Just curious to see if anyone else is looking forward to this. Other than Hearthstone, Diablo II is the only game I ever played in my adult life - an impulse buy for the first pc I ever owned that turned into an addictive, immersive gameplay experience. I have a lot of good memories of triggering multiple corpse explosions with my bonemancer. I never buy games, but seriously contemplating picking up a copy of this when it comes out so I can relive those memories :)
May all your legendaries be golden.
I love Diablo 2 but i stopped looking forward to anythings Activision-Blizzard related a long time ago.
Ive watched some videos on the alpha build and aside from some of the interface looking bizarrely worse than the originals, it has largely been revamped graphically so its not going to be another reforged bs incident. There are some reports of bugs, but this is an alpha so I hope blizz retains enough of their honor to not screw this up on launch.
Im definitely looking forward to it, having spent many hours in the original d2. The worts and all remake is okay as a concept, but I really hope they add in a few surprises along, like better animations. One thing definitely on my wishlist is that they do something about the attack speed tied to no. of frames rubbish in the original d2 so when something reads 'faster attack speed' it actually means faster attack speed.
I'm cautiously optimistic.
D2 has a lot of nostalgia for me and would very much like to replay it with a modern twist. I do hope though they add the QOL that were done by mods over the years since it was released.
