    I’m surprised there isn’t a page for this yet? Or I couldn’t find one anyway.

    I would think now it’s getting very close and all the comments I’ve seen on the payment model so far would attract a lot of people from here since there’s no energy systems or all the freemium crap with ads that we all hate.

    I haven’t played Diablo since Diablo 2 originally released though! So I’m certainly looking forward to it and been watching a lot of videos from creators and reading all the info on maxroll to help get me ready.

    It’s a placeholder date from what I’ve seen which was confirmed by blizzard, many seem to believe that it will be before that and I do too.

    They aren’t going to hype up a long stream to tell us it’s delayed, must be a release date along with showing off the game again or maybe some new info although unless they added something new there can’t be much new to tell us.

    Yes I watched the livestream, although I’m actually less hyped rather than excited. If pc players don’t slate the game with terrible reviews because it was originally a mobile game and has iaps…then there’s the issue for me that a PC player is simply going to be better at the game because of the far superior controls. Sure there will be some amazing gamers that can compete in leaderboards but in general most mobile gamers will not be able to and then why would a pc gamer want to group with a mobile player that will be worse at the game because their controls will not be as quick and accurate and easy to input at the same time as on a pc.

    Plus they may have a larger view of what’s going on and with d3 and d2r for them to play and d4 in, in-house testing….is it just going to kill the game because they may not hit the numbers they are expecting between pc and mobile combined and would likely loose all pc players they do get to d4 when that releases….when as a mobile only game it could have gone on forever.

    Yes there’s a monthly season pass, deals linked to progress that offered the best value at the time and a monthly purchase although they said they weren’t happy with that one and were going to change it. You could also buy currency and gems I believe? They said cosmetics would be purchasable too but I haven’t seen any yet.

    But so far from the videos I watched on it, it wasn’t p2w but someone spending could become more powerful more quickly because they have access to buying more legendary crests. They can’t buy gear but can get legendary crests that make rifts drop legendary gems. Although all of that is subject to change since the last beta and I would think they would not go too overboard since they are including PC now but is is a free game so they have to make money somewhere.

    Gotcha yeah ok I don’t usually go for free to play but I’ve been waiting to try this out for a while so hopefully there’s a way to play the game without spending too much

    You definitely don’t have to spend anything at all and there’s no energy systems or anything so you can play as much as you want and not be locked out of anything.

    Nice that before the launch of a game like this I’ve decided what I’ll play. I’m going to be a Wizard, usually a decision I’m agonising over even at launch and constantly questioning

    Let me know if anyone spots it! I guess if it’ll propagate out as normal for apps it’ll likely come out in AU and NZ first?

    I’ve got a similar dilemma: Necromancer or Wizard? :)
