@ Darks...
A quick "big picture" synopsis of the 1.4 patch:

The new 1.4 patch is 5GB and includes loads of improvements, including more generous and better loot drops, World Tier Controls (I started at Tier 2 just to get a feel for the difficulty), increased ammo capacity for players and shorter time to kill NPCs.I especially like that on the boss encounters (like the daily and weekly manhunt missions) the boss's entire squad arent all elites anymore.

Sweet, thanks Prez, I've been reading comments on steam and so far everyone seems to like the new changes. will give this a go when I get home.

News Comments > Morning Patches
1. Re: Morning Patches Oct 25, 2016, 10:21 Darks
 
I looked this over the other day and talked about it with a friend. I'm not so hip on these changes. they took a hard Nerf bat to all weapons across the board. they don't really talk about how much they changed the AI and the bullet sponging.

There was one comment about the AI being reduced but they made no mention of what that really means.

I don't see how you can fix the games bullet sponge effect by nerfing the shit out of the weapons. That made me cringe when I read it.

Ill give this patch a go later today. I'm not holding my breath by any means.

I did like that you can set the main worlds difficulty now, that was very interesting, because It means that you can now get good gear from the main world and not have to deal with the DZ and all the asshatery that goes on there.

I can pretty much say this, this is their last and final chance to fix the game, if its still a nightmare to kill things, then count this game completely dead.

Stand by for an update, or if anyone has had a chance to try this patch and has any info on the difficulty of the game now please let us know.

As an FYI, any games you have saved under the older 1.2 version are not compatible with the latest patch.

Thats good to know, I own this add on. but I did have a game going under the old version. but no great loss since this new patch is supposed to fix lot of things.

To be honest, it looks boring as fuck. That whole first part was scripted to hell too. The entire thing could be. Doesn't seem interesting to me one bit. Consoles have ruined gaming.

I dont know dude, the game play and especially some of the weapons reminded me a lot of Shogo: Mobile Armor Division. Another game for the life of me why Monolith never made a sequel is so baffling. that game was so good.

Monolith how could you abandon this game?

Have any of you actually played Path of exile till the "end game" content of mapping?

I find it the combat way more fun than diablo or grim dawn.

Ahh, yea I've played all the way through and thats about all I want to play again of this game. And I totally disagree with you on the combat. Grim Dawns Combat is way better and much more engaging.

I didn't either, and missed the 20% off. Have to wait for a sale.

That being said, not many more than 13 hours of playtime for majority of friends who have the first one. Only 1 person has more at 32 hours.

Not me, I bought this things months ago. Cant wait to get home and start the slaughter fest.

I've been trying to download the game for several days now, as it came with my new graphics card. Unfortunately the Windows Store is a fucking disaster - it'll get up to 30GB, then the download will simply stop; if I pause and resume then it starts the download from scratch. One time I got up to 60GB and when I restarted my computer the download restarted. Often it will download a couple of megabytes and then just freeze, doing the same thing if you restart it. I've tried WSReset, deleting the DeliveryOptimisation folder, restarts, etc - no luck.

Do NOT buy this game!!
If you thought GFWL was bad you haven't seen anything! I still cannot play a game that I own because the Windows Store is not fit for purpose.

But hey, Microshit thinks they know whats best for us gamers. They just keep making the same stupid mistakes. Win 10 is proof of that.

CIG is trying to pull THIS off in an MMO? With thousands of players in the same universe? No way. No. way. I want to be wrong about that but I am not.

I hope this is not some deranged poly-morphed game into an MMO. that is not what I originally signed up for when I funded this game. I wanted to have total control over my setting up my own server and playing with whomever I wanted to Coop. That is what myself and a few of my fiends all signed up for and what we were led to believe. I dont want to deal with assholes in a PVP environment.

If I wanted some Bullshit PVP space fairing game I would have signed up for EVE.

I think I speak for everyone on bluesnews, when I say this delay comes as a complete surprise.

Pretty much! Not that it matters any more, as I seriously doubt I'll play it when it arrives...they had their chance and blew it.



Spot on!!

Verno wrote on Oct 6, 2016, 13:28:
It's pretty well documented online but I'll give you my take. Paypal essentially operates like a bank without many of the regulations and protections of an actual bank. I've seen people lose their paypal accounts, paypal refuse to reimburse stolen funds and all sorts of shit over the years. One time a fundraiser that a buddy was running was suspended because paypal thought there was "suspicious activity" and just held the funds hostage while they investigated for months. I'm not a huge fan of their fees either. There's a few domains online dedicated to explaining why they suck with mountains of horror stories if you want more info.

I don't begrudge other people using Paypal, their money. I just can't really fault companies for trying to find an alternative payment processor.

Interesting, I dont know about the stories. I haven't really looked into them or know of any. but its good to know.

Thanks,

Paypal is kind of a shitty company so I don't really have a problem with them doing so.



Just curious Verno, why do you think Pay Pal is shitty?

I've never had any issues with them or getting my money back if theirs been an issue.

Who doesn't support Paypal at this point?

Let me put it this way, inXile CEO Brian Fargo is on the Advisory Board of Fig. I think this pretty much explains it all. he and a few other members from other game companies started this site up. Looks to me its all about greed and how much money they want for themselves.

According to their stats about where the money goes FIG gets 40 percent of any funding they take in. seems pretty sketchy to me.

And yea, I agree taking PayPal out of the loop also took me out of funding this game. Another one of those loop holes they are trying to avoid by not having to pay Pay Pals percentage.

Well, its a nice game if you dont expect a story driven experience. The microsoft store sucks ass tho Also they are hiding this game from potential buyers, I had to search for it even tho it was just out for a few days, no amount of browsing led me to it.

Now I had to reactivate my xbox live account from back when i was using an x360 and after a few more stupid hickups I have to sign in to Windows when I start up my PC with my xbox live credentials.

I didnt't even know thats a thing, that you make browser based setting and suddenly you cannot use your regular windows login anymore oO

Doesn't anybody test this stuff before its released to the masses?

Its Microishit, are you kidding? No one there test anything. They just dump it on the public and let the public do all the testing.
