Diablo II: Resurrected server crash causes heated debate

  • Diablo II: Resurrected introduced widespread and ongoing server issues. Today, a Blizzard community manager explained the nature of the problem, part of which is the behavior of modern players, and the other part is some code from 20 years ago.

    Resurrected's server problems seem to get worse in the past few weeks. Blizzard explained that because of the surge in traffic, there have been several Diablo 2 Resurrected Items outages in the past week and even global outages.

    It turns out that just rolling back the patch is not enough. The server crashed again on Sunday because of the surge in traffic. And it happened again on Monday. There is a post on the website explaining why this happened. However, it is worth noting that Blizzard uses some legacy code related to creating and joining the game and reading characters from the database as the reason for this situation. We did optimize this service in D2R Items a variety of ways to meet more modern technology, but as we mentioned before, many of our problems stem from game creation," the post said.

    At the end of the article, we explain Blizzard's handling of the problem, including several less than ideal fixes. In order to prevent players from creating too many games in rapid succession and logging into the queue, the rate is limited so that players will not overwhelm the server, but queue up like joining an MMO. Rate limiting is happening now and is seen as a "mitigation" rather than a long-term fix, and the queue will be "deployed on PCs in the next few days."

    Even so, Diablo II is still loved by the majority of players. If you want to get more Diablo 2 Resurrected Gold to improve your equipment attributes, you can MMOWTS, where there are a lot of discounted items waiting for you.
