I really hope Blizzard will not let Diablo 3 be all silent throughout the whole winter holiday with no updates or patches, that would be depressing.

And now I'm not talking about a Christmas event/theme, since this is what they shouldn't focus on when the game is not even finished.

Hopefully the holidays will not be all silent, at least I hope so.

I get that you guys are eager to know more about what is being worked on to improve the game, but I don't have any new information on this right now unfortunately. I do know that we have some updates on the way though, amongst them a PvP blog... this PvP blog was announced previously as coming very soon, but it seems it is just soon now.

No Fallen Maniacs dressed as Santa and Goblin sack full of loot? Reconsider that.

Yeah I really hoped for that PvP blog to come out, but I guess that's not happening for some time now. I guess we will see some patch notes for 1.0.7 soon though.

free to play compared to pay to play... hmmm


D3 is free to play? Why did I pay 60$ for the box then?

there are unofficial offline modes.
that's all i can say.

still, because it is not officially possible to play offline D3 still doesn't qualify as an mmorpg.

Mass Multiplayer Online Roll Playing game

that's the difference.
public games only allow 4 players max, where as a mmorpg has no limit except maybe for certain ingame events maybe.

however if you don't play public games you will not ever meet another player in the actual play itself, except for the chat of course.

I can't be totally agree with this (but I see your point, and it's a good one)

But, don't forget the ingame AH + RMAH as a really big impact on the game experience. Blizz' stated a while ago that the high randomizeness (did this word exist ?) of looting and item quality where tune because the AH is another way to get great items. (same goes for the crafting; I always forget that it even exist)

So, even if playing alone, or only with buddies : your gaming experience is tune around the AH's economy.

When someone is botting somewhere : it ensure the game is harder for me.
When someone is farming AH, buying cheap items, and selling them more expensive (like traiders in reall life) : it further this effects.

So, a player that actually play the game, have to compete with botters/traders.
So in the end, even when playing alone, the gaming experience is, in my opinion (but I might be wrong) tune around the massively experienced part of the game.

true, very true. introducing the AH and the RMAH has only made D3 more attractive to bot, simply because it's a profit game. i'm not accusing any people, but the fact of the matter is that in D3 at this point botters control the economy, not blizzard, not us players, but the bots.

if they start mass duping or mass crafting gems, gem prices will drop, if they start mass duping items, these items will drop in value, and another side effect is the prices on rmah for gold dropping faster then the panties of paris hilton.

edit:

on the other hand, if blizzard would take out both the ah and rmah, and leave it to person to person trading only, it will just increase the chances of getting scammed.

so either way, it's really a lose - lose situation for a honest player trying to enjoy D3 to the fullest extend. and since by now an offline mode is nearly impossible since they'd have to completely rewrite the game, we just have to hope for the best.

which in term means that blizzard needs to pickup on the whole reporting thing (since it's broken, and i seriously doubt the "send an email"method), fix numerous other bugs and maybe implement a few safety switch on both ingame botting and AH botting.

ah botting can be done through the same method as the online authenticator, if you want to buy something, the AH asks you to type in the code on the image above (codes would be random)

ingame botting is a little more difficult since nobody wants a screen popping up asking for a code every hour or so.
but a way of controlling it, however i'm not saying that everybody will agree with this, is that every account who is online for 24 hours and this for 2+ days straight, receives an immediate IP-ban. (since no healthy human being would be fiscally able to play a game for 48 hours and do the same run over and over again).

No problem to be online for 2 days or more. Just dont log out when you sleep or whatever you do

--- Oh btw, Moldran is going to play for 50 hours straight in 1-2 weeks
