Europe Diablo 3 Realms Down For Scheduled Maintenence Tonight


15 hours after Americas Region we will see the Patch 1.0.2 hit Europe Servers. I hope this fixes the DiabloWikiAuction House and doesn’t introduce too many new bugs 😉

We will be performing scheduled maintenance beginning on Wednesday, May 30, at 3:00 AM CET and we expect the service to be available again at approximately 11:00 AM CET. During this time the Battle.net servers and any online games will be unavailable for play.

Lots of complaints in comments from people who play on the EU servers but have US clients, or who play on EU mostly and sometimes on US… who haven’t been able to play at all since the US patch went up. Quote from MikeAR in comments:

Yes, the game client with which I installed was EN(US). And the installer applied the patch, then when starting the game, after login I got a message saying there’s a new patch, the game needs to exit and automatically install the new patch, but after exiting to Windows, if just says D3 has crashed. And this can go on and on and on. Have uninstalled and currently installing the EN(GB) version, hope this one will run. However, I don’t think such a problem should exist in the first place.

Obviously it would be nice if Bliz could address this in the future, if they’re going to keep staggering their patch downtimes by 8 or 12 hours between the Realms.

  1. As a player on the EU server I got prompted for the patch today. I now got 1.0.2 but the server don’t support it. Ruined my whole day.
    Once again blizzard shows off their stupidity

    • The patch automatically downloaded ahead of schedule and now you cant play?

    • Same here … really, really disappointed. Just got my new computer today and was very much looking forward to playing with my brother as up until now I have played on his computer, so it was either me solo or him solo. As a software developer myself, I cannot for the life of me understand Blizzard’s negligence and disrespect to its loyal player base.

    • Well, probably you have the American version. Thats the problem. The EU patch is not available for download yet.

    • Please explain how this is Blizzard showing stupidity when YOU screwed up? 😉

      • I am on America’s version 1.0.1.9558 and it says the game is up to date.  Connects to b.net then says there is a new patch, the game will now close and apply patch automatically. Then takes me back to launcher screen.

        This is a known issue – patch loop and there is nothing you can do about it until the US patches at which point you can actually download the patch.

        I bought the UK version but take advantage of the so-called global play feature and play on the US. Thankfully I have a char on Europe too so I can play when global play is not available.

        • When you have both American and European version of the game you can play on any server when Global Play is not working. Also if you are stuck in the “patch loop”, you can simply edit the agent.db file with notepad to change the patch server address.

      • Oh I’m sorry my primary language only had a european client version available for download at release so I got that. Nevermind that I live basically as far away from Europe as it’s possible to get. That’s completely Blizzards fault.

        Noting that Blizzard just harped on about “global play” and never bothered to mention what would happen come patch time when they decide to patch different regions at different times.

  2. The US realms were up at about the 9 hour mark, but the AH remains down for maintenance.  Hopefully that’s a good sign and the AH will be up 100% and actually stay up later tonight!  Commodities being disabled with little or no word on the issue is the only complaint I’ve had, so hopefully this patch and AH update will finish that off.

  3. Yes, the game client with which I installed was EN(US). And the installer applied the patch, then when starting the game, after login I got a message saying there’s a new patch, the game needs to exit and automatically install the new patch, but after exiting to Windows, if just says D3 has crashed. And this can go on and on and on. Have uninstalled and currently installing the EN(GB) version, hope this one will run. However, I don’t think such a problem should exist in the first place.

  4. Did they also pulled the plug from D2 servers? Cuz I can’t connect right now =/

  5. They already announced that there is maintenance on D2 servers today.
     
    Only way you would get the patch is if you have installed the Americas client and that make your launcher connect to Americas and the patch it. Connect info is in the launcher.

  6. US servers are down again.

  7. All servers are down due to Blizzard incompetence.

  8. American servers are down… 
    No word from blizzard on this?? Is it goin back? when?
    We should all call blizzard asking why we cant play a game we all paid for… 

    Also, wheres Septar? he’s banned or dead? 

  9. Unreal…I expected issues on launch day, but this is just unacceptable. They KNEW they had a monster game on their hands and they have a little experience with a little game called WOW (so I assumed) how this is happening is beyond me.
    All I wanted was my physical dvd (of which I have 2 standard and 1 CE) and play a little solo or LAN with my son.
    Total garbage. I LOVE the game, which is why I bought it and all the oithers in the series but this online-only thing is garbage and this is why.

  10. So I tried to play earlier, around 12pm EST and the server was down for 8 hours of maintenance.  Come back now and getting error 37 and an update form 2.5 hours ago saying they are \aware of the problem.\   Unfortunately, I don’t have the luxury of planning my life around the times that the server will actually be functional. 

  11. if nothing else this game is a laugh

  12. Error 37 on my side. Servers are too busy. I’m playing on US servers

  13. I have corrupt files now that I want to patch, despite playing since launch apparently and should re-download… awesome. Anyon else getting that little message?

  14. “Diablo III is already running” << THIS -_-

  15. I had wrong region and hadn’t a clue before yesterday that i was playing on Americas region. I always wounder why i couldn’t ad my friends but now i know why 👿  The  problem is i really thought i was on Eu when im living in EU have an EU acount and i downloaded from EUs site. But obviously America was default anyway. How can America be default when im downloading it from EU, Have EU account? and living in EU This is so F%# up. So my level 37Wiz is just wasted 20h time and blizzard “cant” transfer Heros. More about this subject here http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4077738830?page=1

  16. “Scheduled” my arse, if it’s not announced in the in-game news section a day in advance it’s an emergency patch. 

  17. FGreat…servers are still down during the couple of hours I get to play after work. Two weeks after release I am regularly not allowed to play the game I’ve payed for! Nice job Bliz! And it’s online only to be blamed, of course.
