Diablo® III

Stuck at "Retrieving Hero List..."

(Locked)

Hey man, you can't expect Blizzard to get all these server things sorted out. It's not like they have any experience running large MMO games at all.


And we ask to be allowed to play Diablo 3. When you make that possible, I promise we'll stop making threads about it.


There is something VERY wrong when we have to ask permission to play the game we already shelled out 60 dollars for. I'm sorry, I bought the game, I own the game, I'd like to play the game when I wish to. This is no different then buying a car and being told by the manufacturer you can't drive it at these times. This is ridiculous.


And if you're Aussie, you couldn't play at all after 8pm last night.

Confirmed Fix:

1) Have an authenticator. Sorry but this method requires one.
2) Disable authenticator bypass in Security Options under your Battle.net account.
3) Sign into World of Warcraft with authenticator, log into a level 85 ALLIANCE character. Then travel to Stormwind and alt-tab out of the game.
4) Sign into Starcraft 2 with authenticator, and complete the single player campaign in under an hour. Leave alt-tabbed after the end cinematic.
5) Open Diablo 3, and alt-tab back out.
6) Close Starcraft 2 through task manager. You have to end process you can't just X it out.
7) Close World of Warcraft through task manager.
8) Log into Diablo 3 with authenticator. You will get past the retrieving hero list.

Still says up and green. "On" does not mean "Up"


This. You have to do more than make sure all the blinky lights are on, children...
