in other words players complained about inferno difficulty loot not being all that amazing and it wasnt worth the time to actually beat inferno. real money auction ruined this game in so many ways.

Very misleading article title. Actually they are nerfing defensive stats too so overall its a minor difficulty decrease.

Most importantly they are putting in the Monster Power system (which other sites have the info on), which will let you increase or lower monster power to whatever you want, so make it so hard you cant beat it, or make it lower to just have fun killing things. Your rewards get adjusted accordingly.

Overall this is a great change. It fixes teh problems of mandatory skills which was huge and made my zerker, as well as a few other classes, very limited and boring. And it fixes the problem of some people wanting it harder while others do not since they dont have the absurd amounts of time to get uber gear or want to spend stupid amounts of real money to also get the gear so they can actually play the harder difficulties. Plus its just gonna be nice to be able to bump up the difficulty at lower levels where it was too easy. It makes leveling more fun.

Another failed attempt to get people to come back to a game that they failed so miserably on.
D3 is the most discouraging game I've played ever.
RMAH killed this game
Blizzard knows it
and they are laughing all the way to the bank at the countless amounts of people who are still buying from it.

Who do you think really won in this?
The users who complained about the patch
or the company who are making free money for doing nothing but having a forum open for people to sell things.

RMAH is a very public legal internet mafia

the real problem with the RMAH is that by its nature, items had to be alot rarer. if loot drops were like D2, the RMAH would be filled with rare items and wouldnt fetch much cash. but his just came and bit Blizzard in the ass because faithful players were painstakingly beating inferno over and over again, but didnt get any amazing legendaries or other great loot. Those faithful players started leaving, so blizzard had to make inferno easier just so that beating inferno multiple times wasnt considered too much risk for crap reward.

If RMAH didnt exist, looting would be back to normal D2 days, and people would be more satisfied with what they were finding. having more fun. I lost hope for D3, I definitely wont be getting back into that again.

Torchlight 2 is coming in a few days. MY BODY IS READY!

Don't worry according to my friends the REAL Diablo III is coming out in a few days, it is called Torchlight II. Great many discussions I had with them on why they considered Torchlight II the spiritual successor to Diablo I & II, weither or not you believe me I have seen them play the beta and heard about it and all I have to say is BUY IT. It sounds fun, and all I hear is praise about it thus far. And let us put that blasphemy they call Diablo III to rest and forget it ever existed right next to Duke Nukem Forever.

Only one person on my battle.net friends list still plays D3 (granted, most don't play any Blizzard games anymore - I'm still active in the sc2 scene).

Guess Borderlands, GW and Torchlight sequels are a bit more attractive.

DO NOT touch the fkn game anymore blizzard. It's fine with latest patch which has just about put it back to pre 1.0.3, Should of just left the game alone to begin with. People want a challenge and now you are taking that away. Whole point of Diablo was the grind to get better gear so you can progress. The satisfaction you get after weeks of frustration then finally getting a good drop or making enough gold to buy just that 1 more piece of armour that makes you advance a bit more, That is what it's about. Leave it hard, I whinged at the start thinking the game was way too hard and unbalanced but all it turned out to be was my gear was TOO SHIT and wrong combination of skills. Without youtubing and ruining experience I learned by trial and error the right way to play for my gaming style and now have act 2 and 3 on farm. The game will kick you in the arse when you try to play hero and try to advance too quick while not being ready for it that's what I like. Act 4 is doing that to me currently but once again I will grind it out and try new skills until I have that on farm. Whingers need to stop asking for nerfs and play better/grind more, Yes I said it just as it was said to me when I was in that position a while back.
Noobs!!!! ;)

why people complain about RMAH its the best thing that the game has im level 44 and already made 7 bucks! its half wow monthly fee, for people in third world countries (like me) its almost as much money as i do on my full time job, and in fact if i manage to do 12 dollars per day i can begin to think how it will be to quit my job!, so dont throw !@# at the RMAH, the only thing i dont like its the 10 auction limit, or the lack of customization of the AH GUI

This is the main problem of Blizzard South. All their game are so unperfect that they try to fix with patch.
On Diablo III, this turn to be a NON-SENSE crazy fixing whatever they want. It's not just bug fix... they change the game. I still play and I still feel it's a freaking beta.

Also something Blizzard doesn't said... "they reduce gold items and legendary items drop, 1-2 weeks after 1.04. Fix on game servers". :non:

Agreed on RMAH being a major woe to this game. Blizzard made D3 all about money instead of gameplay, so there fun in playing it. Playing D3 feels like going to work.

I really wish they had single player and LAN modes, so we could avoid the whole RMAH hassle altoghether.

A mediocre dungeon crawler, not made by the key people from the real Diablo team.

Blizzard owns IP so they slapped the Diablo label on it - it was going to sell no matter what. As consumers we don't care enough to be informed before we purchase.

I completely flip-flopped over this game - the few hours of play I was disappointed, then for about a week I had a blast (barbarian), then massive disappointment set in and never went away.

Act 1 is ok. Act 2 is getting lame. Act 3 has epic action but feels Confined, hurried, and just empty (consider this: how much Time transpires in the story during all of Act 3. Three hours??). And Act 4??? Don't get me started - the biggest rush-job in Blizzards history and they know it.

Loot: Ruined, utterly ruined, primarily this was due to BOTH auction houses (not just RMAH), and the crafting system was utterly ineffective in eliminating excess items from the game. The game was farmed 50 times as much due to the RMAH, which even further polluted the virtual economy with items. The belief was players wanted loot "falling from the sky" constantly. In reality, this made everything worth far less - to the gameplay, to the player, and in terms of actual value.

Skills: By no means did I find this system more interesting or engaging than the previous titles.

Major oversight: Awesome physics and sense of power to the barbarians attacks, true for the monk as well. The other three classes - What were they thinking?! If you try a barb or monk first then the other classes -you are screwed, you will hate the feel of them. If a barb can smash a table with his ax and it flies everywhere, why on earth would a powerful wizard be unable to move the table more than a foot with a meteor from the sky??? So stupid and somehow nobody notices. Instead of correcting the Gameplay and Feel, they go on and on about the online requirement and absence of enchantments.

All enemies are the exact same to fight against, for the entire game.

The environment changes every 30 seconds (overkill! .. and makes every area seem way too small), yet they all play the exact same.

The choice of game difficulty, and the implementation of it, was completely wrong from absolutely every angle you can slice it. Even the decision to introduce a "4th difficulty" created a host of problems across the board, I won't even get into it here.

And finally, rather than increasing the depth of the game (sales were guaranteed), thus No Need to "cater to new players", they DECREASED the depth of the game. FAIL!!

People are still talking about this mess? I bought D3 and a week later I stopped playing it cause there is no new content. Mistake 1. Its not a stand alone install 2. requiring an online connection to use the game. 3. releasing D3 10 years late and not sufficently supporting it with new content after everyone has beat it 200 times in 1 week.

Not many people may like Guild Wars, but as far as "game play" goes, the game practically never ends, or it takes allot longer than 5 days.

Torchlight II should be a much better experence that D3 also.
