Blizzards syn på rushing

forumkoll Bashiok gav sig in i en diskussion om rushing och gav sin syn på saken. Rushing innebär i korta drag att man hoppar över delar av handlingen i spelet för att öka i level snabbt som möjligt (antingen mha buggar, höglevlade kompisar eller bra föremål som man fört över från andra karaktärer)

For most people there are two forms of ”rushing”. One is essentially playing on bugs to skip content that isn’t intended to be skip-able. The other is either using your previously acquired wealth to twink a new character, and/or have a high level character help run you through the content.

Rushing through use of unintended mechanics or bugs to skip content is not something we’ll support, of course, and ideally we’ll fix any such issues should they crop up.

Outfitting a new character with better items and having a friend with a high level character rush you through content, we’re totally fine with. While, yes, we could be sentimental and hope that you’re really interesting in experiencing the content at the pace and balance we worked hard to achieve, having a friend rush you through content is a positive social experience.

Having them help you hit a level where you’re both able to tackle content that’s relevant creates a positive social experience. Regardless of the intended pace, it’s co-operative play, and that’s not bad.
