I downloaded the free beta weekend and only gave it like 30 minutes of play. It was too radical of a change... I tried to be open minded but all the things I liked about Diablo 2 were not there, not really. The skill tree had me crying in horror! I want to customize-- I want to apply stats even if they mean nothing, give me that feel of crafting my character.
Changes to inventory and picking up gold/potions are sweet, taking some tedious chores out of the mix...
I was a pretty regular Diablo 2 player, never online though. I purchased the game at release back in 2000 and kept it all the way through 2009 when I threw it in the trash in an effort to stop myself from booting up a new play through on my umpteenth character. Sometimes you just have to move on... (I'm still getting D2 itches 3 years later
