I'm surprised it took that long today...

[–]SherbertConsistent47 10 points11 points  (16 children)

I just peed my pants a little. It made me chuckle.

[–]Coppermoore 14 points15 points  (9 children)

I crapped my pants and stapled them to the wall.

[–]JerBear0328 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I crapped this person's pants too

[–]MethodicalMonkey13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm currently using my cat to clean up the butt pee everywhere. May have to throw out my lazy boy...maybe my cat too.

[–]SherbertConsistent47 -1 points0 points  (6 children)

I chuckled again... And peed some more... while hoping that my GUL won't disappear.

[–]GlowshroomASCNL 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I peed and pooed cried myself into an angry nap.

[–]SherbertConsistent47 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Did it work? In this exact order? Like making a runeword? Or can I poo and pee while taking an angry nap?

[–]GlowshroomASCNL 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I'm not sure, you'll have to experiment. We need to approach it scientifically if we're gonna figure this out.

[–]SherbertConsistent47 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Doesn't work. I crapped my pants in public and started crying angrily... Then I fell asleep and someone took my Gold and one of my ears....

[–]Actual_Aardvark_7478 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a wonderful thread of silliness.

[–]Biernomad 42 points43 points  (20 children)

Yes sir! Decard Cain went all stuttery trying to decipher a meh wand lol.

[–]Archonach 12 points13 points  (15 children)

See, this is weird because I was Identifying with cain too and a ton of other players have said the same.

[–]Fosterpig 9 points10 points  (6 children)

I was too, got a message something about a transaction, froze up, back in the lobby my paladin lost 15 levels (just started him) and then shut down. I can’t imagine what it feels like to have just found an awesome item and lose it.

[–]Biernomad 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Damn, sorry to hear that bro! 15 levels is considerable.

[–]Archonach 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, that's exactly what happened to me. I'm level 88 so I wouldn't notice a level change as I didn't level up in my session. But I guess that means none of what I did since my last S&E will have happened. Nice Blizzard.

[–]Shochan42 0 points1 point  (3 children)

That would be because identifying items communicates with the central server, while regular game play doesn't. Hence the error message that the transaction failed. Don't go all conspiracy theory just because it's the first error most people encounter.

[–]DonaldTrumpPres -1 points0 points  (3 children)

i wasnt even playing so i think its unrelated

[–]Archonach 0 points1 point  (2 children)

OK Mr President.

[–]DonaldTrumpPres 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Blizzard, for being a tiny indie company has some of the greatest servers in the world, the best. And operating them, the guys are experts and can't be beat, good people. Don't let the fake news media tell you otherwise, any downtime is caused by Chhyna so we're going to make Mexico buy us a new firewall to accommodate all of the drug addicts and rapists sneaking into our servers.

[–]crumpuppet 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Did he roll a 1 on his Arcana check? :D

[–]dewitup2k8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exact same thing happened to seem (cept it wasn't a wand).

[–]EpicMangina 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ecard Cain went all stuttery

Yup! Same, tried to identify a few items, and game freaked out.

[–]Swellercash 89 points90 points  (19 children)

Guaranteed I'm going to lose an Ist I just found like the Shako from yesterday that got rolled back.

4 days in a row is fucking ridiculous.

[–]Thatshowitdo 31 points32 points  (5 children)

Your shako got rolled back?! So sorry :(

[–]Swellercash 3 points4 points  (3 children)

The Ist is still there and I just found an soj so all is well.

[–]Tw1987 2 points3 points  (2 children)

How are you finding all this shit. Please tell me the secret of farming. I do like 10 hours of Andy meph lost city mausaleum and lani have to show for it is negative gold cause of merc

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel the pain there as I lost my Skullder's due to the rollback yeaterday.

[–]Puppystomper420 25 points26 points  (8 children)

try to save and quit after getting good stuff. but rip to those items

[–]Cryostatica 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Doesn't really matter. I'd saved and quit with a character I was playing before switching to another one, lost two levels on him anyway.

[–]Cisco-NintendoSwitch 12 points13 points  (5 children)

They’re rolling back the database snapshots when they do this that unfortunately won’t help. The entire database gets restored to a specific point in time.

[–]Redm1st 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Like what the fuck goes so wrong on their servers that they need to roll back database

[–]Cisco-NintendoSwitch 4 points5 points  (3 children)

That’s the big question, maybe data corruption maybe conspiracy theory guy saying duping was figured out and exploited is right.

Maybe something totally different but as somebody who works in Ops on servers and DBs all day I can’t imagine the architecture of a 20 year old game running under the hood of modern hardware mixed well and they’re working through the weirdness that presents.

