            He's the CEO. It's obvious that both games are created around his tastes with some leeway for the audience to make it more casual. PoE2 is gonna be a lot slower because Chris (and assume the company majority as well) want the gameplay to be less spastic. You just wouldn't see a direct promise like that from other ARPGs.

            For better or worse, PoE2 will have soul. That's all I want to see.

            its not new. Back when I was playing in 2022 it meant that the game has essentially won: you are a zombie playing it non-stop for weeks, months, years. Possible when you are younger than 20 but destructive and worse than heroin in your late 20s. The sad thing that noone wants to hear is that the drug addicts we made fun of in the past are now gaming addicts. The time gaming takes away from you is a price to pay you cannot afford.

      Just to play a devil's advocate here, since I played PoE for years and don't give a shit about it anymore nor PoE2, let's go through your points:
      >people that want to play a game without 17,000 scrambled and bloated league mechanics
      Then, why are they keeping all the old league content from PoE1 and implementing it in PoE2?
      >no they aren't
      Oh, they are. They've mentioned it a million times in the interviews at this point.
      >currencies, systems piled on top of each other
      It will still have several different currencies and systems overlapping, hell, they are even porting the MTX from PoE1.
      >Also gameplay that involves more than screen warping one button map clears
      In the beginning, sure. But, it will become the same kind of mess as PoE1 eventually, because GGG doesn't believe in putting hard caps on even things that should have them (like movement and action speed).
      I'm sure it will take 15 minutes to kill every boss in the beginning, until people find some build that deletes them, and then GGG will once again in the position to either start hamstringing player power, or just let the game devolve into the same ADD mess as PoE1 did.
      This "sequel" was the single dumbest fricking thing they've ever did, and both PoE1 and this new project have both suffered from that decision.

      Poe basically has an extreme top end for builds thats insane, you can't die, clear the screen in a button and move very fast, but it needs to be that way because 99% of drops are worthless and the game is best played while watching or listening to something else. The game is also powercrept to all hell because of its over 10 year iterative meta
      This game so far makes everything much slower, but still has the same philosophy with low value drops

    Ive seen one boss which is a woman who uses her aborted baby!? as a minion.
    Ive noticed that they got rid of women on the health and mana bar and replaced it with scantily clad men.

    I don't know how to feel about the abortion boss fight, but I am pretty upset about the removal of the women on the side bars. Oh and I know that they added women but not on the health bars and they've shrunken the size to be barely visible.

      The current dudes on the UI are Sin and Innocence, the only gods that side with you after the PoE1 campaign, and you had killed Solaris and Lunaris.

    Good question, I've been sort of tapped out of PoE for well over a year now.
    I'll give them a final chance with PoE2 but I get the feeling they'll just hang it over everyone's heads as a sort of hope that the game will improve rather than actually doing much with it.
    When it does finally come out there's no way it'll manage to fully fix the game by itself, there's just too much wrong with it that built up over time, or at least there was when I quit.

          So basically if I get to add rolling to Grim Dawn you drop everything?
          Consider the following: PoE2 wont have more abilities than GD, specially if we consider that GD has more build variety potential than even PoE.
          Itemization-wise PoE might look better, but its unoptimized as frick.
          You'll get Ruthless, but it looks pretty. If you want that, GD literally has you covered, and you have more and more variety if you decide to mod it.
          just
          that being said I admit that no endgame compares to PoE, tho bearing in mind PoE2 will have its own endgame chances are it will end up being Last Epoch's endgame but worse.

            Grim Dawn with rolling would just be Grim Dawn with rolling. Every single enemy, encounter, mechanic and system in the game would have to be redesigned to make it like PoE2.

      D4 is a bit too fast for my taste (this doesn't make it hard, I just don't like zoom zoom gameplay), also the dungeons are very claustrophobic and the assets are copy pasted in them, like all of the walls/doors are identical and so on.

        Guy who played melee in the recent test bricked his character because he was taking +5 dex and Int early on and lacked the strength to equip more than a single strength support gem on his abilities.

