Thank you devs and staff for making yet another season. I completed season journey on US and EU and completed the Ethereal achievement. Although I did the above I did not enjoy it. It was tolerable thankfully, but not fun for me. If anyone is enjoying the season theme please continue to do so.
I only wanted 2 transmogs and the pet from season journey. What I did not enjoy is being forced to play the classes that I don’t want to play. This can be further generalized into not enjoying being forced to participate in activities that I don’t want to or like just get a valuable pay off. I’m sure someone thought it would be a great idea but in general don’t I would advise against designing systems like this. In D4 there is suppose to be rewards tied to PvP. Please don’t make those rewards critical to progression. I lost my taste for diablo PvP along time ago.
After getting the season journey and Ethereal achievement completed on both US and EU, I stopped playing all video games. No betas, no RPGs, no FPS, no RTS, no MOBAs, no crossword puzzles, no Sudoku, no chess, no checkers… not even witty banter. I barely touch the forums. I’ve avoided the news/newspapers as much as possible outside the weather and some financial news. Its like my body is rejecting all that I find fun. It is like having a poisoned spirit. I burned 2 vacation days and slept for the majority of those 48 hours. I have not felt like this in more than a decade and its definitely not healthy.
For the hungry troll types, no this is not a weepy, self pity experience. It more like being angry, cranky, moody, grumpy, and disinterested all the time.
