This game will destroy Blizzard and Diablo

It's not even funny. The hype is increasing every day. Every tease they release is met with massive hype and excitement.
The game looks incredible. From graphics, to sound, to game design, it just seems like it will completely destroy Diablo for all eternity

          That slowness is what has me excited.
          It looks like a real fricking game instead of the ADD simulator that POE1 has turned into. Like their own iteration of the Grim Dawn/TQ formula.

          As cool as it looks, can you imagine going through the campaign more than once? Depending on how slow it will be, I can't imagine people going through it more than once per league, or worse, once in total.

            Short-term: This is so fricking awesome!
            Mid-term (around the time you've played like half of the 12 classes, but not necessarily all 3 Ascendancies on those 6 or so classes): This is still pretty cool, it keeps surprising me with how much stuff each class has
            Long term (the perpetual burnout phase): God, why does the tutorial take so long? The drops prior to Red maps are fricking dogshit
            Just like PoE1. But it'll take me personally several years to reach that point.

        And all those animations are lingering moving hitboxes, not just a generic arc hitbox with a damage value like the typical isometric ARPG spinning attacks or just normal attacks hitting specifically what you pointed at

              It's an option in the sense that you can choose not to but the game is built entirely around going fast or else they'd have removed things like Delirium, they only want to slow the player down and nothing else so it feels horrible to play

                No. Delirium has plenty of difficulty levels. You can juice more or less.
                Can you do the hardest juiced content going slow and dealing low DPS? No
                Does it mean the game is balanced around going fast? Also no, they purposefully let you juice because it is an option and not forced on you

    How will it destroy Blizzard? I mean frick Blizzard but they've already won. Their mobile game Diablo that was so hated and laughed at is bringing them $600M in yearly revenue. Don't forget that Diablo 4 was marketed with Megan Fox for absolute normies, they've already purchased it, leveled to 40 and moved on like they always do and what is left are whales that are milked with barely acceptable seasonal content.

    That is the saddest thing about all of this. Blizzard was right and they made a ton of money. And people will come back to gulp more foul logs dropping out of Blizzard's butthole. Games as service model being so normalized and working as intended for the execs is a grim timeline.

    Meanwhile PoE2 will sell you stash for $10 and perhaps it will be a fair product with great mechanics and a lot of love put into it. It will be hailed as an amazing ARPG. It doesn't matter. Blizzard is 10x bigger. The drooling consoom moron is the customer and the customer is always right.

        Diablo Immortal is also on PC so it doesn't matter how it all started. They are milking both crowds at the same time. Diablo 4 was made for more brand recognition first, making a good game was secondary to it. I must admit D4 is a good game at its core but it's a sad puppet paraded around by a corporation that would gladly kill you if it made them more money.

        Nice energy bro, totally keeping us optimistic.

            The skills wouldn't cancel on movement, they just cast as you are moving. The reason you need to cancel is because you can't cast and move with click to move, so you are locked into an animation. With WASD you could move and cast skills simultaneously and fluidly.

    PoE1 requires wayy too much effort for the average person to learn and execute to get to the end game, even if they are following a build guide. PoE 2 is going to be Chris Wolcen's bastardized baby where he puts in all the little cancer shit he wants because he's made so much money and has so much funding from China so all he has to do is give all the QoL to the China servers like he already does and make it a fricking painstaking game for the rest of us. It's unironically a badly designed game with way too much bloat and requires multiple 3rd party apps/websites to be played effectively.

      who cares, 50% of players quit before Brutus. Another 50% quit before killing Kitava 2.0 and only a tiny portion ever make it past red maps. The endgame is for autists and it should stay that way, a lot of people still enjoy playing it and checking out new stuff every league, not every player has to kill uber bosses
      I don't think GGG even owns the chinese version, they make their own choices and QoL a long with P2W mechanics

        That's fine but I'm just giving the reasons that it's not going to btfo the competitors as the OP is saying. Turbo autists will play PoE but the casual fan or parent probably wont because it demands so much time and effort from you. I've got giga hours in the game but I simply can't be arsed to play it anymore because it's tedious and Chris likes it tedious for no reason other than that's what he likes. If that's what he wants that's fine but a lot of people will burn out and might not continue to play.

              3.15 was definitely a turning point for the game, and it never really recovered in my eyes. What ever came after was more and more aids.
              Not even sure what broke it to me exactly, but adding more iterations of slow that you couldn't strip down during the campaign, a new artificial currency scarcity and so on. It just added up the tedium, and the game doesn't have the same experimental freedom it used to have anymore.

        Inquisitor Martyr, not too popular but it had the WASD option and basically it plays like a twin-stick shooter if you want it to, but with all the ARPG stats, gear, skill trees etc. The main point being you can physicallly move out of the way of attacks easily while still attacking. But the inclusion of doge roll disappoints because that generally means there will be shit that one-hits you or you die in a split second, which is not my preferred style. But so far it looks better than POE1 to me.

      Yeah because game needs a reason to be slow, and for that you have strategy/tactics games, action games have to be fast even if there is choice involved in gameplay, but in arpgs there is literally zero reason to keep everyone slow other than certains people inability to play without pressing 4 buttons rotations for each enemy pack.

    They literally lifted the dodgeroll exactly like it is from Elden Ring. If an enemy uses a projectile or a melee attack and you roll through it you will be invincible, but if the enemy uses an aoe or multi-hit attack you have to get out of that zone while dodging.
    The onky difference is that there's no stamina/mana cost in PoE2
