Patch 1.0.8 added a bunch of new Battle.net social options, and many players have questions about how they work. Thus the CMs have been offering helpful tips which you might find useful.
How come no public games in ACT 2?
Its actually the better act. The invisible mobs in Dalgur Oasis haven’t been nerfed and they come in HUGE groups which means loot and xp….yet I see everyone on act 1?
Grimiku: I’ve been having a lot of fun playing public games (Act II included) since patch 1.0.8, and haven’t had any problems finding a game to join. I have a suggestion that might help you find Public Games if you don’t care what quest they’re on.
In patch 1.0.8, we added a feature to Public Game quest selection called “Any Quest” to help players quickly join games and get into the action, and here’s how to find it if you haven’t seen it yet. After clicking the “Public Games” option you’re prompted to select a quest, and each Act now has an option called “Any Quest” at the top of its quest list (you can also select “Any Act- Any Quest” at the very top). I hope this helps you find games with like-minded Nephalem to adventure with!
Elsewhere, a fan brought up a bug that’s been bugging me. I don’t know the point in posting about this in the general forum when it’s obviously a bug report, but at least now we know that fixing it is on the agenda.
Have you guys played with the new social tools? Along with the ones mentioned above, you can now set a sort of “away” IM message that others on your friends list see when they log on. I don’t know if the profanity filters work on it, but you’re free to try if you want to leave a special greeting for a special someone.
