Randomization and level design in the future of Diablo 3
Creating good random map generators is a difficult task in video games, and something we’ve seen done with relative success in all of the Diablo games.

Maintenance Tonight, but No Diablo 3 Patch Tomorrow

Posted 30 Apr 2013 by

Weekly maintenance tonight, but no patch included, alas.

We will be performing scheduled game maintenance for Diablo 3 on Tuesday, April 30th. Maintenance will begin at 3:00 AM PDT and is expected to last for 8 hours. During this time Diablo 3 will not be available for play. In addition, many web services may be unavailable.

Can any of you confirm if we are getting patch 1.08 during tomorrows downtime?

In related news, the Doggie dog to easy experience has been nailed shut. No word on sanctions or roll backs for people who abused the exploit, but as it didn’t involve duping items or doing anything to ruin the play experience for others, that’s probably not a big surprise.

Bug Fixes

  • Pets summoned by players and items no longer grant experience when killed in the Scorched Chapel.
  • So, at least another week until v1.08 goes live, if they stick to their usual schedule of enabling new patches during the usual Tuesday morning maintenance time. Is anyone else putting in some extra character preparation? With such big boosts coming to DiabloWikiexperience gain via multiplayer and DiabloWikiMonster Power, it wouldn’t be a waste of time to organize some of your friends to plan some group power leveling sessions. Especially if they’re much higher level than you and you’re largely hoping to tag along with a Sun Keeper in your sweaty paw. *cough*
