Magic Find Gear Swapping - Blizzard's response
Written by: Mag | Date: 2012-07-04 09:28:39 | Related to: Diablo 3 - press review
Blizzard has proposed five options to solve the problem with the Magic Find gear swapping. Here they are:
Option 1: Set a Magic Find Cap
Option 2: Slowly Adjust Magic Find Over Time
Option 3: Use your average MF% or your lowest MF% of the last 5 minutes
Option 4: Zero-Out Your MF% for 3 Minutes After Swapping Gear
Option 5: Gear Swapping Interacts with Nephalem Valor

|I opted for another option: dont' fix it unless it's broken...|
|personally i like the 5th option. it doesnt solve all the problems but its better than others. Previous options either unnecessarily prolonged the whole process because players will stand in the place with a watch and wait or just marginalize any items with mf.|
|Dont like this "trying to make the perfect game" shit. +1 Jorr, dont fix stuff that arent problems. Gear switching is a pain in the ass, so you should be well rewarded for doing it 10x/hour (well 20 since you gotta go back).
|Agree with jorrit and spirals, asking myself what bli$$$$$$ard is doing. Nerf the game down to a userbase of 1000 players ... ? All the systems the iterated for years, especially NV, MF, legendary and set drop rates, stat distribution on items (roflpeter) ... seems like they didn't think much when they created this bunch of broken mechanics.|
|Jorrit and Spirals. xD|
|FFS Jointit, Jorrit, both start with J. Best would be if I could rename you to jointbert in this forums.|
|Only if you let me call you Tard-Bert :D
Btw - D2 game creating was far superior to d3. I feel like a sheep now. "hello i want to play, let me join a game". "Okay, I put you in somewhere". FFS, let me decide what game, let me decide what to call it etc. Not being able to create a game (and naming it like "item farming-01"...) and not having different channels (like Swe-1, trade-1, EP, Sorc tower, Postreality...) is the biggest downsides so far I think.
But ok, MF GEAR SWAPPING IS MEGA IMPORTANT LETS WORK ON IT GUYS! HOW DO WE STOP PPL FROM SWAPPING GEAR!?!? THEY SHOULD ALL PLAY LIKE WE INTENDED!!!!
morning madness ftw.
|Yeah they focus on absolutely irrelevant stuff. I don't know but I have a bad feeling regarding future development.
Good morning jointbert, you may eat some heidelbert yoghurt to calm down.
