POE pretty good except combat.


That's a bad sign for game that is about combat. I suppose if you veil that all behind stats and shinnies it's better for some.
PoE feels like a free to play game.

Its trash.


yeah because all f2p games are trash.
Dont let the LoL and Dota community read that.

I play LoL. Used to play DotA. It's 100% true. I don't mind though. I like contributing to the trash :P

It's very cathartic.

In all seriousness though, few free to play games have quality comparable to AAA titles (yes I'm calling Diablo 3 AAA despite the flaws)

The only one I can think of that is really high quality is Planetside 2.

Just started and tried out, POE pretty good except combat. IT has everything else d3 dont have


Well that's one way to make a person lose all interest in a game based around killing stuff.

How is that? PoE has a very similar combat style to Diablo 2. And Diablo 2 owns Diablo 3 even with D3's pretty explosions and !@#$ flying around.
POE looks like they had the right idea, but man i just can't stand the the 1990's graphics. Maybe this will get these guys a job where they can make a proper game. I know its free but i would rather gave them my 70 bucks and and played a game that reminded me of Diablo 2 without looking like it was made the same year. Everything about the gameplay is better, no set route, aka lots of diversity in builds, but i must of have gotten spoiled in my old age because i can't stand look at the screen for more than 10 seconds without getting a headache. P.s. I know this is way off topic.

Diablo 2 combat is pretty bad. After playing D2 for years I can't go back to it.

True that. But that's the only thing that Diablo 3 improved on. Everything else it failed miserably.

LoL doesn't feel like a trashy F2P game, it feels more like a $20 game like torchlight 2. Can't comment on Dota because the only dota I ever played was in Warcraft 3.

Servers just crashed :)
happens^^

/edit: and back up...
My download has 1 percent left, and I can see what all the fuss is about. HA. But seriously, I won't be leaving this game. I enjoy playing Diablo too much. But its nice to try something new once in a while, breaks up the play.
Uh... I don't think PoE released... Isn't it just in open beta now?

Just open beta, stress test this weekend.
Diablo 3 = Millions to spend on servers and years of prep time, still failed.

PoE = Made with donations from eager players and made in a tenth of the time... SO I guess you could compare them huh?


I doubt you have a clue what it takes to maintain a server.
Especially one designed for "millions" of people.


I was under the impression that it was Blizzard's job to know what it takes to maintain a server when they've been in business for so long...

Business should be the operative word there. They are a business. They know that after the initial surge people will leave.

So what exactly is the business sense in spending more money on servers that will become pointless within 3 months? It's just wasted money.

I don't agree with that philosophy but it is something a big business would do.
This so funny.
Servers crashed... but are being resolved.

Once again.. not a good sign for the game.
