As planned, Season Five kicked off Friday night in all regions, and the usual new season rush to 70 (and beyond) was a gogogo ptl plz! If you returned to play after some time away, you weren’t alone. Hordes of players tried to get in, and there were numerous reports of “can’t create character” problems right after the season went live… apparently all due to server (over) load.
Those issues resolved themselves once everyone wasn’t trying to make a new character at once, and aside from an issue with the big Achievement pop up displays not always working, Blizzard hasn’t blue posted anything of note in the technical forum.
This issue affects only the Achievement Toast itself. The achievement will still be earned and can be viewed elsewhere in the game.
We are currently investigating a fix and hope to have it ready soon.
Other issues in the new patch (not just Season 5) worth knowing about:
Are you playing Season Five? Does the fresh economy and clean ladders give you a warm happy feeling?
