2/12/2013 Patch 1.0.7 goes live
3/12/2013 Patch 1.0.7a (looks more like a hotfix in the form of a patch)
4/8/2013 Patch 1.0.8 PTR up
?/??/???? Patch 1.0.8 goes live
I can understand the time between patches such as 1.0.7 and 1.0.8, but when you stack on top of that the time that it sits on the PTR, it adds up to be too long of a break.
One thing I have noticed with this particular PTR is the notes had the main meat in it (density changes, coop, crafting convenience etc...). The notes nearly doubled in size over the course of 1 week with class changes and other adjustments.
Do the PTRs really need to be up that long? I understand that it takes time to discover new bugs...etc, but wouldn't 2 weeks of PTR time be sufficient?
The main reason I bring this up is I have been playing this game since release and I am starved for more content/changes. I am to the point where paragon 100 isn't required as I have a few pieces of decent mf gear that if I wanted to get max mf, it would be easy. I don't see anywhere else to progress. I have even resorted to occasionally flipping a few items on the AH and have found it an utter waste of time to play the game to progress gold wise.
I know that I sound a little selfish, but I need more if I am to stay interested in playing.
