    so the "we're" part is the usual small number of forum guys talking here (as usual).

    I know you hate guys "won" the place in here and it is kind of status symbol to seek refugee over here (ty mods ! for that). But frankly the SAME 600+ new public groups numbers being formed in prime time a whole 5 months after the last patch shows D3 is being played WITHOUT you guys, ... whther you like that or not.

    I really don't know why you are allowed to post still, this has nothing...nothing to do with what I just said.

    Your random crap posting doesn't refute what I was talking about in any way, all I was saying is that the people not satisfied with D3 primarily because it strayed from the concept of D2 seem to be very happy playing PoE.

    Also, PoE has around 2-3 times as many viewers on twitch as D3, just thought I'd leave that pointless metric here for you as you seem to like them so much.

    its 1 million times better on co-op, though. I played up to inferno in co-op as 4 players and i finished inferno solo because all my friends stopped playing, and while it is still a decent single player game, it's co-op just makes it so much more fun. Especially if u all sit on skype and talk and kill bosses and shit and share what loot drops and give eachother the loot they need and so on and so forth.

    In WOW forums and GW2 forums it is BORBIDDEN to talk about other games to be "better" to avoid the forum clashes. I just answered your teasing about PoE with some facts you do all the time.

    Apparently you don't like that.

    So a friendly advice: stick to Diablo 3 on a Diablo 3 forum.

    Why do you keep haunting for praise to trash talk the game I like to play?

    I mean if you really have NOTHING to say about the game I like to play, except to vomit all over it, please leave these pages as it is not allowed.

    yeah. it is. I sometimes have the impression I am always talking to non players of this game. But it is a general remark. Even on Diablofans sometimes you read things and say to yourself: this dude simply is not playing the game I play.

    Like the argument: you need the AH to advance: You can beat Diablo with lvl 60 gear in no time in grouping mode these days. Another one of those fables: group play is not awarded, while ... I gain 3X more loot and gold while just playing in group.

    Even public grouping is quite fun, but of course co op with real friends is max fun.

    I'm sure if the mods think I overstepped they would tell me, I doubt however that they appreciate you playing moderator here telling others what they can and can't discuss.

The same thing is happening in D3 now with Paragon levels, really no idea why they would want to reduce the re-playability that Paragon provides.

    At the end of the day there simply is no reason to strive too be good in Blizzard games anymore, you will get everything handed to you eventually anyway.
    I agree with you - usual playerbase becomes worse and worse because of the catering to big numbers of people, so sw houses feel that the games need to be simpler otherwise they don't sell.

    But i see a very big difference between a guy that can rock to the end of the game even with not good gear because of good skills, and the ones that get to finish because they have been lucky or spend more money with no effort at all (virtual or real doesn't matter).

    The actual point wasn't against good players, was about bad ones bragging their "superiority" because of the AH.

    And tbh i'm fine with the current paragon levels/time, compared to other people it will take for me forver to cap paragon.

    When D3 looses activity over 3 months <Xfire graphs explains it all.

    When another game's activity bombs in 2 weeks time <Xfire graphs are worthless.

    Xfire graphs show the eaxact same (but with a worse degree) in other ARPG's.

    Odd.

    Sadly due to Blizzard's player base overall a lot of their designs and arguments for them are being treated as gospel and carried over to other games, in the end affecting the whole market.

    Fair enough, don't mind me much I just sized the opportunity to rant a bit. :P

    xfire is outdated. i would look at twitch.tv numbers if you wanted to make such a claim.

    Most people who are sick of D3 played through it the first week and spent months farming gear so they got burned out and therefor it's automaticly a bad game. I wouldn't put to much into it.
    I personally love D3, it's definite the best ARPG out there by far but lack of content or end game like ladder, races and proper pvp it falls behind path of exile atm.

    Is entirely subjective so isn't 'definite'.

    This is coming from someone who doesn't have a lot of problems with D3 other than lack of things to do, which has been rapidly improved on. You touched on that in the rest of your comment. Similarly, TL2 has a different aesthetic and approach to character progression and I happen to like it better than D3. Does that make it the best? No.

    These 3 games have a lot of polish and substance for what they are going for. Unfortunately D3 had a very large precedent established that it didn't live up to. TL2 did live up to it's predecessor, expanding on and improving concepts from the first game. Don't mistake this as comparing the games and their quality, but merely a simple representation of what people wanted out of D3.

    Take D2 and expand and improve it. What we got at launch and still haven't gotten past is nothing even close to that. This is one of the larger issues that people have always had.

    wow, 600 games! with 10+ million copies sold! ain't that a fucking achievement ;p

    i'm pretty sure D2 has more.

    At launch I saw it as high as 3000. Not that it matters to Ben Bos. Hes the Alex Jones of these forums, hell pull something out of his ass to refute that.

    Twitch.tv isn't a good measure either IMO. People follow the streamer not necessarily the game they play. For example: Kungen is one of the biggest non-LoL streamers out there with around 4000~ concurrent viewers. His main game currently is PoE. Prior to that he was playing WoW with the same number of viewers. It's pretty obvious all the viewers weren't watching it for WoW streaming but rather Kungen streaming. Hell, people watch Kripp make spreadsheets for hours.

    You, sir, spoke my thoughts exactly on Diablo 3.

    I have just played a bit of PoE and it is quite fun, BUT it has one major flaw in my opinion.

    It's for hardcore gamers and there's nothing wrong with that at all, but PoE will not cater to a large market.

    Why? The passive talent tree is enormous and most of the time you are leveling the same stat over and over again, only to pick another passive.
    It doesn't feel very rewarding unlike D3 where a skill could change in various ways, making it feel rewarding to achieve that level. PoE's passive talent tree is a bit like the one in Diablo 2, you can f*** it up and there is no way to reset it all although you can gain points over time that will allow you to set it back a few points but never enough to completely redo it.

    Diablo 3 caters to me and many others, the casual guy, a game like PoE caters to hardcore players who like spending time figuring out talents and if need
    be level the same class with a different talent tree.

    It's not a flaw, the developer intended to cater to the hardcore crowd with the game so it's all by design.

    Love it for the ability to just jump in, play what I want when I want for however long I want. Really dislike the gear and well it would bring my laptop to a screeching halt at times lol
