Diablo® III

D3 vs. PoE

I've been playing PoE lately, and it is pretty much the D2 expansion I've been waiting for, not to mention its completely free to play.

That being said, D3 is not a bad game. It is a very fast paced, kill-frenzy game with beautiful fight mechanics. It just depends on the person. It's kinda like Call of Duty vs Battlefield. Call of Duty is a faster pace shoot em up, while battlefield requires more thought and decision making.

If you are looking for an excellent ARPG reminiscent of D2, go with PoE.
If you are looking for a fast-pace grind game, go with D3

They should change the name to Piece of Excrement. This game is bad. Dated graphics, crappy key binding, garbage pvp, 95% of game play is copied from D2. Items are colored coded exactly like D2. Wonder why it's free to play?

if it's only half as good as d2 it's already 10 times better than d3.

OP - HOW DARE YOU FIND POSITIVES IN BOTH!

You pick a side and fight for it with every last breath. None of this, "I see the merit of both games" crap. That is the rules of the internets.

PoE is still in beta phase as well, much has yet to come. All we have right now is a comparison to a fully expanded D2.

Both games (PoE/D3) still have expansion packs and fixes to undergo

D3 is way more fun than PoE. The random events and elites are done so well in D3 but, skill gems with support gems in linked, colored sockets is pretty cool. Most of the fun in PoE is in the geekery and not in the action.

I have played over 300 hours of D3 versus about 30 hours of POE thus far. I am having way more fun with POE. That is all.

Well there's a positive for d3. Really why even bother coming here to tell us this. I tried poe and it did nothing for me, but I did not go on the poe forums and say that.


+1, I will admit to not giving a very fair trial of PoE, but the lack of inventory space was horrendous. If you clear an area, you have to go back to town 3-4 times in order to "pick" up all of the drops. This to me was a deal breaker.

As someone that loves PoE, This pisses me off. Also the fact that TP's are hard to get in general
