Fixed a bug where Cold Snap's damage over time stacked with itself. To compensate for this, we have increased Cold Snap and Vaal Cold Snap's damage by 25% at gem level 20, scaling down to no change at gem level 1.


I just played a few maps and Incursions after these changes and let me tell you. Cold Snap is pretty much unplayable now. The map clear is pretty much the same as before though. But the damage on bosses is extremely low and even more clunky now.

I just don't get it. You make a skill, that doesn't scale that well (even before the fix, it was hard to scale in red maps), it needs charges to be utilized properly and doesn't have the best area either. There is absolutely no reason to ever use this skill as is. At least before we could stack the damage over time effect, which made it viable. But even before the nerf/fix, it was a subpar skill.

With how the economy works in PoE, you are forced to play what is effective and not always what you find most fun or you'll get behind currency-wise and can't buy the items you need and play what and how you want to.

Having such a large distance between how effective skills are, is ruining the game for me and probably a lot of other players.

And doing this mid-league? People who invested time and effort into playing with Cold Snap, has basically two options. Stop playing this league and wait for the next or reroll and start over, which is kind of a big problem because of above (we can't all level a new character in 1-2 days)


I agree.

I stopped doing leagues and have stopped supporting the game because of build breaking nerfs almost every patch.

I mean seriously, they don't balance shit, they destroy it.

Only people in the chats these days are newbies.

I hope their Chinese overlords pay attention to these draconian build crushing nerfs.


As much as i don't want to agree it certainly feels that way a lot of the time. It happens enough that it makes you wonder just how much thought they put into their "fixes" before implementing them. I mean, with this they essentially killed a skill they spent time reworking... Why? YOLO? For the LULZ? Or do they just really like wasting time? i can't think of a single build that would make use of this skill. It can't be used as a main skill because the single target is too low. People don't need the frenzy charge generation, especially since it eats them, when there are so many other methods to gain them. Chill was changed so it isn't that effective without building on it and if the player is building on it they probably freeze/chill with another skill. CWDT and CoC builds can't make much use of it with the cd/frenzy consumption. This also means it can't be used on Poet's Pens or Mjolner.

If someone can think of a build that would benefit from this skill I would be shocked.

I've noticed changes in temple lvl. Before 3.3.1 temple was taking the highest map level completed during incursion stages. Now it seems like taking mean value between completed maps.


map temple level is avg of the incursions's level +4. so
temple level = avg(IL) +4

Don't you worry your little self about that. GGG will not only nerf the build, they will totally destroy it. Like they do virtually every build, add new skills, destroy old skills. Rinse and repeat.

I personally am sick of it. Stopped supporting the game well over 6 months ago. I'm sure I'm not alone, while they are adding new players, most of them quite after awhile. Veteran players, quite because everything they build gets destroyed. Sooner or later, the new player base is going to run dry and so will this game.
Diablo II Refugee -> PoE Refugee -> Grim Dawn & Wolcen Supporter
Another day and GGG still dont care about players. How can i finish my atlas?

Because of what? Because an totally unbalanced build that you just copied gets nerfed?
And then harass people in the forum. Pathetic! If you have complaints, im the wrong person for you to howl out at.

I can tell you what it MOST LIKELY is in less than 3 minutes and it isn't something GGG can fix.

It's your storage device. When a storage device begins to fail you get corrupted/missing files. It gradually gets worse until the system no longer recognizes the drive. If you stored the game on an SSD then this is the most likely cause. The reason is because, while HDD have an easily predictable life cycle of reads/writes, flash storage like flashdrives, SSDs, M.2s etc do NOT and can fail/show early signs of failing randomly. This is why large businesses don't use them in their servers. Not even as the primary boot device.

Typically, in the IT field, the first thing people love to check on is the RAM. (depending on the issue) This is because (back in the day) the RAM was the first thing to go in most cases. However, because the issue is specifically with the game and you aren't BSODing (yet) it's likely just corrupted game files on the storage device. The system is requesting x game files but the storage device won't produce them because it pulls corrupted/deleted/fragmented files. This causes the game to crash as it can't advance without them. You probably have other corrupted files on the system and likely even in the registry but it just hasn't become apparent yet. (assuming this game is on the primary storage device)

I can narrow down that it is a local issue because nobody, other than yourself, is posting this issue. Not on reddit or on the forums. If I were you I would immediately back up any files you need to and then attempt re-installing the game. Doing this, assuming it is a failing storage device(which it likely is), will definitely cause it to degrade a lot more.
