Blizzard Diablo 3 Sucks

Here are my Facts: 375335 Lifetime Kills, 22291 Elite Kills. I spent close to 1000 hours farming and have NOTHING and that means NOTHING to show for it. Why in god’s name in all that time and all that effort could I not get at least 1 drop that had some type of value? You can’t tell me it’s all based in luck because if it was you would think that that there would be at least 1 drop out of 375335 kills. My only conclusion is that the game is rigged in the favor of Chinese botters and that Blizzard has put them on the payroll as a way to make money through the back door. When I made my original post did the good people at blizzard care to comment on it. The answer is no, Instead of addressing my concerns they banned me from the Forums for a week. So I’m sure this post will not be addressed as well and I expect to be banned again but At this point I don’t really care anymore.

 

And Like I suspected In stead of Blizzzard addressing my conserns they blocked My account. Well they will never ever get another dime from me again

    Why anyone who plays that rubbish of a game over something like Path of Exile is beyond me.  It is superior to D3 in every way possible.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Don't delude yourself. Both games have their ups and downs. 

    "For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

    Well, except for clunky combat, piss poor loot (worse than D3), mediocre graphics, a skill tree which is big and complex looking solely for the sake of being big and complex looking, crippling desync and lag issues, gender-locked classes, having to 'find' skills, lack of a practical respec option, small area of view, lack of a cohesive narrative, and endgame defined completely by a ridiculously tedious crafting system based on RNG, I suppose you're right.

    AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!

    I think the greater concern than you playing Diablo 3 for longer than the...10 hours? It took to beat the normal storyline. Is that you decided to play it for nearly another 990 hours expecting a different result.

    Reaper of souls is going to suck too. Seriously. It is.

     

    As much as I wish I could dump a 1000 hours into a game. I would sooner try to make love to a porcupine than spend my time playing diablo 3 for that long.

    Rofl yes, of course blizzard has totally put botters on their payroll.

    That's why they're removing the auction house and making pretty much every darn item untradable in reaper of souls.

  • nariusseldonnariusseldon santa clara, CAPosts: 22,441Member

    Either the OP does not know how to play, or he is extremely unlucky.

    I played a good chunk of D3 when it first came out, and i have what 700-800 hours on the game ... and not only i got good stuff from time to time, at the time i stopped playing (waiting for RoS), i made $100 off the RMAH .. that is the net, including the money i have spent on gear.

    In fact, i have never gone negative (i.e. use real money) in the game.

    So OP, are you farming high MP with max paragon? Granted that the good stuff is rare (that is why they are good), but if you farming enough you should have gotten lucky a few times. The highest drop i got is a EF with high DPS and LS, and i sold it for like $55.

    Not to brag (since that is luck) but showing that certainly it is possible to get good drops (and i have quite a few $10-20 type drops).

    Not really.  Neither game exactly sets the world on fire.  I wasn't impressed with D3, PoE, or Torchlight 2, for that matter.  

    But if I had to choose, I'd rather pay money for D3 than play PoE for free.

    Most games have limited appeal.  Blizzard just has massive amounts of fans.

    As I've stated before all 3 of them appeal to a certain type of gamer, and each has benefits and drawbacks.  Neither is superior to any of the others though.

    Playing a game that sucks for 1000 hours, how miserable life must that be. Have my condolences. I prefer to play good games.

    Sorry you didn't get your money's worth OP....jeez..

    I play this game and visit the forums and I can honestly say that the community on the forum site has to be the worst (and yes I played Swtor as well) that I have ever seen.

     

    The game has its ups and down just like every other game. Having said that, yeah I'm enjoying the game and for me it's one of the better games I have purchased in the last year. 

    The forum is riddled with self proclaimed experts that do nothing but try to convince others how bad the game is. They cry because Blizz doesn't respond to their rage posts and claim that they are done with the game (which everyone knows is bull) and continue to polute the place.. 

    They are like the person who eats all but one piece of a pizza and then complains on how bad it was.

    Here's a tip - If you spend 1000+ hours on a game - Expect to be disappointed. Read a book, watch a movie, spend some time away from the computer (or console) and take some time away.

