As the achievement that the massive influx of concurrent players happened to Path of Exile since the debut of new Betrayal League on December 10th has been firmly preserved by now, the creator Grinding Gear Games now is gradually shifting the company’s priority to another territory – in-game microtransactions. Actually, it’s beyond reproach for any company to exploit their enormous followers’ population, if there is one, for profitable objectives. However, Grinding Gear Games suspiciously seems to be hasty and push too far when it comes to making a fast buck. Reflecting on the latest sales promotion the company embarked on, you will come to realize that the truth is always self-evident.
Path of Exile really has made its way up to a high standing in the industry. Been launched for five years by now, there are certain periods of time that the game should glory in, but none of them is qualified to be competitive with the success of today. Based on the analysis of collected data, Path of Exile still keep up the great population of concurrent players on Steam that have never been seen in last five years. Although there was a time the population plummeting down and hit bottom at near 13,000, it immediately rebounded and back to normal at 46,000 with an hour. Generally speaking, Path of Exile has been hanging on the good grade under new Betrayal League’s tutelage. Many hopes that the game will live up to the industry’s expectations by breaking its current record shortly.
With the revival of Path of Exile emerging, perhaps it’s out of conceit or avarice, or both – Grinding Gear Games is making a bold move to dress his official forum up as a self-rolling billboard for promoting its in-game microtransactions. Now, as you can see from Path of Exile official Forum Announcements Section, three days in a row, the whole board is drowned out with peddling in-game costumes, weapons, and other gimcrackeries instead of announcing crucial updates or new contents. It’s getting worse while some of the microtransactions were overpriced and excluded themselves from ordinary gamers. Part of viewers called one new content’ advertisement as “subordinate racketeering,” and “in-game scam.” These Gaffes of the obtrusive promotional event culminate in the irony created by the latest published ads called “Super Stash Sale,” where the company trumpeted its newly-released discounted Stash Tabs while intentionally sliding over the issue that several severely damaged old Map Tabs hasn’t been fixed yet. And soon after that, this piece was as bold as brass attempting to cover up their ineptitude towards tech issues, and money-oriented policy by preaching “any new Map Tabs purchased will not experience this issue”.
