Blizzard will be introducing the long awaited PvP component into Diablo III with the Dueling features of upcoming patch 1.0.7. After receiving feedback from the community, the developers have decided to rename the new mode “Brawling” instead.
“While the system we designed was developed in order to give players a fun way to beat each other up in Diablo III, we’ve come to realize that dueling wasn’t the best name for it. Sure, it allows players to pummel, stomp, immolate, and hex fellow Nephalem, but it’s not a traditional one-on-one duel,” said Blizzard’s Community Manager on the D3 Forums.
“There’s a lot of power in a name, and we think that the idea of a brawl more accurately describes the system we created.”
These changes will be reflected when patch 1.0.7 is released outside of the PTR, and the developers say they’ll be making no other further changes for the mode at this time.
