This game is far better than diablo 3. It stays true to the theme of diablo 2 but with better mechanics. If only it had the pk element of diablo 1 it would be a truly brutal game. I know a game is good when it stops me playing sc2 for more than a week.
You gotta play it on hardcore though.
Supposedly the open beta patch is going to be massive too with a ton of fixes/changes and the third act.
I think the game has already come along way and is pretty smooth experience so the open beta onwards- will be pretty sick. It sucks to lose all my stash though. If only for this level 1 sword and low level amulet which made leveling a new character pretty rapid.
I'm really curious about what kind of micro transactions will be available. The 5 stash pages seem to be sufficient so don't really see much point buying more of that. Still have all my points.
I think they should make f2p limited to one character. The devs really do deserve a decent slice of $ considering how much d3 rakes in and how terrible it was. THis game is the true diablo 3 imo
