Server Maintenance Thursday, Possible Patch 1.0.5a

Scheduled Diablo III server maintenance Thursday at 5AM PDT, expected to take 2 hours

A slightly unusual Thursday Diablo III server maintenance is scheduled for 5AM PDT on Thursday morning, per a blue post:

We will be performing scheduled maintenance on Thursday, October 25th. Maintenance will begin at 5:00 AM PDT and is expected to last for 2 hours. During this time, all servers and many web services will be unavailable.

Thank you for your patience.

This may be bringing the minor patch 1.0.5a. Information about this showed up from a blue post on the Korean battle.net forums.

It is standard to have small patches like 1.0.5a between the larger patches. These make very small changes to the Diablo III client, usually to fix gameplay crashes. They are often accompanied by other changes server side, that are bigger than the tweaks and fixes that roll out with hotfix. At this time there aren't any published patch notes for 1.0.5a, if it is indeed coming out, but we'll be sure to post them once they're available.
