Recent data on Twitch and Steam indicate that the new transformation league of the action role-playing game Path of Exile has been well received. Let's see why.
What is Metamorph? In the new alliance, you start hunting monsters, and you can collect the essence from each defeated opponent. Finally, you combine these essences to create a unique boss opponent that must eventually be defeated, and then you get the corresponding amount of POE Currency. Related updates have also improved the balance of long-range weapons and added new equipment that affects almost all classes.
How to receive Metamorph? As the number of players on Steam shows, the new league may rise again. According to Steamcharts, the average number of simultaneous active players in November was 12,077. Now with the start of Metamorph, this number has risen to 17,792. An increase of more than 47%. The maximum number of simultaneous participants is 117,757. That's almost as high as the previous record in December. This shows that the new league has attracted many players. It can also be seen on Twitch that with the advent of the new league, interest in Path of Exile has risen sharply.
What's wrong so far? The previous leagues have not been well received by players. Mistakes and performance issues particularly plague the synthesis, which caused Path of Exile to lose player numbers. Developers have now shown that they have returned to altitude.
What is the most popular in the new league? Players are very passionate about new game mechanics that can create boss monsters. There are many possible combinations to create boss monsters, which make each battle special. Besides, this time the balance adjustment is also very recognized, especially for long-range fighters. Not only are remote games more fun, but the loot and POE Chaos Orb dropped are also better.
So Metamorph did it right and made sure Path of Exile is back on the path to success after a disappointing final league.
