    Especially reading PoE dev statements made me cringe and think these guys were the first in line to go "YEAH IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE THAT" at the hardkorr photoshops of D3.

    I gave Path of Exile a go for like 10 minutes and quit because it was an awful hardcore wannabe clone with no charm or character.

    If only Torchlight wasn't just a bad imitation of D2 with 5 people simultaneously playing it on a good day.

    With mods, in Torchlight II you can Falcon Punch the Netherlord.

    And this is why you should've done the smart thing, and bought Torchlight II instead.

    Especially since Torchlight II can be actually modded. In fact, the devs even released an SDK to support it.

    Another problem that D3 has is that unlike D1 and D2 the market wasn't exactly saturated with Diablo-like games, now you have a bunch of games out there that can scratch that loot itch that Diablo was the king of about 10 years ago, games that are quite similar to Diablo itself (Torchlight) or even games that are wildly different but are still loot driven at the core (Borderlands 2) the fact that you now have options may have stolen some of it's thunder.

    To elaborate this wasn't exactly intended.

    People running around in Enis, Phoenixes, hotos or VHEEZEs are not supposed to be the status quo, it's just that massive duping in addition with horadric cubing/item socketing resetting item ID caused a retarded inflation in the market price of high runes and a simultaneous total dumbing down of the playerbase that didn't understand jack shit about optimization, considering hoto + eni the best shit for whatever they were running (I saw fucking sorcs using hoto, my pain was unending. To this day Javazons still run fucking phoenixes for no fucking reason except "somebody told me this is pro equip lawls".)

    D3 actually fixed a lot of gripes I had with D2, for instance physical fighters can keep up with their casting cousins and not need 2 ravens to even hit shit in Hell (and don't even get me started on fucking IM, it made act 4 literally impossible for ww baabs in HC).

    Too bad they fucked up the thing that was the most fun, that is trading and farming.

    Maybe. I didn't REALLY love D2 either though. You guys are absolutely right that the tuning down is a major factor. And of course the RMAH crippled their ability to actually do much about the balance in the game without completely alienating their user base. Many many factors, but if I were to nitpick and criticize, I'd definitely start here.

    Everything you mentioned in your initial post was pretty much in D2, and D2 was amazing.

    The problems with D3 lie elsewhere in my opinion.

    - Skills don't have ranks/levels. Major change. Getting +skill was crucial in D2. Not to mention stats generally can't be allocated.
    - Item drop rate is calibrated with the auction house in mind, making farming boring.
    - It's tuned down a lot. D2 was just crazy at endgame. An example is Teleport, which could teleport you through solid objects, anywhere on the screen, with no cooldown. Compare D3's completely lame version of the same skill.

    That's a big part of what turned me off. Items weren't this neat thing that I found that may or may not upgrade my gear. Everything was SHIT and all I needed to do was grind for the AH. Nothing was personal. it was all automated advancement.

    That, and the super repetitive maps. I knew where every point of interest is on a map after the first playthrough, because they don't change.

    I'd say the main problem was that having a easy to use auction house, made the grinding for items actually less exciting. The game turned into grind for gold/items you can sell for gold so you can get exactly what you want of the AH.

    D2 was more, wow look at this awesome thing I got, I'll use it even though it is clearly meant for a different class and has stuff on it i don't necessarily need because it is better than what I had previously.
