D3 needs a Ladder system
difference bein this game needs rejuvinating already, now if I had my guess id say there will be a ladder but itl be a year or so after the expansion comes out.... because we'll get a reset of sorts from the expansion most likely at least in terms of having new items/classes in the economy then theyl input a ladder once that blows up... but they could use one already to tied people over till the expansion comes outfar too long from now diablo 3 account buy
because the droprates can be much higher in a ladder-system. i want a treasure hunt and not a flipping game. doubt that blizzard can fix itemization without a laddersystem... if bis items drop Diablo 3 item in a "fair" manner the ah will be flooded after a certain amount of time...
800+ h without a single bis drop is frustrating... in d2 u could find stuff like sojs, highrunes (in the last days), ik armor... once or twice a week (3-4 hours of playtime a day)
No game based on an ever expanding economy will last forever without resets. In the case of MMOs, they get kind of a soft reset because of their expansions, new powerful items come out and all the old stuff is worthless, so the economy kinda refreshes itself a bit every now and then diablo 3 items buy.
In the case of Diablo, it's a bit more complicated, since its a loot based game, so it needs full resets to last for long, like D2. There's nothing new here to invent or new ideas to bring on the table, everything is there they just need to implement it.
