The solution is a simple one: you need to restart your Diablo 4 client. Unfortunately, there's no way to solve the issue in-game because it's server-side, and you need to reboot to refresh the connection. Unfortunately, this may mean that you face queue times of up to an hour while everyone's rushing to get into the Open Beta weekend.

If the error persists, you may have to play solo this weekend unless Blizzard is able to identify and fix the cause on their end and wait until June 6, 2023, when the game fully releases to play with your friends.
