  1. To much complaining? I think so yes. Is complaining bad? I don't think so. I think the right amount of complaining can be very helpful to developers. But I understand that what bothers me, might not bother others, and what bothers them might seem trivial to me. Problem is that there are maybe a handfull really important issues, that at the very least warrants closer analysis, but it is drowned in a sea of (in my view) very trivial issues that (in my view) mods should fix. Examples... Game fixes (things that should be something developers do, because it often requires deep knowledge of the

  3. The game is to easy, some say, but at the same time they're annoyed the companions might have picked sub-optimal talents on their previous levels ups when they find them?
  4. Obviously, doesn't mean it's not a silly hyperbole. Just wanted to contribute to the hyberbole thread. It's all about finding problems, and not understanding how it would be if it was opposite. The system allows you to NOT rush to find characters early, so you don't end up finding a lvl 1 companion when your party are lvl 10, because then people would complain how finding a lvl 1 character near the end is worthless. And it would not make sense to find a lvl 9 character who has not spend any skill/talent points. He is lvl 9, and should be lvl 9 in all aspects. Everything else
  5. BG1 was infamous for ranged being stupidly OP compared to melee, sling on 6 ranged weapons and obliterate anything in the game. Kobold commandos? Anyway, it would be nice to see interrupt being more harsh on ranged.
  6. While I hate people whining about the game features, this also struck me as bad. I was incredibly surprised that my skeleton minion was confused... Wtf?
  7. I would prefer if I were able to change each new companions race/class/attributes and skills when I met them, that way I'd get full control over any bad decision they made. To me it doesn't feel right that Alroth is an elf, or a wizard for that matter. Alternative, let us at least meet all possible companions outside the ruins, they could have a social gathering, and then we can chose them there to avoid them being "wrong" in the players eyes. I'd like a mod where I could change every monster ability to align with what I think they should be.
  8. Increase xp req to lvl/decrease xp rewards = people complaining they have to do everything in the game to reach cap. Increase main quest xp+decrease side quest xp = people complaining about how meaningless doing side quests are, and how they should be more rewarding. Increase level cap = people complain the game is even more easy. Doing anything regarding in-game balance = people finding something wrong and complaining. I think it's really great to allow players the two choices: 1) do main quests and complete game 2) if 1 is to hard, do side quests to get higher level so y
  9. My racing bicycle, and gear, cost me roughly 3000$, I have now spend many more hours on PoE, they have fairly large margin to milk me before I'll feel like I made a poor investment Seriously, I got value from the core game and will buy dlc's. Some didn't get value I understand, and so fully get why they don't want to buy the dlc's. Calling dlc's bad is to generalize a lot, and very subjective. I never bought any Crusader dlc's, and still enjoyed the game, just had no need for more content. And in most games I kill the music fast anyway (PoE being a rare exception, very lovely track i
  10. If anyone can do that, it is a very small group. I can't do it. Since you talk big, can you make a video and link it for us? How about we learn from recent TB history. The game will be balanced much further over the next 6 months. I do find Hard like a Normal, but far from a total roll, unless you've found a super combo and if one did, why need buffs on top then? I'd say report it and see if they can nerf the power, but then are you really after that or wanting to prove that there are crazy powers, but also reap the benefit of those in the comfort of your own? I also would like to see a vid
  11. This is my problem, it just feels very wrong to allow it. Also the player casting fire protect on everyone, because player knows there is a wizard, and knows he uses fire magic.
  12. The following is not the truth, it is my view of things... Pre buffing ruins the sense of immersion for me, since in most of the cases your pre buffing will be due to beforehand knowledge. In most rpg games the player has knowledge, either from earlier games played or from actually knowing the game, of what is about to come. And so, I think, pre buffing ruins the whole sense of experiencing the fights as "real" (laughable concept in game) as possible. I absolutely love when I attack 2 lions, and only seeing 2, and then have 5 more rush me, changing an expected easy fight to hard. Tha
  13. THIS is exact the lie I was talking about! Espezialy computer games do NOT have that many code lines compared to other software. http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/million-lines-of-code/ Quake 3 engine (just the graphic) a bit over 300k lines. Cry Engine 2 or Age of Empire online a bit over 1 millions lines. Unreal 2 engine around 2 million lines. Compared to something simple like Google Chrome which has 5-7 million lines ... Facebook 60++ million lines (WTF??? what for??? *g*). Average modern car software 100++ million lines. Games are NOT that complicate a
  14. I was under the assumption, that despite most of their games having bugs, commercially they've nearly all been a success? And I still only see annoying bugs/features, have yet to see or hear about any game-breaking ones. But again, game-breaking is a highly subjective term. I stopped playing Elder Scrolls (Daggerfall I think), because at times a Lich, or similiar, would spawn in dungeons and often nuke me to death in a few seconds without me being able to target it. That was game-breaking to me, but not to others. I later found out there was a patch fixing this, but by then I had com
