Diablo 4’s latest update, Season 3, has brought with it a wave of discontent among the game’s community. The introduction of the new Battle Pass, dubbed ‘Season of the Construct’, has left many players feeling underwhelmed by the perceived lackluster rewards it offers.
The heart of the dissatisfaction stems from the rewards included in the Season 3 Battle Pass. Players have voiced their concerns on various platforms, including Reddit, where a user named ‘kid-karma’ expressed that the Battle Pass is so unexciting that players could skip purchasing it without missing anything of value. This sentiment reflects a growing frustration among the Diablo 4 community, as players feel that the rewards do not justify the investment.
Another Redditor, ‘Petroarzed’, compared the current season’s rewards with previous ones, concluding that Season 3’s offerings are the dullest so far. The dissatisfaction doesn’t end there; players are also disappointed with the amount of Platinum that can be earned through the Battle Pass.
With only about 700 Platinum obtainable and the item priced at 1000 Platinum, it falls short of covering the cost for the next season’s pass – a stark contrast to systems in other games like Fortnite, where players can earn enough in-game currency to purchase the subsequent season’s Battle Pass.
The value proposition of the Battle Pass cosmetics has also been a point of contention. Players feel that the cosmetics provided are subpar compared to what is available in the in-game item shop, where desirable items are priced significantly higher, often over $20. This disparity has led to a perception that the Battle Pass offers poor value for money, especially when contrasted with other titles in the genre.
While the current season is in full swing, and it’s unlikely that the developers will make changes to the Battle Pass rewards at this juncture, the persistent feedback from players suggests a need for reassessment. The community’s clear and consistent message could prompt the developers to reconsider their approach to Battle Pass rewards in future seasons, aiming to offer a more satisfying and value-driven experience for players.
