not saying this is a bad game but why is it that if a game is labeled a "wow clone" its automatically hated on but this game being a diablo clone gets praise?

not only is this game a diablo clone, some of it is a direct rip off.

from character selection to the inventory panel to the UI (and this is just from playing the game for 10 minutes, there is probably much more)

its actually pretty funny how blatantly they ripped off diablo.

whatever happened to these indie companies being more creative? isn't that why so many of you support them? or is it just because you hate the big companies like blizzard that make tons of money?

i am not trying to post flame bait, but the double standard just seems odd to me.



Once you realise how awesome the mechanics of this game are you will throw your diablo 3 box to the garbage just like kripparrian did.

At the beggining i was saying that this game has no chances even against the crap game diablo 3 but after iu played it for a while i realised that poe is 100 times better than diablo 3.

Sure diablo 2 was a great game and diablo 3 ruined everything we knew but poe is here to give us back that oldschool feeling.

For those saying that combat is slow etc wait till you gain some lvls and see for your self how slow the combat is,otherwise look some streaming on and you will get the idea.

I see poe becoming a huge success over the years for an arpg and it's the best on the market right now.



PoE is fun as hell to play , has a depth gameplay ,pvp (with ladder) , no p2w , and its free ! what more u can ask for?

  I think the thing to really take away from this is that there is a large difference between what we consider good clones and bad.  A bad clone takes a good ideal and adds little, or nothing, to it.  A good clone takes a good ideal and expands on it, making everything about its success larger and grander than before.  Path of Exile took a style, both artistic and gameplay, and drove it forward.  Its the very same reason that WoW was a success in the first place.  They took the core concepts of the EQ style MMO game and expanded on it and added to it in a way that made in more fun to play.  Then Blizzard forgot that this was the reason they owned THAT market, and failed to apply it to D3. 

  Its not the fact that a game is cloning positive aspects of another that we hate.  Its the lack of innovation and drive AFTER the fact we hate.  PoE took the D2 formula for success and souped the engine up then added some Nitrous and flashy lights to the undercarriage.  We LIKE that.  For all the talk otherwise, I don't really think we expect someone to reinvent the wheel here.  But we do expect them to make it last longer and work better with each new model.  With the average WoW clone, its the opposite.  You get the bare bones of a good game, with all the pretty lights said game has stripped away.  Its like replacing a rubber racing tire with a spoked wagon wheel.  YAY!  They both make stuff roll forward!  Just make sure you have a carpenter before you ford the river, I dunno about you guys but my trips to Oregon usually cost me about 3 of those things each time.

Made me laugh...awesome! 

Fun Fact: 1st edition of Dungeons and Dragons was complete garbage.

Tunnels and Trolls all the way... ^^

Yeah that's good stuff not many remember those old PnP "Dungeon Crawl" games.  I used 1st Edition D&D as a reference simply because very few gamers today even know the roots of todays MMORPGs.


Remember Star Frontiers by TSR?  Or how about James Bond and Runequest from Victory Games?

Lets look at it this way. 


U just had s*x (kinky time with a GF or BF) for the first time...  it was OK, but it was not good. This is how i see Diablo 3

But i did it in the same way, like i did it with my old GF, --- lets say Diablo 2.... wich were alot better

But then, 12 month later, i find new GF, and start having kinky time with her. Yes, we doing the same thing, but now its better, ALOT better.  Thats how i see PoE

Its hard to make hack and slash game, that does not look like diablo1. coz there are ALOT of games, that look the same way.  but they are not the same...
