Diablo III was finally released today, marking the end of a lengthy 12 year wait that fans have been forced to endure. However, if you already have the game but are still reading this, you probably can't play it.
The wait continues for many as "Error 37" denies players access on launch night because servers are "at full capacity".
Blizzard has hurried to battle stations to try and launch more servers, and have even taken Battle.net offline.
"Please note that due to a high volume of traffic, login and character creation may be slower than normal," says Blizzard. "If you're unable to login to the game or create characters, please wait and try again. We've temporarily taken our Battle.net websites offline and launched more servers to accomodate for the traffic. We hope to resolve these issues as soon as possible and appreciate your patience."
This hasn't come as a total shock, as Blizzard did warn players about the dreaded error in a blog post last week. Still, that doesn't ease the pain.
