Apparently the current league ends at the end of this month. So maybe I'll wait for that -- maybe they'll "fix" some of this stuff. (wishful thinking...)

Then again, I never did get around to doing a RF build... so I'll wait a week or so from my annoyance to diminish then I might give it a go..

I fired PoE up yesterday, the first time since the 3.1 update. Wasted some time cleaning up my stash tabs and then I started checking things out...

The new map and fragment stash tabs are excellent. A particularly good job by PoE on the design of the map stash tab. I had spent some time considering how they might do something like this and they came up with a far better design than I was able to -- well done.

That's the good news, here is the bad... OMG WTF, over. They made the end game map stuff even worse than it was before. It's even harder to do "Shaped" maps. I'm not sure I can sufficiently describe the changes without several paragraphs, which I doubt anyone would care to read.

*sigh*

Barring changes or someone showing me I missed something, I think I am done with PoE.

I think the biggest problem was maps for me.. I hated Chaosing maps/re-rolling them trying to get higher tiers/etc..

It shouldn't be that hard, it should be more fluid to run harder content. I haven't played since they redid the entire acts/story so maybe it changed but I quit playing with ~800 hours right before that.

Always glad to see these guys doing well. I think it is probably the best example of a free to play game I've ever seen, and hopefully it is monetarily working well for them!

I know I've personally bought the ten stash bundle because I like to horde everything!

Agreed, GGG deserves all the praise they can get for an Indy dev.

Buying a single stash bundle (ten tabs) in this game is not an indication of hording. When you get close to 100 tabs, let us know.

I think the new Atlas war stuff might make the endgame more interesting for me. Gives a reason to play a lot of different maps rather than just focusing on a few, and the Elder bosses and Abyss mechanics will spice it up as well. Should be better than Breach league even

The campaign is huge. I'm fairly confident that it's the biggest one in any Diablo game. The endgame is horribly boring though. Doing generic map after generic map with pretty damn close to zero chance of getting an upgrade. I have probably 100 hours in it and the grind is too overwhelming for me. This new update doesn't look like it has anything interesting enough for me.

Yeah -- I've had two runs through it. Pre 3.0 and post 3.0, probably have 1,000 hours or so into it. I suspect this will be enough for me to take a third run.

I got burned out on Path of Exile (albeit after 4000 hours) and the power creep still seems to be out of control, but man these guys are unstoppable on new content and things to do.
