Maybe I'm just an old fart that doesn't play games very often and doesn't know what's popular to make fun of but this actually seemed pretty amazing to me.
Just superimpose hipster music listener onto PoE, that should give you a good starting point about what to hate.
That didn't make sense.
And that's exactly why I stand behind it 100%.

Everquest 2 is significantly more innovative and advanced than World of Warcraft but it is held back by SOEs complete disgust and hatred for their customers.
It's amusing to watch Blizzard bend over backwards trying to please their customers by engaging in every possible way and developing features to drive monotony out of their games. SOE, instead, beats customers back with nerfs, bans, policy, and player hating features so they can focus on engineering innovative stuff.
Blizzard won with a run of 10M customers and SOE has been barely able to keep EQ2 funded.
Fine, but look at what Blizzard's pander policy created in Diablo 3. Bland, repetitive, predictable shit. WoW's success is simply a social and cultural phenomenon. Blizzard was nice to the horde that mutally agreed, "hey, let's just make WoW the MMO that everyone plays." WoW isn't a special game at all, just a stroke of luck that's given Blizzard way too much money.
Blizzard has money to start innovating and fucking their customers over a little, but Diablo 3 was predictable and shitty. They need to step up and start coming up with interesting titles while they can, and stop leaving it to all the 2nd-place game makers to do it (and inevitably fail given their woeful funding).
I take that back, they peaked at WC2 (which was fun) and havent evolved since. That's nice someone made a super mario level in starcraft 2 but it's still a stale piece of gum that belongs in the trash.

Blizzard isn't a bad company, but their games aren't hardly as innovative as they like to say. Periodically, they release a new set of shiny things for people to tackle, only THIS TIME YOU HAVE TO RUN IN CIRCLES DURING THE FIGHT, or THIS TIME ITS IN A JUNGLE, or THIS TIME YOULL BE FLYING AS YOU SPELLCAST. Either way, they still want you to spend all your waking time in their stupid game that is still essentially the same it has been for the past 7 years.
