So how about you play the D2 way? Don't re-spec. Seriously. Instead of forcing the entire player-base to play around your preference, let Blizzard give you the power to play the way you want. Misplaced a point? Re-roll. Don't force me to make a new character, give me the option to choose. You want to pay a penalty for it? Throw away some gold. Whatever you want. The game is yours to fulfill.
Why would i ever do that though? if the game is designed for me to switch out whenever i want that's how I'll end up playing. Every class is basically every build now minus gear & runes. A build doesn't mean anything anymore. A build meant an entire character before respecs were introduced in D2. A limited respec for mistakes only could of solved the problem while also giving people an incentive to roll another of the same class to try out a completely different build. Now your basically just a generic class build with every skill at max level. You will try out thousands of builds just in the leveling process...
Q u o t e:
Personally, I agree with this point to an extent. I wish it wasn't entirely online. There are moments I might want to play offline. However, even if this feature existed, I know the vast majority of players would make an online character first. Even if they wanted to solo the game first (which I do), we'd probably solo a multiplayer character.
That being said, I would still prefer offline play just in case.
Well i wish i could be a part of that majority, it would make everything easier. Only problem is i can't unfortunately as my connection sort of sucks & is 300ms away from the servers. I will have to play single player(the mode i prefer) with lag as blizzard took away my choice.
Q u o t e:
First of all, regardless of whether or not you like WoW, WoW did a lot of things right. That's why it's been successful. Successful features, regardless of what they are, are implemented into other games. I could argue WoW has far more in common with Diablo 2 than Diablo 3 with WoW. Games evolve from each other.
Oh I agree, except for things like the glows on weapons & eyes & the running animations. They look like they are taken directly out of WoW or made by the same guy. It looks terrible in Diablo, at least they could of made them look different & removed the glowing eyes completely.
Q u o t e:
Now you're just whining. Over development? Are you kidding me? Blizzard doesn't have a reputation for releasing *%#@ty games. I don't even know what over developed is... I mean, are the game reviews going to read, "We'd give it 5/5 stars but because it took too long for them to make it amazing we're giving them a 4." - yeah, right.
You obviously have no idea what I'm talking about so i think I'll leave it at that...
Q u o t e:
Just 10? You can have 2 characters of each class. If you don't like the end game or just like leveling, put your chars gear in the stash and delete him and level again, if that's what you enjoy. I just can't imagine a reason to have more than 10 characters. You want a different build - just change your spec. You want to level with a different spec than you did before - delete one of your 10 chars and level again.
Damn Blizzard and their amazing games.
Well this is to do with respecs. You would need more than 10 characters if you needed multiple characters of the same class to try new builds. Currently I'll only ever make about 5 characters total. Once I've got a L60 i would of tried every skill multiple times & all the rune combos, i wouldn't need to delete & reroll because I've already experienced it.
I very much doubt I'll enjoy every class to L60. I may end up with 2 classes to L60, 3 others to L30 & are left with only end game content(as long as it soloable) & item selling(as ill never bother wearing the best gear if i can sell it for some good cash instead)
