Another New Diablo 3 PTR Season Begins

They really do go faster as you get older...

They really do go faster as you get older…

Blizzard has reset the Seasons again on the PTR as they continue to test the switch over in order to make it all perfect before Patch 2.1 goes live. Here’s the blue post from just minutes ago:

Within the next hour, we will be closing PTR Season 3 and begin preparation to launch PTR Season 4. Below is estimated timeline for how (and when) this process will work.

  • 2:30 p.m. PDT: All PTR participants in the Seasonal games will receive an in-game message noting that PTR Season 3 will be coming to a close at approximately 3 p.m. PDT
  • 3:00 p.m. PDT: PTR Season 3 will end, all active Seasonal games will close, and the Season roll-over will begin. For more information about Season roll-overs, click here.
  • 3:30 p.m. PDT: In preparation for PTR Season 3, we will bring the PTR down for maintenance at approximately 3:30 p.m. PDT. We currently anticipate around 1 hour of downtime.
  • 4:30 p.m. PDT: PTR maintenance will conclude, and we will begin pre-season for PTR Season 4. For more information about pre-seasons, click here.
  • 5:00 p.m. PDT: PTR Season 4 will begin and all PTR participants will receive an in-game notification. At this time, Seasonal heroes and Seasonal games can be created. In addition, the Seasonal shared stash, Paragon experience, currency, artisans, achievements, leaderboards, and Personal Best records will all be reset.
  • Please note that all times listed above are subject to change. If there are any modifications to this schedule, we’ll be sure to update this post as soon as possible.

    Another new Diablo 3 PTR season begins, and it seems like they’re getting faster and faster each time. Perhaps the testing can reduce them to a single day, giving everyone a chance to win the DiabloWikiLeaderboards, if you’re just quick enough to get started one day?

    1. So one more small PTR season for the final adjustments before the patch goes live next week.

      Has to be since we're running out of "later this month".

      • I think the fact that they have the "big talk" about 2.1 coming right up the release is likely to immediately follow that.

      • Topic came up on the podcast and there was debate about whether seasons should launch with Patch 2.1. I think Blizzard will stagger them a bit; give people a week to experiment with all the new changes in Patch 2.1 before starting the season… but I can see arguments for going live with both at the same time.

        • Yea, I didn't really think about that possibility until you guys brought it up yesterday.

          It does make sense they'd like everyone to play around *cough* further test *cough* the general changes before dividing us in season and non-season.

          Still, I hope that's not true…

    2. Since Seasons have always been stated as a part of the 2.1 patch, I don't feel like there will be a delay. I'm pretty sure everything will go live and adjustments will be made from Season to Season as needed.
