Forum Index General Discussion POE 4.0 vs Diablo 4


4.0 is coming sometime next year, Diablo 4 isn't even coming Blizzard soon, so it's not clear they're going to be competing. D4 might come around PoE 5.0 or something.

Pretty much all threads comparing D4 to PoE are sort of a joke, because both being partly controlled by Tencent means that any "competition" between them is more in the form of a sock puppet show.

tencent owns 4.9% of acti-blizz
tencent owns 80% of geegeegee

surely there's a difference there.

75.1% difference right of the bat ;)

in my book, the best scenario is the one where both games are great and you can hop between both at will.
it'd take some magic to make poe feel as smooth though (doesn't look like PoE is getting a new engine anytime soon, if at all.)

In dollars? I bet 5% of Activision is more than 80% of GGG.

I don't think PoE will have anything to worry about. I know I won't be touching D4 if it has limited trade. So, GGG you win in my book (unless you announce in 4.0 that you are removing trade, then I say to hell with both games)
