    This is one of those things where on paper it looks like a big deal but when you play, it doesn't make or break your game.


    Five characters doesn't change the fundamentals of building a party, doing a crapload of build tailoring, synergising different characters, putting them in formation, having different roles, etc., etc.

    I'll learn to live with the change, but I imagine that most of the people - like me - who are reacting negatively to the news, don't play a min-max game with their party composition, but pick parties of characters they think will be interesting for story purposes.



    This, it seems to limit the fun a freedom factor quite a bit, while at the same time I never noticed that the 6 man party setup would be bad in any way.

    I wouldn't mind a poll for backers for this issue, although generally speaking I think that dev should be deciding things, not backers.

  2. Found this on reddit when discussing the crowdfunding platform: https://youtu.be/hFX0f_YUn1I


    Personally I only knew that Fig exists and it looked like any other crowdfunding platform to me. I'd sort of expect Obsidian would have better conditions and less fees on Fig,

    at the same time Fig seems to be a lot more controversial and it seems like some people won't back the game just because of Fig.


    Anyway: seems like different backing options would be nice (so that people who don't like Fig could join), but maybe at the same time it could lower the total collected on Fig,

    which could make the game seem less desirable..? Donno. It's possible that for the majority of backers this won't be an issue.


    Personally, I would choose whatever platform offers the best conditions for Obsidian, I think that the fewer people leech of the donation the better. That being said I have no idea which platform would be the best for this.

  3. Hi there. Sorry for reviving this ancient thread, but I'm not sure where else to ask.


    Just noticed that my Obsidian title probably wasn't applied, here's the old submission and confirmation.

    Do I have to do anything to make it visible, or is it just something that mods/admins do?


    Thanks and have a lovely day!


    PS: Any plans for doing this for PoE 2? We definitely should.

  4. The Disappointer was touted as a powerful, reliable weapon, but it has consistently failed every one of its unfortunate owners.

    This is a terrible weapon that disappoints anyone who uses it. The gun appears well-made at first glance, but closer scrutiny reveals poor design and shoddy craftsmanship. Those who aren't fooled by its appearance still occasionally attempt to use it just to see if maybe the whole thing was made to look this way as an elaborate ruse, hoping that it is an artifact of extreme power, crafted by a master who desired to conceal its remarkable nature. It wasn't, and it isn't. Or isn't it?



    So I finally found enough time to play PoE again with the character from my original playthrough, now with White March and on PotD. I wanted an Arcanum-y look with a full plate and a pistol, and decided to keep the Disappointer and bring it to it's true potential :grin:

    To make it even better, I made a copy of it with Hellwax mold and took a feat so that I could wield both of them. PEW PEW.

    Really enjoyed the upgrade process, and in a similar spirit I was pleasantly surprised with the Unlabored Blade.




    Any fun stuff that you found or made in your playthroughs? Any ideas on whether we could expect something similar in the upcoming sequel?

  5. Also remember that GOG is polish company and it is easter time. No idea how strictly polish law follows religious holidays but I wouldn't hold my breath until next workday.

    They have holidays (it's also possibly the biggest/most significant christian holiday in predominantly catholic Poland).


    I talked to support and he told me they are volunteering to get the stuff done. And they did (released the patch <24hours), which is really great.

  6. Thanks guys, so far (54 hours in and far from the end) it's the best game I've played since VtMB.


    Huge thanks.


    Would definitely back again. 


    (Also I hade a huge fear that I would dislike the game.. maybe not because it's bad, but I'd realise that I'm old fart who doesn't enjoy games anymore (had problem with numerous recent rpgs ("rpgs"?))..guess what! Didn't happen, I've been up til 2-3AM everyday, just can't get enough  :aiee: So thanks for saving my soul I guess  :grin: 

  7. My only interest in the fulfillment site is to upgrade my late back pledge to go from digital to boxed copy which a very nice lady at Obsidian has assured me will be possible.  So yeah, I just want to throw  some more money at the project.  :)

    Exactly the same reason brought me here, I´d love to see it soon. Ideally before Christmas, would be a nice gift for myself :biggrin:
