As one with almost 3000 hours played in Diablo 3 so far and have been a huge fan since the series started decades ago, this is possibly the worst outcome of what Blizzard considered "Development" for the series.

Especially since they are going to sell the game for $60...

I wouldn't say "EA" of Blizzard. RoS was out for 4 years until the announcement of the Necro. If anything it was reasonbly priced for what it gave you. I wouldn't be surprised if they did the character pack to gain the funds needed to start D4 or whatever projects they are working on.

wow €20 is a reasonable price for one character and they really needed to funds to make another Diablo game.

And not to mention the game itself cost $60 on launch and the expansion that was clearly not worth another 40$ that barely added anything into the game.

And let me guess the switch port is going to cost another $60 on launch what a rip-off for a 6 year old game.

Blizzard is good at coping methods of EA and Todd Howard.

Because they know some people are stupid enough to pay full price for a port

What? Lol. The expansion actually saved the game from ruins and is probably the reason why there's a fanbase/playerbase at all. Just take a look at the enormous patches that D3 received after RoS.

As for the Necro it was reasonably priced for what it was. Just another character. There was no addition to the story or any of the sort, otherwise most of the fan base would have been livid. Would it be nice to have the character for free? Maybe. But at the same time we all understand that D3 isn't a money maker like the other titles. At least they don't force you to buy it. Besides it played similar to the WD considering the builds so it wasnt a game changer.

I will agree with you on the fact that they are trying to sell for $60. That's really absurd considering the age of the game and the fact there are barely any major updates. I feel they should sell it at $20 considering how many ports they already done and how old the game is.

Well that's your opinion but I think you're looking at the game through nostalgia glasses.

if you look at the PC Metacritic you can see that the players don't like the game anymore and last year with blizzcon they have nothing to show for they only had like 30 minutes of time and there was a nothing was dedicated for diablo.

I think path of Exile has a lot more to offer and the game is free to play and i has better score.

It's not nostalgic glasses, it's facts. RoS brought a lot of updates that actually saved the player base back then. But now, not so much. Even I admit I don't play it anymore because I pretty much poured every last bit of entertainment out of it.

Also, I tried PoE, not in my liking. Just because a game has better score doesn't mean everyone will like the game. It's all about preferences. But of course, that's your opinion and you too could be looking through nostalgic glasses of PoE.

It's almost definitely going to be new characters, as it's the same with the xbox and playstation versions.

The RoS part really isn't nostalgic at all. Now, we can argue whether RoS brought the game back FINANCIALLY (since vanilla sols 12 million copies before the expansion) but it 100% saved the game in terms of gameplay, replayability and longevity. The state D3 was in prior to RoS (even if we ignore the RMAH fiasco) was an unmitigated disaster for Blizz, as people just played it a little then saw how pointless it all was and stopped. Now sure, RoS isn't perfect, or even good atm, but back then it was lightyears better than what came before.

you need to stop looking through those rose colored glasses and you need to accept that Diablo 3 is garbage the only people that are playing it right now in my friends list have no time to play anything else.

Nobody plays the game anymore Blizzard has not done anything to the game to make it more appealing too new players that is why the game is dead.

and charging people for one character €20 is ridiculous people have paid full price for both the game and expansion all that Blizzard has done is add 1 character over the pas six years and porting to consoles.

The difference between Diablo 3 and path of Exile one you have pay for and one is free

Not every game should be a "live service" as they call them nowadays. There is nothing wrong with a game having a limited lifespan. The Call Of Duty from 6 years ago isn't played today either.

I have no problem with that either sadly Diablo 3 had a lot of potential they let it go to waste.

You're missing the point of Starym's argument. He's not looking through any "rose tinted" glasses. He's stating a fact, and that's that. You're rather clueless on what "rose tinted glasses" mean.

Your opinion. Just because you think the game is garbage, doesn't mean another person thinks that way too. We all have preferences. Just like how someone out there probably dislikes PoE.

Also, I don't understand why you're basing the whole D3 community on what your friends do. Sometimes I get on to play through the season and that's it. This argument is rather weak.

Actually, there's still an active community believe it or not. And didn't you just say your friends play the game and nothing else? Did you just contradict your other weak argument?

