Extended Season - Can we have double bounties on NS?

General Discussion
Since you've extended Season by 2 months, which is awesome for Seasonal players, and we're all excited to see what Season 17 will bring, for us who have either skipped this Season or don't play seasons at all, would you consider activating Double Bounty rewards for us like last season?

We understand RORG was limited to Season only. That's fair! And cool. We accepted that.
But Double Bounties were excellent last season, as the non season players got to enjoy it too.

Since we can't have RORG buff, could we perhaps have 2 months of double bounties instead?

Kind regards,
Non seasonal players!

How is it fair or cool? They abolished seasonal exclusives for 10 straight seasons because it was not fair and in response to popular player feedback.

P.S. The comment about popular player feedback is Blizzard's words not mine.

The RoRG buff should have been like prior themed seasons/season where only cosmetics were seasonal exclusive (portrait frames/pets/pennant) Of the "best" posts on the season 16 preview, two of the top threads make this point precisely. This is amazing because it would be like making a post on a Texas BBQ competition forum stating that their annual dinner should be catered by Chick-fil-A and having it ranked at the top. It is my opinion that it was a bad decision by Blizzard.
The RoRG buff being seasonal only is 'fair and cool' because its temporary; don't want something like that messing up permanent era leaderboards, right? And the season has been extended due to 'popular player feedback' so having the buff work in this in this way is clearly "fair" and what the playerbase wants, right?

OP: hell yeah, a permanent double bounty buff across all modes!
Find a time machine and go back to fall 2018.

Then you can do double bounties all day.

The season was extended because the patch was not ready. Don't spread misinformation and read BOTH of Nev's posts. The buff affects non-season because seasonal characters, legendary gems, augments, xp, etc... rollover.

And then they introduced stash space which was worse than that. With legendaries all you had to do was wait and then you'd get access to them. With stash space? You absolutely MUST play Seasons.

It does not affect non-season. Reason being is that the leaderboards have had years of gearing and maxing out stuff. The season is still too short to have any affect on the leaderboards. Just look at seasons compared to non-season the entire time. Seasons have never surpassed the non-season boards. The RoRG buff has been shown to only add about 2 GR on average.

Add another 2 months to seasons and you will see 6k plus players with a gg buff to boot. GR 150 is still the same NS or Season.

However you wait. When seasons end 90% of the builds created become garbage. There are already threads crying for the RRoG BUFF to be permanent but hey don't "true season only players" delete all there NS stuff when the era ends anyway? lol
Who is asking for seasons to be longer? That is what I want to know.
They are plenty long, as it is.
I think it's a fair request for non season players to get...

Guess not everyone agree's..
When will you guys learn that non season is just a garbage dump for seasonal items when season ends. Why would they do anything special for non season?
with how easy it is to ge going in seasons there is next to no reason to even play NS.
