Diablo 3 PTR: Bigger and Better Nephalem Rift Maps
The size and shape and monster density/composition of the Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts is one of the main areas of testing during the current PTR session. The big changes were noted in the first days of the PTR, with much higher density in Greater Rifts allowing most characters to instantly boost their highest Grift […]
New Treasure Goblins on the PTR

Jay Wilson R&R in Vegas

Posted 28 Jan 2013 by

Now that he’s freed from the crushing weight of the expectations of millions of Diablo 3 fans, Jay Wilson had time to head off to Vegas for some R&R, much of which he shared via his newly-uninhibited Twitter account. Jay hasn’t actually said, “Vegas bitches” but he’s clearly liberated, like like Atlas in search of the golden apples. Some tweets from his journey, plus photographic evidence of the debauchery, which apparently included vodka with cute girls in furry Russian hats.

Our cabbie is trying to convince us to move to Vegas. He’s making a good case of it! –Jay Wilson

Any tips for gambling in Vegas? Besides “make sure you win” lol –DavinciVII

I don’t believe I’ve ever said an unkind thing about Runic, and I very much enjoy their games. –Jay Wilson

This must be the Starcraft 2: Heart of the Storm wrap party that is being held in Las Vegas over this weekend.

No word yet on a new Game Director for Diablo 3 (the position remains open) and knowing Blizzard we won’t find out about the new project Jay’s heading up until about 2016, but v1.07 remains active on the PTR, D3 development continues, and life goes on.
