Blizzard to Reset Diablo 2 Ladders
9:11 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Yesterday, Blizzard posted a note on their Battle.net web site
announcing that they will be resetting the Standard and Hardcore
Diablo 2 ladders on January 1st. These annual resets ensure that 'new blood' enters the ranks, but veteran are always annoyed by their occurrence. Here is the post in it's entirety:

On January 1, 2001 at 12:01 a.m. PT, the Diablo II Standard and Hardcore
Ladders will be reset signifying the start of the new season. All
characters created before January 1, 2001 will no longer appear on the
Ladder. If you wish to be on the Diablo II Ladder after this date you
will have to create a new character following the reset. The Diablo II
Ladder reset will not otherwise affect any existing characters and no
characters will be deleted. The Battle.net site will list the top 10 Ladder
players on each ladder for each Realm. The new Ladder season does not have
a final ending date however it is probable that the next Ladder reset will
occur when the Diablo II Expansion is released.
This will no doubt be upsetting to some players, as they have spent countless
hours building their online rank through conquering both Diablo and other characters. Resetting the
ladders gives newer players a shot at the top spot on the ladders, and also keeps things interesting for the 'regulars.' If you haven't considered going for "rank" in D2, why not take advantage of the opportunity?
