Era Leaderboards Archive with Season Three:
Nevalistis: So sorry for the confusion!
What’s that updated FAQ say?
A: Non-Seasonal Leaderboards are tied to what we call “Eras.” We currently anticipate the next wipe to coincide with the end of Season 3. Once the Era ends, the next Era will begin immediately, although this may not be the case for future Seasons.
As our previous article on this issue demonstrated by comparing the actual Leaderboard ranks, aside from solo Monks, the Seasonal leaderboards only enjoyed an advantage in the top 10 or 20 ranks, and Era vs. Season was basically even below the top #50 or so. And arguably, that was due entirely to most of the most active/grinding players being Seasonal, rather than a gear advantage powerful enough to outweigh the Paragon Points advantage enjoyed by non-seasonal players.
That said, it seemed janky to merge Season 3 chars into the ongoing Era 3 leaderboards, for just a few days until they ended with the launch of Patch 2.3, so this archiving seems a wiser decision.
