Yep, D4 looks like D3 2.0 to me as well.
I wouldn’t mind playing D3 if it wasn’t stupid easy due to the excessive power creep. The item drop rate is just too high, the progression from reaching 70 to being able to easily farm T16 is too fast. I actually played and enjoyed Diablo 3 a lot more back pre-RoS/Loot 2.0 when items were scarce, I didn’t even think twice about Diablo 2 during that time.
After the power creep started in Diablo 3 and the game kept getting easier every season with the release of more powerful sets and items, I eventually came back to Diablo 2 for the challenge and to get away from the overload of item drops. Everything was fine until Diablo 2 online gameplay started going down the tubes. I’ve tried playing on the US-West Ladder server, but the lag is horrid.
Several of my friends stopped playing Diablo 3 because of the power creep stupidity.
I just hope what is going on isn’t some internal secret agenda to kill off Diablo 2.
