Error 10017: Error when creating the game?

I'm having a similar issue too, cant log in at all. After I click the D3 icon the launcher pops up and it shows this:

Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

I cant even get to the login screen to try and log in? But I was playing just fine earlier today. Though I have had increasing lag issues the last couple of months. Not sure what the heck is going on, and looks like blizz either doesnt realize theres a problem, or they are just not talking.

Just one more reason I prefer off-line games to on-line ones. Far less hassle.

Getting "Error creating your own party" on Euro server, Asia and US are working fine.
Tried deleting cache, not helped.
Can't change character, as soon as login ends error pops up and back to login.

Error 10017 for me as well, and this thread seems to say that you just have to wait. Sucks.

I have been receiving this error for weeks. Nothing I do fixes this issue. I just end up waiting for untold amounts of time before I can login again. This doesn't even begin to describe the other disconnect errors that I have been receiving....RIDICULOUS!!!!
