I haven't played Diablo for quite a while and returned recently to play with some friends. However I updated my install and logged on to find I had apparently been downgraded to Starter Edition. This meant I couldn't make a Hardcore character with the rest of my group.
I received the game by purchasing a year's subscription for World of Warcraft about a year and a half ago, and played D3 for about 3 months with no restrictions. Why is my account now set to Starter Edition? I'm unwilling to pay to upgrade it if I should have full access to the game as it is.
Any confirmation of the bug / fixes known? Thanks in advance.
