Diablo 2 ladder reset is coming! Diablo 2 ladder system will be reset on May 14.The "Ladder" in Diablo 2 is essentially a scoreboard that keeps track of the top characters in each realm. Interesting! May 15 is the one-year birthday of the Diablo 3 on-line, so select the day for ladder reset that there any particular significance to it?
It's that time again! On the morning of Tuesday, May 14, they'll be conducting maintenance in order to reset the Diablo II ladder. They anticipate the realms could be down for up to six hours, and during that time all existing ladder characters will be converted to non-ladder. All characters and items being converted to non-ladder will remain intact, but once converted these characters will no longer have access to ladder content such as creating ladder-only rune words.
This ladder reset, like all those before it, creates a clean slate where all ladder characters begin at level 1 with no previous items to help them. To participate, simply wait until the Diablo II realms return to service on May.
There are two main character types on the Diablo II Realms: Normal and Ladder. Players choose these character types when creating their characters via check boxes as they are naming their characters.
Any character that is not marked as a Ladder Character is a Normal Character. A Ladder Character is a special character type that is allowed to compete on the ladder. These characters are separate from Normal Characters with their own games and economy.
Overall, Ladder in Diablo 2 is a way for Blizzard to help control the economy. If the economy is getting out of hand, a new Ladder season will just start the economy over because everything is removed and has to be found from scratch again.For more information about Diablo3 you can check out
