    AH ruined D3 for me.

    I play HC only so I don't even have RMAH.

    Game is too easy and drops aren't special anymore. It's all about getting gold to buy better gear. I miss the times when finding a drop was exciting.

    Stopped playing a couple weeks ago. I don't necessarily regret buying it as I did get between 100-150 hours of gameplay out of it, but it really isn't that great of a game. Only reason I played as long as I did was because I was trying to force out more bang for my buck and had nothing else to play. :(

    D3 was suppose to be the game that lasted me until GW2 released but it didnt..

    This game is a real hunk of junk compared to d2...

    Playing GW2..

    One of the reasons why I even got the game mainly was to finish the story line and I thought hopefully that I'll also be able to make a bit of profit, but knowing there's farmers, I stuck more for the story.  I also wanted the pvp ... where is it???!  I'm a story person you can say and a graphics one as well.  D3's story was interesting, but it was somewhat very repetitive and that might as well have added to the boredom.  This game like I said should have been released years ago.  It shouldn't have been held onto, but of course relating to marketing strategy.  Who would want to profit off a box game over having people buy off a sub game?  Am I right?  Lol.

    I still plan on getting SC2:HotS regardless, the story is definitely a worthy get.  I love the cinematics and the drama Kerrigan has been thru.

    Oh, it is still exciting. You just choose to play ez mode and use the AH. It's not Blizzards fault you prefer to take the easy route.

     

    See that button that says "Auction House"? Don't click it!

    Yep still playing heavily. Working on progressing through Inferno on my main, but frankly the difficulty level is a bit too stressful to do all the time so I am also playing other classes.

  • huskie77huskie77 Nowhere, NEPosts: 354Member

    Yup, still play 5-10 hours a week.

    A friend of mine gave me one of his buddy passes to try the game and to be honest, I played one class up to the end of act 1 and have no desire to try the other classes.

     

    I've tried a couple times to play the other classes but I just can't get into it.

     

    There is something about D3 that is different than it's predesessors.  I played D 1/2 for hours on end, but this one just does not grab me like those two did.

     

    *shrug*

     

    So to answer the OP's question; no, I am no longer playing D3.

    Not playing anymore. I moved on to POE since I can actually build a character there. (auramancer templar ftw)

    I stopped at Act 2 Inferno on hardcore before they nerfed it. No intent on picking it back up. I'm waiting on the next patch for Path of Exile to drop and I'll play that instead.

    At least Path of Exile has proper mechanics and doesn't pigeon-hole the classes into specific items and specs to be viable, I mean you can actually customise your shit without being dumped on by every champion pack in the game. Add to that the fact that they actually managed to implement new and interesting mechanics and features and it easily became the successor to D2 that D3 wishes it had been.

    Fuck Blizzard and their homogenising mainstream bullshit.

    I am still playing it because its perfect for limited time casual gamer.

    But its only reason why.

    Gameplay is superb excellent, but everything else is just pure fail

    I am playing Skyrim and Mortal Kombat again. Diablo 3 is the first Blizzard game which I gave up after just under a month. And I was a huge D2 fan. I played SC2 for well over 1.5k hours and still go back for some more custom maps or league games. I can even see myself playing even more SC2 once the arcade comes out. And I wasn't a big SC fan either. But SC2 is so damn good. 

    At this point I am much more inclined to play WoW than I am to play Diablo 3. And I have played WoW for sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long and I've lost track of the crazy number of hours I spent playing it.

    A) Stolen

     

    B) if they Sold their Items in Real Auction House..

     

    C) Farm some items for a day again to repeat process B

    Loot drops are pathic and insulting and there's no reason to play once you get to Inferno unless you are ok with becoming a gold farmer.       This is no exaduration.  In order to get by in Inferno, you HAVE to:

     

    1) re-spec your character to a FOTM build that everyone else will be using (all that "Viability over Optimization" crap was a straight out LIE)

    2) re-gear your character with gold find, regardless if that's your interest or not

    3) Sometimes (most of the time) be forced to "leave game" and start a new one because some elite-packs spawn that have unbeatable affixes that stand in between you and victory (progression) -- This is by design.  It's a cheap attempt at "difficulty".   Literally, some shit in the game is there just to cause insta-deaths.   

    4) No matter what gear you are wearing, there are plenty of ways to get 1-shotted.       No more gratification.  No more feeling like you're character will ever be overpowered, because Blizzard consistantly nerfs anything the players start to do to make the game playable.

