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.

What is this marketing? Do they intentionally want to sabotage their own game release?

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.
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.
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.

Eh, I never thought the originals were anything beyond okay. Zero interest in this even if it was free.
Never change, Cutter.
Go fuck yourself. There's zero shortage of games that I love and get excited about personally or around here, asshole.

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.

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

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.

They seem to be putting some work into the expansion. I wonder if that had anything to do with the game's removal from the EGS freebies?
This has been in the works for about a year if not more. I don't see how a expansion is affected in any way by some second rate steam wanna be giveaway that did or did not happen pretty recently. shrug

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.
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.

To anyone who is all fine and good with witchunts as long as you sympathize with the political stance of the accusers, beware further legitimizing this, or don't be surprised when the opposite political groups pick up this tactic and run with it.
Your just choosing chaos over the rule of law, good luck with that.

Oh no. That's certainly next on the chopping block. There isn't anything the moonbats won't be coming after if anyone is offended in even the slightest amount. Big Brother is coming to be sure. Another year or two they'll be opening the "re-education" centers. Doubleplus good, comrade.
One thing's for sure... if Cutter isn't happy about it, decent human beings are probably all for it.
