The rest after this ad
Action RPG fans returned to Diablo IV with the recent release of Season 3, which brought new content like a new dungeon, a companion, experience boosts and much more. According to Blizzard’s promises, all this was to be supplemented by the long-awaited arrival of the ranking tables, but a new change of plan postpones this development until further notice…
The Gauntlet and the rankings on Diablo IV… It’s not for now after all!
As initially pointed out Mein-MMODiablo IV general manager Rod Fergusson communicated this bitter news via his personal X account:
“It’s great to see the excitement around the Gauntlet and the leaderboards. We’re still on track for Season 3, but we’ve decided to take a little more time to polish some elements, which will therefore not be launched on February 13 as I mentioned in a recent podcast. We will give you more details and communicate the new date soon.”
The community dissatisfied with this delay
As you can imagine, the community is not very happy with Fergusson’s announcement. Besides the many negative comments on the original article, content creators like Rob2628Diablo expert, lamented Blizzard’s decision for several reasons: “I was already disappointed to see that this feature was delayed and that it was not planned for the release of Season 3. This killed the hype media because it was presented at Blizzcon as the BIG new feature of Season 3. I felt like it was delayed on purpose after the recent campfire discussion so players could gear up and lean on levees. Now we know he’s not ready.”
Players are quickly running out of things to do in Diablo IV due to the lack of an interesting endgame. However, some people are in favor of this delay. The user synthbangers explains on his X account: “It’s not really a big deal because 99.9% of us don’t reach level 100 within 16 hours of the start of the season. plays a lot, so a few more days aren’t too bad in the overall strategy.” For his part, the screenwriter Dan Wenerowicz believes that “many of this season’s players are not ready for the Gauntlet.”
