Om de stabiliteits problemen met de Diablo II servers te verhelpen is er vannacht geprobeerd een nieuwe code op de server los te laten.

De code die bij uitgebreide tests binnenshuis wel goed functioneerde bleek, eenmaal geinstalleerd op de server, toch niet goed te werken ("we experienced severe problems") waardoor ze gedwongen werden de oude code weer terug te zetten.

Last night, as you all know, we were planing on doing an update that would improve realm stability. During the course of the day, we had a team of people QA the code for several hours. Everything went well during our internal testing. So at around 10 or 11 o'clock PST we put the new code up on the realms. As soon as the new code went live, we experienced severe problems and were forced to revert back to the old code. We are sorry that this did not work out and are working around the clock to fix the problems. I just wanted to let everyone know that the problems of the weekend that we hoped we fixed and promised an update last night failed. We will continue to work non-stop until this is fixed. As soon as we fix the problems we had, we will put up another message announcing the update. Thank you for your patience. - The Diablo II Team
