Error 37, Where Are You?

Apparently, they’re on the Blizzard servers:

The Diablo 3 servers are at full capacity, preventing many from playing the game.

Players across the globe are reporting “Error 37” when trying to log in following Diablo 3’s midnight launch in the UK at 11pm last night and, just hours ago, on the West Coast.

“Due to high concurrency the login servers are currently at full capacity,” Blizzard wrote on the Battle.net forum. “This may cause delays in the login process, account pages and web services.

The best part, or worst part, depending upon whether you’re a mere observer or a customer who plunked down $60 for the game: Blizzard actually warned they weren’t going to have enough server capacity to handle their user needs in a blog post last week. And didn’t accommodate the usage spike until it happened.

(Seen via Fred Beringer tweet. I’m not a fan of the video game series. It reminds me too much of my day-to-day work.)
