While Diablo patches bring us new content and fun, sometimes they also bring new issues. While the list of bugs so far has been relatively small, with many already having been hotfixed, there are a few that are still hanging around. One such bug that users might experience will have them pulling out the old CTRL-ALT-DEL Task Manager.


The bug works something like this: You close Diablo, and when you go close the laucher, you realize that the Launcher still displays Diablo as running. So you wait a second, and impatience eventually sets in. You press the CTRL-ALT-DEL key combination in order to pull up your Task Manager. Sure enough, there is an instance of Diablo running. 




Not ideal, but Blizzard has stated awareness of the issue. Unfortunately there is no ETA on a fix at the moment.

Ok, I've enough info for now. Thanks to those who provided it.


I've sent it over and discussed it with our QA department and they're investigating it now. We'll have to wait and see what they come up with I'm afraid. (Source)


Hopefully this issue will also get resolved quickly, and please check your Task Manager after exiting the game to ensure that it has fully closed. No one wants the Demons of Sanctuary gobbling up cpu time or memory! 


Happy Hunting!

The process closes itself after a minute or two. Too much time to wait, of course tongue.png

This was the case for some users, however there were others (myself included) who had the process fail to close completely.


Thank you for bringing that up though, people might want to know which case is theirs before they take action (or not). I would wager there are people who experience this bug and yet they are unaware because it just closes later of its own accord!

      Blizzard confirmed they're working on multiple new Diablo projects and they will share more details later this year (probably at BlizzCon).
      In the latest video about Diablo released on Youtube, Associate Community Manager Brandy "Nevalistis" Camel confirmed that the team's working on more Diablo projects and they'll have more information to share later this year. She also briefly mentions Themed Seasons and it's likely they'll come up with a new theme for Season 15.

      Don't miss out on your chance to grab one!
      The only thing more elusive than a Rainbow Goblin in game is a Rainbow Goblin in real life, but here's your chance to grab one!
      To celebrate the Season of Greed, we are releasing a robust and thorough Goblin farming guide for your murderous, loot-craving pleasure! It will take you through a tried-and-tested goblin farming route, suggest some suitable builds and equipment adjustments for the purpose, and even shed some light on goblin farming metagame and etiquette.
      But enough talk - it's your turn to take blade and spell to their mischievous hides! While using our route (or your own!), take a screenshot with your Season 14 character and a double goblin spawn - and post it in the comments below. Your post will act as an entry in a random raffle to win one of the 20 plush toys we will be giving away.

      For the general rules of our giveaways, please refer to this post. The post-specific rules for this giveaway are as follows:
      You need to be on a Seasonal character. Make sure we can see your character and the goblins in the screenshot. (Console players, do your best with the pause screen, if necessary - we understand it is slightly more difficult to do this than on PC.) The giveaway will end on July 2, 2018 at 23:59 CEST. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Winners will be chosen at random after the contest ends. Grab your guide, grab your nephalem and get finding! You might even be lucky enough to find a Rainbow Goblin in-game and outside - as Abd Al-Hazir put it - a ludicrous notion, truly!
      This contest has now ended - winners will be contacted via PM once we have filtered spam entries, multiple entries and so on. Please note that this can take some time, but we will post here once everyone has been contacted.
