I have to say that the positive response to Grim Dawn so far gives me hope for a quality ARPG. I need my ARPG itch scratched and neither D3 or PoE are doing it for me :(

I wonder if GGG will actually come around and respond to all the negative feedback due to the poor lootdrops if Grim Dawn lives up to the hype?

not necessarily, if a large portion of PoE players flock to Grim Dawn instead, GGG will either be forced to make the game more rewarding or fold.

Yep and they better watch out for Mario Party 11 too, if that starts garnering a lot of players, some of them might not play PoE instead XD

At the moment Poe is better than Grim Dawn but Grim Dawn is catching it and will soon surpass POE IMHO. Grim Dawn loot drops actually allow you to upgrade your items from drops unlike POE where trade is the key.


People say this but couldn't it just be because in Grim Dawn there is currently only one act? And the level is capped at 25. I mean obviously in the very beginning of the game upgrades come often, its the same in PoE.

Yes. Finding good gear too quickly drives people to get bored and quit the game. Buying at an exponentially faster rate than finding it, though, is a recipe for longevity.

True story.

While PoE and Grim Dawn fit the same genre, both games target different audiences. It is really difficult to compare them when each game has a completely different philosophy.


You are better off comparing Grim Dawn to Torchlight 2 and/or its spiritual successor, Titan Quest.


Still curious about how Charan's custom monster will turn out. :D

Yeah sure, no correlation between the success of Grim Dawn and PoE at all... no direct competition whatsoever :P

Played it, really good game.

Things the game already does better than PoE:
-combat animations and feel is few times better than poe. When you hit, they start flying, limbs and blood splashing all around.
-monster design and diversity even now is few time better done than in PoE
-drop rates of low level uniques is also a lot better balanced (yes, you gonna get them when you actually need them)
-there are some secrets on maps, or some other interesting things to find (special rare chests) , not like PoE, where there is nothing than mobs.

The thing the game doesnt do better, and will probably not whne it is finished in future:
-area design visually is not diverse, so most areas looks really similar (even act 2 is similar), also no randomization (or very little)
-skill design also not that diverse. A lot of skills are similar, both visually and mechanically.

Some other things:
-offline game, no lag
-no secured server, so cheating is easy
-support modding

Thats all for now
