The reality of Diablo 2 nowadays is that, the game has come to a point where it all boils down to PvP. Very few play Diablo 2 for the sake of PvM. PvP has always been a very large part of the game and still is today more than ever. It would only make sense to allow balance and changes more in the direction of PvP rather than PvM. As far as PvM is concerned, there's nothing else it needs to better it. So yes, alot of these proposed changes now and before by alot of members of the Diablo 2 community are in favor PvP changes. This just happens to be a subject that the majority of the community are concerned about.
