    The Diablo 3 Podcast #179: Mini-Seasons and the Stash Crisis
    Botting is ruining D3, mini-seasons with odd rules would be fun, should Item Sets grant bonuses for fewer items equipped, the lack of variety in Legendary Rings, and and WTF no more stash space yet? Featuring Mjinspace and Flux.​

    The Diablo 3 Podcast #179: Mini-Seasons and the Stash Crisis

    • 0:30 -- Father's Day / Flux's B-day intro random comments, and the lack of Season length Goldilocks. Recent D3 play stuff and HotS vs. LoL.
    • 14:00 -- Botting in Diablo 3. Epidemic in softcore? Completely skewing the GR leaderboards?
    • 29:00 -- Why not mini-seasons in D3 with different rule sets? No-sets season for 2 weeks, etc. Variety for people who want it?
    • 36:00 -- Fewer items required for item set bonuses. Max bonuses from 4 or 5 pieces instead of 6. More gear options vs. massive power creep?
    • 42:00 -- Item scarcity = item power? Six piece sets were designed to be hard to find with big rewards, but have become the opposite.
    • 49:00 -- The lack of variety in Legendary Rings because Focus/Restraint is OP?
    • 57:00 --- Why is Gambling either 50% or .001% success rate? RNG clusters? Jaydalaed!
    • 1:04:00 -- New stuff coming "soon"? Favorite and least fave tile sets in Rifts. Does anyone really want a full Act 6, or just new class/items/tilesets for Rifts?
    • 1:19:00 -- Which Diablo character has the worst Father's Day? Has to be Leah.
    • 1:22:00 -- Single Player needs love! Is multiplayer too incentivized by bonuses in Diablo 3?

    I would be very much in favor of set bonuses to be 4, but only if only one set could be used at a time (at least the bonuses ). I think that would trulyy help build diversity and innovation.
