Reason: Mixing the challenge aspect with the loot theme!
Blizzard fails to realise that - due to the ever easier mass Inferno - there is a second players group out there that just wanna be challenged!
Instead it is supposed to be:
- Regular game for the "looters"
- Option MPS for the "challengers" (no better loot, XP, nothing - just an option!)
Otherwise the looters will flood the option, will again cry out loud all the time and the whole point of the challenge will be ruined from the outset!
But, to coin a phrase, what happens in PTR stays in PTR. In other words, nothing that happens there will affect your live characters, their items, experience etc. It's completely separate, and when the test ends, your PTR characters are deleted.

Well overcoming challenges is a reward in itself but your point still stands, Once you've done it once it's not rewarding a second time unless phat lewt drops or the challenge is increased even more.
lmao saying that since Diablo III release, Challenge has become much easier and loot much worse, Blizz have been going backwards.

As the blue (Takralus) posted, 'what happens in PTR stays in PTR'... is it a concept too hard to grasp?
What is done in the test realm is not reflected in the live one, no money, no items, no XP, nothing comes back to the live server!

Yepp - and more crying because most people don't understand these fundamental mechanics...
With every patch the game is changed and basically we must start again with some things.
I dont see any reason for PTR, Blizz will do what they want, no matter what is majority of players saying or asking for..
.. but MAYBE its a good step how to improve the game faster (but i dont have time to play another beta server, sry), but sorry to say it Blizz, its too late i guess.
full version of Diablo 3 (working game without all-game changes patches) will be ready next year or MAYBE just before X-mas ;)
Blizz will do what they want, no matter what is majority of players saying or asking for..
The majority of the people want's low taxes and high social transfer payments. And of course they want to retire at age of 60 with at least 80 % of their last earnings...
Conclusion: Not everything, that the majority wants, will be possible or even good (in long terms - somebody has to pay for it), because the majority looks most time only to the short term benefits and forgot the drawbacks.
