    Server Maintenance - Beta Patch 15 Tomorrow
    It looks like the release date was not the only good news, tomorrow we should be seeing a new beta patch hit servers!

    While we are not planning to wipe characters with this patch, we will be resetting all auctions on both the gold and currency-based auction houses. If any changes are made during maintenance that may require a character wipe, we'll be sure to provide an update in this thread.

    Thank you for your patience! As always, patch notes will be posted here once the patch is live.

    Any knowledge about a second BETA wave for Europe?

    Another patch so soon? I bet it's because of the "Beyond the Gate" exploit. :P

    edit: read post below me, (as far as we know, right now no confirmation, but the poster below me says some people are getting in)

    I got in today via opt in, others got in today aswell on EU d3 forums. So I would asume there was a wave going out today obviously.

    This patch is really needed, the AH is so broken right now. Expired offers are still there, Items costing 0 gold, search functions not working properly (never did).
    Can't join a public game - error message or no game at all. And, could be my problem though, I'm having much more latency now.
    Hope they fix whatever they can.

    Getting patch 15 so quickly after patch 14 leads me to believe there will be no major changes to the game. Probably some small glitches, fixes, and the like. They are not wiping yet again, so yeah ... I'm not expecting anything major to be touched.

    Most likely, yes. Personally, I'm holding on to the faint hope that the Skill UI gets another change. :beg:

    Game released on the 15th ... then Patch 15 arrives. Fun coincidence :)
    It has been said... that in the end of all things... we would find a new beginning. But as the shadow once again crawls across our world... and the stench of terror drifts on a bitter wind... the people pray for strength and guidance. They should pray for the mercy of a swift death... for I've seen what the darkness hides!
    ... I don't think it's safe here.
    Hoping for Pink Chain Lightning in D3!

    12 hour down time =/. Why does that convince me there will be more than some small AH fixes >.>
  • #12

    12 hour downtime suggests some big patching,

    Not at all. During the beta, it has been. Because of patch updates that have almost always been substantial changes.

    WoW downtime is like 3-4 hours or so when there's no changes. When there is a patch rolling out, it can be 7-8 hours.

    It's funny cuz it's true. I don't play wow anymore, but I always thought it was weird how often they'd get unexpected problems during regular maintenance. You'd think the company would have a bit more control over their servers.
