Event name: Diablo III - The Season of Grandeur
Event manager: Me! (Andrew / Skelden)
Minimum amount of players: 3
Date and time: TBD, provisionally Wednesday 6th February, 8PM - 10PM
Event description: Season 16 of Diablo III started earlier this month, so I figured this would be a good time to have an event. Ideally, we'd have more than one of these, but I thought first we'd have a sort of 'give it a go' session, see who turns up and arrange something more regular from there.
The beauty of Diablo III's season system is that there's a list of goals and objectives to work through for rewards, and everyone starts from scratch each time so no one's automatically really far ahead. We'll spend the first night picking our characters (ideally we have some variety), leveling up, and deciding if/when we want to do it next.
If future events are held it's easy enough to start at any time as people can always help you level. Once we have a solid team we'll see about pushing greater rifts and see how far we can get this season!
Hey Sarah! I think this time it will be on PC as the people I'd discussed it (Xander and Dan namely) both play on PC. However, I'd be more than happy to do a PS4 run at some point too as I have it on console as well. Unfortunately, Jamie has my PS4 at the moment to play through Kingdom Hearts III and to play FFXIV so I'll need to wait for to get it back. We'll definitely put a pin in it though if you and/or Roy are interested, even if it's just a few of us. :)
Similar to my reply to Sarah, I think we'd need to set up a separate event for the PS4 version. That either means waiting for a later date, or coordinating two groups (one for each platform). If there's enough interest to merit it then we can certainly look into it. :)
Im going to go ahead and approve this event as you have the minimum amount of sign ups requested. :)
If anyone is still interested in participating in this event feel free to sign up on the forums or guild calendar to express interest and show the expected attendance :)
Thanks to everyone who came along to the Diablo III event tonight! We got everyone up to level 70, got some okay gear to start off with, and a decent amount of Paragon levels. Now we can all start figuring out builds and then start pushing Greater Rifts!
I'll be putting together a Doodle Poll soon to see when people are available for the next step. We may not be able to pick a day that suits everyone, but I'll aim to have a few nights over the course of the season so that everyone gets a chance to play!
If you didn't get a chance to join in tonight but still want to we can always see about helping you catch up, so don't feel like you've missed your shot!
Anyway, more info to come soon!
