ugh…Diablo III was released yesterday, and apparently Blizzard and Activision have not been able to keep the servers activated much during that time, due to “several issues”. Unfortunately, almost every person on the planet bought this game, so as you can imagine, there are more than a few pissy folk. According to Blizzard the servers were taken down at 10:22 AM PT for an hour, then from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM, then from 2:15 PM PT until 3:30 PM. However, these times contradict hundreds of players posting on the site’s forums, that they have been unable to play for hours at a time.
Get your shit together, Blizzard, seriously…Guild Wars 2 comes out soon, and Elder Scrolls online has been announced…You are not the only hen in the house anymore. The game’s current rankings at Metacritic are just sad, presumably due to the server issue.
Hopefully Blizzard gets this shit worked out.
