Blizzard surpassed by little software house

General Discussion
After many hours spent in Inferno i finally got the point: end-game sucks.
No gems to find, no special boss, poor crafting system, no special items, nothing.
Diablo 3 works like this: buy gear to run inferno act 1, then buy new gear to run next acts till 4. In other words: grind gold to spent in AH, because drops never give items that fit with your build/gear/class.
Where is end-game, what have you done with world of warcraft experience?
People want end-game stuff to do for years. Here there's nothing to do. That's the point.

Here there's a changelog for a semi-unknow hack n' slash alternative:

I cover the name of the game because i don't want to appear as a fun. I'm a Diablo fun and i want this game to really rocks.

In the upcoming XYXYXY patch, we’re revamping XYXYXY ’s end-game to introduce a new system known as Maps. Players in high level areas can find Map items that allow them to travel to random end-game areas featuring bosses, awesome equipment and more Maps.
Maps can drop as normal, magic, rare or unique with higher rarity Maps yielding more items. Using a Map item opens six portals to the area, which can each only be used once. Like most other items in XYXYXY, Maps have mods that change their risks and rewards. Map mods can affect the size or complexity of the level, monster packs, monster properties or even alter characters while in the level. Players can modify Maps themselves using their currency items. For example, you can use an item to turn a normal Map into a magic Map, or use an item to reroll its mods.


Do you even realize how amazing is this feature??? It's a dramatic change, it's a reason to spend time, ages in the game.
And like that could be dozens of similar ideas, like essences (from titan quest) regular drops from some kind of mobs, more randomization of zones, special dungeons or zones, more gems or jewels to put in sockets, gathering professions, etc, etc. etc.

If you put a rmah is because you want from Diablo 3 another incoming of dollars, other then product sells in itself.
So why you choose to put ingame so few items and stuff to drop? No okay, there's grey and white...........
Think about it.
what people are mistaking about D3 that not only end game is missing.

Did you get suitable loot when you advanced from normal to nightmare? or from nightmare to hell? no, it is all about buying stuff from auction houses some are probably put out there by Blizz theme selves to put the "carrot on a stick" and make players continue in pursuing them.

it is always a brick wall that you hit and no option is left but to farm gold and then buy stuff but this takes out the fun of it and finding gear for yourself whereas -I dont know how many times- they stated that that is the most important..

Leveling up is too fast and not really rewarding either just there for an excuse as well...
lol get over yourself i've found plenty of 100 million + item drop you're just unlucky ... in a sense you're the same as that old guy in front of casino complaining the slot machine ate his last 25 cents
Torchlight 1 system was neat.
Path of Exile has great promise and 100x better than this nerfed piece of garbage.
people still don't realize one fact that this game is only 1month old. You try to compare mmo thats probably 1year or more old to 1month game, look at wow it started whit not much content and etc. maybe it was more polished but still look where it is now every month or so new content updates every year major patches/updates that adds a lot of things, even look at diablo2 if you don't want to compare it to wow d2 started whit what 5 classes 4 acts. it had a lot of patches 1 expansion but look at time slots it had all of those things. So if you don't like the game go play other games and return to diablo in end of this year or 2013 1quarter it will have more stuff added maybe more of the bugs fixes etc.etc. at least iam now playing other mmo waiting for guild wars2 will play it then maybe at October will return to diablo 3 and maybe then i can enjoy game as of rest of you =]
haha, you honestly think d3 will have content updates and for free none the less, yeah right, that will happend... expansion for 60€ is my bet if anything at all...

1 month or 1 year: You shouldn't have to pay 60 euro for a beta and continue paying via RMAH in order to advance.

In any case, I'm betting that you will be charged in order to get access to the options that will make the game better.

BTW: I hope I lose the bet.

Yeah, multiple 100m+ drops, hahahaha. I bet you did.
i did not use RMAH and iam at inferno 4act prime evil quest(i even spend like 1-2mil on my char gear), actually i even sold some items on RMAH and made some cash. Still i have to agree on that fact that game came unpolished thats probably activisions influence to push game faster cut off some content and push rmah as fast as possible, but yeah expansion probably will cost some money cause if you look at d2 expansion and wow expansion they all cost a buck.

game is balanced 1-60, u can complete it without ah.

but inferno rates are intensionally decreased - u can't just proceed reliing only on your loot.

That was made because after you kill diablo inferno there is nothing more at all for u here.

I loled. You see this is not an MMO. They HAD to make a complete game. They HAD to learn from the mistakes they made in d2. It's an aRPG not an MMO. an MMo has more depth, more encounters and significantly different loot system. Don';t compare apples with oranges.

After 10 years of waiting you asking me to wait another year to see (maybe) a better product?...ilarious.
Diablo 3 don't have the contents i have been expected after all this years and after the big experience that Diablo2 and WOW give to blizzard. That's the point.

Didn't have to go that far to find that out. After Act 1 in nightmare you could already see where this was going. Same dungeons, same enemies, same story, same irritating dialogue between followers and more junk items.
Still, could be fun in short bursts of 10-20 minutes to fill the time between dinner and the news at eight.

rofl uh huh, i agree, the guy *had* to find tonnes of them , their all over the place , drops like this are normal.

if the items werent junk i would agree , but blizzard seems to really think that this new item system is the *cats a$$ so to say. Hope that any a bannable offense , im running on a thin wire these days.

Bottom line is , in regards to what the good items should be, legendaries , its almost as if they didnt design any items at all , but instead brought in these low stat, MMO items and changed the name string to resemble old diablo items.

one mans opinion.

...And that is no excuse to have less features than a ten year old game, or be less innovative and fun than a f2p game still in closed beta.

To take up on your statement. People still don't realize that just because it's made by Blizzard means not necessarily it's a great game, or bound to be.
The AH not just the RMAH is the end of Diablo series as a whole. Not point grinding stuff when tou may as well buy it.

No amount of gridning wil get you the perfect set in a game where items are nerfed into the ground making you buy stuff with in game gold or Real cash End of.
oh but hell yea, entrance items sound AWESOME... I dunno if anybody of you ever played Cabal Online, but I wouldnt hesitate to rip off that... special, ultra hard and very rewarding dungeons that cannot be entered without a key of sorts, that could drop or you would have to craft it ooor compose it from parts that would drop... mmmh.

Sad thing is, this is one drop in the sea of amazing suggestions that can be found around here and I have my doubts anyone pays much attention to those.

No it's not 1 month old. It's been in development for more than 6 years.. It's not some new game which is young. Its "#¤"%# DIABLO 3 !!

People expected more