      What's the point of even having a skill tree if your location in it won't determine the stats you'll get?

      • 4 weeks ago

        It's not guaranteed that this is the final iteration. They have been changing shit constantly.
        And secondly, even if your core attributes can be whatever the frick you want, everything else is still limited by your start location. Want something on the other side of the tree? You're going to have to waste a bunch traveling to it instead of taking more proximal stuff.

        It's so you can "glass cannon" yourself in one direction. If FF10 did it, (it didn't) you could be sure others would've taken it.

        If anything, the Sphere Grid system is the major problem for PoE1-2, because you need to open a third party tool to actually fricking plan/build around it. In FF10, you can bumble your way through the grids and eventually make a strong party. You can't really do that in PoE even with respecs.

      I assumed W = north, D = east, etc. But the people who played the game seemed to say W = forward as in, wherever your mouse is pointing.
      If thats the case I hope thats configurable, because thats pretty brain damaged.

      Nah, the old audience likes d2. All my poe liking friends are 30+ and aren't sold on isometric twinstick combo based skills.
      That exepect us to use 4-5 main skills for comboing while wasding and flasking. I guess we'll see. Game looks visually nice, and the itemization and skills should likely be good still.

    They fricked up miserably, only reason the game was even worth playing in Affliction was because of the abyss exploit with wisps.
    The game peaked during Ritual league, then they just relentlessly nerfed and patched all the fun out of the game.

      Peak PoE was Invasion HC league, Tempest, Perandus and Legacy. Everything after that was just a slow painful slide into the toilet. Game has been shit for a long time, people just don't want to admit it.

        The game peaked during Ritual league, then they just relentlessly nerfed and patched all the fun out of the game.

        The moment "mazed" was introduced into the dictionary and became clear that there are people with 15k hours playtime, it became clear that the game is no longer about having fun but about doing digital drugs. And the nerfs made it even less fun, which is the worst about the whole thing: the changes to shit kind of reminded the drug addicts to stop and that they cannot hide from the outside world forever. You cannot be a NEET forever. If the drugs were good, the game did not have all the moronic decisions and shit, the NEET could be mazed forever, and many still are lost, but for some, a 10 minute mute because I told a joke in 2022 was the call to uninstall. Back before 2020 the mutes were literally for saying Black person in 1488 but in 2022 they couldn't even keep the drugs good enough to create a social circle of addicts.

          The current playerbase is just too zoomerish. When people talk about Ritual league, this was the time you could have a name like "TheVaccinator" or the Julius Evola fan who made all his characters starting with Evola or the 200 years together promoter and many other based people.
          It may be /misc/, but people were based and were were drug addicts talking about politics with edgy memes. These days, zoomers are mazed in a souless game with others too afraid to make jokes. Game is basically reddit.

        1. Lightning conduit elementalist, specifically the Waggle variant with hydrosphere and not orb of storms
        2. Slayer Discharge with Ralakesh's and replica Restless ward, PoEDan build from Tota.
        3. Bonezone Jugg, Goratha variant.

        The LC character had probably my most interesting death ever, died at 99 to an essence mob with Malediction Aura on a curse+reflect map. I had 110% less reflected damage taken but the Malediction reduced that to like 95%, Malediction is usually not a problem because it only affects cursed targets but I was in a ele weakness map. Died instantly.

      We don't know. Best we can say is "probably."
      In a decade, it will turn into that by virtue of it being led by a bunch of clowns, but in the interim, it could be anywhere from "fairly slow" to "super fricking fast as always" in endgame. They've intentionally avoided showing us anything endgame because they want people to think it's slow and methodical in its nature. What it actually is will remain unknown until release.

      I knew this was coming. Back in the original sale there was some clause about the OG 3 still being under contract for however many years afterwards. We initially believed they'd try and shove PoE2 out the door before then so they could ride off into the sunset. Now looks like they gotta kick the can down the road some more.
      Thankfully I haven't given a frick about PoE since Expedition. And I really have 0 interest in playing shitty isometric amalgamation of Soulslikes and PoE. GGG eats as much dick as Blizzard.
