Well, this at least seems like a nice little something to get people to continue to play at max level. It is a great idea, and over time people with a bit lesser gear should be strong enough to continue to advance.
I really like the idea....but I have not yet tried it out.
I have logged on twice with the idea of giving it a shot. The first time was patch day, and it was way too laggy.
The second day, I logged on and was just not feeling like Diablo.
I am sure that I will be trying it at some point fairly soon, but I am not sure when. D3 seems to be going to the right direction.
What are your thoughts on the new things in D3 including the buffs to seldom used abilities?
