The Diablo 4 beta started on March 17 and expectedly, tons of people dove right into it. And, even more predictably, that caused a lot of annoying technical issues, mainly ridiculously long queue times and connection issues, with players often being thrown out of the game after waiting ages to get it.

That’s obviously really bad, and the developers at Blizzard agree with that. In a new statement posted to the official Diablo forums, the team promised players that they are “actively working” on fixing these issues.

Diablo 4 Devs Comment On Beta Issues

The devs are currently managing the amount of players that can get into the game, which will be increased as soon as they have solved the issues with disconnections. And yes, they’re basically doing the “STAY IN LINE” meme, but for the Diablo 4 beta queue:

The team is working through some issues behind the scenes that have been affecting players and causing them to be disconnected from the servers. For the time being, we are managing the rate of players entering the game until we have a full fix for the disconnection issues. This is done so we can ensure stability amongst players who get into the game after the queue process. If you are in queue, we ask that you stay in queue to ensure you do not reset your timer. We plan to have more accurate queue countdowns in place for Open Beta next weekend as noted in our Known Issues post.

It's good to see that the devs are aware of the issues and working on solutions. And yes, please give me a more accurate timer; there’s no way I’m supposed to wait for two hours, right? Anyway, time to jump back into Diablo 4, hopefully it will not take me years to get a sess going.
