As a community we should re-visit honor and honor rewards. I logged in today to finally hit the last honor progress before honor 4 (I do not think there is a way to check progress). I got a honor 3 orb, opened it up and got a mediocre champion shard and not even a keys worth of fragments. For how long it takes to increase honor level this is just a negligible reward. I do not even want to talk about the terrible rewards for hitting honor level 5 at the end of the season.
Rewarding honor levels is currently a failed system.
Here is what I propose.
TLDR: Make honor meaningful, because it never has been since its inception.
For those that don't know the Reddit admins do take action when you falsely report someone is self harming because they criticize a game you like and yes I was informed in a message that this post upset some of you bad enough you did so.
Imagine simping for a company so hard you fake suicide threats.
Last league was Path of Exile hitting new highs.
Map sustain was so nice every player even bad ones could focus on the part of the game their like, doing maps, instead of the parts they don’t like, focusing on the Atlas + sustain worries. Players with sub-optimal builds could even run regular white maps and sustain while missing out on the better rewards map mods give.
So GGG lowered awakened rewards and made sure ultimatum monsters can’t drop maps.
Harvest allowed build diversity and the average player could FINALLY try crafting. Sure it allowed people to make amazing gear but it also allowed players to try builds they never could afford before. People said it would cause people to get bored of the league but instead it allowed interest to stay longer.
Now harvest is basically a joke with many players commenting how now without it they couldn’t dream of affording certain builds, instead they get bored of the new league faster.
This leagues “reworks” even though they hyped them like improvements ended up being just nerfs or made content flat out bad.
Breach still isn’t a good source of splinters, perandus made worse along with wisdom scroll sales removed to spite the players, good betrayal rewards needed to tier 4, ect.
Texture streaming 100% feels like one of those “improvements” added to an app or website so the UI guy can justify their job just like the reason we can’t remove bloom. It feels like the focus more about forcing gameplay ruining cosmetic changes over the ability to actually play the game now.
Then outside of game changes the entire communication between GGG and the community feels like another flawed “improvement”. It used to be there were tons of spoilers and community engagement leading up to leagues but now it is nerf manifestos plus silence. The communication is basically non-existent especially when it comes to not punishing players in some way.
It feels like GGG resents the player base for enjoying what the game has begun so they are attempting to destroy what the players enjoyed about Path of Exile that they don’t want in PoE 2.
Can’t release a sequel only to find out people just want the original improv... keep reading on reddit ➡
And you can't say this opinion is popular. Way too many women "joke" about how their husband is another kid they're raising or can't do laundry, feed themselves, etc etc.
The worse is they expect the guys to just magically change. Why would they? You already checked all the reward boxes for them being the manchildren they are.
Besides some well-deserved nerfs, to summarize my feelings about this league, it's like we transitioned from "broken" to "meh".
I think that the atlas tree and master missions were nerfed a bit too much - to the point that I barely feel excited to buff up some areas anymore.
But more importantly, the league mechanic is outright disappointing and feels like a drag. I sincerely hoped it was my own rotten luck, but after quite some time in red maps I am beginning to fear that it's not. And I haven't even felt like running my inscribed ultimatums. With the current reward pool, trials feel like too much work/risk, for only meager, predictable returns.
Did anyone else have a similar experience?
That's all. Move on with your life.
The armour drops from Shaxx when you level up in the crucible have some of the worst rolls I've seeen. I haven't seen anything over a 58 point at this stage. This means that I have deleted every piece of armour that has dropped. Can we just remove them from the loot pool because you can just buy it anyway.
However, if I want a full armour set I can just buy it from him and most of the time it has better rolls than any of the random drops.
Show us your pulls, WL rewards come in 1 hour
Edit: G3 Valverde and Nkunku, finally good picks after bad ones all year. Valverde fits my team perfectly
Algorand is a project I have been investing in since the beginning. I am currently earning $0.40 daily, and I plan to expand on that number shortly. I purchase ALGOs on Coinbase Pro, then transfer them to my Algorand Wallet.
