\Last Friday, Path of Exile’s new league began to be successful, and each season, Blight will join the original cosmetics robbery box. However, the latest boxing theme – Dark Carnival – makes many players feel uncomfortable.
The new POE Items include clown costumes and big tents that you can put in your hideout, but obviously, only a few players like it.
Since the release of Lootboxes, Reddit and PoE forums have criticized for their new products. So Reddit user chrizoos wrote: « It’s perfect, but it’s also very inappropriate. What exactly? Nothing fits the PoE theme. »
Other Reddit users are happy to find the following text on the game homepage: « We are tired of the current trend of cartoon-style RPG games. The art direction of the Path of Exile is dark, gloomy, and realistic. We hope that Wraeclast is in our work. It’s terrible. »
The official POE forum also has criticism. Shimaran wrote, « This is a seasonal April Fool’s Day joke, » concerning last year’s critique of « Diablo Immortal. » On the other hand, Angry_steel wants a way to avoid the city altogether so that he doesn’t have to see « those things. » However, it not only criticized the new Lootboxen. Reddit user Smarackto praised Grinding Gear Games for « exploring new themes, rather than simply adding the next heavy red and black armor. »
The Dark Carnival Box is not the first community to split the city in Path of Exile, nor the first cosmetic that can’t purchase with POE Currency. As early as 2013, « Razer Footprints » was published in collaboration with Razer, leaving their role as the footprint of the small Razer logo. At that time, there were already many criticisms and a series of comments that developers called « short selling. »
