Grinding Gear Games, the team behind the popular action-RPG Path of Exile, recently asked the community to submit questions to them so that they could answer them with the various members of their team. The hope was to show that they’re listening to the fans (which they’re actually really good at, as past posts and Q&A’s have shown) but also that they have an answer to some of players’ more burning questions. With the questions submitted, the team has been slowly answering them, and now, another batch of them has been highlighted.
For example, one player asked if the Cyclone skill would be adjusted anytime soon, noting how it’s not only hard to use, but it also often gets players killed because you can get stuck on things. The team stated that not only would you see changes, but they’ll also be posting an update on that later this week.
Another player asked a more personal question, one that pondered whether the Grinding Gear Games team was satisfied with the launch of the Legacy League, and if they were, did they play it once it launched. They replied that they were very happy with the launch, stating that not only did all teams handle the launch like pros, but that there were very few (if any) bugs to fix in the launch, and all records for concurrent play were shattered when it went live. However, because of schedule, they haven’t been able to play it themselves.
In regards to the upcoming update 3.0.0, players wanted to know if there would be new leagues released on the same day. The short answer is yes, there will be. Also, they wanted to know how many Skill Gems would be in this new update. The team notes that 2-4 are planned, but as with all things in Path of Exile, they want to make sure they’re ready before they’re launched.
There are more questions here, so be sure to check out the full Q&A to see what else was asked and answered, you might see a question you had for the Path of Exile team get answered.
