    Signed up for the beta months ago, but never got selected just like Diablo 3.
    Will have a look at it this weekend though.
    Looks pretty smart for a f2p game.

    I also signed up for the beta with no luck. Patching now, hopefully it will be good. I need a new game.


    Edit: Great servers for now, getting my full 2MB download! Nice, hope it stays that way.

    Well thanks for the heads up... I ended up playing that thing all night long. Reminds me a lot of Titan quest actually

    Pretty amazing that this will be a free to play game. Played for 5 hours or so and still on act 1 with quite a few quests felt to do.
    I'm not sure how it stacks up to Diablo 3 as I never got to play the beta, but it plays and looks superb from what I've seen so far.

    It has more but they're not enabled yet, I don't know how big the game will be but act 3 is in development as is a lot of other features, also unsure when act 2 came online but the game will probably be quite nice once finished though until then there's the beta to help test features as they become available. :)

    I would think that there is still a bit more content to develop for this game. The size of the skill tree is massive and 2 acts would barely scratch the surface of it.

    Really good patch, about 1.3 gig !
    Another open beta this weekend for anyone that hasn't played it yet, would be a great way to pass away the weekend while waiting for D3 next week. http://www.pathofexile.com/

    It's OK, I tried it a long time ago. I didn't like the skills tree, it just seemed overly bloated and unnecessary.

    They have been changing it a lot lately and its not final so I wouldn't make up my mind based on an incomplete product.

    I have to say I'm intrigued. Tried this a few times and I gave up every time after a couple of hours. but this time I actually got into it a little bit more and yeah... Intrigued. There's a few things I'm not too keen on. the interface feels very archaic, can't preview drops on the ground, the inventory size is very old school, the combat is somewhat snail paced (here's to those who bashed D3 game pace, which is in fact a LOT faster than this) and the combat again is a little bit clumsy and it feels heavy.

    It's hard to describe, but in D3, you almost feel like you're dancing amongst all the arcane/frostbomb sh1te with ease, sidestep here, sidestep there, teleport, hydra, boom things are dead. Combat in PoE feels very old and stale and clumsy... It's like comparing Rosie Jones to Bridget Jones... But there's something about PoE that keeps me going back, recently. I think it could be the dark atmosphere. the skill "tree" that is pretty interesting and almost an unlimited playground. Can't put my finger on it. But yeah, intrigued to say the least.

    There's so many things wrong with PoE. but there's something that seems to be very right at the same time. interesting.

    Execution... most of the time that's why it pleases us somehow. They executed this game in a way that you kinda like.
