Developers on the path of exile become victims of internet dram

  • “Path of Exile” developer Grinding Gear Games and its community became victims of an extremely stupid scam. A disabled person said in a post on the “Legal Advice” subordinate that it banned them from exile because they used POE Currency to help them play. The post sparked discussion and anger and quickly spread throughout Reddit and social media.

    An editor named poelegalthrowaway00 wrote in his now deleted post: “After an accident at work, I cannot use one hand and a few fingers.” This is to the thread image link. They explained they could not play “Path of Exile” because the game requires players to frequently use potions to survive. The potion is bound to the number keys and must be pressed every few seconds. “I can’t actually press 4 keys every few seconds, so I used a macro that automatically runs for me.”

    Obviously, the problem here is that using this type of automated program violates the terms of service of Path of Exile (and most multiplayer games). POE Chaos Orb can disrupt the game and gain a competitive advantage. In more complex situations, macros can play the game with no manual input, such as in the notorious gold digging robot in World of Warcraft.

    But using macros to assist with disabilities is a very different field. Like many ARPGs, there are many clicks and buttons in Path of Exile, the game moves at a quick speed, and there are many actions on the screen. Except for some basic knowledge such as the ability to rebind keys, there are not a lot of built-in options that can help more readers use the “Path of Exile” more easily. Some players even go to great lengths to design character-specific characters for players with disabilities.
