Tiered Rifts and Ladder Seasons coming to PTRPosted 8 May 2014 by
It’s been a couple of weeks since Blizzard spoke of the changes planned for patch 2.0.5 but this morning Game Director Josh Mosqueira stirred to confirm that the two stars of the show Tiered Rifts and Ladders are coming along and will be debuting on the PTR. No word on when the PTR is going to happen.
Teams been focused on 205.Tiered rifts and seasons are coming along nicely, expect a spike of activity when they hit PTR

Perhaps activity has been low on the servers and he feels he needs to reassure people that others will return when the PTR goes live, which is usually the case as people check out what’s new.
Will you go PTR or will you wait for Live? I may venture onto PTR this time as I’m more than a little intrigued by the extra challenge that Tiered Rifts will bring.
Update: As observant visitor, Bob, pointed out Patch 2.1, the next content patch, was said to introduce Tiered Rifts and Ladders and Patch 2.0.5 was to be a general patch dealing with such things as changes to loot in Bounties and Rifts and unsocketing changes. So does this mean rifts and ladders are coming early (patch 2.0.5) or that teams are working on 2.0.5 and by the way rifts and ladders are coming along too?
Update #2: Tweetcrafter Phrexis offers another theory in comments. We should view Josh’s two sentences separately. 1) Team is currently focused on 2.0.5. 2) Tiers Rifts and Ladders will come to the PTR (eventually.)
