"Nobody seems to talk about Path of Exile much anymore."
Probably because it's a mediocre game.
Sorry "Mountain_Man", but what you are saying is just utterly bullshit and arrogant. Just because the game is not fun to *you*, doesn't make it a "mediocre game"... You say the developers took missteps as if it were a fact, still there are many players out there who enjoy PoE nonetheless. Really, I like both PoE and Diablo for what they are, for they are two different games with completely different approaches, but you, Sir, just sound like a fanboy...
