Some new info about incoming PvP mode.
"The fun in D2 was to destroy other players and get their ears."
While this is not true for everybody, we totally acknowledge that a lot of people feel this way. Because PvP is so extremely important to quite a few people, it is important to us that the PvP systems we will implement actually work well and are fun to play, and we did not feel this was the case for Team Deathmatch mode for the reasons explained in the blog.
In regards to Diablo II, that game was never really designed as a PvP game, but over time a PvP culture developed around the duelling system that resulted in a lot of people putting a lot of effort of that game into creating and gearing duelling characters. This should hopefully become possible in Diablo III as well come patch 1.0.7.
Again, it is important to emphasise that PvP in Diablo III hasn't been scrapped. While Team Deathmatch mode might not happen in the format that was shown at BlizzCon, something else will.
|Blizz officialy says we should develop pvp system ourselves :D hope for team duels :)|
|On one hand, I'm happy about that. Blizzard acknowledged the existence of player-based clan leagues (something I was afraid of, thinking that Blizz might want to have monopoly on PvP in D3 the same way they did with AH). But on the other hand, it feels like we will have to do it again all by ourselves, with no, or little, help from Blizz. Having in mind that it's 2013, not 1993, it kinda sucks.|
|yet a year ago blizz was somehow hostile to any communities. what a change... they've relized that whithout organized group of players, this game will be dead (now is almost dead ;))|
|Maybe time to contact them alongside with profiling ourselves and what we do?|
