Character wipe och serverproblem

blizzardNattens beta patch 6 har orsakat stora problem med uppdateringen av betaklienten. Blizzard kan för närvarande inte säga när spelet kommer online igen.

We’ve run into a fairly significant issue with the patch that was intended to update beta clients so they can connect to the now updated service. We’re currently unable to estimate when the patch will become available, but are expecting that the beta will not return to service this evening. We apologize for any inconvenience or interruption in your scheduled play and appreciate your understanding.

Bashiok bekräftar också att introduktionen av Achievements innebär en wipe av karaktärer, dvs att samtliga nuvarande karaktärer kommer att tas bort. Igen.

As the patch introduces achievements to the game, and we want to ensure that we’re able to obtain as much testing on them as possible, we will be wiping characters with the deployment of tonight’s patch.

We apologize for the late notice, we like to give notice at least a week before we wipe characters, but this decision wasn’t made until just a few moments ago due to finding specific testing gaps and issues we believe would occur if we do not wipe characters.

We appreciate your understanding, and thank you for your continued help in testing Diablo III.
