I am a huge blizzard fan. (3.5 years of wow in a top 100 U.S. guild) I played D2 back in the day and was ranked on the ladder for my barbarian. So needless to say I am rather excited about Diablo 3's release. However, there are a few concerns I have thus far. 1.) Real life money auction house. This could either be absolutely terrible, or great. I spent a ridiculous amount of time farming SOJ's and Bul' kathos rings in D2 and probably could have made a few thousand dollars off of them (had 2 for every character.) The downside to this is that the rich kids are going to walk around with amazing equipment going, "lol, look at what I has." I didn't buy my tier 6 in wow, it was earned and I think that is how it should be. 2.) Always on connection even for single player. I'm sure Blizzard is doing this to stop dupes and hacks of the game. This sucks for the people that want to play the single player game that don't have internet. I know that by this day and age everyone is supposed to have internet access, but I live in Tennessee and I know a handful of people that are hardcore pc gamers that live in a location where the only option is dial-up, or satellite. 3.) No mods. Without UI mods for wow I would have never have gotten as far as I did. Maybe Blizzard will make the UI good enough to where they aren't needed, but that is yet to be seen. 9 out of 10 hardcore mmo players have a heavily modded UI. Thoughts? Comments?
