With everything being Diablo 3 related at the moment, we must not forget about Diablo 2. The latest news regarding the long awaited and delayed ladder reset has finally arrived with the reset happening on 25 October. Mark those diaries!
We anticipate all Diablo II realms to be down for approximately six hours during the reset. More specific information on realm availability on the day of the reset will be posted in the Battle.net Status forum. When the ladder is reset all existing ladder characters will be converted to non-ladder. All characters and items being converted to non-ladder will remain intact, but once converted these characters will no longer have access to ladder content such as creating ladder-only rune words.
