvp forums. You need help! You just bought the necro and now you feel you have the right to make our lives miserable with your wining.Bacon5 Jul 19
Jul 9 Brawling should drop bloodshards Just as a minor diversion to the grind, I think it may be fun if every kill you make while brawling rewarded x bloodshards. Obviously this number should be lower than how many you can farm rifting/grifting per hour but it could be neat?Beau0 Jul 9
Jul 8 There are tons of pvp games There are tons of pvp games out there. You want pvp go play wow.Bacon0 Jul 8
Jul 8 So let me get this straight.. 2008. We are shown "Diablo 3". Monsters climbing walls, your character climbing ladders and doing things and stuff which apparently was all a script sequence of lies to make it look better than it was.. We are shown an arena and PvP....... 2012 D3 launches. Inferno mode.."WE DOUBLED IT WITHOUT EVEN TESTING IT!" We now have a Pay 2 Progress game with no PvP even though PvP is on the box sitting in my closet.Item drops are controlled by the RMAH/AH. All the items ABSOLUTELY SUCK. 2013..we get "cool looking items" with no effects still and "paragon". Game still sucks AH still rules. 2014..RoS guy guy seems cool..he wants stronk items and smash demons with power..he also convinces blizz to shut down the AH. A step in the right direction Now..2015..Diablo 3 is shoved into a small corner at blizzcon, barely mentioned..we have some patch content coming up which is not what I personally was looking forward to..the step in the right direction has seemed to come to a halt as this game is still a PvE leaderboard. We have an absolute rampant amount of botting going on which doesn't really matter as trade is dead. And we still have no PvP. So..that game you guys showed us in 2008..with the cool runes and environmental interactables and explosions and PvP..where is that game ?? What exactly did you sell us ? I bought this game entirely for the PvP that was advertised to me so excuse me if I seem rude but I believe that falls under false advertisement as its been three years and this "arena" that was shown to us in 2008 is still non existent and no mentions of it. What exactly am I playing for ? Loot to kill monsters faster to get more useless loot which I can never use in a balanced PvP arena ? Only in stupid 1 click kill brawling ? The disappointment I feel is not easily put into words.Rot88 Jul 8
Jul 5 PVP Matchmaking The developers need to make a matchmaking system so that we can actually brawl on demand, we just click a button and now were locked into a fight. There will be problems but my point is that they need to do something about it. The first step the developers need to take to make pvp better is to add a matchmaking system for it.Thrall2 Jul 5
Jun 30 Changes To PvP Search Mechanic Hi, This thread offers some feedback towards the current search mechanic of finding a pvp match, which is currently the worst search mechanic in any game ever. Finding a PvP room easily --------------------------------- At the character screen and in a private game make a button to que for pvp brawl. When the player found one he/she gets loaded into the training grounds, together with other players that que'd for it. If no one is que'ing you create a PvP Room automatically just like it is now with PvE rooms. When you press the 'New Tristam' portal you get loaded out into your character screen or private game (wherever you last where and que'd for pvp). Hostile Button ------------------- In the 'Game Settings' menu on the character screen create a button 'Allow Hostility' (just above the 'multiplayer' settings). This allows the player to go hostile towards his fellow players that he join(ed)(s) in the room he is searching for in whatever which category (bounties, rift, grift, keywarden (the brawl tab gets removed of course). If this option isn't selected he will only find rooms where there is no option to go hostile. When the player enters a room with hostility allowed he then needs to go to the esc screen where he can select to go hostile. Which means he can attack whoever he wants. This gets displayed on his portrait (maybe a new image per role to show hostility would be a cool idea). However, if (for example) he alone went hostile every other member can attack that hostile player and NOT damage the other players that DIN'T choose to go hostile. I am convinced these two changes (or one of them) would significantly increase the rate of finding a pvp scenario. Unimportant part: The reason why i make this thread is because I've been playing the game (on and off) since the removal of the Acution House. Since then I haven't been able to find one brawl room where someone is actually brawling or willing to. Again, I am sure with these two reasonable mentioned changes above will be a big increase in pvp duels and overall Diablo 3 popularity. The addition of the Armory allowing the option to min max builds towards pvp is bigger then ever. Kind Regards, Rekkn_Rekkn0 Jun 30
Jun 30 What kind of PvP modes would you like to see? Thinking toward the future of PvP in Diablo 3, what kind of approach would you like to see the game take? I personally would like to see some team versus team aspect. Also I'm wondering if maybe we could see some scaling system as well. What do you think?Profits0 Jun 30
Jun 25 Let's Brawl I have tried to lure players into a Brawling Game and I can't get anyone to bite. Blizzard has to start promoting The Brawling mode or get rid of it all together.Taxfree9421 Jun 25
