Depends on what you are into. As a longtime ladder/singleplayer D2 player (many years now), playing D3 felt like Blizzard was giving ME the middle finger. I dislike almost everything they have done with the game. It is much worse than mediocre.

POE is rough around the edges, no doubt, but I love the new mechanics it introduced. I agree with the poster that said "D2 is better," but I think POE is new and refreshing in the ways the genre needs. Flasks are unique items? Skills are handled like FF7 materia? MEGA HUGE passive skill tree? Love it. I really hope the AAA devs take notice of how much attention this game gets and give the ARPG genre a reboot worthy of $60 and years of play. Get creative. Make some awesome game changing items. Have fantastic random map generation. Make the combat feel great. Allow creative builds. Encourage multiple characters. Cmon ARPG devs. Hire me for Jay Wilsons old job, I'll turn the game on its head! tongue.gif

As far as balance goes, it was better right before open beta launched. They pretty much pulled an inferno and doubled everything because the game has to be hardcore, so it's now known as path of life nodes. Really cut down on build diversity. They also have some very strange, intentional, mechanics with armor... they don't want it to ever be faceroll for melee so your mitigation on incoming attacks is nerfed by a factor of 12*incoming damage. Pretty much makes armor and melee worthless since armor helps the least when you need it the most. They have a pretty good game, but some of their most important design decisions are questionable, really limiting the full potential of their game. If only someone would take the best from D2, Median XL, PoE, and TL2, they'd be making a pretty awesome game.

Diablo 2 is much better. Sorry to say but I have no idea why so many players play this game. It's completely broken and balance is screwed, though it's still open beta. Maybe it'll get better when it's released, atleast I hope so. Might check it again then.

Happy that people enjoy it though.

Heavy Strike Templar lvl 70, Sweep Templar lvl 72 and Marauder ground slam 66 here.

All melee, all own like beasts. You just dont know how to build your characters, give it a try and think more.

Let me know how that PvP turns out though, if it ever happens. smile.gif
If the PvP does ever happen it broke a cardinal rule of competitive gaming already. You can buy power. I personally wouldn't want to take a shot verse someone who can pick up better gear because they have a bigger wallet.

Huh? Nothing that you purchase from the store makes you more effective in any way.

I hadn't minded that so much (though I haven't gotten a melee character to merciless yet). I really don't understand their choices for party mechanics. If there is only one thing Diablo 3 did well, it was that you didn't ever have to fight over loot, and PoE seems to have decided you should only fight over loot... Pretty much makes public parties horrible.

I think he is talking about the PVP in D3. Which pretty much becomes auction house wars.

I think POE is overrated. I tried it, maybe too long ago but I ended up finding it was mediocre. Was good at first but I got bored.
