What the hell... these connection issues are pathetic. This isn't WoW where your every action needs to play out in front of a hundred other people. What server client interaction is there in D3 other than a periodic progress save or auction house or something?
Digital distribution comes with strings.

Got booted and then it said sorry server's too busy.

I really don't care now since I got a chance to try the game at least. Anyway I am loving this game quite a bit. The only thing I wish they had was that fucking pet from torchlight who would sell shit for you. There is way too much loot for singleplayer :lol:.

Awesome, was fighting the Spider Queen boss and the server went down, no warning or anything. At least in the Beta I got a "Server will be going offline in 5 minutes"

Lol you guys are funny ... yea it's annoying as hell, but it should more than be expected. Especially with the mass connections suddenly comming in.

Lvl 33 btw :D Just beat Skele King in Nightmare

As for the online thing, it's perfectly understandable why it went this route. Does it suck? Yes. Is it the way most games would probably have to go in order to stop most hack type issues. Sadly yes again.

Yeah, the only justifiable part of the online connection requirement (and, for some reason, the impending lag even solo?!) is that there will likely be NO cheating, duping, hacking etc. Also, the AH, dealing with real money...

I got a Starter from someone on Reddit, and played through with a monk and a wizard... very interesting. I also bought D3, but haven't opened it. I'm still undecided. The game is great and is fun, but I don't know if I could give anything beyond Nightmare a serious a go (as I'm on a laptop, and never even beat Hell in D2). And since Inferno/Hell make up the majority of the end-game... I do love the WoW dungeon feel for the bosses, and what I saw.

And it seems like they ironed out the lag over the night, too. I went from 400ish latency, to 100ish. It was surprisingly playable by myself with high pings, but it definitely showed itself in multiplayer.

Edit: I'll probably need people to play with too. I have nobody. Rhett#1105

I expect it, sure. The annoying part is there is no warning, it's just oh were booting you right now. Doesn't matter what your doing. At least if they gave you a heads up it would not be so bad.

Thanks for the handy link.

I was able to wrap up the first act right before the servers went down. My Barbarian is whooping some ass, stunning mobs of enemies and cleaving them up. I've rune'd my cleave attack with a skill that makes enemies explode upon death, so it is almost as though my Barbarian is playing with corpse explosion from D2... soooo satisfying.

Also, I know story is not what comes to mind when people think of Diablo, but I'm finding D3's story to be very satisfying. Already in Act 1 there have been some pretty fun twists, nice callbacks to the original game, and amazing cut scenes. I'm really digging it.

My friends and I finished our normal run earlier this afternoon. Through the entire thing we only got two legendary items (I got a chest-piece and my friend got a Monk helm). Started playing on Nightmare and its way more fun. Definitely challenging at times compared to normal which was pretty much a breeze. Cant wait for the servers to come back to so I can play all night again.

This. Despite the login issues and the fact that it's frustrating there is no offline singleplayer, the game is fantastic. I haven't been this overjoyed while playing a game in ages. Once they get out a few patches to address some of these issues it'll be smooth sailing.

We are in the process of performing an emergency maintenance for #D3 servers in the Americas to resolve several issues

Bedtime for me on that one....game will probably be up when I get up.

Morph - how does it feel having so much hate inside? Try an episode of Dexter to chill out to - it might take the edge off.

Its okay, you can always go play terrible League of Legends. I'd rather spam login attempts than force myself to play that drivel any longer. Have fun playing your game with a community that's made up of 98% trolls though.

Game is very good, but holy crap @ the terrible server stability / upkeep.

Blizzard should be ashamed of themselves, but I doubt they care, as long as they got people to buy the game day 1. How can one of the most resourceful, most money-making, and veteran developer release D3 without enough servers?

They completely screwed this launch up. It's worse than most MMORPG launches and D3 isn't even a MMO. So frustrating...

Blizzard knows how to make phenomenal games. WoW to this day is still one of my favorite games of all time. SC II is great, and D3 is shaping up to be another phenomenal game (well once I can really get into it after the login problems).

I think for me, I am not mad that the D3 servers are fucked. Just kinda like facepalming because they have had how many years of WoW server maintenance, lol.

Go to the Euro servers. I'm actually getting a better ping there (~120) than I do on the Us servers at the moment (~300).
