red doors on red walls, I straight up missed the next level of the dungeon because of it. Had to full clear that level to figure out I had missed it.

"I am a little bit tired, so give me a little bit of a break"

When a content creator with his character & quality of personality has to make that comment - it means there are just simply terrible people out there who will nitpick even the nicest of people.

DBrunski, you're a longstanding voice in the D2 community. Thank you for the time/effort you pour into this for us.

Personally, the speed of the waypoints that you showed looks like what I'm used to in D2. I'd have 0 complaints if that's how it ends up being.
Tony Wyzen
Tony Wyzen:
This game makes me so sad for what Warcraft III reforged should’ve been, but it’s an AMAZING remaster. They somehow made the game feel modern, while keeping it entirely D2. That speaks a lot to just how good D2 really was.
Seth Morrison
Seth Morrison:
I noticed ghost monster pathing is bugged, the get stuck on open Graves and barrels rather then float over them.
Gary White
Gary White:
If you are in contact with the devs during this process I think an extremely important question is where will the servers be located, I know you mention over 100ms in Canada, that is playable. The 330ms in Australia is not playable because you have no chance of picking up an item before anyone else. If you have the chance, please please please ask this question as it affects thousands of people and will be the difference between asking for a refund or not. Thank you and keep up the great videos!

I am so jealous of the controller hotbars, I hope we get an option for a similar set up for m/kb. I do not like how inventory management or anything I would want to do in town feels with a controller, but combat imo is so much better when one press = 1 skill.
Jaxom Moy
Jaxom Moy:
We all know how this Resurrected is layered on top of the original engine, hence the AI path when at Arcane Sanctuary, my druid pets and even the follower got stuck so often.. i had to use TP to move them along.. Maggots Lair not so bad. was hoping Vicarious Vision would improve it. just a hope...
Thalidomide
Thalidomide:
Seeing Duriel in HD is giving me major PTSDs.
Nok
Nok:
You hit most of the things I noticed. Here are some I found:
1. You can no longer move items in the stash, by having an item picked up, and placing it on another to swamp places. So, I have a sword in my inventory, I pick it up and move it on top of a chest armor in my stash, it doesn't do anything. Where before, it would swap places. Its pretty annoying. It still works in the inventory, but not the stash for some reason.
2. Cain does not identify items while they are in the cube.
3. Cain now says "Good Morning" instead of "Good Day"

Been playing a barb out of nostalgia and I'm getting so many memories of the early 00s flooding back I'm glad they did this
Jonathan Straka
Jonathan Straka:
The game is fantastic. I could cry it's so good.
Byron Delgado
Byron Delgado:
I like the new quality of life feature of always being able to see the items on the ground. I personally won’t use it but I’m sure the current gamer generation is used to things like that. It’s good they offer options of things that do not alter the original experience of the game.
TopSecret
TopSecret:
I LOVE the addition of the "LOOT ALWAYS SHOWING" feature, i got so much used to it while in PD2 so that i just hit the hotkey take all the loot i need, and then i CAN CHOOSE if i want it to remain that it still shows all the loot on the ground or not (which can be REALLY useful in helping not to miss some good loot while farming!) it basically adds one of the functions of the "loot filter" into the game!
Ivan Burda
Ivan Burda:
7:45 - Loading when going through a portal takes basically an eye-wink: "I think that is acceptable." - Are we really so spoiled these days to call this just acceptable? In 2000 on my Pentium 166 MHz playing the original Diablo 2, it took easily 30 seconds and still was quite alright.

I’m forcing myself to not play the beta. I just wanna dive in head first to the official release in September. I’m talking head first into a 3ft swimming pool off a diving board without any water.

We can see how good this remake is from the critics. We are picking on tiny minor things, the devs have done a great job!
John Walsh
John Walsh:
I hope this remaster leads to even more recognition and success for you. I'm a very casual gamer, nothing hardcore with D2 but I still love your channel. I'm sure many other casual or curious gamers will find your channel and really appreciate your content and guidance
Skela
Skela:
I think we can all agree though, the remake is awesome and they've done really well re creating the game.

