"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?


You had my hopes up that we were actually getting an update to what the hell is going on. Today is my one free day for a week and I was looking forward to spending a day relaxing and playing... I got kicked from an uber boss run this morning with Error 3006 and haven't been able to log in since. It has been more than five hours now, and this is kind of getting me mad. It is alternating between Errors 3006 and 73. An update would be very much appreciated from someone on Blizzard's end, as I paid for this game and enjoy being able to play it.

I am going to be honest and say that your customer service is severely lacking, Blizzard. I know it is Saturday, but for the love of all things good and green, give me some information on why I am unable to play on my day off.

If it actually IS resolved within the hour, you will have my kudos and my thanks... Lets make something happen.

Regards from New York,
Ryan

If it makes you feel any better, I was actually playing, midgame, in a fight, when I was suddenly disconnected with "battle.net service unavailable", and then couldn't get BACK on. That was nearly 6 hours ago now.

Statements like this make me so weary to play my hardcore characters. Which is why my highest is level 33. I rarely play it during the day and particularly on weekends in case servers have issues. So far I have avoided death but I know it will happen no matter how careful and slow I am in gearing appropriately....all due to a network issue with Blizzard's servers.

We should be able to play hardcore offline to be honest. Something needs to change.

I completely agree, we never had issues with the old diablo, dont get me wrong the new one is great but they should make a choice to make it online and offline.

Battlestar Galactica if you haven't watched it already!
Dude, been through both BSGs, Farscape, and Lexx. Our corporate masters need to put more entertaining SciFi on NetFlix!

Unsure if this helps blizz at all.
If I have remember authenticator on in bnet security options, then I get error 73 mostly and some 3006.
If I make it ask for authenticator on every login attempt then I seemed to only get error 3006, 3005 but never 73...

In the D3Debug.text it's just hanging on:
BnetService::SelectAvailableGameAccountEvent waiting for more presence, timeElapsed=x...

It found the game accounts associated to bnet account.
It is failing to select the game account.
How about looking into it blizzard?

Edit: Just like most of you I've been tryin' to log back in since 9 AM est this morning. I made sure I didn't have plans today to try and power level paragon levels with a buddy of mine, and we both got kicked off -_- Too bad my raid tonight isn't till 8 to give me something else to do.

*peers outside and hisses* Nope. Sun is too bright for me to go out.

No, backups cost a lot. This doesn't cost much comparatively.
