I wasn't looking for a game that turns everyone into gold farmers. I wanted a game where I could find loot for myself, not find loot then AH or vender 99.9% of it.

 

The loot drops are a joke, the crafting is a joke, and the RMAH is a joke. Unfortunately, I'm not laughing.

Gambling in D2 was perfectly acceptable, yet crafting in D3 is constantly bitched about, even though its almost exactly the same mechanic (a bit less random though).

People love to forget the fact that 99% of the drops in D2 were vendor trash, if they were even worth picking up in the first place. Same goes for Torchlight 1 & 2, Diablo 1, NOX, Titan Quest, and pretty much every other ARPG ever made. Yet only D3 gets flak for it, go figure right?

People bitch about having to farm for gear, but had absolutely no problems whatsoever doing 500000000 Baal / Andy / Nithalak runs in a row to *gasp* GET GEAR. Wow, imagine that, farming for gear was fine and fun in D2 for some reason, yet in D3 it's considered a bad thing.

The hypocrisy shown by most critics of D3 is simply astounding. Most are great examples of the, "But mommy, I want to win  NOW!!!", generation of gamers.

Oh, and I do still play and enjoy the game.

 Yawn.

 

The tired old "gamers" who tell everyone grinding for hours and hours and hours for nothing is the fun are no better than those of use who want to play for a few hours and have something to show for it. I don't want to have to play for 10 hours straight in order to get one or if im lucky two items that are somewhat useful.

while you yawn your way from one game to the other, we "old" gamers are still having fun in those games.

It's realy strange for me to see some "young" gamers getting in their yawn (boredom) state after playing anything the market throws at them.....it don't matter if they play 2 or 10 games.....every game gets boring to them within 7 days it seems.

Still they play ALLMOST EVERY game that comes out and nothing seems good enough........maybe they just dont like games but only play them because they are ALWAYS(?) bored?

Anyways.....just saying.....some people like grinding for gear so we dont get bored.

Personaly i would be very upset if i could get the best gear in a game within the first months.......to me the grind is part of the adventure, specially in a grindgame like diablo.

While the game is fun I think it is an insult to the Diablo series, if it weren't apart of the Diablo series I'd be okay with this game. What ruined it most for me was that the story was terrible and that it was constantly shoved down your throat, plus you couldn't really decide whether or not you wanted to skip a quest like in Diablo 2, which made it extremely frustrating playing through the game a second time. I didn't really like the new art direction of the game either, felt too WoWish for me and I hated that game. It was really disappointing how all the bosses had something lame to say, especially azmodan and fucking diablo... please just shut the fuck up, your pointless dialogue is pointless.

Just mediocore games in general, and D3 is mediocore...but millions of *suckers* *ahem* people did this instead of waiting for reviews and people to actually complete the game than buying on hype only..

I got the game as a gift.  I got like 1600 achievement points.  Then, the RMT auction house launched, and I quit and uninstalled.  Even though I played more on Hardcore mode at that point, it was the principle of the thing.

I bought Skyrim, Dead Island and Alan Wake on the Steam Summer Sale...but I don't have time for them because I'm too busy playing D3.

Still playing but no where near as much as I was. It's more an Auction House Simulator now than a Diablo Clone (Don't really class it as teh 3rd Diablo incarnation, it just doesnt seem right to me).

I have gotten 3 characters to 60, and using a Barbarian (360 Magic Find) to farm for  Magic Items over and over, and it sure gets tedious doing so as 99.9% of drops are vendor trash. But I am a loyal fan and shall continue to play and see how patches (Hopefully) improve theg ameplay as time goes on, as I would like to see my friends return and play again. Time will tell I suppose.

Cheers

I haven't officially quit, but I also haven't gotten the urge to play in a week or so.  It's all about the way they designed the end game and nerfed drop rates to make people use the AH.  I also don't like the simplistic stats on gear compared with D2.

 

I'm not even that confident they will change things such that I'll really love the game at max level.  I certainly have no interest in PVP.  Ever since Bashiok stated they were aware that end game was crap, they've been pretty tight lipped about admitting any faults.  "Fatty" Wilson has even claimed that they are happy with the game.

 

Whatever, I'm pretty much over it at this point.  I know TL2 and POE won't really be any better though, they just have different reasons than D3 for being crappy.

Have to agree with Frodo,

 

While the gameplay is fine, I really think the game is  unfixable due to core game design decisions being bad, 1 of the big things that killed it for is the fact you can't start a game and just bounce through the acts using the waypoints. Having to constantly endure cutscene after cutscene then leave game to start a new game on someother act is just a full on pain in the arse.

Made me laugh when Jay Wilson said he wanted people to focus on the story, it's like ok that's fine the 1st time you play through or even the 2nd but god Diablo was always about smashing through levels to find items rinse repeat, why they wouldn't add an option to turn the damn things off is beyond me and some of the cutscenes are hilarious it's just a page in a book telling you what you just did around 15 seconds ago  like when you kill Maghda go back to town little pages opens up sayin the witch is dead, I mean wtf, i know I just killed the bitch.

 

Also the inflation of gold nailed the AH hard due to the farm exploits + other exploits and gold farmers the AH is just a complete mess and tbh I don't kow how it can be fixed at this stage they'd need to make a ladder mode to start fresh like D2.

 

Itemization is laughable (yes I know they're fixing legendarys) but I think the items in general are a joke, this comes down to the idea for classes to use a certain stat to increase damage. Getting items that have +140 dex + 80 strength and + 5% damage to a witch doctor skill is like yeah brilliant idea, just seems like a lazy way to implement randomization.

 

All in all to me at least it seems like they kept messing with ingame systems from skill points to stats upto the point where they ran out of time and had to push the game out in a half botched state.

Not playing. It wasn't that fun. I don't see it becoming that fun in the future,because I don't think Blizzard's goals and mine align.

I answered no, but there should have been a "No, but going to go back to it later" option in the poll. I will 99% sure get the expansion and pick up the game with regular intervals over the coming years, just like with Diablo 2.

To me its one of those games like torchlight that you just get the rush to play it for a few hrs then drop it for a few days..i think its an ok game..but imo they should be giving free content updates to this game because i think we were all sold a bit short on this game.dont know what it cost in US but in the UK it was about £50..which is damned extortionate for this game.

If you bought D3 expecting a lot of unique content, then yeah it does seem like a rip off. But if you bought it knowing you'd be repeating the content then it's an awesome deal.

I'm still playing... still on Act I Inferno since gear I need to progress is hard to get as a drop and I'm not spending a ridiculous amount on either of the AH's.

 

I bought it knowing what to expect though, so still having fun.

I haven't played in a few weeks and I stopped looking at the official forums.  There's just so much that needs to be fixed and with GW2 coming out I'm not too concerned.  I'll probably buy TL2 if I get the itch for an ARPG.

Why did I play D2 for years and yet quit D3 after a few weeks.  It's because of the fact that D3 gets boring very quickly once you reach Inferno and are stuck farming gold rather than useful items.  They also simplified the D2 item stat system to a ridiculous level.  It's all about a main stat, vitality, all resist and then any others you can get in your RNG.  No crushing blow, no charms, no runewords ...

 

They also haven't figured out how to get rid of bots after all these years.

 Gold has always been worthless in Diablo, it still is. Why would you farm for it?  Why would anyone bot for something so easily obtained? Items have value gold doesn't.

Still playing with my friends and leveling up a Sorc.

Really like the voice actress for the sorc. I especially like the chemistry with the enchantress companion and my sorc.
