Its needed to play the game!
Dear devs, you play the game yourselves.
You know how Diablo/Baal runs work.
You know how trading works.
You know how “Wait, I’ll get my lvl 91 sorc.” works.
You know why people open games and call them “lvl plz” and how much fun it is to go in with a lvl 80+ summoner necro and blast through normal + helping someone in the process.
Just give us the full game on console.
If it takes a few months more to do it right, if it means a postponed release or implementation post release, so be it.
