Hey all! You will see this with the PBE deploy scheduled for later today.
After some more discussion, we have decided to go with 3.5 instead. It achieves the same goal of removing the leading zero, while preserving our numbering system which will tell you that we are on the 5th release of Season 3.
That's it though. We're done!
3.05 has been renumbered to 3.5. Subsequent releases will also be renumbered (3.6, 3.7, etc).
We changed the version number at the start of season 3 to have the leading zero in the second position (3.01). Turns out that we are now running into lots of different systems in our code that have to deal with the leading 0, and they do not handle this well. This was starting to cause some major issues for upcoming tech and rather than fix all the different systems and potentially run into this issue over and over again, we'll just increment the version.
How does this affect me?
It does not!
But we wanted to let you know why it was changing, and it is a visible change so we thought players would be curious.
