    DIII . Why not RTS ?

    we have massive/intensive discussion about D3 being MMORPG.

    Being like WOW or not,
    Being like HellGate or not,
    Being like Halo or not,
    Being like D2 itself or not,
    Being like a little of all the above..

    Why not go RTS. lol.

    Well, ok lets see what blizzards main Franchises did,
    StarCraft. RTS
    WarCraft. RTS
    Diablo. RPG
    World of Warcraft.RPG

    Well. All of their games are very sucessful. So why not implement both RPG - RTS together. Something Like Shattered Galaxy. hmm.

    Doesnt sound like a good idea? hmm.. maybe. maybe not.
    lets hear it.

    RTS is the most overdone genre on PCs. Problem is, a lot of them are too much alike, so it's almost like if you've played one, you've played them all.

    hmm. isn't that the very same thing with RPG games and even FPS games.. in fact every genre.? hmm.

    well. Hmm i don't think they are much alike apart from massing armies/or do some cunning stuffs to eliminate your opponents. Well if you are comparing SC with WC3 with FT with SC2, i think they would of coz be pretty much the same in UserInterface and such since they came from Blizzard... Likewise if you are to compare the C&C + Redalert series, they would be pretty much the same game type.

    But if you are comparing to Command and Conquer Vs FrozenThrone. Then i think they are pretty much different. Well If you would to compare to Shattered Galaxy, den that is even more different with the rest of the RTS games.

    Well.. yea. hmm..

    Diablo RTS??? Don't play with "serious" issues... Diablo is an adventure RPG and this is the very essence of the game. One of the most particular game aspects is it's randomness which brings us the possibility to "farm" the hypothetical perfect gear to face all alone the evils of hell having "surprises" pretty much every time you play. The very soul of the Diablo series is the evolution of your characters and the "collection" of items... turning it into a RTS would just be creating a new gameplay, or maybe a new game from bottom to top. And yes, I know that the same was done in the Warcraft series, beggining with a "RTS"(?) and transforming it ultimatly into a RPG, or better, into a MMORPG. But this is not what I really want to see in my favorite series, whatsoever. For me Diablo is what it is, a RPG where I pick up a sword and use my Fanaticism aura to kill hordes of monsters and boost my friends powers, so I can "treasure hunt" and become stronger and stronger...

    Hmm.. Actually, a Diablo RTS doesn't sound too bad. But it would be like WarCraft with a Diablo mod put in the directory files.

    So, just release an RPG and everyone that left Diablo will come back. I don't think the RTS Diablo would do very good in the franchise.

    While we're at it, lets create a Diablo spin off called "Diablo Fantasy Tactics" or some such title.

    Same engine and concept of Final Fantasy Tactics, all Diablo based.


    -Sorry, but I could not resist tossing that in for some odd reason.....

    Nah man. It wouldn't make any sense to the story-line. It would be cheesy for sure.

    Thank the great Archeangel Tyreal and all the other saints that Diablo is a RPG and hopefully will keep like that.

    Re: DIII . Why not RTS ?

    i have thought about this before you even put this tread up. how about there willl be five civs? one for each act, none of the heroes. for each you can could 3 "heroes" but after you cant choose the others. the heroes could have different skins depending on level and "path" you choose.
    Heroes:
    ACT 1:
    Griswold: redemption,demonic,earthbonded
    Andariel: spider,scorpion,serpent
    Blood Raven:redemption,demonic,undecided
    ACT 2:
    Radament:redemption, Pharaoh,demonic
    Summoner:undecided so far
    Duriel:undecided
    ACT 3:
    Council member:redemption,demonic,elemental
    Zarkarum Blade: same as cm
    Mephisto: undecided
    ACT 4:
    Izual: redemption,demonic,UD
    hephasto: same as izual
    diablo:ud
    Act 5:
    just all were UD
    Baal,nihlathak,shenk

    each would have different skins as they could their path, and each would have personal unique guards.
