Yea hell yea and those who did not wanna buy the famous " Horse armor" back then , should just move on , NOW see what we got in todays games " Buy to win" sorry but that card about "if you don't want it you don't have to" is getting oooold.

Buy to win what, though? Your single-player/co-op game? Isn't that the player's prerogative whether they want to speed their progress through the campaigns or not? How does that affect YOU? (Hint: it doesn't.) It's not that far removed from people using cheats or console commands in games to play the way they want to, only in Blizzard's Orwellian online world you need a more "legitimate" way to do that, ergo the auction house was implemented.

You might have a point if there were any PVP in this game, but for that I would hope they'd have some kind of matchmaking system that puts people of similar stats together to make it more fair regardless of whether they bought or found their gear.

Hint it does affect me , when the loot/drop system is how it is
And no i do not approve the " Legitimate" kind of excuse its killing games (that forces peps to play SP online) ,
Buttom line the shady greedy way they have taken was the line for me.
hell there behavior is ...ah gl

Even plainly stating that Diablo isn't WoW doesn't stop these weirdos from talking about this game like it's an MMO... Since when do single-player/co-op titles have an end-game? You beat it and you're done, that's it. Maybe you replay it with other classes in the case of an RPG, but that doesn't make it "long-term sustainable." An open-world, moddable sandbox like Skyrim barely qualifies for that! So if Blizzard wants people playing as long as possible to increase the chance they might use the RMAH, a potentially endless stream of revenue not unlike subscription fees, maybe they'd better put more effort in creating new content rather than overthinking basic gameplay elements and "fixing" things that are better left alone.

As for the MF gear swapping, what kind of whiny babies actually complained about that? If you don't want to do it, you don't have to! Other people trying to maximize their loot doesn't affect you, so just shut the hell up. (No, I don't do it, but maybe I'll try it after hearing about it.) I think they should make it EASIER to swap gear, by bringing back that hotkey that lets you do it instantly at any time and without penalty. People that want to use it for farming can do so, and people that use it for other reasons (like alternating DPS and defensive gear when needed) can do so, too. The reason people get so pissed off is that they keep restricting what can be done rather than encouraging creativity and freedom in playstyles, which -- guess what, Blizz? -- is the type of thing that keeps people playing for a long time.

The number of idiots in this thread is staggering.

1. It doesn't matter how much blizz gets sued, they have better lawyers.

2. They don't owe you anything.

3. The RMAH is a great idea because A. you can get your investment back, B. it's awesome making money doing something you'd do for free, C. purists are morons, D. not everyone thinks rpgs are srs bzness, E. it's never going away, neither is the DRM, all games will soon do this.

Get used to it or get a new hobby.

And blizz is not 'in trouble.' There's about 10 million bored WoW players who are going to play Titan when it comes out.

Idiots.

Well good for you..now in other news..today we saw...................

Someone mentioned the 'age of entitlement'. Well if that aint the truth. What the fuck, the guy loses 50$ and calls the FBI? He couldnt wait a few hours to hear back from customer support? A friend of mine got hacked and he got it sorted within 48 hours.

I understand the complaints about the AH and RMAH but complaining that the game is fucking impossibly hard at INFERNO and that its impossibly hard to find any itmes????

Jesus 'age of entitlement' is just about fucking right. Its because of retarded, spoiled assholes who expect everything on a silver platter, preferably while shitting in their adult diapers on their favorite couch in front of their easy-mode console that we get shovelware on the shelf these days instead of proper gaming.

Diablo, hard??? OH BOOHOO cry me a fucking river assholes. Go play some Mass Effect 3 on 'story' mode and keep up the good work.


tuff guy yeaaaahhhh tuff guy bought everything on the RMAH and run through diasko 3 like a hot knife in butter , sure peps are whiners sure they are Clown

This is a long one

Yep so i snipped it sorry for that.

For me the bottomline is the way the tried to mask there intentions
(by looking at how the game behave towards loot) and blizzi's attitude the way it has become. (hell its like i don't know them anymore)

it so smelled of " Lets milk them they EAT all we give them"

They really took peps as dummies.( some may be some may not , it all depends of the eyes looking)

There behavior to the eu forum is as no respons ,
I do still think they work along the goldspammers in some way,
I still think the workers at blizzi are putting Legendary loots up in the AH
yea yea call me what ever

The way they handle the Gspammers is like none exsist even tho they spam with internet adresses hell even in blizzi own forum have they done it.

There intension with there DRM is just pure well you know.

Ohh and btw Games of yesterday are better they were made with passion and you still can feel that in the games , not like today today its like sitting in a train straight ahead

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.


And for that AHRPG that you hope will get its shit together you payed 60$ Clown

Sorry, the ship has already sailed...this whole "let's tweak the game a million times" got old in WOW, and it's not any more welcome here.

Good changes are always welcome, that's really close minded and petty. The boss thing is just a reversion of a previous nerf but the other changes are great and the drop rates are generous.

I think Blizzard is finally listening to feedback and reason. Between these changes, the Natalya set bonus thing and Bashioks post about having a general new design focus I am really hopeful the game is moving in a good direction finally.

moving in a good direction finally
That could have been done before release ! , it only shows they don't have any direction what so ever with this Way to early release
And even charge full price for it.
Tho the funny part is peps forget very very quickly what shitty compagny they are , "just throw in some nerfs and better drops , then the gamers will get back to us and praise us once again"
Peps are sooo easy
Pixels over peps

Ok...fingers crossed that Blizzard is watching that date and brings us PvP (among the other promised shit) to D3.

The WoW expansion also has a chance of coming out around that time.

They will tho you got to pay to play pvp 1$ pr round if your team win you will get the payment the other team payed but blizzAHrd takes 15% of the winning but still we loooove you blizzAHrd

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
