in front of tomorrow Diablo IV Similar to last weekend, Blizzard said that even more people queued up to play the super-hyped sequel than last weekend, so players are likely to suffer long wait times and other server issues. I am warning you.
In case you missed it, yeah, the next dungeon-crawling action RPG Diablo IV had closed beta last weekBut accessing last weekend’s test required a code, which you can only receive by pre-ordering the game or purchasing a KFC chicken sandwich. (We live in a strange world…) But the long queue times that many players faced just outside the gate, along with delayed gameplay after entering, made things precarious. In particular, I was kicked after just a few minutes of gameplay after waiting in queue for a long time. Ultimately, the experience improved.

Schedule for this weekend Diablo IV beta
Officially Diablo forum, Blizzard Community Manager Adam Fletcher posted an “expectation” that players should join for the second Beta Weekend. And first, Blizzard wants people to be prepared for “long waits”, especially on Friday when the servers first come online. We hope that people will participate.
“Last weekend helped us predict what capacity we should expect this weekend,” explains Fletcher. In summary, we know it can be frustrating, but you need queues to properly stress test your services, and we’re designing them to ensure they do. “
Fletcher also noted that Blizzard is monitoring the number of users playing the beta and any issues that may arise in-game, so they may “take the game offline temporarily” to fix it. I explained that there is
In general, Blizzard wants to clarify that this is a beta and various aspects may not work properly or at all. It’s all part of the process, and while it can be annoying, Blizzard says these betas are “extremely helpful” to the team working on the game.
“We can test server capacity, class balance, usability, accessibility, and other things on a scale that we wouldn’t be able to test on our own,” says Fletcher. “This information is invaluable and ensures the launch experience is as smooth as possible.”
