I was having the same issue.Maybe it's me but I really hate breaches. Unless I'm in a party I'm almost guaranteed to die every time and I prefer to solo. I'm having shoulder problems so playing a character with a lot of active arm motion puts me in agony, so I'm mostly using a flame totem or a flame blast toon. Either one gets overwhelmed almost immediately. But apparently others have mastered them as the economy is highly inflated now. Stuff I could buy for 10-40 chaos in prior leagues is now multiple exalts. My latest (and final) approach is to build my flame totem for a while longer (now level 77) to see if he can ever handle breaches. If not I'll probably step back from Path of Exile as I doubt I'll ever get to the high end material.
What do you have unlocked on the Atlas? Once I hit reds this league, I haven't gone more than one map in a row without getting another red drop, and generally I get 1 to 2 reds per run. You have to make sure you're running packsize.So I want to give another example of my map struggles...
I'm currently at 2095 map tiers. I just dropped my first T13 map.
I've been running my highest map except for about a 6 map break to run some overlapping sextants.
Working as intented?
Im at 60 unlocked in the Atlas. I ran every red map corrupted rare yesterday. Got about 8-9 done and now Im back at tier 9.What do you have unlocked on the Atlas?

You have to be very unlucky then. I don't think I've ran an Estuary that didn't drop at least one red map. And, I'm just under 60 unlocked (57 or 58).Im at 60 unlocked in the Atlas. I ran every red map corrupted rare yesterday. Got about 8-9 done and now Im back at tier 9.
You seriously play a different game than I do lol
Dang... I was once up to around 20 red maps on standard. Now I'm back to zero... I don't know how you guys do it!I had a slight dry patch with maps initially (around tier-5-6) but now I have 40+ red maps. (no tier 16 maps yet)
I am sitting at 104 on the Atlas and working on Tier 15 maps.
I should be able to hit 110 + quite easily. The only thing holding me back is the cost of rolling maps if you brick one.
I try and run increased pack size and bloodlines if at all possible.Dang... I was once up to around 20 red maps on standard. Now I'm back to zero... I don't know how you guys do it!
The recent DirectX improvements are now making sense. I guess this will probably be a good thing for the game overall. I dont think there's much option on consoles for ARPGs. I can't think of anything besides Diablo.PoE coming to console ( Xbox One ) and been in development past couple years.
There is a timetable for it. Currently Legacy leagues start March 3rd. Beta for 3.0 starts in April. 3.0 Released in June or July. Not super specific, but it gives us something to go off of!From this article 3.0 looks like it will reinvigorate the game:
Note: double dipping will be eliminated which will kill a lot of mega builds. No timetable is announced but it looks to me like the rollout is a ways off-there will be a legacy league in-between.
