Path of Exile cant even compare to d2. D2 was good back then becouse it was nothing else. Do I need to remind you guys that back then we competed with bots and people who bought runes for real money and we had no chance? DO I need to remind you how bad it was to get killed in pvp by idiots who invested real money into characters? And then there were dupes... perfect items made to just destroy every other character in pvp.
D2 was a decent game but you cannot simply compare that with the complexity and diversity of path of exile. Actually there is no game in the present day that can do. Poe has some problems too but is way damn better then d2.
but those problems were easily manageable
! on ladder start bots had no chance against an actual player, so you would just get a few k fgs in the first few days, and that would be enough to fully gear a pvp char later, thanks to those same bots which lowered the prices
also in pvp it didnt matter if someone had a fully pimped char, as an experienced player would always win with something that cant be absorbed (good choices were nec, hdin, DuDu etc). i would slap an eternity on a hdin or even a sorc, get those magic immune kurast bazaar yetis, and then proceed to literally tank any cheater (95% of the time those were tmc/aa hdins) while shittalking to them, and in 10 years of d2, it hasnt happened to me ONCE that they realize they can simply smite me out of the revives, which for someone who can duel would be a no brainer
cheaters in poe would be much more of a problem because items matter much more than skill, but there are no cheaters because no one gives a shit about poe duels in the first place in order to lose money to cheat
