Alot of Diablo fans has serious doubts (including myself) about the game and after the abomination of D3 we have every right to be. I really dont give about a rat's ass about how scary a monster may look or sound. As long the game has depth, good game play and mechanics I will be happy. I've been playing games with outdated or low requirement graphics (ie Terraria, Stardew Valley and D2) and been having tons of fun. This last update kind of tells me they haven't came up with anything new worthy of discussing or worst case scenario they still have no clue where they are going with the game.

I bet the game will look good, run good but will be shallow, void of meaningful choices and fall short of any real challenge (build and mechanic wise). It will be watered down to cater to the masses and end up with a couple of cookiecutter builds for each class, easily and quickly obtainable bis gear and most importantly no end game to speak of (when compared to PoE for example).
But more importantly, it will be diverse and inclusive!

Edit: Honestly, D4 will have a tremendous following on release, there is no need for it be like PoE, they both appeal to different sets of players. I would like D4 to be closer to what Lost Ark offers, but I can't see Blizzard being able to pull that off for D4. I'll be playing it when its finally released years from now, if it does get released, lol.

D3s gameplay is still some of the best out there in terms of ARPGs. The big issue D3 had/has is a relative lack of depth. It's super easy to "gear out" a toon and there's relatively little use in rolling "alts". Basically, each class has one meta build each season and that's it. You don't have near the build diversity of a game like PoE.

Gameplay and systems wise though, D3 is still great. The game *feels* good to play, abilities, animations, etc. Plus, I think Rifts are a much better "endgame" mechanic than mapping is.

Pretty good troll.

D3 plays great now. It was a pile of shit at release. Best controller friendly arpg ever. Like stated above though it doesn’t have the staying power of other arpgs, it’s too shallow, you just grind and farm towards a few different builds and that’s it.

I botted it 24/7 for a few months. Even ran a 2 bot party for a while.

D3 is far better as an autoclicker.

Moment to moment Gameplay in D3 was always fine, but their itemisation, map generator, game modes, character building and progression systems are both shit and shallow. I don't expect D4 to be any different. Fun for a week but that's it.

that's how i played it too (after playing it normally a lot)

More fun to optimize your bot and wake up to ID your loot for the night and see how far in greater rift the bot got.

The most entertaining thing for me was seeing my bots beat normal players in game.
