According to Blizzard, Diablo Immortal warbands are changing with the next patch of role-playing gam ...

Changes to Diablo Immortal warbands are on the way, according to Blizzard's senior designer in an update on the multiplayer group system. Diablo Immortal warbands have been a source of controversy among the playerbase. Many players have called for the system to be made more modular.

In a post on the games subreddit, Diablo Immortal's lead designer Wyatt Cheng addresses player feedback: the requirement to utilize them for certain gameplay aspects, the eight-player requirement, the value of warband rewards, and the gameplay experience provided by warband activities.

Cheng admits that if you aren't participating in warbands, it can be frustrating to find other games that require participation in order to continue. These include areas such as the Codex and the Heros Journey, both of which previously required warbands. This is still being investigated.

Cheng says that the next significant change will be to limit the amount of players required for a warband raid to four players rather than eight. This will certainly come as a welcome relief for many, as the previous requirement combined with the eight-player limit for a warband has resulted in many players constantly disbanding and reforming the groups. It can be difficult to ensure the same eight players are all online simultaneously.

Cheng admits that if we were only looking at the game that exists today, we would likely go this route, but that future updates would provide some unique gameplay experiences that cant be properly accommodated by clans, which warbands would be better positioned to exploit.

Cheng says the team is aiming to emphasize the smaller group activities in which the individual's contribution and personality is more intimate. It is intended to provide fans with a stable progression system that allows you to excel in a more close-knit environment.

Many players are still dissatisfied with the way warbands are structured, despite many wanting them to be eliminated due to the game's mobile nature, which often means that many players prefer to just join in for short sessions rather than coordinate planned group activities.

Season four of Diablo Immortal is now available on the multiplayer game. Diablo Immortal PvP restrictions will be placed on players who are punished for third-party transactions, according to our best Diablo Immortal builds and Diablo Immortal gems guide.
