    Has the desync problem been fixed yet? I really want to give this game another shot but it was just too frustrating to be fun last time I played.

    The game had constant desync issues last time I played it ~6 months ago, haven't bothered to try since then. Never had bad ping, no lag, just tons of desync. I was always running around maps where nothing would spawn or nothing interacted with me, only to realize I was running into a wall but the game didn't recognize it for some reason. Even more fun was when I would get killed by enemies that weren't displaying attack animations or didn't even look like they were anywhere near me. Possibly the worst one, trying to aim AoE skills was almost impossible. Enemies I visibly hit weren't actually taking damage. I've never had any issues with any other game except PoE for some reason. I was never able to figure out why.

    A lot of people don't, a lot of people do. I've tried all sorts of guides and attempts to correct the issue but nothing worked so I eventually moved to other games.

    Saw a buff to Raise Zombies. Got an erection. Time to pick that summoner back up.

    Gah, I wish I didn't grind to end game with 4 different characters so I'm not so bored now. I can only do half an act at a time without the game feeling like a chore but I really want to hit end game to actually experience the full extent of the expansion and especially hit level 8 for those randomized uniques hehe.

    About month a go I played maybe 3 minutes and died because desync. Stopped right there. I haven't gotten into the game anymore. When I try to play I die and lose exp because desync.

    You don't lose exp when you die lmao. Dying does nothing in standard leagues.

    Have to wonder if you've ever even played since clear back in closed beta many years ago there was experience loss on death. However the one you quoted also had a pretty silly outlook considering it isn't until 85-90 that you feel the sting of exp loss.

    So lemme start by saying this: I was a huge D2 junky back in the day. One of the first REAL computer games I ever got as a kid. Diablo 2 and Starcraft were my first online multiplayer experiences. D2 holds a very dear and cherished part of my heart.

    Simply put, I was disappointed with Diablo 3... it just didn't grab my attention. I did not feel that same drive to keep going after beating normal mode as I did in Diablo 2.

    Granted, I have not played Reaper of Souls yet, and I haven't even booted up Diablo 3 since around when it first came out.

    All I play these days is competitive Starcraft 2. I occasionally play Planetside and I've recently become obsessed with Star Citizen. I've also tried a bit of FireFall.

    I got the Diablo itch and almost bought Reaper of Souls after hearing how much better it had made D3 along with all the other patches that have occurred since it was first released.

    I downloaded Path of Exile with very low expectations. Simply put again, I'm having a blast so far!! I've got a friend with me and we've done everything together up until act 3. This is where we got to the FFA arena. If I had better gear I feel like I could sit in that FFA arena for hours lol.

    To answer your question invadertim, so for I am really liking PvP. My buddy and I dueled about every 5 levels to see who was getting better as we went along. The PvP is definitely loads of fun. I can see it getting very complex and competitive at the higher levels.

    I really like PoE so far in general, though I'm not that far into it. It feels more like Diablo 2 than Diablo 3 does, and I like that.

    Ah right, forgot that it's cruel and merciless only. I've only played through normal on my Rampage char and I've died constantly so I thought I didn't lose exp. Forgot normal doesn't have a death penalty.

    A lot of the base items look decent and so do the uniques, however, if you want your gear to look really cool you'd have to invest money into cosmetics; and it really isn't that cheap.

    Been playing Path of Exile all this week. When I solo I have decent FPS but when I join groups I start to lag. Will be getting a better video card soon. Something mid range. But as a Gamer with a 5 year old PC I say POE is a good game to play.

    I'm not sure what is new content but overall is a game which is going to stay installed for sure.

    There's really not a whole ton of new content with this patch in the game world, aside from the masters of course. The majority of it is focused on the player's hideout which usually isn't unlocked until end-game.

    The random strongboxes/chests that can be enchanted are from the previous "dlc" along with vaal orbs and corrupted items/areas. As well as the Queen of Atziri area/drops.

    And finally the exiles are from the first patch/dlc.

    I probably missed something but that's the gist of it so if someone could fill in any gaps, thanks.

    Love the game, played it and still do. I just really HATE the UI. It just seems so out dated and cluttered.
