The game is free. The skin doesn't give any advantage.
It's a tip, so that you can throw money at the devs. Literally nothing else.
There's nothing wrong here, nothing to defend.

Catering to streamers is just extra bullshit icing on the bullshit cake that PoE has become. That alone would make any sane person boycott PoE now.

You either don't know how marketing works or you are against the concept of marketing.

Let me make a different analogy.

If you have a huge crowd at the door and you had an actor who was paid to be in a commercial and who had it in their contract that they only had to be there from 3 to 5, and that whatever footage you got was all you got... would you make them wait in line?

No... because that's obscenely stupid

These streamers setup a contract to do marketing for them and only had to be there for a set amount of time, and, based on what I'm reading, if they spent two hours in the queue that counted.

Criticize them for not saying "two hour of actual in-game gameplay" and that's fair. But this ain't that.

Epic Games Exclusives are like Adam Sandler Sony movies. They're so whored out that they're complete profitable before release. To the developers at least.

Might be handing out donuts.

I haven't made it outside, but here is my performance:

2060, 1440P, 8 year old i7. (Massive change coming once inventories of the latest greatest are in place)

With DLSS off and with their given settings for my system which is a combo of med-high, with high be a max setting in many important things, aka looks good.
55 Frames.

With DLSS at Quality, the best setting of 4 it goes to 75 solid and that is what I have my system locked to, so I'll need to turn that off to see what it pulls in full, that said I'm at 98% GPU usage and 85% CPU usage. So it's running pretty efficient. My memory is crap so it holds me back some as well.

So far so good, couple very minor keybind nitpicks.

My ole man 1060 1050P same settings no DLSS on that, he's pegged at his locked 60 at least indoors.
My son in the same boat 1070, 1080P, newer i5, unsure what he's getting but at least 60...

I took Corpo, ole man took Street Punk and we have totally different starts, that's good.

EDIT:
Keybinds O=Inventory and J=Quest Log and can't be remapped.
Going outside, oh yeah hit. went from 35 to 55 fps using DLSS Balanced mode, lifesaver.

You also can't rebind F.

O, F, and J.

Meaning anyone who despises the "as far away from the center of the keyboard as possible" WASD basically has no realistic option.

ALSO... I've experienced the "controller rumble doesn't turn off" bug more than once.

I'd like to personally send a death glare to EVERY individual who angrily demanded that CDPR push this out with bugs cuz WE WANT OUR TOYS NOW DAMMIT WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

"It's done when it's done" should be the mantra every developer is comfortable with.

As if I needed more reason to bed so cynical about humanity... there are Bluesnews viewers who, even at this stage, clearly understand neither the point or benefit of Early Access.

If you play a STORY based game in EA and get sick if the story once full release comes out... that's on you.

If you don't understand why, in SOME cases, having thousands of paying beta-testers is better than paying for dozens of beta testers... I don't know what to tell you, that's beyond me.

As for the whole "rambling blah blah" whatever... You've clearly not beta tested in your life. Any remotely competent developer will use trello and a well-moderated discord.

And plenty of people enjoy INTERACTING with the developers. I'm one of them.

And... by supporting the devs by paying for something early, I not only get to interact with the developers (I've legit made close friendships this way), I usually get the game for less than if I waited.

I sincerely am floored by the fact that there are people HERE that don't understand such a basic, common gaming reality.

I'm exhausted

Uh, no they have not. And 6 years past target with no end in sight isn't just "unpredictability", that's either a scam or piss poor management. And those games got made for a 1/3rd, or even less, and that's the entire production and a massive marketing budget to boot. The guy should be selling manure instead because he sure is full of it.

Absolutely NO game on that list was anywhere near the "past original promise date" that SC has reached.

Meanwhile, Apple continues to abuse it's monopoly position.

