The Patch 2.6.8 Preview Post should be coming out relatively soon. We’ve gathered all the feedback from the PTR as of last week and are finalizing patch notes, localization, and coordinating with regions in regards to a launch date.
Should hear something soon!
Armory Profiles have been re-enabled worldwide and should once again be available for use! Our reduction in leaderboard categories on the website should hopefully prevent the need to disable these again in the future. We’ll be keeping a close eye on website performance as always, and thank you for your patience and understanding.
I only wish my typing speed = my writing speed cknopp, what’s your secret? Authors everywhere would love to know
Man, I wish it worked this way. My average is in the range of 115-125 WPM. I COULD GET SO MUCH DONE.
It’s true I haven’t posted much since the second round of PTR. Honestly, I haven’t had time. My focus is on making sure all your feedback is getting into the right hands to evaluate and risk-assess any additional tuning passes and bug fixes. Time I take posting is time I take away reading/parsing more feedback. Getting any more changes into the game in a timely manner is important so we can hit submission and validation dates - all of that takes time, and the amount of time necessary varies between all the console platforms we support in addition to PC.
There’s a lot more I do behind the scenes, but to be honest, it’s most important that I’m actually doing those things rather than posting about them. The two week PTR process has been fantastic for working out some of the larger issues, so it’s likely we’ll continue this process for future PTRs. We’ll have updated patch notes detailing any final changes for the Season in the S20 preview blog, which should be out before the patch launches.
I’ve said this before, but reiterating in case it’s been missed: We’re also planning, long-term, to do additional balance passes after we’ve finished adding all the new class sets to the game. We want to continue to make changes and tweaks for the foreseeable future based on both your feedback as well as on ongoing class performance.
We’ve been chatting about it, but I wanted to have a finalized answer before I responded to any posts.
Given the balance changes we’re introducing to Patch 2.6.8, we agree an Era rollover will be needed. So, we will be resetting the Era with the launch of the patch.
This came out beautiful. Great work. I'm sure your boyfriend will love it!
It’s time for this thread to go to the elephant graveyard and die already.
Agreed. This has gone way far off topic and is well beyond constructive.
There are other less deconstructive threads on the same topic. You’re welcome to continue this discussion in an appropriate thread.
March 1st is a SUNDAY, not a friday.
I have no had enough coffee today.
While you are adding items to loot tables, can you also add the Bovine Bardiche for Witch Doctors, Wizards, Necros and DHs please?
Why would you want that? Not like it leads anywhere…
(Feedback noted and passed on.)
Is there anyway you can get the Furnace to be added to the DH cube?
Bigger request than you might think. It’s not a change to the cube, it’s a change to the class.
It’s been passed along as feedback. It’s just also not an easy change like adding In-Geom properly to the loot table was.
There is any intention to change the s20 theme? compare to the last one this look so poor, and like many people say, it doesn’t provide a strong buff to any build.
No, there is not.
Not every Season is going to give a huge amount of power. Not every Season will be as compelling to every player. There is a reasonably large echo chamber here between a handful of players that aren’t interested in this Season. And there is a fair amount of feedback from many other players across a variety of community spaces that are really excited about it. Like some of the past buffs, I suspect this one will be more popular with certain classes over others.
It’s okay if it’s not the Season for you. We’re planning to continue doing different things with each Season for the foreseeable future. If there’s something particular you’d like to see for a future Season, we’re always looking for new ideas; I can’t guarantee we’ll be able to fulfill exact community suggestions (there are limitations to what a Season buff can entail), but the additional inspirations are always welcome and definitely one of the forms of feedback I’m perennially tracking for future patches.
3rd of March is Tusday and season ends at 1st of March
