The game’s Season menu has an option called Season Journey, where players can check their progress (as such, some players will check it regularly).
Underneath this option is an option called Activate Premium, where players with a Premium Battle Pass can activate it, turning their standard Battle Pass into a Premium one.
Usually this wouldn’t be an issue because if players wish to purchase a Premium Battle Pass they’ll have to go through a typical storefront process to do so.
However, the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of Diablo 4 come with a Premium Battle Pass included, and some players may not wish to activate it in the game’s first season, instead saving it for a future season (they may not like the cosmetics included in Season 1’s Premium Battle Pass, for example).
The issue is that if players choose the Activate Premium option by mistake and they have a Premium Battle Pass in their inventory, the pass is instantly activated without a confirmation prompt giving players the chance to cancel.
Twitter user Rurikhan notes that when players go to the Season tab, the ‘Activate Premium’ option is highlighted by default, and have accused Blizzard of “straight up malicious design” for laying out the menu in this way.
When asked why this was an issue, Rurikhan replied: “Because I was saving my Battle Pass for a future season since I don’t have time to commit to this one.”
Diablo 4’s global community development director Adam Fletcher has since responded to Rurikhan’s tweet, stating that the team is looking into the issue.
“We have a temporary fix in the works that will at least ensure the cursor isn’t defaulted there and will instead be defaulted on Season Journey,” he tweeted.
The issue is another problem for Blizzard, which recently had to address fan backlash to its version 1.1.0 patch, which included a number of nerfs.
