    dang, that looks 50million times squared better then diablo 3. Is it just me noticing a new direction of Blizzard in leaving behind the cartoon fluff ?

    This isn't a test. It is an advertisement weekend. A couple classes have to grind to 30 (A single pass full clear on /p8 will net you 28 tops)

    A bunch of grumps lol.  Of course it's a test. 

    If they add personal loot or /players 8 for ladder it's an instant buy.  Well that or full mod support for non ladder.  I'm solidly in the #somechanges crowd after experiencing the game and the great expac when they launched

    No /players 8 in singleplayer, no purchase. Simple as that.

    well it will work offline just not on ladder as it never has.  But it really does need to be added if they dont allow games to be created with personal loot

    I know it's 100% par-for-the-course for Blizz to mismanage these things these days, but I have a lot of faith in Vicarious visions. I've played Spyro, Tony Hawk, Crash, and CTR and they are all stellar remakes.

    I fully expected it to be amazing, but this couple day thing doesn't even make sense for a tech Alpha unless it is purely to advertise via streamers.  Mind you I play D2 now, but Act1-Act2 is minimal at best and unless NM is unlocked it is going to be tough to really test unless they also are just going on the whole does it feel right and I'll be honest, unless your currently playing D2, you aren't going to know if it feels right.

    I have waited so long for the remaster. I have great hopes. I am excited to see what patch they start the ladder at.

    I'd rather replay a good ol game in flashy new graphics than risk with new ideas. Sorry, but new ideas have disappointed me repeatedly.

    Meanwhile in Diablo 3 land... Blizzard just had to hotfix an item that was causing anyone the uses it to disconnect randomly and frequently.

    Another item is causing horrible lag with the FOTD build, the new and improved Firebird set, but no fix in sight for that one. This one affected me.

    And some people have needed to resort to a drastic workaround of replacing a game sound file with an edited version of it that disables all game sound as the only guaranteed way for them to not have frequent game freezes that can last for up to 10 seconds before it resumes... deadly in HC mode. Luckily I haven't needed to do that one.

    That last Fmod.DLL problem has been going on for a full year.

    Be scared of D2 Resurrected. Be very scared :)

    AAA my ass.

    But why? D3 is Blizz, D2:Remaster is Vicarious Visions. And VV has a good track record. Ofc, it's healthy to have a dose of skepticism. Just don't get consumed by paranoia.

    So you're putting faith in another studio owned by Activision for 16 years and merged into Blizzard earlier this year? OK then, glass half-full guy :)

    I am an active D2 player (currently Project Diablo). Based on what I have seen so far, I expect that this game will be awesome, for me :).

    As long as that studio is working independently and has a good track record why shouldn't he have some faith in them?

    I'm trying to stay fact based rather than falling to base emotions. And being apprehensive of a new thing is perfectly fine, otherwise we'd do crazy things(that's why "Space Marines who know NO F.E.A.R!" makes absolutely zero sense).

    But if taking a fact based approach, there's almost no reason to be afraid. Again, have some apprehension, it's healthy.

    I can't tell if you don't know what happened with WC3:R or you haven't researched anything about D2:R. Both?
