    I guess the friend invites not working is because you are on the American server and I'm on the European. No interlinking between those. You can play on other servers, but you have to make new friend lists and new characters.

    You may be disappointed, but entitled gamers get angry :)
    Quasi-related to the entitled angry gamers thing, D3 has a lot of reused areas. This doesn't bother me at all. But I find it HILARIOUS that I haven't really heard any complaints about it, even though that's one of the main reasons people say DA2 sucks. Lulz hypocrisy.

    I thought Steam didn't even really have a working offline mode?

    I'd speculate that the ones who feel entitled to play the game without paying for it won't have to worry about that. Whenever it gets cracked, anyway.

    The only time I've had trouble with offline mode was when I had something trying to update. So, I was offline, but it tried to update upon launch. It was a loop of uselessness, never letting me in, since it wouldn't let you in to cancel the update. But, hey... the option was there.

    I wouldn't get angry about a game. I would stop playing it instead and/or not spend on it.

    Perhaps go as far as recognize the company as making games I don't enjoy, and try to avoid them in the future. Tell friends when they ask for game recommendations.

    Companies like Blizz can get away with a lot, because they make AAA games. As most games copy that, you end up with mostly indie games breaking the mold.

    Not really sure what you mean. Like how the randomly generated dungeons share tile sets? I'm fine with that, seeing as the layout of the map is different every time, as opposed to some gw1 eotn dungeons, which use identical maps.

    Edit: to clarify, I'm annoyed about no WASD and always-online.

    I was fine with reused tile sets in D2 and I probably will be fine with it in D3. Likewise, copy-pasted art such as monsters of different colors and such doesn't usually bother me. I care about gameplay mainly, and WASD aside, gameplay in D3 was pretty solid.

    Not having played it, I'm just taking a stab at this, but...

    It sounds either:

    1) D3 is going to the same areas as D1, D2, etc., and "reusing" them that way
    and/or
    2) You're going to area A, then later returning to area A after it's altered/infested/whatever

    The nature of Diablo games and their random generation is that you will see the reuse of tile sets. It's just the nature of the beast, IMO, so long as your random generation is tile-based (Diablo) and not procedural (Minecraft). I could be fundamentally misunderstanding how it all works, but in that case, maybe someone could better explain it.

    Yes, this is what I am referring to and I wasn't including you in the angry gamer subset. I actually didn't notice it in D3 until I saw the stairway where the Templar blasts through and you fight his former comrade in Act I reused. I probably went through dozens of reused tiles, but because that one was part of the story, it jumped out at me.

    Also, I don't particularly care that they reuse areas - I didn't care in DA 2, either. I just find it humorous that the DA2 reuse was a HUGE deal and no one seems to care about D3's. Granted, DA2 was a much worse offender than D3's.

    It pretty much focuses on how D3 is supposed to be a single-player game with multiplayer option, but it actually also brings up a bunch of additional problems such as getting disconnected for maintenance or if any Blizzard game crashes the server.
