It looks like there’s a long Battle.net login queue with issues being experienced by thousands right now and this has taken both World of Warcraft and Hearthstone down today. We first received reports from Online Social Media readers, especially from those seeing Battle.net login errors with a “too busy” message.
The tables are too full for some people. One OSM reader said, “WoW and Hearthstone are not working for me and I can’t believe I am seeing a queue, just for the login alone. I am waiting for over an hour”.
We checked Battle.net at the time of writing and see a login queue lasting around 20 minutes, although one recent tweet came with the screenshot seen above. Others report much longer waits today, January 2nd 2015.
Another reader added, “Hearthstone says All tables full”. There’s other games connected to Battle.net, so if you have sign in problems with any other services then leave a comment below.

Update: Blizzard Entertainment and Battle.net has confirmed there’s problems signing in on Jan 2. They had this to say, “Login Issues – We hope to have things back to normal soon, current estimate, about 90 minutes.”
