I think the bug woudln't be so bad if the maps were more common. The combination of these both factors is what makes me so furious. You get a map thinking "finally!!!" after playing this league for hours and hours and then a f+++ing portal is put directly on the pump.

GGG then:



Oh BTW- even without the bug the drop rates are a joke


Yes drop rates of bligh maps are about the same time frame as finding two exalted orbs so if you get a bugged map it's going to be infuriating

Incidentally this game is still the only game I can play with one hand in the cookie jar and the other hand clicking with my mouse. Literally.

(It's been that way ever since Tencent.)

Yes, it is extremely sad for Chris to be ok that PoE is a game you can now play while watching tv. That may be ok for some but since my gaming computer is downstairs and my tv is in the upstairs living room that won't work. More to the point of where GGG is taking PoE is that I don't want a spam a skill and shatter entire mob pack(s) without any playing skill required. I also don't want the 1 shot death trap bs for which there is no defense (oh right, just go all in on offence and kill everything first). That does not make for a balanced and fun-to-play arpg, just a waste of time shooter. Where's the skill and strategy elements? It's gone since sellout to Tencent.

I had about half a dozen blight maps drop on my way up to level 84. But from level 84 to 91, I got ZERO blight map drops.

Totally killed my interest in the league.


Why does GGG continue to gate content behind rng? Do they really not understand the difference between something like Betrayal, where you build up progress towards access to the content, and leagues like this one or Abyss where you just have to get lucky?

I went through the entire Abyss league never once finding an abyss depths zone. Every crack ended at a chest. Sure, just one character up to level 86 and then rage quit the league. But still, when the 'special' content of a league is 100% accessed via a roll of the dice, it is inevitable that some players will never see it and through no fault of their own.

So the questions remains, why do they keep doing it? Do they just give up on the idea of trying to balance the frequency of access? Is it purely taking the easy way out no matter how many players they piss off along the way?

I would sure love to hear them address this design choice and explain exactly what benefit to the game they think it gives.

POE is RNG on RNG on RNG on RNG on RNG (you get the idea). So while I found around 4 or 5 ex in the last week I got no blight map.

As Qiox said, it is just an incredibly stupid gamedesign to gate League content completly behind RNG- especally when this mistake was done in the past

The game developers always have to decide how nasty they should be. On a scale of:

"Just let every player have access to full power from level one" (Minecraft creator mode)

to

"Dance for your scraps you filthy player" (Blight map drops)

I'm all for posts like this one, as they are yet another chance for the GGG developers to realise that they are simply being jerks to most players when they accomodate the few players who want to grind like peasants.

Glad you made the right choice. These clowns have no brain to understand that.

That depends on how you play though, I'm at two exalts and seven blighted maps.

If you're not doing blights and just pounding out maps and delve you shouldn't expect to get blighted maps.

Edit: I'm actually at 8 blighted maps. I've failed two, and then I just checked my stash and I have 6.

  • When you actually see someone say, they don't do blight encounters, then go ahead and make that comment.

    Nobody who is going to complain about not finding blight maps is actually going to be skipping blight encounters. It makes no sense to throw out that 'advice'.

    And exalts? Ya, I'm at zero found so far while leveling up to 91. Yeah me.

    I have seen it, that's why I'm assuming all of these people are doing it. Blighted maps are definitely a hell of a lot less rare than exalts.

    Wait, this bug still exists? Wtf

    Natalia said they knew about it before the release, and it's October 19th, and it's still not fixed?

    if anything you should learn from blight is two things:

    1) they overwhelm themselves creating things that later they can't fix.
    2) alot of damage control posts this league leading to believing that they fixed some things but in fact the fix never happened they just let RNG take over the wheel.

    As for the pump bug it was from day ONE of blight, glad I'm not playing the league anymore.. still curious how they announced TWICE that they "fixed" it but I see people dealing with the path of casino for endgame.


    I stopped playing about a month ago, however, when I was, playing blighted maps was actually really fun. Gratuitous Violence in blighted maps felt amazing. I can't imagine being screwed over by a pump spawn bug. Good lord, I'd be raging as well lol
