Things seem to be coming along swimmingly with Patch 2.2.0 development, as we’re already beginning to discuss the end of Season Two! Community Manager Nevalistis dropped into the forums to provide an outline of how the team plans to go out about ending the season, rolling out Patch 2.2.0, and then starting up Season Three. Her post also introduced us to the fact that, unlike what we experienced in Season One, we will be receiving a two week notice regarding the close of Season Two sometime in the future. Continue below for the full post:
We’ve been thrilled to see so many players actively participating in Season 2 as well ason the PTR for our upcoming 2.2.0 patch. Your feedback has been integral in the great strides we’ve made towards not only our next patch, but our next Season. As we previously mentioned during our most recent Tavern Talk, we want to ensure our patching schedule provides the best player experience possible while allowing us to provide updates in a timely fashion. To facilitate this, we’re moving towards the following model:
- End the current Season
- Launch our latest patch
- Begin the next Season
We received a lot of feedback during Season 1 that thirty days was too long a time frame for an end of season announcement. For Season 2, we’d like to instead provide a two week notice. At the time of that notice, we will also provide the exact times that Season 2 will end as well as the date and exact times that Season 3 will begin.
Please note that this post is not the two-week warning. While we don’t have that information to share with you today, we want those of you participating in the current Season to know what to expect moving forward so you might plan accordingly to meet your Seasonal goals.
In the meantime, we wish all Season 2 challengers the best of luck, whether it’s knocking out a Conquest, putting together your perfect set of gear, seeing how high you can get in Greater Rifts, or wherever your adventures may take you.
While this makes no promises for delivery of Patch 2.2.0 tomorrow or Season Two ending in two weeks from today, I think it’s safe to say that we’re definitely in for a much shorter Season Two compared to Season One. Stay tuned for further news regarding this upcoming transitional period.
