That's the thing for me, I think the takeaway will be that they (and others) can sell always-on DRM to zillions of people, rather than that they couldn't take the demand. Even if it's temporary, they couldn't provide the service/product they were selling.

Blizzard is the game company we deserve, not the one we need.

Steam community invite for me, please?

First game I've bought on launch day in a long, long time. And I haven't spoiled much of anything for myself so far - very little reading online, only watched a couple videos. I did play the beta, but since there weren't any cut scenes, I'm pretty excited to dig in and play.

I've never played multiplayer Diablo before. Anything I should know?

Dont jump in too quickly, play solo for awhile get a feel for everything. Coop often feels very fast so play through the area at your own pace first (or second).

You know, when playing in groups it was so easy to jump into a game and it was such mindless fun that the thought of which class had better group skills never crossed my mind.

Body parts, goop, blood and bits just fly everywhere in 4 player games.

In like flynn

Hilarious how posts in this thread have fallen off a cliff now that servers are up.

What kind of level gap do people think is acceptable for jumping into a game? I want to jump into a multiplayer game tonight with a new character but most people on my, currently, modest friends list are around level 10 or up.

Jump onto vent, see if there are any groups up in your range. Which is what I'm about to do.

There really isn't any fiasco here. The servers have been down for maybe 3 hours max in the middle of most of the population's work day.

I'm in and loving it. Gumbie, I wanted to be your friend, but it says you're full up on friends. The worst part about friends is not clicking on your achievements so as to not spoil anything.

So people are currently playing? I've installed it, but the Login button stays grayed out when I put in my username and password.

Deadly reach monk skill is so awesome looking

Your username is your email - just in case. My login button didn't light up until I typed an @ symbol. And for the record, I was thinking it was just cragmyre, not my full email too

Thanks. Confusing wording- especially after I had just created a new battle.net "name".

We can all have our own opinions about it, but you seem to have forgotten about last night, etc. The game may have been playable less than half the time since release. Again, if you don't call that a fiasco, no problem, but we're talking about the totality of the launch.

That's correct

So ChrisLTD and I played through starter edition content, since for some reason my standard edition key didn't take. Turns out it's only for the Americas servers, if I log off and switch to European my account acknowledges that I'm paid up. Opened a support ticket. Bets on how long it'll be for a response?

Oh my is the Collector's Edition box huge. Time to install this bad boy and get down to business.

EDIT: I think you could get high off the new game smell contained within.

Doh. That's what I get for multitasking.

Done.

Okay, so I ran a bit in solo mode, then joined Staggerlee and Stwok's excellent game. But... Suppose I wanted to continue my single player campaign? How do I do that?

I tried logging in and changing the quest, but it told me I'd have to start a new game. Wha...? What is the proper course of action here?

Yeah, tuffalo and a couple of others that had sent me friend requests during the day now had full friends lists and I couldn't accept them.

How many friends are allowed?
