The game is in Open beta as stated by the developers. They are offering cosmetics and small things in the cashshop for those that wish to support the game. While I dislike commenting on threads like these, I wasnt going to let misinformation be spread about a game with developers that are working very hard on a well thought out game. The game does crash, beta's have bugs and being DDOSed on top of it isnt helpful either. Ive played since early closed beta and can say that its worth playing despite the server instability.

 

Best wishes

What part of BETA is hard to understand?

 

Probably the part where the game is freely open to all comers, a promise of no more wipes has been made, and the cash shop is open for business and taking customers' orders right now.

sounds more like a launched game than a Beta. At least going by those definitions, but its not the only game to claim to still be in Beta while charging for in game content and having a working cash shop etc. It is a bit of a contentious issue i know.

The client build also states Beta, so while it may have opened it's cash shop, the beta has not ended yet. Following Banquetto's reasoning however, wouldn't this make any "beta" of an MMORPG only accessible by pre-ordering a product also constitute as a "Launched" game?

I'd rather game developers give beta access for free and open the cash shop if they want to. It at least gives them some income, but at least players don't have to pay upfront to play for a product that may be bug-ridden or incomplete.

Considering the crashing issue doesn't seem to be major based on player feedback, I'm more inclined to believe that there might be some compatibility issues between your computer's hardware and the game, or that your hardware may not be properly up-to-date. When you crash, do you receive an error and what does it say?

Madness, in post #9 I directed the OP to the official forum and how to correctly address "bugs" as well as the link to "Known Issues" on the official forums.

Most games are niche

If you can't kill it, don't make it mad.

So far, I've made it to level 20 and only had one client crash (BSOD conflict with SB driver).  But I've had way too many disconnects, when the server gets over loaded.  But that should calm down once they get more server resources.

Well they call it a beta, I paid nothing. It says beta on their site. So I guess its a beta.

I think part of the problem is, what constitutes launched for a f2p game after they have opened the cs and said there will be no wipes?  This isn't just a Path of Exiles issue, but once you have opened a f2p game to the general public, and allowed purchases from the cash shop, and have said there will be no more wipes, what distinguishes that from "launched" product? (I'm not being facetious, at least not intentionally, I think this is an issue that occurs in many f2p games but doesn't really get talked about all that much).

Well, look at what GW2 did. First of all, they tested the cash shop by giving everyone in beta a bunch of gems to spend. Then, they tested the credit card gateway by asking beta testers to make a $1 purchase (which would then be refunded) with their credit cards. Of course, this was prior to final character wipes so none of these giveaways persisted into launch.

Seemed to work just fine.

Well this is still in beta...

 

Plus I dont think I ahve had the game ctash once since i started testing last summer.. yes I have had a few disconnects especially when OB went live but still thats not bad at all for an indie company I ahve seen far far worse AAA games in beta..

 

@op if your game is actually crashing then it could be an issue with your PC as I have played this now on multiple PCs and laptops without a single crash.

 

Also OP you should be on the POE forums reporting any bugs not crying on these forums.
