Key Points of Online Gaming in PoE:
-You create your own instance
-In this instance you can play alone or with up to 5 other people that are in your party
-Only in Town you will see other players that are not in your group
-There is a system to make your group Public and name it like you named games in Diablo2
-You can play with everyone on the world, from EU to US or Asia.
-If a EU guy Plays with a US guy, the guy who creates the instance will have a good ping the other will have a worse ping. So e.g. US player joins a new instance first the game will be hosted on US server for that moment.
-You can Chat with random people from everywhere
Itīs like Diablo2 but cooler, with real global play and a Town Hub instead of a Chat Hub.
