Diablo II Ladder Reset, Diablo III Hotfixes: April, Still No Date for 1.0.8, Maintenance is Breaking the Report Spam Feature, No

Diablo II Ladder Reset May 14th
A ladder reset is upon us!

It's that time again! On the morning of Tuesday, May 14, we'll be conducting maintenance in order to reset the Diablo II ladder. We anticipate the realms could be down for up to six hours, and during that time all existing ladder characters will be converted to non-ladder. All characters and items being converted to non-ladder will remain intact, but once converted these characters will no longer have access to ladder content such as creating ladder-only rune words.

This ladder reset, like all those before it, creates a clean slate where all ladder characters begin at level 1 with no previous items to help them. To participate, simply wait until the Diablo II realms return to service on May, log in to Battle.net, and tick the “Ladder Character” checkbox when creating a new character. You can track ladder character leveling progress by clicking on the Ladder button from the main Diablo II in-game Battle.net interface.

Maintenance is Breaking the Report Spam Feature
It seems after each maintenance the Report Spam feature breaks. Blizzard is investigating the issue.

Your team does realize this isn't the first time this has happened? I can think of at least 2 other maintenance Tuesdays where the spam report has broken.....you would think the same exact thing would stop being broken once a month under the same circumstances.
Yup. It's something we're aware of and trying to troubleshoot. We're taking a look at previous reports, bug fix implementations, and maintenance processes to see if we can identify where the revert is happening/what's causing it.

No Controller Support for PC
Same goes for a mouse/keyboard combo on the console version.
