An Update from Chris

The level of communication that you continuously provide is leagues (pun intended) beyond any other game developer that I've interacted with before. And as others have said, most important part of the post is the stern resolve not to overwork people. I don't want to play a game made by overworked people. Part of what makes PoE great is, in my opinion, the love that the developers also have for the game. Love which would prolly dwindle with overwork. I must applaud such a stance. Keep up the good work, guys. You're making one hell of a game and community, over these years.

I love this game and its developers. Keep up the good work.

A big topic in the gaming industry recently is development crunch.


Going to say this right now. Get rid of crunch time. Once and FOR ALL. It does nothing but push people up (and eventually over) a wall, whether that be with stress, anger, rage, a mixture OR ALL of that & more that isn't being listed here.

I've probably done stuff to help with this^. It's time I stop & HELP people.
Hold on the good work GGG.
What about take a session for 4 month,
so you got more breath for other things?
Thank you Chris and GGG, I highly value and appreciate the transparency! Please never change and always stay true to your roots.

Cheers,
DLA

WHAT? oh man I am somehow really sad that synthesis isnt going core.. i mean its huge and insane, but i really enjoyed it's mechanics. good i got 2 pairs of onslaught boots.. still, i would like it to go core..
Please, it's better you delay a bit the next releases than meet dates w/o everything ready and tested. Hope next releases will be that way.

And I'm very very very very glad and thankfull that you support and care for your developers. As a developer myself (software industry not game industry) I know how important is that and how greedy a companhy can go and damage us forever. (I still have panic attacks thanks to one of my former employees).

You owned a support for me just for that.
"There's no thing like random one-shots in this game. You only die because you take 353,456,237 hits in 0.2 seconds. If your build can't survive that or a lag spike it's because you suck, period. Post your PoB so the PoE experts can analyse and help improve your build."
Good response to Synthesis. It does need more time. Maybe later. Maybe not. The "design space" is getting full, so you really should look at what you include in it.

On the other side of that... don't let the shitposters ruin your game. There will always be that side and they'll always be very visible. Take that kind of feedback carefully. You can't ignore it, but you also can't cave to it.

I'll still recommend you consider alternating new leagues with legacy. Legacy was really enjoyable, and it would give you more time to really make the new leagues shine.
