    Is there going to be a Singleplayer mode?

    As a member of the thriving SPF community, it would greatly disappoint me if we didn't have the option to play offline.

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    Will the gameworld be separated into different acts like we saw in D2 or will it be one really big one?

    1) Which classes will be available? or Races?

    2) If there is a story mode, will there be the possibility of co-operative gameplay? How many players?

    3) And if so, will be possible to play via LAN?

    4) Will Diablo 3 have difficulty levels, like in Diablo 2 or after a certain periods playing the game, the difficulty will increase itself, so you wouldn't HAVE to play the game more then once to reach lvl 99?

    5) How about customizable characters? Face, gender, height, weight, etc.

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    1) Will it have HARDCORE mode, and if so, will people be able to choose it right away without wasting time and spoiling first-time experience in softcore mode.
    2) Will item hunting mechanism remain similar to D2 (MF and fast boss runs).
    3) Will Blizzard try to prevent powerleveling in a sence that people get carried by higher levels as opposed to trying to rush through content underlevel, which would be a challenge in its own? (nothing like seeing a bunch of level 10s trying to zerg Andariel and dying from poison clouds. ROFL oh good memories)
    4) Will the game remain VERY skill dependant, meaning no support classes/builds (no healing of others, no immunities ****ty bubbles)?
    5) Will there be encounters that even top geared players will fear (Hell ancients, extra strong fire enchanted, multishot lightning enchanted before nerfs)?

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    Some questions that I have:

    - What motivated you to return to the Diablo property and are you interested in revamping the series or evolving in the same manner as Starcraft II?

    - What elements of the Diablo series are in your opinion most responsible for its success and how will you deal with these futures in this new iteration?

    Couple more Q's.

    1.) Will there be an online fee to play Diablo, or will it continue it's heritage of using the free battle.net system?

    2.) Will the game have more of a gothic feel like Diablo 1, or a more broadened spectrum such as Diablo 2?

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    Hi again!

    The #1 Question I think we all want to know is D3 going to be an MMO?

    If so are they going to charge or have it on Bnet? Cause I remember way back to diablo 1 days when Blizzard said they'd never charge people for any games played on Battlenet.

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    *Will hardcore play mode be an option from the start?

    *Any New ways to detect dupes, hacks, and bots? Dedicated servers?

    *Will we still have to log in within 90 days or we lose our beloved hardcore characters?

    *will it be a paid supsciption? If so, any discounts for having a WoW account-- maybe $20 for both world of warcraft and World of diablo (if this is a MMO)

    *Camera. will camera will able to zoom like warcraft?

    are the genuinely scary monsters of d1 going to make a return?

    is the game going to be mod friendly?

    will PvP balance be a major component of the initial release?

    1. ) To what extent will the levels be randomly generated ?
    2. ) How will single- & multiplayer be balanced (if at all) ?
    3. ) Will it be viewed isometric ?
    4. ) What does the gem do ?

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    I would like to know if Blizzard will avoid the classic MMO element of forced grouping to beat encounters in Diablo 3. Will group play be a true option rather than a practical requirement? Will a solo player be able to defeat every encounter, area and boss in D3 if properly built and geared?

    Question: Will the game be set into acts or will it be more of an immersive, seemless world?

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    First off, thi ssite needs to upgrade and turn off the freakin adclick bs, takes 2 minutes to load a page.

    Okay now on to Diablo 3.

    I myself doubt it will be announced this weekend. What are they going to save for Blizzcon2008? They need to announce it at home in sunny SoCal.

    IF, they have decided to go forward I would ask this. ( Assuming it is somewhat in line with D2)

    As mentioned already in this thread once, "DO NOT BOTHER IF YOU CAN'T STOP THE DUPES". I don't mind the botting as long as it conforms to game making limits so not to clog the servers. At least the items found are real.

    Please fix the g-rush and level bugs. I mean holy crap 1-85 in 2 hours? Might as well make it all open.

    Assuming you fix the dupe issue and Rune words remain part of the game how about making it a little easier to find runes needed. Or, make them attainable via quests.

    How about beefing up the servers to add clan wars. Say 16 players and add a realm where anyone can go to pvp and remove the hostile from normal games. Nothing worse then an e-rager in hcl.

    Lets hope it is released by 2011.

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    1. Will this be the same hack/slash game or a mix of a MMORPG Element feel that WoW and so many MMORPG's has.
    2. If it has a MMORPG Feel, will Diablo 3 try to go further and beyond of what the MMORPGs are offering to date?
    3. Who are the villan(s) in this new title and could you give us a brief summary if related to the lore.
    4. Will Hardcore players be much more distinguished from softcore instead of just the red in there names in chat?
    5. Will we be able to revisit the old towns in Diablo 3 and be able to venture back into the portal to tristam?
    6. Will there be a cow level?
    7. If its Pay to play, will people who play World of Warcraft have a discount if they also decide to pay for WoW and D3 at the same time?
    8. Will Diablo 3 Be updated constantly to the point where dupers,hackers, and scammers will no longer exist?
    9. Will we be able to choose sides, the light or darkness for example; and how will pvp work so that its balanced and people don't die instantly by frozen orb or meteor.
    10. When do you expect the game will be out?

    Re: Diablo 3 Questions for Blizzard

    Hard to ask specific questions with no good information on the game, even what genre it will be.
    I ask this question to reserve a spot to edit for future inquiries:
    Will the economy be item driven, as in D2. If so, what measures will you take to prevent dupes and the like? I will take my answer offline.
    Thank you.
