Diablo 3: Patch v1.0.5 Preview

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,583MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The Diablo III blog has been updated with a brief look at developers' plans for the upcoming v1.0.5 patch. Uber-bosses, build diversity and the new Monster Power system are all part of the post.

New Event: Infernal Machine



The Infernal Machine is a device that will allow level-60 players to battle “uber” versions of some of Sanctuary’s most nefarious bosses. While the rewards for defeating these bosses will be great, some assembly is required.

    I'm not really sure why this game even gets a front page article here. It's not massive at all.
  • museandalimuseandali Lake City, FLPosts: 58Member

    millions play it, it's an online game by nature, even when you solo,, thus, by definition, it's Massive, Multiplayer, and Online.

     

    /and some of us actually make money selling stuff to lazy people

    To be honest, it's more massive then these "next gen" MMOs, e.g., SWTOR etc.

    It is here because long ago people voted they wanted it here.

    Call of Duty is massive, there are roles, its multiplayer, millions play it.... Diablo is just another game, I still don't get why it has front page news here. Would be neat though if they turned it into a titan of an mmorpg.

    What is so hard about knowing what an MMORPG (this site) is ?

    Its massive, its multiplayer, its online and its a role playing game. You play the role of your character, upgrading it, leveling it, being a hero in the story, etc...

    It's not massive. You and maybe three or so other people are in any single instance of the game.

     

    Just because there are thousands or 'millions' of people playing it, it's not concurrent users nor is it combined on the servers.

     

    If that's the weak definition we're using to define massive now, then almost every shooter out there is an mmo. The first Neverwinter and Neverwinter 2 was an mmo. Almost any hack and slash with multiplayer would be an mmo. And so on.

     

    This is not an mmo.

     
    Given the previous person's response, there definitely is idiots who don't know what the definition of an MMO is.

    I went back to try 1.0.4 and realized the problem with the game is the game itself. It's just not that fun to play.

    Maybe not to you, but to many others it is. I'm not a fan of FPS, does that mean all those FPS games aren't fun?

     

    I guess you'll miss out on Torchlight 2 too. That will be a fun game.

    D3 isn't bad game. The loot system is f'ed up and they've said nothing will be changed about that. So the game is pretty much ruined, especially TL2 and BL2 right around the corner.
  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,926Member Uncommon

    The community decided a long time ago that they wanted D3 included on this site.  Deal with it.

     

    The last patch was interesting, I may actually return to try it again for a while.  It's still missing a lot of what made D2 special though.  At least get us some runewords and charms.

    By that butchering of the definition of what an MMO is then Call of Duty, or ANY lobby based game, is an MMO.

    This is a lie, and an utter twisting of a definition to meet your own personal opinion. It is NOT a Massive Multiplayer Online game. It is only a Multiplayer Online Game (MOG). Just like Call of Duty, minecraft, etc.

    D3 shouldn't be on MMORPG.com and I am not a D3 hater or a D2 fan too attached to let go.

    Anyway, it's about time they add something new to the game in terms of content. It seems they will follow the update routine of WoW - lots of nerfs to the current end game over the time to let as many people as possible enjoy it then release new hard content.

    Yup. People need to get over it.

    Oh great idea, make the rich, richer.  Maybe they should look at their broken itemization problems instead of adding new things.

    Over 250 hours in, I have never seen a legendary drop, not one.  Rares that drop are almost ALWAYS at least 10 levels beneath my avatar.

    I have come to the conclusion, that the development team does not have one iota of a clue what made Diablo II so successful because this POS they call a game is completely lacking in fun.

    The economy is in the dumps too.  People want 10, 20 million for nice items, heck I am lucky to have 2 million around in my coffers.

    Your problem is that you want to buy a super rare item (which might go for 10m, 20m, 100m etc) by just farming gold which you get from selling vendor trash and the odd 50-100k item. In order to get super expensive items you first need to find other expensive items which are worth 10m etc. Gold is just the currency to trade items. It replaced runes from D2. 

    I can't complain myself. Today I did two runs and I got two legendaries, one worth 500k, the other one 50m (might go up to 100m but I doubt it).

    Well... I guess making the game so easy that we wont need gear with perfect stats is one way to fix the game.

    Personally i would rather them boost the stats of the gear, add many new affixes and leave the mobs in the game alone.

    Honestly Diablo 2 gear is so much more interesting.

     

    One thing i don't understand. THis device is going to take a while to build? or does assembly required mean its group content only? If its group content Blizzard just made their game worse... One of the main things people like about ARPG is playing by yourself and overtime getting all the most powerful loot.

     

     

    Edit: Diablo 3 wont be truly fixed until you can play from 1-60, progress through all content on gear and items you found and crafted on your journey. Let the people that want to ignore the AH and player trading do that.

    Methinks you skipped the part where he said no legendaries are dropping for him in the first place, so your advice kinda just comes off as an insult to tell him to sell things he doesn't have in the first place.

     

    His complaint was twofold about the problem because.

    1) The random drops on loot is too greatly imbalanced as well as items themselves being too imbalanced and frequently not worth it even if they are ostensibly rare or legendary.

    2) On top of that the way the defficulty and rewards are tiered, you do not receive loot that is properly leveled to your own character most of the time.

    As a result what good items there are get sold for silly high prices on the AH.

     

    And gold is not a replacement for runes in any way. Neither is the current gem and socket system.

    Thank you, could not have said it better myself.  When a level 29 item drops in inferno that says it all.

    Perhaps because its done by Blizzard, and thats a LOT of ad money?... ^^   It doesn't have to be strictly an MMO to be of interest to many of us.
