Battle.net Server Status and Barbarian Bugs
9:37 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Blizzard's multiplayer service Battle.net has recently posted some updates regarding both server status and a bug causing problems for Level 1 Barbarians. These updates follow the recently available Diablo II 1.09 patch, though it is not specified whether or not this new patch is the source of the problems.
Here's their official statement regarding server status:
Asia1 and USWest realms are still down while we investigate what is causing characters to revert to level 1 status, losing all items, experience, skills, and stat points. (Note that this is unrelated to the issue where Barbarians that were always Level 1 fail to load correctly). The Barbarian Bug, as noted above, is causing Level 1 Barbarians to fail to load. Battle.net promises to have a server-side update as soon as possible. For players worried about their characters, Battle.net promises that any characteres that failed to load wil not need to be rolled back, as the character data is still intact.
We will update again tomorrow when we have more information regarding Asia1 and USWest.
