This text is mostly from my original post on the official Diablo 3 forums. It is replicated here for the general internet community to see: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/16952355725 Update: April 17, 2015 Tyvalir commented on my post and Blizzard is listening! The “Open Letter” is now closed. 🙂 Direct Link. 04/16/2015 11:00 AM Posted by Tyvalir Great feedback! You all have my thanks for sharing your perspectives so constructively here. Even fifteen pages later, I can see that most responses are on topic and respectful in their tone. *insert applause* I’m still parsing [Continue Reading]

With the release of Diablo 3 Patch 2.1.0 on August 26, 2014, a bug was introduced with people logging in and having no Achievements displayed. Blizzard employees acknowledged this bug, but their “easy fix” did not work for either my wife or I. Well, I have a fix: Diablo 3 Patch 2.1.0 Achievement fix: In the battle.net launcher, change region to Europe (this is assuming you are playing on Americas. If not, change to an alternate region). Create character there and log into it. After fully logging in, exit game [Continue Reading]

TLDNR Give Me The Fix Now: Having poor frame rate with diablo 3 patch 1.0.5 during Maghda Encounter? I have a quick fix! Simply make… c:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III\D3Debug.txt Read-only by right clicking the file, selecting properties, then check “Read-only” under Attributes. Introduction Two days ago, during the Maghda Encounter with Diablo 3 on my Hardcore Character, I had extremely poor frame rates which ultimately killed my character due to less than 5 FPS with periods of no updates for many seconds. I was pissed. I blamed it on my computer [Continue Reading]

Diablo 3 Multiboxing: Possible Or Not? In short, yes! Controlling 2 to 4 characters in Diablo 3 is possible with 2 to 4 seperate accounts, game purchases and free mouse replication software, but is it practical? Unfortunately, the answer is no for the average gamer, including me at this time. I just tried this using Input Director and Desktop + Laptop (on board graphics) running at same resolution (1366 x 768) using two beta accounts (wife and my account) and created two new characters. The reason multiboxing Diablo 3 Beta is [Continue Reading]

In Mid February, I will retire from World of Warcraft. My 10 Horde characters are now at max level cap (85) and I cannot find anything else to do to keep my interest. I have done most achievements on my main Priest and experienced every character class at cap over the last 8 years with over 700+ days /played time across all characters. I have raided with guildies, I have pugged easy as well as difficult instances and trained many people on the in’s and out’s of the game. Now it is time to move [Continue Reading]

Since, in recent history, I displayed quite a distaste for FF14, I thought I would post some good news for those gamers looking for a World of Warcraft alternative without having to relearn a game from scratch, as well as be forced to fight through silly game breaking bugs that 30 minutes of game play could have identified. RIFT was recently released and I thought I would give it a shot. Honestly, I was not expecting much as I have been disappointed greatly in the lack of quality game releases the last [Continue Reading]
