Today is Diablo 3’s big day as it celebrates its 1 year birthday with being launched on May 15, 2012. It seems like just yesterday when we were all clicking that login button only to see Error 37 as millions of excited fans simultaneously tried to log in to the servers. The game had a rocky launch and just as rocky beginning, but over the last year with multiple patches the game has been shaping up to be a really fun experience. Patch 1.0.8 just dropped and added even more things that fans have been asking for and there are even more ahead of us. If you bought Diablo 3 on launch and haven’t played it in the last 6 months, today is the day to load it up and give it a shot. And when you decide to load up Diablo 3 and give it a shot, we have
Patch 1.0.8a has released and it’s not a very big patch but is something that is rather significant when you consider what happened after Patch 1.0.8 dropped last week. The auction house has been updated so that the 10 million gold stack works again (this time with less duping bug) instead of the old 1 million gold stack. The other fixes in this patch are basically some bug fixes, UI changes, and performance fixes. You can read the full patch notes for 1.0.8a here: Diablo III Patch 1.0.8a – v.126.96.36.19903 The latest client patch notes can be found here. Visit our Bug Report forum for a list of known issues. GENERAL Made improvements to address “rubberbanding” issues encountered when using movement-based abilities like Tempest Rush, Strafe, and Whirlwind AUCTION HOUSE The stack size of gold on the real-money auction house has been increased again to 10 million (up from 1 million) CLASSES Barbarian Passive
Blizzard is celebrating the one year birthday of Diablo 3 (May 15) and they’re inviting you to help celebrate with them. It sounds like there will be more coming this week, but as of right now if you are interested in celebrating all you have to do is print out the card they provided and take a picture of yourself holding it. When you have your picture you can submit it to BlizzardContest@blizzard.com or tweet it @Diablo using the #D3BDAY hashtag. The Diablo community team will pick their favorites throughout the day and retweet them or post them in the Facebook gallery. Just a heads up, but we at Blizz Pro will be joining the celebration as well and we have some pretty cool giveaways planned starting tomorrow. You’ll just have to come back though tomorrow to find out what we’re giving away and how to win. You can read
This has been quite the busy week with the Diablo 3 team since Patch 1.0.8 has been released. Production Director John Hight made a post on the official forums detailing what all went down with the gold duping bug in Diablo 3 this week, how it happened, what Blizzard has done about it, and what they will continue working on with it. For those who are new to this news I posted an article earlier about the Diablo 3 gold duping bug that caused trillions of gold to get duped in the game and completely ruin the economy. The bug was caused by the last minute decision to increase the gold stack size from 1 million to 10 million gold and it seems there was probably some improper testing as they didn’t catch the overflow bug that caused it (which I detailed a little bit about in my last post).
With each and every new patch there are bound to be bugs that happen – some are big, some are small. Then there are some that are show stoppers and the Diablo 3 team was met with one such bug when they released Patch 1.0.8. Players were able to dupe trillions of gold yesterday after the patch was released. The D3 team acted quickly and was able to fix the bug – however no roll back is going to be performed. It looks as though the solution moving forward is letting the current auctions expire by taking down the auction house and then taking action against the players that abused the bug. There has been some pretty good speculation on what has caused the bug on both r/diablo and r/programming on Reddit. The most popular theory being that the D3 team included the increase in max gold in a sale
After many many weeks on the PTR Diablo Patch 1.0.8 has now officially launched a week before Diablo 3 celebrates it’s one year birthday. Some of the big things in this patch are being able to identify all items in your inventory with one click by speaking to Deckard Cain or by using the Book of Cain that can be found near the shared stash on all Acts, bonuses for magic and gold find in multiplayer games for each person in the game, and monster density increase in Acts 1, 2, and 4 to make them more fun for players to farm. Of course there’s also various class changes done as well. You can read more about the full patch notes here: Diablo III patch 1.0.8 is now live in the Americas.
