Diablo 4 Season 2 promo video pulled after being mocked for obvious errors

October 17, 2023 by No Comments


But they messed it up by labeling the change in Season 2 as “before” and the older version of Season 1 as “after the.” Later, in the upcoming Diablo Blood Season 4 players will gain more experience because Blizzard made them a multiplier of base, elixir, and seasonal bonuses. However, Blizzard’s video editing team seems to lack basic arithmetic knowledge as they ended up messing it up.

As you can see in the video, they first doubled 1000 XP with a 40% bonus under “before” the listed answer for them is 1,040 XP when it should clearly be 1,400 XP. But it doesn’t end there, in the “after” section, they doubled the base XP of 1000 with 1.2x Elixir and a seasonal bonus, and the answer they came up with in the video is, again, embarrassingly wrong.

Furthermore, Diablo 4 Season 2 will likely come with upgraded mounted speed. They included an illustration comparing the assembly speed of Season 1 and Season 2. But, as was the case with the rest of the video, it failed to demonstrate it because you couldn’t tell the difference between the two.

The reaction to the video was very interesting as the community mocked Diablo 4’s half-hearted effort and the team Blizzard put into the video. So it was no surprise that the newly acquired Microsoft studio ended up removing the video. Many questioned how the video even made it past the initial editorial review let alone being posted on Blizzard’s social platforms.

But despite the spoiled promo for Season of Blood, fans of Diablo 4 are excited for Season 2. The first season of the title was a big disappointment for fans as they had high expectations after the game’s successful launch, though it didn’t lead to the RPG’s growth rating as it garnered more than 12 million players as of August.

In the patch notes released for Season of Blood, the studio reached out to fans diligently and reassured them. The Diablo community was pretty happy with all the fixes and features detailed in the comments. However, the final verdict of the fans will be known only after the release of Blood Season which will be released on October 17.

Diablo 4 was released on June 5 and is available to play on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
