    Speaking of which, several years late (and avoiding all the early issues) I just started D3. It's been incredibly fun and addicting solo. 

    If a company could offer this type of combat, skill tree (more would be great) AND offer the non-combat activities of something like ArcheAge has and be open world + MMO, I'd be able to go full Lawnmower man and cut myself off from society.  :D

    IF you like Diablo2-like feeling try PoE.(path of exlie)

    It's a blast! :)



    Poe boring
    The only people that say this never got past level 5 and forget that D2 was insanely slow to start.  I loved D2, and any true fans of it will absolutely fall in love with PoE too.  The ONLY downside to PoE is that it's got a much higher point of entry to learn the game than D2 by miles.  It's a much more complex game and just looking at the skill tree will showcase that, but the depth it allows is unparalleled.
    I think it is great that people can enjoy different ARPGs. I bought Diablo 3 the Necromancer pack and then decided to try Path of Exile again and then I regretted the purchase of D3  necromancer pack because I enjoyed POE far more. However we all have different tastes and that is why we have so many games and the ability to choose what game we like to spend our time playing. Embrace the differences because these differences  give us far more choices going forward.

    Diablo 3 has 3 very powerful things on his side: exciting, good quality combat / simplicity + polish and the IP / Blizz sticker. None of other aRPGs can match it there. But a lot of them are better in other ways.
    I mean, I wouldn't use any of these adjectives to describe D3 in the least.  The only thing it has is the IP backing it, and that's even loosely associated because the story line was horrendous. It felt like a bad fan fiction.
    I as a purveyor of Diablo lore will agree to the level of quality of Diablo 3's story. The best part is Azmodan, easily. He is just what he should be: an oversized windbag. Which aRPG do you think is better polished or better in gameplay?
    Yeah... but his design is really underwhelming. All designs of that game are really underwhelming and forgetable. They "wow-fied" the game too much. Too many pointing shoulder pads and skulls gemstones over cloth armor (?!).

    Just like in heroes of storm in which Jaina has a knee metal plate over her cloth pants (?!?!!??!). Blizzard is really good with colors I'll admit, but some of their designs looks like was made by a 7 years old who can't stop 3 seconds to look and think about it.

    Wonder to what degree the sc2 engine can support the fast response feedback that is needed to be a decent emulated arpg experience. Not buying sc2 just to find out, but would still be interesting to know :)

    In diablo 2, yes. If I see a screenshot without hud from D2 or a sprite from D2, or an Item from D2 I instantly know is from d2. It had it's own vibe and it is impossible to deny its influence in modern gaming (points at Path of Exile).

    The same can't be said for D3. Which is sad because there are less known arpgs that are way more iconic than D3, like Torchlight or my all time favorite Sacred.

    I think it's great you find a F2P whale driven D2 derivative memorable. I don't. I do find your sanctimonious tone hilarious.

    I am completely unfamiliar with SC2 Arcade.
    I installed the game and found some custom maps.

    Could someone tell me what I need to to do access this Diablo 2 test?
