Would love to play this but i have a dinosour pc. Old as a fossil. Maybe if win the giveaway. But regardlessbi heard about the dissapointment on item drop isbreally outstanfing. Patch is a start
Ugh, seriously? Who could possible want to level their character to 60 100 times? That's enough time to make me vomit. I put 30 hours getting one character there and I was completely burned out. I'm no sure how well this will play out for Blizzard. (I did make a brief reappearance when I found out about the magical land of Whimsyshire:D Kudos Blizzard.)
After how bad they botched this game, the only patch Diablo needs is the "refund" patch.
I don't think that is the way Paragon leveling will work, at least I hope not. More likely you will gain Paragon levels in the normal way you get to 60, so 160 levels in all. 60 reg, and 100 Paragon.
You know, this is Diablo 3. If you expected anything significantly different from Diablo and Diablo 2, you're smoking some serious crack. Furthermore, the cash cow for Blizzard is not Diablo, but World of Warcraft, which is why Diablo 3 was given free to WoW subscribers who made a one-year commitment.
Lastly, if you can do better, I understand the 38 Studios facilities and most of the staff are available; get to work and show us how it's done.
I never bought Diablo 3 and I do not play WOW. I have plaid WOW probably a total of 3 months in my lifetime and I never subscribed as it was not worth it to me there are way, way better MMO's then WOW has ever been. I have plaid MMO's since Ultima online was introduced and I was also a subscriber to EQ on day 8 of it's existence so I have a tad of experience, not to mention I have also been a guild leader on those as well as on several other MMO's and even worked in game support (Generally on new server introductions) on 3 different occasions for over a month for EQ.
After playing up to Act 3 Inferno, I lost the drive to keep playing. I couldn't even beat the game because of lack of decent enough gear to survive. I blame this on how much emphasis Blizzard put on the Auction House and how mandatory they made it. Sure, they say you could play without it and I would prefer to, but that would take how many god awful months to even get to Inferno with the terrible drop rates.
Lastly, it is not a question of whether I can do better. That is irrelevant because it is not my job to create games (although I've been learning 3D modeling in Blender as a hobby). It is not a sin to have high expectations of series which as had such successful prequels.
What MMOs do you play?
I already got a refund for Diablo III, but nice to see they are trying to make it better.
Yea, i don't believe blizzard is stupid enough to make people level up 6000 times. Only a handful of fanatic D3 players would spend a few years leveling up.
How far are you on your way to Whimsyshire? i heard it can be pretty difficult finding the right pieces.
Finished normal, and reached act 2 of nightmare, and I just lost all will to play. I guess loot and dungeon crawling isn't for me. I enjoyed it enough that I might buy an expansion, though.
bought D3 a couple days after the release, and was totally annoyed about how hard it was to log in... eventually that got better, but after completing the game the 1st time, and restarting on the 2nd difficulty round, it quickly got boring.
so i started a second character, but that too was a little boring... im not sure why, but i loved and played D1 and D2 like no other games existed, lol... just doesn't seem to have the same appeal anymore i guess?
what really annoys me is that in single player mode the game still relies on your internet connection, i lag, freeze and disconnect... that is totally absurd when i am just playing solo... basically means the game is useless if i were to loose my internet connection~ zzzZZzzzzzzzzz
bottom line~ yeah i was disappointed... haven't logged on since ages... might try it out again now that there has been this re-balance/update patch~ or maybe ill keep playing LoL.

I'm at level 5 now, not far enough into it to even notice the changes but I am starting to get more into the game. Seems like playing with a party would add a lot to the experience.
