Alas, “hellish” appears applicable in additional methods than one, as a result of gamers are nonetheless combating launch bugs. Whereas the builders issued quite a lot of fixes over the weekend, some gamers are nonetheless experiencing “lockout”, which means they can not play with sure characters as a result of the sport thinks they’re already in use.
First up, the excellent news: Saturday’s 9.24 patch has fastened quite a lot of crashes and development points. The devs have handled one crash that was attributable to “audio points”, and one other that was precipitated by utilizing a controller on PC.
They’ve additionally “fastened saves for offline characters that shared the identical names as their on-line characters”, as a result of giving your characters the identical names was complicated the sport and muddling up offline development.
Sadly, just a few pesky characters are nonetheless inflicting points. Character lock, or “lockout”, has been an ongoing downside for the reason that remaster launched. When attempting to get into Diablo 2, some gamers will get an error message telling them their character is already in a server, to allow them to’t use them.
On Sunday, the devs took Resurrected offline to implement a repair to character lock, however it does not appear to have labored. After the upkeep concluded, Blizzard support tweeted: “We’re conscious that some characters stay caught in closed video games.

There isn’t any replace on when this downside shall be resolved. That Twitter thread is stuffed with gamers saying they nonetheless cannot get into the sport, and the Blizzard forum thread has hundreds of posts from but extra pissed off of us.
A couple of are reporting characters going missing for the reason that upkeep too, nonetheless quite a lot of gamers have responded to those threads saying their characters have began to return again. It simply appears to be a ready sport for now.

After all, this is not the worst information to emerge from Blizzard lately. Dad or mum firm Activision Blizzard is constant to see fallout from their ongoing lawsuit about alleged sexual harassment and discrimination on the firm. The state company that sued them have since claimed ActiBliz suppressed evidence and shredded paperwork pertaining to the case, and the corporate are being investigated by the US government now too.
