Hello everyone,

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.

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!

In game server shut down in 3 mins


LOLOLOLOLOLOL so now they decided to piss of the people that were lucky to not get kicked out of game for no reason and disconnect EVERYONE? Can't wait to see the forums get flooded with even more abuse from even more peeved players (or should I say not-players)

Battle.net homepage works. Starcraft 2 works. I have atleast 10 friends playing right now.

Now Blizzard open those servers, so others may play aswell!!
For the people saying that there's someone else in the house playing it, its fine if you're already logged, only the login servers seem to be down.

Annoying Tip: Go and turn off your modem / router, it will log out the other people in the house and they won't be able to get back in.

Would it have made such a big different?

I mean the servers would be down anyway, forums would be flamed with angry mobs.

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


This.
I was just logged in, logged off, and can't get on again, so I would guess only the login servers are under maintenance. That would suggest that it's only a minor thing and that they should be up and running again soon.
