Post xmas the boys have been busy at GGG holding a whirlwind press tour of both San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Plenty of people got their hands on the game and the glowing reviews are popping up everywhere.

Our whirlwind press tour has been a huge success so far - we had record site traffic yesterday and may break that record again today. We will certainly be ordering more game servers when we get back to New Zealand tomorrow.
That is excellent news for the dev team and the game in general.

You also only have 2 more days to buy a supporter pack, before the option to receive one of the adorable kiwi mini pets vanishes forever.

As long as some of those ordered game servers are in Australia, I'll be happy...

A reminder that a lot of people still clamoring for a beta key - and of course in 22 hours they will be useless - do something nice for a stranger and log into your PoE account and see if you have any left over keys.

You can dump them here: http://www.pathofexile.com/forum/vie...d/68608/page/1

I have access at the moment but I don't want to start a game till I know it won't be deleted, are they going to reset accounts after the beta starts?

They're wiping when open beta starts (tomorrow morning), but not when they transition from open beta to full release, i.e. no more wipes after tomorrow

EDIT: Also, when they wipe, you keep your characters' names, so if you're worried about someone stealing your super-duper awesome name, create a char sooner rather than later, the wipe only affects skills and items.

It was just the progress I was worried about, thanks

I don't get much time to play games anymore so I could do without starting over a few months from now

news:

0.10.0 patch notes, balance explanations and how microtransactions work



Quote:
The final 0.10.0 patch notes are here. Carl has posted an explanation of our reasoning and process behind many of the changes, which you should also read! When we enter Open Beta tomorrow, we're opening up the microtransaction store with dozens of initial cosmetic options you can purchase. We haven't really explained how these microtransactions work, so this news post should hopefully offer a clear explanation.

6.30 am here in old sydney town and the Patch is live

To be fair, their download servers are probably getting hammered... hopefully it'll be a bit better when I get home tonight
