Hello, after almost a month of playing the game, which for the most part was AWESOME apart from all the server maintenance, I’m getting stuck on a checking versions page, and it will end with “Battle.net is not responding. Please try connecting again in a few minutes.”
Mind you, I was acquiring NUMEROUS temp bans for what seems to be nothing. Like, sitting in a game and chatting with friends, joining a public chaos/baal run and leaving when its done, magic finding, hitting ESC merely TWICE when wanting to select a different character to transfer items to and the list goes on filled with just basic things every player/customer does to enjoy or even simply PLAY the game.
I’ve looked through most of the forum and have completed the following per some instructions:
- Wait 24 hours.
- Uninstall D2 and re-install, making sure you get the patches too.
- Requesting a new IP from your ISP.
- Hard booting your ISP equipment.
- Releasing and renewing IP from command prompt. ( Windows )
- Connecting to a different internet source entirely.
- Allowed it as an exception to Windows Firewall.
Currently, I’m leaving D2 uninstalled for 24 hours and will try reinstalling it tomorrow evening and see if I have any luck.
If someone could shed some light onto this matter, I would really appreciate it.
EDIT: I’m learning that someone else was banned for using a VPN? During these unprecedented times where we now work from home, a VPN is almost second nature. Please tell me that isn’t why I was banned?!
