[GS] Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Sells Over 2.7 Million Copies. - Page 15

I am also gathering gear to try out a high dps DoT build.

that's cool i guess. i just don't see the appeal still though. it doesn't have the strategic depth dota 2 or the skillshot/dodge elements of lol. plus the auto-targeting just makes the game feel sloppy. poe has a much more precise feel, like lol or dota, though it's flawed in other ways

Auto targeting? In DIII? I really don't understand how a mostly PvE ARPG is compared to PvP MOBA games. Feels like comparing Battlefield to The Witcher or so.

I'm sorry but what? You are comparing apples to oranges here. They are two very different type of games from two very different genres.

The Diablo franchise is an ActionRPG (hack n slash RPG)

DotA and LoL are of the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena genre.

i dont think he knows what he's talking about, uninformed opinion is uninformed. or troll.

cherry picking completely different characteristics of games for comparison, isn't a comparison.

it's like saying I like diablo 3 over any MOBA because it has a story line, character progression, and an interesting loot system. Well yeah, because MOBAs don't have that. rolleyes.gif

basically hitboxes in d3 are far bigger than the actual figure you are clicking on. try clicking on an enemy, then move away. hitboxes are 2-3x bigger than the enemy, which actually makes it hard to target anything near a very large enemy a lot of the time. also, once you target something, you lock-on and your attacks will focus that enemy.

the best way to tell the difference is to make an archer-type hero in poe and a dh in d3. d3 feels like an isometric arpg made for wow players-basically they assume you have zero precision clicking skills, which is half the game for this type of game

Does anybody have any estimates on when/if RoS will be on sale? I want to get it really badly but $40 is a lot of money.

Maybe for Christmas, not before then though.
