Diablo 4 Team Acknowledges Unpopular Patch, Commits to Better Communication
In a candid fireside chat, senior developers from Blizzard’s Diablo 4 team addressed the negative reception surrounding the game’s latest update, the Season of the Malignant. In response to overwhelming fan disappointment and backlash over the patch’s across-the-board nerfs, the developers took an apologetic stance, admitting that the changes were not well-received and that they “don’t plan on doing a patch like this ever again.”
The update, which included nerfs to various classes, including the sorcerer, aimed to prevent players from “blasting through content.” However, the community’s outcry was more extensive, expressing frustration with the changes that adversely impacted gameplay enjoyment.
During the Campfire Chat, the developers openly acknowledged the feedback and expressed regret that the latest patch had taken away from the fun factor of the game. They offered insights into the objectives behind the changes and the reasoning behind their decisions.
