Error 73 (1/12/2013)

There is a temporary outage of the Battle.net service. Please try again later. (Error 73)

This has been going on for around an hour as of now (9am PST)

I've tried ipconfig /flushdns just to see if I could pick up a different login server.

WoW working fine (and now that I'm done doing all my farms for the day, this outage is really irritating.)

I think my favorite part about this error is that the D3 status page is all green. Is it actually not possible to monitor for this error state?

I don't think its an outage. i think its just failure. (again) by buddy is able to play and log in. and we are under the same internet. Are we going to be left in the dark for this too? blizzard is really disappointing me.

Werent the servers down a few days ago for people with "trouble logging in"? i was kicked out so they could fix it.

Hey guys,

We're aware of and working on the issue that is causing the login server to display Error 73 when people are attempting to log in to the game. We current do not have an ETA for when this will be resolved but we'll provide updates as they become available to us.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Update 10:50am PST: The issue should be resolved at this time. this is a blue post if u open up your eyes

@Kage, you need to quit posting that in every thread.... That is an old (over a month) outage. Try reading dates!! You are starting to look really dumb....

What he said, and throw ignorant in for good measure. Do you really think we'd be posting saying we can not log in when we could?
