Diablo II Patch 1.13 Delayed Again
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Originally announced earlier this year the new 1.13 patch for Blizzard Entertainment's action RPG Diablo II has once again been delayed. This time the release has been held up by worries about the impact of increased player stash sizes on the battle.net servers. Blizzard's Bashiok, in a recent forum posting, said the issue is being examined and more information will hopefully be made available next week.

The Diablo II 1.13 patch is on temporary hold while we investigate potential impact on the Battle.net service. As we moved closer to launching the patch concerns grew that an increase in the player stash size (a feature in the patch) could compromise the Diablo II Battle.net service. The hardware and configuration could potentially not handle the increased stash size gracefully under heavy load. Currently we’re investigating potential impact as it is one of the larger content features in the patch and we’re hoping it can remain a part of the release. If it does have to be removed it will require additional time to remove it, generate new patches, and test, which will add time before we can go live on the PTR.

We’re hoping to have our diagnostics and a final decision on how we’ll be moving forward decided by early next week and we’ll have an update for you at that time.
