    Can't remember off the top of my head, but who did they rip off?

    Not going to get into it.
    Sure, Blizzard have come up with everything by them self and have never ripped of anyone.

    It's more PoE then Diablo

    Warcraft from Warhammer..
    Starcraft from Warhammer 40k..
    Hearthstone from Magic..
    Heroes from DOTA..
    Overwatch from TF2..

    Or is it "creatively influenced"...?

    I don't remember PoE much. Didn't really like that for some reason. I do like this game. It's enjoyable for the part that works. But you literally can't help but to see Diablos running around. I call it as I see it. No point getting defensive about it. Blizzard probably copied other stuff too, but as I said I don't remember it.

    Well you forgot WoW is a copy of Ultima Online/Everquest? If you're calling genre. But I rarely see blatant copies of in game visual elements and people are being defensive about it.

    Edit: Also just realised this was a kickstarter campaign with over 11k backers. How the hell did they estimate that only 2000 players online on launch day is beyond hillarious.

    Since you didn't play PoE no wonder you think they come up with it all by them self.

    WoW is more of a copy of DAOC then everquest.

    All Blizzard does these days is rip off other games.

    After seeing what happened to Warcraft 3: Reforged, the answer is a resounding Hell No. Blizzard is starting to look like the super corporate shareholder appeasing on steroids version of EA and that just goes to show how far Blizz has fallen. Probably what will end up happening is wolcen devs will iron out all the bugs and make new great features, Acti-blizz will buy out devs, rebrand wolcen as D4 and somehow still mess it up.

    Cant wait to see the rain of hate on Diablo immortal when that abomination releases.

    That video has been used so many times. I wonder what they are actually saying. Is there a real translation somewhere?

    I know it's not what most play a game like this for, but the writing is horrendous.

    Thought it was a good story line. Nice voice acting and cut scenes .

    Some really hard final middle and act boss encounters that i'm people are going to cry over. Daiblo is rollface while PoE was hard but this is next level hard.

    Getting around 5x from singapore server when I can get in. Otherwise if APAC is too busy I hop over to US servers and get around 2xx.

    Playing in Champion level with full mods on a level 61 warrior and have no trouble with the ranged. Just jump to them and bleed edge will finish them. :)

    I like the spin on building upgrades for your home. A nice touch to keep doing portals, since the perks are really nice to have.

    I much as I've tried I cant get a WW spec going with enough damage output, anyone else got one going?

    I agree, I actually watch the cut-scenes and don't skip the dialogue.
