Diablo III Hotfixes

The list of Diablo III Hotfixes reflects a couple of bug fixes that went live a couple of days ago in Blizzard's action/RPG sequel:

  • Players can no longer gain achievements they have not earned by joining a Public Game with someone who has earned those achievements
  • Monks can no longer infinitely stack the damage buff from Combination Strike by changing weapons.

Some of the complaints of the game I get - but most of them are though people never played D2, and forget that they had to play THOUSANDS of hours to get the gear they want - and are now crying at 100 hours of D3....

The console games have made you think that you don't need to play a game more than 1x through....

Eh I can't agree with that, seems like just selectively reading what you want to from peoples comments. It's not just about how long it takes to obtain it, its about how its obtained and the quality of the loot itself.

Also no you didn't have to play thousands of hours with D2 to get loot you can use, that's a fallacy. There is a ton of amazing low level loot in Diablo 2, in fact quite a few builds are arranged around low level items. Diablo 2 was great because you're always getting cool stuff, it didn't entirely revolve around an end game like an MMO or something. There were a shitload of low level sets, uniques and other things like gambling and so on, that's without going into the games quests which had better rewards like skill points and so on. In fact quite a number of people NEVER hit the level cap in Diablo 2 but still had a great time playing because it was a good game at all level ranges.

As someone else said, for every addition to this game they removed some important nuance from Diablo 2 and nowhere is that more apparent than loot collection. It's not like its an unfixable disaster or something, it's a good but flawed game much like D2 was at release. Maybe they will flesh it out and fix things up but I think peoples complaints are pretty justified.
