Update on Era 8 Leaderboards

Hey everyone,

During the beta for Patch 2.6.0, we anticipated that various bugs would surface. Thanks to efforts from our players and our own QA team, supported by a long beta cycle, we were able to catch the vast majority of these.

Even so, we anticipated that some bugs would make it into the live game, so we prepared a few safety nets:
  • End the previous Era before the patch went live to preserve everyone’s hard work in that Era’s leaderboards
  • Delay the start of Season 11 to provide ample time to fix issues that pop up post-patch launch

With recent reports from players, we have since verified and prepared hotfixes for the remaining issues which would impact the upcoming Season 11 leaderboards. Unfortunately, some of these have affected the new Era leaderboards which began last Tuesday. As such, we will be wiping these leaderboards to provide a clean slate for everyone that is hopefully bug-free.

Additionally, we have been looking at underperforming items including Set items, and will adjust these accordingly. This includes a change to the Bones of Rathma six-piece set bonus based on player feedback. With this, players will only need to have four Skeletal Mages active to receive the full 2500% damage bonus. You can still summon up to ten mages at a time.

We care about the integrity of the Leaderboards and will continue to make changes as needed to ensure that the upcoming Season provides a fun and memorable experience for everyone. Thanks for your understanding, and we’ll see you in S11.

Update: July 7 7:10pm PT

We’ve unfortunately encountered some technical issues with today’s hotfix that will require us to delay the hotfix until Monday. Apologies for the delay on this – the team is hard at work on the fix.

We’ve been discussing all the feedback and are looking into various options to take further action after the hotfixes are live. In the meantime, we encourage you to avoid this exploit.

Additionally, by way of apology, we are looking into providing a Double XP buff at some point after the fix goes out. Although we generally don’t provide such buffs (in order to discourage people from only playing when a buff is active), we feel like the unusual circumstances in this case warrant an exception.

Thanks so much to the community for your heartfelt feedback on this issue. We’ll continue to keep an eye on the discussions here and elsewhere as we continue the era and approach Season 11, and we’ll provide an update as soon as possible next week.

What about the fact that people have gained large amounts of paragon and gems levels that are 130-145, any plans to addresses those integrity based issues.

Please reply

Thanks

The people that used the exploit will still keep the 140+ gems. This will make non season leaderboards not competitive ever again.

Without rollbacks on everyone who used the Frailty and Marked for Death exploit there will never be integrity on the non season leaderboards.

No ban wave Season 10. No repercussions for leveling gems using this terrible exploit. Wow, Blizzard, well done.

Blizzard you all are horrible. You all just screwed over the non-season players that did not exploit the game by not rolling back and/or banning.

Are you kidding me? NS players don't care about leaderboards until the very end when season is about to end.

Everyone has 140+ gems, which would be IMPOSSIBLE to obtain legitimately.

The exploiters won.

RIP Non Season, because I chose to NOT up my gems to 140+

Sheesh Blizzard.....

You need to do a DB query for Frailty / MFD on 2, 3, 4s and roll everyone back or NS is dead going forward.
lol koss