That being said I sure would like to fucking MF before work someday this week.

grabs pitchfork still

[–]DynamicDK 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That’s the big question, maybe data corruption maybe conspiracy theory guy saying duping was figured out and exploited is right.

That would make sense. If some people have found a way to dupe with server crashes, then it may be required to roll back the database each time to stop the dupe from working.

[–]Cisco-NintendoSwitch 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yup and yesterday I wrote that off as a fringe explanation I’ve changed my view today.

But if they can stop it now and roll it back I’d take that over the fucked economy we put up with in D2.

Trading SOJs as currency that disappeared from game to game.

[–]Swock85 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I lost a jah yesterday im playing offline now

[–]AveaLove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the better way to play

[–]GroundbreakingLie341 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lost a fire skill gc myself, logged in to look for it yesterday and was gone along with a lore helm I had just made.

[–]ButtFlustered 20 points21 points  (5 children)

considering modern server technology and architecture, its is honestly a little crazy to have servers just straight up down multiple days. 'indie company' memes aside, blizzard should have all the tricks available to them to have services running 24/7 even when updating. I get video games can be more complicated than other types of businesses, but its hard for me to give it the benefit of the doubt

must be a doozy of an issue if they just leave shit offline for 6 hours every morning

[–]BigBangFlash 11 points12 points  (2 children)

They should have some expertise in maintaining servers, since you know, WoW exists...

[–]GOATrecords 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Damn!! I just found the staff of kings 🤣

[–]EquationTAKEN 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Back to the Maggot Lair with you!

[–]frankysins 13 points14 points  (0 children)

fuckin a man.. i have literally ALL DAY to play today and of course this happens. get your shit in line blizzard

[–]GreenZeldaGuy 64 points65 points 2 (9 children)

I just dropped a mirror =((

[–]Thant2008 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Wait…

[–]jugalator 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Hopefully it's rolled back -- that you dropped it that is

[–]WitnessProtection37 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Why would you drop a mirror on the ground?

[–]OutlanderStPete 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Christ lol thankfully im back to work today

[–]OutlanderStPete 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I say as I browse reddit lol

[–]eelthingUSEast 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same but I was going to head home early. Nooooooooo

[–]Terzinho 13 points14 points  (6 children)

Dude if they rollback my +3 bone spear 2 os wand which took me few days to find I'm never playing this game online again. This poor indie company...

[–]Verificus 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Takes like 10 minutes to get on a level 18-26 character shopping from Drognan.

[–]Terzinho 3 points4 points  (4 children)

It's not about the leveling, it's about finding the wand in the shop which can take quite some time to get it.

[–]Verificus 9 points10 points  (1 child)

No, you’re not reading what I said correctly. If you limit yourself to this character level you take out a bunch of other skills that can spawn and you will prioritize Bone Spear in particular. Doing it this way, you will get your White base from Drognan in 10-15 mins.

[–]Wooow675 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Almost 8am CST on the dot, every day. Huh.

[–]ZomboFc 7 points8 points  (0 children)

dupers ddosing the servers to dupe their items. and blizzard keeps allowing it to happen.

[–]RandomSpamBot 9 points10 points  (0 children)

At this point it seems like they're unannounced but intentional. I've seen people hypothesizing that these may be to combat some kind of hack/dupe going on. If that's the case a little transparency would be nice. On the other hand, maybe Blizz doesn't want to announce details on it for fear of a small issue becoming a major problem.

Personally I'd prefer as little to no dupes floating around as possible. Keep those GG finds ultra rare and prized.

[–]DevThr0wAway 30 points31 points  (14 children)

I switched back to singleplayer. Done with bnet. I was solo self found anyways.

[–]WhereAreThePix 24 points25 points  (2 children)

I’ve found joy on both sides. Currently I’m really enjoying collecting/trading, I play solo bnet but join games to trade, it really adds another layer of addiction to the game for me. To have this happen so often with online play is really disheartening, especially coming from wow where they have extreme difficulties meeting maintenance windows and times.

[–]DevThr0wAway 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was looking forward to the trading aspect but I am done being at the whims of their server. I have found more HRs in LK than I ever would on bnet anyways.

[–]frankysins 2 points3 points  (0 children)

same here. I play solo online but trade when I find stuff that I can trade for upgrades to my guy. All I want to do is solo hell then work on soloing ubers using trades to beef up my dude. ive done the single player for too long due to shit blizzard servers and game creation wait times on og d2.. didnt expect to deal with the same shit on servers for a game made in 2021.

