The will was there the ability no. I am not complaining. I even caught up to the guys I play with levelwise. I guess my point is cry me a river about launch day if you want, I do not care. Many games have launch issues. WoW had HORRIBLE launch issues. SWTOR had horrible launch issues. I could name others many from developers that you would not expect launch issues from. Problem is sometimes they are unpredictable.

It just went out an hour or two ago.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

I don't even think about  the AH. I enjoy the game for what it is and so far I'm having a good time. The only complaint I have is it would have been nice to have a option to ramp the difficulty up. I would like to see this option in MMO's too.

If it went out it only did briefly. Seriously.... you care about a few minutes? (plays the worlds tiniest violin)

If you do not like it go back to WoW. WoW disconnects too you know.

Yeah, WoW disconnects too.

 

Actually, it was disconnected at exactly the same time.

I dunno, I look at DIablo 3 and I am like.. After 12 years this game is seriously the best they could have done with all that devolopment time? I was expecting alot more after it being in dev for so long.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

Sometimes I have a little bit of lag, which is a minor annoyance. But other than that, the game is amazing!

I have the feeling, that most people who say the game sucks, haven't actually played it. Because the game is very well made for what it is, a hack and slash with lots of loot. Still my opinion ofcourse.

Also the comparison with PoE.. I play both. I really like PoE. I prefer the customization in PoE actually. But the combat is way behind. Diablo 3 plays excellent and smooth.

The game plays well and doesn't need a huge amount of horsepower to play well.

It will be nice to waste some time, playing it.


Funny, we avoided that by playing the game through LAN parties and single player mode. The concept of Battlenet is what is flawed, not the game. Sadly they've seen fit to give the consumer no other option this time round. And that's gone well for them this week hasn't it.


Tard nails it.  They made a design choice that led to this mess, as well as simply pissing off quite a few people that would otherwise have become content customers.  They could have provided an offline option for those interested in a single player experience, but they *chose* to force everyone online.  Not only was it unnecessary, it was plain stupid.

So yes you are forced online in the singleplayer part. But this is a good thing. This means you can make use of the RMT AH and buy yourself some cool gear with real money. That this means you get some lag and rubberbanding now and then is just a small price to pay for such convenience.

That it might seem that Blizzard only forced the singleplayer part online to broaden their reach with their RMT AH and earn more money, is nothing but a cynical point of view! Everyone knows they put all their hard earned cash back into the development of Diablo 3!

So it is your responsibility as player to make some purchases in the RMT AH , making sure that Blizzard will get the funds to get rid of the lag and create stable servers for your single player game! It comes all down to you!

I have met so many uninformed people who bought the game thinking it was like Skyrim or Dragon Age (laughs) this game never was or will be meant to be like those this is a Dungeon crawler game.

regardless of your opinion that diablo was never meant to be a dungeon crawler game,

D1 and D2 could be played like that if players chose to

- nothing wrong with variety in playstyle options

.... Except that. Starcraft 2 didn't have these issues. Diablo III, inspite of their claims, is a single player game with multiplayer features added on. The content is absolutely no different from one to the other, it just has the same ramped difficultly that D2 had. The most 'multiplayer' feature the game has is the RMT AH that they forced on us players.

Furthermore, it's not just the day 1 server downs, though to call that anything short of a disaster is a bit delusional. We are also forced to use battle.net, for a single player game, which not only clearly has problems staying online, but also has lag issues as well. In the past, if I wanted to play w/ my friends, we could either LAN it or setup our own network, and not have to worry about any of that stuff. Now it's all forced on us.

Maybe you guys like the direction this game has been taken in. Personally, I do not want to be reliant on an internet connection & unreliable servers to play anything that doesn't have to have them. I wouldn't accept this from skyrim, or arkham city, or uncharted; and it's not required for Torchlight 2. So I really don't see how it's all of a sudden 'okay'. If this was happening w/ any other title, I don't think people would be as accepting.

Agree with the custimization in PoE. So fun messing with all the different builkds you can do for the different classes and being able to transfer your skill gems around and deck out any character the way you want and create unexpected combinations of skills designed for different classes which actually work very well with your current build/class.

As far as the combat, I havent seen any huge problems with it. They recently improved the AI and aletered some of the skill effects and skills that mobs use and the game has gotten a lot more challenging, and they are continuing to work on adding new content and other improvements so maybe whatever you feel is lacking in combat will get improved as well.

IF diablo 3 was not supposed to be a dungeon crawler game what do you think it was? IT certainly was not a full blown RPG like Final Fantasy VII a real full blown RPG of the time. Granted blizzard was younger and smaller at the time, but they already 3 hit games under their belt with Warcraft 1 and 2, and The Lost Vikings for SNES.

(rolls eyes) I have had almost NO lag online and as for the RMT AH you do not hae to use it. Heck it is not even in game right now. They do have a in game money AH though you can use. (plays another tiny violen)

You think one day is a disaster?!?!?! grow up! As for it being single player, I have played this game almost exclusivly as a multiplayer game. The loot is better and it is harder, which means more fun. I have never had problems with battle.net in this game or in Starcraft II. Frankly I did not know people had LAN parties anymore. You do not want to be reliant on the internet? Do you use a 14400 modem at your place? I did not know those still existed. We accept it becuase we are not whiners like you.

That it might seem that Blizzard only forced the singleplayer part online to broaden their reach with their RMT AH and earn more money, is nothing but a cynical point of view! Everyone knows they put all their hard earned cash back into the development of Diablo 3!

So it is your responsibility as player to make some purchases in the RMT AH , making sure that Blizzard will get the funds to get rid of the lag and create stable servers for your single player game! It comes all down to you!

(rolls eyes) I have had almost NO lag online and as for the RMT AH you do not hae to use it. Heck it is not even in game right now. They do have a in game money AH though you can use. (plays another tiny violen)

Any lag is ridiculous for the single player part. And if you are not interested in the RMT AH then being forced online to enjoy whatever little lag there might be makes it even more laughable. This design mainly caters to Blizzard that wants to skim off more money from the RMT AH, so lets give everyone access to it, no matter if they are interested or not. For anyone who isn't interested in the AH or co op, the online part is only an inconvenience. Imo, the lack of an offline mode for players is Blizzard giving you the finger.

What is next? Bloody weekly server maintenance for a single player game?

I think it is hilarious how many people are trying to make up excuses for this. 'Diablo 3 is a MMO! and it is normal that a MMO launch has issues! '

Granted blizzard was younger and smaller at the time, but they already 3 hit games under their belt with Warcraft 1 and 2, and The Lost Vikings for SNES.

D3 is a dungeon crawler -- i edited my orginal response to you

 

my apologies

Well Diablo 1 was also was waht I was trying to explain. It was the beginning of a new kind of game it was the first or one of the first dungeon crawlers.
