    everybody who complains about the main game not finished should realize that Blizzard has multiple teams working on different aspects of the Diablo 3 franchise ....

    It is funny. But sice this game is not about "who get the first world" is more about "how do you accomplish that".
    (...)
    Ethical issues... everywhere if you think you are allow to exploit the game like that... go Kripp...
    If you think there is a more "legit" way to do it, well...

    I watched how Kungen level 3 characters from 1 to 60 playing like the game is intended... thats a fresh air... :P

    I second that. A good post in a thread infested with trolls and fanboys.

    This game is not much about world first. World first makes a bit of sense (just a bit) on WoW since it's different doing a boss you don't know much about and doing a boss another team killed and released videos etc. PTR and dungeon journal took a lot of it, but that's another discussion.

    On Diablo3 you're replaying mechanics you've already seen before. And there's the whole itemization impact, the ah impact, etc. For this game world first is just not really interesting (neither is getting ultra-fast kills with gear others bought to you). It's more interesting to see one person completing x act with y class/build/gear, showing how you can make a different build work with the right strategy. To see a class face a pack of champs with a really anti-that class affix and work a strat to defeat them. Hardcore is a whole challenge by itself, a really interesting one.

    I saw Kripp stream and he earned a bit of respect with me. He was progressing through the whole act, facing packs and all (he could use waypoint bug). And both him and his friend play very very well. That's legit gaming.

    Now when he powerleveled, or when he used (kulle and other) bugs it wasn't cleaver use of mechanics, like when you position well and body block with your follower. Using bugs and external help this way is cheating.

    Kungen is playing d3 hardcore legit but his WoW guilds did use some bugs in the past. I respect both for being skilled and dedicated players, but they really shouldn't cheat. It's ugly and shameful. If you feel like you're a good player, if you like to face challenges, do it legit.

    Quote from Graogg

    So I show that attack speed has the same dps gains and scaling as base damage for your example, contradicting your premise that it behaves strangely or unfavorably, and you call it stupid and attack the messenger? So, this conversation is going nowhere. GL in your little world.
    And since when the whole discussion was about attack speed? It's about the relation between attack speed and arcane power for channeled spells.
    I never took as a premise that attack speed behaves strangely or unfavorably, rather the relation we were discussing the whole time.
    You didn't even understand it? Talk about strange little worlds.

    So in conclusion, the same thing Blues stated months ago: Attack speed increases the pace of you combat, increasing resource gains(typically), and values certain stats (ex: flat damage buff) more heavily then slow AS builds.


    So all this shit is to say attack speed makes combat faster, favors +dmg and resource gain? Really? I mean, REALLY? Are you...

    ...special?

    You don't have a model for what you do during filler time, you don't list what ability you would use, etc.
    In fact we did. If you actually read the posts it's there. I had the trouble of showing how much dps you do when you can't sustain RoF for long and have to fill with a signature.


    Quote from Graogg

    "What about the durations!? The slower weapons let you use your ability for longer!" And I say, "So what?".
    No. The slower the weapons the more sustainable is using a more expensive version. In this case a more expensive version means higher dps.

    You didn't refute anything. You didn't refute the assumptions, you didn't even mentioned them. And you didn't refute the math. You just raised a point that was raised before (and in a more intelligent way), which is really a point of someone who could not understand really really simple concepts such as: if you can sustain a more expensive/more dps version you gain dps.

    It's really pitiful when somebody dumb as hell tries to appear intelligent. Sir, using "sophisticated" words such as assumptions, modelling, controlled variable, etc, doesn't make your argument any more logical or intelligent. It just tries to cover that what you're saying is absolutely obvious or dumb.