Jun 23 Team PVP battles please Brawling is what it is, I would love to have team (or 1v1) PVP battles that have nothing to do with my party. I think it would be a lot of fun for many people if we could have team vs team pvp battles. 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, 5v5, or some combo thereof.Restomagus0 Jun 23
Jun 21 This is very sad I just started playing during WoW maint. after the game disgusted me first time around and it is much better, enjoying story & leveling my wizard solo until I beat it. I like the ease of crafting and getting legendaries right from the get go, makes it a lil exciting. But I just know the pve will get boring and when that happens I always turn to pvp. How the fk can you have a Diablo game without some epic pvp? Would be nice at least if Blizz said they will take another look at it in 1 year..2...3... so I know when to start playing again? I am gonna finish story so I don't completely regret buying this game but I can definitely say it wasn't worth the money considering how legendary the previous games are and how many countless hours I spent in the blood moor or pking chaos / baal runs that !@#$ never got old!Rukia0 Jun 21
Jun 15 12/27/2012 Brawling used to have a decent community of cool players, albeit pretty small. Still had fun, some things for sure were OP, but there were still ways to get some kills regardless. The hope of real PVP seemed to die when Jay took off. Maybe D4 will be the return of this hope… There is so much potential for a good PVP system here, its sad to see it promised 4+ yrs ago, then dropped like a rock for what would seem Heros o Storm cash cow. Hell even though we were promised some real Diablo PVP for free, at this point Im more than willing to pay for it, but not some Heros o storm version... This was the last hope we had for it, almost 4yrs ago now, sad. 12/27/2012 Back to the future, from Jay: Hey everyone, The development team has been working really hard on the features, content, and systems for PvP in Diablo III and I wanted to take some time to give an update on where we're at. Of course, our goal has been to releafse our Team Deathmatch mode as soon as possible, but we don't want to put anything out there before it's ready. Right now, Team Deathmatch isn't yet where we want it to be, so I want to provide some insight into where we are at in the development process. The State of PvP Our original intent with PvP for Diablo III was to provide more formal support for the dueling community that existed in Diablo II. We wanted to give players some kind of structure that would not only make it easier for you to duel with one another, but also allow you to have duels that were team-based. This is how our Team Deathmatch mode emerged, and it's been instrumental in making a lot of improvements to Diablo III. But in continuing to develop this mode, playtest it, and put it in front of other developers within the company, we've found that it falls short of our expectations for a high-quality Blizzard experience. Putting people into an arena and letting them hurl fireballs and swing crazy-!@# swords at one another always has an element of fun to it. I imagine it's no surprise to anyone reading this blog that people like battling each other in video games, so if you had the chance to play our Team Deathmatch at one of the BlizzCons where we featured it you might not understand why we'd say that we don’t feel the current mode is good enough. Well, Here's Why… For us it comes to a few issues, one of which is depth. Simply fighting each other with no other objectives or choices to make gets old relatively quickly. We've brought a lot of people in to try out Team Deathmatch and, while some found it entertaining, most of our testers didn't feel like it was something they'd want to do beyond a few hours. Without more varied objectives, or very lucrative rewards, few saw our current iteration as something they'd want spend a lot of time in. Another is class balance. Like Diablo II, Diablo III was designed to be a PvE-first kind of game, where we never compromised on player abilities in the name of future PvP balance. We want to be able to carry over as many of the crazy runes, items, and skills as possible, with their crazy effects, and alter them as little as possible. In a casual PvP mode, something equivalent to a WoW Battleground, this would be fine, but Team Deathmatch felt very hardcore, and it put a laser focus on class balance in a way that we didn’t think would be good for the game as a whole. Certainly, we've gotten a lot of benefits from the development of Team Deathmatch, especially in the areas of controls and combat model tuning, but at this point we don't believe it's the experience we feel it needs to be in order to ship, so we will be shelving it for now and exploring other options. What's Next So, our core problem is that our Team Deathmatch mode doesn't feel like a great addition to Diablo III. It's not up to the quality that Blizzard gamers expect or that we feel you deserve, and it doesn't really fit with our goals for the rest of the game. The question now is what are we going to do about it? First and foremost, if our original goal was to support dueling, then we're not achieving that goal very well if we don’t actually give players a way to