The long-awaited Diablo III from Blizzard Entertainment has suffered severe technical issues upon its official launch at 12:01 a.m. earlier this morning. Thousands of angry fans took their favorite forums or social media networks to complain about the inability to connect, usually due to the now-infamous Error 37, which simply states that the game’s servers are too busy and to try again later. Now, the servers aren’t busy, they’re not even up anymore.