Today, ALGO had an all call where they announced they would be offering a new staking policy in 2022. Current staking rewards are 6-7% APY. The current proposal for 2022 is anywhere from 7.5 to 30% APY. The only stipulation next year will be that in order to claim the 7.5 to 30% rewards, you have to stake your ALGOs for 3 months at a time. Early withdrawals forfeits any rewards. This process is called "governance" and you'll be able to vote on new ALGO policies. Each ALGO you stake equals 1 vote.
It's pretty simple.
We only get 1 of them and they're unidentified trash.
Lucky rolls would at least make them worth looking at and using.
So, as some of you who played WT have noticed, a guy in the top 3 got removed. This was me. I am a pretty big whale in this game as I believe I should invest in my hobbies, as dumb as that sounds. Naturally, I run out of orbs a lot, and because of work I never have the time to play wt a little. Last weekend, I had taken off from work and decided to FULLY commit myself to WT after never playing it since Int piccolo came out. I needed orbs, that's it, this would be a 1-time thing. I spent, yes here it comes, 70+ hours grinding my dirty asshole off in WT, becoming sleep deprived in the process, feeling sick and whatnot. I was in a discord server with people in VC ALL THE TIME, this is important because people will say I cheated (which I will come back later). I had personally asked these people to keep me company, you might imagine how it feels way better hearing some people talk in the background compared to sitting in silence for 70 hours in a row. Every single one of these people can vouch for me, including some mods on this subreddit. 1 hour before the deadline, at that time it was 7 AM for me and I had sat through the entire night again, I got removed from the leaderboards. Everyone expected it was just a checkup to prove legitimacy but today I woke up and my points had been changed from 630 million to 0. Yes, a big whopping 0.
Here is the important part, the part I was going to come back to: I did not cheat, and this is important. I did not get banned, why? as stated I did not cheat. In any scenario IF I had cheated, I should have outright been banned, but no. Again, I'm a whale and the only thing currently going through my head is the fact I'm being sucked dry because they know I spent (past tense because they can only dream of me EVER buying stones in this shitty game again) money on this game every single banner.
Why did this happen? I don't know. Is it fair? Fuck no, I'm beyond pissed and have no hope left for me and this game. Rewards, that sucked I really needed the orbs, but my main gripe is the fact I dedicated myself to their mode for over 70 hours and them taking away all that effort. That should not be Allowed, I worked for this.
End of rant, I most likely will never touch this game again, but I sincerely wish each and every one of you good luck on current and future pulls <3
P.S. yes I have screenshots of both my points today and during the WT, the score today even shows I have wins + all missions etc. so there is no rea... keep reading on reddit ➡
The year is 2053. Every country's fiat has been replaced by Walmart reward tokens. It's decentralized on a blockchain and has nothing to do with Walmart, but was gradually adopted because of its stability and the name remains. Due to the global redistribution of wealth resulting from DeFi, a loaf of bread costs between 0.01 and 0.03 Wallys anywhere in the world.
This REALLY needs to be fixed or how it's done needs to be modified to include some mechanic that if you get past 50% of the mission you no-longer able to kick or once the mission is Done it's a greyed out option. This is literally the one thing I can clearly say will STOP me from playing this game. This is like D1 with not having Ghallahorn in the RAID. Bad enough Once youre a Devastator you automatically get kicked but at the rewards screen of a Gold Tier (20% chance of Legendary). Yes I know 1000 post on this but it needs to be Changed !
So the last reward for Step 3 is a Mantine encounter. One of the tasks in the last step which is Step 4 is to take a snapshot of Dodrio/Mantine/Skarmory in the wild. If you snapshot Mantine during your encounter then you achieve this and don’t have to wait around looking for these so far rarer encounters like I now have to. There was no way of knowing the task prior to that reward so just want to make sure other people don’t miss out and make my mistake of not looking ahead
