D2 Resurrected is an amazing announcement, but also rises some important questions for “D2 veterans” still playing on the (closed battle.net) realms, which I’d appreciate to be commented officially:
Will we be able, to convert/play our closed battle.net characters to D2R (i.e. D2R non-ladder)?
[Identification or unambiguous assignment to BattleTags could be achieved by using the e-mail addresses already connected to existing D2 closed battle.net accounts for password recovery purposes]
If not, will the “old” battle.net continue to exist, allowing us to play our characters as usual?
If not, could you pleeease find a way to provide our character save files [again, via e-mail connected to our current D2 battle.net accounts] to play them offline and open battle.net in “old D2” (or even better: in D2R)?
I’m really concerned, especially about 2. and 3., because not being able to play existing characters in D2R is one thing, but losing everything would be plain disappointing…
Please leave an official comment on this, reassuring your “real die hard D2 veterans” still playing on closed battle.net realms (spending 20 years’ blood, sweat and tears), that you didn’t forget about them.
These the “hard core” fans with the most devotion for the game, you’re making D2R for!
I know many of them and losing their progress after thousands of hours is no option (they’d rather quit), so I wanted to bring this up and hope there will be some kind of solution for them, too.
Basically, D2R (new graphics, same game mechanics, only qualitiy of life changes) is all this core community always dreamt of, but they want to play it with their chars!
So please make sure, that the release of D2R will be a great day for everyone.
