Yeah, some of the stuff revealed so far disappoints me honestly especially the no offline singleplayer mode thing, but I did have fun building this one:

THAT DAT ATKSPD, plus insane resistances/armor/dodge GOTY!  :getdown:

Actually, I know the text was a joke especially since I'm not sure I trust the way the planner handles the affixes at all, but man, that 3.54-4ish attacks per second before Frenzy plus 23k armor plus insane resistances, what's not to love?

It makes pretty videos, that much we know. Whether or not it makes a pretty good game that'll outlive D2X, the jury's still out on that.

From all the leaks of images from strategy guides that have come out:

Apparently every mob in Inferno has huge spikes in hp AND damage. Don't believe me? This is from a image here.

Yes, that's 170k damage in Inferno, up from 14k damage in Hell. :V

This has me worried that they just did Inferno with these inflated numbers for the sake of being overly difficult, instead of being creative with the difficulty. Keep in mind that Blizzard mentioned that none of their employees have beaten Inferno in all these news, and you can see why I am worried. :/

Exactly what I'm worried about too. You could do the same in D2X by adding some zeros behind monster stats, but the difficulty that adds is artificial - in almost all cases, you'll either have a strategy that simply takes much longer to work but needs no modification, or it becomes impossible. It's such a stark contrast to the design of the Touhou shmups. Of course, they'll probably claim that you can get the gear to beat Inferno later on, just like how in D2X you needed to farm equipment for tackling Hell mode for the melee classes, but that comes with a whole host of game balance problems on its own.

You silly people. Numbers = balance in and RPG!  :derp:

Its the universal language!  bigger numbers, more dangerous, bring stronger gear, get stronger gear!  :derp:

...On a not sarcastic note, yeah. this just seems like inflating the artificial difficulty. I feel bad for anyone on permadeath as they try this.

Apparently every mob in Inferno has huge spikes in hp AND damage.
But, relatively speaking, the jump in that particular monster's stats from Hell to Inferno are pretty similar to, or even less than, the jump in stats from Normal -> Nightmare/Nightmare -> Hell.

Difference being you're expected to reach max level in Hell.  Inferno is at 60 as well, so it's straight up gear/skill/patience/etc.

MotK Diablo 3 night anybody  :V

Though iirc, Diablo 3 only allows 4 people per room so how do people feel about that?

Yeah, the four person limit is a bit... well, too limiting IMO.

Anyways, the final unlock was posted today on the site:

This is apparently the final unlock: an animated movie for D3.

And since they fixed one typo, it can only live on in this image:

Yeah.  Note that while HP/damage/etc for monsters scales proportionally, experience does not.

I did, but who actually reaches max level? :derp:

I dunno, I figure that after running through Hell, you'd still have gotten enough EXP to make Inferno somewhat feasible.

Keep in mind the level cap's only 60.  This was an intentional design (of course).

I imagine if you're not 60 by the time you've beaten Hell, you'd need to go through Hell some more to even stand a chance of surviving in Inferno anyway <_<

From the game code of D2, mobs scale in HP and exp exponentially. Damage is scaled linearly. But the player's exp gain takes huge penalties as you level up that the increased exp is insignificant.

No, the maximum level is lvl 60 so they have free space for addons that will make your farmed equipment totally useless, because you get twice as better items by quests two levels later  :o

Game guide's leaked. Cinematics have leaked. EVERYTHING'S GETTING LEAKED
Re: [Diablo 3] In anticipation of May 15...
« Reply #56 on: May 13, 2012, 10:57:30 pm »
Yeah, indeed, everything is getting leaked at a crazy rate. Although since the writer is Mezten... Oh well, Diablo was never really about a good plot anyways, it's the gameplay that matters the most.

EDIT: On the other hand, you guys'll have 12 hours of gameplay streaming to look forward to from the other regions since Blizzard is doing a worldwide release on May 15th.

Metzen's a friggin' one-trick pony. As one of the strange fellas who actually bothered with the plot in the Diablo games, I can only say that the videos were really disappointing. Without going too in-depth into why, I'll just quote someone from the teamliquid.net thread - "it's technically brilliant but artistically empty". While D3 may be technically more polished than D2 was, the contrast with the storytelling methods in the D2 videos is somewhat like the huge gulf between LotR and something like say, Twilight. The D3 ones look like they were directed by Michael Bay. :/

And Tyrael!!! Wtf did Blizzard do to you?!!!

It's pretty much the same thing that happened to SC2.

Metzen is so damn old. I remember seeing his artwork in the Warcraft 2 manuals.
