Ok well I guess I can wait. :)

Go outside.
Thanks for the official post.

Next patch suggestion:
Change the error catch so that it tells you servers are down instead of forcing an infinite loop.

Most games that require online updates do this. Having mystery errors is helpful to no one.

ughh why not in the early morning? around 5-8 am would be perfect time for a patch....


Usually when the servers go down I am still awake (central time zone) and playing so everytime they bring the servers down I nerdrage then eventually fall asleep after an hour or two. Sometimes I'm lucky and wake up after maintenance then again sometimes I'm unlucky and I woke up 3-4 hours before it. I do agree though that earlier in the morning so that they can finish it before it becomes the afternoon for me would be nice and the fact that both WoW and Diablo 3 are down (not sure about sc2) drives me nuts since these are really the only two games I play. Why I've always hated Tuesdays but I'm guessing the reason they don't do maintenance earlier is because they don't want to have to get up at 1am in the morning or earlier on monday to do their maintenance/patching stuffs? Possibly?

Agreed. Any WoW fanatics should be use to this.

Sadly, WoW and D3 having the maintenance times coincide equals twice the nerdrage. Guess it really is the same game. :p
thank you for letting us know. Why can't the game just tell us this information instead of giving us a "Server down for maintainence until ____ time" instead of giving an error 3003 or something like that?

It is easier for most people to add or subtract the hours for their time zone. For instance, for Central Time (USA) it would be +2.

ugh i really wish someday blizzard will use some system to show my local time.... Thanks people who cleared that out! :)


Was your local education system not enough to convert to your time?

Mine never taught me what the time zone abbreviations of the united states meant, and our educational system (Sweden) is considered to be among the best in the world.

what about the fact that we could play on EU realms, and since downloading the patch we are unable to login to other regions?


After installing the patch, you've got a different version of the game than whats current in that region. You'll need to wait for maintenance to end globally if you're trying to access different regions. Once all regions are up to the same patch, you should be able to connect fine.
