That is the error you get anytime the servers are not available for play. In this case it is because the US servers do not go live until 12am Pacific Daylight time (3am Eastern)

They should have made it available for you to play when your time zone was at 12:01. So now i have to wait tell 3 Am to play a game everybody else is already playing because of the time zones. That is a bunch of crudddddd.

you should have known better in the first place, wow, sc2, and all battlenet maintenance times are PDT, it said it on the websites, PDT, so just chill out and relax, get some sleep or something people, the game will release on time, you currently have just over and hour and 40 minutes to go

They were extremely specific and communicated the launch time long ago. It has been posted on the web site, on the forums, in game announcements, in the Launch Day Prep guide, etc. If you missed it then it was not because Bliz did not make the information available everywhere.
