Diablo 3 ladders “definitely” being looked into by Blizzard

Wednesday, 29th May 2013 19:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Blizzard has said it is “definitely looking into” a competitive ladder for Diablo 3, and should one be implemented, it would work the same way as in Diablo 2.

Speaking during a game stream, the firms’s Wyatt Cheng and Travis Day said the ladder – if added – would separate new and ranked characters from existing characters.

“We wouldn’t take away anything from what people have accomplished,” said Cheng. “People have a lot of investment in their current characters, so you’d still keep those.”

Day said ladders could also provide Diablo 3 players an incentive to continue playing even once development had ceased.

“Five years from now, you’re probably not going to see us making huge content patches, or class updates,” he said. “At some point we’ll set the game aside, sort of leave it as a work that we’ve completed, and move on to like Diablo 4, or whatever, right?

“Ladders are absolutely one of the things that helps the game stay fresh for people 5 years from now, or 3 years, or 2 years, or whatever.”

Thanks, PCgamesN.

    Diablo 3 for the PC was fun but didnt have the longevity Diablo 2 had.
    If you have a PC, try the free game “path of exile”, it’s a Diablo 2 clone (with modern graphics) and is better than Diablo 3 in some ways. I actually like it more.
