Players are again disappointed with Path of Exile: Scourge

  • The Path of Exile community is disappointed by the lack of response from the Grinding Gear Games development team to the bad Scourge rolls.

    Prior to this, Path of Exile: Scourge introduced a unique mechanism in which players can place items or maps in Blood Crucible. After killing monsters in Nightmare Realm, besides rewards such as POE Currency, players will also get a pair of Scourge rolls with positive and negative effects. Then, Blood Crucible will corrupt items.

    As the community said, the negative effects of Scourge rolls will cause the positive items to cannot function when corrupted items. This situation is irreparable to players who spend POE Currency to buy items with buff effects. Although GGG released an update last week that brings improvements to Path of Exile: Scourge, these are not enough for players.

    The negative effects of Scourge rolls exceed the vast majority of positive effects on specific items or maps. Although the recent update has improved map scrolling to some extent, this “band-aid solution” is like the developer just intends to apply a major benefit to the map and complete it.

    Some players believe this problem needs to be solved urgently. In fact, the recent series of Path of Exile: Scourge updates have brought some comfort to players. Including POE Currency and the addition of new items have been recognized by most players, so they are also willing to give GGG enough time to improve existing problems step by step.

    However, GGG has also stated that they will improve Atlas and fix bugs that still exist so far in order to release extension 3.17 in time. Atlas itself is large and may require a lot of development time to make it better.

    Aside from these unsolved problems, Path of Exile: Scourge is worth the players’ energy to explore more interesting tasks. If the task is difficult, players may wish to POE Currency Buy to upgrade their equipment and improve their strength.
