As Blizzard grapples with the server demons, a new Diablo 2 Resurrected Patch 10.15 has dropped before the weekend.
As was hinted at yesterday, this patch now adds a login queue for busy periods. This is not a brilliant solution but it’s a solution at least for now. Hopefully, this won’t be required as the weeks roll on. Until these issues are fully resolved, I doubt we’ll be seeing any ladder action.
- We have implemented a Login Queue for high traffic periods. This queue will pop up after the title screen when opening up the game. The queue will only appear during high traffic windows.
- Players will be shown a number on where they are in queue.
- Players will have the option of exiting the queue and playing offline immediately if they wish by hitting “Escape” on the queue prompt.
- We should note that the higher your queue number appears, the slower the number will refresh in the prompt. The number is still refreshing in the background, so we do not recommend leaving queue as this will create further delays to you entering the game during these high traffic windows.
We expect a patch in the next week that will implement the same queue functionality to consoles.
This is follow-up to our post yesterday regarding how we plan on mitigating some of our login issues players have been experiencing during high traffic windows. You can read more of that post here 51.
