    Blizzard took too many things out (and put too many shitty things in) for me to even consider buying this game after having played the beta. Honestly, I've had more fun playing Titan Quest and Torchlight than the D3 beta. No one really pays attention to the story, especially since it's always go here, fight this, move on, get new gear, so they can stop trying to justify their $60 price tag when games like Torchlight 2 are offering so much more for a third of the price. It's really sad to see a company like Blizzard get swallowed by the douchebags at activision and see games like this even allowed to be released in the state they're in. And people wonder why pirating is so high these days....most of us really don't want to spend our hard earned money for something that isn't worth it.

    I want my stat points back :( without it, everyone char stats are the same...

    The Cow Level was absolutely the #1 greatest thing about D2. With your description (which doesn't seem to take into account length of gameplay afforded), what's the difference between a level 99 level cap and a level 60 level cap? Again, based on your specific comments.

    "Fingers crossed that we’ll fight a ghostly / zombified / demon-spawn version of The Cow King – lord knows we never get tired of killing that lightning-enchanted fool." I don't think anyone I ever played with killed the King. In fact, it was pretty much a requirement to NOT kill the king when joining games, because once he was killed in "your" game you weren't able to re-open the portal to get back there. Once all the other cows were dead, you just simply left, and restarted again.

    Drawers of pure steel? How quaint... You probably mean "cojones".

    the thing i am going to miss most from diablo 2 to diablo 3 is being able to run it on my laptop

    I am going to miss the Fallen Shaman boss Bishibosh out in the Cold Plains. Always a favorite target when I would play, simply for the fact that he would always reliably explode into a large pile of bloody chunks upon death due to his Fire Enchanted attribute. Fare thee well sweet Bishibosh. I can only hope that the bloody explosions in D3 provide me with as much amusement as you have for all these years. And if they don't, well then I guess I can always fire up D2 and come stomp your ass into paste again for old time's sake.

    I will be able to die in peace once I've beaten Diablo 3.
  • hanzo-fritz-l - May 3, 2012 6:53 p.m.

    i will miss my necromancer...all who oppose me, beware....

    I just finished replaying Diablo 1 and Diablo 2. Although D2 will always have a special place for me, I gotta say it had some really annoying and tedious elements (terrible pathfinding, glitchy enemies appearing next to you suddenly, constant refilling of potion belt). So as much as I adored D2, I am REALLY glad we can move on to a more user-friendly D3. I trust Blizzard to make a worthy sequel. But yeah, I'll miss Alkor the hilarious Indian-accented alchemist from Kurast Docks. "Care to take a gander at my Grimoire?" LOL

    This really brings back good memories. I will definitely miss all of those things. One thing not on the list that I'll miss are the characters that didn't get moved to D3, especially the paladin. I'll also miss D2's skill and stat structure. It allowed for a lot more diversity than D3's system does.

    Someone on GR really loves The Wire, there has been a few references lately. I approve. (Now just try to sneak in some Deadwood, The Shield and Breaking Bad references and you have me forever)
  • NicVargus - May 3, 2012 4:43 p.m.

    Great article. I guess I knew, like, nothing about Diablo 2.
  • GR HollanderCooper - May 3, 2012 4:05 p.m.

    These all bring me back. My heart. It breaks. Goodbye, sweet dark prince.
  • lilbuddha - May 3, 2012 8:09 p.m.

    Words cannot express how much of a tool you are.

    Oh man. The memories. All of those things. I nearly cried when after a long stint of not logging on a few years back, I realized my LLD had poofed. He was perfect, capable of downing people twice his level easy. I'll definitely miss Hell Cows, LLD, ladder resets, and purely item based economy (auction house can suck it.) Also, seeing the hardcore ears haunts me, I never came close to playing hardcore and it pains me to consider.
