Warcraft III, Diablo II Patches Coming Soon
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Diablo community manager Bashiok recently offered an update on the status of the promised 1.13 patch for Diablo II. Work on the patch was unexpectedly delayed when the team had to shift focus quickly to resolve a harmul Warcraft III custom map exploit which could allow malware to be spread to users' computers. Now that the Warcraft III patch is in testing work on the Diablo II update will soon resume.

The Warcraft III patch is now on the Public Test Realm (PTR) and testing is progressing. Once that patch is released work can shift back to Diablo II and the 1.13 patch, and we'll be working to getting that patch up on its own PTR as soon as possible. This could be a matter of weeks. Once it's up and in a testing state for all of you, it's then going to be a matter of ensuring the features are good and it's a solid patch. The more people we have testing the patch and providing valid feedback, the better the patch will be, and hopefully the quicker it will be released. So that's my challenge to you. You've been waiting a long time, you want an awesome patch, you want a reset. To get all that, we need good solid testing and feedback, reproduction steps for bugs, detailed descriptions of issues or errors, etc. So once this goes live on the PTR, I expect some crazed-youruinedtheeconomy-testing.
