Hey! I've got an update for you guys: we've identified the issue, but it may take a couple more days to fix it!
Thanks for your continued patience!
Just wanted to pop in to let you all know that we're looking into this. I advise not editing your builds at the moment if you can avoid it!
Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused!
I've checked the build page, and it appears to be working. Is it still not working for you? If so, could I have more details on what is happening?
Sorry for any inconvenience!
If you can link me to the thread, I'll look into it for you!
Please post any challenge rift guides on our weekly challenge rift post instead of as a new thread on the forums. Thanks!
I think that these theme ideas in your poll need to be a bit more extravagant! I would like to see future themes greatly change how you play during a season. Imagine a season that buffs a particular element, or causes all abilities to deal a specific elemental damage type in place of their usual... Or what if they had an entire season where you could put legendary gems in any gem slot?
I wish you guys luck for Season 14! Here's to your leaderboard progress and success!
I will be moving this thread to the EU Looking for Group forum. Thanks for your understanding <3
From here on out, please post these guides on our weekly Challenge Rift post. You can find week 47 here! Or you can also post it on the build page that correlates with whatever region your are posting your guide for.
While we respect your opinion and speculation regarding the future of Diablo, please refrain from personal attacks on fellow community members.
D4 don`t exist (other than in some bullshits click bait whores like Rhykker clips or similar emoteenager oriented verbal diarrhea like that, full of fried air and retarded speculations and empty of real content) and even if somehow it will be developed it will take min 3-4 years knowing Blizzard timelines. In the next 2-3 years i`m pretty convinced that we will have 2 (at least ) additional classes (prolly druid and amazon) and possibly an expansion.
Are the build pages working for you all now?
D4 dont even exist, its only bullcrap from scrubs like Rhykker and others trolls. All the next gen gaming platform/devices with diablo brand show the d3 logo. We will have 2+ new classes, various DLC and a 2nd expansion within 2022.
There is significant evidence that suggests they have been working on a new game for awhile now--including a job description that referenced experience with 3D-rendering technology that is not available in the D3 engine. Regardless if you agree with other community member's on these theories or not, please refrain from attacking or name-calling. Thanks!
Based on one of the early job postings for the new Diablo project they are hiring for, we know that they are working with a new game engine--since the job requirements mentioned experience with rendering technology not found in the D3 engine. They might be working on some type of additional DLC for D3, but the new project is an entirely new game.
It's common for developers to leave and pursue new creative interests when a studio switches its attention to a new game. We know Blizzard has been working on this new Diablo project for some time now, and Travis likely feels like this is a perfect opportunity to go do something new.
Hey guys! Nearly all of the official blogs state CET; however, that appears to be a mistake on Blizzards end (not accounting for daylight savings time). I've updated the timer to show CEST instead. Thanks for the heads up, and thanks for your patience while I got this fixed!
Just a heads up, you commented on the wrong post! Our countdown should be correct, seeing as it is counting down to 5:00pm CET
EDIT: As it turns out, the official blog posts all state CET when they should be showing CEST. I've updated the timer accordingly. Daylight Savings sucks.
We're certainly not getting any new content with this season, and it's safe to say that almost the entire Diablo team is working on their new project at this point. So, now we wait...
There have been countless jobs in the last two years that were posted and filled for a new Diablo project. On top of that, Brandy (the Diablo Community Manager) even alluded to the team working on "Whats next" for the Diablo franchise at a BlizzCon panel last year. We know something is in the works for Diablo--which definitely explains the lack of D3 content at the moment--but when or where we will hear about it is unknown.
Activision and Blizzard operate as two separate entities, and neither one of them make decisions for the other. Activision-Blizzard is a publishing company, and does not make games. For more information on how Activision-Blizzard works, there are plenty of resources available that explain it in detail.
While it sucks for people like us who play every season (and it would be nice to give us something new to read in the middle of a content drought), remember that they need to assume that there are people reading their blog whom it's their first time reading one of these, and they have no idea how the end of a season works.
For us, we already know what the end of a season looks like and really don't need a lengthy explanation--all we're looking for are the dates.
I'm well aware of the aggressive reaction people are having about the Activision games on the launcher, but unfortunately I'm not seeing many well formulated arguments as to why they shouldn't be there. Don't get me wrong, I agree--I'm worried the client is going to be littered with countless Activision games in the next few years--but I also understand the reasons they are going to be added.
Most Diablo players are not just fans of franchise, but also fans of Blizzard; therefore, Blizzard news is relevant to Diablo news. With that said, there are possible cross-promotional events now that the two games exist together on the launcher. If you ask me, I think it would be cool to have a CoD zombie pet in Diablo to pick up my gold.
Just to clarify some things about Game Development: Often times, a team will remain quite small during the first stages of development and then slowly ramp up staff as needed. For example: You don't need a team of environment/prop artists when you first start designing the game and there are no real levels to speak of yet--artists are often on the team, but more often than not are just concept artists. Even when levels are beginning to be designed, they start as grey-scale basic shapes to get a feel for how that environment plays before putting all the effort into making it look cool. Therefore just because they hired people 6-8 months ago, and even some more recently, doesn't mean that the game isn't far into development. It simply means they are hiring who they need at the moment.
There will be no announcements for Diablo. They just hired people less than 6-8 months ago. I personally wish Blizzard would sell the franchise. There are a lot of company's out there that could put forth the effort this franchise deserves. Blizzard Irvine takes 10 years to make a diablo game. Blizz North did it better and work smarter and faster with fewer. I mean hell Blizzard can't even keep people to stick around and continue to work for them.
I mean, I suppose if you only ever want to use the money on stuff from Blizzard... then sure, I guess.
