PTR Season 3 Ending - August 18(1)Category: PTR FeedbackAugust-18-2014 2:05 PM PDT (7 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Greetings nephalem!

Within the next hour, we will be closing PTR Season 3 and begin preparation to launch PTR Season 4. Below is estimated timeline for how (and when) this process will work.

  • 2:30 p.m. PDT: All PTR participants in the Seasonal games will receive an in-game message noting that PTR Season 3 will be coming to a close at approximately 3 p.m. PDT
  • 3:00 p.m. PDT: PTR Season 3 will end, all active Seasonal games will close, and the Season roll-over will begin. For more information about Season roll-overs, click here.
  • 3:30 p.m. PDT: In preparation for PTR Season 3, we will bring the PTR down for maintenance at approximately 3:30 p.m. PDT. We currently anticipate around 1 hour of downtime.
  • 4:30 p.m. PDT: PTR maintenance will conclude, and we will begin pre-season for PTR Season 4. For more information about pre-seasons, click here.
  • 5:00 p.m. PDT: PTR Season 4 will begin and all PTR participants will receive an in-game notification. At this time, Seasonal heroes and Seasonal games can be created. In addition, the Seasonal shared stash, Paragon experience, currency, artisans, achievements, leaderboards, and Personal Best records will all be reset.

Please note that all times listed above are subject to change. If there are any modifications to this schedule, we’ll be sure to update this post as soon as possible.

PTR Season 3 Roll-Over:

After PTR Season 3 has ended, the Season roll-over will begin. During the roll-over, your Seasonal heroes, inventory, shared stash, and Paragon experience will be transferred to your non-Seasonal profile.

Normal heroes, inventory, shared stash, and Paragon experience will transfer to your Normal non-Seasonal profile. Similarly, Hardcore heroes, inventory, shared stash, and Paragon experience will transfer to your Hardcore non-Seasonal profile.

  • Heroes: At the end of a Season, your Seasonal heroes will become non-Seasonal heroes. They will appear in your normal roster. Any items, equipped or in the hero’s inventory, will roll-over with the hero itself.
  • Shared Stash: Items in your Seasonal heroes’ shared stash will be mailed to your Normal/Hardcore non-Seasonal profile. These items can be retrieved by entering a game on any non-Seasonal hero and clicking on the mail icon located in the lower left of your screen.
  • Currency: Gold will be automatically transferred from your Seasonal profile to your non-Seasonal profile. Ditto for Blood Shards.
  • Paragon Experience: Paragon experience earned during a Season will transfer over directly without any additional involvement required from players. All Paragon experience will transfer, with experience gained by Normal Seasonal heroes going to the account’s Normal non-Seasonal profile, and experience gained by Hardcore Seasonal characters going to the account’s Hardcore non-Seasonal profile. (Note: Non-Paragon experience will not transfer.)
  • Artisans and Crafting Plans: If your Seasonal Artisans are a higher level than your non-Seasonal Artisans, their level will transfer at the end of the season to your non-Seasonal profile. Any recipes you have on your Seasonal Artisans that are not available to your non-Seasonal Artisans will be transferred as well.

If you experience any issues with the roll-over, please let us know in this thread, and provide as many details as possible. The more information we have, the better we’ll be able to identify and address the core problem.

PTR Season 4 Pre-Season:

Once maintenance ends and the PTR is brought back online, PTR Season 3 will be in what’s called "pre-season." During this pre-season phase:

  • Heroes: You will not be able to create Seasonal heroes or play Seasonal games.
  • Achievements: All PTR Season 3 achievements will be wiped. However, you will still be able to view your Seasonal achievement point total and completed Conquests in your hero Profile.
  • Leaderboards: All Leaderboard and Personal Best records from PTR Season 3 will still be viewable in both the Profile and Leaderboard screens.
