Yeah, the story made no sense to me either. Need to see more about the actual gameplay on this one.

Im sick of HOTS, and currently waiting for DCS World 2. I think Ill be going back to POE and creating a nice new character when this hits. Might even start messing around with Hardcore.

Any suggestions, for a (not a complete newbie) what character I should start out with? Im looking for a char that is not so much gear dependant.

To be honest there is so much changes in 2.0 that half the builds are broken and there's about another 10,000 builds to replace them. The amount of content and changes to the game is indeed staggering. I'd recommend just looking at what main skills you find the most enjoyable and build off of that. Lots of old skills that werent so good got boosts. There's also a ton of new skills to play around with. Melee seems to be in favor throughout the beta though.

Ok thanks for the tip. Last time I played, I leveld two classes, melee crusader, and ranged ranger. The ranger got further along before hitting a really solid feeling gear wall. I simply couldnt progress further without significantly better gear without trading for it. Im looking to avoid that bit, since to trade you really need to get sort of lucky with some orb drops (at least thats how it used to be).

You should be able to get to maps now at least without having to trade much, if at all. Some easier starting builds would be things like Flame Totem (witch or templar) or Ice Crash (probably Marauder with 2H axe or mace). With vendor recipes for things like +1 to elemental gems, or +xx% physical damage, you can generally craft decent weapons to keep you going. I'd recommend saving up your currency orbs as much as possible though, as you'll get far more for them by trading later on than you will by rolling the dice and using them to try to craft good rares.

The leveling process has been smoothed out considerably. Gems are now available from vendors, so you have much more access to them than before, without trading. They also sell 3 and 4-link gear much sooner than before, so that can be handy when you need an upgrade. They've also cut out a lot of the annoying and boring areas to keep things moving more quickly. Feels so much better now than before.

Been playing around in the beta, and this expansion is just massive and game-changing. So many improvements make the game feel so much better. Really looking forward to playing in the Warbands league when this is released.

I liked the first Battlezone remake. The sequel, while it improved certain aspects, didn't seem to capture the same feel of movement of the first. Interested to see how this turns out though.

PoE/D2 you can play for years on end and never get bored.
False, bored to death with both of them also.

PoE is the same story as D3, new patch additions lure you in, level up a toon just to ditch him upon reaching high end because it's the same all over again.

And D2... what's the point of doing Baal or Mephisto runs for hours? Rly?

Except that PoE at least gives you a million different ways to build a character. So many very different skills and combinations, as well as Vaal skills and much better crafting system. With upcoming 2.0 release, we also get jewels, divination cards, more new skills, new monsters, and new play mechanics each season, on top of an entire new act for the game. I sometimes get bored with a character, but I keep coming back to try something new.

cosmetics, convenience, and consumables not power, not gear, not permanent stat increases

So temporary increases are in? Sounds like these consumables will make it pay to win.

Yep, they can try to make it sound benign, but that's definitely P2W.

I think I tried to get in once and the server wouldn't let me play so I quit and forgot about it.

I didn't even buy anything on sale. I just have to much stuff to finish already.
I think I picked up 2 games during this sale. There are others I'd like to get, but I've got so much to play already that I can easily wait until the holiday sale to get anything else. I haven't even started Witcher 3 yet, and that alone could last for a couple months, with other things like HotS mixed in.

I do lurv me some near-future RTS. And this is the same guys as the Wargame series, which is pretty good. The only caveat is that this is the follow-up to Act of War, which was just okay. That was a long time ago, so these guys must have learned a trick or two since then.

I thought Act of War (and its expansion) were pretty good. Better than most other RTSes of the time.

I'm sure I'll be buying this, but I tend to wait at least 6 months or so for mods to fix all the stupid decisions they made, as well as the half-assed quests and areas, and for patches to deal with the inevitable horde of bugs.

These games are generally fairly bad at release, and would stay that way if not for the modding community.

Edit: Oh yeah, and if they try any paid mods crap with this, then it's no-buy for me.

HotS is like Dota 2 only it's frustrating, it has worse graphics, it's based around grind / P2W, the gameplay is all spam and... well, yeah.

I really hate Blizzard's P2W business model. Hearthstone was ruined because of it. Valve nailed it with Dota 2, which is why this is so frustrating.

Uhh, yeah. There's nothing P2W about it. I've only been playing for about a month off and on. I'm new to MOBAs aside from a fairly brief stint with LoL. This game has less tedious and annoying aspects than LoL, and I'm having a pretty good time with it. Just hit lvl 25 which unlocks all talents. It starts you off playing co-op against AI, which is good. Then let's you play against other teams. Gotta get to lvl 30 I think to access ranked play, but I have little interest in that anyway. I may pay to get permanent access to some heroes, but I've already made over 25K gold, so I can buy some anyway.

I've been playing with it for the past month or so. It's basically the fun parts of other MOBAs, without so much of the tedious, annoying stuff. I like it. It's got the typical Blizzard polish, and it's free. Can't really find much wrong with it.

I'll give this a shot when it comes out. Blizzard is pretty good at polishing games, even if they did screw the pooch with D3. I'm pretty sure they'll fix the annoying crap during the inevitable beta.

I don't mind F2P, as long as it's not P2W. I play PoE and HotS, which are both F2P and just fine.

I did eventually get my Witcher 3 key from GMG yesterday. They also sent along a 40% off code for my next purchase, so that helps too.

No, not really their job to trump up a bunch of crap to create a ridiculous sentence possibility in order to coerce plea bargains. If you want to see what prosecutors consider to be fair treatment, look at how the handle cases involving cops. No charge stacking or coercion there.

They don't always send them out. Check your game key list on GMG o see if it's been added.


Yeah, still says no key available. Guess I keep waiting...
