"I shall take your position into consideration"

I participated in the closed beta quite a long time ago and I was not so impressed.

Now I am considering giving it another try and see current state of the game.

Just wanted to ask some Qs.

Since the OB launches on wednesday, will there be a wipe before it goes live? Will there be a wipe after the OB?Is there any release date?

Currently playing: L2 Chronicle 4

There will be a wipe before OB. It's supposed to be the last wipe. Although GGG does reserve the right to perform another wipe during OB if they need to. I doubt that that happens though because they have a countdown for OB on the game's launcher that says "Last Wipe in...". So OB is basically release for POE.

Diablo 3 = Diablo 2 on meth

Path of Exile = Diablo 2 on steroids

PoE is just an amazing game, made by an amazing company, im looking forward to play in OBT too.

OB will be the last wipe. 2 days.

If they wipe after thier "last wipe" they will lose there playerbase so it just wont happen barring some epic gigantor bug of epic fail happens to the game. Considering this games been in an open style closed beta for so long with so many logged hours already i do not see that happening ever.

PoE FTW! Probably going ot be the best game of 2013 when all is said and done. Themepark games cant keep you busy that long. This game has some amazing replayability!

I am in the same boat as many, this is not usually my type of game, but I will admit for the $25 i gave them , i got my moneys worth in closed beta alone

 

So I totally agree for the price (free) this game is probably one the best f2p i have seen.

 

And if you check my history i hate f2p games with a passion.

 

But fun is fun, and this game is fun.

IMO PoE is just average, graphically it's a throw back, the passive system is not all that complex (convuluted and unecessarily so). I don't even see why they bothered with classes would have just been better off with a character customizer to tailor your toon.

I do like the Gem System providing skills, again with the passive system the way it is I don't understand classes since there is no real background provided (just a small synapses of your characters past). I don't like the barter system for NPC's although it is rather unique.

All in all for me it just doesn't offer enough to really make it better than the other two ARPG's currently leading the market.

I played it back in closed beta and thought it was really clunky. Diablo 2 was a much more satisfying experience to me. It seemed like a mediocre game released in 2000 imo.

 

I'll probably give a second try though.

OP  1/22/13 8:58:15 AM#29

I spent about 5 hours in the game the first time I played it after i donated 10$ to get into CB, that was about 4 months ago.

Then i came back 3 months later and for some reason just got so frikn hooked on it. I guess I was looking for a more traditional MMORPG because ARPG has never really been my fortei. I must say though giving this a 2nd chance was the best thing Ive done in a long time. This is just one of those games that will be on my computer for years. It is truly a masterpiece.

It looks interesting.

But as I'm not the biggest fan of hack&slash games, I probably won't enjoy it anyway.

I'm also wondering why it's listed on this site tbh (together with all them other hack&slash games listed here).

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

Why do they have ww2 games? or other random genres? Cause they get paid to advertise.

This game is how D3 was supposed to be like -- before Blizzard screwed it up.

Hope you guys enjoy the game as much as myself. I promise you 1 thing. The more you play the more fun it is. The harder it gets. The creepier it gets.

So excited for OB today! woot woot!

If they fix up the horrid animations I think this game may have a lot of potential.

I'm only level 6 or so but I haven't noticed anything horrible about the animations so far.


The game's been keeping me rather entertained. I like me a good hack n slash. :)

Based on the type of income model the game has if people support it I am sure the devs will work on the game non stop. They really seem to care about their game.

Got in a few days of CB b4 OB and have to second the OP... this game is great! Just like D3 should have been like. The fact that this studio is like 20 people should put Blizzard to shame!!! The feel of the game is awesome, the mechanics are smooth. This is what I imagined D3 should have been like. Shame on you Blizzard and go go go Grinding 4 Gear! You are my heroes.

Just got the confirmation of one of the (two) animators: They're in the process of going over a lot of early animations to improve them.
