Yes, people are still playing because the game is about problem solving. (how to push the highest rift with your poor equip and non existent team.) . I experiment various set items as well and only take a pinch of salt from the guides because there is a chance that i might discover a killing machine set. For every season, there are different season buffs. (must figure out how to work that in your favor) However, most quit due to real life issues or have found a better game.

there is something consistent about multiplayer games. Let's say the max size per game is 4 players. This 4 players will very soon be limited to only the best. Not so good players will find it hard to enter their game. This is for players VS environment.

As for games with players VS players ..... discrimination will be much more. All these contribute to players moving to single player games or non competitive ones.

Use your geared Barbarian to run Nephalem and Greater Rifts.

Get the Crusader to gamble the accumulated Blood Shards on Kadala.

Once you get at least a 4-piece (only 3 Set items needed, if you are using the Ring of Royal Grandeur) bonus of the Set you want to use, you may choose to switch to playing the Crusader to grind for his items directly.
Sorry back after so long. Ended up switching the barbarian over to Zodiac Rend build and got an immediate boost in power haha. Did what you advised and used gambling to fully gear up a DH for Natalya Rapidfire and UE Multishot, and a Crusader for Valor Heavens Fury but end up still mainly play my barbarian. Just hit 800 paragon.

It's getting boring to just endlessly farm rifts solo though and hope for ancient items to drop to upgrade those last few pieces of gear.

I cannot take the heartache of dying in Hardcore mode, maaaannn... Have died many times due to lag spikes or keyboard presses not registering because the chat window was active.

Congratulations! I find gearing up & the "early struggles" the most fun bits of the game.

Yeah. I thought I'd be playing regularly till the season ends. However, got hooked on Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now Diablo 3 is in cold storage!

I agree that diablo 3 is in cold storage from now to season end. China and korean players mostly MIA already. I augmented my legendary gems into my gear and did a final push for solo greater rift. Hope i can hang on to my ranking.

Hi, For Demon hunter there is a new set item in season 21. Current season has 2 weeks left. Majority of the posts here seem to conclude that most are hardcore players and are in US server. Just fyi.

Most here asking for other hardcore kakis to play is because this pool of players is way smaller than the mainstream softcore players.

You can play rather recklessly on softcore, since death is dirt cheap. Loss is just in gold, where hardcore death is permanent loss of char and full set of equipped gears.

With a bigger pool of softcore players around, the levelling and gearing process can be shortcut by leeching off other players. Then their interest will die off quickly, since softcore players will get bored of this too easy to play process.

Yes, you can do that for hardcore as well, but you need to have players from this small pool, willing to let you leech off.

I tried the Asia server and I noticed that the player numbers fall much faster than on Europe and Americas. One month from start of season, hardly anyone is on compared to the latter 2 realms. Why is that so?

This game is at least 8 years old and many of the existing players just play for 3 weeks. Day 1 their paragon level is already 800 plus. By week 3, these pros can pump to at least 2k paragon. By then, it is no longer fun. By week 6, I witnessed these pros is at least 3k paragon. 3k is like very common and probably no one has the time left to go 4k.
