    A little worried about PVP

    I'm thrilled that Diablo III has finally been announced, and it looks awesome, but I'm worried about PVP (specifically PKing). When you think about it, Diablo has always been about cooperative play with an added twist: PKers. In Diablo you could hostile other players who were right next to you and attack them, and in Diablo II players were again given the option of hostiling other players and attacking them without their consent. Obviously, this was something that the original Diablo team wanted; and it's something that makes Diablo, well, Diablo. And I'm worried Blizzard has done away with it in Diablo III. I guess we'll see what happens.

    I do hope they make this hostiling without consent stays out of Hardcore play. I hope they at least let people check a box, like the hardcore box, to disallow unwanted hostiling in that mode.

    highly unlikely, because it's the pvm vs. pvp balance that keeps D2 going.

    i would like to see how they are going to fight hacks, because that's what actually ruins the game (d2) most right now.

    Well chubz, even the engine looks not very conducive to PvP. Not fast enough. However, all this can change before release.

    I have no problem with Diablo III being PVE-oriented; after all, isn't Diablo supposed to be PVE-oriented? I just hope they don't limit our options by removing the hostility feature. It just wouldn't be Diablo without it.

    I doubt there even will be Hardcore mode available. It's really not for today's playerbase. And there is no doubt in my mind that there will be no options for TPPK and such since it's going to be pay-to-play monthly game

    If there's no Hardcore mode, then I won't be getting the game.

    And I was afraid this would happen.

    ...who says it's going to be pay-to-play? I'm quite sure it's over Bnet...

    Why are people jumping to conclusions before they have even announced anything. **** just be happy the game is in the pipeline and will be coming out.

    Re: A little worried about PVP

    I for one certainly hope there's going to be PVP in the game and for peopel to be able to go hostile against unsuspecting victims and I really hope they'll keep hardcore an option.
    Nothing quite as exciting as hunting people in hardcore.

    Of course fairness is always a concern and people unwilling to fight would have to have good chances of escaping, which I think they do as it works in d2 today. It's bug exploiting, hacks and cheating that is the problem.

    Re: A little worried about PVP

    To clarify, when I say PKing I mean legitimate PKing (yes, there used to be such a thing). You know, hostiling a party and chasing after them (this was easier when there wasn't a WP delay after you hostiled another player).

    I hope they keep that kind of thing in Diablo III, as well as a Hardcore mode.

    Thanks for the link.

    I was certain there was going to be PVP, but PKing? (*HOSTILE* "TAKE WP TO CANYON OF THE MAGI* And kill two people at once with Blizzard.) I have a feeling there won't be anything like that in Diablo III, unfortunately.

    Re: A little worried about PVP

    If they keep that in place, please set limits. A level 93 pala going after a bunch of leveling 30+ characters is ruining Hardcore for so many people. It is ludicrous. The same goes for the killing by traps placed at waypoints, eugh. I'd rather lose those players in the next game, it will allow more people to play the game with more satisfaction. Blizzard, with their eyes on getting more players to play their game will probably think along those lines as well.

    Re: A little worried about PVP

    As a Hardcore player, I don't have a problem with any of that.

    I have a problem with TPPK, maphack, bots, dupes, et cetera, though.

    I've got a feeling I won't be missing players with your thoughts on fair play in the next installment of the game :thumbup:

    Re: A little worried about PVP

    My thoughts? Whatever that means. I have to deal with high-level characters messing with my low-level characters, and trapped TPs/WPs as much as anyone. I just don't whine about it. I actually think it's fun. I guess I don't take the game as seriously as you do. :thumbup: In any case, don't get your hopes up. There still may be "unfair" PKing in Diablo III.

    Re: A little worried about PVP

    No, but I had to adapt to playing it solo, or with known people to make sure it didn't happen.

    To me one of the joys of a game like this is meeting new people and having fun for a while whenever and however you want. I think I'm not in a minority with this view.
