so couldnt log in last night server to full and today i try and get this................hhhhhmmmm did anyone not beta test this game? Did they not try to work out stuff before going live ? I mean blizz isnt new to mmo's so how could we get 100 errors the first day? Anyhow I guess I will just try again and again and again and again......

If theres one thing I know about a technical roll out it doesnt matter if you spend 10 years and millions of dollars preparing for that one moment, the second you go 'live' with actual user interaction everything can and will go wrong and all you can do is pray and hope its a couple small things.
Getting it too. Started playing at around 5:30am PST, stopped about 90 minutes ago, and now can't get in.
I have this as well.
Same error started about 1000 PST.
its launch day 10 hours in you need to cut them some slack... There are millions playing worldwide right now there are bound to be hitches for the next couple days.
Guys...there's a post in game that says servers will be down for an hour for emergency maintenance. Don't know when that hour started though
Well i want to thank blizzard, what a nice launch! at 3h01h46 my witch doctor was born ^^

3h01h46 - start
7h00h00 - 1h pause
12h30h00 - 30min pause

so i got 7h40 gametime with only 5-6 lag of 1sec ^^

at my return error 317002, so now i go sleep 1hrs !

Fix it fast ! TY !
I haven't even got to play at all yet.. Last night every time I tried logging in it said bnet was down.. then i tried a few hours later and it said the servers were busy.. then I tried again this morning, hoping I would finally get to play, then I get this error right when I click "start game"...

geez people stop raging, it's day one, this happens with every game.. expecting a perfect launch is just ignorant.

No, this does not happen on every game. so, excuse us for expecting even a single player game to work properly. I can name half a dozen diablo-clones that had fully working single player on release day.

to be accurate, this is only happening to games "nowadays" >>;

blizz used to be about pure quality which is why its forgiveable to give them alot of time on development but on release its as buggy as an elder scrolls game and im disappointed.

Either ways, im getting the same error, everything was going well, i played to act 2 then i just upgraded my annual pass Diablo 3 to Collector's edition. i logged out and could not log back in thanks to this error.

Ummm I don't know if you remember, but Diablo 2 servers were down most of the time during the first couple days. The 'bugs' you are referring to are the servers because millions of people are playing and logging on and putting stuff on the AH. not the game, let Blizzard fix their !@#$ and quit complaining.

I'm in this boat as well. Hope they fix soon.
This error is related to the maintenance currently being done. We'll update the announcement thread in an hour.

Y exactly did they make it required to be connected to battlenet to play single player? So stupid..

The "official" reasons were stupid - "if we have offline single player, some players will make characters and then want to take them online later only to find out they can't, which makes them sad. To avoid that 'problem', we'll just make it so you can't play offline single player at all."

The "real" reasons are twofold: to reduce piracy, and to make it so that you are always connected to the real-money auction house, that you might be tempted and Blizzard might get a cut of the profit if you buy something.
I was playing just fine since launch. I went to school to take a final, logged back in and got the error 317002.

----Lesson: I should have stayed home. School is for losers if it cuts in Diablo time.
