It'll be released the day after my last Final exam, so it's gonna be a hellish mouse-clicking introduction to summer for me. I just hope that it doesn't disappoint. I've been waiting 10+ years and I've had it on preorder since January, so this game better deliver the goods!

I'll be standing in line as well because all my Blizzard games are hard copies. There's just something about actually having the game in my hands...

I'll wait for reviews since I'm not really a fan of RMAH and needing constant internet connection to play.

I preordered Torchlight 2 though. Tongue

Epic fail on Blizzard for a shite-filled Diablo 3 launch. Errors, disconnections, and just overall frustration for everyone. Took them 10+ years to get it done, and they still dropped the ball. So much for that whole online-only business huh? And to think that they run WoW and still can't make it work. Gratz Blizz, you've officially F'ed up.

That's to be expected. Considering MOST gamers around the world are looking forward to it. That's why I didn't rushed things and waited for a bit before playing. Almost every online game I played had these problems during their early stages.

I expected issues as well. Any time I see a game requires online connectivity and is hugely popular I prepare myself for at least a day of not being able to run it Happy

I did see a screenshot floating around facebook though of a group of Korean players who had beaten Diablo just a few hours after launch lol

That's true. But you also have to consider the fact that they already had a good estimate on the number of people logging in at a unified opening time (seriously, what were they thinking?). They even bragged about having enough servers available to handle the strain of a global launch. It's actually funny to think that the company who runs the biggest and most successful MMORPG of all time would have connection issues.

They've had all this time to work out the kinks, constantly delaying the release date and such, yet the game is still plagued with bugs. Everyone was expecting a finished product that they could at least play, but you can barely even get a game started because of all the errors. It's just shameful considering they messed up the launch of such a high profile title.

I've played all the WoW xpacs at launch. They all went smoothly, even Cataclysm. Maybe a bit of a queue time, but nothing game-breaking. This is the first time I've ever seen Blizz screw things up. If only they weren't so defensive of their stupid decisions (online only, global launch time), the backlash probably wouldn't have been as bad as this.

But nope, instead we all just got Chuck Testa'd.

@320x200: Yeah, I feel for all the players in Asia. Not only did they have to wait for PST to reach 0000 with the game and everything already installed, but I heard that they couldn't even get past the log-in screens!

Some of my friends on the East Coast were royally pissed. They stayed up till 3AM, only to nerdrage throughout the night. I believe a lot of pencil lead was broken during their Final.

I was one of the lucky people to be able to log in last night at 12:01 am and create my character and everything.

Unfortunately, even with blizzard knowing the amount of people that were to log in at that time, all those attempts to do so at the same time is what crashes the servers.

This morning, however, I was able to log in with no problem and no errors, due to the fact that the amount of people trying to log in at the same time is significantly lesser than the minute the servers were open.

Also note, this happens to almost every single online game that is being expected by an audience, happened to GW2 as well.

Edit: add me, im Lale on it, im a demon hunter Tongue

Awww Morpheus. No need to marginalize the facts into a single sentence. Just the same...been there, quite lovely.

@Lale: Awesome! I'm taking it that the ones with the digital downloads were the ones who were lucky enough to get in. So much for the hard copy being a better choice, eh? All I really got out of it was a poster and a night full of frustration.

But yeah, that's my point. They promised goods which were guaranteed to work. I understand what happens during a launch, been through many of them. It's just a surprise that a company like Blizz, with the reputation it has, actually messed up this bad for once. It's a first. It didn't happen with WoW and its xpacs, that's why so many people are up in arms.

A demon hunter! I wanted to roll a demon hunter at first too, but the monk has been looking more and more interesting. I'll see what happens when I actually get in. It's been under "Emergency Maintenance" ever since I started trying to log in. Should be up pretty soon though...

Just been on and no problems or what-so-ever at all. Had a bit trouble logging in earlier due to the fact that it was "peak" hour I suppose.

EDIT: There's no other way to put it really. Instead of being frustrated and whine, why just chill down. Things will get better. It's only been up for roughly 24hrs.

^^ Yeah that would be awesome..... maybe make our own SH clan lolol xD

I still plan to get the game (if only I can get it really cheap since it's online only) though I may get it around the end of the month since I'm busy atm..... or trade some really old games and try to get it cheap that way.

The game is very different from Diablo 2. I felt they tried to make it easier. (or simpler, not sure of the right word)

Story was kinda sort, some surprises

If anyone plays on the North American server, add SinOverCos#1247

I've been playing non-stop for the past 2 weeks. I'm already a level 60 Barbarian doing Act 3 Inferno.

The only thing I'd have to say is the auction house is really annoying and needs some more work into fixing!
