Shortly after their midnight release in the U.S., Blizzard are now experiencing problems with Diablo III and its servers. Although this was to be expected with a game with such a massive following, only a few hours after midnight release, some gamers started becoming all too familiar with the term “Error 37”.
Error 37 occurs if the player’s PC is unable to connect to the server in 40 seconds. They are then told to try again later, although this is probably of little use in the way of help. Many gamers are understandably frustrated, taking to popular social network sites to let their anger be known to everyone within range.
“Due to high concurrency the login servers are currently at full capacity,” said Blizzard, “This may cause delays in the login process, account pages and web services.”
Probably not an ideal start to the game for Blizzard. Although over the next few hours, or days, they should easily have the problem resolved, and hope to bury it in the past as a minor hiccup.
