Playing on the US server from Australia. Was disconnected when bidding on things in the auction house to be welcomed by this message. Have restarted the computer and modem to achieve no resolution. My internet is working perfectly fine to do anything else (including writing this thread) so don't tell me its my internet. Server status for the 'Americas' is currently all available. What's the go? Is anyone else experiencing this?
EDIT: Login error message that occurs after leaving the game client up for a while changes to simply: "You have been disconnected from the Battle.net service."
EDIT2: Server page is now displaying that it's down for the US. However, still no explanation or ETA on expected uptime.
EDIT3: As far as i can assume before a blue comments on the matter, there are obviously many problems surrounding the AH and missing items/gold, the down period may very well be due to hotfixing these issues.
EDIT4: Update on issue; login error now displays "The Battle.net server is down for maintenance. Please check the [Server Status] page for more information (Error 33)"
So, it's officially maintenance and no ETA still as of this update.
EDIT5: The 'Breaking News' segment of game client now reads "We're currently working to resolve an issue affecting the auction house, and may restart the service to help in addressing it. If you're disconnected or unable to log in, please try again soon. Thank you for your patience." I hate that they added that patience part; seeing as i wouldn't have had to use all my patience up for the last 6 hours if they had of informed us much sooner.
EDIT6: Server status is back up and i've logged in successfully.
03/07/2012 13:29Posted by FletcherDoes it have anything to do with the maintenance message in the bottom right of the screen? Maybe the server page isn't accurate? :/
I doubt this, one would think they would have the server page synced with the update to reflect its status if they had a planned update. Though i wouldn't put anything past Blizzard. It may be a server restart of something, but it would be nice if we could have some form of warning about this kind of thing if it is. Would be nice if a blue could post on this to update us on what's happening. Doesn't seem like its a localised issue.
Figured all the game hick-ups where prolly solved by now - guess I was wrong!
Check server status - Check - up and running!
Check your internet connection - Check - I did not post this from my imaginary typewriter!
Note is also says, in breaking news
We will be performing scheduled maintenance beginning on Wednesday July 4, at 5:00am CEST
