Servers Down - Gamer Journalist
Skip to Content Servers Down is currently experiencing higher than normal traffic and it’s resulting in a queue. Users are being prompted with the following screen after attempting to launch the desktop client.

“It’s a busy day for Blizzard Services! To help everyone log in, you’ve been placed in a queue. Please leave this window open and we’ll get you in as quickly as possible.” Servers Down

The queue is caused by high login traffic and is designed to help process login attempts. It will reset you in the queue if you attempt to leave or restart the client. Follow these steps to ensure your logs you in as soon as possible:

  • Stay in the queue until it finishes. Do not leave or restart the client.
  • Enter your Blizzard account name and password correctly.
  • Enter your authenticator code promptly and correctly.
  • Accept any Terms of Use or License agreements promptly.
