It seems that the warbands in Diablo Immortal are still a bone of contention between Blizzard and the players. In the latest mini-update, their operation was improved, although fans continue to stand firm on their position, claiming that they should not be in the game at all.
What has changed about warbands?
The changes to the warbands were part of the update from two days ago. It mainly concerned the start of Season 3, which has been running in the game since yesterday. Diablo Immortal players however, were interested in the change in warbands, which looks as follows:
"You can now see if members of your Warband are online and their current in-game activity within the Warband menu."
Blizzard also decided to share the developers' opinion on the fixes. It shows that they took into account the feedback that highlighted how difficult it is to gather active squad members.
What's more, this is to be one of many changes that will cover this aspect of the game. This, of course, fails to respond to player protests, who want warbands to leave Diablo Immortal for good.
Removal is the best solution
As you can guess, the reaction from the community has been instantaneous, with players leaving no stone unturned in their dissatisfaction of warbands. More posts appeared, the main message of which was that Blizzard should get rid of warbands.
For once and all: WE, PLAYERS, DON'T LIKE WARBANDS.
We don't want a repair in the system. We don't like it. We don't want a similar mechanism. We don't like it.
It's very nice if someone in power position inside the company like warbands, but we players hate the system. Totally.
Don't try to fix, just remove it and we all will be happy. Thanks," wrote user riroyo.
Make them part of clans and that's it
There was no shortage of similar reactions, although there were also some more forgiving players. Indeed, they suggested that Blizzard should leave warbands in DI. The catch is to incorporate them into clans, so players won't have to search for "randoms" only to discard them when they are no longer active.
Blizzard only hears what it wants to hear
What also rubs Diablo Immortal players the wrong way regarding warbands, is that they are needed to unlock certain bonuses or make progress in the Hero's Journey.. Some people simply prefer to play on their own, and for such players (and a number of others who hate this element) warbands are just a hindrance.
Nevertheless, it doesn't seem that Blizzard thought for even a moment that warbands might be pointless. Especially since we've received assurances regarding further improvements. Diablo Immortal players will therefore have to put their egos in their pockets and just move on.
