With the sucess of "League of Legends", this game looks like it might be heading in that direction.  I just got a beta invite for "Path of Exiles".  Looks interesting

They talk about tournaments and ladders.

The skill tree points you can put into your character looks huge too

 

Any thoughts on this?  Is this where we are heading or it's just another game

      I played Path of exile beta and it is exactly like Diablo 2 with better graphics, good game if you have a few hours to kill but not really fun beyond that

    The skill tree is beyond stupid... And huge!

     

    This is only different from any existing skill tree in one way.  They take what a normal (I would say good) game has for a talent (+10 strength lets say) and turns it into 10 separate buttons to click each only giving +1 strength.  Basically you'll have to fill out a HUGE portion of the tree in order to notice any difference.

    This is exactly what Blizzard and WoW is trying to fix in the next expansion.  It isn't really fun for players to spend talent points in a tree if each point is barely (or not at all) noticable.

    I'm all about having deep character customization but there is no depth when you take a simple tree and break it up into 1000 smallar parts.  That's just stupid.

    Just to let you know, that is outdated and the new skill galaxy absolutelly Dwarfs that one.

    Its way more fleshed out, with more interesting possibilities for builds, with enhanced art for each icon too :D

    Besides the addition of aura type of abilities and new active skills.

    Yes, I got an invite through an email a few days ago.

    This is what it read:

    We're opening up the Path of Exile Beta for public access this weekend, March 30-April 1, so that we can stress-test our servers in preparation for entering Open Beta in a few months.



    If you've been patiently waiting to try Path of Exile, now is your chance to check out the game - for one weekend only.



    The game has been in Beta since August and we have been regularly adding content, classes and skills. The open weekend will include the first two acts of the game, Default and Hardcore leagues, five character classes, approximately 55 active skills, 40 support gems and hundreds of item types.

    That skill tree looks like somthing from a system's engineer nightmare its pointless its a bloody normal tree skill base system if they wanted to use that they've should've put into a more comprihensible format.

    I agree.  When I saw that, it kinda put me off for the game.  I am not that good when it comes putting skill points in.  I spend hours on the interent looking where I should put my points in to match my play style.

    This one, I could see myself spending a week trying to find the right one for me.  WoW wasn't that hard to find what points to put in, but this one.....OMG....where do you put them?

    i played PoE beta and its good for people who love complex character tech trees...but to be honest it didnt capture me whatsoever. the game to me personally from my experience is terrible when delivering something fun or actually entertaining. it just doesnt feel like something i could spend hours playing...because ive tried and man oh man was i bored fast.

    Looks like my ff10 experience will come in handy here.

    Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

    Well it is not stupid and in fact players want huge skill tree not stupid dumbed down auto skills. For me is  big joy to play around with skill tree. Well i know it is the time of instant teleporting, no mounts, no running, no battlegrounds, no gear but it is nice to see one game that have something what is core of mmorpg

    You're right, my bad.  Plus, they are all passive.

    but

    They call it a skill tree

    I actually played with it.  Very interesting

    Check it out

    That's true.  But if the people playing it are anything resembling LoL then I won't be able to tolerate it.

    Don't stress about it too much. If you get lost in that web and spend your points unwisely, it's no biggie. You can always start a new level 1 character and level that to cap and try again. :-D
