Well I’m now playing for the first time! So far it seems good, but I have one thing driving me insane.

The Scale HUD option is only changing the size of the main bar at the bottom and not my portrait or the HUUUGE minimap in the top right.
Is there a way to shrink these other UI elements?

Ive decided to play mage-y and did no prior build research. I am going to play and hope it all works out lol.

Every streamer I've checked out has lost all their progress and been sent back to the beginning of the game or the beginning of act 2.

just woke, stuff still on fire huh? That is a huge bummer and im not going to sit here defending it, but I do feel for the team, game seemed to have some nice momentum going and this all probably reversed all that.

Might just play offline tbh, and do another character later when I know things are woking for sure. I never actually played any of the other arpgs with other ppl lol.

Logging on was a pain but it was flawless after. About 10-12ms of lag at all time. The progress stuff is apparently patched already.

I feel like I've been really lucky or something. Only took me about 10 min to get into the game and been able to get back on consistently.

The only real glitches I've had is when you exit a dungeon sometimes the character will be stuck facing one direction, and that can be fixed by just doing a skill.

Other than that? Been running smooth at 1440p/Max Settings/60 FPS, with no lag hampering.

apprently im unlucky because its borked again then? I still cant get to a online game and im seeing ppl say, like u, it was fine the last few hours and now its fucked again. Still, my point stands, and playing offline and remembering "oh yeah I really liked the beta" is a bummer :D

Yeah this is my feeling atm also
The release actually makes things worse

But I'm not refunding, I think this has potential
The devs just gotta crunch and fix the bugs

I'm happy to play some offline while they sort out the server issues. I can try out different early builds and see what skills I like and don't like

Yeah the bugs suck; I don’t get too attached to my first couple characters in these games so not too worried.

Can you backup saves in offline mode?

yes? it's the whole reason why its seperate from online because you can alter saves and shit.

I didnt say anything about refunding. In fact, unless you knew nothing about the game and went in completely blind (which is weird to me), and this goes for any game, especially any PC game, this whole "DOESNT WORK REFUND" thing is utterly bizarre to me. The fact that its not working properly doesnt change the fundamental game I wanted, its just borked right now which sucks, sure, but i dont suddenly NOT want to play it anymore. Anyway, some random tidbits:

- these offshoot little side dungeons (the green stairs) werent in the beta. Nothing special but adds a little to each zone I guess.
- something is off with vsync because if I turn it off my mouse cursor cant target things properly (makes looting a PITA)
- chain lightning is still awesome.
- drop rate is understandably "nerfed" from beta, getting a lot less skill drops and gear of course. I "had" to buy chain lightning from the lady.

edit: oh im in, seemingly with no issues. fingers crossed.

Why is every streamer just shitting on the game in every way they can. Is this the new, edgy, Twitch thing?

Guess I'll just try it for myself.

I like the game a lot. Just need a little patching here and there with things and it'll be great. Just stuck on a boss because of some weird lag with everything. Maybe it'll be cleared up by tomorrow.

What?

Cohh loved it, itmeJP likes it and played ~12 hours straight, Bikeman and his crew are having fun with the game etc. Sure sampling is small, but game seems to be pretty well received even with online issues.

Anyone else running into an issue with... trees? Like this?

You see the base of the tree and the shadow and sometimes tiny shadows from foliage in the branches but... no tree?

Guess I had bad luck then. Clicked on few and they were just complaining and making fun of stuff that didn't look like an issue at all.

What is this memory leak issues people are mentioning in their Steam reviews? I haven't encountered any, and I only have an 8GB RAM. Played for over an hour, never went below 100 fps @1280x960 (GTX 1070, Ryzen 5 1600).

I've just resigned myself to offline mode, I have terrible dedication to these games anyway and rarely play online, might try the online when it's stable with another character type.

Currently going for a sort of "swashbuckler" role, 1 melee weapon, 1 pistol. Hey, dual wielding stuff doesn't suck ass at the start of an ARPG for once.

They have tech to make sure the tree isn't obscured when they need to show info
It's every tree though, in that area. Feels much more like a bug. I have noticed a pillar or rock wall disappear when I walk behind it. The trees, though, I am nowhere near and I just see the stump like base graphic and maybe a shadow. Always. They are never there. The image above was from a post in the bug thread on Steam, and displays the exact thing I see. I just thought I'd ask if any of ya'll have successfully seen a tree yet.

Game is alright so far, in Act 2 and most of my issues is some funky shit with hit detection and black loading screens where I have to reload the game. Those could possibly be their servers having issues though so who knows. I'm just playing through to get to end game because thats what I am most curious about and want from an ARPG nowadays.

Soooo I caved and bought the game after seeing some parts of it played on Twitch.
Only like 1 hour in but HOLY HELL this feels good. I am somewhat baffled by the overall quality of the game because at least for me it came out of nowhere.

I seriously hope the 2nd part of the game is as polished as the first couple of hours (it probably won't be but I'll see, when I get there)
So far, no issues for me, gonna play some more.

Is this an "always online" game? People say you can play offline but that doesn't necessarily mean the same these days.

You can play offline as much as you want, characters won't carry over though - you either have online or offline characters (anti-cheating measurement)

oh wow ailments actually hurt. Shock dmg dot from chain lightning is dope. Normal is deffo more difficult than the beta was (beta was probably on "story"), mobs take much longer to kill (still die fast tho), yup Im sure loving this.

Now give me my summons RNGesus :(

edit: lol as I type that, the lady has both the golem and the zombies for sale (and the leech that mind controls too damn), cant afford both tho noooooo

Bladestorm is disappointing. Thought it'd work like in PoE and D3 where it's a smooth channeling skill but it turns out to be an attack that spins in short duration/distance.
