Diablo 3 was fun out of the box, as opposed to lots of ARPG (PoE for example, feels like utter shit when you first pick it up). It was indeed broken and needed fixing because for multiple reasons that fun lasted about a week, but the core game and gameplay was one of the best ARPGs out of the box. On the other hand, Path of Exile seems to have blossomed into a very good, rich and deep game if you stick around long enough. But at the base of the experience there was and always will be a wooden, stiff, clunky Diablo clone.

PoE still feels like trash. Facts. It's a better game than before and will keep getting better.

But the Chinese own it now and they're not going to redo the physics.

Loot is more important than feel/physics/whatever in ARPGs, to me; by that metric, D3 was awful at launch.

POE has the most delicious loot. And delicious loot that makes even better loot.

Probably the best ARPG on the market by a fair distance. Blizzard is incapable of making a game with POEs complexities.

I still want a crack at that Korean ARPG.  It looks awesome.

Yeah its a real shame about Lost Ark

I'm def not hardcore ARPG demographic, which still surprises me considering D1 was the reason I got into online multiplayer gaming in the first place. But it turns out that once the game starts to get solved and the clear speed gets so fast I find the whole thing rather boring and pointless. D3 feels amazing but is completely empty of interesting gameplay for me. In fact the direction they took with rifts is like peak nuBlizz garbage fmpov. PoE has a bunch of bizzare content and jank I enjoy and when you have a good build the core gameplay while not as smooth or pretty feels fine because you are just murderwaving your wave through everything but again I just don't find the ratio of times I'm pleased with some play I made to how much time I play in PoE isn't high enough to warrant getting deeply into it.

Sooo... uh, who knew there was an xx19 bug triggering a non-Armageddon in the future.

Quote
One of the key mechanics in Fallout 76 -- specifically, its multiplayer mode -- is the ability to launch nuclear weapons. Doing this requires that players find (and decrypt) pieces of launch codes. Once they have all the pieces, they input a code into a terminal located inside one of the game's three nuclear silos. On January 1, this entire system died. Players wanting to access the silos found the doors locked shut (and on a timer lasting 9,999 hours), while the enemy ghouls who have to be killed and looted in order to obtain pieces of the codes flat-out disappeared from the map.

Players were left wandering a wasteland of confusion. What was going on? Was this a new storyline? Did Bethesda remember that the Fallout series was supposed to be about how nuclear weapons are a bad thing? And then it turned out that no, it was a bug caused by a bad piece of programming which broke when the real-life date changed from 2018 to 2019. Bethesda was soon on the case and launched (although not from a silo) a hotfix that took care of the issue. Or at least, it took care of it for now. It's hard to say for certain, considering that it only seems to manifest itself on New Year's Day. (On the upside, if it happens again, we can just rerun this article with the dates slightly changed.)

Roadmap

https://fallout.bethesda.net/en/article/7Lw6jVvhjzSNzuUMmKZgwn/fallout-76-inside-the-vault-our-roadmaps

We’ve just passed 100 days since the launch of Fallout 76!

There’s nothing like the start of something new - for you and for us, and having millions of you join us on this new adventure is humbling for our studio. Thank you for sticking with us as we figure this online experience out together, and we do mean “together.”

Thanks to your continuous feedback, we have been able to fix many of the top issues and have made numerous improvements to the game. We also make scores of changes under the hood that aren’t as visible. These include changes to improve performance, detect new exploits, and make the experience smoother for everyone. There’s still work to do, but we’re happy to report that game and server stability has increased over 300% since launch. We’re thrilled by how much everyone is playing, with an average time of 4 hours a day.

However, we know the game had a difficult launch, and we’ve made mistakes along the way. We share in your frustrations when we do. We’ll probably make a few more, and when we do, we will work to correct them as quickly as possible. Know that we’re fully dedicated to making this game the best it can be - and even more so, a platform for endless Fallout adventures for years to come.

To that end, we’re excited to announce some of the new free content we’ve been working on for Fallout 76 in 2019.

Thanks again for sticking with us. It’s a privilege to have such passionate and caring fans. We have big plans for 2019 and we’d love to hear your continued feedback on everything we’re doing. We hope you’ll keep sharing your thoughts with us on the forums, Reddit, in videos, and streams. Your voices push us to do better and your support has meant everything to us. We’ll do our best to earn it.

Which is a whole lotta nothing. I mean, they should give up and add NPCs. That's I believe the only thing everyone wanted to see in that roadmap.

At that point you might as well make a new game without all the baggage.

Retention rate has got to be dreadful, they could reboot it and go free to play to have a second launch, but that's a bit below the numbers / revenue they will want. I suspect they have a poor framework for going battle royale mode so that's not an option either. Most likely we'll see some life support patches while they cut it lose and move on to the next thing.

They should just retcon that all the Robots are all the fault of the Mechinist from Fallout 4. And then have the Silver Shroud bring in a new wave of settlers...  why so serious?
