An open letter to casuals asking to dumb down the game or make rare items more common

An open letter to no lifers asking to over complicate the game or make it take more time to progress to give a false sense of real life achievement

I've never cared about drops. Much easier to WTB 2:1 WTS 3:1 know what i mean?

When ppl show me their "lucky" find i'm like whatever thats ez work for me. ppl are pretty stupid to grind IMO. Never done that either. I dont tink i ever ran two maps twice in a row.

Last season I tried to get artist cards ran like 50 overgrown ruins. Got zero. What a joke. Took me about a a hour of flipping to buy all 11.

Drops rates do suck but whatever.

And funnily enough, your logic works both ways.
Casuals want to make game easier, so they feel they achieved something (false sense of real life achievement), because they can't simply play the game. They need to WIN. And if anyone ever has more wealth/higher level, they will feel inferior (inferiority complex taken from their real life, as one might assume) and cry about it on the forums.
And when they are confronted with the arguments, they will go with standard at least I have a life/get a life.
I sense a projection here btw, but hey, who am to judge? :V
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.
Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.

Please stop.

If you have less time to play, expect to get fewer items or be lower level.

Ps. Yes, that is my letter. Because quite frankly this is how simple this issue is. .-.


It's not the casuals that are going to be the ruination of the difficulty inherent in PoE - it's the hardcore, the entitled, the streamers, the big guide writers and forum trolls like u ;)

Why?

MOST Casuals.. don't.. go.. forums.. ever..

Look at the threads; the whine is about spending 3k+ fuses on a missing 6link, casuals don't usually GET 3k fuses in the first place.

Casuals also don't popularize modifying the game so you can get the benefit of seeing what should be offscreen to you, nor do casuals overhype certain uniques to be supervalued beyond any reasonable merit.

In fact, the casual players are the substrate for these actions. They are the masses of people whose money pay for GGG rent.

Adress your whine thread to the other whine-thread-producing forum trolls, and it may yet become an effective communication. For this, however, 'targeting' casuals won't work, because obviously very few pageturner-churners consider themselves casual as you may suspect given that you have some insight into the human psyche.

So far though, it seems you're mostly attracting attention to the fact that you are talking to yourself, as you are evidently every bit as casual as most of us, unless you're redefining casualness to mean casual-but-addicted-and-nonstop-playing-and-forumtrolling.

I frankly don't care if GGG makes the game harder or easier, it's not like PoE is the only game i play, nor is my happiness in life tied to getting exalts or getting laid; both happen adequately, and so why complain?

I mean i'm so casual i'm not even likely to read whatever snarky replies are posted to this post, but i'm not so dumb as to think none will be made, by forum trolls, like yourself, chasing the high of 'winning an argument', lol.
Agreed, whats worse is people are now asking for better drops as a result of implementing SSF as a secondary option even though GGG had already told them they wont. Really wish they didnt make SSF an option because now its just another reason for more people to complain about a non-issue.

Already said this would happen when they originally announced it, it already did happen somewhat before, now i see threads about it regularly. Real obnoxious.

Its 100% true, Word of Warcraft is one of the greatest examples of this.

I downed all of Burning Crusade (including sunwell) and i only got to play 1-2 hours a day, if that. Was a complete casual in that game as a student, with a massive schedule to abide by. Job, sports, club, homework, social life, games came after all that.

Now they just give away achievement items and made the game redundant, oh and Black Market. Literally pay to achieve, quite hilarious. Real easy to hit gold cap in a week or soo and just auto buy out anything you wanted by max bidding.

Meanwhile you got other "casuals" whining saying they cant get things because its too hard or too time consuming. Complete bullshit. Thanks to those players Blizzard ran one of my favorite games into the ground to appease players who now sit around in their garrisons all day with welfare legendaries wonder why the game is soo bad.
