That's not a lot of money considering the length of time it takes to run both of those acts, the GPH is low to moderate.

It's all about finding optimized routes. There was a group of guys that posted an Act I route on Reddit the other day that my friend and I have been running as well. We tweaked it a little bit for ourselves (the guy was running a Wizard, my friend and I were doing it co-op with a tank barb and tank monk, so we cut out a couple spots that were too much time vs. reward), but we ended up with a ton of rares, a few upgrades between both of us, and about 200k gold an hour, which while isn't amazing GPH compared to pre-1.03, when you factor in the amount of items we got that were auctionable we made quite a bit more. It gets even easier and more efficient when you realize the maps have very little in terms of randomization, and you can begin to predict where caves and elites will spawn.

The bottom line is there is absolutely no point in the game where going to the AH is required. I have two characters in Act III Inferno right now, and I have never bought a single item off the AH. Everything I have I farmed myself or got it from a friend when we were playing a coop game. These people who think there is some sort of conspiracy with Blizzard purposely tweaking the drops and difficulty to force people into using the AH are just fucking ridiculous.

And those who think they did not purposely tweaking the drops are even more ridiculous , Clown

All in all the game is progressing in a good direction.

Have to completely disagree, I've quit after the fiasco that was patch 1.03.

They increased the feeling the game is like being at work, with grinding out less 'take home' gold due to excessive repair costs from wear and tear from mob killing. Pre-1.03, I might have had one drop that was better than what was on the AH. Then patch 1.03 lowered the drop rate of rare items as well, making it more likely you have to go to the AH for gear.

And with the RMAH opening, good gear started to shift over there. So pay-to-win for the RMAH and grind ever devaluing gold for the gold AH became the way Blizzard wanted us to play.

No thanks. I'm sure the player base is dropping like flies, and Diablo 4 is going to be a tough sell.

I got my 100+ hours out of Diablo 3 (stopped as a Barbarian on Inferno Act 3), but if I was to do it over again...I'd wait for a huge price discount on Diablo 3 since it has zero longevity.

I understand the bad feelings I really do, the DH and Barbarian really got hit the worst, but hey here is a patch which will lower the wear and tear costs and yet the high death penalty will remain (as it should be). In all other respects patch 1.03 is an improvement over what went before. The drop rates from champion and elite packs are higher than ever (I switch to MF gear and regularly get 3-4 yellows per elite pack)

I just dont get the boohooing over gold though. Thats the most fucked up subjective argument ever. So people were okay with items costing over 100Milion Gold??? Really? Gold was becoming so worthless because all the gold sinks in the game were shitty, and now that there is a valid and good gold sink people bitch yet again.

What a load of shit. Before 1.03 I knew that there was no hope for me to use the AH to buy a better bow, prices were inflating way faster than I could ever farm gold or loot, and now that they fixed this what? Boohoo some more? Fuck that.

How can you even defend this piece of " GOT YOU haha") crap! just look at what they sold to the gamers , how it all went down the BIIG hype maschine to get people to buy it , the failed try to hide the only reason they made this betacrap the noreply attitude they showend the eu forums the "do it your self" peps had to FIND out how to get the game going from other sites than blizzies
If this crap had been in beta still np with all the " Going in the right direction shit" but it was not sold as a beta nono full price full intended "low in stock" games so that they would get alot of att
The hole greasy way they went with this piece of crap just showed what they have become. " The prime evil them self"

Greedy bastards

I think you give them too much long term credit.

Well to be fair, their next product is, in all likelihood, a year or so out if you don't count the already shark-jumping Kung Fu Panda expansion for WoW. Considering that the blizzard fanbase has a memory span of a goldfish, there's no need to see what the impact of this game is going to be on the next. The same people bitching will be the same people pre-ordering with the next game.

PS: I called the farming racket shit, even when people on this board told me that it was impossible this time around.

you think...hmmm..mkay

I wish we had that kind of vision here in America. However, here innovation means "figure out new ways to charge you more for less service or product!"

WITH the FCC's blessing!

