Diablo® III

PTR won't Download :/

I'm having a problem installing the PTR for Diablo 3 on my battle.net client. It constantly gives me this error: BLZBNTAGT000008A4 it says its having a problem transfering files and it tells me to check my internet connection, has anyone else had this problem?

I've tried all of the solutions for what the error suggests me to do, but it won't download at all. Maybe it's not connected to the right folder? I'm not sure.. Please help!

If anyone else is having this problem, please post in this forum so all of us PTR users can get an idea of what's happening.

Having the same issue. Get the same error code (BLZBNTAGT000008A4). Have tried each fix in that same troubleshooting article with no luck. Same error every time. That had me suspicious that it might be a server-side issue, which might very well be the case if multiple people are having it.

I'm also having the same issue - Code: BLZBNTAGT000008A4

Anyone have a fix? I'd like to try out Loot/Paragon 2.0 =D

Okay, well with those comments said. It may be Blizzards servers acting up, it may be over loaded with a lot of other people downloading it. Hopefully we get some feedback about it soon.

After doing some more research, this has flared up in the past with various games and is probably a bug. Right now it's only affecting the D3 PTR, as I can download other things in the launcher.

What other things in the launcher are you attempting to download? Other Public Test Realms, or actual games themselves?

I'm gonna go ahead and guess the servers are overloaded. Blizzard did totally ninja the heck out of us with not only a loot 2.0 PTR but also RoS which was totally unexpected.

I feel the same way, especially with all the issues that seem to be occurring with the Reaper of Souls F&F beta. It just might be a huge error (or bug) that blizzard's having with their beta servers (other than hearthstone cause I have playing that perfectly fine).

So... I read the front page news again. It makes a little more sense as to why we can't download it. It's saying that the PTR will come out when the "Closed Beta" begins. So I'm assuming that its not out yet and hence why we can't download the PTR?

The closed beta is already out though. People are streaming RoS.

Edit: Never mind. I guess the F&F beta is separate from the closed beta.

The PTR has been around for at least a year now, so it doesn't make to any sense why they would close it down and re release it when the 2.0 PTR patch comes out.

That's Friends and (extended) Family. Regular closed beta is supposed to happen later on (probably sometime in December).

According to the article on the Home Page, the PTR will come up at about the same time.

The PTR is not active right now which is why it does not work. Ryaskybird has it covered quite well. You need to wait until after Closed Beta comes out in the next month or two.
