last night, I had this problem as they clumsily patched NA. I was able to play in EU this morning (NA time), BUT, I get home this evening, and what to my surprise, there is ANOTHER patch...I am able to play my NA account, but getting this stupid loop when I try to play my EU account. Apparently, blizzard says they are AWARE of NA players trying to play on EU servers and getting this garbage TWO DAYS AGO, but they seem to be doing very much about it.
I am not being dramatic here; Blizzard, get your act together or I am getting my 60$ back and never buying your products again.

This is 100% due to the fact that Blizzard staggers their patching among the regions. EU servers don't have the 9858 build on them yet, so your 9858 client can't be played there until Blizzard updates it. I agree that this system is an epic failure for anyone who plays on a server outside the region they live in. Blizzard probably just doesn't give a damn because the % of people who do that is relatively low.
oh great now we have to wait for them to update the server? well might as well go sign my willl and stuff..i'll more then likely be dead before they update it might take eons..lol (joking)
