I was playing Diablo III for several weeks when it was released and then I took a break until this Christmas when I came back to check what they managed to do with the game with the patches.
I am playing a hardcore demon hunter. Am currently zerging my way through the hell difficulty having plenty of fun with it.
What really surprised me in a positive way is the community in this game. Been playing for several weeks, I am yet to meet a person that would be flaming or trolling in general / party chat. In fact, in the general chat, there is a constant discussion about various aspects of the game, such as gear, elite packs and their abilities, builds, paragons, etc. I find this to be quite exceptional as in various MMOs I have been playing, the general chat was usually full of spams, arguments, insults, etc.
My latest experience was also quite special. I joined a pug group with my DH. There was a wizard and a barbarian with me. The wizard obtained a legendary weapon for barbarian worth around 1m gold. He asked the barb whether he would use it if he gave it to him. "Of course I would, he said". Then the Wiz gave him the weapon. Dont need to say the barb was quite happy . Just out of fun, I asked the wizard whether he has any legendaries for DH. I really did not expect him to say "let me see what I got in my stash"...he went there and gave me a crossbow worth again at least a million gold. The barb asked him why he is so nice and he just replied "well, I believe that we, hardcore ones, should help each other" . It was a really nice experience.
I believe that your experience may differ from mine as there obviously have to be some jerks playing this game too.
Would like to ask what is your experience with the Diablo III community (preferably recent one as I believe that the game was played by many people at start, but only Diablo lovers remained playing for this long). I also believe that nowadays the community is much better than it was during the first several months after release.
