D2 LOD - Stuck on "Checking Versions"


I just got back into D2 LOD about 3 days ago. I was clicking around in the different chat channels, rather quickly as all of them seemed empty. All of a sudden I was kicked and cannot log back in. Any reason why I am in this current situation?

Edit: Was able to restore access after changing my PC’s IP Address…

That alone doesn’t work for me. I can log in to US West and play for about 15 minutes before it disconnects and then checks versions. I then have to wait a while before I can log in to US West again, at which point the process repeats.

Super lame. Super, super lame.

Did you verify that you cannot login to any other regions, like US East?

Also, another quick work around for me was connecting to my phones hotspot.
