The Diablo 3 Podcast #195: 2015 Year in Review Pt2
0:30 — Intro from sore throated Flux and show agenda. 2:00 — End of Season 4. Why a 2 week break this time? Plans for Season 5 starting in mid-January. 10:00 — Excite for Legacy of Nightmares set rings. Balanced and rebalanced on the PTR… too nerfed now for top end gear option? 13:00 — Diablo 3 New Year’s Resolutions… 14:30 — Season Achievement… too hard to finish (GR 60 solo) in S4? Very few Hardcore made it, and very unequal between classes.
27:30 — Year in Review 2015: July. Kanai’s Cube debuted, T7-T10, season 4 power creep. 31: 00 — Free item set from Season Journey. Should that be the best set? 40:30 — August 2015 in review. Countdown to disappointment of Blizzcon begins. Seasons varying so much in length. Will Blizzard ever standardize them? 47:00 — September 2015 in review. More Blizzcon D3X2 hopes and delusions. 49:30 — October 2015 in review. Botting, botting, botting. 53:00 — November 2015. No Blizzcon news items with top views. Complete lack of D3 news from the show. Set Dungeons non-permanent death for HC illustrates the eternal truth. 55:00 — December 2015 review. How Blizzard turned Titan’s failure into Overwatch’s success. Could show development changes to improve future Bliz games at launch?
1:10:00 — Final thoughts and hopes for more viable end game play types.
