Diablo 2 Resurrected has not had the best of launches with multiple issues with the game at launch from a system requiring AVX, the GPU error, constant server problem, and now there is a bug that does not update the queue. The Diablo 2 queue not moving or high queue times is a bug that’s appeared after Blizzard started to limit the number of players on the server. While the attempt has been mostly successful as the cases of server errors have reduced, it’s led to a new bug that’s frustrating players. Users find themselves on a queue that does not move. They are stuck in the same position for several minutes, which should not be happening. If you have faced a similar issue, keep reading as we will put light on the situation and suggest fixes.
Diablo 2 Queue Not Moving or High Queue Times Fix
Before we go ahead with suggesting solutions for the issue, you should know that Blizzard is aware of the problem and while it may appear that the queue is not moving, that’s not the case. It’s a visual bug that does not update your current spot in the queue.
Here is what the devs shared in the latest patch on the Blizzard Forum, “We should note that the higher your queue number appears, the slower the number will refresh in the prompt. The number is still refreshing in the background, so we do not recommend leaving queue as this will create further delays to you entering the game during these high traffic windows.”
The long queues may still be a problem as a large number of players attempt to join the limited spot the game has to offer. The fix for long queues is the usual, attempt to play the game when there are fewer players. Weekends would be packed with players so you can expect higher than normal queues. Whereas, weekdays and office hours would have fewer players on the game and hence, not such a long queue. The only permanent solution can come from the devs. Hope they expand the size of the servers and can facilitate more players without the game leading to errors.
