Battlenet news disappeared (europe)

Hi, im wondering if i should be worried or not. In the past day or so, when i log in to a character, my battle.net news is completely empty. A day or so ago it had things in it. Is there any reason for why its disappeared?

p.s Im on the europe realm

Mnay thanks

I took a disturbing screenie...

But seriously, I think news vanishes after a few months iirc?
Incase you wet yourself each time you notice the news-screen is empty, don't think about a ladder reset, just calmly checkthis site :thumbsup:

To further fan the flames, the Diablo forums on www.battle.net are down. Have been for at least an hour. To toss some water on the flames...ALL the bnet forums are down, not just Diablo. :grin:

About the disappearing news thing... this may sound very strange and raise more questions than it answers, but it's all true anyway.

I am a Macintosh user. I've tried Diablo II both on OS9 and OSX, and usually play on OS9. The strange thing was, that in OS9 the news window has ALWAYS been empty, except when I played non-expansion characters. In OSX however, the news have always been there.

Some time ago I did a complete system reinstall. I'd had two installs of Diablo, one for OS9 and another for OSX, and as some of the files were identical I combined them into a single folder. After this, when I've played Diablo in OS9 when the same folder contains the OSX specific files also, now the news are ALWAYS there, expansion or not.

My theory is it's a bug. What seems to happen is that the news screen is replaced by the chat screen. I can confirm that you can in fact receive private messages without being in chat. Whatever it is, I'm sure it's not any kind of indicator of a coming ladder reset.

This randomly happens. It has no bearing on anything. Its just like if you go to a web page and get a 404 error, page not found. Basically the data didn't load and so a blank space was shown.

I haven't seen the news on East ladder for a couple weeks. I did, however, almosst have a heart attack as i was coming out of a game and into chat when "season 4" flashed on the screen for about half a second. I think i soiled myself. I sat for almost an hour waiting for that graphic to come back up. Just when I convinced myself that it was a hallucination, I saw "Warcraft: Season 4". What a waste of time. Now i want my hour back from Blizz, but I am willing to accept restitution in the form of HRs.:wink2:

Since it can take up weeks to months to legally find a hr yourself, I think one hour only qualifies as an Ort rune orso :rolleyes: Would you still be willing to accept? :grin:

If you consider legit HRs you'd be right, but since Blizz isn't worried I'm not either. I'll take two Jah's and two Ber's from BlizzGGDIILegitItamz.sucka - I hear they have all HRs on sale.
