Diablo III’s Auction House Taken Down for ‘Emergency Maintenance’

Blizzard just said that because of “issues affecting auction processing and payment delivery,” Diablo III’s auction house has been taken down “for urgent maintenance,” and it’ll be out of action for at least 5 hours, to 12:30 a.m. EDT on Nov. 2.

Last night, Blizzard’s authentication service encountered problems with players connecting to Battle.net across Diablo III, StarCraft II and World of Warcraft. Authentication problems continued into this morning, and earlier this evening Blizzard acknowledged that players were experiencing payment delays from the real money auction house, seeming to connect the two matters.

    Who cares?

    Wont know for around 23 days. Oh wait thata sony

      The awesome free games *just* made up for it.

      Oh hey, a there's a dead horse over here. Have a stick!

      And yet this is exactly how the Sony saga started out, the service being taken down for emergency maintenance. What's that old saying, those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    people still play D3????

      You're still playing torchlight?

    I read "Diablo III’s Auction House Taken Down" and for a split second got excited and considered playing the game again... then I read the last bit and realised my dreams had been shattered...

      You know you could get the same effect of it being removed if you just didn't use it right?
