So I logged into a friends Diablo II account to save his characters from being deleted, they had names people wanted and so if they did expire they would be over-written if someone were to take that name.
The first thing I did was try to log into a character that did not need any “refreshing” - I basically wanted to see how his Assassin gear was looking like, after I had not seen it online for a while. So yeah, as you’d imagine I entered the game with the Assassin and went to create game, pressed create and got hit with;
“You are in a queue to create a game: Position in Queue: 17000000”.
And it doesn’t stop there. I decided it was probably just a bug, so I backed out and tried again, greeted with the same message. I backed out fully to the account login page and logged into my own account, and low and behold I’ve also been hit with this huge restriction, for what?
Why have I been restricted for 1700000 / 20days for logging into an account? Why has this now spread to my account? What am I missing here?
Are Blizzard going to refund my gear across three accounts? Are they going to refund the key’s that I had recently bought that they have now seemingly locked for no reason at all? What about my characters that are also facing the threat of being deleted?
