Sirus fight is making me quit POE

I'll prolly come back next league when they fix things . Just attempted Sirius and yes I went blindly, but even with the Elder I did manage to understand what was going on and actually think through the fight...

Now this guy on the other hand, you touch a cloud you die, you try to go around them you waste 2 flasks before reaching the boss.

No adds to refill , or at least I didn't see them.

1 Shot mechanic that requires you to escape some kind of maze, that you barely see and happens so fast that it doesn't matter you will just scratch a damn cloud and die.

The fight is not hectic nor hard nor skill based. Is just a stupid fuck fest that requires some bullshit build or something special.

That's just unfair.
What a complete and total fuckfest!

Actually there is a military term for this exact condition that GGG finds itself dealing with.

F.U.B.A.R.

Fu**ed up beyond all repair or recall.
Remove the storms from this fight and make Sirius harder, nobody can honestly think that the storms are an enjoyable mechanic. It's like a F*** you mechanic put there because you realised that the boss was too easy.

Three Sirus fights, two ended this way. Either make the storms smaller or remove them completely, GGG. Please.
remove the stomrs, make him harder and change the color of the floor, plz GGG.

another option is making a brand new boss and we all agree that current version never existed.
feedback from a player who attempted the fight once or twice?

I fought him probably 9 or 10 times before finally taking him down.

Most of his toe to toe mechanics are easily avoidable depending on where he is and the great equalizer is being able to navigate the storms which is why most players are dying - I think.

As much as I hate the storms, and they ARE terrible design, you kinda did this to yourself.

You had ample time to go right, instead, you took it directly to the door...
I've had 3 attempts at the boss so far. All 3 involved me dying to effectively invisible ground degen in under a second, followed by losing all 5 portals to a combination of storms and ground degen. without even getting a chance to attack the boss again.

Whats really upsetting is how this makes me feel more than anything, when I was learning every other boss in the game deaths felt like I was being punished for mistakes I could learn from. All Awakener has taught me is that my eyes are not good enough to engage in the end game of PoE anymore.

I'm posting this today because I was so demoralized from my recent experience with the fight that I can not bring myself to run maps, which is shocking to me as I have played this league more than any other in this time frame and I was truly enjoying myself.

Bro, that's exactly what I'm feeling right now. Just lost all portals trying to kill Sirius.
The most upsetting thing is I don't see any way to improve myself, besides just some super expensive items. I'm not dying to clouds, but when I get to the boss, I don't have hp, flasks, or both.
I don't even want to play this game anymore until something is done, it's super frustrating. It's like my favorite game was robbed from me.

Hey exactly the same way .

People keep saying that "you have no mechanical skill" , "what can you do thinking is not for everyone".

But for every game I played, there were some death mechanics tied to it that you could see coming or at least learn how to counter it...Right now at this point of time, Sirius is just a fuck fest.

The mechanics are simple : Avoid the clouds ( if somehow you get near them, well too bad, get a thing that replenishes your flasks somehow), stand under him. Once in the arena just run like a bozo is you are necromancer, if you are ranged run like a bozo shoot when you can, if you are melee ( well that's your problem , why did you run melee in the first place ?) . In the maze phase, just be careful for the amber path, prolly die in 3 layer maze for being too slow...In the madness phase just be careful for the special one that shoots.

Pretty much this is all the mechanics he has ( see me smart, me understood fast mechanics)...So why do people cannot execute it properly ? To me it seems pretty stupid mechanic, why can't we execute it ?

Because there is always shit on the screen that takes your life in 1 seconds.

I don't have chaos resistances but does it improve with chaos resistance or you die in 1 seconds with that also.

The question is merely so I don't buy a second pair of gear just for one boss.

Stupid boss...And any game that get's scaled just with fuck fest damage spikes is not really a good game.
