    It's true except lod solved alot of the issues vanilla d3 is facing. i'm not sure why i should have to by an expansion for them to do this all over again.

    Blizz will always add things to their game as time goes on so of course it will be a better game in a year. HOWEVER buying D3 was like buying a beta that wasn't finished. So I honestly feel that the game is over for me no matter what they add.

    Basically, you don't get a second chance to make a first impression. No matter how good the game gets, they won't get another opportunity to give me the experience of newly discovering D3 with my friends.

    The game now is better than it was at launch. With 1.05, the game will finally get reasonably close to the point where it can be considered on par for a Blizzard product. The shitty part about that is that it means the game was markedly worse at launch than it should have been.

    Fire Jay Wilson, game will have a chance

    I wouldn't be holding my breath. If they hadn't fired him already or moved him off the project after this long and this many debacles well then he knows the right people. Or he's got photographs of somebody doing something they shouldn't be doing.

Farming is too random and upgrades cost 30-300 million each. It's just garbage. I literally can't remember the last upgrade I've received from a drop in game.

    The game was designed for players to use the RMAH to max their character. There's no way around it. That makes it trash in my opinion.
    The thing is, I can kinda understand it from Blizzard's perspective.

    Blizzard understood that in D2, it was impossible to expect someone to gear up with top end items without either hacking or participating in 3rd party auction houses. So they thought everyone would be fine with the idea of adding an AH directly into the game and eliminating the need to go to 3rd party sites.

    What actually happened was that it destroyed the illusion of farming for gear to improve in a Diablo game. It was overt and obvious to everyone that, not just the quickest, but the only path to gear was trading and using the AH.

    The people that traded on 3rd party sites could feel elite for understanding how to do it, while snickering at people who actually tried to farm gear on their own. With D3, everyone traded for gear and no-one stood out.

    I was personally SHOCKED at the idea of an AH in D3. I was constantly posting that Diablo needs to go in the complete OPPOSITE direction. They needed to make ALL items soulbound, kill trading for gear COMPLETELY, and force people to kill bosses, craft, and actually play the game to get better. I was pushing that idea years before release. But obviously, they didn't listen.

    What could have been...

    Yeah, I very highly doubt that the next D3 expansion will have anywhere close the sale numbers as D3 did. Unless they do another Annual Pass for the expansion, but even then.

    Uhhh not really. LoD actually BROKE the game. The addition of runewords and charms trivialized a lot of things, over powered uniques made most rares useless. Any hardcore player worth his salt will tell you that a Classic Guardian is a much harder feat than a Guardian on LoD.

    It can only get better, as with all blizzard games over time

    Don't care. Still a fun game for me - a casual gamer. I play a few hours a week. I squash monsters, I get loot, I have fun, I log off. It's a fine game for someone not looking to play 10 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    Except in wow, sc2, d2

    It will take blizz months or even years to fix the problems with this game.

    They still have not talked about fixing the loot and when they do, it will only start with new items that drop so they will try to force people play more or use rmah. Putting str/int on items meant for dext users and too much randomness on legendary stats shows how inept the designers are.

    The constant nerfs to every build in the game is just pathetic.

    The nerfs will not stop seeing as they want the pvp to be taken seriously and we all know how well that worked out in wow.

    Recent patch and upcoming adding nice things but still not enough to bring most players back.

    D2: LoD was a whole lot better than D2 Classic. It's a simple fact. Whether or not Classic Guardian or LoD Guardian is harder is entirely besides the point.

    There's even one big flaw in D3 that I don't think will ever get fixed.
    I just don't see Blizzard making that big changes. I doubt it's even possible at this point.

    The flaw is the inability to travel between acts and do quests in a non-linear order.
    In that sense, D2 is truly the better game. It has much more freedom and thus replayability.

    They can improve D3 all they want, it will always have this very major flaw. It's really killing the replayability of the game.

    It's gotta be loot, right? I mean... Everyone already knows it's loot. What else could it be?

    Uh... What?

    This is such a trivial "issue". What you're really asking for is the ability to get 5 stacks of NV and then just port to every boss in the game. If this ludicrous request is not what you're after, then log out of the game you're in, pick the Act/Quest you want and get going. It's like 3 more mouse clicks and maybe 30 extra seconds when compared to D2.

    How this would affect “replayability” is completely beyond me. You can still do exactly what you did in D2. It just takes a miniscule amount of time longer. Calling this a “very major flaw” is absurd to the point of idiocy. Would it be nice to be able to move between Acts without starting a new game? Sure. But on a scale of 1 to 10… In terms of important issues they need to address, this is like a negative 2.

    D3 will stay the same next year, a complete disaster.

    Haven't played d3 but will if they take out RMA. Just wanted to chime in, saying that part of the "abysmal failure" as some have labelled it (I'm not sold on that) comes from the fact that D3 has attracted a bunch of gamers that have non-D3 expectations. MMO players were guilty of this, as were all the LoL people. Fact is, D2 came out at a different time and had no viable competition until late in LoD. D3 has had to fight MMO expectations every step of the way and still people went in looking for things that just weren't going to be there.

    I played D2 for six years straight, it was a rush and a ride but that kind of thing will never happen again. Going forward we'll just have new stuff, new experiences and new ways of being entertained. If anything, the virtual worlds we explore and fight in have gotten bigger, better, more social and have more stuff in them to do than every before. The only thing holding a game like D3 back is the people looking for other games inside it.

    If you wanted skill-based PvP, why didn't you start playing DotA?

    D2 and D3 are not all that different except you can't farm the boss whenever you want and in D3 bosses are not really that important anyway. You just select the last quest and can go wherever you want. I don't see your problem here. And quest... D2 quest system is forgettable, 6 quest max per act and no you can't do that in any order, you have to kill izual before go to hellforge, then go to diablo. Either you do that in a row or you just start a game with every quest done.

    There isn't a single person left on my friends list who even plays this game anymore (after at least 12 bought it on release)...it took them to long to make the game and even in the end it was released to early, it was clear they didn't have a clue what to do with it.
