It’s only been a few days since Season Six ended, and with still a week and a half until Season Seven begins, what’s a Diablo player to do with their gaming urges? I understand that there are members of the community who do not play Diablo 3 Seasons … but I don’t personally know any of them, and thus I desire to know what makes them (you?) tick.
I wasn’t able to play any in Season Six until the last few weeks, and with a real life full time and part time job my gaming time is very limited… thus I was just really starting to enjoy the push when S6 ended. I manage to finish the Conqueror page in the Season Journey the last night of S6, punching that extra stash tab reward in the nick of time. Then I had a day off last weekend and had a real urge to play D3… but without a season going it felt pointless to bother.
How about you guys? It seems like most people still playing Reaper of Souls dive in each Season and then gradually drift away over the next months before regaining interest again when the next season starts. But that’s very anecdotal, and short of Blizzard releasing player stats, we can only generalize by what our friends do, or by what we can extrapolate from the Leaderboards.
What are you doing until Friday, August 5th at 5pm?
The fresh economy and the fun of building a new character and seeing them become powerful is what makes the seasonal experience fun for me. And while we joke about the power creep and ease of leveling, I had to admit that I’ve come to really appreciate how Haedrig’s Gift enables a speedy ascension to T6+ via that first guaranteed six-piece. So what’s the the joy of not playing seasonal? Just working on perfecting the same character over a long, long time frame?
