    The devs could/should be faster with patches and they've been too cautious with itemization changes (probably since they're saving all the big changes for D3X) but isn't that how every game goes? People who play a ton and know what they're doing will always churn through the content and want more.

    D3's end game problem (other than itemization) is that PvP is crappy so no one really cares to devote themselves to it, plus the specialization and time/expense of building one char to really high quality in D3 dissuades players from doing so with other classes, which means much less variety in play. I never felt like I had a main and alts in D2, but that's very much how it feels in D3 since so much time/care has to go into one char to get them powerful.

    I don't see random maps as a factor, since 1) D3 has much more map randomization than D2 did, and 2) D3's farming options are VASTLY greater than those in D2, where players routinely did 500000 runs of the same small area, purely since it was 5% better items/exp than other more varied areas. Which isn't to say that more map / dungeon randomization would be a bad thing in D3, but it wouldn't be a panacea either.
    Well said. I've played a ton, continue to play just about every day, and plan to continue. I'm still enjoying it, and looking forward to the improvements that are planned. Looking at all the changes that have been implemented strictly through game patching since the release it's pretty amazing to me that people will still post things about Blizzard not caring what people want in the game. I played D2 for a long, long time and really liked that, too. I've never seen any game that offered as much actual content change at no cost as what D3 has in it's first year.
    Eschew obfuscation!

    Thing is though, all of those changes should've been there from the get-go. The game in its current state it just about fit for release imo (ID all needs to be added ofc). It's like selling someone a car and installing the tires one year later, of course people are going to complain. Not to mention the fact that we have a Ferrari here and they've installed truck tires.

    it's still #11 on xfire, so there are still lots of people playing (not me though - last time I played was when Monster Power games were made public - played for 2 hours, got bored, logged out - I'll give D3 another try after the patch - currently enjoying PoE and trying out Neverwinter and the free trial of Rift)

    I had plenty of fun exploring random dungeons, vast maps, and did lots of different types of runs. Not just baal runs. Back when a boss kills drops were comensurate with its difficulty. Fast forward to Troll 3 and a stupid e pack is both harder, and has better drops then a boss. I mean...dude can I say 3 people who took charge int he games development needed a piano to drop on them back in 07 or 08.

    Shall I get the epic potato chips?

    Anyways, we already know all this now. I'm on again off again, because I can't get excited about this game if I want to. Know what though? Once my enjoyment drops too low... I play another game. I don't hang around whining about this one.

    I find it hilarious that a non ARPG is more like an ARPG than the ARPGs currently available on the market but because I'm actually serious about not liking D3 I just go play that other game. And that's why I can't take the complainers seriously, because if they were really enjoying PoE or whatever better they'd go play that instead of doing the same song and dance here.

    it's dead, OP. it died back in January when jay left the project. the lulz are not at a very high level anymore. although, travis excellent choice of words did make me chuckle when he referred to WotB as the awesome button.

Hope for change is what dragged me (and most people) for another ridiculous amount of hours.
    sure, i've seen people continue to play games either hoping it via some patch or some other kind of nonsense. in any event, i think the impact of patches on games beyond fixing technical issues are vastly overrated by many players. the funny thing is although updates and patches are easier to roll out than in the past. i still think a great game resonates with it's core audience not just early, but also frequently and over a sustained period of time regardless of patches. in short, a patch won't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse.

    4.2k hours per day on xfire is pretty good actually.