Just hours after the reveal of Apple’s new services bundles, the tech giant has already taken criticism for evidently favoring its own apps over those with which it directly competes in its App Store.
Spotify, which has been feuding with the tech giant for years now over its hefty App Store fees, quickly seized on the opportunity to raise Apple antitrust concerns.

But is it illegal? Meh. It's WRONG, no doubt. But Illegal, I don't think so. Apple owns the operating system and hardware. Like any platform, they create and govern the rules; rules companies agree to when they sign up for an account. So it is less a monopoly and more like a massive and unethical conflict of interest.
It's textbook anti-trust. It's why the studio system was dismantled in the 1950s. Just because the Trump JD doesn't prosecute doesn't mean it's not illegal.
As long as Billy Barr is at the helm don't expect nuthin to change. Shit, they might even get immunity from prosecution and a preemptive pardon.

This thread couldn't go more than 20 comments before it derailed into political things. I'm done.

It's almost like discussing what constitutes monopolies, trusts, and cartels is... somehow... a political topic!!!

Would someone kindly explain what's so bad about the game?

Right if you just want to play the traditional sport with the team as is, just go there and play. That said, man each year they jimmy up the main menu's more and more to the point it isn't even that easy to find the traditional game. This also is like NBA 2k, while people seem to only focus on the Build your team from cards/micro trans, you can completely ignore that and play like you could in 1995, but with better graphics and still better mechanics, rose glasses or not, they are overall.

Then the repeated claim of it's only an updated roster, it is more than that but a lot of it is in areas non-traditional. But hey if people want to buy a version with updated rosters to stay current, why not? Reasonable and there are some gameplay changes each year, but it's an actual sport so it is going to be nuanced changes on the field. I went to a REAL ball game once in 2010 and then again in 2011, fuckers played the same game, no updates to it other than roster changes. It also cost me 2x of what the retail video game cost to, each time.

And the fact that they routinely and predictably take out "features" every few years just to bring them back a few years after that. Or like one year, about 15 years ago, they were touting "we recorded thousands of animations to give you the most realistic looking game ever" and then, the very next year "our new animation engine creates catches and tackles and stuff so that every moment is special and unique" and then a year or two later "we have thousands of individual animations"

Dozens of things like this. Every... single... year...

It's called pattern recognition.

GamesAsAService has been around vaguely 15 years. Madden should have been one of the founding games of subscription-based gaming.

But no... 60 bucks. Every... year... for recycled shit.

That's why most decent human beings who DO pay for Madden (or NCAA back when it existed) rarely did so more than once every 3-5 years. If you were someone who paid 60 bucks for it EVERY YEAR... you were undeniably part of the problem.

Correct me if I'm wrong but haven't the courts all but killed municipal broadband? I get that some municipalities have it but it's far from being common.

It's usually not the courts. It's usually telecom lobbyists pushing state-level laws banning the cities and towns from setting them up.

This.
The biggest legitimate concern opposition reason is that it is financially risky for taxpayers because current ones mostly operate in the red.
The biggest political reason is because it "hampers the free market". (As if lack of choice / competition didn't already hamper it)

That said... since most people in the country think that broadband should be treated as a utility... it either needs to be regulated like one, or allow municipal broadband as a choice (Not sure how that would work tax-wise).

I have zero sympathy for the carriers / ISPs in this country... and I'm usually on the "fiscal conservative" side of things.

And one of the only California laws I agree with, would be an non-defanged version of their privacy law. FSCHK all these @sshat Carriers, Big Tech search and social media, and Marketing scumbags on the internet tracking everything you do without your permission. That shit needs to be stopped cold.


He'd be better served to team up with Musk and promote his Starlink

Um... MOST public utilities start in the red. That's literally one of the reasons they're often funded with public money. Society pools their resources to get the foundation in place and private companies take over.

Yknow, like large scale railroads. Large scale electricity products, especially out west. Phone lines. The internet.

I'll never understand the ultra-conservative demand that all public functions be profitable.
