There should be a separate leaderboard for each class, since its quite likely that Blizzard will fail at class balancing.

edit:
Specifically, I'm looking at the conquests. Which sound like they are limited to top 1000 players (any class)

Greater Rift leaderboards will indeed be separated by class for solo play.

Greater Rift leaderboards will be split between both Hardcore and Normal gameplay modes as well as Seasonal and Non-Seasonal characters. To help encourage a variety of play styles and allow you to measure yourself against similar competitors, we've also broken up Greater Rift leaderboards into the following categories:
  • Solo play for each class (e.g. top players for Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Crusader, etc.)
  • 2-Player Groups
  • 3-Player Groups
  • 4-Player Groups


Season-Only Leaderboards will not, since the relevant data will be tracked at the account level rather than at the character level.

Some Leaderboards will be Season-only. For example, Conquests are only tracked on Seasonal characters, so these Leaderboards won't have a non-Season equivalent. The same will be true for Seasonal achievement points. In addition, because Conquests and achievements are account-wide, their associated Leaderboards will not be split between Normal and Hardcore (even though some tasks may require playing a particular mode).

Note that this is currently how Leaderboards function in 2.1.0, but that the functionality is subject to change before patch ships. :)

Limiting rewards to 1000 players of any class is a terrible idea. Whatever class is strongest will have a huge advantage. And, unlike the current game (where balance doesn't really matter), it WILL affect other people negatively.


That's definitely feedback we can take into consideration and, of course, will be mindful of (if not actively looking for) during the public testing phase.

Can't you figure out a way to reward hardcore conquests vs normal separately?


As noted in the preview, some Conquests will require your character to be in Hardcore mode to achieve. In fact, we intend to have the number of Conquests per Season split evenly between both Hardcore and Normal game modes.

The goal with Conquests in general is to encourage different styles of play, or at least target those different styles to some degree. That's under our current philosophy, at least; Conquests are still development and may see some iteration during the PTR. :)

Funny thing is, Lylirra thinks the question was answered.


The original question was answered. Or, more accurately, the original concern was addressed.

The OP then edited his post and posted a follow-up concern. I followed-up after the edit and the post to address the new concern.

I hope that helps clears things up a bit. :)

So there is no Paragon-leaderboards ?


Nope, not currently. There are no Leaderboards planned at this time that would track Paragon levels (or even total experience gained) within a Season. It was a conscious choice on our end to shift Leaderboards for Seasonal characters away from a pure level grind towards more objective-based (or even skill-based) goals like Greater Rifts, Seasonal achievement points, and Conquests.

Standard caveat: This is all according to current design. Details and functionality subject to change pending testing and feedback.
