    Why gold auto pick-up? Why not just deposit the gold directly into the player's inventory? This is a genuine question.

    The answer is probably the same as was their answer as to why do you need to Identify items in Diablo 3 when you can just click them in the inventory. They equate it to opening gift wrapping. Small continuous dopamine spikes as you gain or discover something new. There's a slot-machine like attraction to the sound and the event of picking up something but it now is distilled to least effort possible while retaining the element. That'd be my wager.

    You could still have the dopamine-inducing sounds and floating text around your character saying +10 gold or something, but with less clicking the ground trying to get to the gold.

    Maybe their psychologists told them that retaining even least amount of effort amplifies the satisfaction offering direct cause-reaction loop.

    Are they going to make the drop rates less on the acid trip Korean MMORPG grind level or would that ruin the purity and hardcore integrity of THE GAME?

    Not enabling mods is probably the biggest mistake of this remaster.

    If they wont allow mods on battle.net, then they must change the game to bring it up to date with popular mods, or the game dies fast.

    I did play all of them along with pretty much all mods to even D1 which i played as late as 2 months ago. They have some QOL but playing 24 fps on some shitty resolution hacked into game with super lags because D2 shitty netcode isn't great thing.

    D2 with Puty is pretty much still the best experience you can get.

    As it stands the game is worth exactly 0 dollaridoos.

    Reminder not to support modern Blizzard.

    Blizzard can make great cinematics. We get it. More news at 11. Too bad however that they can't update a fucking game without censoring its art first.

    You'd be a massive retard to actually think the remastered graphcis are bad.

    They are extremely faithful and tasteful to the vanilla, why? becuase its essentially running on top the base game.


    This is how you do a proper remaster.. fuck u, and fuck the haters.

    The overall art on monster and lightning its pretty good but the problem is the color palette of the monsters, they blend with the environment compared to the classic D2 where the color palette you can see then without any issues.

    As for character designs I think only Sorc and Necro remained faithful to their original counterpart, I know we are on codex and people chimp out with black people but Paladin looks like Lamar from GTA V its almost sound like the dev is being ironically racist with the character.

    Druid they aged him like milk for unknown reasons? When you could see he was young in the concept art

    Amazon jokes a part about being trans but as much you spend time staring you can see an old lady at her 50's almost 60. Like it could be a cool concept for a new game but for amazon in D2 she was a women on her 20s peak youth and body health.

    Barbarian they turned him into Norf FC meme, he looks like a old ass hooligan on his 40's with a beer gut, tired waiting for England to score some fucking goals

    Assassin they turned her into asian for fucking reasons? When she was a goth white chick? I'm asian I don't need this sort of representation if anything I feel really insulted with this retarded way of scoring brownie points. Follow the fucking original artwork if you want to add asian character create a proper new IP and don't reuse old stuff because you are too lazy to create something new and interesting

    Now on game quality I ain't buying unless they fix the melee netcode and B.NET on beta it showed a really dread scenario of Blizzard doing the bare minimum regarding quality of life. I don't trust VV in this remaster at all if anything show they never touched D2 in their lifetimes or just played normal campaign once and called a day.

    Well, they made her Asian for a reason, they haven't pulled that out of their ass. The assassin order she comes from is Eastern. Maybe she was always supposed to be Asian, but they didn't do a good job representing that in the concept art. Or maybe it wasn't in the lore yet.

    All right I'm gonna say it: Druid was always ugly as fuck. He originally looked like a dude with a receding hairline, now he looks like a cracked out Nord. Who cares, Druids were gay anyways.

    Assassin, Paladin, Amazon, Barbarian got smashed the worst.

    I am not talking about the graphics, I am talking about the art style. I myself have no problem on how the game looks, but I have a problem with people injecting their shitty feminist dogma (male gaze bad! sexual objectification of women bad!) into a 20 years old game and then call it a "faithful" remaster. There was absolutely no reason to fucking censor anything in this game, but they did it anyway, and this is what pissing me off.

    Uh.... in a fantasy world? So ALL EASTERN lands in ANY WORLD are fucking Asian even if No ASIA exists? That's fucking retarded. No, this is pure Chink China Blizz influence. I'm fucking surprised they aren't all Asian-themed.

    Well, we have
    Trans
    Goth
    Nigger
    Hobo/homeless
    Large chunky chad
    And magic chick.

    They didn't want to redo all the voice acting.

    If they redid the VA it would mean they would had plans to add future content for the game.

    Like the art is just the tip of the iceberg. So far my experience with the "new" BNET its a nostalgic experience with dial up modem back in 1999, shit was rubberbanding all over the place. Melee characters still have the issue if something is moving you wont hit at all.
    Also probably they didn't fix the runeduping issues and botting.

    People are hoping for all those QoL from PD2, they won't get any, its a bare minimum effort release to get those MAUs up from zoomers so they don't look so bad in the next semester report to their investors.

    Enjoy autopick up gold and shared stash I guess?

    I do recommend this voice tone for the new Amazon:
