I would not like to be in GGGs shoes to be honest.

Probably by choices made over the time they created this conflict between power creep and access to currency / items (no-lifers rushing and crushing the content in parties, hoarding wealth) while still keeping the interest of the casual players.

In PoE there is no real story, reward or any other motivation for players to slow down, not in leveling and not in the end-game. Grinding is maybe fun if it's rewarding, and it's only rewarding if you kill 1,000s of monsters in parties or if you manage to reliably survive lab traps and Izaro's attacks (and actually like Lab).

No-lifers can afford to play non-meta because party / endless time spent and getting the rewards.

For us casuals playing solo, not playing meta is a non-option. Finishing (again, duh) leveling after few days, then kind of wondering around in low / mid level maps and low-level delve, without real chance to go anywhere further, without feeling of progress or being rewarded with some exciting loot, that becomes dull and feels like waste of time. And I am talking about playing the strong builds. No casual I guess would want to waste their time on experimental / niche purpose build which falls off rather quickly after act 10 without substantial investment.

And I have no idea how I would go about to solve this.
I know it's not true, but it could be.
All i have to say is” blood magis + essense worm ring = work ? “
I fear i cant run 2 auras that way. But we will see upcomking weekend

no such thing, behind all the nice words you put there and try to put some "common sense" if you want truth here it goes:

GGG writes which class/skill will be fotm in every league.. that's the end of it.

Sure you can be nice like you did and say this things but lets not joke around there's plenty of adults here.. just because they roleplay as if they were 12 just for the sake of bad trolling on the internet doesnt make them actually 12.


Based on the way I see people conduct themselves in threads such as this I would question if they are an adult in any way except for their age. The game changes and evolves, things are reworked, re-balanced, added, removed, buffed and nerfed, that is how live games work and people need to understand and accept this.

I do believe GGG shifts the meta both directly and indirectly as a result of changes they make but I fail to see how that is a bad thing. Some people would like their build and the mechanics, items and skills it uses to remain completely untouched, others demand changes and reworks but become annoyed when it doesn't happen immediately or in they way they see fit.

What I'm getting at here is that some members of this community do not seem to employ reasonable, logical thinking when discussing or forming views about changes made to POE, they believe that GGG should implement only what they see fit, creators vision be damned. This is not a healthy outlook nor is it a particularly mature one. Do these same people send abrasive and angry letters to Coca Cola when they change their recipe? Do you suppose they complain loudly at the customer service desk in their local supermarket because a product that was on sale last month is no longer on sale? I think not.

GGG certainly don't always make the best decisions, the implementation of Synthesis was a fine example of this however they are genuine, passionate, committed devs who take feedback on-board but who also have a vision for their game. They are a shining example of how to create and monetise a F2P game without making it P2W and have also delivered one of the finest ARPG's in existence today. The amount of negativity exhibited by this community at times is astounding, people genuinely believe GGG are out to ruin their own game and everyone's fun along with it, they simply cannot comprehend that they are just changes being made to try and improve and balance the game.

can you add +20% to cast and attack of vaal oversoul in act2?
my english sux.

At least some of the community aren't so fragile. Though, tbf, there have been some positive comments in this forum thread as well (unfortunately we can't judge levels of support here, since this site lacks an upvote system).

5.Abyss jewels nerf omg ?
6. Energy shield builds nuked by passives and dense fossils nerf, especialy there will be no synthesis item anymore in Legion league


THE STORY OF MELEE BUFF
Chris: How to make melee buff ?
employe 1 . Lets nerf most popular caster ascendacy from last league like : Occultist Trickster Elementalist
employe 2 : and lets make some shitty changed in melee ascendaces like slayer gladiator and berserker so they will need time to figure out that all is bullshit
Chris: Very well very well

patch notes fell rlly bad i dont see melee buff.... only shady changes and mostyl all is about they force u to play Melee becasue of caster es nerfs

If they make buff they should make buff not do shady thing like increase some values there and nerf another ones ... becasue thats make confusion and sometimes take ages to figure out if thats was actually buff or Tricky step thats my Opinion