duel in-game. You’ve been asking us for dueling for a while, so we're going to add it to the game soon. Dueling is currently scheduled to release with patch 1.0.7, which is set to hit sometime after the new year. (We'll be providing details about that feature very soon, so stay tuned.) But as I mentioned before, we are going back to the drawing board on a new replacement for Team Deathmatch, something that feels more appropriate for Diablo III. And as we stated previously, regardless of when we release it, it'll be a free addition to the game. Team Deathmatch provided us with the foundation that we needed and served us well. Hell, it may even still be added in some form in the future. For now, though, we're going to first be looking at new modes that play up to the strengths of the character classes, focus on objectives beyond just defeating other players, and possibly even integrate PvE elements and rewards. Keepin' It Real We wanted to be upfront and honest with the community about where this particular project is at. It's certainly not ideal, and I know some of you got to play Team Deathmatch at BlizzCon and are probably thinking, "It seemed good enough! Just give us that." I also know how I feel whenever a game or game feature I'm looking forward to is delayed, but, as with all things Blizzard, we want to be sure that the features we add to Diablo III are actually worth it and will make the game better, and PvP is no exception. While we don't have any further information to share right now about our plans for additional PvP modes, we really look forward to posting more about dueling in the next few days. --JayBraveSirRobn0 Jun 15
Jun 11 Brawling advice for Blizz One thing I've always read about and can completely agree on is that Brawling is boring. The complaints I am gathering are the unbalance of classes, the one shot by anything decently geared, and no scoring. unbalance of classes & one shot by anything: easily solved by a balanced gear stat maximum when joining brawls. For instance, the same way they do with WoW. A system similar to iLvl and some sort of token for playing the different seasons. This obviously will solve the one shot by anything issue. scoring: Just add a damage/kills/assist/death scoreboard somewhere. Easily solved. That allows D3 players that bragging experience that players had when dueling in D2. The ish talking back in forth in duels in D2 is what made it popular and very memorable. Having a scoreboard in brawls brings back that experience with allowing players to go into a brawl match and take over the game scoring 20 kills and 3 deaths. While many others may show a scoring of 6 kills and 15 deaths. They will most likely leave the game and grab another character to join back in and start over with a new score that is less embarrassing with hopes to return the punishment. If you won't do it for the wide base of PvP players that would love a balanced brawl in D3 then do it for yourself. The amount of people that would come back to play D3 is huge if they could somehow play a more competitive brawl. That's more money for you and a greater experience playing D3 for us, the fans of missed potential. I think obviously if you take any of my advice or those that comment below then you will do it justice and much better than we can describe. Thank you for reading.HOOSERDADDY0 Jun 11
Jun 10 PVPVE suggestion (Greater rift trials pvp) In the old wc3 you had a map where you had to build a maze in one lane that were ~8 blocks wide. If a unit passed through your lane alive, you lost 1 life. When you killed a creep you gained gold equal to the creeps value. sheep was 1 gold. You could then use the gold to either build/upgrade or send creeps to other lanes. In diablo 3 the hero could be placed in a lane and when you die you have lost. Units drop gold and gold could be used to send creeps to other lanes. There would need to be a reason why you would have to kill the mobs, so everyone dont use extreme tank builds to win. Basicly this is greater rift trials in a pvp setting. Make a leaderboard and some rewards for winning(for example loot so people can farm this gamemode for better gear).R34C710NM57R0 Jun 10
May 23 Another look at PVP now that sets rule all? Build diversity is almost non-existant now due to set power, and the main factor holding the team back from coming up with a PVP solution was the fact that this game is based on RNG and a competitive pvp environment calls for a balanced, even playing field. D3 still has an RNG component, but when it comes to classes and builds, they are almost identical. They could simply let us gear ourselves in full primal versions of sets for PVP if they really want a true even playing field, but I still think it would be more fun using our own gear.RDS1 May 23
May 19 How do you put PvP in diablo Without making it a moba? Because all the click to move/5 button games I know of are mobas (league, hots, etc) and then there's the big issue of how you balance it, considering most diablo players can do dps equal to their health pool maybe make it grift style, and the first person to complete the rift wins? and there could be "debuff" shrines that debuff the enemy player (decrease in movement speed,damage, etc)Daily33 May 19
May 15 Brawling With White Gear Only Anyone tried this? Does it make more of a fair fight?Thanatos2 May 15
