Sorry about the issues logging into the game right now, our networking team is working to resolve the issue right now. I'm sorry but we don't have an ETA right now.
I'll let you know as soon as we have any further details.

Tip to make a few of your customers happy -
1 - give NOTICE OF DOWNTIME
2 - include estimates of length of downtime
3 - include a list of what WILL be affected and what will NOT be affected (example - current Diablo 3 games will continue, but login services are not working)
4 - BEFORE YOU miss your estimated downtime, update your customers. Bad news is usually better than NO NEWS
The game servers have reached maximum capacity. Therefore, we are forced to shut down Battle.net services momentarily to prevent additional logins which would crash the servers completely.
We will reopen Battle.net once enough people log off and give up on hope. We will also try to optimize the servers and make them more efficient while waiting.
Furthermore, we will stop caching Achievements and Auction House during peak hours to ease the traffic and make your Game play as smooth as possible with no interruptions.
Please be aware that we will purchase additional servers once management approves our logical budget requirements. We can't operate effectively if the management keep undercutting our budget!
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.

Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
