What you don't understand is that whether SSF is gimping yourself or not is a matter of perspective.


Mostly because "gimping yourself" is open to interpretation. I think his point was that playing SSF is deliberately making things more difficult for yourself, which is hard to deny. After all, if trading makes the game easier, than choosing not to trade is therefore making the game harder.

Trying to make a game more challenging might be hard for some people to grasp, but some of us have been doing it since D1 and D2 days.

The only true way your gimping yourself is if your making the game less enjoyable for yourself.

Now for the reverse. Do you trade leaguers hate yourselves? You're playing a game all about getting loot and not doing that at all. just picking up money to buy other peoples loot.

I like SSF in other games but in poe there are two problems beside the gcp thing with SSF (at least for me):
1.) Helmet enchantments
Running uber lab a few hundred times before I get my enchantment? No thank you!
2.) Watcher's Eye
Killing uber elder for weeks without getting the gem that I need/want? No thank you!


To be take it bluntly... thats BS my friend :)

you dont NEED either Helmet enchantments or Watchers Eyes for 99% of Builds to work...

I played 2 Leagues of SSF, a little in Bestiary and some more in Incursion, and heck, i enjoyed it!
