Agreed! Be open minded and dont do the same shit over and over again! +1 from me, buddy!
No they havn't. And actually they have already gotten lots of complaints.
And yes the idea of a monk is great, but the way they executed this was horrible. Most dissapointly it doesn't match the dark gothic fantasy theme which most Diablo fans have loved since the first Diablo game and lore-books.
If you care about the gothic concept of the Diablo history and lore, you will find this new addition most unsuitable. This new Monk class, could easily have been a street fighter character. It could have been done so much more dark & gothic in my oppinion. And I will create a concept drawing of how I think the Monk should have been like, to make an example.
I mean listen to this "Way of the Hundred Fists" and just take a look at "Seven-Sided Strike". Even though it looks cool (again manga was the first to come up with the sudden-teleportish strike effect). It just ain't fitting for the Diablo universe...
I'm not saying that the Monk isn't awesome. I think the artists did a great job. But it doesn't fit the Diablo universe!
I neever said that you agreed with them ;-)
Yeah. I have nothing against *a* monk as a class, but *this* monk is just ridiculous. I'm not against replacing the paladin but compared to the monk we have now, the paladin >>>>> monk.
Go whine somewhere else, this is suggestion forum, not "i dont agree with you" forum
.... This whole thread doesn't belong in suggestions. It's ironic that you're posting this only because you don't agree with me. Especially ironic because you're whining because you don't agree.
Edit: hey retarded silent, if you're gonna edit my post, don't add in random spelling errors to make me look stupid, thanks. And now you're telling I'm flaming? Well, good job at making me flame you. I'm sure everyone will be cheering on you now.
Well, to me the monk feels too much like a Dnd 3.5 ripoff
But what could you expect from blizzard... anyway -.-
Gee um the Monk is not Such a shocking news.. I mean even in D2 you could kick enemies and somewhat beat the crap out of mobs with the Assassin. Aaand the Monk is using her fist weapons and stuff... so chill out Archian! ^^ Maybe he Is a bit too 'manga'.. He seems ruthless, not too gothic but making one hell of a bloodbath!
I assume that this thread could've been used to suggest things, but hey, what do you know? As long as there's no moderation, no-one seems to care.
So you complain about the Monk because of his lore and art style?
I honestly gotta admit that his cinematic Intro is a horrible dragon-ball alike.
However ingame that does NOT matter.
The most important thing, as it should always be, is the gameplay. And that's just wonderful. With the Monk the developers managed to get a new really unique class in. It obviously plays completely different from the others which is just great for replayability and customization etc.
I really like Blizzards so called "Character Design Philosophy".
Even though the lore and art will not please some guys, it does not really matter. I doubt he will be a complete atmosphere killer ;P
Everyone.. just stop it.
Eleandor is right, i said the same thing, this thread does not belong in suggestions becouse we have already said that we will add classes that blizzard reveal and since Monk is one of them, he does not belong in this section.
Is that clear now?
Just wanting to point one thing out... Monk was already in Diablo1: Hellfire (Expansion that wasn't made by Blizzard but they still approved it), so stop saying it doesn't fit Diablo universe.
Diablo I and Diablo III are far from being similar... Diablo is more dark and gothic game yes. Diablo III is more like gothic and gore game.
Monk is more like a fighter yea... could be better, idea is fine, but he's maybe too fast with his fighting style, like some kind of japanese anime.
Anyway, its not that bad. And isnt he like agility character more like ?
Seriously. Shut up.
This isn't your game, so let it go. Complaining is one thing, but to say that what they're doing is "ruining the Diablo universe" is really stupid. You're not the creator of Diablo, nor are you a historian of said universe.
And from your posistion, didn't Diablo 2 ruin Diablo? Multiple towns, new characters, the hero becomes Diablo. How dare they! The hero was suppsoe to be able to sustain Diablo!
And why aren't you complaining about the possibility of Diablo being resurrected? Didn't we kill him not ONCE, but TWICE?! But no, you insist on complaining on a character choice THAT WAS IN the original Diablo.
Seriously man. Back off. Diablo is not your game, it's Blizzards. If you don't like the idea, then don't play the game.
EDIT: This just occured to me. Aren't the monk and assassin similiar? Infact... The assassin did more damage (and different) with more combo points. The Monk and the Assassin have the same skill sets (so it seems at the moment), but yet... you're complaining?
if you read the story that is on the monks character page, they actually do pull off a dark feel with it.
i personally think that the monk will work fine, and ffs stop complaining about his combat, he's like the assassin there is NO PROBLEM WITH IT.
finally stop saying that characters from previous diablos would have worked better. guess what? appart from the barbarian no other previous diablo character choices will appear in diablo.
I want to add that they've officially said the Monk has nothing to do with D1: Hellfire's Monk. Also - the Witch Doctor is a "Druid/Necromancer" and the Monk is a "Paladin/Assassin".
@doublespeak, good point!
Dude, you're talkin' way over your head. Read my post again..
Of course I'm not the creator of the Diablo saga nor am I a writer of the story or lore for that matter. That has nothing to do with anything?
Niether did I ever say that the new class is "ruining the Diablo universe".
And all your talk about not complaining about Diablo being brought back in in this third installment of Blizzard's Diablo franchise. Is unrelevant..
You're talkin' out of your ass. Pardon my language.
Oh, please. Grow up -_-
WARNING - This is getting sligtly off-topic.
I said that before aswell.
BUT, not only that diablo 1 and 3 is very different, the both monks is totally different aswell? And afterall, that monk isnt blizzards work
And this topic is not for flaming and spaming everyone..
If you dont agree with someone say it nicely insted of starting a war..
Yeah, I don't think I need to say anything else. If you're going to argue, at least take a side first. You say that it doesn't fit with the lore, and not part of the universe, then you deny that. So which is it?
And you're telling me to grow up, for telling you that the game doesn't belong to you, so whether or not you think it does or doesn't fit doesn't really matter. Are you not going to play the game because Blizzard bent their lore (if they did)? Doubtful.
