i played D1 and D2....i changed mouse 2 times from clicking in D2....and i completly agree with above post from Mirishka.....im in Act 1 on Inferno now, i need some gear and all costs millions. Im farming Pony Hell with 5 valors and cant get anything worth selling for high prices.....hell, i cant even sell decent items for 20k.
So im kinda stuck in Act 1 and my time spent in game is getting lower everyday. Maybe also i changed and just dont have the will to farm for hours like in D2
Something causing me to lose interest a little bit is the fact that I am almost exclusively seeking legendaries and sets. I jack up my MF and go nuts looking for these items. Now, it's kind of stupid for me to be playing Diablo 3 right now since "real" legendaries and sets will only drop after Blizzard gets around to buffing them.
For this reason, my Diablo 3 play time has gone down.
I haven't touched the game since after the first week. Think my gaming preferences have changed since I played Diablo 2.
I dont see how they think ppl will play D3 for years if u can get "max" gear after 2-5 months
Like in D2 u had ladder reset each 4-6 month to help inflation and keep it fun over many year, and i played it for like 5 years
If Blizzard dont add a ladder system i dout ill play D3 for more than a few months, its quite sad
4 Legendaries and counting. CC ring, Ghoul Ring, AMS cloak and Aggramars Stride
It was ultimately the AH in conjunction with the extreme RNG stat allocation on items which led me to quit. I farmed the hell out of A3 inferno and I swear to god, the best ranged weapon I found had 750 dps. Now maybe I was just being unlucky but when you never come across a single freaking item for your character worth bearing, something is very wrong. Out of my entire set of equipment, everything but one item came from the AH and that was given to me by a friend.
I did however come across a lot of cool gear for other classes which I could have sold for millions of gold or even real money on the AH but what does that say about the game? Use the AH or you will not progress any further.
I might check out the expansion further down the road but I somehow feel that the game is already a lost cause. It would have to go through so radical changes it wouldn't suit an expansion but rather a whole new sequel.
Strength Determination Merciless Forever
After killing Diablo on Inferno (major anti-climax lmfao, gradeschool-level storytelling and joke boss mechanics) the game would have a lot more lasting appeal if there was any reason at all for me to do something other than Act 1 speedclears over and over again for no reward...
Waiting to see if the future patches fix the sorry state of the game. For now, just waiting and being disappointed.

Didn't play D1 or D2, but I can offer this: I solo'd my way to Inferno as a Barb, got to Act II and my interest in the game absolutely fell over and died. As soon as I realized that my ability to progress further rested in the hands of people selling gear on AH for millions of gold or hundreds of dollars, I decided I was done.[\QUOTE]
pretty much this is the main reason I don't play the game anymore and am so disappointed with it, the whole thing is designed with making blizzard as much money as possible. Also the chat interface that has the limitations I'd expect from a game released in 1995 pisses me off and spoils any chance of creating an Ingame community in the chat channels.

It was a more enthralling game for me. The patches made it better, sure, and the expansion was fantastic. It was still a better game out of the box than D3.
