Why do you have to have the best items in the game to enjoy it? I used to have hours of fun in single player with shitty items, and i still do with high level chars and decent items on bnet. If a player isnt skilled enough or doesnt have enough time to aquire these items, why should they get them then? They wont be playing it much, and they dont know how to use them to the best of their ability. Buying items takes away the CHALLENGE of a game. The game was not created with the intention of players being able to buy items and characters with real money, so it should stay that way.
Who wouldnt need/want that feeling? If they didnt, then they wouldnt be looking for the items in the first place? I mean, think about it, if they didnt need satisfaction from getting an item, chances are they would have all the items they want/need.
i agree i would never do it...
but if you think about it... spending 20 hours trying to find 1 certain items is a hastle.. (me when i started d2...)
when u can buy it on ebay for a few bucks?
Yes. True. But the satisfaction of finnally finding/getting that item is far greater than paying for it and receiving it hassle free. You feel like all your HARD WORK has paid off, instead of just buying the item from someone elses effort.
Yay...lets all go out and buy pixels! We can only ever use them in a game that isnt going to last forever, and we cant use them in real life, but hey its totally worth it! NOT! Whether you buy or sell d2 items or characters, its all wrong. Pathetic is a better word.