May 8 Can someone please, for the love of God... tell me what is this part of the Forums about? Why not sincerely, out of respect to the players who were exited about a PVP that never came out or are still waiting for one, just remove this part of the Forum area. I am not even counting on a PVP for this game and I still feel laughed at scrolling through the Forum area and looking at the "Brawling" section. I am just like.....Dafek!Theudys3 May 8
Apr 23 D3 seems boring with no competitive PvP Many will disagree with the statement in subject line but for me as a primary PvP player, I feel that Diablo 3 could have been an amazing PvP driven game, if they stuck with it.. If you think about it... why would they add PvP and go through all the trouble at this stage of the games life? The best Blizzard games have competitive PvP in them and they also create more revenue for Blizz: SC2 amazing game even the PvE part. Heroes - amazing game for group pvp Hearthstone- Amazing 1v1 and takes alot of skill Overwatch - amazing dynamics when it comes to the different classes D3 - D3 has amazing graphics for a dungeon crawler and the combat is very nice but that imo doesn't make a good game.. I know this with just brawling for PvP it really gets stale fast unless you play with friends. Now you will say...Oh did you triumph Torment 10 and have all end game gear? What's the point? Seasons are just a major time sync filled with bots...I hate to fume on here but I just need to speak my mind about it... Overwatch will be coming out soon and that will be fun. Why? I played the Beta and never wanted it to end it was so much fun.. It really saddens me about D3 because I've been playing Blizz games since Diablo 1. They got it right with D2 in so many ways.. D2 felt challenging, you had to watch your back at all times from Pk'ers,, Trading meant something..Heck I even liked hanging out in the old bnet channels they had setup for d2.. On a positive note..I know the devs work extremely hard on seasons and the game is PvE focus 100% but for us that like to PvP you have to agree that D3 could of been so much more. Thanks for reading.Purist162016 Apr 23

This allows the player to go hostile towards his fellow players that he join(ed)(s) in the room he is searching for in whatever which category (bounties, rift, grift, keywarden (the brawl tab gets removed ofcourse). If this option isnt selected he will only find rooms where there is no option to go hostile. When the player enters a room with hostility allowed he then needs to go to the esc screen where he can select to go hostile. Which means he can attack whoever he wants. This gets displayed on his portrait (maybe a new image per role to show hostility would be a cool idea). However, if (for example) he alone went hostile every other member can attack that hostile player and NOT damage the other players that DIN'T choose to go hostile. I am convinced these two changes (or one of them) would significantly increase the rate of finding a pvp scenario. Unimportant part: The reason why i make this thread is because i've been playing the game (on and off) since the removal of the Acution House. Since then i havent been able to find one brawl room where someone is actually brawling or willing to. Again, i am sure with these two reasonable mentioned changes above there will be a big increase in pvp duels. The addition of the Armory allowing the option to min max builds towards pvp is bigger then ever. Kind Regards, Rekkn_Rekkn0 Apr 21
Apr 16 Would love to see a MOBA style map for PVP I'm sure this has been brought up before, but I think aside from something akin to CTF, a great PVP mode would be something based on a MOBA map, with lanes and towers to destroy. They could use in-game assets like the lightning pillar for towers and for creeps. Experience from killing creeps could translate into your character going from level 1-20, with each level granting an extra X% to your stats, with level 1 being your heroes regular stats. I think a key part would be retaining your heroes identity/abilities, and not having it reduced down to a "template" to ensure an even playing field. The only complex thing I see would be matchmaking... ie. you don't want to go up against someone in full ancient gear if you don't have any. I think this wouldRDS2 Apr 16
Apr 11 quick fix for brawling Disabling all set and legendary powers, debuffing all skills allowing only weapon damage to matter. Allowing for basically some form of hand to hand combat based on weapon damage and armor. Removing all loh and life regen. Disable paragon. No potions or only 1 potion. Ranged toons are returned 50% more damage reduction to par up with the brutes. Maybe even making it worth while, the loser drops a tiny bit of gold. I'd much rather have it be an ear but beggars can't be choosers. This could even be a cheap way to share gold with newbs who need it. It's account bound so it wouldn't be going anywhere else but shens, haedrigs, myriams or oreks pocket. Does orek even have pockets?Exodus8 Apr 11
