What Happened?
I used to love the Co-op aspect of this game, a group of people coming together, all building and fighting off the enemy. Now every game I join is "Host AFK up/rep". Where did the gameplay go? Is everyone just obsessed with levelling as quick as possible?

I miss being able to join a random game and not get kicked because I actually want to take part instead of just watch. Its meant to be a co-op game, not one person build everything and then just read a book while things die.

I even hosted my own game, and told everyone they were free to build, but no-one did, they stood there, waiting for me to build, one person even ran round and collected the mana then dropped it at my feet. As I'm not one of these characters with auras that cover the whole map, we didn't last very long and everyone left.

I hope DD2 will bring back the fun part of the game.

It is just a loot simulator now. Either that or people just build so well that all you need to do is have teams repair stuff. Guides and what not have made building effectively much easier.

The game went downhill after the nightmare update.

Not surprising.
Most have either bad building gear or lack skill/experience in doing it.
Then add those that are fishing for the +30% bonus from not building.
And those so scared of getting kicked for 'building wrongly' that they just dont and make up excuses for it if you ask them.
And the lazy/freeriders, who just want put in as little effort as they can get away with.

I admit, I don't like to build in other peoples games anymore. Gotten kicked for it(even times when my stats was better then the host) so I almost never build and play a dps character in co-op. I just like to run around and kill things with my barb and up/rep. I will use a builder if the host really needs my help my builders are just medicore though 3-4k stats so normally the hosts doesn't need my help anyways.

I kinda miss the old days in this game too. When it wasn't a grindfest/gearfest when you just played to play.

private games with friends for the win.
honestly this game is a lot of fun, you just have to ignore the min maxer's and acheivement junkies.

at least when it's not crashing left and right.
