As we know there should be have at least 5 different professions instead of 4 in Diablo 3, but why? Just considering the PS3 have at most four controllers? In fact is not the case, the cooperation mode of team scale design decisions influenced by many factors, host version of development is not one of the factors.
While let more players in a team fighting may sound very attractive (and even in practice for other games), but there are some reasons to make us believe that four players is really the ideal party size for Diablo III.
First of all, a team of up to four people limit doesn't have anything to do with the number of professional players can choose that is one of the reasons they choose four cooperation modes, if the cooperation mode allows five common game, the players will feel they are forced to team must contain every profession. This is not true?designers want players to feel they can in any combination to adventure in the land of the asylum, both has four different professional team and (for example) contains two barbarians and witch doctors.
Another factor is player contributions. You can really notice the contribution of each person at four players. Whenever you add another person to a group, though, each player’s personal contribution is diminished. This has some bad side effects. For example, if you swing at a monster, it feels good when you're doing enough damage to see its health bar move. At four players, it’s already possible to be punching a monster and not feel like you're doing any damage because the bar is moving slowly. This stigma would get worse as you add more people to a group.
Other factors were that of screen noise and the number of players you can follow. At four players you were still able to easily keep track of your party-members, but that beyond this size it became more and more difficult to monitor everything on screen. Additionally, the screen noise and spell effects generated by five players simply felt too overwhelming.
In general, the team of four people now is very satisfied with the size. What do you think of that?
