Because Diablo started the subgenre and PoE is the current uncontested king. Every game in the genre gets to be compared with it. Sure beats reading random ramblings from (apparently senile) nostalgia fags.
I puked in my mouth reading this. I would take Diablo 3 over PoE like any day.

No, it's because I despise PoE's skill tree. It's a convoluted fucking mess. It might be the worst skill tree in gaming history. No thought was put into any of it. They just clumped attributes and skills all together in one giant abomination so they could be like "LOOK HOW HUGE OUR SKILL TREE IS. BIGGEST EVER!"

Whenever I see boards like POE's, my eyes glaze over and I weigh out whether the game is fun enough to warrant sorting through some Chinese checkers shit. The answer is usually no.

If you know what you are looking for, it's quite simple actually, but I guess it can scare new players away hm

It didn't scare me at all. I understood perfectly how it worked and it's complete asshole cancer.

This is how it's done:



This is NOT how it's done:


The most common sense thing imaginable.

Sorry but DII system is so basic it hurts you can delete energy stat because there is no reason to invest in it, then you cut off str or dex based on your build and wow what a meaningful progression lol

D2 attribute system is extremely pointless. Every build is minimum strength required for equipment, minimum dex for max block if you're going for that, then dump everything else into vitality.

This has nothing to do with what is being discussed. We're talking about UI. Diablo 2 had a very basic intuitive UI. PoE's UI is a trainwreck to put it mildly. It's the opposite of intuitive and the people who sing it praises are fucked in the head. I want to slap each and every one of the retards who worship that turd.

What's the point of good UI if there is nothing meaningful in it?

If IGNorant don't write/record a terrible review like this after D4 launches, is because D4 is too dumbed down.

Every fantasy game ever.
Look. Look at this. The POEfags can't help themselves. What is wrong with these creatures.
Shut the fuck up, nigger. Go back to playing D2. This is a D4 thread and it will be compared to every competitor in the space until the end of time.



You don't have to watch the whole video but just watch the first minute and a half. This is what you're sucking the dick of. Look at it. Look at this fucking ugly monstrosity. What is wrong with you, boy?

It's easy to have an intuitive UI for basic things. There are plenty of failures in PoE UI, but the tree is not one of them, quite the opposite. It's easy to navigate/find stuff/do required actions.

Dunno what that game is, Diablo 2 was the last one they made.
This is a D4 thread, fuck off. You're a nigger troll. Your knowledge is limited to what some click-bait channel shows you. Flicker strike isn't even a popular build.

Let's not pretend that both games "suffer" under the same "problem", that is the ultimate zoom zoom for the ultimate dopamin rush every few seconds (with Path of Exile still being the worst offender out there). Sadly, this seems to be a very popular thing nowadays, when you consider how highly-considered games like for example Vampire Survivors are, where you just press one button (or even none) and everything around you just dies, while you're getting bombarded with "Level Up!", "Item GETTO!", or other positive messages. I really felt like that this complete genre was lost to me when Path of Exile turned out to be the next Median XL instead of the next Diablo 1.

PoE...competitor...LOL

Like I said, even Diablo 3 is better. Hell I would rather play Titan Quest and that game puts me to sleep.

I would take PoE over Diablo 3 tbh

I played PoE for years and the biggest issues for me were,
  • game is ugly
  • it has no style
  • it's not SP friendly
  • animation is stiff
  • enemy design is shit
Diablo 3 is dumbed down, geared towards online play and looks like WoW

Diablo 4 perhaps got the art direction right, but forwent everything else and is even more dumbed down than Diablo 3

Therefore the answer will always be Diablo 2. There aren't any competitors, there have never been any. Nor is there another uncontested king, other than it.
