Since the patch the Maelstrom only spawns 3 enemies per player, and never increases past that. Tested in 3 Live Maelstroms, and a few Singleplayer ones. Was able to stay the entire time in the maelstrom without being overwhelmed. I really am not a fan of this.
The fact that the maelstrom kept getting more dangerous until it forced you to leave was its key enjoyment. Now, its easier than a vault.
Is this just me? Are others experiencing the same? Or did I just get unlucky?
Edit: It seems to be some areas spawn similar to before, and other areas are limited to only 3 per person.
Around Asylum of the Outsiders the spawns are only 3 per person. but in the Southeast it seems to be 3-5 per person. If anyone else experiences something similiar I’d love to know.
Edit 2: More tests, Northern Maelstrom seems to not work. The ambush spawns rarely happen, and only 3 attack you at once. If you go to the Southern of the Tower, the spawns seem to be working as before.
