This hasn't been a healthy relationship for a while now.



Bestiary isn't a failure from a design perspective, it fills a role in the game previously voided.

The people it doesn't address crying about not getting candy doesn't invalidate that effort.

Your basically doing the same thing as redit right?(echoing a sentiment not based on personal experience but based on a very biased sample size)

Chris seems like a good guy, but good guys don't control crowds very well.

Peace,

My criticism of Bestiary came much earlier and you know it. What I've observed since has only cemented my stance, albeit coming from different points of criticism. Something felt off about it and very little I've seen has changed my mind there. So no, Boem. I'm not doing the same thing as reddit.

And you're missing the value of the words 'interesting' and 'educating'. Which hardly surprises me.


I look at the design space it occupy's, which is fine.

I know it's rushed and poorly handled and i know your stance on the mater which coincides with it being rushed and just poorly incorporated in the bigger structure.

I see a lot of potential in it and i wouldn't like if they had to throw the baby out with the water just because of "pr" or the pressure of the community, which seems like a very likely option in the current atmosphere.

Peace,

It is not easy to realize the monster in yourself, truly it is not easy to create purposefully.
It is easy to realize the virtue in yourself, truly it is easy to destroy.
Contemplate which is worth your time.

The league concept is fine, the implementation is probably the biggest misstep I've seen GGG make in the entirety of PoE. 99% of the recipes are absolutely useless, worse than other methods of crafting but more tedious on top of it because you have to fight the monsters twice, and you have to be wary enough to not kill them the first time around, and the average reward is just pathetic given the level of engagement required to get it.

I'm pretty disappointed by how poorly executed this league was, because I do enjoy the idea of the potential for greater rewards if you just slow it down a notch. I really can't go into detail about how I feel about the fact that this was pushed to live, so I'll just continue trolling global chat.
WOOOwooWOOOOOO

The concept had me hyped. The reveal was an almost instant decision to quit for the league's duration.

But you've been around long enough and seen enough to know there's a story behind everything. I do not view this as GGG's greatest failure to date. I think in hindsight it'll have been another learning experience.

Trolling global in white text is so unsatisfying. :(
Conversations can be tiring and they can be unrewarding. I do not tolerate conversations that are both.

Having the blues would be very appropriate for this league.

I mean Reddit says forums are toxic but then forum says Reddit is toxic idc anymore lmao

To me the fact of this league, and previous ones, is that QA either is not doing their jobs or not given adequate time doing their jobs, and I'm starting to think it's the latter with too much content being shoved down our throats to satisfy some metric tied to challenge leagues.

That's where I am right now anyways. I really don't like where we are.

99% of the world's population sees reddit for what it is: a hangout for the kids living with their parents until 50, troll land, idiotsville, etc.

GGG thinks it is a place to base business decisions on. I would never put anything related to my business on that cesspool. I have always thought many of the devs at GGG have a barely (just) concealed contempt for anyone that posts on their own forum and a strangely sick love affair with the troll kids on reddit.

As a business person, I literally cannot think of a WORSE place to conduct business PR than reddit. GGG seriously needs to hire someone to manage at least the PR aspect of their business.

The reddit folks were the ones that proclaimed that you can catch dead animals in nets. As stupid as this sounds, this is nowhere near the motherlode of idiocy for them.

Every subreddit generally has a different average age. Some are higher, some are lower.

I'm sure that in the case of POE the age is a little higher than 18, which is a reasonable age when it comes to gaming.

Also, the updoot system let's you get a bit more perspective on what hundreds of people agree or disagree with.

I do enjoy the whining here since before the league start. It's amazing how pedantic people can be and how seriously they take this game.

The problem with reddit is that everyone is full of shit at least on here you have a public profile so you can't really lie.

Bestiary is not a failure, it was a great league before GGG nerfed everything. It was supposed to be a league for SSF, but now that recipes and spawn rates are nerfed, we are having huge issues finding stuff.

I think it is a fact that SSF and Trade league need to have different spawn rates, XP rates and the like. The game needs to be split into two separate balance settings, as the mistakes in trade league, always affect the innocent people at SSF too.

This should be the biggest goal for 3.3. SSF must be improved, it´s the bread and butter of any ARPG, people suffer in that league, for things they have no control over.


The only mistake GGG did is listening once more to reddit people. It´s not the first time that the game is "balanced" around their outcry. Many cool things were made super rare and impossible to find in SSF, just because of reddit nerf whine. GGG should just ignore reddit, they should stop with catering a game for the 0.1%. They are not worth it, they will always rage if they don´t get what they want.

Please GGG, stop listening to them, it will be the best thing you can do for this game.