Creston

America's biggest innovations these days are accounting tricks. Sub-prime mortgages, mortgage backed securities & credit default swaps. Tiered, metered, per-nanosecond billing (sort of a throwback to when mainframe operators charged by the CPU cycle), altered packaging to trim 10-15% of a product out without altering the appearance. Leveraged buyouts where the company you buy bears the debt of the purchase, accounting tricks to make debt look like assets and thus drive stock up, computers who buy and sell millions of stock shares in less than a second to take advantage of micro-fluxuations in the stock market (ever notice how they don't tell you how heavy trading was on a given day any more?)... I could go on.

We don't create things, we create new ways of short-sheeting the market.

Hard one because people today only see there own nosetip.

Take it to PMs ladies Gossip

I think the biggest shame of this patch has been that the Inferno changes were largely pretty good and they have been overshadowed by everything else. I don't like the pack changes as I don't think they did enough there, there are still many horrible pack affix/mob combos but at least Inferno itself is more doable for melee now. One of my friends literally couldn't farm by himself on his Barb, I would have to come into his game and help him all the time, I felt awful that he got pigeonholed so badly into a single crappy build. Now at least he can mess around with a 2H in Act 1 and do his own runs.

So far the patches have been two steps forward, one large step back and I hope with the next patch they ditch this attitude of nerfing anything "fun" that can be abused. Diablo is an ARPG first and foremost, they need to remember that.

Diablo is a AHRPG nothing more

People like finding farming loops, boss runs and stuff like that, it's part of the experience.

Exactly. If feels like they are doing all they can to eliminate the Chinese/Bot farming viability from the game, but in doing that they are basically removing large sections of the Diablo Experience.

I imagine once they get all this nonsense straightened out and they feel like they having the farming under control to where it can't be performed by bots they will release a patch that throws item levels up to 70 or an expansion. That way it would completely invalidate the current pool of "ill-gotten" items.

yea riiiight

I might be interested, but it depends very heavily on the price. Anything over 20 bucks and they can go fuck themselves.

Creston

Blizzard has never priced their expansions at $20.

I know. And they won't even price this as an expansion anyway. 50 or 60 bucks guaranteed.

At which price, they can happily go fuck themselves.

Creston

They have said they will price it as an expansion, so basically you are just making things up as you go. Blizzard pricing has been high, but it has also been consistent since at least the 90s.

Ranting without any info is just as bad as those people complaining they were 'splitting the game into 3' even though Wings of Liberty was longer than StarCraft 2.

Oh o oh oh blizzAHrd says many thing but when you have payed for there game they just turn around , peps waiting for blizzard to make a pooo and they will swarm attack that pooo, because blizz are the..ahh ahh king

Blizzard has never priced their expansions at $20.

Blizzard also said that each one was going to be its own game, not an expansion so no doubt will be full priced. The price tag is for the campaign.

On a different note, my guess is the last 1% needed to finish is how to shoe-horn Diablo 3's always online DRM into this. And why wouldn't they? Did it with Diablo 3 and the customers loved it so much, they voted with their wallets and made Diablo 3 the best selling game of May. This tells Blizzard that people love always online DRM the most

Ehmm...?..ok

Blizzard reminds me of our goverment nothing they promissed went through and now they close there eyes and won't listen , shitty compagny who feels the need of telling the gamer world: "We did it , we screwed you all with our hype , and we can do it again".

Ohh better keep the hype up further by sending out some numbers , they eat it anyway, well gratz to you Fubard .

Well, like others have said, I feel as though there is a a great game buried beneath and it will likely take time before we are able to enjoy it for what it is rather than find ways to nit pick and voice our opinions about certain design elements.

I play it, I grind 5 NV stacks and punch Siegebreaker in the face, rinse and repeat, but I know there is much room for improvement both from Blizzard and with the game and I think that will start with 1.03.

1.03 did not help damm
ok 1.03 a will do it ...damm
no it is for sure 1.04 is the patch that will turn it around ,
mann they blizz got you right were they want you
