Loading Screens

Q: Why is my character still attacked while at a loading screen?

A: As mentioned in the Technical Alpha Learnings blog, characters will no longer spawn in a hostile place until the game is fully loaded, preventing characters from getting attacked or harmed during a loading screen. This fix is not in the build for the Early Access and Open Beta, but it will be in the game for launch. We didn’t want to delay the timing of the upcoming tests for this issue.

Can I actually clarify please, does this mean Blizzard intend to release Diablo II: R with loading screens? Surely not…

There was an issue in Tech Alpha that loads after taking TPs were pretty long. Even loads into Acts.

This won’t be addressed in beta but I can confirm that the team has been working on a fix for it and it will be available for the retail launch game. It just didn’t make implementation into the beta builds.
