If I were I'd be somewhat less bitter.
So, now we have some info to go off of. However, I am still unclear about which new features will be "season only". Has the new info changed/influenced your decision?
I am thinking my decision is unchanged. Unless a new season only act is added or 75% of our clan play seasons and there is no one to party with, that will influence me. It will need to be major new content.
Unchanged except I may be interested in concentrating on a different class in Season 2. Still waiting to see the full slate of items and gear introduced with 2.1.2.
Changed. I went from "will not do seasons" > "will not do seasons and probably won't do non seasons either".
This could be the right answer...
Mixed feelings here. I've had some time away from the game recently due to hardware issues as well as family stuff. Well, OK-and football. But I'm starting to miss it, so I imagine I'll get back into D3 a bit and thus Season 2. However, I also expect I'll be trying out some other games, and if one of them catches my attention, I may not be so eager to get back to D3. The Blizzcon stuff did not excite me.
@Katniss - Do I smell a barb in your future??
@Steven Hazani -Yeah I think there will be others to follow that similar path. Just not me. Once I get some decent gear I will scale back my playing a bit. On that note, it is time for me to take a WoW break with the Xpac in 2 days.
@Young I think we are just a bit burnt out now. You have been grinding pretty hard this past couple of months and I think it takes it's toll eventually.
@spiffymcbang I think this influences both of us equally.
@Aahzmadius Yeah many distractions make it easy to take a break. Kinda to that point myself.
From what I understand there will be a 30 notice on the end of S1. With that in mind I think it is time to take a break while they figure things out for S2 and possibly play some PTR for S2. But for now, WoW is going to get my time at least for the next month. New content always peaks my interest. And the inevitable lvl 100 grind...
Will they do a PTR for S2? I would think they'll just go right into it.
Yep they will do a PTR. I can imagine everybody being slightly burned out, with the insane hourse I saw many of my friends put in It's pretty insane that people are paragon 500+ in seasons while I'm 446 in non-season I don't play much, but I do play strictly T6 or GR and quite efficient at that as well. One guy hit 800 in seasons, he must have been playing D3 16 hours a day...
The next patch doesn't bring many new features, just some polishing up and hopefully the new sets. Hopefully the glaring leaderboard exploits have been fixed and we can have a honest go next time.
I'm looking forward to the monk SWK set change, which will improve gameplay and hopefully buff monks a bit as well. Between now and the patch, I will finally spent some time on other chars, starting with my DH and afterwards my wizard or WD.
Yeah, Zappa, they made reference to a PTR several times over the course of the weekend, so while I don't think it will be a PTR to test Season 2 per se, we will get to test some of the items and changes to the Greater Rifts, for instance. My current prediction on the time table is:
- announce the end of Season 1 at the end of this week or beginning of next week
- Season 1 ends around mid-December
- PTR starts right before Christmas/the holiday season
- Patch 2.1.2 goes live in mid to late January with Season 2 starting at the end of that week, similar to Season 1's Friday evening start.
As for whether it'll be Barb, Dark, well, wouldn't that be a nice throwback to Vanilla for me? Hm... I never gave the Whirlwind build a true try. So. Maybe.
Guess you're wrong on that
They're pushing to launch the PTR yet this month from the sounds of it...
I kind of wondered if they would start PTR while the wind down on S1 was occurring. Almost too proficient to be Blizzard...
DH and Monks receive the biggest changes on the next patch, what a coincidence these are the 2 classes I'm playing. Excite
Well, I am thinking I have made a decision. I will not be playing S2. Nothing there enticing in the slightest.
@Grishok Yeah looking forward to trying out the new DH, monk stuff.
No new sets..sigh...
I think there's going to be better opportunities for teaming up non-season this time around than last season. I finally have a couple of T6 worthy toons so I'm a lot more inclined to party up now than I was before.
I could not agree more Zappa. I look forward to having all my goodies from S1 on regular now.
def going to play season 2 as a support WD again.
Season 2 For sure!
Monk all the way.. not because it is popular, but that is the only one I do not have done to 70.
For me, I got off to a good start in S1, but then family matters ruined it for me..
And when I came back, everyone was soo much further ahead in content.
So S2 is a good chance to start on even footing, all my friends will be back too, so I look forward to leveling up and rejoicing over the first legendary etc etc..
I just wish I had more character slots!! All my S1 and non-season characters are still alive... ooh woe is me
