There's a lack of skill involved in Diablo 3, how long will it last?

the only reason WoW pvp was "better" in tbc, was because people where shit, and it was still unbalanced as fuck with a lot les viable options.

rmah tomorrow, hope you guys got rid of gold and bought items aleady, hyperinflation inc

No, the reason wow pvp was better in TBC was because you didn't have comps reliant on bursting somebody in 2 seconds. You had to actually outplay your opponents and use some strategy as opposed to "K, POP BLOODLUST AND BURST THAT BITCH!"

Yes. Not a doubt in my mind. You can't recover from mistakes now. You take 1 wrong misstep, you get instantly murdered. You do that in TBC? Well the other team has to capitalize on it and keep that momentum for a bit. The game has a lot more chances to go back and forth. Now it's just a "FUCK I HAD VISION ON HIM FOR .5 SECONDS AND NOW HES DEAD LOLOLOL".

you're saying pvp was better in tbc because it's more forgiving when you're bad? what?

tbc arena was a complete joke, stop being all nostalgic about it

burst in wotlk wasn't even that bad outside of s5 and some of s6, 99% of the time if you got "globaled" it's because you had shit awful positioning or shit awful teamwork and allowed two casters to cast into you because you're too bad to pay attention to anything else happening around you except for the one dude you're currently tunneling

Wrong. TBC you could recover from 1 misstep, and the other team could capitalize on it. There's skill in being able to recover from shit. There's no skill in rolling shaman and hitting bloodlust.

actually it's much, much, much easier to recover from mistakes in wotlk, as the game was even more ridiculously comp based in tbc

you must be having a hard time remembering how impossible it was to beat counters in tbc (warrior druid vs rogue spriest, rogue mage vs warrior shaman?)

I think TBC arena PvP took more skill as the strategy (to me) felt more in depth in terms of rotating CC because the damage output wasn't high enough (usually) to drop someone from 100% to 0% in a blanket silence or something.  The biggest thing to me was the amount of coordination/communication to set up a chain of movies in order to secure a win.

I felt like you didn't have to string along as much CC, set up as much, etc. past TBC in order to net a win. I don't think this necessarily lends TBC to be more forgiving than post-TBC PvP, thinking of it this way.  I think if you messed up your CC (and maybe this is what Kelustu is getting at) or if you messed up one of your steps in a long series of steps, it set you back quite a bit.

So, it's a comparison to me of a marathon vs. a sprint, sort of.  TBC was more planning, more thought, more endurance (more similar to a RTS).  Post TBC was more twitch reflex (more similar to a FPS).

I don't know if that makes either one more skillful, just perhaps different skill sets.  I do think TBC required more skill but then again others don't (and I don't really give that much of a shit).  I just felt like sharing something off the top of my head which hopefully makes some sense because I don't feel 100% atm and I'm just rambling.

I'm not gonna search for it because I don't feel like it right now, but it was in the Priest Forums, posted by an undead priest named Belarin (I think that's the spelling).  His long post about TBC PvP seeming more chess oriented is the best way to describe how I felt about TBC PvP probably and why I enjoyed it so much and didn't care for (and why I quit) WOTLK PvP, let alone Cata.

I've been playing for a few weeks here.  I originally had the same sentiment as the OP, but I figured it was just because I hadn't advanced yet.  Boy was I wrong.  No matter how far you advance, there's really no challenge in it at all.  The only reason I've kept playing is because I already spent the $60, and I figured that once I got to level 60 I'd be in for a treat.  Not the case. This game is boring.

League's boring as fuck now. I've plateaued at roughly 1950. I'm never going to be better than that, and I'm hugely at the mercy of my teammates. If ranked teams were more serious outside of the top .01%, it might be more fun. I just hate random matchmaking more than anything in the world.

Ugh tbc, go play on the tournament server tbc and then wotlk ...see which you like better lol.

The game was too slow paced, not to mention comp/class variety was shit.
I'm always right.

Fight a unique pack for 10 mintues flawlessly, jolt lag and get hit once - dead; how do you not have fun?

I got bored within the first month. It was a real let down, considering I was playing Diablo 2 up until D3 came out. Honestly, at this point, I will probably pick D2 back up before D3.

Until Blizzard decides to answer to what the players want and not to how much money they want