And how does Blizzard not make the game more appealing to new players? Them porting the game to differing consoles actually makes it appealing to new players who do not have the specs or the money to get a computer to play D3. I have a friend who's going to buy the Switch Port because he looks forward to introducing the game to his wife. I say that's a pretty good way of appealing to new players. And who know's how many new players have joined since the Xbox and PlayStation ports.

What? You're just stating the obvious. Just because PoE is free doesn't make it "good" by any means. I've tried it, and I failed to see the appeal to the game. But I am not going around telling people that the game is absolute garbage just because I didn't like it. 

We get it. You hate the game. Now can you stop whining about how much you hate D3 and go back to PoE? I don't understand D3 or PoE players who go out of their way to bash either game and state how superior their game is. I really don't. It's all about preferences and that's that. These kind of arguments really lead to nowhere because you're so hell bent on hating the game and going out of your way to prove it with weak arguments.

Just my thoughts on PoE:

Personally, I played quite a few Hack and Slay, most with friends in coop.

Van Helsing 1-3, Victor Vran, Torchlight

Some of them had quite an interesting setting and characters. Others I just played because it Coop is useful if you have friends in other countries. You talk about this or that and you play a game during that. Solo I'd never have played Torchlight.

 

Path of Exile was / is quite hyped how good is it supposed to be. Frankly, I didn't get it. We played it on a LAN for maybe 3 or 4 hours. After that I never touched it again. Personally, IMO it had absolutly nothing. No interesting stories, no interesting characters. And the gameplay was way worse then the gameplay in D3.

 

I am quite mixed about my feelings on D3.

On the one hand I have played several hundred hours. Because personally, I love the gameplay. As stated above I have played a lot of Hack n Slay. There is not one single game that is close to D3 regarding Gameplay. How you have 100% control of your character all the time, how the skills flow... Every other game was much weaker. Sometimes you stuck there, skills didn't went off as smoothly, your character didn't do exactly what you were expecting, a skill didn't go off as expected...

Considering the gameplay, D3 is great IMO.
 

But on the other hand I agree that D3 is a horrible game.

If you take a look at the characters, storytelling, atmosphere.

It starts halfway decent with Act 1, gets worse at it goes on and is a total disaster when you reach Act 4. Not to speak of Act 5.

If you take a drunken homeless from the street and let him right the story and the dialogue it can't get any worse then D3 actually is.

 

If you compare that to D1 or D2 you can just weep.

 

Same is true for Starcraft 2. The first campaign is ok. But Heart of the Swarm is that badly told that I didn't even bother to buy Legacy of the Void.

Again, the gameplay of HotS is good. But the characters and storytelling, the dialogue is that horrible that it is hard to imagine that this was from the same company that made SC1 + BroodWar.

 

In the past Blizzard was a great company that made great games - regarding every aspect of the game.

Today they have at least good gameplay. Which is more then can be said of most other companies like Ubisoft e.g.

But the "soft skills" - dialogue, story, characters - is disastrous.
Cinematics used to be great - very emotional, with a lot of heart and sould in it. Today most of the cinematics are just boring as hell action sequenzes with stuff blowing up.

it is your opinion but as I mentioned before people have paid over $130 for this game isn't good.

path of Exile has a higher score on Metacritic and on Steam by users so I know what I'm talking about Diablo 3 is it that game at least for me and a friend of mine we don't play the game anymore,

I gave this game many chances in the past including with the necromancer I paid the €20 but unfortunately the game is not for me and does not provide enough content for me to stay besides from doing rifts all day i would rather play Warframe.

Again. Scores on metacritic don't mean jack. And that doesn't prove that you know what you're talking about. So far, all you have been doing is whining about how bad the game is with rather vague and poorly structured arguments. Everyone knows how bad D3 is (despite there being good things about it), but if someone wants to enjoy the game then let them. Don't be a baby and whine about how much you hate it and how much better PoE. You're forcing your own opinions down other's people's throats.

Almost 10000 people bothered to create an account and write a review on Metacritic means jackshit TO YOU.

And when compared with path of Exile there are over 62000 reviews written on Steam are very positive and recent not and to mention the additional 1600 on Metacritic.

I'm not forcing anybody everybody can have their own opinion but you are the one that is denying the numbers.

and Blizzard knows that Diablo is bad because free to play games like path of Exile and Warframe are doing much better why do you think they put so much effort all of a sudden into Diablo because everybody stop playing it.

last year with blizzcon there was not a single space dedicated to Diablo and the only time they had was 30 minutes that is how sad it was.

and I'm done discussing it with you obviously we both share different opinions on this subject.

and if you still don't believe the numbers of metacritic you can always checked Twitch Tracker compare Diablo 3 with path of Exile and Warframe how many people are watching and streaming

I would like it if Activision Blizzard to allow users write reviews in their stores displayed in their store.

