Server issues are becoming a regular thing in Diablo 2: Resurrected even several weeks after launch, with login and connection woes happening daily, Eurogamer reported Monday.

A glance at developer Blizzard’s customer support pages on Twitter paints a somewhat bleak picture of Diablo 2: Resurrected. Since the game’s Sept. 23 launch, nearly every support tweet has addressed connection problems — over 20 on Blizzard’s Americans support page alone. Resorting to emergency maintenance for Diablo 2: Resurrected on Friday, which lasted several hours.

“We will be performing emergency maintenance and the game will be unavailable during this time,” Blizzard said on Twitter. “Thank you for your patience and apologies for any inconvenience caused.”

Blizzard restored Diablo 2: Resurrected servers later that day, but things went to hell the next day. Loads of players were unable to authenticate and log in yet again.

“We’re currently investigating an issue affecting our authentication servers, which may result in failed or slow login attempts,” Blizzard said later on Twitter. That notice came barely 24 hours later after everything was allegedly ship-shape.

Naturally, the memes from disgruntled fans were top-tier. Sometimes, laughter is the only way to cope with frustration.

Keep in mind that connection problems are going to hit every video game that utilizes online play. For example, Amazon’s New World is still experiencing massive login queues, and it came out two weeks ago. Heck, Marvel’s Avengers couldn’t even flawlessly transition to Xbox Games Pass without leaving some players with issues.

All these server complications weren’t present during my review for Diablo 2: Resurrected, strangely enough, even if I wasn’t a fan of the game in general.
