Blizzard Should Be SCARED: Path Of Exile’s Humiliating Takedown of Diablo Immortal



BIG Game Discounts



Grinding Gear Games have just announced Path of Exile 2, but what caught my interest a little more was how they managed to pull off announcing Path of Exile Mobile. Don’t you guys have phones?

  • Path of Exile devs have actually talked quite openly about their relationship with Tencent and they seem to be pretty hand-offs as long as money keeps rolling in and there are no major controversies. I presume that's the case with many other companies, too. To me that should be the obvious way to be an investor unless you are actively investing in a company to change its course because you see untapped potential in them. If you aren't like that and you just want more money, of course you let the people who convinced you to keep doing their stuff. That could be a different case when it comes to store/platform holders because that offers new possibilities other than just making money but I doubt that 5% shares in Activision Blizzard can accomplish that. It's probably just another safe bet as they got THE annual shooter franchise, THE MMORPG, THE hero shooter and many other money makers so only massive cat… (you guys not have phones) …astrophe could make that even somewhat uncertain source of easy profit.

  • I think all this video proved is that Western marketing is getting better at selling content made for China.

  • The difference was really they announced the sequel first. I would have been cool with Diablo immortal if 4 would have been announced first. Sounds petty, I know, but when you have been waiting for so long for a good Diablo game again expectations can go awry. Then when they announced immortal I, and obviously a lot of fans, was quite disappointed. Then to say "don't you have phone's", was unbelievable. If you're making a cash grab, don't make it obvious. Definitely don't make it obvious during the announcement. I felt Immortal was just an attempt to cash in on fans anticipation of Diablo 4. I'm glad Capcom doesn't do this crap and Monster Hunter World is amazing for it.

  • …Switch also doesn't have a six inch screen

    And I always laugh at how people gloss over the controller issue. Also, why did you use a $900-1200 iPad to benchmark against a $300 Switch? lol, I'd HOPE it would run Dead Cells at 60 fps

  • I still really enjoy the line "Do you not have nets exile?" in PoE, they added it after the Diablo immortal mess 😛

  • Marketing is marketing and mobile still mobile. This may have been announced better. This just tells me they have figured out to tailor their marketing to pander to the anti-mobile crowd. Fuck em still. "Hey, so you mobile games are bullshit right? Thats why we decided to release a mobile game." Ok so if you're bucking the trends how do you intend to monetize this not-bullshit mobile game???

  • I would love nothing more than to see Blizzard disband and never make games again… sorry D2 remake and D4, but you're just bandaids on open wounds.

  • Being a legendary Diablo player, and yes, I dare to say that. At least covering Europe and the hardcore ladder, anyway… PoE is what Diablo 3 would've been, sadly the Diablo II producers, etcetera ditched the projects… can't remember the mmorpg fps that the developers made, but failed, sadly nuff. D3 is like WoW and yeah, I did do a few world firsts in the original WoW, but nowadays, everything looks like WoW so, who can be arsed, not me :9

  • The only thing that Diablo 3 has over PoE which I consider to be something of huge value is the fact that Diablo doesn't punish their players or associating a cost with playing around with skills and different itemization customization or respecs. PoE forces poor players or medium wealthy players to have to stay with that build or start over if the skills they chose aren't doing the best. It forces poor and beginner players to constantly stick to guides and forces them not to think outside of the box considering the cost associated with it. I love to customize and play around with different configurations and D3 offers that. But outside of this PoE does everything else a ton better than D3. And hopefully D4 will keep the good about D3 and add popular PoE features.

  • When Chris Wilson ended his presentation with "We'll make this what you need it to be" I'm pretty sure everyone who's familiar with POE's development history knew he was being sincere. He's earned that level of trust.

  • I am soooo glad you are covering Path of Exile here. So many in the Blizzard world just don't have a clue about PoE's status now and are missing out on so much. Thank you for giving any attention to them at all, they deserve it! GGG are wonderful folks!

  • Nope gonna have to call hypocrites on this one. The big tag line for their jabs against Diablo immortal was the fact that path of exile was never coming to mobile.

  • In my opinion, i think that Lost Ark is waaay more epic than Diablo and POE combined, and soon it will be released globally

  • I did not know or imagine that Tencent's owned 80 percent of poe. I for sure figured it would be under 50 pct. I'm actually very surprised, money must have been a ggg issue.

  • It seems Kiwi's are better at MONEY and TRUST and SHARHOLDER MANEGMENT than every American I've ever seen.

    Also in the Beehive we are thinking of banning Chinese, American, and Australian stockholders from stealing our companies and housing or just banning stockholders outright.

  • Personally I believe that when blizz announced diablo immortals many people expected diablo 4 and thought that it was not going to happen when imortals was announced so the fire of the poor announcement of immortals had some extra spicy rage fuel by the lack of diablo 4

  • I wish Diablo had a skill tree as big a poe I would still be playing it… Only thing I don't like is that last bit of polish Poe felt like it was missing other wise great free game if your not nit picky like me.
