    Datamine Journal #1 - Diablo 3 Deathmatch and Future patches


    Here are some interesting finds I managed to pick up from Diablo 3 files. Here you will find information about the ditched
    PvP mode for Diablo 3 (Deathmatch) and some very uncertain future patch predictions supported by these datamines.

    Why would you be interested in this? There is a high chance Blizzard will reintroduce some (or most) of their ideas in
    some other concept of matchmaking, this kind of behavior has been noted for years in the scene and is to be expected
    here as well. Rumors at the end of the thread are there just to bring out discussion, they are not just very improbable but
    also potentially very old.

    Sources are listed under the corresponding *.stl filenames. STL is short for Stringlist which in other words means lines
    of text that are displayed (or meant to be displayed) in-game. You can view the filetype documentation here.

    Matchmaking summary
    - This is how it would have been -

    -You can enter matchmaking with a predefined team or solo
    -PvP statistics and history are visible on your profile main screen
    -Party leader can queue an entire (4v4) team for matchmaking
    -There is a delay when queuing for another match
    -Achievements and banner decorations can be achieved from matchmaking
    -Each player will be given accolades based on their matches
    -As an example, here are some of them:
    • Unstoppable - Longest Kill Streak
    • Archon Master - X kills with Archon active
    • Wingman - Most assists
    • The Feared - Most kills
    • Juggernaut - Fewest deaths
    • Steamroller - Most damage done
    • Punchbag - Most damage taken
    • Medic - Most healing done
    • Teleporter - Most teleports
    • Avenger - X avenger kills before dying
    • Streaker - Longest kill streak

    -There are also literally dozens of class-specific accolades, some of which being:
    • A little longer - Longest life! X seconds (Wizard)
    • Time Traveler - Cast slow X times (Wizard)
    • Missile Launcher - X damage with Magic Missile (Wizard)
    • Frantic - X damage with Frenzy (Barbarian)
    • Iron Foot - Cast ground stomp X times (Barbarian)
    • Imposing presence - Killed X enemies with Wrath of the Berserker active (Barbarian)
    • Hazard Maker - Cast caltrops X times (Demon Hunter)
    • Big appetite - X damage with Hungering Arrow (Demon Hunter)
    • Acrobat - Cast Vault X times (Demon Hunter)
    • Eye of the Storm - X damage with Cycloning Strike (Monk)
    • Thousand Foot First - X damage with Deadly Reach (Monk)
    • Can't Touch This - Cast Inner Sanctuary X times (Monk)
    • Voodoo Master - Cast Big Bad Voodoo X times (Witch Doctor)
    • Undertaker - X damage with Grasp of the Dead (Witch Doctor)
    • Thriller - X damage with Wall of the Zombies (Witch Doctor)

    -When playing a match:
    • There is a minimap for quickly locating friendly players
    • Deaths in matchmaking cause no durability loss
    • Potions do not consume when used
    • Hardcore character death is not permanent
    • You can either:
      1. Get a player kill
      2. Assist in player kill
      3. Help in a player kill

    -Rewards for winning matches:
    • PvP Tokens
    • Gold
    • Experience

    -PvP Tokens can accordingly be redeemed for
    • (Timed) boosts in Magic and Gold Find
    • Random items

    -PvP Tokens are redeemed by Gryffith the Warmaster at New Tristram's Slaughtered Calf Inn

    Future patches

    Please note: This information is not even close to 100% certain, believe what you want!
    There is a high chance of this information being old or false in the name of sudden changes, rejection
    and/or delaying.


    Summary
    -Looks like there will be a benefit in form of a buff for those who play multiplayer. (most certain one)
    -Blizzard seems to be working on a new lobby.
    -There will be titles rewarded for completing acts/other game objectives
    -Meeting room
    -Titles for different difficulties
    -Local (LAN) games
    -Vial of Resurrection
    (-Matchmaking servers)
    -Reserved names (ladder?)
    -Rune enchancements
    -Bind on equip
    -PvP - Free For All

    Bonus

    Looks like players purchasing Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm will be rewarded (at least) with an achievement
    It also looks like players with old sets like Natalya's Wrath will be rewarded with an achievement. Blizzard trying to create
    collector's items to preserve their value of the Diablo 3 itempool? Clever.

    These ones I found to be old and not likely implemented. They have been on the files forever.
    Multiplayer buff and achievements for old itemsets/HoS should hold true, however.

    I lol'd when I dug around the beta files and saw they were going to try and balance teams by offering stat buffs. That always works so well in games.
