How many of the people that complain here about nerfs made their own builds and cleared end-game?

Close to zero ofc.

I was very excited about Abyss until I saw these patch notes. Not only did 2 of my league starter builds get messed with, but the XP nerf is just plain asinine. I have nearly 4k hours into POE according to Steam, have never had a lvl 100, simply because mapping is usually insanely boring and I can't force myself past high 80s- low 90s. Thanks GGG, you've now given me no reason to ever try and push further, which was actually going to be my plan this league.

Good job on creating more reasons for players to go play other games than to invest further into yours this patch. You created a lot of great hype, followed by several shots to your own foot, from the Black Friday mess to these patch notes. I truly loved this game and wanted to continue loving it and treating it as my main game, but you really, really make it hard to remain a fan GGG, unless we're extremely, extremely patient or a masochist.

This. All this.

The Black Friday sale was another instance of GGG telling the 99% to bend-over and take it. It didn't really matter much to be honest since it's just MTXes, but the principle was still the same. It reflects the principle of this development manifesto as well: give love to the 1% and give the shaft to everyone else.

Granted, I completely understand that some people just enjoy PoE (I do too), and go on their merry way with enjoying PoE regardless of all the hate in this thread. That's fine, no arguments from me. But keep in mind that some who "just enjoyed" PoE and were in the same boat as you are now getting chaffed a bit by GGG.

Will I continue to play PoE? Probably. And I'll most likely still enjoy it. But will I bother trying to "collect them all" in challenge leagues, or continue to buy supporter packs from GGG? Probably not. And I probably will end up spending more time in other games (BTW, I exclusively played PoE prior to this OP by Chris).

It's not a matter of breaking the game or ruining my experience, it's a matter of respect, or rather lack of it from GGG to their 99% casual player base. And don't kid yourself: those here on the forums and in the races and ladders are not even 1% of the total player base. For those nameless, faceless masses, they'll either 1.) not care about any of this or 2.) feel rather slighted by GGG, to the point of affecting their interest in supporting GGG.

Only time will tell. I just hope GGG stops shooting themselves in the foot over with this blatant (accidental?) disrespect of their 'filthy casuals'.

Chris is wayy to gentle with you.

All leagues should be wiped and lvl 100 should be made almost impossible.

the xp needed should be made not 40% more, but 1000 more..
Making the game ,,casual friendly,, was the biggest cancer Poe has ever received..

In fact it should be made alot harder. Just like in the begining. Just what we liked at first place..

Personally I'd rather not be groped and shafted in the first place. Perhaps that's something you enjoy?

We can do back to de-sync nightmares if you're masochistic enough. Yeah, that would really be wonderful, huh?

Ikr. And remove the support gems and enchantments. And the potions.

That's the point. As an INTP i love to analyze shit. These changes are for me godsends because now, I can come up with new builds, that don't rely on broken mechanics, that trivialise game content and we finally might see a switch to more methodical/focus gameplay, then pushing one button and obliterating everything. I played League of Legends for 5 years and never copy someone build. Even with nerfs i always managed to find an efficient build to play with. Im sure i will found one here too. Not ultra-meta dupa OP, but reliable, cheap builds, that allow me to push through end game content. Yes it might take me few days maybe weeks, but that's the point of theorycrafting and application. If you just blindly copy something someone already created, where is challenge in that? Yes, you can be inspired by people who managed to find new things, but don't copy them.

One thing GGG should do though is listen, not only to the Top players, but to the majority of their player base (and I'm pretty sure the majority has some desire to reach level 100). I mean GGG, do you guys want to make a game for 5 people or do you want to be able to sell supporter packs and MTX?

Cause I'm pretty sure 5 people aren't going to support all that. Nerfing XP doesn't make the game any fun for me. So you satisfy 5 people who can do it really fast and are bored/have nothing else to do.

Well, there are tons of players, who want to reach 100, but already struggle. Why not make a Hardcore Hardcore league???? That way all the bored players can leave, and spend as much time as they want grinding to 100.

How bout that GGG?

Instead, you decide to destroy any hope of your average player base getting their first level 100 character, all for the sake of a very select few.

Interesting to note, that your biggest critics of these nerfs are players that have bought multiple supporter packs. These guys keep you afloat. Should probably listen to them.

How would you know? You weren't even around int he beginning. And most of the player base does not share your opinion. There is plenty of hard content in the game. Based on the challenges you competed in Harbinger, you didnt even do any hard content in the first place.

So very, very glad that GGG butchered their own Black Friday sale, causing me to spend money on a Dauntless Founder's pack instead, which was a great sale by comparison.

Guess it's also a good thing Dauntless has a patch coming out same day as Abyss starts, so I'll have something better to do with my time when I'm getting DC'd on every area transition and portal like the last two leagues and both races.

Stellar freaking job.


Oh, thanks for the info regarding Dauntless. SWOOOSH! hear that GGG? That's the sound of my money not going to PoE and into another game.

One less donut for Chris.

How does it feel to get nerfed in the wallet? OHHHHHH! I bet that pinches a little?
