With Diablo 2 Resurrected, Blizzard has revived the classic of yore for PC and consoles. By the way, what also needs an urgent revival is Battle.net - little to nothing is currently going on. Blizzard is keeping an eye on the issues and working to fix them. Still, you can't play. 

Press A to start – it sounds as simple as that from the Diablo 2 Resurrected for Xbox Series X|S splash screen. If you press the auspicious button, - exactly - nothing happens. Communication problems with Blizzard's in-house service "battle.net" continue weeks after the release of the action role-playing game. They are working on solutions, the customer service publishes almost tirelessly on Twitter. 

Diablo 2 Resurrected: Problems for Weeks

Again and again, Blizzard investigates reports of login problems, it says regularly on Twitter. The servers are apparently overwhelmed with the success that seems to have come as a surprise to the developers. Small and large failures have accompanied the gaming experience since the release on September 23rd. Diablo 2 Resurrected has been revived, but obviously not yet arrived in modern times. Most of the time it works offline, sometimes nothing works online. Blizzard even has it for that Explanations supplied: Among other things, the problems are due to the original Diablo 2 code, which was used as the basis - and it is old. As it turns out: too old. 

And the databases are also overloaded. This is due to player behavior, which is completely different today than it was then. Blizzard said it had expected the problems and made preparations, but not enough. Last week's update caused a particularly big problem that caused frustration in the community. It hasn't subsided yet, because things just aren't going smoothly with "battle.net". In any case, the anger on the part of the fans is great. Understandable, after all, the fear of rollbacks is great - in the worst case, what you have earned would then be gone. According to Murphy's law, you would find a valuable unique item at exactly the most problematic time, which the server would then "take away" from you. This causes a lot of stink on the net. 

So you have to be patient if you want to play Diablo 2 Resurrected online. Blizzard is working on solutions and you buy it from the developers. One learned from the disaster of Warcraft 3 Reforged in new editions: Queues should now fix it and relieve the server. The new update 10.15 implements the “feature”. Blizzard fans know queues anyway, in World of Warcraft the developers relieve the servers with a similar system. For PC players, the waiting service comes first, console players apparently have to queue in a real-life queue – it should be ready in the next week. The queues should only be displayed if the server load is too high. Offline players are not affected by the measure, they can simply close the queues and start.
