Hi, old school diablo-ist reporting in.
I'd love to play non-stop at launch. Im sure its fun to join in the race to inferno at 100 miles an hour, being one of the first to see all of the new content. However, sadly, Im not a teenager any more, and I have a job.
I'm probably gonna switch between all of the characters all the way through normal, working out which one I like best, and give them all a fair try (and I think twinking and hand-me-downs will work better this way, between characters that arent too many levels apart)
So, in the first month, when some people out there will have probably beaten inferno solo... I'll probably just be going through normal or nightmare for the 2nd or 3rd time. Although I do enjoy multiplayer, done right, with friendly people that match your playstyle, I think its more fun, and the way diablo was 'meant' to be played (although sometimes I play solo too).
I like to enjoy the game, dont mind either exploring the full maps or just looking for the objective/exit although Im definitely not a rusher - if Im working towards the objective rather than a complete map-clear, Im stil gonna kill every monster I see and break a few barrels along the way and pick up all the gold etc.
I like to listen to the quests rather than just click through. I wait for players Im playing with at doors etc, and prefer to stick together (I think the new individual loot drop system actually rewards playing like this anyway!!). I like to swap and help each other with items. I dont mind a bit of in game chat. I'll happily start a new character off if someone else wants to do that and we dont have any decent level-matched characters (I'll have at least 5 spare as Im not playing hardcore).
Im not fussed about anything outside of battlenet, voice server, forums etc, chat channels. But just having a few extra friends to play multiplayer with, for me, will improve my diablo 3 experience by a good margin, and thats the reason for this post.
If you want an extra ally to smash some monsters, and have a similar playstyle, send me a PM with your battletag, or include it below, and I'll add you at launch.
Not long till 15 May now!!
