Diablo 3 open beta test population capped while servers are fixed

Gamers excited about Diablo 3’s open beta test weekend are now frustrated at not being able to log-in. According to Blizzard, this is actually a good thing as they have already discovered problems with their servers and this “stress test” was meant for that purpose. However, gamers are less happy about the results.

Blizzard announced earlier that a population cap had been placed on the servers because of issues that needed immediate attention. Players can expect an Error 37 code when trying to log-in. However, if gamers are receiving an Error 3003, then changing their region under options to “The Americas” should fix that code.

Blizzards community manager Bashiok had this to say: “We’ve temporarily capped Diablo 3 open beta concurrency until we can address some stability issues…This is a stress test, and issues are expected. You may have trouble logging in due to the sheer number of other people attempting the same.”

Despite the seemingly dire warning from Bashiok he did stress the fact that they were working hard to sort out the problems and that the servers are meant to handle hundreds of more players than they currently are.

The open beta test will continue until Monday, April 23rd at 10:00 am PDT. This should allow Blizzard ample time to correct any server problems and lift the cap on server populations.
