I wanted to try the multiplayer today, but the problem is: Battle.Net is a mess. As soon as I enter BNET, it's simply impossible to distinguish a single word - but strangely, the rest of the interface looks fine. Does anybody have the same problem?

The text is rendered on top of the graphics by Windows using Times New Roman, so if there are any issues with that on your system then that would be the issue. On top of that Diablo does a poor job of communicating where to render things.

Where you looking to play with friends or strangers?

let's you play multiplayer easier than ever, only host has to port forward and next version will have zerotier support, which will let you play with strangers with literally 0 port forwarding, games will be just a few clicks away :)

The point was to play with strangers, and try the multiplayer aspect of the game which totally eluded me back in the days.

I have no idea with Windows would fail to display Times New Roman - I'm a writer, so Windows fonts certainly wasn't the aera where I was expecting to find problems.
Some app overlay interrupt game window. Known bug. Also there is some apps that looks like no overlay - but they did interrupt games windows. GOG support site mention LogiOptions.exe (or any others tools from mouse\KB\gamepads drivers+tools packages)
