    Thumbs up Stereotypes in Diablo 3?

    I think there's so many stereotypes in Diablo 3 already, that I simply had to make a video showing just a few of them. Do you think I missed any common ones?

    Re: Stereotypes in Diablo 3?

    I am the Diablo 2 fanboy

    I've only played the open beta weekend, but I don't really see much of those stereotypes coming to light. I bet there would be stereotypes from D2 like:
    The AFKer (in town all the time and does nothing)
    -the beggar (begs for gear)
    -the guy who gets killed a lot
    -the loot whore (comes along and doesn't help but take loot)
    -the leecher (guy who just stands by to leech experience but doesn't kill)
    -the lonewolf (joins game but doesn't join party and ventures off by himself doing quests that the group isn't doing)
    -the douchebag (comes in and finishes key quests without partying or without you)
    -the showoff (guy who joins and acts tough by questing and letting the mob surround him making his char take all the beating and rarely fight back, or worse yet fights naked/with crappy gear)

    I gotta agree with you on the leecher and lootwhore. The rest kinda can't be part of D3 because the game is built in a whole different way

    Quite funny, you could've probably have exaggerated even more! As for myself, I fit the nerd/hardcore.

    Yeah true, I already have ideas for a lot more tho So if you wanna see it, make sure to subscribe to the channel - I think they're gonna be hilarious ^^

    And are you gonna do a hardcore release 48 hour straight play or something like that then?

    the douchbag one wont work in d3. luckily they fixed that for us.

    the lootwhore and leech is the same thing in d3.


    really the one thing i am most concerned about is someone making a game. taking the waypoint and luring a ton of monsters to it then porting back to town. then that person will open his game to the public and when they join and take portal they get owned. could be a real issue come hc.

    I'm really looking forward to this new type of player in D3: The guy that doesn't realize mindless boss runs aren't the optimal strategy anymore.
