Diablo III is going to do more themed seasons and more short test sessions moving forward

Sure. That sounds right.

If you weren’t a fan of Diablo III going the themed season route with its last update, we’re sorry to inform you that you will probably continue not being a fan of further developments. A statement from the development team has confirmed that the Season 16 brought as many players back to the season as arrived with the Necromancer update, which means that it’d be downright silly not to continue along that particular line of development. Similarly, the shorter testing period on the test server contributed to better feedback with the patch notes available in advance.

In other words? Yes, all of this will be standard operating procedure moving forward, along with new item sets for the various classes and new powers and tweaks to same. The team also is planning to provide more transparency for players about what’s being worked on, so look forward to more understanding of how the game’s development is proceeding and presumably why.

I love grinding but after i played through with my youngest, well the eldest too as he already blasted through before us but returned to go through with us, the minute we beat the last boss which was so easy? we all were like a switch, off.

I guess the concept eluded us in that why repeat it over and over and over and over, sure ok better whatever but that’s not enough.

So who knows a dash of poe would be exactly what this needs.

If I were a betting man, I’d bet on them using D3 to live-test D4 concepts to see how players respond.

Despite my lack of interest in this, it’s a smart move if so. There’s no better feedback than live player data.

Also, is it just me or are they looking to PoE a bit? Because this sounds like them taking the concept of leagues with unique mechanics and flipping it on its head a bit by having them directly apply to players rather than the game world. I guess it’s working well for them so far based on this, but personally I find the PoE approach more interesting.

I think people logged in for more stash space and are confusing it for liking the direction they’re taking.

It very much does sound like PoE.