Jeff Deaf:
cheers dbrunski for keeping us updating with D2R! thanks to you (and others) this remaster is going to be what the Community really wanted. you are the voice of the people!!!!! look forward to seeing you in the first ladder if i can find a PC capable of running it
Adam Borg
Adam Borg:
I'm glad that resurrected was released. You do the best job. Debrunski is the go to guy for Diablo 2 on YouTube
Alexander Cornelis
Alexander Cornelis:
Thanks for your views Dbrunski. The servers in Europe were even worse - literally unplayable after the 1st hour or so. With regards to things to fix; there is so much missed potential in the Main Menu and lobby. They are not intuitive and inviting friends to games, creating games and even chatting with friends is all far from optimized. For example: The main menu has 2 buttons; lobby and play. Press play and you end up creating a new game with system generated name. That doesn't make sense. As for the lobby, chat is impossible since it notifies with every person joining our leaving the lobby - an endless stream of notifications. Moreover these notifications also continued for me when in game - for people I do not know and weren't in my game. And why is it not possible to chat with friends in the main menu, lobby and in game? I can only access the friend list in a game and then can only join them not chat.... Really so many small things that need improvement....

Time has never passed slower than waiting for D2 Resurrected 🥺🤗. Love the anticipation though 🤩🙌🏼.
Snarfsnarfff
Snarfsnarfff:
Can you please suggest to blizzard to change the stash tabs from 3 shared, 1 personal to 3 personal, 1 shared. It would make more sense because you only need 1 shared tab to transfer gear where as you need a ton of room on mules to complete the "Holy Grail". Like if you agree so Dbrunski can see and maybe mention it to the devs. Thanks
Zooka
Zooka:
Great feedback! Please touch on controller as well. There are currently quite a few little issues with how they work, mainly the lack of accurate targeting.

Loading times are fine and I kinda love that short "opening of the gates" loading screen, and the fissure "bug" looks kinda good actually.
Anyways, good content as always...thanks man!
ThriftyKitten
ThriftyKitten:
honestly the exit doors on the map isnt really minor in my opinion. i remember spending so long in act 5 cave maps trying to find the exit and realizing i passed over it a couple times. doesnt help that i'm color blind and everything tends to blend together. I'd call this an important issue that should be customizable
V
V:
Also, please make the catacombs stairs a little brighter in the minimap, it should contrast more. Not a big deal but shouldn't be hard to beef it up some.
lbdeuce
lbdeuce:
You’re very polite. The fissure big for instance is a well north of nitpicky. Can’t wait to see you content

Played a bowazon, I felt pretty significant differences from old d2 in terms of responsiveness when ktinig mobs. The delay when turning and shooting is way more delayed than before.
Calen Hoffman
Calen Hoffman:
It's so insanely fun! I noticed volcano has a visual bug when you cast it. Like a bright orange/red colored flare on the boulders. I'm sure it will be fixed.

Great vid dbrunski!

just wanted to say i'm glad for you they made a D2 remaster. it will give you a proper push on youtube and twitch!
Don Diabolic

Im excited for this as every year I come back for a bit of D2 but still feels like a cash grab by Actiblizzard. I really dont like giving them money any more.
Sly
Sly:
other than trading, playing explicitly with friends and pvp, I never understood the point of D2 multiplayer; without instanced loot, why risk losing loot to other players?
A U
A U:
Thanks for sharing your thoughts Dbrunski! I just finished Act II playing Paladin! And oh man! D2R is just a delight! BUT performance could use heaps of improvement. Dropped framerates are very noticeable, the latency, and lag altogether can be very disorienting. At one point it started to slowdown so much that I had to cap the fps in the Nvidia control panel. There's also rubber-banding all over the place. Plus, despite using a G-sync monitor, if you disable v-sync, there's a noticeable tearing. It even managed to crash/restart my whole system one time. But to be fair, I'm running everything on the highest settings at 4K, but I think this game shouldn't be crippling a beefy system like a 5950x + 3090. I can only imagine the experience wouldn't be so good for devices with lower specs even if you reduce the settings.

As for the visuals, my only complain is visibility of Holy Freeze, unless you look very closely, it's not clear which monsters are affected by it. The aura itself is an improvement from alpha, but it still doesn't look as "chilly" as the original.

