what the fuck went wrong?
>>
too rewarding at low levels

too unrewarding at high levels
>>
>>474143979
Minmaxing is really bad in general, making it your endgame goal that resets every so often is simply stupid
>>
I'm impressed people still play this skinner box
>>
>>474143979
Games to easy.
Mobs pose almost no threat unless you're paying attention to that "one" mob you might randomly find that can potentially one shot you.

Spam 1 ability, spam movement ability.
Hit the right potion when you need. Repeat for 100 hours. No thanks.
>>
>>474143979
the core gameplay loop is really boring so they have to add new shit to maintain a base of players, which makes the game full of overlapping cruft
>>
>>474143979
oh yeah and betrayal was made entirely out of garbage that should all be purged from the game.
>>
>>474143979
Boring story
Boring world
Boring visuals
Confusing items
Tone of the game too cynical

*plays poe*

I really liked it, most fun I've had in POE in quite some time.

>>474144089
This will kill the game though. Granted power creep has made so even the hardest content in the game is easy, but that's a separate problem. Glacier Spam being the best way to play the game is shameful.
>>
>>474143979
Game is suffering immensely from systems bloat.
>>
>>474143979
they lost sight of what made the game fun and now all loot except the few super rare ones feel insignificant
>>
Coming from Legion being my first time playing through the game:
>First ~9 acts are braindead easy, this is really my biggest complaint
>Ridiculous amount of crap loot dropped
>Tons of systems that you are introduced to throughout the game but cant really use until epilogue (Zoo, Mine, etc.)
>Passive bonuses aren't always clear with what they apply to

That being said I still enjoyed the skill and talent system enough to beat the game and do some of the epilogue
>>
Having the first month of the league be super unstable and bug riddled for two leagues in a row is really shitty.

But overall I liked Legion way more than Synthesis.
>>
>>474143979
>game gets objectively gooder and the best in its genre
>'what went wrong' threads start to show up to reinforce the fact

thats how you know a game is based
>>
>>474149369
Nah, POE is going to shit. It's following the D3 power creep path of just buffing the shit out of crap every patch.
>>
>>474148954

In fairness:

>the campaign is the tutorial, and people can brickwall themselves out of finishing the campaign if they build like shit
>You can filter any loot you don't want, there's numerous pre made filters made by the community already
>Those are older league mechanics which got introduced to the baseline, which I agree are kinda shitty when you only find them rarely
>Just look that up on the wiki
>>
they refuse to slow the fucking game down and that breaks everything else

did you install a loot filter?
>>
>>474147721
I started playing again for the first time in like 4 years and god damn the game drops yellow items about 10x more often than it used to. I used to grab them all and sell them for shards or whatever but now I just leave them unless they are really good
>>
>>474149579
and to keep that in check they added 5 invul phases per boss I hate it
>>

Fucking newfag

Just play diablo 2. There are bunch of private servers and mods.

path of diablo
resurgence
slashdiablo
median
there is some 1.09 mod and server as well
>>
as somebody who has played PoE on and off since the beta but taking breaks between major patches I really can't see myself bothering to play it anymore. a lot of people complain about the power creep and sure thats valid criticism of the game, but honestly my gripe is that everything just feels fucking awful. all of the melee skills outside of new cyclone are just atrocious.

Tencent gained full ownership and is now steering the ship.
