Wizards can wield two weapons? Wow, I did not know that.

Sadly, the games sold 10+ million and 2+ million copies respectively.
Yes, this is the unfortuate/bad part. Even though they did make efforts to "fix" the game. They didn't really need to and there isn't much incentive for them to stop putting the ODRM into their games.

Do you like Pro basketball, Blue? Personally I greatly prefer the college game -- the pro game allows WAY TOO much contact, not to mention the three steps, no dribble, no travelling calls.

It's quite the event for my close friends. For the last 15 years or we have gotten together for this. It started out as a 34" Trinitron flat screen tube, two 27" tvs and a 24" monitor so we could be watching all 4 games simultaneously. Now we are up to a 65" plasma, two 55" images from projectors on the wall on both sides of the plasma and a 38" LCD. This first 4 day portion is the best, 12 hours a day of basketball, and more beer and snacks than we should really consume.

Yeah, there does seem to be some odd mechanics at work in certain situations, I suspect I need to waste some time to hunt down the ones impacting my characters...

Also it's not a single player game,
It's whatever you want it to be. If you want to play solo you can, if you want to play coop. you can. Regardless, the fact remains it shouldn't be necessary to be on-line for solo play. And I've not heard or seen an legitimate argument to indicate otherwise.

I would have been okay with them keeping the GAH. However, with them making the Set Items and Legendaries being BoA -- there really isn't much point is there.

I always thought the Irish would start complaining someday about a holiday center on them and drinking -- but to my knowledge that hasn't happened yet...

I never got very far into EQ...I remember I fell down this hole into a dungeon, and trying to find my way out, kept falling deeper and deeper. Finally gave up and never went back...
I never played EQ after hearing so many stories like this and the infamous "rat grinding". I'm sure it was better later, but I never got the taste for it. WoW would end up being my first MMO.

When they significantly increase the allowed size for a city I might, MIGHT, think about buying this.

I didn't even know such a beast existed, interesting. I'll have to look them up.

You only need 2 pages for stash now. Drops are so good you don't need to hold anything, maybe a few things. But 1 page dedicated to pages and unique items (foot, bell, etc), gems, and materials and 1 page for unique stuff. Everything prior to Loot 2.0 is garbage.
Well, you are right about previous loot beginning bait for enchanting materials. Which is only going to be repeated again when the expansion comes out. Everything you have now, will get replaced. However, if you build one of each character, and want different builds that require different gear -- which is kind of one of the main things about Diablo, right? Then there is not enough room for gear. Yes, if you pick a character and play it unendingly in the same way, the stash is big enough.

Now granted, I'm not out of space yet because I've only been playing for three week (as of today) and I only have two 60's each with only one build so far -- but I see the problem coming down the road. And as I said before, if PoE can literally have hundreds of tabs, Blizzard should be able to figure out how to charge me $20 for another one if I want it. If you don't want it, great!

Well, I crank up the difficulty, and don't think I have gone more than 30 minutes for a drop. Even got a couple in a very short time....Usually get 3-4 per ACT. Previous to Lot 2.0 - Maybe 1 every 40 hours.
So, you are playing what? Torment IV?

You'd think the money he could make off selling tabs would be even better -- but it hasn't happened.

Yeah, it was close for me. I get a fair amount of stuff from Amazon, but I usually get 3-5 day free shipping. I just added it up and I spent around $50 on shipping last year. So I'd have to double my orders for it to be worth it.

I read some where that the beta had five tabs, but Blizzard reduced it to three as a "performance enhancement". Supposedly the five tabs were using up too many resources -- which sounds like total bunk. Don't know if they actually said it, if they did and it's true it sounds like a really bad design problem.

So there's no sense loading it on new machines when it only has another 5 years of support left.
I'm certain the deadline for support on Win7 will get pushed back multiple times, as it did for Win XP.

Legendaries are dropping every few minutes, and almost all drops are for the character I am playing. I went through all of my gear and sold or salvaged.
Either RNG is being much kinder to you than to me, or this is an exaggeration. I'd say I average a Legendary every 60-90 minutes or so, although I haven't carefully timed it.

My biggest gripe so far -- the stash. Come on Blizzard, with PoE I can literally have hundreds of tabs. Let me buy some more tabs -- you like that micro-transaction stuff now.

117 hours in 2.5 weeks? Are you unemployed or something? Playing on the job? What's your secret?
Work full-time, but I am single. The 19 days covers three weekends, so figure 12 hours each Saturday and Sunday, that alone makes 72 hours. So that leaves only 4-5 hours a night on the weekdays...
