looking forward to this title, as all the good stratageys would not have been found so I won't be locked in to playing only one thing.
Why would you have to play it minimaxed just because someone knows how to?
Because they'll laugh at you. And if you want to party with people having a bad spec that you know could be better would possibly be considered griefing.
Maybe my inability to understand you is because to me, Diablo is a single-player game.
Diablo 3 and Torchlight 2 out at the same time sounds awesome!
In the meantime, I'll occupy myself with Sacred 2 and Titan Quest, with maybe some Torchlight 1 thrown in for good measure.
And then there's Dungeon Siege 3 in June!
Looks like my summer break is all planned out.
....You mean I'm not the only Sacred 2 fan here?! EEEEEE
Er, anyways, yeah, until this comes out I'll bust myself with Sacred 2 (especially since a new update for the CM patch came out recently). I may also take back up Torchlight and Fate: Traitor Soul (3 games for the price of 1? Hell yes.)
I refuse to acknowledge the existence of any multiplayer aspect to any current or future Diablo games.
Snarkiness aside, did we ever get the new classes (I recall something about a Witch Doctor)? I stopped following the news a while ago since I figured it would be a good few years before D3 came out.
I think it's faster to just link you the wiki.
Looking those over, I can't imagine I'll go with anything but the witch doctor.
I mean, he gets a zombie dog first tier.
A ZOMBIE. DOG.
I mostly played D2 offline, at first. Then I discovered it had BattleNet and tried it in multiplayer. I didn't have any fun, so I switched back to single-player for good.
There's a sense of loneliness, with the odds stacked against you, when you're playing offline. It kinda ruins the mood when you have guys throwing cheat-generated runes everywhere on the hub, killing Baal every five seconds and calling you a noobscrub because you're under level 100.
The worst case scenario I can think for D3 is that I have to play it online.
D3 is written by Tim Burton?

Public beta in Q3 2011 CONFIRMED.
Jeff Green (former CGW editor) tweeted: "Will sell my body to science for a spot on the Diablo 3 beta."
Well, it's impossible to go beyond lvl 99. So everyone is a noobscrub if they say that.
Correction: It's impossible to go beyond level 99 in the unmodified game.
I haven't been on Battlenet in years, and I don't think I ever will again. The Halo community is put to shame by some of those people.
Not a Diablo fan, but I decided to put this here: Diablo 3 Auction House Annonced.
Decided to use the link on MMO Champ cause I couldn't find anything on D3's wesite about this.
Also always on DR< to prevent cheating (who cares if someone cheats in SP?) and item duping (Uh... yeah...)
^Blizzard thinks Achievements are Serious Business if banning people who cheat in SC 2 SP is anything to go by.
Also....really not a fan of the idea that Blizzard is encouraging gold farming and trying to get in on the market by getting a cut of everyone's cash. Yeesh....not a good vibe. I was almost looking forward to D3 but this news really puts me off even if the gold farming wouldn't affect me.

^^^Fun botting times are to be had by everyone. I also think I would like to see that system for WOW, but they wouldn't spread it until a very extensive trial by fire in Diablo. And even then, if it goes all right and the decide to enter it into WOW, I doubt it will be earlier than a next big xpack.

Auction house is bad? Constant internet connection required AND no mod, period.
What, not even harmless WOW interface mods? Dumb.
There are definitely better reasons to require the Internet connection here than in Assassin's Creed or Star Craft, what with the trading and whatnot (I can't say I've never found a great drop offline and been bitter that I couldn't trade it for something actually useful to my character), but better reasons don't necessarily mean good reasons.

If they though that enough customers would want it for them to care, they could make an offline mode, completely separate from online - no auction, no trading, no transfers, nothing, just a playground. But it seems they do not.
I know plenty of people who only played Diablo 2 singleplayer and couldn't give a damn about the battle.net aspect of it. With each new reveal, it seems like Diablo 3 is going to be a highly limited, carefully controlled environment, in which the player's options for screwing around are severed handicapped (just like World Of Warcraft.)

Well, when blizz had an idea about real money auction, they were bound to make it as tight as possible even if they weren't going to before.
Other stuff: traits are apparently gone, and there's a 10-character limit on each account, with account sharing banned.
