Shabooty Nerd Rant of The Day: #Diablo3 #ReaperOfSouls
I’ll try to make this rant as short and as least nerdy as possible. Lately, I’ve been playing Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls (expansion pack). Right now I am a Level 70 Level + 177 Paragon Level Monk. The way the game works is, the higher your level, the higher stat points your character has, and the overall more powerful your character is. And then there are difficulties like Torment Level 1-6. Right now, I’ve been playing Torment 4. Which is hella difficult. It’s a “gear check” (and paragon level check) as they say. Now, here’s the dilemma…
When you play public games, you might be a Paragon 177, but a paragon level 55 might hop into your game. Now these players are wayyy, wayy, way under-leveled to handle Torment 4. But the reason they jump into the Torment 3 & 4 games is because it gives high amounts of experience, gold and magic find, and items. In other words, if you’re Paragon level 50 and you get into a Torment 4 game and a high level Paragon player like level 300 carries you (kills most of the monsters) and you coast along, you’re still getting all of that experience, items, gold, etc. So you’ll always see a newbie player hopping in the game. As a Paragon 177, I can’t be having that shit! The elite mobs are so difficult, even if you have 1 weak player in your group, you will get pwned. Now, I am a pretty nice dude in real life, but yesterday I was getting power hungry. When a low level player hops in, you can do a ‘Vote Kick’, and you and your teammates have the option of voting to kick the player. I did this several times yesterday–which was hella mean, but hella necessary. And sorta funny in an effed up kinda way. Heck, I even had it happen to me once before. I hopped into a game, and within seconds (they were higher level players, playing a Nephalem Rift level) and I got the “Please find safety, you are being removed from the game” message. Did it upset me? No, maybe, kinda, sorta, okay–hell yes!
Here’s my hero by the way (pictured above), if you want to see my gear, stats, and Monk build. People are mad jealous of my weapon. End rant.
