West is really messed today

Hi,

Anyone notice that West is really messed up today. Couldn't log on at 8 am this morning (Central US), it is now 12:00 and can log in. Unfortunately not able to actually enter a game. Not me alone as the active games list is about 3 games long with none active for more than 20 seconds.

Just my luck on one of my few off days from work.

Wondering if the servers are screwed up or if something "special" is happening. Wouldn't suspect a ladder reset....well hope not as about to use accumulated wealth for an Infinity.

Re: West is really messed today

Starting Wednesday, May 28th, 2008 at 5am PDT (12:00 UTC), Battle.net Services in USWest / Lordaeron will be unavailable. This will include Starcraft, Brood War, Diablo, Diablo II, Warcraft II BNE and Warcraft III game services. Estimated maintenance window is 6 hours.
That's what he's talking about, I believe.

There doing mainteance work as said above. the expected time is 6hours. but maintenance work on comps..... will probably be nearer 24 hours

A ladder reset is highly doubtful as bliz have said on their site that they have no plans to reset ladder or make a new patch yet and when they do it will be announced.

i just went to the bathroom, know what that means ? ladder may be resetting !!!!

people really need to stop suggesting ladder resets over every little thing. you're going to be waiting at least a year before another one happens.

You know, I thought it was nothing except a regular check-up for the servers, but something tells me that this may not be the case.

First, the new Ladder Season is over due.
Second, on D2jsp, a Diablo2 trading forum (much bigger in size than that of Dii.net), a number of players are selling entire ladder accounts under the impression - I Quit. I have never seen so many "I Quit" sell-offs in a short span. Questionable isn't it?

In conclusion, I won't be surprised that Blizzard resets the ladder in the next week or two.

the ladder season is NOT over due. each ladder season has lasted at least a year, with the last one going on for roughly two years. based on those facts alone we still got another month before you can claim a reset is over due.

my left nut is more credible then d2jsp.
I strongly suggest you read this: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=448594

its people like you who make these silly rumors spread like mad. no offense. speculating is not fact.

Ok. I do respect your opinion, and yes, I have read the URL you've linked.

And for your information, if one post regarding the Ladder Reset is your definition of the following, I question your ability to react with poise. No offense.

One more note, speculation is a premature fact.

Well, yes, people speculate that the world will end. It's a fact in one way on another (be it an Armageddon, a Mutual Assured Destruction, or simply the Sun collapsing in a few billion years). But exactly how premature is it?!? No-one knows, to quote Queens of the Stone Age.

It's not one post. Its many many people/posts over looking all sense of fact and coming up with statements that lack any sort of logic. aka its just someone speculating and starting rumors.

thats why that thread i linked you to exists, because people keep starting those rumors thats based off nothing.

my lack of poise is nothing against you and i apologize if i come off as rude as its not my intention. its just frustarating seeing people/mods/random animals having to repeat the same crap over and over again to people who think ladder is resetting over the tiniest thing.

just because west is down doesnt mean theres a ladder reset is coming.
just because a bunch of kids over at d2jsp forgot to take their riddilin and sold all their ladder accounts doesnt mean ladder is resetting.
just because a full moon is coming soon doesnt mean ladder is resetting.
just because this threads probably going to get closed soon doesnt mean ladder is resetting.
just because i could go on and on with this doesn't mean ladder is resetting.

no one but blizzard knows when ladder is resetting.

Re: West is really messed today

just because bliz does 'something' with a d2 realm server (which also hosts warcraft, starcraft, d1, and more) doesnt mean that there will be a d2 reset or patch ect...

when they post on their main or news page that there will be a patch/reset only then and only then will i believe it

@superjayson, your left nut just doubled its rep points (my book still shows 0)

fyi, it passed jsp a long time ago
