Blizzard may have resolved the server issues for Diablo 2 Resurrected, but players are still facing a long wait to actually get in and play the game.
Diablo 2 Resurrected didn’t have the smoothest launch players have ever seen, to say the least. Fans blasted Blizzard for chronic server issues, and even after devs said the issue should be under control, there are now complaints about how long it actually takes to get into the game.
Even though the servers are technically back up and running, Diablo fans have reported having to wait 10 minutes or more to even log in, and then even more problems with actually making it into a game.
Diablo 2 Resurrected problems continue
On October 16 one Reddit user shared their own issues with logging in, calling the amount of time required to wait for a 20 year old game “ridiculous.”
“Srsly, WTF, do we really have to wait 10+ minutes to be able to log in into refreshed 20yo game?” jatz3k asked. “Is this the best Blizzard could get to? And even after you log in whenever you fail to join a game you won’t be able to join another for about a minute or so.”
Another player on Switch replied that those on Nintendo’s platform don’t even get the common courtesy of a queue, just a message to check their connection.
“I play on the switch, we don’t even get a queue. The game just tells me to check my internet,” one reply read, showing it’s more than just a PC issue.
However, Blizzard addressed this very issue in their October 14 update on the servers, saying they were implementing WoW-style queues to prevent server issues as things get back on track.
“This will keep the population at the safe level we have at the time, so we can monitor where the system is straining and address it before it brings the game down completely,” devs explained. “Each time we fix a strain, we’ll be able to increase the population caps.”
So the silver lining to all of this is while it might take a while to log in right now, it will hopefully improve as Blizzard brings the servers up to speed.
