Diablo 3 Battle.Net Stress Testing Underway on PTR

The PTR is one again live but there’s no new content. This time, Blizzard wants you to test some new behind-the-scenes server magic on the Diablo 3 servers.

We are working on some behind-the-scenes optimizations, and we need you to help test them out! Some of these solutions are not the kind we want to deploy immediately to live servers via hotfix as they come with their fair share of risks—so we need your help!

Join us starting today, August 25, to stress test a special 2.4.2 PTR that includes these optimizations. There’s nothing special we need you to do besides logging in and play the game to your heart’s content!

We’re looking for players of all types to participate, so what are you waiting for? Download that PTR and hop right in!

A few important notes:

  • There is no new content included on this PTR.
  • While you will be able to copy your existing characters, we will also be activating the 2000% Legendary Find buff to encourage participation.
  • As a reminder, any progress made on the PTR does not transfer over to your live account.
  • We will not be opening the PTR feedback or bug report forums, as manual feedback is not needed; we simply need you to play!
  • Over the course of the PTR, server performance may vary.
  • This PTR will only be available for a limited time, and we’d greatly appreciate all the help we can get in testing it quickly and with as many participants as possible!

  1. lol 🙂 this could be a preparation for some solid new content patch, or at least it appears like that 😉

    • More likely the opposite. This is Blizzard throttling down D3 and optimising it for the long sleep.

      • lol yeah, that’s another way to interpret it. But I dont think D4 is coming out any time soon, so it would surprise me if they would not release further content to bridge the time till D4 so fans have something to play and it also reignites the interest in the franchise.
