rant: D3 becoming more D2 everyday. I'm sure at some point I read some blue print saying that they weren't going to have socketing and then suddenly its like 'ooops we're running out of time and gotten nowhere so lets just take the guts out of D2 and give it a fancy upgrade then we'll call it an artisian system'. Does anyone else feel the same way? I'm happy they didn't throw away a perfectly good system but all the secrecy and vagueness about these other systems they talk about skillrunes and talisman just seems stupid, as if they won't get old fast. I call - LAME! Someone at Blizzard must have woken up in a cold sweat one morning and realised what a complete and utter mess they were in, held an emergency meeting and everyone agreed to reinvent the wheel or something. Bet we will never hear of the talisman again. I wonder if they will give us back user placed attributes. Oh my! :unimpressed: We are actually in the same position when they were announcing D2 and they were saying that formula's could be found scattered around the world, anyone remember that? Now they're doing it again to us. I remember they once said that all monsters in D2 would wield different weapons and they all ended up with the same weapons. I'm am happy with the appearance of the monsters and gore. Apart from that its as clear as day that blizzard = cartoon graphics, so for us whom don't still dig "toonz" and probably haven't for decades we'll just have to grin and bear it like adults do. Damn, damn, damn.
