History

I've always enjoyed how involved PoE is in figuring out builds and developing your character.

My issue with the game has always been end game mapping and the trading system. It is very action heavy manually moving all the items around and manually messaging players to access end game content. I've probably had enough currency to attempt shaper / elder multiple leagues but I always stop playing before that happens.

If they fix the trading system as a result end game content would be more accessible and more enjoyable overall. I just get tired of inventory management being a gateway into difficult content.

Realistically no significant or meaningful gameplay changes but some more content.

Hopefully we get an overhaul of the item system to where loot filters are no longer a game play necessity. A philosophical change in content presentation to where trade is only for gear. As well as an overhaul to support gems to where the decision isn't just in maxing damage, but actually alter the base skills in meaningful and interesting ways.

The only expectation I´m actually having is that the game takes it progress in the correct direction and evolves.
Other then that I have a wish also, and certainly do not expect it. But each and every League will last 4 months instead of 3 as it is now. I just think that we would see a lot of improvements because of it. I just think that it would in fact be overall a positive thing for all parts involved.

No expectations anymore.

There will just be flood after flood of sub-optimal stuff that gets added to an amazing foundation of a game. And that foundation is what makes me still play it.

Given that absolutely none of us would have predicted 10 acts in their last one, I doubt anyone here has the remotest clue as to what to expect.

What we'll hear about at Exilecon:

--Four new classes! Hundreds of new nodes, notables, and keystones!

What we'll get:

--Cool and useful things stripped from four existing classes and lumped together in various combinations to make four additional classes that are OP at first, but then will see a stealth nerf about a month into the new release.

What the teasers will say:

--Customize your character's gender, skin, hair, eyes, and voice!

What we'll see:

--Mtx that reskin your naked character with one of the handful of tired-ass, recycled textures floating around Wraeclast already. (Weren't those Piety's eyebrows? Hey, that looks like Weylam's ass-pimple. Why is the only female Templar skin, obese?) And your now-female Marauder just uses the old Witch voiceover lines, and vice versa.

What the Sneak Peeks will show:

--A new Act begins for exiles, one that will present a lasting challenge

What we'll actually hear about on opening day

--Kitava is back and wants to apply yet another permanent tax on our stats

What will get reviewed in streams:

--All-new maps and a new PVP arena

What most players will discover only too late:

--New leagues will put a focus on PVP but the promised balance overhaul for PVP never happened, oh and you have to buy the new maps as MTX and guess what? they use the same old tilesets

As another fellow Closed Beta supporter who has been here and seen it all it is sad that TGGG has chosen to go down the shooter rabbit hole chasing those crowds seeking (at least they think) a greater quantity of players and thus a greater quantity of mtx sales. This rabbit hole takes PoE further and further away from being a classic arpg and more into the shooter type of game which is sad to see happen. Our original reasons we came to play PoE 6+ years ago (will be 7 years for me in December) have been tossed in the trash in favor of whatever will make TGGG the most revenue. Pride in producing a quality arpg is gone since the Tencent sellout. Maybe that is why Qarl quit GGG to work on a new project.

100%

PoE is a shell of what it used to be.

Bizzare adventures into the world of table top, pokemon, and Tower Defense compounded with power creep, outrageous crafting, and skill gem focus that basically makes gear irrelevant for 90% of the game.

Its truly sad. But every game has a life span. I think the glory days of PoE are well behind us.

My hopes:
Better graphic engine and performance with high-poly count,
Better character personalization,
Make equipment more relevant and makes build that uses only 1 active skill less optimal,
Add more variaton league to league.
