Q u o t e: So yeah, we're still working on the patch. It's coming along really well. We're getting there. I can't give an estimate or date, we're expecting there to be a good amount of testing required due to the types of changes being made. We want to take our time and put out a solid patch, and that means we don't have a release date right now.
Some exciting news - and it also may be some comfort - due to the types of changes we're making we will be offering the Diablo II 1.13 patch for testing and feedback on a test realm before its release. We'll have more information about how you'll be able to help test it in the coming weeks.
Bashiok than may i ask why the heck do you guys announce that the patch might be out at the end of april... get everyone excited... kill the trading market... than announce something like this. Even though i am excited i really think you guys should not do things like this. I don't think the patch and reset won't happened until july or later and now the market has died. It is just the wrong way to approach something corporation wise. It is like telling a kid he is getting a new bike in few weeks than telling him you will get it when we have more money in the future.
