I’m probably going to perma-delete my Path of Exile game and all related files from my game machine seeing the direction that the company is heading. But the last two leagues for me were skipped for various reasons, mostly in that I had been losing interest for some time. With the new league launch coming up against Diablo 3’s season 24, there’s no question which game I’m going to be playing.
I haven’t really posted anything about Diablo 4 since it was announced at Blizzcon. Most of my time has been spent on playing Path of Exile to get my ARPG fix. However, with the direction of GGG and the recent leagues being what I consider bad jokes, I feel it’s a good time to discuss Diablo 4 and what it means to Blizzard.
So I decided not to check out Delirium league and wait for feedback to see how bad it was going to turn out. Right now, as I read feedback from angry hardcore fans both on Twitch and reddit, I’ve come to the conclusion that my decision was right. The general assessment in my own words is that this league is basically Corona on top of AIDS.
Exilecon 2019 has come and gone quite quickly and I did my best to try and keep up with the various panels. I wanted to share my thoughts on the matter.
I just saw a video where they showed Asmongold reacting quite favorably towards the newest announcement of Path of Exile: Betrayal. He was talking about how this upcoming league might cause him to switch from being a pure World of Warcraft streamer to a variety streamer (if not at least Path of Exile for the league). Similarly, GiantWaffle just started playing the new Delve league today possibly in anticipation for the upcoming league. In addition over on Twitch, there has been a great deal of new players, many of whom are ex Diablo 3 players. While that’s going on, Diablo 3 will be getting a minor seasonal update with some small rebalancing (read: higher numbers). Many indications are pointing that this upcoming league, we may see GGG and Path of Exile go much more mainstream.
Although I am a day late to the impression write up game, I wanted to present my thoughts on the upcoming patch 3.5 Betrayal League/Expansion for Path of Exile nonetheless. I did write up some ideas that I had hypothesized for what the new league would entail and want to see how they compared to what we will get.
