Diablo 3, and its fans, have been ping-ponging between smooth sailing and outage outrage since the game's launch yesterday. The official list of common errors for the game still includes an error code 37 for busy servers. Fortunately, Blizzard has a website set up to deliver, if not stable gaming, then at least a glimpse of what you can expect when you try to sign in.

The server status page shows whether the game servers for the Americas, Europe and Asia are up or down and also gives a rundown of the statuses for the various auction houses around the world.

A couple of spot checks this morning showed that the server status page, which shows all game servers up right now, seems to be accurate. We'll see how they do reporting outages over the days to come.

Of course the status page doesn't mean you'll find it easier to get into the game, but at least it will save you the time spent fruitlessly trying to log on when a server is down.

Of the remaining common error codes all but a few seem to be resolved in North America. Meanwhile Europe, Korea and Taiwan all seem to be struggling with their own unique problems.

The full rundown of common error codes can be found here. A list of other known issues are located over here. Both are impressively long lists.