But overall, so far, this beta version is looking good! I hope they work on optimisations. I played this a lot during the day like the most of us, and I bet the newcomers would love the game we grew up with, provided all the kinks are ironed out by launch!
Markus Kistner
Markus Kistner:
Hey Dbrunksi, i played like ~15 hours of it and i think the "entrace" graphics on the Map in Act 2 are really bad. Thats the only thing i had to mention. Some Problems with Europe servers on Friday - but the loading time ingame was good and mostly the bnet time too. So hyped for the launch!
Hefe
Hefe:
$55 CAD for a game that's 21 years old I expect nothing but perfection in the remake. Blizzard is clearly shitting the bed on anything new that they make, so they better do damn well with this all time favorite.
Jack Scheckla
Jack Scheckla:
Love your stuff bro!!! Been following you for a long time and I gotta say as a d2 vet I am so happy with how they did the remastered!!! And I even tried it on Xbox instead of my pic. It’s awesome and can’t wait for 1 month to go by!! Keep up the great vids man!
Jared Crawford
Jared Crawford:
I haven't been following the bug fixes too closely, has there been any talk of fixing the fend bug with the Amazon? It would be cool to see the Spear skill tree actuall be semi viable this time around.

This brings back so much memories especially the Baal runs love this content
Cynica Tube
Cynica Tube:
Always enjoy your content Dbrunski. I would of loved a more thorough demo of the join/create lobby feature as this wasn't something they had shown in the last demo, otherwise great highlights.
**Side note: They need to replicate the functionality of project d2's filter on joining games, auto new game creation #+1, and auto in game party toggle without question. Those in addition to the shared stash among other things will give this some nice deserved polish. - thank you for reading!
Lomenian
Lomenian:
Played with controller on PC the beta today. Felt great and relaxing. Time passed so freakin fast didnt think i would enjoy after hundreds of hours played
3Nightbreeze
3Nightbreeze:
One thing I'd like to add to the "animations" section: They should definitely consider changing the paladin's smite animation to resemble the original one. Right now the smite animation in d2r is still a weak-looking upwards "slap", whereas in og d2 it is a powerful top-down shield hit. Might seem minor, but it really bugs me, as it stands I will not create a smiter with the current animation - one of my favorite builds in d2.
Ashley El Dorado
Ashley El Dorado:
Playing the Beta feels the same as D2 with updated graphics. The only differences I can see is the auto gold pickup and shared stash.
Raii Angelo Dar
Raii Angelo Dar:
Hey DB! I'm a huge fan of yours from the PH. I just wanna know your thoughts about the current AI of the mercenaries and do you think that they would (or should) improve their AI?
Tj Legend
Tj Legend:
I played it on the ps5 today. And it’s very different layout for the UI for game lobby and everything. It’s much slower to identify this with tombs of identity. It’s much slower buying and selling and doing all inventory stuff.

The game handles well for the most part. But you’ll be at a huge disadvantage playing on console as you can’t click where to teleport as the game just teleports you only half way across the screen in the direction you’re facing.

While using any melee attack with X. It is also the interaction Button and at times you’ll pick up a ton of useless crap while trying to attack as it picks anything up you’re near when clicking X which is horrible when being a melee character and surrounded by enemies and you kill a couple and they drop arrrows or bolts or crap items and you pick them up all the sudden rather then attack. Then once picked up the game has you attack again. This makes it frustrating as I spent a lot of time having to open my inventory and drop everything.

Since this is a shared loot game and as mentioned before you have to be right near item and be looking at the right one (very very hard to pick out a single item you want on the ground if it’s surrounded by a bunch of other items) meaning on battlenet when in games with others or doing Baal runs to level or MF runs to find gear. PC players who point and click will have a huge advantage in picking up all desired loot. Your inventory will fill up so fast with useless stuff if you’re just clicking X in a rush.

The graphics are amazing. The game feels like Diablo 2 still which is awesome. But on console it’s definitely going to take some getting used to. While hoping devs somehow bridge the gap between picking up gear on Pc and console. I love D2. Been playing it 20yrs. Still love it. Preordered D2R the second I could on ps5 as my Pc is pretty much shot and needs replacing. Lol 😂

Also I can’t see any quick shortcuts to use potions in your inventory quick or quickly identify things without holding X for a couple seconds on the tomb of identify first then clicking the item. Nor a quick way to purchase things. Or give your merc a potion (which is very needed in higher level runs) also no shortcuts really if any kind on console to even load up your potions on your belt if empty and having them in your inventory.

