I should probably not bother but Ill reply just for s**** and giggles.
First of all were exactly did I 'DEFEND PAY TO WIN' ??? First of all you cant WIN D3 its a non competitive ARPG loot game, there is no WINNING. So thats pathetic right there if you think there is a way to WIN. If somebody wants to spend real world money on virtual pixels to inflate their epeen why should I care exactly? What difference does it make to me... cause so far Im not seeing it. Ive played lots of genuine Pay To Win games (mostly Asian MMOs) and let me tell you if you think D3 is PTW, your sadly deluded.
Second what do you even mean by 'milking mechanics' I never even mentioned any game systems to defend them or otherwise? I just think your being a tad ridiculous there.
For the record I wasnt overly happy with D3 at release, I thought Inferno and the whole drop system back then was awful, I actually stopped playing for about 3 months (rather than moaning endlessly on here) they released a few patches and mostly those have improved the game tons. Its still not quite at GREAT levels, but its a decent solid ARPG thats WAAAAAYYY better than any other current gen ARPG around (and yes Ive played POE extensively, had a few level 60+ characters in early beta) Its more dynamic, more modern, more forward thinking.
I just dont get the people who pine for D2, this is a new direction, deal with it. I loved D2:LOD back in the day, but I also loved Grandmaster Flash and furious five back in the day. I dont want to reincarnate them now, Im happy with them both remaining a good memory. If you all love D2 so much why arent you playing it?? Theres a great community made Mod for D2 that greatly expands the gameplay as well offering HD graphics support. Download that (its free) and go play that if D3 is such a dissapointment.
D3 is a new direction, not everyone likes new stuff, some people get snobby and elitist and just poo poo anything that tries something different. Some people are just anachronistic and cant bare to see things change, thats cool there are plenty of retro games of this type out there for you. I get your all butthurt you spent money on a game you didn't like but really its been like what 8 months now... move on already
