Maps are fine , some of us also love the design of maps. So many casuals here that want everything handed to them . I play all parts of PoE . I make multiple chars each league i play , i map ( buy many maps myself ) , i participate in the trade based economy to buy and to sell.

Maps are one of the best things in PoE , the idea of everything being craftable ( or really the idea everything can be rolled like loot not really crafting but semantics) along with the actual choices you get to make in characters and skill gems makes PoE the great game it is. All you casuals that want to water it down into some kind of D3 bullshit should move on and stop trying to kill a great game that has almost always had maps ( few of you played when there was no map just the semi endless dungeon) Mapping is a major part of PoE , trading for maps is a major part of PoE , having to use currency to roll maps is a major part of PoE .

Stop trying to turn this into some sort of casual game that all content is just open to everyone regardless of the effort they put in . Those games exist all over now in fact almost every fucking game has gone that way . Leave PoE alone with your casual wants and go find one of the other thousands of games that cater to people who dont want to earn anything in game.


Dude what is your problem. How the F do you know if someone is a casual. I've done over 2,500 hours into POE and just because I believe that maps are not easy to sustain does NOT make me 'casual'. 12 hours a day in POE.

Why don't you get off the high road, son, and off your high horse cause you're not fit to be on it.

The game is great, but it can be greater. That's the point.

I don't even have a terrible problem with maps. What I don't like is the fact that maps aren't based on item quantity.

P.S. BTW if I am casual, then I am sure kicking your ass in challanges, fff*** noob


I recently encountered this guy, it's funny to go through his posts and then look at his gear and challenge history. So hardcore. Let the child be, it's pretty funny.

Seriously ??? It had mechanics to make mapping easier , that is not the norm nor will it ever be the norm which is why that part of Harb didnt make it into the main game. Stop using it as an example because its what is called an outlier and thus not representative of the game as a whole or in the norm .


I played Harbinger more than any other league so far due to the fact I could run endgame content pretty much non-stop and have fun. This league it's back to 1ex shaper sets and overpriced guardian maps, basically the same shit as standard but even worse because it's a 3 month temp league.

Say what you want about D3 (I haven't played in years myself) but at least the game catered to your gear and level with grifts, this game just throws a giant wall in front of you once you get to a certain point.


This game doesn't put a giant wall up at all. For you maybe, but it has been proven time after time that it's just lack of 1. motivation and 2. knowledge. Stop being a victim and make this game like Diablo is. Rift farming is the most boring shit they ever invented in a game.
147/157 Here. Tried to unlock everything and left vault as my only t14, as I've done in few previous leagues with different maps. And here comes the problem, after running 50+ t13's I came out with maybe 2 shaped vaults and 30+ of garbo t14. Chances should be near 50/50, but they are clearly not. Hell, getting vaults from t12's as it's the only t14 that can drop seems way easier. Guess its time to lock bunch of maps and go for a fully shaped atlas.
One thing peopel seems to forget, the people who post here are the 'hardcore ones'. From a research several years ago, its estimate only about 10% of players base post in game forum, I have friends that play PoE that don't make a single post.

If people here are having problem with maps, you can bet a vast majaority of palyers have problems too.

GGG already said most players do not make it past 90, even far less beat shaper. For reason, GGG seems more interested to design the game around the 1-5% of the hardcore base then the majority. Less than 0,1% of people reached level 100, but for reasons, they decided to make reaching level 100 harder.

GGG done a decent job, adding Horizon & Harbringer orbs, & for reason, decided to drop them & add even more maps, making getting higher maps harder.



Horizon orbs should be introduced beack into the game. Make them something in between a chaos and a Regal rarity.

Anyway, I messed up my SSF progression in Abyss and now I'm stuck with several holes in the Atlas. For SSF progression this rule should be strictly observed: do not complete any of the next tier maps, until you have collected all of them. Which means you have to progress from all four corners simultaneously.

I suppose.

The dude that I quoted, who seems to be on his own high horse about being "hardcore" while blindly dumping money into Chris's wallet has worse gear and perceived game knowledge than my friend that started playing casually 2 leagues ago. I don't consider people like that anywhere close to hardcore, just [Removed by Support].

I was with you until you bring BS political slander into the discussion, on a discussion that has nothing to do with politics.

Here we are again filling up my atlas this morning. I'm spending more time PM'ing people are trying to buy the maps then actually running them.

Snooze.
Pretty happy with the map drops myself, i have not been stuck yet.
As someone else earlier mentioned i do agree that the atlas should not be completed on a single char but rather on several chars. You can still get to the shaper on the first char without getting every single map completed.
