Battle.net Scheduled Maintenance
Battle.net

Blizzard will be performing maintenance to all Classic Battle.net regions on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.

Announcement: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20753167621

Blizzard will be updating the servers to address the @ symbol and its related bugs. Blizzard wishes to emphasize the following notes:

  1. No accounts were harmed during iterations on this subject.
  2. Symbols will once again be available for name creation.
  3. Any cross game profile will appear as #<realm> instead of @<realm> so that they can be handled properly by chat and friend functions*.
  4. Happy Valentine's Day. Blizzard loves you.

*Use the version of the name you see in chat to invoke chat functions.

Region Maintenance Window
USEast, USWest 9:00-10:00 AM PST
Asia 1:00-2:00 PM PST
Europe 3:00-4:00 PM PST

All classic games will be down during this maintenance period.

Editor's note: Blizzard has begun announcing this maintenance across all classic Battle.net servers via the EID_ERROR chat event with the following message sent upon entering any channel:

[Server Broadcast] Server Restart at 0900 PST (1200 EST) (https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20753167621)

In addition, banning in channels is currently broken across all games regardless if they have the @ symbol.

Classic Battle.net Illy account update
Battle.net

As of this posting, Blizzard has re-enabled the creation of illy accounts on all 4 realms of Classic Battle.net, with exception to the @ symbol.

The @ symbol has been disabled due to issues with channel banning specifically:

We mistakenly reactivated the ability to create account names with "@". Such names cannot be banned from channels and present other problems for the community.

See Blizzard's original announcement for more info.

Looks like the solution that Blizzard has moved forward with is as follows:

  • Accounts with @ symbols have been deleted and cannot be created.
  • Accounts with "illegal" symbols, with exception to @, remain intact.
  • Accounts with "illegal" symbols, with exception to @, can still be created. For instance, I just created the accounts (((Carl)))@USEast and {Carl}@USEast.

Update Feb 10, 2017: Blizzard has not actually deleted accounts with @ symbols in their name and will be preserving accounts created with them. More info in Clásico's post.

Best,
