DDE vs DD1
I feel just a bit gipped right now. I love Dungeon Defenders. I played it since before the new classes and the Eternia Crystals dlc (Not a long time, but still) and I bought nearly every piece of dlc. I'm unhappy with DDE and here's why.

1. Player migration
As people move to DDE from DD1, it depopulates our already low level of servers. I feel like it's either pay $20 to be in the cool kid's club again, or stay here and watch DD1 die.
2. Pricing
For a new ui and 4 new maps, that's not worth $20 to me. I would have paid $5, maybe even $10 for the new maps, but the ui update isn't worth anything to me. It's massively overpriced, in my opinion.
3. Why
I feel like with DD2 looming around the corner, DDE is just a reskinned cashgrab to milk the dregs of money out of DD1 players' wallets. I dumped a lot of money into DD1, and I feel a bit insulted.

If you feel I'm wrong, please don't just say I'm wrong; say why. I want to know why I'm wrong, not just that I am.

DDE is only $6...

True, but it won't always be that cheap. It should have been a map pack dlc and a ui update, not an entirely new version. That divides the playerbase and damages both games' replayability and online.

Ive paid for dde, played a little, come to the same conclusions as your self, and others (like screw leaving behind the time ive invested in dd1), I bought it on the basis I wanted to give trendy back some money fo rthe time ive spent on DD, however, Ive no intention of playing dd2 now, I feel gipped I didnt get moonbase, even after the gits said it was coming to me on twitter.

so boohoo, but alas. Im just a paying customer that has pretty much bought all the content (outside fo steam sales too) they have released, that wont be buying anymore, unless its dd1 related

Yeah, I'll play DD2, but forget spending money when this is how they treat our wallets.

The sad thing is, DD2 looks pretty meh so far (This is based on the Pre-alpha build, so it's gonna change before it's released) It just looks like a third-person moba mixed with Sanctum 2. But I guess that's what you get when Trendy doesn't develop actual Game :/

I'll tell you one good thing about DDE

It made me re-install DD1 and it made me introduce this game to my friends, now i'm gonna help them beat it and re-visit this awesomeness

Actually, if you've checked in lately, they completely abandoned the Moba aspect and are now completely focusing on the Tower Defense.

I'm miffed at DDE because you can't change skin colors, only their starting outfit and hair colors :( I'm pretty annoyed with that