    The moral of the story is - if you put that much time into a game and then don't like it and complain.

    The game is not issue......

    If you have a problem with D3 just stop playing.

    Diablo 3

    81 hours Barbarian

    107 hours Demon Hunter

    215 hours Monk

    37 hours Witch Doctor

    12 hours Wizard

    Total 452 hours played

    Lifetime kills 400k, Elite kills 20k.

    Paypal payments from Blizzard $729.27 June 14 2012 - September 14 2012

    Total Battle.net Balance from Diablo 3 $1,960.82

    I had fun, when I stopped having fun I stopped playing the game. I found plenty of items which turned into some good perks.

    Diablo 3 could have been great, the skills were good, the graphics great, the encounters were enjoyable (for awhile). However its issue was itemization and the Auction houses. Also that whole lacking of pvping thing they promised for the longest time and what we got was laughable. 

    Path of Exile

    Total Played 473 hours 

    About the time I got bored with it on Domination. I found plenty of gear and even made my own 6L Carcass jack. 

    Overall PoE is easy to gear up to about 60, after that it requires a lot of trading if you want to progress at any reasonable rate. The only thing the game has going for it is the build options, skill gems and passives with the tree isn't to bad but the respec option isn't viable for most and releveling another character will become a dredge after some time. I after about my 10th character I got bored with it. The game has a lot of issues though, technical ones and graphical ones. The bosses/elites are aesthetically boring and even the encounter itself leaves much to be desired. The fights are either throw bodies at the bosses, get one shot or over gear the encounter and face tank. There is no in between or that was a close one or that was fun. 

    Both games have their failings and promises, personally for me I got bored with them about the same time. I plan to play Reaper of Souls though, I will start fresh and play the game as a new one and see how it goes.

    If you play a game for a few hours and hate it then the company didn't make a game for you. If you play a game for even 50+ hours then the game gave you your monies worth. If you played a game for over 1000 hours and hated it, you have a bigger problem than the game does. The fact i have more or less the same kill stats but half the play time says something.

    AH is eliminated. Itemization is being worked on .. obviously we don't know how it turns out (aside from beta reports) until RoS is out .. but at least it seems like RoS is going to fix two of your problems with D3.

    lack of PvP is not going to be fixed though .. D3 is a pure pve game .. they should not have promised pvp.

    Some people are just full of hate.

    D3 is now a great game.

    PoE is a decent lower budget ARPG with some good qualities. I like both for different reasons. And no one needs to play only ONE ARPGs.

    It's possible that it is great now, but it was an atrocity at launch, and first impressions are hard to shake.

    Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.

    Hmm I dont know I like it better now. As in real life most do not like any kind of change..it upsets their world. Again I'm having fun. Some just can't do things they use to and ..that sucks..they get really upset and you know what I'm talking about.

    welcome to 2 years ago... duh.

    Blizzard makes fluffy shallow experiences for fluffy shallow people. Sometimes those people realize they want more than fluffy shallow experiences and get mad and post on forums. Welcome to your life. Now do something about it. If you login again or buy more Blizzard happymeal bullshit - you're dumb.

    LoL! It took you 1000 hours of farming to conclude that, basically, D3 is just garbage benefiting from D2's huge success?!?! I finished the game once when it was released, and then uninstalled it and never looked back.

    I certainly do not intend to buy the expansion. The way I look at it is this: Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice ...

    It's possible that it is great now, but it was an atrocity at launch, and first impressions are hard to shake.

    how was it an atrocity? i mean other than the rough launch that is.

    it's better now than it was sure but even at launch it was better than POE IMO

    that's not to say POE still isn't a good ARPG because it is, especially considering it's totally F2P.

    but D3's combat is just better and more fluid with more build diversity (last i checked at least), which has not changed one bit since launch. i also think the fact that POE totally ripped off the diablo theme is a knock on that game for me.

    both games lack any decent pvp so that's a huge knock for me as well.

    Given that it sold 15m anyway, and as popular as wow on xfire, i would say first impression is not that big of a deal in this case.

    i would say this game is beyond just great if even haters would put 1000 hours into it. How many will spend 1000 hours on a game they dont like?
