Thanks for being an insultative poster. I'm glad it took until now for someone to insult me where I paid attention to it, since you know, I never once insulted anyone on this thread.
And PoE is not based on D3, PoE is based on D2, which is a much better game, and made by different people. Had D3 been made by the same people D2 was made by, they wouldnt be sucking it up right now, trying to implement older D2 ideas like Uubers and ladder.
Try not to be too mean when you respond to me, I'd hate for you to get banned for insulting someone who didnt deserve it.
You may not have specifically called out any posters in the way I called you out (I didn't read all of your posts), but you quite blatantly called out Blizzard for being unoriginal, which really surprises me since the game you obviously gave, what, $1000 to to create your own legendary in?, is based on Blizzard's game series - by your own acknowledgement.
And what makes you think I would get banned for saying you're a jerk and trolling everyone? You obviously started an anti-D3 thread on D3's forum, and are trying to threaten me
will get banned for standing up for Blizzard? I'm not doing it overly mean, sir, and honestly if anyone sounds angry it sounds like you're the one who's sore he spent $1000 (or more? someone said $1500) just on an item while Blizzard turns around and decides to offer the same thing for free.
Sucks to be you.
Besides, like Lylirra said, you're really comparing apples and oranges. This is not the same thing at all as the Purchase-your-own-legendary that POE has, this is a one-time deal (maybe more in the future) opportunity for the entire community collectively to learn about and participate in the process of how Blizzard does it. Blizzard did not do this to copy POE, nor is POE even a valid threat to D3. While POE may have a few things going for them, D3 is and will be the top of the genre. Especially with the release of RoS and all the amazing changes coming, POE will continue having it's community of people like you who like to spend $1000 on the game but you will not see POE EVER outdo Blizzard.
As a side note, I am happy that PoE exists and that others out there are trying to create their own games and ideas, because I am a gamer and an artist so I appreciate all games and art for their effort at least even if I personally care for one more than another. I am not bashing PoE at all, I am only suggesting that your argument is completely invalid and only a giant Troll. Even moreso if you're just angry and don't even realize it's logically a troll post.
IF you really want to compare who stole what intellectual property from another, it is obvious PoE got 95% of their ideas from Blizzard (btwn WoW, D2, and D3) and other games, while I'm not sure Blizzard ever took ANY ideas from PoE... If they did, please point it out. Obviously this is NOT one of them. It's not even the same thing at all. And honestly if you want to argue about Original Ideas vs Ideas based on other ideas, you need to realize that at this point in the world, there are very very very few genuinely unique ideas that are not based on anything else or have not been thought up before.
That's why I said you're trolling, because they're not even the same thing and all it really sounds like you're doing is throwing a little temper tantrum and stomping your feet around. The fact that you're posting this in the Diablo forums and not in the PoE forums proves this. You're obviously angry at Blizzard for who knows what and trying to start arguments based on nothing.
Also, Insultative isn't a word.
