Regarding the Twitch Prime Promotion

Hey guys,

I just wanted to take a moment to address some of the concerns about the region block on the upcoming promotion that we're running with Twitch Prime. Normally, we would avoid promotions that exclude a portion of our users (and have done so in the past), however partnering with Twitch is a huge opportunity for the game and one that we believe will benefit the community as a whole by promoting the game and encouraging new players to join us for the release of The Fall of Oriath.

Twitch and Amazon are huge platforms for us to spotlight Path of Exile on. The Twitch Prime team is aware of this feedback, and they've generously offered to support a giveaway for the Path of Exile community (in conjunction with Alienware) which will take place during the Beta for The Fall of Oriath. This giveaway will be open to all regions and include prizes sponsored by Twitch/Amazon, Alienware hardware and also free microtransactions from us.

This promotion will help the growth of Path of Exile by putting it in the spotlight in the leadup to its largest expansion ever. While not everyone can take part directly, we hope that everyone will see the benefits of this exposure over time.

We apologise to those who have been excluded. Rest assured, wherever possible we try to make things as fair as we can to everyone in the community.

In other words: a cash grab.

Which is fine. It's a shame I can't participate. But grabbing a little extra money is not a bad thing. Let's hope you invest it into the balance team.
I enjoy watching idiots destroy their own game.
I can appreciate that you're listening and that you care.
If i'm to be excluded i'd rather not this be the news of the day. Do whatever seems best of course but this rubs me wrong.

Would be nice to know, thanks.

Should be up within the next hour. Our hours vary from person to person and day to day, but they're typically between 8.30am and 6.30pm.

Oooh I wonder what that could be.

re: twitch. Dude, you're a business. Make your money. It all comes back to the game anyway, one way or another.

This playerbase is pretty damn spoiled.
What's the difference between the Eighth Circle of Hell and my ignore list? There's a slight chance you can get out of the Eighth Circle of Hell.

Between Wolcen and Warframe, my need for satisfying melee is no longer something PoE has to worry about. PEW PEW PEW PEW~~~~~~~~~
