Because of server issues that have plagued Diablo 2: Resurrection since its release last month, Blizzard has revealed that the source of the issues has been identified as part of its ongoing effort to shed light on various technical aspects of the game's development. Blizzard has revealed that the source of the issues has been identified as part of its ongoing effort to shed light on various technical aspects of the game's development. This is part of Blizzard's ongoing effort to shed light on various technical aspects of the game's development, and D2R ladder items online has revealed that the source of the problems has been identified. In light of the discovery that there was no way to transfer character data from local to global databases, the developers were forced to choose between two options: either unlock everyone who had made unsaved changes in a global database or temporarily suspend the game for an extended period of time. The latter option was ultimately chosen by the developers. For a variety of reasons, the developers opted for the latter option over the former. Based on their recommendations, they came to the conclusion that the first alternative was the preferred option because it allowed people to continue playing the game without being interrupted or impeded.
The notes are a tad spartan, but they get the job done. The team has made general improvements to character deletion to “help users from accidentally deleting their characters”. The devs have also made oodles of improvements to stability and performance, like fixing crashes that could occur if you launched the game with no existing D2R items for sale setting file on PC, or used the legacy toggle after an extended play session. The update also introduces stability improvements in the effects system and on game shutdown, alongside other minor crash and stability fixes.
Looking at the game’s subreddit, it seems a few people are still reporting incidents of game crashes. One player’s game crashed during the Pandemonium Event after they spent one week grinding for nine keys to open the three portals. Diablo 2: Resurrected has seen its fair share of teething issues, if you’ve been out of the loop. Earlier this week, we reported that Blizzard was looking into various server outages.
