Diablo III previews the armor, powers, and rift improvements of patch 2.2

    
43
She's still got heels on, because of course she does. And the other armor set is barely scraps covering a woman's nether regions, because of course it is.

Diablo III‘s next major patch is a quality-of-life patch, meaning that it’s not going to come with a huge influx of new content. If you’re tired of seeing the exact same rift layouts every single time you jump into a rift, though, it’s a very good thing. The patch will include new tilesets and new layouts both, so you’ll be finding something new to explore instead of familiar and worn-out places.

And what awaits you for exploring? New armor, for one. Three new endgame armor sets are being added to the game with the patch, along with 15 new Legendary powers. You’ll also have new bounties, new goblins to chase, and a new cosmetics window for all the pretty toys that don’t affect gameplay. Along with the usual variety of bugfixes, it’s not going to be a patch replete with new content, but it should make playing through familiar content more enjoyable.

boredinBC (aka Daniel James Clarke) fair enough you may not like it and i do not have any issue with it.
I could’ve an issue with such a comment when an individual would state “any one still plays this abomination of diablo franchise?” and left the comment like that.
Yes i could think about it as a trollish attempt but i lead the post further while explaining why do i think in such way, thus i do not see an issue there.

i am not questioning any choices and preferences, if you feel that way, then it might be your problem, not mine.
it is your choice i have nothing against that, about playing the game, never had and never will. Again you’re taking this too personal while trying to defend your stance and this is what i don’t understand.

I never said i hate the game, overinterpretation, i said i dislike the design choice of developers that made the game

First post is a gripe, yes, against the overall direction of the game, IMO it is relevant towards 2.2 also, because that version of the game does not touch any core issues of design choices and only gives some band aid help, so that people can play it for a bit longer.
“Yes people are playing this abomination of a game” and that my friend would be enough to start the conversation on another level…

SkyyDragonn so basically you’re saying your way is the only way to enjoy it?

carson63000 you’re seriously bad with connecting the dots if your conclusions lead you towards this:
“You might think that you have put across some argument beyond “I didn’t like the game therefore no veteran gamer could like it”, but if that was your intention, you haven’t really succeeded.”

sorry man but that is just your imagination…

if you’re not aware thet my comment is stating enough that, it is My opinion and what I would prefer then seriously news flash all comments are by the deafult an opinion of an author until some presents facts and then interprete them as such…

“leave out all of the attempts at fostering some sort of generational divide between older gamers” sorry man, but again if you’re unaware of different views between younger and older people that might be your problem…

Generational divide is a fact, always has been, not only in gaming,thus telling about preferences can only lead toward better conclusions within gaming and other communities…

Zeneren (mateuszpachnik) carson63000 Look, I am going to say it again.   I have no problem with your opinion of the game or the criticisms that you are levelling against it.  I disagree with some of it, and agree with other parts of it.
What I don’t like is the way you opened what would have otherwise been just a criticism of the game with the troll “anyone still plays this” intro.   I see that line used all the time on this site and others, feel free to browse articles on ESO or Wildstar and you will see they invariable have a host of comments from people who are questioning the choices of people who are playing these games.  You may not see it that way, but some of us do.  
The post itself, though more defensible than the opening, has nothing to do with the article.  The article was about patch 2.2 and your comment was pretty much just a gripe about the state of the game when you last played it. There was nothing that was relevant to 2.2 in your comment.  No mention of the current season, the new goblins, armour types, nothing.  You saw an article on D3 and decided that this was as good of a place as any to let everyone know that you hate it.  
My initial comment was barely even a jab at yours, mostly I just answered your question.  Yes people are playing this abomination of a game.

Zeneren (mateuszpachnik) carson63000 I did connect some dots from “this abomination of diablo franchise” to “New generation of gamers does not have to have an idea what the older gen. of players think” to “I do know that times when nerds were creating games for nerds are over and mass appeal is the new way for all”.
You might think that you have put across some argument beyond “I didn’t like the game therefore no veteran gamer could like it”, but if that was your intention, you haven’t really succeeded.
You should probably make it a LOT clearer that “YOUR opinion about the design choices and what YOU would
prefer” are indeed just personal opinions, and leave out all of the attempts at fostering some sort of generational divide between older gamers (from the times when nerds were creating games for nerds) and newer gamers (from this modern age where mass appeal is the new way for all).

It’s not something I play all of the time but I do play it from time to time. I do think the feeling of combat in D3 is the best in the business so I enjoy playing it in small spurts to satisfy that god like feeling in combat.

seriously i stated my opinion about the design choices and what i would
prefer and all i can see is attack on my stance as a person that bought
the game and is dissatisfied, a person that likes older, meaning 90’s
vision of game mechanics with some 2015 quality of life improvements is
simply nearly “crossed” by you, for stating what can be felt by
some gamers…
you might be older but your conclusions are
stretched too far and instead of asking you’re accusing and based on
that it does not sound wise

“you think that just because you didn’t like a game, that no veteran gamer could like it”
hold
your horses man i never said that and if you think i did it is just
your imagination because that way of thinking would be very unwise IMO
also

i never said that D2 was better then D1 i also prefer D1, been gaming
from 1989 so i’ve some perspective also on what i enjoy or not.

http://www.livefyre.com/profile/72356349/
and all of the sudden i am an elitist for saying out laud that i do not
agree with the vision of the game that was presented differently then
delivered 
and man seriously you should stop with your
conclusions because they sound like all generic responses from the net
all around 
“Now we have to contend with gamers who misguidedly
believe that only the games that they enjoy are worth playing.” i never
said that, now you just put some not wise stuff in my mouth and that is not
fair i also never said that everyone needs to like what i like

“It’s easy to see these kinds of posts from a mile
away.  They are
usually unrelated to the topic in question and serve only to soapbox the
posters views about a game they didn’t enjoy.” it was a topic for a
newest patch for the game i bought and played, it did not delivered for me
based on the franchise history, cutting most RPG elements from the game was also a wrong way IMO
now you will tell me that i should not take any stance because of
reasons? lol simply

carson63000 Zeneren (mateuszpachnik) boredinBC (aka Daniel James Clarke) Exactly.  It’s this elitist attitude that people carry around with them like a badge of honor.  Back in the day we only had to deal with non-gamers throwing it around, judging people for “wasting their lives” playing games.  Now we have to contend with gamers who misguidedly believe that only the games that they enjoy are worth playing.

It’s easy to see these kinds of posts from a mile away.  They are usually unrelated to the topic in question and serve only to soapbox the posters views about a game they didn’t enjoy.

carson63000 Zeneren (mateuszpachnik) boredinBC (aka Daniel James Clarke) I’m with you here carson. I am pushing close to 50 and have been playing the series from the start even back in original Diablo beta. What really gets me is all these folks stating stuff like this and taking about how great D2 was. It was nothing but cookie cutter builds that were optimized to grind. I still think Diablo was the best of the bunch and what I love to see that remastered into today’s graphics.

With that said, I can only take so much of D3 but that’s just me and my age. I been gaming since ore-internet before the WWW when we dialed into BBS. It’s safe to say I am burnt out on all of it and I don’t come close to grinding out like I used to. All and all though, D3 is still a quality game.
