I don't consider anyone being world first on anything until they actually clear the dungeons and such completely. Avoiding huge chunks of the game just to get to the bosses and kill them is not what I consider hardcore. Finding solutions to obsticles is one thing, avoiding them is another.
Man, what a boring race this will be, if they will find any loophole to get to Diablo and kill him on Inferno Mode. At least in WoW guilds are not avoiding trash and everything inbetween bosses, just to get a world first. If necessary, Blizzard should try and fix this so it is not possible to avoid so much content, since it diminishes the accomplishment altogether.
How? What does everyone racing to world first have to do with you and your game?
Let's pretend you enjoy watching others compete... and you find it boring because they aren't actually playing the game (the way you want them to).
It's their game, money and time, let them be. If you wanna see world first i cleared everything, looted everything, unlocked every inch of the map type of shit then you can do it yourself, find someone already doing it or just wait till someone does... but IMO I rather just do it myself.
Think of it this way. It's a game based on a fictional battle between heaven and hell. Those evil nasty things in hell would have to power to bring demonic things back from being slain. If they can do it once... they can surely do it again.
Now that I have said my piece to you... I can move on to something actually worth talking about. Which isn't this "world first" race... but that's what this thread is about so here we go.
It's great that people are going through the content at this rate. Congratz to them. It's also wonderful that they have a following. People of the world, rejoice in knowing that All of Diablo 3 will be defeated within a week of it being out... or something like that. Then there are others, myself included, that don't really care about this race and are playing the game at our own paces. Congratz to them for experiencing the game the way they choose to.
Huzzahs for all. Everyone is getting what they want out of Diablo 3... and that is all that matters in the end.
haha love it how people think its an exploit. Are they going to get banned for skipping trash? Nope, cause obviously its intended use of game mechanics.
Stop the whining and grats kripp
Not saying WoW's system is bad, it's just a different kind of game.
Skipping trash to kill bosses this way in Diablo has been done since forever, its "common practice". Also the guys have been running a very tight and active schedule to stay ahead, give them a little break for stuff like staying in fire, cause at the end of the day he did stay in the fire, but they also killed the boss and keep progressing.
Just enjoy the streams and root for your favorite player.
However saying that it's a intended use is pretty dumb, that's basically saying Blizzard fully intended people to skip 95% of Inferno content if they were just going to kill bosses and avoid everything else (which is exactly why they made bosses NOT drop the best loot because they didn't want people skipping content like in D2).
Use some common sense atleast if you're going to call people out over semantics.
It is impossible for a tear of sadness to land on a Warrior Beard. As soon as the tear lands on the Warrior Beard, it is now a happy tear.5:10 AM - Everything Nice: PizzaSHARK, you're my stand in! You're promoted to like.. Semi-bestfriend.
this just means there going get bored more faster than before. Just way i see it
gj krip + team nolife, really tight guys.
and to the 'exploit' silliness: it's a game there are a lot of ways to play. i'm complete clearing everything personally & only playing solo at present, i'm not interested in racing. but the race portion of the players are about finishing the bosses from the acts - trash is trash. respect the achievement for what it is & don't whinge about what it isn't.
killing every bit of trash in inferno mode & avoiding bosses might be theoretically harder than just doing the bosses, if it were possible, but it's wouldn't really be the obvious ladder/race approach would it?
And running past trash is not cheating.
And just because the title doesnt show up in pixels, means its not real? Everyone will know who gets world first Diablo, it doesnt have to show up in game.
