    Now, I am stuck at Act 2 inferno at the moment I simply don't have the gear but the changes above for better gear to drop in Act 1 this is good, means I DONT have farm gold and buy it from the AH or spend real money and buy it from the RMAH (which I never plan to do BTW), this is good no?

    Yep.

     

     

     

    So many buthurt people crying on forums. But their tears fuel me, omnomnom. Please do continue.

    out of all comments 90% are idiotic whining.

    1. same thing over and over again? just like every game in this genre. you knew what you were buying, they didnt promise anything more in that regard. its like buying multiplayer only first person shooter and expecting story for no reason at all.

    2. easier blacksmithing:

    lets say you spend 50k upgrading and 50k to get a RANDOM item. or... you can go to auction house and pay 10k for a specific item. blacksmithing was pointless, period. anyone with a little bit of sense knows that, which means in this case - everyone here are speaking bullshit.

    3. oh easier game! if you actually played the game you would understand that patch log actually is more confusing than you think. melee classes suffer from survival issues a lot, attack speed makes them even harder (due to most of their survival coming from life on hit items). so some things got harder, some - easier. you dont have to be genius to get that.

    4. 20 comments and no one commented the actual retarded change - magic find not working on environmental items like chests, bodies etc. so since you didnt notice this change in a game that revolves around finding items... well.... ;)

    5. dumbing down difficulty vs omfg blizzard greedy bastards:

    on one hand people are whining that you have to have insane ammounts of gold to get proper gear for act 2, and items proper for that act only drop in act 3-4, which means youll have to use the auction house, filling blizzards pockets...

    on other hand blizz now kinda removes (or atleast lessens) this issue.... and people are still whining.

    6. gold, ah,  repair costs:

    so since you can now finally find items that you can wear... youll have to spend less gold on AH. so that gold still retains some value its now gonna be a repair cost sink. how is this whole thing COMBINED a bad thing?

    7. 'no ammount of skill is gonna beat enrage timer without gear'.

    as much as it hurts me, diablo series and actually most hack and slash games were never about actual skill. you would only be challenged in pvp. is that a bad thing? not exactly, without putting artifical difficulty stuff most games are easy unless you have to play against real players.

     

    conclusion: im not saying diablo 3 is perfect, but some people fail to see the real issues.

    blaming diablo for things that are either genre specific or exists in countless other games.

    unfinished auction interface (since you have to consider more than 3 attributes later in the game, 3 attribute limit is insanely ret#arded etc), insanely cliche storyline (pretty sure anyone could figure out the story from the first lore announcement), no build variety (too many must have skills resulting in 1-2 builds for late game at best), class imbalance, outdated graphics here and there (still rather pretty, but some things like cutscenes that use in game engine... bleh) etc

    Lol posts like this make me more happier and happier that i chose not to buy D3 despite being a huge fan of D1 and D2 (some of the best gaming memories ever!).

    Can't wait for TL2 <3

    Looking forward to EQL and EQN.

    Don't bring logic in here. This is an anti-Blizzard zone and logic don't fly here.

    This. I got bored with it too.  Back to Skyrim... at least that one has replay value. /shrug

    Yep because a game that offers almost complete content randomization has zero replay value...

    To the person you quoted, "WTF is the point" At that point of the game you're still leveling. Thats the point to level and become stronger to finally survive and then dominate Inferno mode.

     

    As for my thoughts on the topic. This patch fixed a ton of my problems with the game so im happy.

    Man repair costs are bringing back nightmares of Diablo 1 after every dungeon cleared. :) I used to have 2 sets of gear so when stuff was damaged beyond what I could fix, I didn't have to go nekkid. :D

    Props to blizzard for being smart, they decrease the amount of gold you have in a ploy to get you to buy things on the RMAH.

    Its not really smart though. Its giving them a bad name at least in smaller groups. I still havent found to many media types willing to call Blizzard out on anything they do.

    In my case I have a group of about 20 friends that stopped playing D3 today. Some of them used the RMAH most of us didnt other than to sell stuff. None of us cared about class nerfs, item nerfs, ect. What we caredabout is every damn time they do a patch they do SOMETHING to reduce how well you can farm for gold or items thus at least TRYING to force people to the RMAH. Alof of people though (I cant believe me and my friends are the only smart ones) see this BS and just stop playing.

    Trying to force people to the RMAH with a broken game is just plain stupid.  Yea, there are stupid people who think Blizzard does no wrong but a fair amount are smarter than they think. Unfortunatly untill people get smarter OR Media outlets like this start calling blizzard out on shady busness practices nothing will change....except some of us have written Blizzard off as a game company to pay attention to.

    Wth are you talking about? You can farm your own gear now. Don't need the AH or lame gold farming exploits anymore.

     i haven't had time to play through inferno since the patch. Has it smoothed out that much?

    @sazabi thank you for writing what I was thinking, you should repost that on the patch notes on the official website. Major shit storm over there...

    D3 and GW2 gonna be getting cozy, collecting dust on the shelf later this year when ffxiv 2.0 goes live =)

    It just might, we'll see though!

    Doubt it because POE and TL2 are doing things the right way. The things that gamers love and want in action rpgs.

    Bioware had to nerf the game to keep all the FaceBook gamers who drop into and play  Diablo 3 interested ;-)

    Deleted D3, as I realized that its an insult with its repeatable content (lack of content!), grind and AH/cash shop.

  • uidCausticuidCaustic acworth, GAPosts: 128Member

    I was really hoping D3 would hold me over till GW2.

     

    At least I got some neat decor for the house in the collectors edition.

    OH NOES DOOM AND GLOOM!

     

    Wait, how many units has Blizzard shipped and sold so far?

  • StarIStarI waka wakaPosts: 924Member Uncommon

    Good luck to TL and PoE achieving anything similar! ;)

    why make it easier? is there that many whiners already? How many little kids play this game? what a waste 60$

    They didn't make it easier. They actually made the game exponentially more difficult.

    If you don't count their first week/pre-sale they have been doing horribly. The first week/pre-sales don't count because they are hype and they are not releasing the number of refunds they have given. You go by sustained sales they are not doing very well at all now that the word is out that the game is as bad as Duke Nukem Forever.

    I've actually gone back and picked up Torchlight again. Better game, less hassle.

    Now, I'm just waiting for Torchlight II.
