See what I did there? Go back to the D3 forums. I'm not sure the people in this thread talking about WoW, Warcraft, or Hearthstone want to hear about how much more you like PoE over D3.

Also, D3 isn't a sub-based game.

EDIT: I have heard at Blizzcon, the next WoW xpac will drop... I wouldn't mind coming back, but just couldn't stick with it through MoP. I'm not part of the camp that is OK with the Pandarens killing one another, especially after being so steadfastly neutral in all the retconned lore.

those micro-transactions, 100% aesthetic. The game has no centralized auction house, & never will. It also has an amazing, though time consuming "Crafting" system, & white items are actually useful, not just screen filling crap.

everything else is a matter of opinion, and one that hasn't gone too far into the game. Though, they have slowed down the progression quite a bit since "closed beta"

POE reminds me much more of what the ARPG genre should be over d3, but that is also a matter of opinion. Also, POE's "class" system is by far the most intriguing part of the game.

stick that in your pipe & spec it.

oh, i almost forgot, it's end game map system is simply amazing... POE is by far the most challenging arpg on the market today, when it comes to end game content nothing can touch it.

Most definitely.

Also, aren't they late for an expansion? They usually exposed it before the last raid, and now they're killing the last boss of the expansion, I wonder if they wonder if they should kill the game or not, heh.

& i was thinking, when will they learn it's time for WoW to be berried in a shallow grave, so the feral cats can come feast upon it's corpse.

We use to track content releases in rift by number of nerf's pushed. Major nerf = new content inc.

Probably when they're not making 94 million a month even after a loss of 54% in revenue..... Seriously you can say how can you want it to die and it's bleeding out but it's still making more money then other devs dream of making. I don't play but I understand why it's still going. Anyway I also think its an expac, they already said they will go f2p at some point but mechanics aren't in place to do it. So I expect at least one more expansion in the normal pay scheme but the new mechanics will be setup so that when they lose enough subs after it can be switched over to f2p.

How many accounts do you guys think are dormant ? Kid's grew up, went to college, quit playing, daddy kept paying.

Since Wow came along the only thing they've done is Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3...Starcraft 2 is a complete refresh of the original...nothing really new...more unit abilities I guess. The game was a sure thing to succeed since the build-a-base-RTS market wasn't very saturated at the time...Supreme Commander was about the only other one around at the time that I can think of and that wasn't too well recieved. E-sports where still using Starcraft 1 for crying out loud. Well C&C 4/5 was in here somewhere, but...yeah...

I think they've stagnated too long and have just gotten to used to relying on customer loyalty. I am still hoping this is going to be a new game...with a new lore set, plot, and story backing it. Blizzard is considered a top tier development studio...they should be capable of making a really good game. Though they wouldn't name anything just Heroes of the Storm...that sounds like something found after a colon...tongue.gif meaning like Warcraft 4: Heroes of the Storm. So we will see...

Though it will probably end up just being a card set for Hearthstone

Where are you getting this information?

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness is a fantasy-themed real-time strategy (RTS) game published by Blizzard Entertainment and first released for DOS in 1995 and for Mac OS in 1996
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warcraft_II:_Tides_of_Darkness

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (often referred to as War3 or WC3 or RoC) is a high fantasy real time strategy video game released by Blizzard Entertainment on July 3, 2002 (US). (7 years later!!!)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warcraft_III:_Reign_of_Chaos

Starcraft : March 31, 1998
Starcraft 2 : July 27, 2010 (12 years)

Diablo 2 : June 29, 2000
Diablo 3 : May 15, 2012 (12 years)

If you are going to try and argue a point please back it up with accurate information. Starcraft 2 went into the EARLY development phases almost right after Starcraft : Brood War was launched. Same with Diablo 3 and Warcraft 3 (with their predecessors.)

I didn't say I want it to die, all i'm saying is it may be racking up money, but its far time for a sequel instead, the game feels and IS outdated as hell. With the money they make, they could easily make a super developed sequel that will bring that 54% back instantly + more users. I can't even begin to imagine why they don't.
