    Battlenet Login Help - 503

    I'm getting a 'Too many attempts - 503' message. My first time attempting to login in 5 months. Trying to reactivate my account :3 I have an authenticator, nothing has changed with it. What is the wait time for this message to reset?

    Alright alright OP, seems the automated system has deemed you a hacker therefor it's locked for a few as a first safe guard

    This should clear in about 30 mins to an hour

    If you wish to be faster to unlock your accout, Call them

    PM me if you have anymore questions and have a nice day

    I have a similar issue .. it also refuses to let me on .. same 503 error but I also get a redirect never completing error too.. not sure whats up with B net.

    I have an authenticator, changed my password, cleared cache and cookies but no go.

    guess Ill wait and see if it clears.

    aren't the battle.net sites and account management down for maintenance due to patch 4.2 ?

    Ditto for me, too. First attempt, given 503. I was worried I might've gotten banned, but then realized you are told you are banned if you are banned.

    Looks like a problem with the login system if so many people are getting hit with the same error. It'll probably be fixed by morning.

    I admit, for a while I thought some hacker was trying to brute force the authenticator or something...
    Roleplaying, hardcore Raiding, running LFR on the occasional weekend, PvPing, rolling alts, achievement hunting, pet battling, or just enacting an endless series of whims, I don't care how you play WoW. Just as long as you have fun doing it.

    Alright, from the sources and information I've gotten

    Since this is a patch and such. there servers are quite overload and are wonky at the moment mainly there webside of account management and such

    So lets see.... I'll suggest the whole waiting for a bit until things have calmed down if things continue to persist I'll continue to look through this

    Forgive me everyone

    The login servers are quite... well you know rusty!
