In August, we shared that Ladder rank play in Diablo II: Resurrected would be available post-launch. We made this decision because we wanted to give players a fair chance to partake in the first season’s race on an equal playing field, especially if there were launch stability issues that could impose on this competitive experience.
Following our launch on September 23, we’re continuing to evaluate our implementation of ladder rank play in Diablo II: Resurrected. We don’t have a specific time we’re ready to share, but this is a priority for our team as we progress forward. We know many players are itching to imbue their character’s name on the leaderboards to claim their legacy.
We’ll be launching the first season of ladder rank play with a handful of critical bug fixes to ensure this competitive experience is smooth at the beginning of this exciting event. As soon as we have a firmer gauge on timing, we’ll update the community so players will have more than enough time to prepare for their ladder journeys.
