I've already explained why I said what I said, but I'll say it again: I was responding to a prevalent idea that indie studios don't use common business practices, i.e., celebrity endorsements, to gain marketshare.
By the way, not having corporate suits breathing down one's neck doesn't mean that there aren't any deadlines. With the firestorm that has surrounded D3, now is the perfect time for PoE and it'd be unwise for GGG to delay its release for a couple of years as it would give Blizzard time to adjust and fix, and even put out an expansion.
Uhm, the conversation evolved? You know, it happens all the time when people talk, even on forums. The topic shifts from D3 being better than PoE to whether Krip was paid by GGG before or after he started streaming to whether or not GGG needs to actively promote their game just like the big studios do. And if the thread continues to grow, it'll shift some more.
02/13/2013 09:59 PMPosted by BerethosFun fact: Open Beta for PoE was supposed to launch sometime in August or September of 2012. They have the freedom to fudge around with deadlines when needed - a freedom that doesn't happen as often when corporate suits and big money publishers are footing the bill.
02/13/2013 09:59 PMPosted by BerethosThe conversation shifted in that direction because you took it there...by talking about an idea that wasn't part of the conversation. That's what I'm curious about - why insinuate that another poster is being idealistic or naive about something, when what you are implying they are being naive about wasn't a part of the conversation until you implied it? Odd way of making a point
02/10/2013 02:14 AMPosted by FrodoFragins^ lol. until you item hunt or theory craft? Aren't those two of the most important parts of this genre????
Most important is smooth, fun, fast paced combat. There's no excuse for not getting that right before anything else. D3 has that and can easily add theorycrafting and better currencies. POE is unlikely to fix the poor combat. I've yet to see a game this close to release ever make the big fixes to combat. It jsut never happens.
Item hunting is fun if the combat is fun. I loved D3 til the end game. That's why I don't play it. I dislike POE leveling so getting to the item hunting part is a boring grind. I wouldn't theory craft until I had good items for leveling alts. I may quit before that ever happens.
