    "Inferno is not designed to be beatable by HC character" - Jay Wilson

    Quite interesting tweet if you ask me

    https://twitter.com/#!/Angryrobotics/status/196234226159460352

    Basically..according to this .. beating Inferno by HC character is difficulty level: Asian .. So..what you do you think? It seems they are trying really hard to tell us that Inferno is really "THAT" hard.. if not even harder :)

    I've been saying this for a while. SC cannot be truly hard and still have Hel or Inferno-HC still be reasonably doable. Sorry, Apoc. :smug:

    as not a big fan of HC i will call it good news - probably inferno will be really hard. i wouldnt say undoable but probably you will need the best items from hell to be comfortable to farm some early part of inferno. the real problem is how long is rebuilding new character to lvl 60... if its really fast then people will try and try and try and be finally succesful sooner or later.
    could be pure hype but still...

    Not a negative to me, I see it as something to look forward to when you've done everything else.

    I doubt he means that seriously, because if inferno isn´t designed to be beatable by a HC character, then what´s the point of playing it in the first place? It doesn´t make sense.

    Point of HC character was always to see how far you can get..

    yes sure, but you would still like to reach your goal, which would be to complete the game, wouldn´t you?

    Difference between "designed for" and "possible".

    The information to take away from the statement is that they are designing inferno around non-hardcore play..meaning..you WILL DIE MANY TIMES. They want you to die, thats the design. That doesn't mean you cannot do it on HC without dying..it just means it will be hard as hell and a great challenge.

    I would never personally play HC. It just seems like a stupid thing to have one death cancel out hours of work, but I guess for those with lots of time to make new characters it isnt a big deal.

    I really like this news, and really hope Inferno is as hard as they are claiming it to be.

    There will be build combinations and somehow it will be possible. Just very tough.

    Edit : "Build combinations" as of between 4 chars.

    I fear a lot of people would rather want to play SC now in stead of HC, if inferno is so difficult, that you will probably never complete inferno. However, like you said lets prove them wrong :)

    Hmm I never played HC in D2 but I'm tempted now. Finally a true challenge! Think of the prestige that the first to beat Inferno on HC will get... It will be like climbing Mount Everest (well, not quite but still big in video game terms :p).

    I only hope they won't water down Inferno if people start to QQ... Probably not since the longevity of the game depends on it being insanely hard (for now at least, maybe they'll add endgame content later).

    Re: "Inferno is not designed to be beatable by HC character" - Jay Wilson

    I know the differences between the two, but the English semantics just bothered me: if inferno is possible to beat by a HC character, then it´s in my mind also designed to be that exactly that, because if it wasn´t designed that way, then it would logically not be possible to beat the game. So I thought they changed the design alltogether.

    It is however reasonible to believe, that Blizzard isn´t interested in making a game, which isn´t beatable on HC, how small the number of HC players must be thus it´s not possible not to be able to beat inferno or not designed to be beatable by a HC character...whatever you prefer hehe
