The game is easy when not playing on Inferno :( Lol
Well... "easy" is pretty elitist to say. Hell is not "easy" but it's easier for some people than others.

Also, Diablo is not a game that is necessarily supposed to be insanely difficult. They added inferno in order to give a challenge to players. I have been having a blast in normal mode getting all my characters through to the end. I'm a pretty good player, but playing casually, I still die a few times along the way. It does ramp up in difficulty. Also, the classes play differently. You might be surprised at the difficulty level changes when picking different classes.

Anyways, you can say "anything under inferno is not challenging enough for me", but it's a little naughty to come here saying that the game is simply "easy". It's kinda... rude and unwarented. I don't think the game is "easy". I was quite suprised at how hard the butcher was when I got to him on my monk at level 13. I leveled up a bit more and got some better gear and sure he was a pushover... but I wouldn't say he is "easy".

I'm a very competant player, but I also don't lie to myself or others on the subject of difficulty. As always, difficulty is relative. I have a friend who says everything is easy all the time. If an encounter takes him 30 minutes to get right and 15 deaths, he will still call it easy and brag. I don't mean to say that you're like this or anything, but know the consequences of your words.

Anyone who says "blah blah easy blah blah" of any game gets an immediate eye roll from me. Everything is ALWAYS relative.

lol I don't need help, I'm in Nightmare. I'd be farther if I had more time. :) But what's the rush really? I'm having a blast!

I say the game is easy because it IS easy up to Inferno mode. Hell mode gives a challenge, and isn't as easy as Normal, but Normal, Nightmare and Hell mode all scale fairly well with item drops. Inferno, on the other hand, either requires an overpowered farming class (which have mostly been nerfed) or a massive amount of gold to buy items those classes have farmed. Hell mode requires a bit more damage mitigation than Nightmare, but the jump isn't nearly as large as the jump from Hell to Inferno. You can survive with ~200 resists in Hell. In Inferno, be ready to try to go from 200 to 900+ and have at least 30k hp and about 50k DPS just to survive in Act I. Act II is a whole 'nother story. Get one shot by the wasps in the chasm at the very beginning.

No one is lying when they say Inferno is a whole 'nother ball game compared to the other difficulties. It really is. When we say everything is easy up to Inferno, we're not saying going up to Inferno isn't difficult. It's somewhat difficult once you jump from Nightmare to Hell. Normal isn't all that difficult as long as the gear you get from drops as you're leveling are scaling well. If all else fails, the equipment you buy from the Auction House for about 10k is good enough. In Inferno, you need about 100 mil to get gear for Inferno. Sure, you might get close to dying or even die in your journey from Normal to Inferno ~100 times. How about dying 50 times trying to kill Butcher in Act I Inferno like me, Jedimindtrixxx, and my Demon Hunter friend did. And she (my Demon Hunter friend) has about 70k DPS.

In all of Normal to Hell, you might day a couple hundred times. In Inferno Act I up to Quest 4 or 5? You might die about that many times. Or maybe a bit more.

Being realistic here? Inferno compared to Normal through Hell, Inferno is way harder. The rest is easy. Hell (no pun intended), comparing Inferno Act I to the rest would make it easy to say Inferno is way harder.

I'm playing Hardcore, and Iwill try Inferno one day. I don't know when, but I'm 60 already.

I guess I'll try Inferno with my friends once I have a thousand resists, 80k DPS and 10k armor. Maybe a 60% dodge or so. Can't tell, really.

uh....
I agree with everything you said except this... seems like a delusional view of the phrase "easy" to me.

When something is 1/100th the difficulty of something else, you would say it's "easier."

Seems to be the correct usage of "easy" to me.