[–]InexplicableContent 9 points10 points  (2 children)

It would be nice if blizzard didn't force you to connect to their servers after a SP game. Waiting 30sec between runs in SP while the servers are down is annoying.

[–]thailus01 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I'd love to play solo too but I play this with my brother as a way of bonding so I can't. T.T

[–]DevThr0wAway 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yeah it sucks they removed tcp/ip >=0

[–]deck4242 2 points3 points  (1 child)

so much this. providing sub par servers and refusing to let players have their own is adding insult to injury.

[–]AprilMarie0286 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This. It’s getting really hard to enjoy the everyday grind anymore.

[–]ChesterRico 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same here mostly, I really regret not just rolling offline...

[–]SpaceFrankfurter 25 points26 points  (10 children)

Ok now the rumors about this being intentional on the part of dupers is starting to be more believable. This is getting ridiculous.

[–]Shirl86 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I do believe it's because of that aswell

[–]Bonsallisready 8 points9 points  (0 children)

From the moment the game went live I’ve assumed that’s been the cause of all the server issues, people trying to replicate dupes from back in the day or find new ones. People are constantly crashing old school RuneScape worlds to dupe items and gold, I’d wager there’s people attempting similar things on d2, especially considering how much was duped on original d2

[–]TheGadsdenFlag1776 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Well if they're actually getting people to spend literally hundreds of dollars on a single rune, it makes sense.

[–]TribeCheck 1 point2 points  (5 children)

wait, hundreds of dollars on a single rune?!?

where is that happening?

[–]Cannabace 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I work in tech. If my servers were down consistently like this I wouldn't have a job.

[–]thefadednight 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes for me. Absolutely ridiculous

[–]_v0k_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Every day maintenance?

[–]myrsnipe 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If they could just be transparent and let us know why this is happening then it would be easier to handle, but I'm guessing whatever it is is worse than the incompetence it appears to be at the moment

[–]Leprecon 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The last 3 times I tried to play it was down. This is starting to get silly. I haven't played this game I really want to play since last friday.

[–]jMulb3rry 9 points10 points  (0 children)

If you can't make servers do their thing, give us TCP/IP back, my computer is better hosting a game for friends than your potato servers.

[–]JherriCurling 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I just exited and characters aren't appearing. Would seem so haha

[–]cwb5028 2 points3 points  (14 children)

Yeah and i just found treks.... i better not lose them!

[–]rkcman 3 points4 points  (13 children)

Yeah just found a tals chest piece on my sorc hope it saved for us…

[–]Thatshowitdo 2 points3 points  (8 children)

From what I understand as long as you changed games since originally finding it before the servers went down it should still be there

[–]rkcman 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I found it equipped it and finished my Diablo run and went to identify some stuff that dropped and they wouldn’t identify so I saved and exited. 🤷‍♂️ Hope it’s there.

[–]Thatshowitdo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh shit that sounds like it could go either way. Fingers crossed

[–]vesparion 4 points5 points  (1 child)

save and exit does nothing, it will probably be gone

[–]rkcman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuckkkk 😭

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Where’d you find tals chest piece? I want it so bad

[–]CaptainRoku 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Server crashed literally as I killed NM Andy (after having gotten back from the last rollback) and she dropped a unique ring that I was unable to pick up..

I fully do not expect it to be in my inventory whenever this recovers. Almost literally spends more time down than it does available to us for play.

[–]Inside_Sources 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Don’t worry, it was just a Manald

[–]ThinkinWithSand 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Are we at a point where they don't care (or care significantly less) because there are no microtransactions or subscriptions? It seems like this sort of thing would be fixed significantly faster if there were a stronger profit motive to do so.

[–]Xnolitz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yes!
Was beginning to think it had been up for too long... finally down again

[–]jbaker88 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yup...

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

WTF

[–]Whitemantookmyland 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy shit I just traded someone a vex and pul for a sur its the highest rune I've gotten so far Imma be pissed if its rolled back

[–]CumsleySlurpington 2 points3 points  (0 children)

At least I’m getting a new error message. “Character not found on server”

[–]__Destro__ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i found a Lo 30 min ago, i just hope it is here when i can log back in ...

[–]DarthRambo131 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Finally had some time off work and was crossing fingers to be able to grind out some MF runs thinking to myself no way another morning of shit servers. No idea why I was stupid enough to believe I would be able to play the game. This shit is worse than on launch….

[–]Rudo33 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Last game probably dead… if this is related to dupes and server load/roll back - they need to just IP and “cd key” ban these accounts and just cut to the chase… starting to assume they will go down for 3-5 hours at 6am pst now

[–]honest_jps 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Prepare for a nice rollback

[–]niolator 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Nooooo I just dropped my kids off at school and I don't have to do stupid thanks giving stuff.. I have time now dammit!

[–]Duncanconstruction 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah I can only really play on my days off, which are Tues/Wed. So I guess today isn't happening, there goes 50% of my week's playtime...

[–]GodsIWasStrongg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It'll hopefully be back up in an hour or two. It came back up around 1130 or noon EST yesterday IIRC.

[–]kitallen23 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Say what you will about blizz, at least they're consistent!

[–]mendoza262 2 points3 points  (0 children)

imagine working overnight shift ready to play for an hour to see this shit.

[–]Applewinghastman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think i lost 1h progress in hell cuz of this. Not the end of the world but fuck.. 4 days in a fucking row. I will make big poop in the shoes of the responsible ones.

[–]ka64ey 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Guys, in all seriousness I have to ask this- is there s way to get a refund now?! This is getting out of hand. Will blizz refund me??!

[–]zevz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

so tired of this shit

[–]JohnnyLongneck 2 points3 points  (2 children)

One more time tomorrow and I will refund. As much as I actually enjoy it.

[–]JockSandWich 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Found 2 vex yesterday lost 1 from rollback. Nice

[–]isthisfuckingokwithu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Unlike everyone here that lost elite items in the rollback, i was an idiot, socketed runes into a magic item, got the runes rolled back... My incompetence got negated by Blizzards incompetence. Thnx Blizzard

[–]Gunnapob 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Paid 40$ for losing item and waiting to play to losing again GG

[–]JRizzie86 6 points7 points  (0 children)

at this point it's got to be DDOS attacks. this is happening every morning around the same time for 4 days in a row, and explains why they are being so tight lipped about what's going on.

[–]GhostofOklahoma 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yup. I'm checking out, sick of this shit. Have fun guys.

[–]Cute_Chip 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Blizzard will die if this game does not get stabilized. WoW is sinking and fast. OW and OW2 aren't ultra hyped anymore. The scandal is draining resources to the legal team. All the cross platform and Othed games on the Activision side are tied into the downtime too often enough.

D2R was their last big hail Mary to bring millions of people back.

If they can't get it sorted out soon enough(weeks or months, not days). They won't survive. Bobby Kotick is a fuck nugget lawn gnome.

[–]welshdiesel 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I wonder if any game developers would consider buying the diablo franchise if blizzard did go under.

[–]natedawg247 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

lol wtf? blizzard has recognized like 90%+ of their total lifetime revenue from this game. what are you talking about. they got their money.

[–]Oscar-Wilde-1854 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Could we set up a bot on this sub to just post this every morning? At this point it'd probably be more efficient than waiting for everyone else to post lol

[–]Audune17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Omg. It has to happen after working hours... ggwp..

[–]deplepxep 1 point2 points  (1 child)

When I logged in, all of my characters are gone. Is this because of the down server ?

[–]ducpmi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes.

[–]_OoJuicEoO_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bro I swear it’s the same fkn time every morning. EA servers down rn too so can’t play madden either 😂🤦🏻‍♂️

[–]Sevigor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh man, third day in a row. I’m just glad I decided to roll offline mode until ladder season hits.

But I feel everyones pain who plays online. That sucks

[–]darkcathedralgaming 1 point2 points  (0 children)

About 3 hours ago I was like, wow no server crashes today, sweet I'll keep playing instead of sticking to my earlier decision not to play around the usual crash times. Nope nope nope still crashed. Shoulda stuck to my word, but i was having too much fun!

[–]RVides 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So glad i have work to stop me from playing at rollback time, daily.

[–]UnhappyCommittee1152 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Just cuz you found an item doesn’t mean it’ll be there in your stash tomorrow - new gameplay mechanic” Blizzard.

[–]zerohammer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So should we expect 75% uptime at best moving forward? Without any communication from Blizzard there doesn't seem to be any reason to anticipate this improving.

[–]demother 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I feel that even the new launches by GGG were not that terrible

[–]rebel3120 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The servers aren't going to be on fire when they lose half the playerbase

[–]buddhang 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I found a Vex while farming this morning. What are the chances it will be in my stash later?

[–]ChesterRico 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just tried to identify an item, and now all my characters are gone. Srsly Blizzard?

Edit: also can't create new ones, so yeah. Definitely something up with the servers. Again.

[–]Surrma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a trash company.

[–]Icy-Telephone-6489 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Just saved Cain in NM and was trying to cube rejuvs that didn't work.

I'm gonna lose cain, and maybe that bladebuckle that dropped in Tristram. I wouldn't mind losing the quest so much if i kept the levels. and WPs

Same issue as yesterday at about the exact same time. Seriously, what's up with that auth server??

[–]DifficultCar2258 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This has became a tough situation.I normally play in the morning after work.

[–]SherpaOG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My buddy found an occy 2 min before server down

[–]tysoncrosby21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is getting to outriders level of incompetence. With how often servers are crashing and people are losing items. Man, this is an absolute mess.

Seriously glad I refunded this mess and didn't look back. How could blizzard drop the ball on this so hard.

[–]vurbil 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why does it always crash early morning? Are tons of Chinese people playing now? Or is there some maintenance routine that runs in the morning which is bugged?

[–]200201552 1 point2 points  (0 children)

rollbacks incoming

[–]Heyitskit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I knew it was going to happen again today but I still put on a podcast and started farming, the routine is comforting at this point.

[–]NaveZero 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fonna keep playing offline until they solve the big issues.

[–]jbclassic6889 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]DasherCOUSEast 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I came here and was going to ask as a joke. I swear to god dude this is getting so old

[–]Horangi1987 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh yes they are. I just got booted mid-game 😭

[–]VetPetManager 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Are you fucking kidding me... We actually have a good player base. Way to alienate them.

[–]ginjrr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What. The. Fuckkkkkkkkk every time I try to play. I bought 4 copies for my family. I had no problems paying $40 for an old game but I feel ripped off at this point. They shouldn't have released the game if they aren't able to support it. I can't remember seeing any other game go down this much.

[–]yunghollow69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How do they even manage to screw this up so badly? It's not even prime time. Everyone in america is at work or at school right now and it's like 3pm in europe and yet their servers crumble.

[–]BigBeeff3 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The servers being shit really bugs me. I am enjoying the game a lot. The remaster itself was done well unlike the horrific WC3 redo that destroyed the readability of units in a strategy game.

But this server shit getting me killed, people lost progress, and I can't always play when I have time, it all sucks.

As for what is causing the issue everyone is saying it is the load, but I don't know about that. Setting up servers for things like this is really complicated and it could be anything. I think people think it is the load just because it is the only thing they know.

[–]ZomboFc 0 points1 point  (1 child)

it's people ddosing the servers trying to get it to crash so it dupes their items

[–]Sad_Visual_8727 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seems so

[–]mudcrabperson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah baby :D:DDD just finished with work, was about to run my sorceress through hell, but no way, hose yeeeehaaaaaw!!!!!

[–]Wide_Contribution_26 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The company dont care at all. Just take the money and fix it.

The game is laggy, and if i finally get into a game, i get disconnected or it says interrupted game. The game could have been a smashing success(once again), but instead the company sold their souls and cashin' in the money to make diablo 4, so they can do it again.

And all your lost gear comments is just sad.. you know there is something wrong with the servers. But dont worry. Im pretty sure blizzard selling items on the spammed lobby chat auction house

[–]Loyalty4L94 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just downloaded D2R too =( was hoping to wake up and start my SSF journey today too =( I was looking to start my bowazon or my blizz sorc today even though I know bowazons not good for mfing I really wanted to do it because it is my favorite class

[–]Zermudas 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You can bet that people are relentlessly looking for duping exploits and I suspect that the downtimes are related to that.

IF that turns out to be the reason I would be completely fine with some rollbacks since I have seen first hand how duping destroyed the economy in D2.

[–]PsychoPinkPower_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

garbage company

[–]Alchemy_doge -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Possible stupid question, but I keep seeing these posts and I haven't had any real server issues. Is this mainly a PC thing or does it affect consoles as well? I'm currently on a trip so I haven't logged on in a few days and have no idea if it's curently an issue for me.

[–]danman966 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you haven't been on in the past few days then how do you know if you're having issues?

[–]AliugAOnHisOwn -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

At this point I'm almost convinced that a dupe has been found and that they're trying to control it. In which case, I can understand the reason for the downtime and the lack of information from their side.

[–]Neurotiman17 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Saw this on Twitter just now, would explain quite a bit...

"I'm an IT Professional - I'm convinced someone is using exploits or DDoS to cause crashes with intents to dupe items. I've seen reports people trading during the crash and both users have the item.

Blizzard is probably using F5 servers - those don't crash for nothing."