Hope this helps those on console have a heads up that it will take some adjustment time to really settle in and enjoy it on console.

Ps DBrun keep up the amazing Diablo content 👍🏻

Bernardo Espindola
Bernardo Espindola:
So far looks great.. i had some issues with the old door bug, when youre close to it but in a position that the door just WONT open...
And the old bug with soorc fireballs when you hit enemies, see the animation but no damage is done....that really sucks...
Chaz Chartrand-Morin
Chaz Chartrand-Morin:
Game starting to look pretty good. Still not going to preorder. Still hoping this game is a success because its the last blizzard game I predict I will play and I want something that can beat the test of time.

I like that you can control the map opacity so I have it on really low.

Im not very far, but my first time. I think its very very good so far they did a fantastic job. I am very very happy to see how good this is vs the warcraft 3 remaster. I just have major lag/gpu issues and the requirements for this game vs original D2 are night and day. You need a beast computer to play this at good frames

Those loading time between WP are more than fine! Wish you'd show between acts though

The auto pickup gold is a charm. I never have the habit of picking it up in classic

Tried not to as well and use the gold auto pickup feature. 3 Hours later i found out that i have 50000 gold

My load times were instant unless I was traveling between acts. Wish they would have let us try hardcore on this beta.
Ducky Duck
Ducky Duck:
Never knew you from Ontario Canada, but me too dude! I avg 109 - 150ms as well but on D3 I avg 38 - 59ms so i'm hoping these are just beta servers.
Ken Harrington
Ken Harrington:
I would like to see a pre-configured D3 keyboard bindings., would make transitioning back and forth easier. ..T= town portal, Z= zoom, J = quests, 1,2,3,4,etc. for skills. Q,W,E,R = BELT, thoughts?
Alfie Frost

I love the combat but I find it very laggy but it is just a beta. Can't wait to see the full game next month.

That loading time is honestly the Best you could ever get. Dam I never seen it be that fast besides playing old diablo
Scott Kay
Scott Kay:
3:55 - Hard agree. The dungeon stairs in Act II were almost impossible to see. But what a good place we're in when THIS is what we're complaining about, right?
James Starling

Mercs going invisible was a reoccurring one for me on PS5.
Jorge Diogo
Jorge Diogo:
Congrats on all your videos, you always do a great work.
Playing in a i7-7700hq with a GTX1050 4gb and 16gb ram is not pleasant.
The best FPS I get is 30-40 in lower settings and sometimes drop to 20’s.
Very high settings lower FPS to mid 20’s.
Loading screens take 5-8 seconds.
The game is very visual appealing but if the FPS is not addressed, the experience is not ideal.
James Grego

hah that door blending in with the wall in act 2 tombs threw me off, had me really second guessing if there was a halls of the dead level 3...
Zendefta

My main complaint is that we do have servers over here in Brazil but I was playing with 250ms. Other than that and some small visual bugs/glitches, the game is amazingly beautiful and it performs really well! Can't wait for the full release 💙

IT IS FREAKIN AMAZING! LOOKS SO SO SO GOOD ON MY PS5! I HAVENT FELT ANY DUALSENSE FEATURES AND THEY PROMISED THOSE. THATS THE ONLY THING
Brandon L
Brandon L:
Hey Dbrunski - I'm still not clear on how multiplayer will work between platforms. Will someone on a Console be able to join and play with PC players? I would love to be able and use my Nintendo Switch (travel for work so that would be ideal); but only if all players will be on the same global server. Love your content!

Volcano certainly isn't useless! Take it from a fire druid main, (PvP and pvm) It has phy damage and is good for stationary enemies.
Mainly, it is great in PvP vs sorcs with high fcr. Puts 'em in fhr lock/block animation.

