I can understand the frustration, some changes like the pvp is a bit lame though I do understand not being able to pk ppl.

I for one am pissed there's no ladder

whaaaaaaat? no ladder? first i heard of that. god damn.

problem with no open pk means no ironman tourneys which is a big thing for me.

Yep from what I keep hearing is no ladder, it was only in D2 to get rid of duped items. Or should I say make them worthless.

Never thought about the ironmans ... That does blow

Seven days, thirteen hours. Though for me it's more like eight days, three hours.


Anyways, they posted some prep stuff for people (This is mostly true if you bought it digitally):

For everybody else, just make sure you create your battletag before hand in case any issues crop up:

After playing the beta I am a little skeptical about some of the changes. I hope this isn't a watered down Diablo experience. But I put 1000s of hours into D1 and D2, and have been waiting for this game for the better part of the decade. Even my skepticism isn't going to prevent me from preordering. May 15th cant get here soon enough.

Does anyone know if Amazon is going to be shipping early at all (like they did with Star Wars)?

I'd like to think so, but I doubt it. There isn't an early access period for people to worry about getting cut off from.

It doesn't matter if they ship it early. Servers will not unlock until 3AM EST, so even if you were to get your copy early, you wouldn't be able to do anything with it.

The point is, if I have it on the 14th, I can have it installed on the 15th at Midnight PDT. OTherwise I have to wait on the mail on the 15th :)

True. You can pre-download it now though, regardless of whether you actually ordered through BNet or not. Granted, you wouldn't be able to play until you receive your copy, but at least you'll still be ready to go right when you get your copy on the 15th (assuming Amazon doesn't ship early).

EDIT

I went ahead and edited the OP with all the pre-download links.

by the way, according to the walkthrough the dungeon layouts are randomized

so the dungeons you see in some of the gameplay videos that were posted in this thread might look different when you are playing it yourself

Well traded in games at BB and bought a Kindle Card so I could get it off Amazon with some leftover credit and stuff. It's costing me like $10 :D with trade ins.

I am excited for the game.

Well Torchlight is made by ex Diablo devs. Diablo 3 and Torchlight are like Battlefield and CoD games. They are pretty much the same idea, just different in things so I would say you tube videos of the game, look up things and make a decision. I can't just say yes or no but if you like Torchlight, you probably will like D3.

Anyone know of any deals for this game? Im picking up a copy for my friend and would like to get one for myself as well but don't want to drop $120. I did some searching and found it for $30 at ecrater but not sure how legit that site is.

Just a quick reminder that anybody who missed creating banners in the past month has until Friday (I assume the end of Friday) to create any they missed:

What is this for? Is it a contest or something? Do you get anything special for doing it?

Only if they had employed Madhouse or other anime studio. I instantly recognized the Aeon Flux style of the short and I'm not a fan of his work TBH. Too. . .Americanized, for lack of a better word.

I agree or have sold it separately. I mean Blizzard has enough of a fanbase it can do about anything :lol:.

I agree in a sense. I would of loved the Japanese anime style better. Kinda like what they are doing with that Mass Effect Animated Movie.

What are the concerns regarding Diablo 3 being online accessible only? I've heard some angry fans lately and haven't gotten a clear answer yet. Is it just because being disconnected will be annoying? Do we know the consequences of a DC yet?
