Diablo III Season Five Postmortem

A look at the legacy of Season Five, and how it has shaped the game.

What will we think of when looking back at Season Five?

Another Season has come to pass in Sanctuary, and with it some pretty massive revelations. We saw a rise in certain playstyles, reactions from devs, changes in Team Diablo, No-Boss runs, Banwave after Banwave, and even new ways to play the game.
