Quote from Pietrak
Do you think that people will still care about non-ladder play?
I will. I had no interest in ladder in D2, and I have no interest in it in D3. Given that I have time to play, at most, two or three times a week, I have zero interest in re-rolling just because some arbitrary "season" came to an end.
For all the people out there that are excited for ladder, there are many more casual and semi-casual players who don't give one flying fuck about it.
