But, if its anything like prior Diablos, quitting after town portaling or using a waypoint = enemies respawn. Also, TP scrolls are a kinda pricey ingame commodity in the early game. Sure, they become cheap as chips later, but that early part is gonna be nasty. Again, its a waste of game resources for something that should be costless.Billick wrote:Well, you can't pause, but you can use a town portal, which is essentially the same thing. Also, your progress gets saved through regular checkpoints, so even if you quit the game in the middle of something, you won't lose much.
And, as Daniel says, there are many situations which it may be neccessary for you to provide your instant attention. This is normally doable with a simple tap of ESCAPE in nearly every other game FOR A GOOD REASON.
However, I retract my comment about Origin. For some reason I got it into my head that Blizzard was owned by EA. Because, hey, it feels like everything is owned by EA these days.
Even if ALT-TAB does pause, the problem is if the game doesn't negotiate with the server for X amount of time, it disconnects and ends your game. By the sounds of it, the monsters and drops are actually generated by the server rather than your machine... (making it sound remarkably like an MMO)
