A quick patch tonight with brief but interesting patch notes. The US realm is now offline and is estimated to remain down until 11am Tuesday morning while this patch is published to the realms. Here’s the patch notes:
We will soon begin limited testing on minor updates to Battle.net’s communication and login functionality. Patch 1.0.6 includes some of the data for this testing, but please note that the changes will not be visible to players or impact your play experience in any way. For more information, please see this blog post.
We’d lately heard rumors about a tricky but functional duping method that Blizzard had been tracking for some time. Apparently they found it.
There was also a snippet on the incoming Patch 1.0.7:
Patch 1.0.7 is planned to be a larger patch than 1.0.6, and will contain much more than just bug fixes. Many of the changes we’ve discussed in these forums recently are currently scheduled for 1.0.7, and we are looking forward to sharing more details with you concerning it in the coming weeks.
We’re not quite to the point where we’re prepared to delve into the details surrounding patch 1.0.7 and what’s being included just yet. We’re still busy working behind the scenes on a variety of changes, and we want to ensure which changes will be making it into patch 1.0.7 before we formally announce anything.
Hang in there, we have some good stuff on the way!
