    I get the fun by setting goals in D3. In Hardcore that's easy: get every class to lvl 60 HC and kill Diablo in Inferno.

    Others may set for grinding keys and constructing Hellfire Rings or create über avatars with über gear. Be that HC or SC.

    The key word is "fun" and it is up to the player to find it in ANY game.

    The last few days I also played with little cyclists to simulate the Tour de France or some cycling classics in a boardgame ...

    I guess 99% of the people won't understand it, but the problem is that no one can define "fun" for each individual.


    And Diablo 3 offers spades of fun for 3 million people per month apparently.

    No need to try to counter this with useless posts.

    D3 is there and liked by those who play it (be that from time to time or every week, day or monthly).

    None outside mindless fun, wich get boring in 10mins or so by now for me. In 500 hours my best find sold for 80m. My DHs gear is worth around 1.5b, my Monks, maybe 5-600m. There's no way i could had afforded more than one piece of what i have on either self found, in 500 hours. Atm i'm just flipping the AH and racking up gold, takes 10 mins every 2 days or so anyway.

    I dunno, having fun, maybe?

    D2 is the exact same way as D3 is in terms of content, yet everyone constantly praises it. You beat Hell Baal, and then what? Farm, farm farm.

    Same with D3: You beat Inferno Diablo, and then what? Farm, farm, farm.

    And TBH, I have a lot more fun farming in D3 than I ever did in D2.

    because its fun.
    its fun to try and find an upgrade.
    its fun to have a herd of mp10 monsters follow you round like you're the pied piper all doing their best to kill you and your spinning round like a lunatic to some metal.

    BECAUSE THEY ENJOY THAT, HOLY CHRlST IT'S NOT THAT HARD TO UNDERSTAND.

    Building a strong character, until you get to a point where you said character done, get bored, and take a break. Or if it was Diablo2, you would make a new character/build :P But inn Diablo3 not much fun playing other classes but main kinda.

    Edit: Wait for 1.9 news trough. Can always hope its slightly good news... Inn the mean time I barely grind anymore, and just spend time flipping a little bit.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    There's never been a point to it, or any other game for that matter. You either find the grind fun, or you don't.

    Plox. I got your plox right fucking here. - Animalhouse
    I still prefer seeing Thrall rather than blood in my urine, that doesnt make him a good character. - Verdugo

    The point of d3 is to play the auction house. there are plenty of rpgs out there. but if you specifically find it fun to play an auction house, d3 is made for you.

    hardcore mode is more enjoyable, I dont see why anyone would bother with softcore, you cant lose, eventually youll have sick gear and be farming inferno, hardcore on the otherhand, much more jeopardy

    HC is fun until you die due to a disconnect :P
    Yesterday I decided I'm never ever farming solo on HC again. Best part was I had just bought some upgrades with the 40m I had saved up

    Oh well, new barb on the makes... Already lvl30!

    IMO there is really no "point" to any videogames. Either you find them fun or you dont. SC got kind of stale for me so I swapped to HC and I'm enjoying the game again apart from my fit of rage due to my DC death last night :P

    What's the point in playing WOW? Heck I just binned my WOW sub because I find D3 a more rewarding grind... I don't get much time to game, and lately have always chosen D3 over WOW. Granted I'm a LFR hero these days as my guild died in Cata, but still, once you're locked out of raids for the week, everything else in WOW is just 'filler' (imo). So I like being able to jump into D3 anytime and be just as productive (or not) regardless of when/what I last played.

    Yea, prices are WAY down on the AH, I kitted out my Monk so I could do a full inferno clear at 60. Got myself a crappy Skorn, a few Legendary's, some set items and the odd yellow. Mostly with Dex + Vit + CC + CD and Resist all. Wasn't perfect gear, still lots of useless stats, but the point is, it cost me 700k. So for less than a Mil, I can deck out any alt for a full inferno clear.

    The downside to this however, is I haven't managed to sell anything apart from crafting mats and the odd MF/GF/+XP item with decent main stats, even the Legendary's I'm finding with half decent rolls are swamped on the AH for as little as 10k buyout, then you jump to something insane like 700mil+ for the same item just with perfect rolls... or even close to perfect. It's actually worked out alright (imo). Inferno farming (MP0-2) gear is cheap as chips which lets people get right into the endgame.

    There is no point in playing games - that is the point.

    Seems about right :P So the point off games are to make your own...point off it?

    Throwing my 2 cents - i say just right at the beginning that i love farmong and leveling, so D3 gives me already what i want. I play every once in a while, but never got away from it.

    A new thing i'm into right now are the "RP Builds" in which i try to describe some sort of template for my char and then choose the skills limiting myself. Example: the last one is a Thundermage, so only neutral/lighting spells are allowed. Then with these sub-optimal builds i try to reach as far as i can into the game (talking about highest mp possible and i find myself comfortable too).

    When the game gives me no more goals, i create myself other ones. FYI next one will be a tinkerer/no ranged weapon DH.

    well I see D3 as a 'filler' game, when I dont have raids/dailys/alts to level, I go there. Specially because its a game I don't rely on others to have sucess on it. That helped me alot in mid Cata when I was 'stuck' in a fail guild.
    Regarding those paragon 100 players... probably they want to get even better gear

    Paragon and the myth about better gear dropping once 100 is not correct sadly. At about P50 you can easly cap MF/GF, so you barely notice any change from 50 to 100

    Something else I notice alot, is that most, still active, 100p players are all flippers cause that's just how the game works. Only sometimes I see one who aint and thats useally a self-found player or something.

    I'm about to hit paragon 100 on my first character (Barbarian). When I was in my 60's and 70's of paragon my plan was to level a Wizard to 100 too. However these last levels are a true grind and I'm not sure if I have it in me again.

    So when I hit 100 I think I'm going to level a hardcore toon (Just for the achievements). Then probably try to achievement cap. Should be fun because you need to use all of the heroes to achievement cap. However I'm already 70% done and am one step away from Many, many achievements that require multiple parts. So by the middle of July I'll probably be looking for something to do again.

    There is a lot to do people just don't look at it that way. I think you have to be a true diablo fan, and by that I mean rpg fan, to enjoy Diablo III. There is a lot to do you just have to find it. I think I may get into farming lower level legendary items because they sell for a shit ton.

    I tried D3 early on and found it to have none of the joy factor of the first 2 games. So, I guess, there's no point in playing D3.
