Technical Support

11 Jan CROWDS on Twitter - Season 7 Ep25: All Good Things About half a year ago, we've begun a little experiment to tap into the potential of the playerbase to help itself when it comes to a variety of issues that may not necessarily require contact with Blizzard customer support, such as technical issues or game-related questions. A number of volunteers, experienced at Blizzard games and interested in lending a helping hand to fellow players, have signed up over the months, contributing to our efforts in seeing our players' problems resolved. This CROWDS program was a player-based support initiative that allowed volunteers to help their fellow adventurers via Twitter, using an Android-based mobile app tied to our own social media channels. This app allowed participating helpers to see and respond to tweets that were asking Blizzard for help. You can find more detailed information on CROWDS and how to use the app on our support site article. Alas, the initiative has run its course and we are preparing to lay this program to rest as we proceed to look for other ways to improve the reach and efficiency of our support. Before this curtain will close, however, we wanted to run one last season in order to give everyone a chance to assemble one last time, to make use of this tool for a few more weeks, and to have a last shot at qualifying for our rewards. No matter whether you're a veteran CROWDS helper or want to give this a try before the opportunity fades, all are welcome to subscribe to the app and help their fellow gamers! These are the rewards from which you may pick, should you manage to outshine most of your fellow participants: Hearthstone: Card Packs (x7) Heroes of the Storm: Loot Chests (x12) Overwatch: Loot Boxes (x11) StarCraft II: Co-op Commanders (pick any 2 and/or share StarCraft II: Announcers (pick any 2 and/or share with a friend) with a friend) NOTE: Please be aware that using protected Tweets may prevent others from viewing your responses, disqualifying you from participation. Be sure to set your Tweets to public in order to remain visible and eligible for potential rewards!Hagut0 11 Jan

2h Stuttering/fps issues on new laptop Greetings fellow players! I hope you are enjoying the new season! My technical issue is that when I play Diablo 3 (and other games) on my laptop I have stuttering/fps drops every 25/30 seconds (both on higher and lower settings). These stutterings are always occuring when fighting bigger fights and when entering a new game/rift/area. Looking at the specs it should be able to run Diablo 3 smoothly on my laptop, but that is not the case. Does anyone know what the issue could be? Here are my specs (all drivers are updated): (HP Pavilion 15-ck005no) Windows 10 Home 64 Intel® Core™ i7-8550U (1,8 GHz , up to 4 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, 8MB cache, 4 cores) NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 (2 GB GDDR5 ) 256 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD + 8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB) Thank you for your help and support.Dalve0 2h

3h Lost Hardcore Hero to Server Crash I was going through a rift on one of my hardcore heroes when the environment stopped responding to my character and after about 10 seconds the game refreshed then kicked me from my game session. I tried to start a new game and got errors saying I couldn't start a new game or join a game so I restarted my client to find that my Hardcore hero is now dead. I demand some recompense for this horribly unfortunate event which is in no means fair for a player of your game.Zytela2 3h

I tried to log on yesterday, after the new season's start, and when I enter diablo, on the logging site, I get error 1011 and cannot log on to my account. Two days ago everything was fine, did not do any changes to the computer system, install new things or anything similar. The problem is still here today, tried rebooting computer and router and other troubleshooting of similar connection errors. Apart from Diablo 3, the internet works fine, other Blizzard games (hearthstone) as well. How can I fix this? It's weekend finally and would be nice to play the game.klaplu1 21h

3d The Famous Error Code 317002 Getting code 317002, can't start or join a game. I did a search and tried every suggestion I could find in any previous forum posts, nothing has made any difference. I do note that all my friends -- even the obsessive ones who are never offline -- are offline and not playing. Is the server down? Did someone forget to feed the server hamster again? I'll send in a ticket too, just wanted to see if I'm alone in this problem, or if everyone else is just silently screaming in rage.Deartháir24 3d

3d Diablo 3 frame drops lagging or freezing ever min or so Every 30 seconds to 1 min I get a lag spike/ frame drop. It seems to be the same thing other people have reported previously. Is there anyway to resolve this issue? It's making the game unplayable. Defiantly not buying the expo until I get this figured out. Have reinstalled all my drivers. And I'm running a GTX 1080 from evga. There frames are over 60 fps all the time except when is "lags" and even then the OSD does not register low frame rate. Any help in this matter is appreciated.Dragoon9 3d

4d D3 could not initialized Hi, I just played it for a while, and found that sometimes the game was frozen for a few seconds after an update tonight.

4d [Bug] Enchanting lowering statistics on items Got a new weapon today, Fate of the Fell (Two-Handed Flail, Crusader weapon) no socket, good stats otherwise - 2507 DPS (I remember this because it was the same as my current weapon, but had more Strength and a nice passive). Decided to reroll the elemental damage affix (it had around 1200-1400 Fire damage I believe, as well as +8% damage) on it in hope of a socket (lets face it it's mandatory). Around seventeen attempts later and having had a +DMG roll running on it for the time being which increased the DPS of the weapon to around 2900, I get a socket roll, only to have the damage of the weapon reduce from 2900 DPS to ~948 DPS. As I said earlier, the weapon when it dropped had 2507 DPS, so removing the enchanted flat +DMG bonus should NOT have reduced the DPS of the weapon so drastically, should it? I used my last Forgotten Soul to reroll again so that the weapon was actually useful still, and was lucky enough to get a reasonable flat +DMG roll, taking the weapon back up to around 2800 DPS. I'd like to know if there's any scope to be refunded materials for this issue, seeing as it seems to obviously not be working as intended? If I'm misunderstanding how the flat +DMG affix works of course, I'll be happy to have that explained to me.Juyo5 4d

14 Feb Diablo III won't start - unexpected error Hi there, I've encountered this error for the first time in almost 5 years. The error code is 3B72AAAD-A8D7-4085-ADB8-CF6EF1071CCF. I've recently updated the nVidia driver to 378.49 but as far as I remember the game worked fine. I've also tried deleting the cache and tools folder as well as repairing the game. A patch was uploaded but the game still doesn't launch. Thanks in advance for your help.Smiley8 14 Feb
14 Feb Video card suddenly doesn't support DIablo III I played Diablo III just fine last monday, and all of sudden today my video card doesn't support the game anymore. It's a AMD Radeon R9 380 which is on the list of supported graphic cards here: Windows and all drivers are up to date. The AMD Gaming Evolved app does say Diablo III is not optimized but I have to start the game (and I can't) in order to optimize it. I have already reset the game settings to default and tried rebooting. Windows did have the creators update last week so maybe there is a problem there?Steem16 14 Feb
