From Friday to Sunday, the number of concurrent players on Steam dropped by 24%. The mood in the official forum and subreddit is recovering, but there are more farewell posts over the weekend, some players are really begging to delete the POE Currency changes, and most people in the Reddit community are not very happy.
Of course, what cannot be ignored here is that Steam’s own statistics do not necessarily represent the total number of players, and the decline in the number of players is not necessarily due to the dramatic changes in balance at that time. weekend. Despite this, many Path of Exile players are still annoyed, and some will take a break, hoping to improve or improve or completely delete the modified game mechanism. I can fully understand this frustration and disappointment, although basically I think the update is necessary and a good step, even if some places need to be re-adjusted as soon as possible.

Buy POE Currency in some cases will increase mana consumption until many pills are weakened. If used properly, it can almost always push attack and defense to atmospheric altitude.
