With the beta now set to start this weekend, Blizzard is starting to talk a little more about what’s happening at launch. The first update concerns Diablo 2 Resurrected ladders when the game launches.
Community Manager Adam Fletcher has posted some news that will disappoint a lot of players. There may be no Seasons or Ladder ready to run on launch day (23 September).
While this may not be a big deal to many, dedicated fans were raring to go with the ladder as soon as the game went live. This is understandable in that many will still have been playing the classic Diablo 2 and are eager to crack on with new ladder characters in the new game.
In other news, which I’m sure will please just about everybody. Runewords that were ladder-only are now being opened up to the single-player community according to Adam.
I think we can all get on board with that.
Thanks to Crudesash for the tip.
