2 March 2013 - Diablo 3 Down for Maintenance

Aus/NZ General Discussion
Okay so me and my friends just all got together like geeks to play diablo and now its down for maintenance...... Why and for how long? Can someone help.
Blizzard didn't give notice. Only page they refer to when trying to log in is the server status site

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/status

But nothing else. It would be no fun actually knowing when the game can be resumed.
Kind of strange for a Saturday night as well

hope a CM responds

You guys playing on the Americas server as well?
No idea how long it will take, hopefully this update is only a minor one.
America server seems to be the default one for Aussies. Not sure why we don't go via the Asian one, in theory that would be quicker. I wish it was possible to switch everything across to the Asian server when the American one is down for maintenance...
the server status on the forum doesnt have one with today's date. Man, is saturday, and no warning........
not happy jan.
I need clicky!, clicky!

I'm pretty sure the server status page is current.

Really not sure about why they would update on the weekend, when most people would have time to play.
been looking forward to tonight all week. now this. and no blue post. i guess i spend my saturday night hitting refresh on the server status page??? or maybe a blue post could give some indication so i don't lose my whole night?

i meant here azura, it is where they usually tell us of maintenance, usually a few days in advance, sometimes a few hours after they start.
Ive actually had the patch update itself, it seems that im now waiting on the sever to refresh itself.
maybe i do need to buy a PS3 when D3 comes out on there....... Just for the offline playing.

Ah, got ya. I was just looking at this one:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/status

But why on earth would they update today if there is one scheduled for Tuesday?????
clearly something bad has happened...
some stoopid guy thought a 2 looks like an inverted 5 and scheduled the maint wrong........ maybe.
what time is it in blizz HQ? maybe no one would be there to solve this....... anyone wanna call them up?
It looks like this was some kind of emergency maint, they didn't seem to inform anyone.

I can only assume(hope) this is to fix the error when reporting spammers which to me makes sense to release it before the weekend(in the US) but still no notice at all is odd even for blizz they normally give an hour or 2.

Blizz have techs working 24 hours monitoring all 3 games, but techs do not post on the forums. It's being worked on but very unlikely we will see a post.
