Laetzin Customer Service (16 minutes ago) We're continuing to work on the issues currently affecting the Americas region, which are resulting in failed login attempts and service issues. We have identified the issue at this time, and expect services for Diablo III to be restored at approximately 11:45 PM PDT.
Thank you for your patience
Thats 2:45 if you're east coast
That's 1:45AM PDT / 4:45AM EST if you know how to speak Blizzardese... :-)
would REALLY like to play on the day i requested off to play.
Yeah no kidding hey? Same. You know, I booked the day off thinking "it's 2012, Blizzard is making millions upon millions of dollars - they have NO EXCUSE not to execute a stable downtime-free game launch". You know? This is amateur crap. How do you have hundreds of thousands of beta testers for 8 months and then a 2-million-player open beta and not catch the issues that have arisen today? Man, I put some faith in Blizzard and they have under-delivered more than I even remotely expected.
