Poll: How Long Do You Want Seasons to Be?Source
#0 - 2010/09/29 12:26:47 AMWe realize the six month reset caught some people by surprise and so we wanted to provide a way for you to give us feedback. We think six months is a decent amount of time to allow everyone time to level up and enjoy the season, while still keeping the ladder landscape fresh, but maybe you don't.
So... How long do you want ladder seasons to last?
Please keep in mind that a "winning" vote doesn't necessarily mean we will adopt or always be able to meet a specific time, but we certainly want to try to meet a general community desire when possible.
We realize there are many factors in the Battle.net play experience that may deflect votes to the "Other" option, such as the feeling that "Resets don't make a difference unless X happens." While we certainly appreciate this input, it isn't helpful in the case of gauging reset timelines for the benefits they do provide.
We'd appreciate it if you could let as many people know who play Diablo II to come here and vote, as it will be factored in to future reset timeline decisions.
(single selection, two week poll, results will be shown when voting ends)

Q u o t e:
I am happy with as long as a season as possible. Myself i play on ladder for one reason, and that is the content such as the Cube recipes/combos i can only do on ladder( Rune combos, runewords for example). I do not play with anyone else at all, all solo, but must play on ladder for all the content. I also do not like to feel obligated to play everyday for fear of the "season" running out and i have to restart, if i wish to keep all content open to me.
Just an opinion in a game i have enjoyed since it started.
For that specific opinion it may be best to pick "Other" and then state here that you would like those features added to non-ladder, since that seems a better solution for your specific playstyle.

Q u o t e:
I voted other as well.
I would like to see seasons last until there is a level 99 character of every class on every realm (not gateway, asia has 3 gateways and that's just asking way too much). This sometimes takes 6 months, this sometimes takes 2 years.
If I had to pick a different option, I would choose a year long ladder season.
Interesting. Thanks Bobbo!
