Diablo 3 Podcast #189: Botting and Blizzcon ’15 Dismay 0:50 — Recent play stories and Season 4 anecdotes. Nerdwards still Wizarding, Muggs with 4 Monks and pushing P1000. 4:40 — Class imbalance in S4. Best party = 3 Monks + 1 Barb. No need for class equality? 9:00 — Party play required for any chance at competitive experience gain. 150 billion in 4p vs. 3 billion solo. Why such a broken system? Paragon system creates an inevitable EXP focus? 20:00 — Massive lag bugs this season. Game-breaking for Hardcore? 24:00 — Flux explains his hiatus (real life massive work) and reflects how every bug and issue from PTR 2 months ago is now dominating the Season. 27:00 — Class variety in S4. Where are the Crusaders, Wizards, and Demon Hunters? 40:00 — Party co-op pushing players into pre-set roles. More fun for MP or limiting in roles? 45:00 — Botting ruining D3. The fansite open letter to Blizzard will earn a response? Why does Blizzard host admitted botters on “Play Your Way” and promote botting streamers? 57:10 — Blizzcon 2015 and Diablo 3’s phone booth display + 1 panel. Slaughtered Hopes Inn? 1:03:00 — Strategy simplified by watching streamers do OP things. Cookie Cutterism rules. 1:13:00 — Plans for the rest of the season. N3rdwards joining the Monk bandwagon? Flux sees no reason to try and jump back in now.
