Didn't this game JUST get released?
Have you ever heard of the show Extra Credits by any chance? It is a web series based on various aspects of gaming. They had a show recently about DLC for Mass Effect that had some interesting things to say about when it is most effective for it to be released. The data they are basing this off of is for consoles, but I think it is probably pretty close to PCs as well. Basically, they say that DLC is most effective the closer to the launch of the game, falling off after 3 months or so. I would be willing to bet that the interest curve is longer for PC users considering that they play their games a lot more than console users, but I still think it is applicable.

Here is the episode in question if you are interested:

The graph I was referring to is at 1.01, by the way.

The last time I played the only thing that interested me was pvp, and I started getting disconnected from battlegrounds multiple times a game. Having to put the authenticator number every time was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I am sure they made it so that you don't have to put in the number every time now like it is with d3, but that ungulate will never walk again.

I just got a trojan warning for attempting to go to the second website listed.

Fair warning.

Edit: Weird and I tried again and no warning from ESET.

this additional measure will help us further preserve and protect the integrity of the game and economy in between ban waves.
The integrity of the game and economy has already been completely and utterly boned by the flood of gold farmed by bots.

I am starting to suspect that Peter Jackson has a Hobbit footage fetish.

This morning, I picked up a lvl 51 ring, with 21minutes remaining in the auction, that I know was worth over 20 million gold along everyone elses up above, and I won it for 25 thousand gold. this ring alone will make my hell game playable, (100 STR, 120 VIT, Attack speed 6% , crit chance 4%, socketable)

Thats a killer ring, man. Grats on getting that.

I have seen auctions for 0.0 before. Didn't bid on them, because I strictly sell on the RMAH and they looked fishy.

I am enjoying this game a lot and looking forward to this patch. Blizzard will get their shit together eventually, it will just take time.

That being said, 1.03 introduced some pretty horrible stuttering loading lag on movement for me and I would appreciate it if they got around to fixing that sooner rather than later.

I am very much hoping they tidied up the rounds. The game dawdled for quite a while after every input, and all that time added up.

Edit: Whoops, forgot to clarify I was talking about 2012 there, don't know anything about 2013 yet.

The mortar looking units fired straight up while their barrels were canted forward. Also without any recoil worked into the animation.

I enjoy diablo III a lot but one problem I have with it is that the champ packs in inferno tend to be more homogenized due to the combination of 4 abilities as opposed to 3 for hell, 2 for nightmare and so on. With less combinations possible, you see similar packs quite a bit.

Not sure if there is a solution to this problem, unfortunately.

You get a mob with ability combos like Jailer + Desecrator, or Fire Chains + Arcane Enchanted, and it's just instant death. I am still having a blast though.
Some of the mob combos seem reminiscent of Multi Shot Lightning Enchanted difficulty from Diablo II, giving me no small amount of trepidation about stepping into hardcore.

I encountered one champ pack who were innate closers, they would stick out what looked like a tongue, hit you with it and drag themselves to you, stunning you for a short time. These guys were also extremely fast and shot mortar rounds to boot.

Im pretty sure that lag accounts only for a small ammount of problems, why would the game engine stream data every few seconds (like when I throw out a chakram?) It makes no sense.

I have been throwing those things left and right with no slowdown. I do occasionally spike to ~700 ping though.

So to steer the discussion away from flamebait, what's everyone playing?
I'm psyched to play a Demon Hunter with all the homing rocket abilities I can pick. Games need more homing rockets/missiles, IMO.

And what do you say about response time? The monitor suggested previously in this thread has a 5ms response time.

I have found myself gravitating away from twitch games of late, but I am not ruling out getting back into them.

Is 5ms sufficient?
