For all those players who claim they quit playing

They clearly have nowhere better to be. =^[.]^=
=^[.]^= is the basic (happy/amused) cheetahmoticon: Whiskers/eye/tear-streak/nosey/tear-streak/eye/
whiskers
=@[.]@= boggled / =>[.]<= annoyed or angry / ='[.]'= concerned / =0[.]o= confuzzled /
=-[.]-= sad / =*[.]*= dazzled / =^[.]~= wink / =~[.]^= naughty wink
If you QUIT, yet linger on the PoE forum, it is clear you have nowhere better to be.
In some cases, the forums are genuinely more entertaining than playing the game. Kind of sad.

"just for try, for see and for know"
Have you ever bitched about a relationship after the relationship was over? I haven't played for 3 weeks or so but still come on the forums once in a while just to see how the games progressing and if Chris's vision is still a economy sim with light rpg elements. People want to come back to a game if it changes for the better!

So why are you here posting in the forums? If you no longer play the game, why are you guys still around? It doesn't make sense to me. If you no longer enjoy the game isn't there a better thing to do with your time?


This part boggles my mind as well.


hurr durr, I hate this game, I'm done playing; posts on the forums every day

No, funny enough those posts begin with "I love this game, but..." almost everytime. "Don't get me wrong, PoE is great, I love it, GGG best devs ever, but I think leveling sucks, end game sucks, gearing sucks, combat sucks, the whole game sucks, I suck, I quit after 3h of playing like one year ago, but I love the game ! Just giving some feedback yo !".

Forum is the real PoE.


THIS

80% items are sold in forum
All builds and trades=forum


Only thing you do ingame is level to 70+ /It took me day to get over 70 level
and win all 3 diff and then flip items to get better

I used to play self found but it just isn't viable/effective
I did play self found with wich in closed beta marauder in open and now i play trade simulator duelist

I enjoy this game but really some small %chance for upgrades without trade would help to my motivation + that feel when you see 20 high end items drop and no 1 get allocated to you .
1:6 I would expect atleast 1 :D

Now it is just about forum upgrading of my build
Spoiler


Chances that I get better drop is 0,0001% on rings
0,00002% on amulets 0% on armor uniques can't get noticably better
Only thing I could do Is buy legacy rainbows for more resist
but my resist is caped
I would buy it on forum anyway because ingame ppl want 1000x higher ammount of orbs


TLTR;
Forum is 75%+ of POE so It is important to keep it with no spam etc
You just exp ingame if you want decent build
I would never reach 60k infernal blow with tank playin self found.
Self found is completely unrewarding It is nerfing yourself for some sort of fun?
Self found is not challenging It just slowest way possible of reaching end game.

These guys are both so right, and that's not even a dig at the game. Forum trading is way more efficient than killing your own monsters, love it or hate, it's true.

And with leagues winding down sometimes being a forum warrior is sometimes more fun.

[quote="I_NO"]They say every time Chris Wilson cries those tears form into exalted orb's that drop onto the game itself.

I burned myself out from the game and have temporarily quit. Games are not diamonds, they aren't forever, nomatter how good a game is you will burn yourself out of it eventually.... for the great ones you come back tho. I might come back momentarily to screw around with the new summoning stuff but won't play for real until next ladder (i think?).

That being said I am not one of these people crying over drop rates and 6 linking being hard on the forums, I actually think those aspects of the game are more or less the way they should be.

That is the way it should be and most other games are like that. Who would be a merchant if you could do better by actually playing the game? Being a merchant is boring as shit so in a sense its balanced in that way.

as far as i can see they don't just "claim" that they quit, because basically they have quitted already and they just let it die away in the forums, imho not a biggie.

my friendlist was already completely greyed out some time ago (minus one or two people maybe), plus i saw some stats (annually, monthly and daily) also from steam and it was pure downhill.

I quit playing. I'm a paying customer, so I'm allowed to voice my opinion. I'm rooting for PoE to become a better game, because some aspects of it are really good. Hopefully one day I can come back when the end game offers progression, and 300 hours of grinding gets me more than a headache and a mountain of worthless shit to identify. The people who quit playing and still care about the game enough to ask for changes are the true hardcore fans, so don't you judge me.
