Falling asleep while trying to play through D1 event

Its probably my allergy medicine making me sleepy, but damn - it seems so damn lacking for me.

Shame as D1 was such an epic game back in the day, but this event is just not good IMO.

I think they failed to capture the atmosphere of D1 and the filter looks like poop.

Made it to floor 11, but couldnt go anymore, and Giants Packers game was on.... so yeah.

    They did it backwards. What people wanted was D1 with playable graphics. What we got was a D3 with a some D1 hand waving and worse looking graphics than the original.

    so is it just an event or is it actually a permanent D1-like game mode patched inside D3?

    It's just for each January of each year.  So you're kinda forced to do it NOW (well, within the month) if you want to do it at all, unless you're willing to wait another year.

    Agreed.  I can play D1 anytime I want because I still have the game.  I would love an updated graphics D1 experience.

    I wouldn't know because I haven't collected all of the pages I need. I've rebirthed 2 seasonal characters and am playing through, but I haven't gotten all the pages. I'm not sure Blue has got them yet either and we combined our pages on his character.

    They did do it exactly backwards. I just want to go play the stupid event and farm the rewards. Now I only have 3 weeks to do that and progress the seasonal.

    Let's face facts. The people who understood how to create those classic Blizz titles we so loved are long gone from the company. The people who are left just know how to chase trends and monetize these games. Not saying that means they aren't making Blizzard a shit ton of money, but I have to wonder how much more dosh they could make if they could recapture the brilliance and quality game making that made them great in the first place.

    Anyway hell with them. If I want to recapture the days of D1 and D2 I'll just go play something like Path of Exile. Those guys still "get it."

    That would make a good topic.  Games I feel asleep on while playing. For me it was SWTOR, while traveling on a speeder on one of their large maps.

    You don't need the pages for most of it. They only get you a portrait frame if I remember right. I collected all of them just running bounties. The white cultists occur in every act.  There is a good guide here http://www.icy-veins.com/d3/diablo-anniversary-event-complete-guide

    I finished it, but after 8 levels I turned difficulty down to T6 so could just melt people and get it over with. Ending cinematic was worth it, I think. Very nostalgic. Event itself was..... meh.

    Not surprised you fell asleep playing a Blizzard game.

    Though I do agree, the event was just meh, better than nothing I suppose.

    I, unfortunately, couldn't stomach D3 past playing it once through. Not sure how people can stomach grinding the same things repeatedly without any real 'MMO' experience.

    I'm going through on rebirthed characters. I had to crank it way down.

    Basically admits he's on meds that make him sleepy and also wanted to watch something on TV, yet blames the game itself for his lack of wanting to play it... Jesus Christ.

    Yeah, and I learned afterwards that you get a Butcher pet for doing it on a new character. Damn! I just don't know if I'll have the time to do it from level 1, or the patience. I'm feeling the itch to get to the WoW expack :)

    It's an ARPG. Grinding the same things repeatedly is one of the things that ARPG's are all about.
