And nobody even mentions the free Diablo 1 remake. It's just "all we got was necromancer!"
If you hate Diablo 3 so much, find another game to play. That's what I did.
They can't admit it until they know what's causing the problem. It may very well be something related to an ISP.
Ehh... I kind of get the feeling that anyone playing the game that hasn't gotten bored is either a new player or the kind of player who wouldn't quit in the first place, because Diablo 3 got boring a looooong time ago for most of us.
Diablo 3 is the tenth best selling video game of all time! This is quite an achievement especially with quarterly patches constantly changing the game keeping it from getting boring. Sales will continue and I can see this game hitting within the top 5 of all time sales. Kudos to Blizzard for keeping content active. Every patch feels like I am playing a new aspect of the game, making this the longest game that I have ever played.
A bot is a character being controlled through automated processes, like scripts or external programs. They are used by players who want to collect items and XP without actually being at their computer to do the work.
And this is why I probably won't ever come back to Diablo 3. The community seems to think that endgame = loot... and that's just not fun. You're playing the same content over and over again. There's no reason that loot should have to be the endgame, but no one is interested in putting any meaningful thought into figuring out an alternative.
Yes. In arpg, loot should be the endgame, not just experience/pl farming.
Still, i believe that instead of the Best in Slot, it should be trying new builds.
Not simply that must-have cookiecutter build with that item everybody is looking for, and obviously the rarest one with high costs, low rates or mandatory crafting.
A bit like poe, with easy, expensive or so-and-so builds.
Here's what I don't get: I check this site pretty regularly and I very rarely see any real complaints about the game. I mean, I'll see complaints about broken mechanics or items, but the community in general seems pretty happy with the game itself.
Now, me? I quit playing a while ago. I got tired of the endless grind for the sake of more grinding. It's not my type of game.
But it's clearly your guys' type of game. Blizzard has been updating it pretty regularly, giving you new loot, updated skills, and balance changes. Do you really need another expansion?
Be honest: If Reaper of Souls had been a patch instead of an expansion, and the game still had only 4 acts, would you really miss the 5th act all that much? You'd still have rifts, greater rifts, and all of the other RoS content, just not the 5th act. It'd be almost the exact same game.
So, again, do you really need another expansion?
I'm with you here. Also if I may add.... what on Earth they could announce when they are still incapable to fix the damn GR issues which actually is the end game in D3.
If they were working on a new expansion, they'd probably have an entirely new end-game system for it.
Could be a firewall problem. Whenever a game is patched, there's a chance that the firewall will stop recognizing it as a safe program and will attempt to restrict network access to it. Have you tried turning off your firewall?
I never really understood the desire to have all items be of equal value. Rarity of items and effects doesn't make the game worse, imo.
OP: Just in case it isn't obvious from the other posts in this thread, the reason for the long queue is the 2000% chance for legendaries to drop. Anytime that buff is activated, the PTR fills up. A good chunk of this population are people just screwing around and eating up resources while not actively testing anything.
It's kind of shitty, but it's completely expected considering that the entire point of D3 is to collect legendaries. The PTR community buff is basically cheat mode for these players, so they're out having a blast while it lasts.
Not to worry The PTR is not meant to play on it also in the last 2 days. The games still gets terminated after 10 minutes and whatever drop you get will dissapear anyway when the game is off. Happy testing!
You realize that problems like this are exactly the reason we have PTRs in the first place, right?
OP: You will never have the right to complain about anything on the PTR. The PTR is intended to provide a better product. It is not intended for you to play around on and have fun. If you aren't interested in testing and breaking the game, then the PTR isn't for you and you should stick to live servers.
they don't give us enough goals to strive for.
Well, of course they don't. The moment someone suggests something that might open the game up to being more goal-oriented, the community comes around and shuts it right down.
"Oh, you want them to make the game less about loot? SORRY, NOT INTERESTED!"
So, what's it going to be? Is Diablo 3 a loot game or is it a goal game? Because everyone I've ever talked to has suggested it's 100% a loot game and that's good enough for them. Coincidentally, that's one of the reasons I quit playing D3 -- I'm not interested in farming the same bullshit day after day after day just for a potential tiny increase in stats. Definitely not interested in starting from scratch every few months.
Either way, the community is basically getting exactly what they're asking for on this. If you want to blame anyone for the state of Diablo 3, look at the community.
The Junger Method (what you've just described) has never worked. It was devised as a method of using the bad loot-luck timer to your advantage to get legendaries from caches, but it was developed with a false understanding of the system.Quote from DrWho345
RORG Trick successful question?
I recently got help for my demon hunter with some excellent suggestions, (thanks) one of them being that I need not only a new pair of everything, but also a new Ring of Royal Grandeur, preferably with a socket already and a chance to build CHD and CHC as high as it can go
I did some research and found that if you don't open chests apart from those u have to, or loot anything else it gives u a better chance at the ring dropping from the horadric caches
This worked brilliantly, and on the first try, but the ring was crap, and I must go back and continue the search
Is this trick/method still effective if you farm bounties as a group, or does it only work if you are solo?
He didn't call you a "noob-hater," he called you a "noob hater." The difference is that the first one means that you hate noobs while the second one means that you are a noob that hates.Quote from spitdogBy calling me a noob hater you are calling MeatHeadMikhail a noob. I don't think he is a noob but I do think he posts videos that have very little relevant content in for members or guests that visit this site frequently.
Also I burnt 2 calories for typing my first post and 4 more for this post as its longer, so I am getting some exercise by doing so

not so much fun cos-play when they try to make it looks like fucking
movie. Dont actually become the character just..dress like it, christ...
Yeah, because they're sooooo interested in your opinion on their hobby.
Obviously not.Quote from garnok
a tick-box in the menus with "autoskip all viewed cinematics" isnt that hard to make, is it?
All it proves is that you have no idea how programming works.Quote from Gurkburk92
Yeahh... How did the natalyas set get the change anyway ? That CAN'T be a bug. How would it happen to just a setpiece that's demonhunters only ?
When Demonhunters gets nerfed to shit, and a setbonus gets buffed. Coincidence ? And it becomes "too good" in their eyes, and call it a bug.
Well played Blizzard, but we're not retards. & This proves Blizzards knowledge about buffing/nerfing, they have no idea what they are doing.
