Bring the hate if that's all you've got...
Given that hate is expected, I hope you at least read my post.
-D3 has major problems on a more regular basis, AND PoE is still getting patched at an exponentially higher rate (I'm not joking on the math regarding the patch rates. I dare you to do your research and then challenge me on this).
-D3 has made its money, where as PoE is still building up to its climax. Yes, D3 will probably make more money overall given its astronomical release figures. Argue as you will, but it is hard to argue this: PoE will continue to be developed at a higher rate than D3 over a much longer period of time.
-PoE has vastly higher build diversity; period.
-PoE has more complex systems not only for character building, skill choices, item selection, crafting, but also for "economic choices" within the game.
-Subjective observation: D3 is very casual. PoE is not.
-PoE releases soon. If you can put 2-bazillion hours into D3... you could at least try to put one hundred hours into PoE before you say "it sucks". If you have played PoE to level 10, and you didn't like it... please don't even respond...
-"Legendaries" in PoE are game changing. Items, in general, affect your build choice much more so than in D3.
-In PoE one can deviate from the cookie cutter builds and have great success.
My preemptive response to the "why are you still posting?" or "D3 has improved" crowd:
I'm sorry guys. I have spent a good deal of time/resources on both games, and PoE absolutely CRUSHES D3 in both atmosphere and player choices. I played D2 up until the release of D3. I was EXTREMELY excited for the release, and I continued to play D3 through all of the problems and changes. I did not quit D3 until after I realized some of the fundamental flaws of the game were not going to go away.
D3 is going to have power creep (look it up if you don't know what it is) very similar to WoW, and this is INTENDED. Get out while you still can...
And my GOD, for people who say "PoE is slow and clunky".... you have not played the game very much. You can get WAY faster attack/clearing speed in PoE than you can in D3 (without cheating).
Again, hate all you want, but until you have tried both.... just don't even respond...
I genuinely wish you all the best. GL
