This is kind of why even though I want changes, minus personal-loot (sorta, don’t really care anymore tbh) and some unreasonable ones, I have not joined the push.
Part of that has to do with the fact that both sides have toxic people, but I don’t appreciate being labeled, and the people wanting change putting the game down (can’t be successful without changes), and just all the back and forth in general. But most importantly I can respect what it the game is and I’m keeping my expectations in check. It’s hard because I understand both sides. Yes, it’s an opportunity for improvement, but it’s also just one game and a lot of people want the same experience. If this were D4 the conversation wouldn’t be going this way.
Again, want changes, I want an expansion, however, I’m not going to blame people on the forums if that doesn’t happen. And real quick just to further my point… I don’t even like the hostile function, but I know it’s important to a lot of people and it’s part of D2, so I wouldn’t want to see it changed. In another game? Sure…I doubt D4 will have the hostile function similar to D2.
What I hope to see happen is people get their D2 experience, then, after 6 months, a year, we (mostly) come together and push for more content while keeping existing systems intact. Just my two cents.
