    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.


    Update: We'll record an emergency podcast about the new Patch 2.3 preview tonight and post it early Wednesday morning. So listen to this one now and expect another shortly.

    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?

    Loved the discussion as always, but I found myself yelling at my iDevice when you guys were talking about how "polished" D3 is. Have you looked at the UI lately? It's awful, and bugged as all hell.

    It's an amazing game that keeps me glued to my PC - couldn't-be-tighter-gameplay, rock stable (can't remember the last crash on my 8.1 machine, *which is not even officially supported*), but polished? Nah.

    You should make that a topic in a future podcast :) I'll even participate: my fees are very reasonable and I have a charming foreign accent.