DB always forgets about the PvP ;)

Damn this remake is so good that the inconveniences are so menial!!
Generic Name

I'm concerned that we wont be able to see other players characters in the lobby. I know the bottom spot is there so I have hope but still worried. I think that always made the game feel more alive.
Jonathan West
Jonathan West:
One thing I found unclear on the maps was in act II crypt areas. Like claw viper temple levels. It was very difficult to see where the way to another level was on the map. The walls are shown in red and the stairs up /down are a dark pink. Basically blend right into each other. Even at no transparency its not very clear.
xRosierrox
xRosierrox:
I would like to see two little but rather significant improvements:
- A permanent choice between modern and legacy version in the settings. Those who prefer Diablo II how it used to be must switch every time after exiting or restarting the game.
- Old HUD is absent from the legacy version in early beta, at least on console.
Not much else to ask for. Best game of all-time. Thank you.

I found it comical to zoom in with f and then view the old graphics with g.
Jose Rivera
Jose Rivera:
the halls of the dead I had to reload to get the level 2 access because it didn't have a exit, and also they have to make the map entrance and exits visible, since gold it's auto looted, same should the items, runes, rare, unique, magic or plain toggle.
Fab Col
Fab Col:
They definite need to change the color of the exit on the map, it blends in way to much with the walls, 3 times I missed the exit because I didn’t see it. It needs to stand out a bit more.
Noticed also when doing transactions with vendor it would get real laggy when moving gear to sell or buy.
And I’m sure they will fix where money keeps disappearing from your stash.
Bummer couldn’t play with my friend because he was getting that error code that some think it’s related to minimum requirements (windows version, etc)
Overall it’s an awesome experience for beta.
Atanas Tsvetkov
Atanas Tsvetkov:
In catacombs of act 1 noticed the animation for tainted demon when shooting their lighting ball its very pixilated as if I am playing arcade game. With all the surroundings and the athmosphere just doest add up. So I was wondering, if it is just me or other ppl find that specific animation weird.
Justin Casual Gaming
Justin Casual Gaming:
I was playing Druid, and i ran into a bug where if i click on the HUD Skill icon to change a skill or keybind a skill on the bottom right my game would immediately crash. So i was unable to use any new skills after lv6. I'm a really big fan of D2 but i gotta be honest... this doesn't feel ready for release... and after my experience w/ this beta im kinda concerned why we haven't seen act 3-5 playable. I very badly want this to be a home run, i love this game.
Baby Jakes
Baby Jakes:
I feel the lighting (in terms of visibility, especially in dungeons) is very bad. Light radius means nothing when you just see everything on screen. Kinda spoils the dark and creepy mood D2 should be giving off.
Aleksander Fimreite
Aleksander Fimreite:
I also participated in the public beta. I had hopes for a single quality of life improvement, and I didn't get it.
So I decided early that I was not going to play all that far. As tbh, the game is so tedious for me to play now without it that it's just more discomfort than its worth.
I love the game, but I was really hoping to see a more modern "quick cast" (diablo 3 style) hotkey system. Where the key activates it, not the mouse!
Two presses (one on each hand for multiple skills) to cast skills turns into such a bad hand-to-hand coordination failure in my head.
It would be much appriciated if we could cut that down to just the key! (Toggleable option, of course)
Svupperman
Svupperman:
I also had a crash after playing about half an hour. When I got back in, my progress wasen't saved and I just lost everything I had done in that time. THAT is a major problem, that can't happen at launch!
M T
M T:
I’ve never had any problems discerning the walls in act 2. That red needs toned down
Krišjānis Kurpnieks
Krišjānis Kurpnieks:
From the looks of it load times are very fast. You have much heavier graphics and assets that need to be loaded, ofc its a touch slower - its not the old game that can be run on a potato.

i really hope they allow the controller ui for MaK , that would be so good

Bui Minh Tri:
Hey Dbrunski, I thought the Duriel part was not a bug. I saw that player drink 5 thawing potion before getting fight with Duriel. That's pretty much explained and also a tip I normally use. Have a nice day!
vonuberoydawg
vonuberoydawg:
Looked around a bit but haven't seen an answer, maybe you (dbrunski or others) can help. Did they fix the displayed damage and other character screen issues that show incorrect values? Examples: inferno, smite, blade fury etc? Especially with the updated advanced stats?
