News Comments > Pillars of Eternity Patch to Fix Stats
6. Re: Pillars of Eternity Patch to Fix Stats Apr 1, 2015, 11:28 Axis
 
Ya there's a ton of issues with the game, balance, bugs, etc. I think the real pull of PoEt is the memory-goggles of BG games, and the fact that the atmosphere is immersive.

People expect new releases to have balance issues and bugs, and this is no exception, it seems people hope it becomes much more than it currently is, and giving it an early pass.

Comparing this to D:OS on release, D:OS had far less pressing bug/issues, far greater character options and combat enjoyment,and the developers were truly "johnny on the spot" fixing stuff and keeping the masses informed.

I really enjoy PoEt (tho I've stopped till they fix the gamebreakers), but the initial "wow" factor pales in comparison to D:OS - and my nostalgia goggles are strong, so that's saying something.

Ya Verno hard is the way to go, once you get to the inn just make another 3 characters and you'll be good to go.

That way you can still recruit 2 "official" npc's as you play through without waiting to recruit a whole group.

After a person described to me Path of the Damned, I'm looking forward to trying it. It isn't just more HP/Damage, but new mobs to a point it supposedly gives you a more dynamic feel, fight to fight. Wish there was a way to change mid-game, I'm sure they'll be a mod/console/hack but not sure it will be in time.

Ya HS I agree -- I figured next playthrough will be my foray into that mode, hardcore min/max with most of the bugs ironed out and a mod or two hopefully.

DAOC was the last "great" pvp in an mmo, I hope C:U cuts through the crap and delivers - it's sorely needed: mmo's are so stale...

If your thinking of trying this game, I hope you like jumping puzzles and 8bit retro mini-games.

You're doing it wrong. very very wrong.

I personally don't love GW2, but it has it's place and its perfect for my kid, the most kid-friendly mmo out there without being *too* easy. He and his friends do nothing but pvp/wvw/1v1. They even level all their alts via pvp with tomes, tho he'll occasionally run dungeons for fun or mats or whatever.

The endurance system is perfect, didn't take long at all to warm up and love it.

The speed is ok, there should be one more faster option -- I still need to run speedhack at x2 first so I don't spend 90% of my time waiting for the scouting/stealing "party" to get where they're needed - again would be moot if the scouting/stealth was changed.

Couple serious technical game breakers, I'm just being extra careful to make many saves but haven't had any issues yet.

Not a fan of the stealth and scouting how it's setup, but maybe they'll rethink it eventually.

Vall, some places should be revisited once you've increased your party or leveled up or both. Stealth is per character and based on your rating and distance, so as long as you are behind/farther away you can do stealthy things even when your party is engaged.

I decided to make a party of 4, and pickup game npc's (ones with dialog and quests) along the way. I prefer smaller parties, so went with Hard mode to offset it and seems about a perfect balance so far.

And I still have no interest, am I missing something?

For me, I have no interest in the genre really. I can see the draw of "anything can happen" and the stakes (losing everything) but I just don't have time to be ganked by a bunch of 14 years olds that have playing 12 hours a day for months.

Is it this game, or the genre you don't like?

Mainly they way these types of games are set up -- I'm no fan of serverX longterm craft/build/destroy gameplay - meaning it's a pseudo home and economy where you focus all your time and effort. People in their isolated server worlds, any type of people playing or managing there, a limit of 32-64 people of which you'll usually see maybe a dozen on at any one time. For me it's a huge waste of time, compounded when ganked often - just not worth the effort.

I'd rather sink my time into getting better at my FPS of choice, farming better items in my persistent ARPG of choice, leveling/gearing in an mmo of choice (of which there hasn't been one I felt worth playing since wow, tho I occasionally log into GW2 for my son's sake) or trying a new game.

Speaking of which, new 1 month Path of Exile leagues - gotta get my new dude up there before Thursday!

Ya the generational shift has been quite obvious on steam the last 6 months or so - many games up top I would never consider buying, let alone paying the asking price.

I can't complain tho, glad they (or their parents) are buying. I do my best to "shift" them to quality PC games though, point out things to avoid with ports, etc - get alot of pissed off buyers remorse trolls or "don't know betters", but it's worth enlightening the many who do "get it".