    5) the point of the game, even clearly explained by blizzard, is to farm elite-packs to get a 5stack goldfinding buff so that you can kill more elite-packs and make more gold so you can buy new gear from the AH.... drops are only there to slow you down, as once your bag is full, you have to stop to vendor it all because it's all TRASH.    All of it.  

    6) drops AND crafting supposedly use a RNG (random number generator) --- I do not believe it is truely random, otherwise, you would RANDOMLY get a useful item from time to time...    Nothing random about getting the same useless stats over and over.

    7) Every class plays the same once you get to Inferno.  Every elite pack encounter forces all classes to play like a demon hunter.   Run... Run.... shoot.  run run run shoot.  die.    start over.        This is disgusting to try and swallow if you're a melee class who was never interested in the Kiting approach to combat.

    8)   BLIZZARD has it's hands in everyone's pocket that plays.    Too much control.   I don't like having to log in and stay connected to my single player game, and even if I did, I don't like that every week, Blizzard decides to nerf something or change the way I'm supposed to do things in my single player game all because they get to decide what's fun and what isn't.     I'm tired of being punished because Blizzard thinks they can stop people that exploit in their own game.   

    D3 is ridiculous, and it's not deserving the title of Diablo.       

    OP, do the world a favor and support a real dungeon crawler and buy Torchlight 2.

     

    THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!  Everything you say here is so spot on, i cannot agree with you more. Blizzard kinda soiled themselves in my mind, just like Bioware did also this year. Guess the mighty Devs. of old have finally sold out, i will probably never buy another title from either Blizzard or Bioware again.

    Anywho D3 is a nice looking coaster at least . . .

    Lolipops !

    I still play D3 but waiting for the Open Beta of PoE to start a char, so that they don't delete it, I was intrigued by the new Map system, and it really looks like a great game. I just hope at some time they implement loot like in D3 where everyone gets their own items, if that's not the case I might solo the whole time, since I don't wanna share my shinies.

    @gimmesome

    pretty much everything you said is bullshit, I play a self funded monk ( no AH, just stuff I've found ) and can easly farm A3, and in A1 it's not a problem to tank 2-3 packs of elites at once ( althou getting 3 close to one another almost never happens ). I never have to skip any elites and I play with pretty shitty stats ( 21k dps, 700 all res, 8k armor, 32k hp - thats with my shield, when farming A1 I use dual wield for 26k dps ).

    My brother farms inferno gears as well, he made $400+ usd last week. I love diablo 3.

     

    Thank you blizzard for the success of real money auction house, no complaints from me. I dont buy gears with money i just sell them.

    yada yada yada

    and I made my self over $3500 last week from my real job.  It will be a cold day in hell before I'll be a farmer for Blizz.

    Are you one of the few person who beat Diablo on HC inferno? Otherwise, I don't know how you can say it is too easy.

  • nariusseldonnariusseldon santa clara, CAPosts: 22,441Member

    Still playing. Just get enough gear to get to the end of Inferno Act 2.

    Already have tried 2-3 different wiz build. It is nice that there are more than 1 build that actually works, unlike WOW.

    Working on my Monk, having a blast.

    Nope.  I lasted 2 days.

    The Blizzard staff was hitting the crack pipe a little too hard when they designed this train wreck.

    Dave, if you quit after 2 days, then the problem is you, not Blizzard or their game design.

     

    The primary issues people have with the game are with the highest difficuly Inferno and item drops. The other 3 difficulty levels are fine and so is the gameplay / mechanics. If it doesn't suit you, it's because you don't like these type of hack n slash dungeon crawler type games. The game is far from a "train wreck".

    I think most of the people who voted "No" don't even actually own the game.

     

    Statistically I think most people who bought Diablo 3 still do play it weekly.

  • Z3R01Z3R01 NYC, NYPosts: 2,426Member

    Yes im still playing. 

    Clocked over 180 hours between my 60 Barbarian and Two mid level alts DH and WD. 

    I've gotten old friends into the game, we all log in now and most night I roll with 2-3 friends just enjoying the game in mutliple difficulties. 

    I have co-workers talking about the game, I got my son and brother into it.

     

    Playing:

    Waiting on:

    I voted no.

    This is my barb http://i.imgur.com/sbNMi.jpg. Tell me a single reason why should i keep playing this game.

    Did I enjoy playing the game ? Nope at all. Whole game had less content than random f2p korean grinder while being more grindy than korean grinder itself. Why did I play then ? GW2 and Path of Exile are not out yet. I think that pretty much sums up why anyone still plays this shitty game.
