K, couple of things here:
1) The people who went into games when others were leveling would only go into those games 'cause they could only kill low levels (because they were probably raped by characters of similar levels so that was the only way they could feel better). They were lame and needed a life. Shouldn't admit to things like that.
2) There hasn't been anything on PvP released yet (I beleive) and I think it's because their main focus for this game is the PvM part (the storyline, quests and co-op play). People would buy the game if it had better PvM. D2 wasn't like that because the quests and PvM were pretty easy once you get good items. I, for one, hope that the quests will keep us busy for a loooong time
I actually had a very good Auradin who almost never died in PvP. I raped ALL characters with that char(excluding smiters). I just loved going into those games and seeing 7 noobs die to my auras, then having them bring their lvl 89 hdin who then got raped and I took their money to ressurect my merc and either stayed in town to piss em off while I ate dinner, or just left.
That's how I had fun playing the game. There's not much to do after you got a very good char with the best available items. I wasn't much of a MFer, runner, just PvP and it got lame sometimes in pubs cause it was littered with hacks. I went on for private duels, or if I was bored that day I'd come on for a bit and own noobs in chaos sanctuary.
oh BTW I never stacked unless I died by a hacker with TMC or far cast or that BS. anyways, if this game loses any of the D2 pvp elements, I'll still buy it cause cmon it's a Diablo game, but probably won't be investing as much time as I did for D2 on it. Hopefully this game comes out in less than a year. I'd like to play it for this winter, but it's not possible.
I think we should get like all the diablo fans out there, get everybody to pay like 5 bucks so blizz can hire another 50 members to speed up the development of the game. man o man, some ppl go all out and put in like $50. yeah im dreaming.
