With Patch 2.3 deep into testing on the PTR, we’re not too far from the end of Season Three and the start of Season Four. Blizzard told us this season would go this long; way back in April, before Season Four even began, Wyatt Cheng spoke thusly:
Season Three began on
May April 10th, and they haven’t given us that two week notice yet, so clearly it’s not ending on August 10th. And note that Wyatt didn’t say, “exactly four months,” and recently a CM confirmed that they were still on track to end S3 in August.
So basically we’re right on schedule. No worries, then? Of course not.
Memories being what they are online, you can’t hardly swing a dead cat these days without seeing someone ranting about how S3 is much too long, how S4 and Patch 2.3 have been “delayed,” etc. Clearly it hasn’t been delayed but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have been here sooner. So now we vote:
So what do you guys think? Will we ever see a Goldilocks season? Why does Bliz resist simply making Seasons 3 months, as everyone expected back when they announced them? And can there ever be a perfect length for a season, or are they always doomed to be either too long or too short, no matter how long or short they actually are?
