It’s hard to believe that Diablo II is nine years-old, isn’t it? But what is not hard to believe is that Blizzard is still supporting the title, and continues to release patches and content for the super dungeon game.
Today’s a prime example of this support, as patch 1.13 has been released on the public test servers. It includes the addition of character respecialization, and you get this free opportunity once you have completed the Den of Evil quest along with a new challenge included in the “Hell” difficulty mode.
“Players of Hell Difficulty Realm games are hereby warned once again, that a series of new and challenging tests await you! The answer lies within Diablo’s Bosses, which span across the world from the Den of Evil to the Throne of Destruction” revealed the patch notes.
The usual list of bug fixes, class changes and balancing were also noted, and if you want to try it out before it goes live (no date yet) , log into the ClassicBeta through Battle.net when starting up the game.
You can read the full notes through a Q&A through here.

Blizzard is planning on patching Diablo II again, and this time it wants to know what players want addressed.
The forums over at Blizzard are waiting for your suggestions for v1.13, and the game maker’s goal is to “get an overall sense of the single most important request from every member of the community.”
So far, the wishlist is pretty long with requests for bug fixes, getting rid of nerfing issues, supporting different resolutions, etc — so hurry on over and provide your input before it gets lost in the shuffle.

Blizzard’s issued a statement confirming the axing of 350,000 accounts from Battle.Net which were found to be using “third-party hacks” in StarCraft and Diablo II.
“The Diablo II CD keys associated with the closed Diablo II accounts are now restricted from playing on Battle.net for approximately 30 days,” said the firm.
“Repeat offenders will have their accounts closed and their CD keys permanently banned from Battle.net.
“As a reminder, we reserve the right to close the accounts and ban the CD keys of players who are caught cheating on Battle.net. Cheating ruins the game experience for legitimate players, and we will not tolerate it.”
