Surely it can't be worse than WoW expansion release days. 5000 people trying to kill a mob for a quest is not fun.

just blew through Act I and did a couple missions of Act II with 3 friends and it was interesting. The game hasn't grabbed me the same way D1 and D2 did - and frankly, i think i had more fun playing the Torchlight 2 Beta than I have this.

There are some nice nods to old fans (you'll know 'em when you see 'em) but otherwise it just seems odd. Its almost like they wrote the story expecting nobody to know the context and all the NPCs seem a little bit surprised about the whole current events and so far the game feels like its just a 3D version of Diablo 2 (especially the Act progression so far). Even if 3 & 4 are drastically different, 1 & 2 are still acts 1 & 2 of D2.

Character creation is laughable at the moment too. I'm only level 15 but the game has so far just given me skills as I got up with a few minor rune changes that just make the skills stronger (and from how the unlockables look its just going to keep doing this until max level). Its pretty much pointing more points into a skill except the game does it for you. So levelin' up is a bit of a non-event.

Gameplay is a bit all over the show. It seems to fluctuate in difficulty quite a bit - although playing 4 player might have just been harder when we weren't all hitting the right combos together or something.

Loot has all been meh so far.

Also, the fucking UI sucks. Chat is really hard to see - as is almost all text including items. I can't imagine how horrible it must be for people on higher resolutions.

Oh well, despite my hates i'll still play it to death. I mean, it's freeking diablo!! Even if it sucks (which it kind of does so far) its still awesome, right? :?

Inferno is fucking gg. Bosses are shitting on me so hard, and it takes like 10wipes+ before I can clear yellows
