    For those jumping on this thread without even reading, it is stated that Diablo 3, could have been more than just a re-skinned D2. 
    With lineage we have a full fledged MMO, massive siege battles, large scale pvp, a more in depth combat system. So yes from an MMO perspective, hell even a Diablo style gaming perspective, this game ALREADY looks better in this early stage, from what I personally have seen of both games. 
     

    Then you obviously haven't looked into Diablo 3 at all if you believe its just a reskinned version of D2.

    I wish Diablo 3 was a reskinned Diablo 2. I essentially wanted that, but less disbalanced and counterintuitive, with deeper systems. When the news just began pouring in, I loved everything I heard, the classes, the skills, the variou systems, etc., up until pretty much the very end where they dropped all the crazy stuff on us. I was all for innovation 5 years back, but with innovation I wasn't talking about "let's just throw everything out from the skill system, make everything simpler, and also get real money involved".

    My hope for Diablo 3 died with that series of announcements. Anything goes now, bye Diablo.

    As for LE, not sure if I like isometric here. I never got into Lineage because the level process was absolutely abysmal.

    Two for me.

    You can adjust your posting per page setting. More postings = much easier to access + read.

    Sorry D3... ITS OVER... you have just been sent to the grave. Lineage Eternal looks to have better combat, EPIC sieges, and is a full fledged mmo.
    I would bet on houses and of course castles to claim, etc, following in true Lineage tradition. 
    The scope of these battles and the interactive environments looks awesome. 
    ENJOY

    It' what happens when a successful group of people sit on their laurels too long.  They just don't try as hard, or be cutting edge anymore.  2 video game companies that I used to love years ago are this way now, and for all intents and purposes, lost to me.

    "I have only two out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold."

    NCwest will manage it here in the west so i'll have to pass. Hacks, cheats and corruption are things i'm not looking for in a game. Otherwise it could have been a great game.

    I loved lineage 1 and I miss it. Will this lineage not ha e the same pvp open world? What about  the player interaction lineage1 had.

    One shouldn't compare LE to D3.
    LE is about innovation, fun gameplay and a mmo with real advanced graphics and hack & slay.
    D3 is running solely on fanboy nostalgica and is centered about money money money and money, metagaming less about the game(play) itself..

    NCsoft isn't the charrity either but they don't design LE around it.


    Just look at the way you control spells with mouse gesture and then get back to button smashing with cartoonish WoW graphics.


    Let's just hope enough of L1 and L2 survived in LE story and itemwise. (L2 used icon graphics from l1 and even armor set names and themes :)

    why would anyone complain that its an mmo, that means huge large scale battles! D3 four player cap sucks ass

    Will definitely be checking this out. No open PVP/PK will probably destroy the social aspect that made L2 awesome in the beginning.

    These games thrive on drama. Heres hoping for an open PVP server with similar rules to L2 at OB/launch.

    This game will not do will in the west because it has lineage brand attached to it.  Not exactly a beloved name in MMORPG gaming here.

    L2 OB/Launch was one of the best times I have ever had on any MMO, Talking Island was just amazing, fingers crossed they will manage to capture the essence of Lineage with this.

    I find it humorous that the OP says (paraphrasing) that D3 will be sent to the grave, but doing a search online, I just read that LE will release in 2014.... I'd say that D3 has plenty of time to live, and has potential change and expand.

     

    If the LE were on the verge of release back in November 2011 when this thread was created, you never know.. But 2-3 years after D3 launched.... Naw.

    They might pretty much do both very well. even after years.

    ...

    But after seeing that trailer I wonder if diablo 3 even exit.

    It looked like Diablo3 to me.

    With all that gameplay / fun / interraction / ragdoll / etc...
