I've had multiple characters up to levels 20 something and I think that not much really changes throughout.

Even in Torchlight you feel like you gain so much power with the tons of loot you get. Here... other than a few cool abilities you find here and there... not much else really going on.

Yeah, it's unfortunate that they had to go this route. The game would be so much better if it could be played offline. It's free to play so I guess there's that. I'm personally waiting to see what the guys from Titan Quest do with Grim Dawn.

I kind of like the way they did loot and gems. My character doesn't grow exponentially, sure, but he's constantly expanding in several areas and I always have options on how to approach situations. Sometimes I can be tanky, sometimes I can spam combos, and sometimes I kite. Sometimes I use minions and damage shields too. This is with a duelist. It's not that I'm a master of everything, I get stomped often, but that means that I was using the wrong skillset for the situation and I can always go back in, try something different and clear out the nest.

I've noticed combat picking up speed as I progress and I like it. Starting off things were painfully slow, but as I get a feel for my character the pace is picking up also, and it seems well coordinated. The better I get, the better the combat gets.

Edit: Keep in mind I play TL2 also, and like it just as well. The games just have different ideas and I appreciate both. In TL2 your character development is pretty linear. You feel it out when you start playing, decide which path you want to take and roll with it. Not much is going to change between level 10 and cap. And that's fun, because TL2 does it very well. Path of Exile I've got so many options my mind is constantly buzzing with builds I can try that change every couple minutes as I find good loot.

I play both games for different reasons.

I'm sorry.. you don't seem to understand. I've been playing this game since... before April I think... when they only had the 1 map after the first town and it's always been the same way. It's always been my number 1 complaint. It's not issues with their servers *today*... that's just how the game plays.

Never had an issue, and my connection blows a beastly one.

I was downloading at my max internet speed before the servers went live, then it slowed down. I've been dc'd once since playing. at 5pm
post #217 of 1100
Well, yesterday I was able to play fine. Today, in the past hour, I've gotten a BSOD from the game three times, twice while zoning in and once while just walking around. Seems to be a lot of people having these issues but nobody knows what the hell causes these crashes. It's super annoying and is making me not want to play.

EDIT

Annnnd BSOD again. No issues yesterday or most of today up until this past hour. The game is completely unplayable for some reason now.

none of my ten friends are getting bsod
post #219 of 1100
I'm getting it and one of my friends are getting it. Google it, its not an uncommon problem.

I'm about to be done with this anyways. Now I get some error at launch saying I need to run reclamation to fix it. Unfortunately, they dont have that implemented and the only way to get rid of that is to basically re-download the entire game. Ugh. I love that I didnt have these problems when I played like a year ago, but somehow through a year of beta testing, they've introduced this crap.

Still need a key to play? I don't have one or else I'd be playing.
