    Me neither :wtf:. Although I think I'm a little better off then you Auto, did some BW earlier today with no trouble. When I click on Battle.net inside of D2 it just sits there on the "Searching for Fastest Server" screen then comes back and says I can't connect. :mad:

    I got on okay about an hour ago, but a few minutes ago, when I went to leave a game it just sat on the "Please Wait" screen for a few minutes, so I hit cancel, now D2's in the background just doing nothing. They definately have some connectivity problems and I'm guessing that a bunch of their servers are down so they're only at a fraction of max capacity. I hope they have it fixed tonight too 'cause my S/S barb is 35 now and I wanna play with some clannies. Btw, does anyone have any imbueable ornates that I could trade an imbueable lance for (or just have :))?

    "connecting to fastest server" for me as well, all day long. I suppose it is just as well, I had other things to do earlier.
    Now I'm done and I want to play :(

    Suppose I could make an open necro and get used to the minion thing.

    Realm Status Update: Battle.net/Realm/Web Site Update

    We have become aware of the fact that an individual or group has initiated a server attack on both Battle.net and Blizzard's web site. As a result of this illegal activity, many of our customers are having difficulty logging on to the Battle.net game service and accessing Blizzard's web pages. We are in the midst of implementing a solution, but we wanted to let you know that the situation is a direct result of external attacks on our servers, and not a problem with Battle.net's stability.

    The FBI and certain European law enforcement agencies have been notified, and we are working in conjunction with them to identify the individual. Attacks on our servers will not be tolerated, and Blizzard fully intends to prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law.

    If you have any information about the above activity, please email hacks@blizzard.com.

    Thank you for your patience. We will post updates on the status of the servers as more information becomes available.

    -Blizzard Entertainment

    Bah, probably some sad 12 year old on his 386 who's upset because he wasn't chosen as a D2X beta tester.


    Or someone who plays those crappy online games that you have to pay monthly fees for, what are they called again?

    just the right place at apparently the right time. I almost added a new thread regarding the new info added to D2.net's suffix and prefixes page as well, but had to take off. Interesting stuff there.