Mar 28 Let's make brawling part of diablo 3 Currently on PTR we can check out the new armory. This armory allows us to save certain builds for your characters and name them. In other words: this allows us to save a pvp build for our favorite classes and switch to our pvp build in a second. I propose that everyone who loves pvp creates / joins brawling games more often than we do now. If enough people brawl in public games, it can become a part of diablo 3. And don't forget, you don't have to wait for people to join, you can just create a new brawling game, complete some greater rifts in your PvE build, and switch to your PvP build if someone joins. Only thing we need are: 1. some standardized rules on what you may use in public brawling. For instance: Only rare items + normal gems are allowed. 2. One difficulty level where most of the brawl games should be created so everyone can find eachother more easily. I vote for Torment I.FinKingma2 Mar 28
Mar 24 Invasion as a new PvP mechanic Can we "borrow" a dark souls themed PvP mechanic where you can "invade" other's games as an enemy with rewards for killing other players? Obviously Greater Rifts would not be an invasion target. While we are at it, PvP would need a damage reduction so it isn't Almost ALWAYS who hits who first. This would be a really fun mechanic!Mathyas1 Mar 24

Mar 24 Normalized PVP in Diablo 3 Diablo is all about items.. sure is! However, it's clear that PVP is pretty much useless the way it is unless they put countless months into balancing which clearly they won't. So this brings up to the point of: Would you play a normalized stats/damage version of PVP in Diablo 3. Basically it's really down to all having the same damage output and stats. It would be based on choosing your skills and use tactics to defeat the enemies. the rewards would be resources that is already being used in high end crafting of items in Diablo 3 and other transmog items. it's the way Overwatch works(in terms that everyone has the same heroes and damage output/etc.), it's the way the new WoW PVP works and I think that game mode would be very popular in actually seeing who is the better player. I think the only downside is the players who wish to one shot kill people cause it makes them feel like they are better even though if you switch the items around, you'd be getting wrecked without a doubt.BADD4 Mar 24
Mar 22 Pvp Proposal "Why Not" Devs, A main aspect of the game that is missing that would help players come back. Inviting back nostalgia and creating new additions to franchise memory. PVP. Events. Overwatch innovations. Fight Night in D3 livestreams. Team battle: Solo Combat: Battle Royale: What is stopping you? Balance>Gear> or funding? "solvable problems are problems solvable given motivation" i would pay for a real addition of PVP content similar to DLC "necro xpac". Add a character to help the sale....pss " druid or amazon,fallen angels" sstt Ranking system, Season ladders. Different bonus abilities of old sets for pvp season! Or New ones farmed though playing. Overwatch sees success in its format that could help broaden gameplay for players. WoW,Overwatch. Do this greatly. Include Diablo 3 PVP events at the Blizzcon . Please read this/edit . Send it to those who can make the proposal. Think big. We are Diablo players! Yes i know you guys play *point and wink* Thank youArchKnightz2 Mar 22
Mar 18 PvP fix Since damage numbers are so bloated, just make it so people won't get one shot. For example, you enter brawling ground for 1 minute, whoever damage the other player the most (have a meter) when the timer end wins! And you don't die in brawling ground.parsonli9 Mar 18
Mar 17 Survey: Would you play a balanced D3 PvP ? This is just a survey to check the amount of people would like or not to have this feature. Do you agree with a nice PvP for Diablo 3 ? Yes Answer: Just thumb up and post yes to keep post fresh and if you wish you can post why you would like. No Answer:Just thumb down and post no to keep post fresh and if you wish you can post why you would not like. This is just to make one pre-liminar statistic from Forum to check what players think about it. A lot people state D3 players would not like to have a nice PvP and they say PvP community is zero. So to check a real minor statistic this survey is being made.PardalBR12 Mar 17
Mar 15 Woah people are in this section? I was very surprised to see so many posts in brawling. It is NOT going to be even close to what it was for D2... it cant.. the damage dealt compared to defensive capabilities are way higher in D3... i haven't played a brawl in forever, but if i had to guess, it's a game of who can one shot the other the fastest?BBopMcJiggy3 Mar 15
Feb 24 PvP - Players upgrade mobs for other players I don't know if it's a good idea, or if it could even be done but I think it would be awesome to have the option to upgrade the mobs for your friends/other players, to make it more challenging. If it could be done, have the option for players to enable "PvP - Player Mob Upgrades" or not to and play just the regular PvE. I hope this makes sense. The idea is in no way completely thought out, but I think it could be a good addition to the game so I thought I'd share it and see what everyone else thinks.SkyGod3 Feb 24
Feb 14 looking for people to PvP hi everyone ! i am looking for some people to pvp with, here is the concept : -yellow gears -regular gems ( not legendaries ) -no paragon points -kanai's cube its no longer a 1 hit kill but becomes an actual exchange of hits before someone actually dies which is a much bigger improvement. i'm simply looking for something different to do then just doing rifts and mess around with build that wouldn't be viable normally and use different skills. anyone would like to give it a try as well ?MySelf21 Feb 14
