I think next time I'm considering buying a game such as Diablo or WoW I will look to alternatives.. Blizz has lost what it used to be as a gaming/service provider.

The funny thing is, everyone here will buy the next WoW or Diablo regardless of these issues.

The last phrase of the "Breaking News" says "will provide updates as they're available." Now clearly they have an idea of what the problem is and the steps they are taking to correct the issue so why will they not post some sort of information for us? This is whats burns me.

So is anyone else getting error 359 now as well added to the list of the others?

Servers are definitely up.
I can log in with one account, but I can't with another.
From the same computer and same D3 login screen.
One has an authenticator, the other doesn't.
So looks like their problem is the authenticator.


I took off my authenticator to try this theory people have: it did not work for me.

I was about to do that. Thanks for saving me the trouble.

This is ridiculous though. 3+ hours and nothing more than "[we] will provide updates"?

"Dear community,
We are still experiencing problems with the authentication server. We are working on it, but unfortunately it is not resolved yet. Best case scenario, you should be able to log in within an hour. Worst case scenario, it will not be fixed until Monday morning. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience."

I typed that just to see how long it would take to give us any sort of update. It only took 1 minute and 19 seconds to type. How hard is it to give an update to a problem that you said you'd give updates to?
