Diablo II Realm Rollback
11:51 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

Last night Diablo II's US-East Realm on battle.net began to experience stability problems, finally resulting in some players losing characters and items. Blizzard has since found the problem and released this statement which should please those people affected. If you have logged in recently or regularly, the following should be no surprise, but we've posted this so that anyone deciding to log in later tonight knows what to expect:

The Battle.net Team has successfully identified and repaired the problem affecting the U.S. East realm. Many characters played after 8:00 P.M. PDT (UTC -8) lost some or all items. This was caused by a bug in the Diablo II server software.

The Battle.net team is in the process of rolling back all characters
affected by this issue to before 8:00 P.M. PDT (UTC -8). All missing
items will be restored.

NOTE: Any U.S. East Realm character changes made after 8:00 P.M. PDT
(UTC -8) Tuesday, July 24th until 11:30 P.M. PDT (UTC -8) will be

The rollback process is expected to take several hours. As a result,
the U.S. East realm will stay offline until later today. Please
check back for further updates.

Good to see that Blizzard was able to isolate this problem quickly and revert all characters to their previous states. For further information check the battle.net status pages.
