POE gets my vote. In my opinion, it's currently the best ARPG released, followed closely by cLOD and Median.

D3 and Torchlight lag behind these 3 by quite a bit, IMO.

But again, opinions.

What if you like not wasting money and having a BETTER time with a shorter game?

Go Path in this case... Very Happy

Diablo 2 NON LOD> cLOD.

To be brutally honest (gonna take some shit for this 1)

as far as a game goes (story, fun, replay-ability, style)

D1>cLOD+D2nonexpansion

Did d2 raise what you can do higher as far as options? Yes. Was it for the better? certainly not always.

I find myself playing d1 on PC/MAC/Linux (even couple years ago on PSP and my Samsung stratosphere) tons more than anything other than Median (1)

#2 without a doubt is D1.

#3=POE (Late alpha until Open Beta branched out to 4 ladders, played for year and a half only).

and 4 are Civ4: FALL FROM HEAVEN (Mod #2 although its equally great as median and changes basic game more) (probably played this one for almost as long as median but its RPG not ARPG so putting it 4th)

5th most played is just NBA2k series Razz

i remember i got into that open beta for PoE a long time ago. i was so excited to play (still am, in a way, knowing that Laz works on it!), but when i finally got it installed, it didn't work with my graphics card

if/when i get a new comp, ill have to try PoE out. watched a friend of mine play it for a minute once, kinda reminded me of dungeon siege at first glance. or like torchlight, but with sensible graphics (not knocking stylized graphics, that is. though the WoW and D3 style is sort of lame, but that's neither here nor there)

After weeks of playing POE, here are my opinions:

BAD:
• Crafting sucks here. The only way to get good items is to loot it or to trade for it.
• I don't have any right to say it right now but I say that RNG-esus hates me. Either I end up with low-tier currencies or the game will rain shitty uniques and skill gems that can be sold for 1c.
• One of the strongest builds in-game, the COC Discharger, is impossible without Voll's Protector. And to further boost it, you need Voll's Devotion ammy which can only be looted on a league long ago.
• Don't ever wish to be a top racer if you have a shitty computer. Loading times can be long enough for others to overtake you even if you have a headstart against them. According to what I've read, loading times on an SSD wasn't significally lower than on an HDD. Server-side maybe?
• Never try to make a melee character for it is shit to hit enemies in desync. But some players can cope with that using macro/hotkey programs (a push of a button and the program will type /oos in chat).
• LOW POPULATION. Yep that's right. There are even more players still playing Skyrim than in POE.
• GARENA. Poor SEA people (like me). The population in global is even lower here in garena. Sad

GOOD:
• Watch your character melt mobs by utilizing skill combos (I currently use ST + GMP + COC + Arctic Breath + Fireball + Conc. Effect/PCoC)
• Easy levelling. (I don't know if this is good or bad but maybe for new players it is good)


My recommendations:
• If you wanna play this, make sure you got a good PC set-up.
• Go for range builds. COC builds are fun but sacrifice gear slots for purely inc. crit. chance. Can go for a caster and even manual discharge. Or even stick-to-one-skill like a Buzzsaw (which uses ST). You will still encounter monsters that are out of sync but you won't even notice it.
• Read FAQs, Wiki, etc. to broaden your knowledge here in path of exile (just like here in MXL:U)
• Use Windowed Fullscreen if alt-tabbing is your habit. Prevents the game in auto-DCing when switching to other programs.

Can you change vote? Voted for poe but I'd take a game I never played over it. Just keeps getting more tacky, slower (additions), and worse every ladder, patch, difference.

@Above poster ----POE actually used to be near d2 quality in alpha beta stages. then just a big fuckup. then another one. on and on.

above poster (forgot name) wrote:• LOW POPULATION. Yep that's right. There are even more players still playing Skyrim than in POE.

Guessing this is bc of kripp and followers. YAY! I miss lower pop.

There's nothing more fun and challenging than getting your PoE HC character to level 95, all comes down to patience

The players of POE either have high end gamming machines and/or are hardcore fans of it. Because there are so many complains about desync, poor performance on hardware X, that you either have a machine that it's unaffected by the bugs or play too much POE.
