At 02:00 PST, the servers will be shut down and all games currently in progress will end in a draw and stats will not be recorded. We estimate the battlegrounds will be unavailable for 6 hours.

    We're on the final step of the checklist before Dannamoth and I sweep to make sure everything's ready. We've already popped the patch, so then it's just opening the floodgates .

    Oh no, you've found me out . It's secretly in my best interests to raise player's hopes just to dash them shortly thereafter. I feed on your tears.

    Man I am going to be crucified if a major issue pops up <_<.
  • Should be about 8 more minutes.
  • Enjoy!

    It might take a few minutes to propagate out to everyone, but the floodgates are open and people are logging in.
  • We are throttling people in now - your launcher may say unavailable for a bit as we ramp up the login queue. We do this gently to ensure that the platform doesn't have issues coming from a standing start. If you still see Unavailable or Busy, that should self-resolve in just a few minutes .

    I have a morbid fascination with that word, no idea why. Love it .
  • You may see an empty friends list shortly after the servers come up, the chat server takes the longest to fully warm up. EDIT: This should not self-resolve, you'll actually need to relog for this. We are working on improving this behavior.
