Most of you will probably remember a little demon that plagued your Monday night Diablo 3 launch experience named “Error 37.” Our own Gary Gannon, Mike Schaffnit and Mike B. do. They had to wait about two hours to log into D3 for the live Gameplay stream.
Well, Blizzard wants you to know they feel pretty bad about it. They’ve released a statement saying that “despite very aggressive projections” they did not go far enough in preparing for the game. They have also stated that they will continue to monitor performance and take measures as needed to “ensure a positive experience for everyone.”
Unfortunately, in order to do that they have also moved the release of the real-money auction house back. They haven’t set a date for it, but they want to make sure everything runs properly before adding that in.
Blizzard finished by saying: “We sincerely regret that your crusade to bring down the Lord of Terror was thwarted not by mobs or demons, but by mortal infrastructure.”
