Since GameGuard essentially works like a rootkit, players may experience unintended and potentially unwanted side effects. If set, GameGuard blocks any installation or activation of hardware and peripherals (e.g., a mouse) while the program is running. Since GameGuard monitors any changes in the computer’s memory, it will cause performance issues when the protected game loads multiple or large resources all at once.
Installing a root-kit with known performance issues? Yeah, no thanks.
But also installs a root-kit like anti-cheat program.
This performs similarly to an anti-virus product in terms of how low level it is and the memory / process monitoring it does. However, the difference is in how it functions.
Anti-virus products have a black-list, i.e. processes that are known to be from malicious content, and they’ll prevent those from running and any processes that are not on the black-list are allowed to run. This is “If I don’t know you’re bad, I’ll let you run.”
Game Guard has a white-list. This means only processes that are on the list are allowed to run and any processes which are not on the white-list are prevented from running. This is “If I don’t know you’re okay, I’ll stop you running.” This can result in perfectly valid applications being prevented from running because they’re not (yet) on the white-list.
I don’t care how good a game is if it does this sort of nonsense.
From what I have heard (which is not much, as the game seemed bad), the game is more like Lost Ark? Like basically a copy paste. And not like PoE, Wolcen, Last Epoch, Diablo 4 etc.
Edit: Lol, okay, it copies PoE in terms of selling all kinds of Stash space. About $150 to unlock stash space and similar
And, yeah, it is pure P2W trash. They essentially have RMAH. Paying for a “trade key”.
As well as selling power directly. They are literally selling gear. And crafting mats.
You get 3 character slots by default. Additional ones cost ~$8.
Being better than D:I seemed like a no-brainer. Nearly any activity in the world is better than D:I.
Not sure this one manages to however.
I like how the majority here pontificates "I heard, I saw in Ytube, …but I do not play the game, "…
Please, if you do not spare the embarrassement for yourself, spare us that play the game this drivel.
As real people instead of clowns have observed: this game can be called: Soft-P2W. Personally i would not even call it that way. It is simply P2C that mean: Pay to have Convenience.
Game is superb and makes DI a bad joke in nearly all departments. The depth, gear, near infinite customization, Zodiac, Rune system with Skill and Link Runes (a echo of Skill and Support Gems in POE) is what is needed and more from D4.
I play heavily DI (exclusive F2P, Hell 5, 5700CR, 630 Resonance and 277 Paragon), but have switched to Undecember and will play both.
If D4 would not be as good or better than Undecember Gear/Zodiac/Rune-System/Mastery then they will be in for a big surprise.
