yooooooo I might be in the minority but I really wish they never did this to Tyrael's character in Diablo 3.

In Diablo 2 Tyrael was pretty much the most badass angel I've ever seen in any form of media - courageous, mysterious, powerful, and humble.

Diablo 3 somehow managed to strip away almost all of his amazing qualities, and left us with this over-narrative annoyance. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd say "you talk too much" at Tyrael.

I'm hoping in D4, maybe early on, we rescue or encounter some lore character, and they advise us as rarely as Tyrael did in Diablo 2.

I know what you mean. I kind of feel the same, yet I didn't really mind. We rarely see an awesome superhuman character turn himself into a simple human. I had no problem with that and thought this was really cool.

But this certainly left a gap which you mentioned. The other Archangels didn't really interact much with the player.

Wow I hadn't watched this in a while. It's even dumber than I remember (not the cinematic itself, that part is awesome, but the story). I mean did the D3 writers (aka 4 chimps with 3 typewriters) just forget wtf world they were setting their idiotic story in? Angels existed before Sanctuary and have nothing to do with it in their creation etc, it's just a "side-world" created by an angel and a demon. So how in the hell can tyrael "fall" to Sanctuary when he strips his wings, let alone become human aka nephalem?! It's so stupid, has nothing to do with the lore of the series and is just baffling to behold - I mean seriously who the hell wrote this game?! If they're anywhere near D4 that story is doomed as well.

Tyrael doesn't become a simple mortal,he is still an angel,albeit one who now has mortality on his back (a mortal angel).Over the course of the centuries,after Hell and Heaven found out about Sanctuary,it was easier for both demons and angels to meddle in mortal afairs,even get to Sanctuary(even if it is considered basicly a pocket world separate from Hell and Heaven),it can stand to reason that Tyrael "chose" to "fall" there.

Leaving these aside,the story itself was not so pleasing to be honest. We as the mighty nephalem,discover our latent powers,stop the rushed invasion of Belial and Azmodan then find out Diablo is "scheming" behind our back (I mean let's get real,Adria basicly screamed traitorous *filtered* with traitor filling from the start of her journals,yet we didn't to a damned thing about it).Leah who had potential to be developed as a new generation horadrim (still hoping somehow Metzen didn't dupe us and she comes back somehow,he hinted her spirit is "floating around somewhere") was quickly disposed of. But in my humble opinion it did feel a tad mingled up somehow,rushed,the lore of Diablo is just massive,they have the tools necessary and I do hope D4 is going to "wall" us with an "explosive" narration 😂

The D3 story had some issues. But I dont think this was one. What would Tyrael become if he left the Angels? Is there any transformation rule or did he decide it for himself? I think he purposely transformed himself into a human with his angelic power because he said he wanted to warn the humans and side with them.

The problem I had with the D3 story is the soulstones. Suddenly Adria says that she captured the souls in the black soulstone. That makes the other soulstones and their destruction pointless. We dont even clearly know if Baal and Mephisto have been instantly popped into the black soulstone or were first captured in their own ones until the player destroyed them.

I completely agree with you. Diablo III pretty much ruined all the old characters. Killing Deckard. Turning Tyrael into a boring character. Making Adria the behind-the-curtain villain all along. Terrible writing.

      We got the closing date for the PTR and it's tomorrow! We should also find out more about the actual season details, release date etc when the PTR goes down.
      PTR (source)
      PTR 2.6.10 is up and tentatively scheduled to be down by 10/20. Once it goes down we’ll share updates on our blog (title), general discussion and close down the PTR section.

      It seems Season 22 is a little farther off than expected, as the PTR has been extended for an unspecified amount of time! There are more server-side issues than Blizzard expected, and they're now asking for additional help with testing:

      Hi all -
      We wanted to provide a quick update regarding PTR for 2.6.10.
      As some have experienced, we are seeing reports of some latency and login issues with the current update with PTR. Due to these items, we are planning on extending PTR for an unspecificed amount of time while we continue to troubleshoot the issues behind the scenes.
      During this time, we are asking for help! We would love for people to jump in and play the game as you would on PTR.
      As you are doing this, we will be doing some things that will be changing up the game as we troubleshoot some items on the backend.
      Starting later today, we will be turning off the Shadow Clones seasonal theme. This feature will be turned back on sometime tomorrow. Starting tomorrow (and after we turn back on Shadow Clones), we will be turning off the fourth slot in Kanai’s Cube. This feature will be turned back after a short period of testing with this disabled. There may be some additional testing that will occur after these two phases, but we will update the thread regarding any additional items or adjustments to these testing periods. Please continue to provide feedback or report any issues you encounter through the PTR as we will be paying close attention to these on our end.
      Thanks again for all the help during this PTR testing phase!

      We have some PTR hotfixes coming, mostly related to the Shadow Clones mechanic and a freeze issue, as well as the Diablo 3 site receiving some upgrades, mostly to the leaderboards.
      Diablo 3 (source 1, 2)
      10/8 Update: Hotfix Incoming
      We’ve read into player issues and want to share some of our findings and plans for an upcoming Hotfix:
      Shadow Clone Dying: The Shadow Clone should only die under the conditions of the player dying or when the 1-minute Shadow Clone spawn timer runs out. Unfortunately, the Shadow Clones dying outside of the designed circumstances and a fix is being worked on to correct this.
      Necromancer Shadow Clone Causing Crashes: Necromancer Shadow Clones are currently causing game crashes for players. We believe this is due to Build Variation 3, specifically with the skill Bone Spirit - Poltergeist.
      Game Freezes at Loading Screens: An issue we’re currently investigating is related to game freezes when loading into a game (error:395002). We’re currently investigating this and want to invite any additional insight on this if you encounter the issue.
      Timing: The team will continue to monitor the current progress of the PTR and we wanted to share that we are aiming to implement a Hotfix for this on 10/9. We understand that due to issue #2, you may be limited to testing the Necromancer. Thank you all for your patience and I’ll post back up when I get more updates.
      ...
      Web team has made some adjustments today.
      New URLs for Leaderboards
      US
      Diablo III Rankings
      Diablo III Rankings
          Asia

        You can also adjust regions on the leaderboard on the top left as noted earlier in this thread. They were still testing things out throughout the day.
      Likewise, they also brought back the region select to the profile page. Players will be able to self-select to view additional regional profiles outside of the one they are currently in.

      Phase 2 of the Diablo 3 Season 22 PTR is underway now, and it's on to the seasonal power! The Shadow Clones we get to play with are the main focus, as well as the massive 4th Kanai's Cube slot, so get on over to the test realm and test these crazy things out! You can also check out the full PTR patch notes here.

      Here's the modified skill list for the clones as well. 
      PTR Phase 2 (source)
      Seasons
      The shadows, they are moving, and they seem… animated. It is as though they have a will of their own. Whatever this trickery is, perhaps you can use it to your advantage. Let’s see what the demons say when you fight side by side with your own shadow!
      Shadows of the Past: Activating a Shrine/Pylon will spawn in a shadow clone of your class. This clone will randomly have 1 out of 3 predetermined builds. This clone's power will scale with your character and will last for 1 minute or if your character dies. See below for the shadow clone variations that can spawn when activating.
      Developer's Note: We appreciate and gathered feedback regarding the initial list of skills from the clones. We have decided to remove all hard crowd control effects from all kits and balanced each of the build variants to not have a potential buff that is more beneficial than the other 2 in the same class.
