Load Testing Underway

  • Attention ladies and gentle nephalem,

    We’re currently performing load testing on the both the Reaper of Souls Closed Beta and Patch 2.0.1 PTR. Testing began this morning and will continue through Sunday, December 15.

    For those who may be unfamiliar with what load testing is, it basically means that we’re artificially limiting the number of players who can be logged into the game at any given time as well as the amount of hardware game data can be stored and run on. The goal of this testing is to put our queuing system and game servers under heavy load so that we can perform server optimizations and make sure that said services perform as smoothly as possible for when patch 2.0.1 and Reaper of Souls launch.

    Please note that, due the increased load on our queuing system and games servers, you may experience periods of high latency, disconnects, or long queue times while playing on the Patch 2.0.1 PTR and Closed Beta. While this is completely normal, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

    Thank you to everyone currently playing the PTR and Closed Beta! Your efforts and patience will help us tune the game for optimum performance.
  • Update: Load testing successfully completed last night (Sunday, December 15). Thank you to everyone who logged in to the PTR and Closed Beta last week and over the weekend and helped us test!

    Please note that while load testing has concluded, players may still experience some issues with performance whenever the PTR and Closed Beta are at high capacity.
