Long maint doesn't confirm anything. They do long maint all the time.

Unless they announce it, like what Narull said, they do long maintenance occasionally without any updates.

"About time" doesn't mean its going to happen, lol

The first version of 1.0.8 PTR was pretty good yet incomplete (and Realm of shadow was really a bit imba).

The last version of 1.0.8 PTR is a total mess, with "too good" areas nerfed to the ground into "useless areas" and stupid "clumps" everywhere.

Actually its how blizzard uses PTR :

They release a pre-version, they ask for feedback, they ignore feedbacks, they make it worse.

This patch is lame. Act 3 is still the best act to farm and reward less xp/drops than 1.0.7 Act3.

WHAT A GREAT PATCH.

it's obviously the new patch

Normal maint always starts at 5:00AM PST, not 3:00AM

so basicly blizz nerfed act 3 xp nothing else yes ?


You will gain less xp/loots in act 3 due to scorpions nerf.
You will gain more xp/loots in act1 and 2 but still less than in act3.

All in all :
Small nerf for pure xp/loot farm.
Small Xp/loot upgrade during key farming.

This patch is kinda disapointing

This is really disappointing. I don't follow the PTRs much but looking at the Patch Notes this pretty much seems what it is. I just can't wrap my brain around Blizzard's thinking here. At release they were nerfing good farming spots left and right. Everytime someone finds the "best" way to do something they seem to nerf it.

Newsflash: Diablo 2 had "best" farming spots too. The all RNG thing makes it so hard to enjoy this game at all. There's a reason why some slot machines (like Wheel of Fortune) are more fun than others. There's a reason why D2 seemed more fun than D3. I'd love a ladder for starts, but even with a ladder what do you farm? More gold to buy items again like release?

Especially considering there was no maintenance on last Tuesday.
I stand by my May 7th release date.
