This was expected. The fact that the new legendaries are tied to the ladder system exclusively, implied that players opposed to the idea of playing seasons would be left in the dirt. By ensuring that the new items are "less desirable", these players can now contently continue to play normal mode.
The ladders are for people who enjoy a fresh start and (somehow) play competitively. I for one love the idea of starting over. I don't think the new legendaries should be the main incentive for people to play seasons, and Blizzard seems to agree on that point.

People started supporting bad behavior. It's part of this new gen apathy.Quote from ConundrumNSA
I remember a time in gaming where exploiters and cheaters hid in the shadows.
Now they are proud of what they do and THEY feel insulted and attack those who call them on their actions.
When I was young and they showed on TV, for example, a person crashing their bike into a tree and obviously getting injured, people said "OHHHH, did he get hurt".
Now...it's "LOL what a fking dumbass OMG FAIL".
This detached behavior translates to online gaming. When a major exploit comes along, people say "OMG FKING BLIZZ SUCKS". Instead of the more reasonable approach of calling out those who are purposely ripping the game.
As well; Back in my day, when you played a game vs someone else, they were sitting right there next to you. If they cheated, shit got real.

But no regrets here: we wouldn't have known how bad the AH was for the health of the game if we've never had it. Sometimes you gotta experience darkness to appreciate the light.
