Unsaid things aren't "pretty obvious".

Being smarmy about it doesn't change the fact.
Remove lab for the love of god.. its tedious, boring, and frustrating (2)
Whoever developed the lab should be forced to run it over...and over...and over...and...
Still in the alpha stage, but at least build diversity isn't an issue: https://wolcengame.com/home/
Well i guess i was the only one to enjoy labyrinth as it is now.
Hf :)
For new players Labyrinth is a complete waste of time. One small mistake with the instant HC style of death is absolutely dumb. Many new players are still trying to figure out mechanics and understand how bad the burst damages hurt. I understand that there has to be a penalty. If you die then that area gets RESET, no more trying to memorize each phase of it just to become a bot through it.

The largest and simplest change is to a maximum of three areas, obtain key, open door, fight Izaro for each class style one for DEX, STR and INT based classes. There are some locations that ranged excel and other sections where they get nerfed so hard that it is pointless to do. The Lab lasts a day thing has to go as well. If there is a set of maps or areas that are just not setup in a way to solve then you waste time even attempting the runs. Traps are just stupid in the amount of stack damage they apply.
The Lab is total garbage, no matter how you try to dress it up. You put lipstick on a pig, and it's still a pig in the end.
The Lab, making a great game good since 2016.

LOL, yes, ditto. Thank You! I am not sure how some people get off on this "shaming" shit. This other person commented "the Lab is neither fun nor challenging..." ugh, speak for yourself, dude. Then don't bloody do it.

I agree, it was not obvious what will be happenign to the Offerings. However, with the mentioning that the Sarn Entrance to the Plaza would now act like a crafting bench, I wonder if Offerings will be the currency used to open the different Tiers of difficulty.

Also, on my mind... GGG might have used this announcement as an opportunity to coin new names for "Normal / Cruel / Merc / Uber" Labs... ;) They are probably waiting for the community's creativity for this.
The problem i see with the lab, is there is alot of loading screens, there is RAIN, and it is as punishing as HC is, thats why people dont like it, the idea of the lab isnt that bad, but several things makes it one of the worst experience on the game.
In my opinion they should remove it or give it a complete rework (from scratch).

Disagree. I like the Lab. I think it is fun. I think the Ascendancy Points are worth running it. Sure, areas could use improvement, esp. w/ lag and certain trap combos, but overall, I think it adds value to the game. PoE lets you choose what areas of the game you really want to spend a lot of time on. It's an ARGP so the grind and RNG is all core to the spirit of that.
I really don't get the hate for the lab to be honest. It's actually a piece of content that's different and refreshing, unless you have an abysmal build it's 10-20min x3 for a character while the benefit is generally immense for the character.

No one is forced to play the lab outside of that, 1hr max per character is sweet FA in the grand scheme of things.

People just want this game on easy mode, it's stupid. I play exclusively hardcore and I've died heaps of times in the lab due to being an idiot on the traps or underestimating Izaro's buffs etc, but generally that was my fault and I should have been more careful.

95% of builds that aren't crazy hipster snowflakes can do lab fine in an inconsequential amount of time.

GGG's changes look like they are going to make the lab less of a chore (for those that hate it) while still keeping it relevant.

If you want all build bonuses for no effort go play another ARPG that does it.
