Not being able to login is not the real problem, it will be something stupid and relatively easy to fix.

The real problem will be that because of the incompetent way Blizzard have set their server system up, it will require a 5 hour down time as they shut everything down and restart the servers/database.

It is well into the 21st century now and Blizzard is the only company of this size that requires their entire game or site to be taken down damn time there is an update or a glitch.

Oh yeah, no doubt will have to re-authenticate everything again as well.

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: [url="http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7004403103?page=14#280"]The issue should be resolved at this time.[/url]
