Feedback after 400 hours of play

I have played POE on XBox for several hundred hours and following is my feedback. I have not played the PC version for more than 15 minutes, so I can't really compare to what is available there. I’m currently level 94 and have cleared all content minus Shaper. Waiting on 95 before I die attempting.

•Trading
-----------------------------------------------------
Spoiler

o Overall interface – I think this one has already been beaten to death. Personally, I would like to also see the new trade site (http://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search) work with xbox.

o No back button – When I search for a specific item (like a map), I can’t just go back to my map search and select a new map. I must go all the way back to the first page in trade, scroll all the way down to map, then scroll down to the new map I want to search. There should be persistence of the last location and when I hit back it takes me there. I have lost hours of time having to scroll down repeatedly for currency and maps.

o X button – I have seen other people mention this. The X button should move items from trade to/from inventory. It’s annoying having to select each item and drag it over.

o Directional pad doesn’t work – The directional pad does not work when navigating items in the trade window. This seems like a defect that should be fixed.

o Trade board location – Also brought up by numerous people. Teleporting to town every time I get an offer is cumbersome. When I’m running map after map I actually just ignore offers as I don’t want to teleport to town after every map run.

o In game chat – Others have mentioned it, it really needs to be there.

-----------------------------------------------------
• Grouping
-----------------------------------------------------
Spoiler

Grouping with others that are around the same level in a timely manner is next to impossible. Some tool needs to be created to connect people that are within a few levels of each other and want to do similar activities)

-----------------------------------------------------
• Stash Management
-----------------------------------------------------
Spoiler

o Grouping/Ordering – With maps it would be great to have a feature that will order like objects together and maybe order by level and name.

o Bulk update – It would be nice to have an option to apply updates such as asking price for all similar objects in a stash tab. For example, if I set a price of 1 chaos for my lair map, all lair maps in that tab will also get the price. Right now I simply don’t price maps as there are too many of them to do one by one.

-----------------------------------------------------
• Performance – Issues below are having Xbox one X, 200MB/75MB down/up network (hardwired, no wireless), and remote plugged into xbox with USB cable.
**** EDIT ****
Alexander_GGG messaged me that the crazy lag spikes and asked about my storage. I was running game off external hard drive, and after moving to the xbox itself the game runs 1000% better. I highly suggest anyone running on external hard drive move to internal.
-----------------------------------------------------
Spoiler

o Delay in action when pressing button – Happens all the time, but I can live with it.

o No action even when pressing button – By far the most frustrating issue. As a Gladiator with life leech, when my Sunder isn’t firing I’m losing life. I am level 94 now, but if I didn’t die from this issue ever I would easily be 96-97. The game simply does not register my primary actions sometimes.

o Lag on full inventory – Whenever I attempt to pick up an item and my inventory is full the very first time I attempt to pick that item up there is a huge lag spike. It’s like the game is waiting for feedback and it only happens the first time. If I attempt to pick up the same item again it won’t lag.

o Graphical lag – Since I updated to xbox on x last week this has not been a problem except in Beachead boss fight.

-----------------------------------------------------
• Skills – This is just my personal experience with my character
-----------------------------------------------------
Spoiler

o Leap slam – I have seen a comment from GGG they are addressing this. In my experience I have died man times trying to leap slam away from the boss, but it just keeps targeting them. Holding the left trigger down works, but is very difficult to do in very quick battles.

o Whirling blades – This skill is what introduced me to the meaning of “clunky” in POE. At first, I was like WTF do they mean by clunky. This skill is the definition of clunky. I personally think this skill is just broken it is so bad for navigating. In boss fights it works as long as it is in a large room.

o Auras – There needs to be a way to turn an aura on quickly (or automatically) outside of the left trigger menu. The issue I have is in battles where I need at least one skill on left trigger panel. I’m moving so fast that I constantly toggle off auras on accident as my leap slam and sunder share buttons (when not holding right trigger). The safest approach is to assign auras to button > turn auras on > un-assign auras to button. This is very time consuming though (after death).



With all of this I still love playing the game and will continue to do so. Thank you GGG for such a fun an immersive game.

Hi. Thank you for a very detailed feedback. We are working on most of the issues mentioned above. There are several updates lined up already, so you will see a lot of improvements in the next several weeks.

When those things happen do you see any gameplay speed ups?
Videos of it happening would help a lot.
Thanks.
OP very nice feedback, I have a similar problem as the Full Inventory situation.

Have you had the same lag when encountering a Master or any NPC in the wild?

When this happens its usually just a minor annoyance. Although, sometimes any action I attempt at that time doesnt go through and could end in death.
Hello,

very nice feedback, i couldnt find better words.

Thank you.

Also thanks GGG for the great work, the positive answer and this really nice game!

Does this indicate, that we have to wait for the next patch, till the next league? Also I think it hasn't been answered yet, if xbox league start will be at the same time as pc. Could you please clarify?
Thank you very much for the feedback. I have put together a few videos I took in the last day or two.

This is an awesome thread thanks.

What do you think about a tradeboard like an HV ? I m bored to search items with online players only. Sometimes i loose few days because no answers from playes item .
It will be good to force players to set price on items to sell them and put an instand buy when we put the currency price.

And we need more options in tradeboard to search items (filter like poe trade is necessary)
only thing with movement skills on the xbox version is the rubberbanding when using movement skills more than once super annoying and died many times in hc due to it have 39 dayys playtime and stil havent seen it being resolved
Completely agree with you, OP. +1
