The patch on gog is 12  MB and on steam 1.3 gb : what's that mean ?

 

It probably means GOG wrote a patcher which edited the game files, whereas Steam simply downloaded replacement modified game files.

 

However unless I am mistaked, this refers to patch 3.04 and not the hotfix, which is still not released.

No, you should get exactly the same update. Think about it like this: suppose that PoE has a game file that is 1.3GB big and Obsidian change it in the patch. There are two ways to update your game file: (i) you can completely download the new, updated game file and replace the old one or (ii) you can run a script which modifies your existing game file with the changes.

 

As I understand it, GOG tries to do (ii) when they can, which is part of the reason their patches are usually a few days later than Steam ones.

Don't worry about the GOG patch, it is like JerekKruger said. GOG basically update the difference between the files, while Steam doesn't give a feck about gigantic files, so replace everything. Hence the massive difference in file size. I've just updated my own game with GOG's patch, and it states 3.04 in-game, and works as advertised.

 

The patching takes a few minutes*, due to the above-mentioned process, so don't panic if it looks like the patching has stopped responding.

 

*at least on Linux, which I have, but I assume it takes a little while on Windows too

My suspicion is that Obsidian overestimate the power of Soulbound weapons [...] whilst drastically underestimating the power of durganisation.

 

This.
 

But I guess it's too late to expect them to revisit this now.

Indeed, I was holding out hope that the delay in release was a result of Obsidian rethinking the change, but if it was it seems that they have stuck to their guns.

My suspicion is that Obsidian overestimate the power of Soulbound weapons. Particularly they overestimate the power of the various bound spells and on hit abilities, whilst drastically underestimating the power of durganisation. This is a huge shame, because it results in most Soulbound weapons being fairly weak.

I don't know why Obsidian have engage in this nonsense - tweaking items and so on. Looks like there no any other problems in game, exept poor sabres and Unlabored blade - no trash abilities, no bugs... Every time, when community ask them to pay attention on сertain issues in game balance or bugs, they listen just what they want listen and skipping past huge amount of useful information, and tweaking things when nobody asked for.
Seems they live in somewhat parallel universe. I don't know how to explain their behavior line.

I agree with this sentiment. I am sick and tired of the tweaking that adds nothing to the fun in the game...nothing

It's out. It'll be a few days for GoG as customary, I suppose.

Unless someone here is a GOG employee, I doubt they can say for certain, but probably a lot smaller than the Steam patch.
