How long should ladder seasons be? This ladder season has been pretty long. Too long if you ask me. I think ladder seasons should be much shorter. A year or more is way too long for someone who wants to play ladder to make their non-ladder characters sprits and such. It also completely ruins the economy to the point it's almost as bad as non-ladder. I'm also of the opinion that that first day of the reset where everyone is playing together through the quests, and everyone is only wearing what they've found is the greatest fun that can be had with D2.
