The goal of any major update release for any game is to launch with no real issues, but it’s rarely what you actually expect. So you can imagine how happy Path of Exile players and developers are that the launch of the latest update, Synthesis, occurred without any major server issues impacting playtime. And if you thought it was a result of smaller player numbers, you’d be largely wrong; while the update did have lower numbers than the Betrayal launch, it was only about 6.5% smaller.on the way very soon as well, so soon everyone will get to enjoy the glory of synthesis. Stay tuned for stream of the update tonight on OPTV at 8:00 p.m. EDT – our formal impressions will be out tomorrow in another new column!
