Back when I was playing I wouldn't run into a lag fest but it was annoying running in the 200-300ms most the time.

HoeBag - Community - Diablo III

I still find the game fun until something better comes out (which should be soon).

The funny thing is that I could count on one good drop per week when my DPS was lower and my defense was lower.

I kill 50% faster now, yet I can't get a good drop per month.

Introducing the Paragon System - Diablo III

Wow!!! Didn't see that coming in patch 1.04. If I'm reading this right, it looks like they've just added another 100 lvls worth of stat + MF upgrades after lvl 60.

Not sure if it`s enough to save the game, but it goes a long way towards satisfying one of the main end-game issues of there not being any real reason to play beyond lvl 60. Now at least a person can see some kind of progress even if the item drops are still absolutely crap.

IMO, the lack of DII`s lvl 99 grind (very few folks actually made it up to that level during a ladder session) was something that was visibly lacking in DIII`s endgame.

That patch could potentially bring me and my fiancee back, even just periodically. They just need to fix the useless stats on class specific items.

This really is a huge change to the endgame that wasn't even hinted at. Maintenance is scheduled for 8 hrs tomorrow so it might even be live by tomorrow evening.

Agree 100%. I'll at least give it another shot. The changes are positive enough to warrant that little at least.

The twitter reply on the 17th was this: https://twitter.com/Bashiok/statuses/236548193020678144

So, it SHOULD be the 28th

Yes, but we're technically already in the 4'th week of August.... ;)

edit: And since that tweet was made last friday, sunday would have been the start of the "next week" he's referring to. :)

Diablofans had some info from datamining the patch, but only a name "Paragon Level" and no details. This is a nice add on. I have 4 chars at level 60, but now I can concentrate on my favorite again (the monk) and only piddle around with the others from time to time. I have to get my barb to level 60 just so I can have a full set of 60s, but this will probably draw me away from playing alts as I try and max out that MF and GF with Paragon Levels!

3 Months in and we are seeing major changes. Yes, the randomness of the gear drops will always be a piss off for many, but I see it as just another part of the game. Every item that drops could be "the one", even if it turns out to be worthy of posting in the iLvl 63 Hall of Shame :)
