Played for a very little bit, did first trial. This has to be the worst intro to a league mechanic ever. They just dump you right in and you you an info popup that's the height of the entire screen. I ended up losing, because I didn't read it and apparently I couldn't damage the enemy totems?

I was completely uninterested in this league but now I’m gerning FOMO

Shit league:


who gives a flying fuck about challenge rewards

those who want new models for portals, new pets and don't want to look like a hobo anymore?


I thought the only reason people used those things was to annoy other players in town by looking as garish as possible while covering as much of the screen as possible.

Half-way through act 2 and the performance is absolute garbage, I'm not sure if it's just me but the game is stuttering and the loading screens are at least 30 seconds sometimes (NVMe SSD), see you all next league.

I do not have big performance problems during playtime but I did notice long load times into towns. But I got an old PC, I am used to game not running at 60 fps all the time :D

The game is running at 60 - 90 fps just not 144 and above which is what I'm used to.

I know I know first world problems and all but I can't play anything under 120 fps, even worse when the FPS is not consistent.

Did you try playing around with Vulkan/DX11? Change other graphic options?

They did changes to video stuff in patches before this league, I know some people complained how it runs. Then they said they are going to fix it for release, I guess they didn't fix it enough.

I tried all the options but to no avail, though I did notice DX11 made the FPS slightly better so if anyone else is having the issue maybe try that.

Leveling with Guardian is interesting. As soon as you get Sentinel of Radiance (that was buffed just before release lol, now has more life and soaks 20% of incoming damage) his RF ability murders everything except bosses. You just run around and teleport him with convocation and just cast other stuff vs rares or in boss battles.

I have the same 144 fps I had (framecapped) before this (and before the infamous 'poe2 particle system' patch that ruined game for many a player), but I'm a weirdo that uses DX12 instead of the other two options (smoothest experience for me for some reason, but I have very beefy CPU (7950x3d) so may be CPU hiccups are less noticeable with DX12 provided your system is high-end enough)

DX12 doesn't even work for me at all, I just get a black screen after starting the game.

Yeah, they fucked up the performance for me, too. I've also seen Ben having problems with Sirus' Maze where it kept flickering.
Either way, the mechanic just seems very boring to me so I'll probably skip this league.
