Who wouldn't enjoy the combat in this game? It's an action game.
On the subject of PoE.
Their claim to a passive skill tree with 1350 skills is somewhat misleading. Sure, there are 1350 nodes spread out as a graph. But a number of nodes along a given branch are just "more of the same" i.e. +10 to Intelligence, + 10 to Intelligence, +10 to Intelligence...Makes for a great looking "web" but if you collapsed them to a single button with a little number in the corner you'd have the +stat button from D2.
That was actually very well-put when working off the assumption that you can't just mow down every mob without thinking twice about what affixes they have or don't have. =)
I think that personally I enjoy the affix system of D3 more, but I do want there to be some new head-scratchers that really make people think added in eventually.
I just don't get this. You chose skills/runes/passive/follower skills. That right there debunks your assertion, even assuming that you NEVER change any of those things (which is the end result of a skill tree). But I'm sure you do tweak your choices now and then. I know I do. Constantly. It's fun.
lol u idiot. 3m is the number blizzard said at GDC.
Please show me a source that shows more than 25% of players played D1 and D2 after one year.
And finally, D3 is not a failure, and youre delusional if you think so. You're just like those people who troll apple iphone forums going on and on about how iphone is a failure, it sux, blah blah.
The reality is that you and a small group of haters think it sux, but most of the people who bought it think its great.
If you are going to ask for a source at least back up your claims. Sales do not equate to quality. Just because you log in to play does not mean the player thinks the game is great either. The developers who have admitted this game has some problems must be part of that 'small group of haters'.

When diabloprogess.com has auto update then I will believe it to be a reliable guide. But we know it does not have that. Just look me up on that website and you will see it says I have not played in 2 months. But when you look for 4 level 60's on the profile you will see only one. Because the other characters I deleted and rerolled.
Also my barbarian build at that time was my Indiana Jones build that I was trying out. I went sword and board to get the extra MF. But now I am dual wield with a much higher dps. Also I have different gear weapons as well.
I say that the buy one get one synergy for free is a bad game design. Because it requires no thought or math skills to pick the best skills to max out. You will know in a glance which skills to max out.
Also it is not true synergy in my book. It is saying here is a dps or a defense boost. So since you put points into skill x it will give skill y an increase in defense, time in seconds or dps, etc...
Where as true synergy is what D3 has right now where one skill works off of another. You can build a DH where you can have a powerful dps skills. Then the rest will give you some good defenses and help with keeping your resources near full. The skills you would use for resource management along with a pickup radius like the build I will link below shows this to be true.
The above shows true synergy.
Take other games you might have a class that is a ranger type class. He fires a tar arrow that slows down the mobs. Then a mage fires a fireball into the tar patch igniting it. Now the mob cannot escape until the fire destroys them. That is synergy, far better then buy one skill and here we are giving you a dps boost to one of your skills.
Finally I say that I have seen threads in the thousands on the D2 forums where players have complained that the synergies of 1.10 killed a lot of builds. So while you might not care if you are restricted to go down certain paths. Using skills that you do not like to use. But me and others do care and that is why I do not want that type of stupid and lazy synergy. If the dev team ever did that you would even see me say that they are dumbing down this game. Because those D2 synergies do not take any brainpower to figure out. They are just as mindless as players say picking skills and runes are here in this game.
Why? It's still around, and fairly active. Go play D2.
edit: That came out unintentionally snarky. Apologies. All I meant was that you can still play D2, compared to, say, WoW players who miss "vanilla" but have no way to play it again.

Alright, I feel compelled to chime in here when someone lumps WoW into the "brainy" category vis-a-vis skill trees.
No. one. except. "bads". played. non-optimal. builds. in. WoW.
There was absolutely Z-E-R-O "customization" with WoW trees, notwithstanding 1-2 "leftover" points that could be thrown anywhere. ANYONE who claims otherwise clearly did not play WoW, especially not after Arena was introduced.
lo l give it a rest, this is the lamest thing I have heard yet. Every skill you mouse over in D2 the tool tip told you which skills synergize It and which one it synergized. There was nothing left to the imagination or to even guess.
So when we say max your main skill ans max it's synergies
Mouse over Shout and you get
" recives bonuses from
Battle orders 6 seconds per level
Battle Command 6 seconds per level
MOuse over Battle orders you ger
Recieves bonuses from
Mouse over Bash you get
recieves bonuses from
Of course you had to make the tough decidion fire or cold. What a joke.
Disappointed that I bothered reading the majority of this thread...
The skill tree does not belong in Diablo 3. If one that is similar to the old style of skill trees that were in Diablo 2 and, to a lesser degree, World of Warcraft ever make an appearance in D3, it will most likely add a large amount of unnecessary hassle to the overall fun gaming experience.
