Diablo® III

How many more hours?

Has maintenance been extended? I cannot locate a post on BLIZZARDS website regarding this. Why should I have to find out on twitter a program i don't even use. Perhaps a little less tweeting and a little more posting on your website would have an impact on the frustrations of your player base.

It's posted right in the game...

The Breaking News when you open D3, SC2 or WoW will all be updated with the latest information. Not sure why it's not on the website, but it's plenty official.

StressTest,

Senseless posts about the same topic over and over will be locked and/or deleted. This one is remaining open to let people vent but when they cross the line, their posts will be deleted and/or the user will lose their posting priviliges.

If you haven't already, please read the forum posting rules and guidelines in the sticky post we have at the top of the forum.


I get it, it's blizzard who does not.

Tuesday is a PR disaster for blizzard and it has been for 8 years. I understand that you don't want the forums to blow up with the same posts over and over but you would think by now Blizzard would just schedule a 12 hour maintenance instead of extending a 6 hour maintenance over and over again, annoying fans week after week.

I remember when Warcraft was in it's infancy (less than two years) Blizzard was testing live maintenance that wouldn't disrupt player experience.

What happened to that? It HONESTLY feels like blizzard no longer cares how long the maintenance takes because every week it gets extended like it is not big deal over and over.

Compensation for what? You purchased on online-only game that has been having Tuesday maintenance for nearly a decade. You don't pay monthly.

Also, it's a video game.

10 years of running the biggest MMO in the world and they still can't do a simple maintenance on a server without screwing it up on a game that isn't even an MMO. Its no wonder Vivendi wants to sell their stake.

Can't log in right now either, Did Mythic staff take over? ..kidding. There must be a pain in the !@# issue preventing maintenance from going smoothly.

Reading the blue posts and they all keep saying "check the status page". Well status page says AH is down but Game Server is up, meanwhile I can't log in to either 'cause it says the whole thing is down. While you are picking up your copy of "maintaining servers for dummies" bliz, you might want to teach your staff to refer us to a page that actually has useful information. K thx.

Maintenance was completed, people were playing, issues arose (AH I believe), emergency maintenance is now underway to correct those issues. It's listed in the Breaking News on the login screen.

Yeah, that pain in the as* issue is a boardroom full of shareholders who decide to not budget enough into the technical side. Obviously just guessing, but there's no way you can go 6 or so years without improving the same process.

It now says "Emergency Maintenance" and hoping for 16:00pm pst (7 pm est). Instead of complaining I'm going with positive reinforcement and encouragement: C'mon Blizz!! You can DO EET!!!

dont worry. They will be done soon but in return we will get more lag than we already have. I blame AH/rmah for all unnecessary updates that cause all these issues. I miss the trading from diablo 2....
