Plague star event

Recommended Posts

What's wrong with ghouls though? I kind of like that there are some recurring events in the open worlds now, even if I've gotten all the stuff I want to get out of those already.

It spices things up.

It's pretty much guaranteed that it wouldn't have started over the weekend anyways.

Plague Star will probably come during the Summer, chill.

Based on past patterns it should have been in like Feb. So that why people keep asking. Summer is kind of late. Should be in the Spring the latest.

We have had Plague Star 2 times, there isn't a pattern yet, DE hasn't even said if Plague Star has a schedule like Thermia (Bi-weekly), so we might has well just guess DE is saving the event for wen most of their players are at home.

Oh joy another thread... it will get here when it gets here, I'd say gas city rework and nightwave II are higher on the priority list.  They'll only pop out plague star if there is going to be a delay to the next intended 'patch'.

With that amount of complaining no doubt that it will release very soon. But also, how long until these threads, specially obvious ones like this one, start to be reported for spam?

At which point they were just rolling out Nightwave and likely want to get usage stats for that before throwing any other big events in.

And they've been working on the PoE remaster, which likely required changes with the event to match.

People can stop asking because they've been told several times already that it won't be until at least after Tennocon at the absolute earliest.

That is enough to figure out the time between the two and when it could be expected again. That's the start of a pattern.

They have stated it will be returning or "Not been forgotten" but never saw anything about after tennocon. So if you have links I would like to see it. I will only agree that spamming the forums will not change anything at this point.

There is very little if anything that needs to be changed. All the key interaction points are still in the same spots. Only thing that could be changed is the boil in the middle of the map. Which they have left room for. So there shouldn't be enough work to drag it out till mid July.

Not really since DE hasn't confirmed that thats the pattern, until they say that plague star has a pattern its just a random event DE does from time to time.

No. They haven't been told by DE. They've been told by the rest of the community.

You don't drop a big event around a piece of content immediately after updating that piece of content. You need to vet it internally, and make sure the event still works properly. So it wasn't going to drop immediately after PoE Remaster.

And you don't launch a big event weeks before a big scale real world event because you're in prep mode for that event, so it wasn't going to launch in these few weeks leading up to Tennocon.

There may be reasons for delaying it further past Tennocon, but pretty much anyone with any programming experience could have told you "It's not happening before Tennocon" as soon as PoE Remaster was first announced.

You have no idea what changes they've made in event scripting on their backend. I can pretty well guarantee there were at least some. With the kind of spaghetti code DE usually works with you have to be careful of the spinoff effects that any little change could have, and with the other resource commitments over the last month and a half combined with that it's really not surprising it was pushed back.

No, it really isn't.  If it were consistent three times, then it would be reasonable to think maybe there's a pattern, but even that could easily be coincidence and it would be more reasonable to assume that until proven otherwise.

Patterns can change. Based on the fact we know there is going to be more and the time between whats has happen there can be expectations. I am not claiming at any point there is a correct date it will happen. So to claim that expectations are wrong you should think a little more about it.

So DE Reb is not DE? Because she said it on prime time two weeks ago. You're whole argument is trying to convince people your logic is the correct one. You don't know any more than anyone else on what has happen on the backend of the game or their internal time lines. I am only participating in a conversation that I think July is too late. If you don't like my conclusion based on the information said by DE that is fine but there is no reason to go off about it not being YOUR conclusion.

So you have no proof for what you said, I highly doubt they'll wait until tennocon, unless they giving switch another way to get plague zaws and plague arcanes

What are you talking about? Reb has never once said when Plague Star is going to be... and that was literally the point you were making... why are you arguing against yourself now?

DE has *never* said when the next plague star will be. They've said they haven't forgotten it. That's it. I don't know why I have to provide context to defend your side of the argument.

You're right. And when you have no info you should assume the most likely timeframe. I don't like such a long delay either. That doesn't change that it's the most likely. A Plague Star to tide us over until the bigger content drops later this year is the most likely outcome since there's stuff laid out until Tennocon already.

Is it possible it drops before Tennocon? Sure. But being possible and being what I want doesn't make it likely.

You can doubt it if you want. That doesn't make it less likely. There's no reason for them to care if switch users have the plague parts immediately. They're not needed in any way shape or form to have a complete gameplay experience, they're just a "would be nice" cherry on top.

You're just trying to twist words to cover yourself now. I never said anything other than the facts and that MY conclusion is it will happen before tennocon. If you want to keep quoting stuff and saying same things other people said (myself included). Keep going. Have fun by yourself.

They could put plagued zaw parts into bounty rotations if they don't want to bring back Plague star.

Actually Hok's daily special can have one of the parts sold on the weapon even outside the event. 

Though much like Ghouls, I'd appreciate a few infested encounters. I'd like to have some Ostron infested units to, they can't really be immune and not getting caught.. 

Ooo infested ghouls.. 

The last time the boil showed up I recall some context that made it seems like it should be getting stronger when it returns...

Yea, but you don't get the blueprint for it. And the combo is mostly garbage

As long as it has the viral and is mildly status based it basically beats over half of the codex melee. 

Pupacyst is a reasonable imitation in the meantime.
