Just like to get everyones opinions on the differences between the 2 games.
Do you think inferno is better end-game than d2s boss runs and special event like ubers that were eventually added?
Will the item hunt last nearly as long as in d2 with the auction house and items being a little less diverse?
Which skill system do you prefer?
Do you think that the PvP will greatly help the games longevity, and do u prefer it to the d2 dueling system?
Are you enjoying playing d3 as much as d2?
Do you think the revamping of crafting and legendarys will help the item diversity, or should something like the runeword system be implemented?
Char customization, better in d2 or d3? I feel once great items are cheap and easily available optimal builds will be used quite a bit, I know this was the case in d2 also but it took quite a while to get max gear, and you could never have every skill maxed making players even with similar builds slightly different, but in d2 anyone can jus change their build at any time. And I don't think the valor system is enough to encourage people to stick with a build since once its gone your free to switch without penalty.
Gold sinks, we know gold was worthless in d2, but are we on that same track here? With very very few gold sinks d3 is going to have crazy innflation problems I think. One idea I like for a gold sink is a decent gold cost to switch skills out once you hit lvl 60 and have unlocked everything.
One of my biggest drawbacks from d3 is the lvl progression, it just feels kinda pointless. I mean I know you unlock skills and runes as you go but when I lvled up in d2 I felt like I became more powerful in a way that suited my playstyle by picking my own attributes and skill points.
Don't get me wrong I'm loving d3 so far and have put in probably like 80 hrs allready and just starting a2 inferno. I just can't see the game the way they have it set up currenty lasting nearly as long as d2. Maybe the pvp will help but being non-competitive I don't see it adding too opfmuch longevity to the game. Hopefully they add some interesting thinks in patches and especially expansions, but if the 1st exp is 2 yrs away I'm not sure how much of a fan base will still be too interested at that point.
Let me know what ya'll think
