The problem with that is that now we have to start in SP and then redo everything on MP once it's launched a week or so later. kinda sucks tbh :/


Or just hang out a week and check out the people that run streams, for testing things on SP.

I just think its unfortunate to advertise a date on a video that now has 44k views and not have it come with a multiplayer release. This is a big opportunity to get new players in, especially with the recent popularity of D2 mods via the PoE streamers/PoD mod.

Well that's in the case that they don't make it a full reset. I think most people would like to see a ladder reset, while others want a week of SP testing.

Last thing the devs need is to have a reset, with a bunch of new players, only to have lots of bugs pop up that weren't discovered during testing (or something like that). Plus, it would give more time to update the docs, finish the launcher, etc. before the real show starts.

Still, it would be nice to have a concrete answer one way or the other.

I'm ok with starting SP, then moving to realm. Gives me a chance to try stuff out before jumping right into the competition once ladder finally resets. It also means the beta testers won't have as much of an advantage now. I get that others won't feel the same way, though.

I was under the impression it has been in a CB with dedicated testers for a couple weeks now? Would think that would be more fruitful than having a bunch of people play through the first couple difficulties... Then again this is just my desire for a reset tomorrow morning talking :)

Closed Alpha. The Beta version was being touched up with the changelog release.

tbh i think not having the reset and release together could cause a lot of confusion with new players that being said i still wouldn't mind a open beta before reset either just having servers 100% off so people can't connect and get confused

No doubt it'll cause confusion--it already is. It makes sense to have a delay, though. At least, in terms of logistics.

I hope we'll hear something about it soon™ to clear it up.

EDIT: Look's like we got our answer. Patch and Season 14 coming at the same time (See timer name change). LETS GO BOYS!