And I would love to hear it from other players what they think about their games

Reviews don't mean anything. A review is a reflection of what that person enjoyed out of the game. They can help persuade you if the review is at all conducive to helping the individual decide if they want to try it or not. But in the end, it comes down to personal preference. I tried PoE. I didn't like it. Yet, it has positive reviews, so somehow I am supposed to like it? Your logic is flawed. Stop using reviews as a basis of an argument to decide if the game is good or not. Someone can play PoE and think it's terrible where as someone will think it's great. 

Also, it doesn't take much to create an account on metacritic. Literally takes 5 minutes or so.

Of course you're not. *Insert sarcasm here*

"you need to stop looking through those rose colored glasses and you need to accept that Diablo 3 is garbage the only people that are playing it right now in my friends list have no time to play anything else."



If this doesn't show the fact that you're forcing your opinion down people's throat. Then I dunno what is.

Diablo 3 doesn't get anymore large updates. It's 6 years old, with limited replayability. Of course Diablo 3 is barely going to be watched on stream. I don't doubt PoE gets streamed more, the game is regularly updated. When a game is kept up to date and keeps people doing new things of course there going to be more players, which could lead to more streamers. You're not exactly a genius on this my friend.

Also, The D3 team wasn't making large updates because of Warframe nor PoE. It was mainly due to the Expansion, and a large amounts of angry players such as I who were upset with the direction they took Vanilla D3. Albeit the game is tolerable when the Expansion came out, and even till now. But still has it's issues.

      With the Season of Nightmares in full swing, Blizzard posted a guide on Ancient and Primal items, where they highlight the difference between them and talk about the ongoing Seasonal bonus, which increases your damage dealt and reduces damage taken by a percentage for each Ancient you equip.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Ancient items truly shine in Season 17: so long as you have no Set bonuses equipped, each Ancient you equip will provide you with a massive 750% boost to damage dealt and 4% reduction in damage taken. For those of you who may have taken a break from gathering loot recently, we thought a quick refresher was in order to clear up any confusion about the differences between Legendary, Ancient, and Primal Ancient items.

      In general, Ancient and Primal Ancient items are more powerful versions of Legendary items. They are identical to Legendary items except that their base attributes (damage or armor) and all non-percentile affixes roll higher values for both minimum and maximum possible rolls.
      Ancient & Primal Ancient Items
      The stats on these items will (generally) be tailored to the character class you are playing when the item drops Set items are also able to roll as both Ancient and Primal Ancient You can’t equip more than one item with the same name, even if one is Ancient and the other isn’t Any percentage-based affix will not be boosted (such as Attack Speed, bonus % to skills or % Critical Hit Chance/Damage) Ancient Items
      Only drop for characters who have reached level 70, and only on Torment level difficulties When dropped, Ancient items share the same orange glow as regular Legendaries You must identify the item to see if it’s an Ancient Once identified, Ancient items have an orange border (or green for Set items) around the item tooltip and say "Ancient" in the item description. They drop from all sources including monsters, chests, Kadala, Horadric Caches, Kanai's Cube, and even crafting at the Blacksmith or Jeweler Primal Ancient Items
      When dropped, Primal Ancient items have a red beam and glow Drops from any source of Legendary item in the game, including Horadric Caches, Kadala, and Kanai's Cube, but only after having successfully completed at least a level 70 Greater Rift solo These items are much rarer than Ancient items and have perfect Ancient-level stats on all affixes, including the item’s Legendary Power Primal Ancients & Developer Philosophy
      Primal Ancients are for players who have largely completed gearing for their build or finished their Season Journey but want to continue playing. They’re also for non-Seasonal players who have great gear and spend most of their time gaining Paragon Levels and upgrading Legendary Gems. We wanted to extend the excitement of seeing gear drop or spending Blood Shards at Kadala beyond obtaining Ancients in every slot. Primals provide an avenue for dedicated players to complete a build, without feeling like required upgrades.
      We hope that answers any questions you may have about Ancients and Primal Ancients. Now go get ‘em!
