Diablo 2 Resurrected character deleted and progress gone - how to bring back

Have you just started playing Diablo 2 Resurrected and has your character disappeared? While it might seem alarming but there's an easy solution on how to fix this.
In Diablo 2 Resurrected, your characters are your bread and butter. At first glance, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the game, this might look like a game about all kinds of different things, but at its core, it's really about investing countless hours in developing your favourite build.

Diablo 2 is a pioneer of character-oriented games, in which the main focus of the gameplay is to invest more time in calculating builds for your perfect character, rather than actually playing the game (not really but close).

Diablo 2 veterans treat their characters like their pets and proudly show them off by wearing them as proof of their achievements and commitment to the game. This is why it hurts even if you lose your low-level character, which seems to be happening to many Diablo 2 Resurrected players at present.

So, what should you do if your Diablo 2 Resurrected character progress is gone and how can you bring it back?

Shortly after Diablo 2 Resurrected launched, players were reporting numerous issues, one of which included their characters disappearing from the game.

Players reported that their characters were disappearing under several circumstances, including after the game crashed; when they logged into the game; or even whilst they were still playing Diablo 2 Resurrected!

While this might sound serious, it is most likely just a problem with the game not being synchronized with the servers correctly, and your characters will eventually reappear.

These are solutions currently reported to bring back deleted characters:

  • Restart Battle.net
  • Log in and out of Battle.net
  • Log in and out inside the game
  • Change regions (from Europe to Asia for example) then log back in
  • Create a brand new character and older might come back

Any of these solutions should help to bring back your apparently deleted characters. If not, keep in mind that this is most probably a server issue, therefore, the characters will likely reappear when Battle.net servers become more stable and your game client synchronizes with them.
