Server issues tonight, SoR likely the culprit

Just a quick note this evening that there are server issues, and Blizzard is aware of them and working hard to correct them.

Many people are seeing problems when they try to log into the game or are getting stuck at the loading screen. Others are having authentication issues. Bashiok tweeted:

Due to what I assume is the intense popularity of the new SoR promo, our authentication system is in meltdown. Working on it.


As Bashiok points out, this is likely due to the new Scroll of Resurrection program. Most of these outages normally resolve themselves in a few hours, so sit tight, read the day's blue posts, and all will be well soon enough.

There are pictures of cats after the break if you really need something more.
