BIG gameplay problems with yellow wells (bonus exp wells)

  • After the splitfarm stupidity now the new trend of some ego-antiteam-players is to rush the maps like mad, ignoring all enemys just to touch the yellow wells IGNORING the rest of the team!

    Even if the team stay together the range to get the effect is by far to small! It's anough to be half a screen away to not get the bonus ... which sucks!

    Please Blizzard increase the range :(. Maybe even as much as shrine buffs. So it's enough to be at the same map to get the bonus.

    My personal favor would be to BAN all this egos from multiplayer games (they don't want to play as a TEAM anyway). But I doupt this would be posible :(.

    We've been noticing the same thing whenever we play in the office, and we’re looking to increase the range that party members receive the Pool of Reflection bonus (currently, we’re thinking that we’ll have them mirror the same radius that shrines use). We're also planning to update the mini-map icon so that you can tell when a Pool of Reflection well is depleted. We don't have a time frame for this change at the moment and the exact details are still subject to iteration, but we'll be sure to keep the community updated.

    Wyatt Cheng just actually spoke about this topic over on Twitch. His playtest with Moldran, Archon the Wizard, and Jaetch is still in progress if you want to tune in:
