The D3 PTR went online Friday morning and was playable some of the day, but as more and more players tried to get on, technical issues ensued. Logging in and staying logged in became very difficult Friday evening, and finally the techs pulled the plug, with Lylirra sent to deliver the bad news.

    We will be bringing the PTR offline for the weekend in order to troubleshoot issues affecting PTR account creation, character creation, and login. While this is only public test (the first for Diablo III) and uneven game performance is expected, we want to make sure that the experience is as smooth and stable as possible. It’s going to take some extra work on our end to make that happen, and the PTR will need to be offline while we make our updates.

    Thank you so much to everyone who submitted reports about the problems you experienced. We’ll be working diligently over the next few days to resolve as much as we can and get the PTR back online so you can test and provide feedback on patch 1.0.5.

    Oh Diablo 3… why won’t you let me love you? So, it’s back to Torchlight 2, then. Or I could just play regular v1.0.4 Diablo III, I suppose…
