I Just scrolled throught some discussions on Discord and someone said that there was more lvl 50 in HC than in SC Normal.
I also remember seeing a lot of people not familiar with the game being confused about the fact that there’s 8 different difficulty levels in the game (HC normal, HC normal nightmare, HC elite normal, HC elite nightmare and the same goes for SC).
Even if you’re used to the traditionnal difficulty of hack n slashes where you start over after the last boss for one or more playthrough, the naming is weird.
I’m not sure devs have the ability to remove normal mode as a choice when you create a new character, but i was wondering if it would be worth it.
Plenty of people that will discover the game will soon realize they are in normal when the vast majority of players are in Elite. They then have no other choice than being “stuck” on a low population difficulty or to reroll in Elite which for some person that don’t have a lot of free time might be discouraging.
I really don’t think Elite represents an impossible challenge for anyone with a brain cell either. I might be wrong as i nearly never played in normal. I feel the so called Elite mode is well balanced enough for it to be the standard without having to make a difference and split the overall small playerbase between 2 unconnected difficulties.
At least maybe it would be possible to explain at the character creation screen that both Normal and Elite are separated when it comes to teaming and AH ?
