"Shipping soon". I'm ok with it arriving on Wednesday since I bet the login queues are going to be absolutely hosed tomorrow.

Could they rent/borrow other servers to handle the launch day load?

They lost a million WoW players, should have plenty of extra servers lying around.

Question: Are you guys getting error 33 if you can't log in yet or can you get to character creation and just not play?

I also get the same error. I assume you need to be logged in before you can go anywhere, character creation or otherwise.

Guess who can't find his authenticator - this guy.

Hopefully I'll be able to sneak in an hour or two before I head off to work in the morning. After that though, it won't be until late (~10pm est) until I'll finally be able to hop on. DAMN YOU VIOLIN LESSONS! *shakes fist*

EDIT: Oop, missed the post about the GWJers Against Diablo Steam group. If someone can toss me an invite, I'd appreciate it!

DOUBLE EDIT: Thanks for the invite! All set! Let's go kill some demons!

Oh no! That totally sucks! At least you have a few hours to have a breakdown and tear your house completely apart looking for it, only to realize it's in your pocket the whole time

Do we have an agreed upon method of in-game voice chat?

Quitter.

I'm gonna go with realist.

One: the servers are going to cry briefly and then die.
Two: I have to leave for work at 5.

Not worth it.

All I'm saying is if you aren't hunting down Diablo, you're letting him corrupt our children and con geriatrics out of their Social Security checks. Are you going to let him corrupt our children and con geriatrics our of their Social Security checks because you have work?

Diablo hates three things: free markets, free will, and free men.

Was missed a couple pages back on the Steam invite. Yup, I'm listed on the spreadsheet

Thanks!

So, we going to voice chat this up tonight? Vent or Mumble server?

*readies popcorn and Blizzard's Diablo 3 forum page for 12:01 PDT*

I guess I'm going to pick this up during my lunch break. Mind if you add me to the group too? Check sig for Steam profile.

It might be obvious to those here, but just in case it helps only one of you...if you downloaded the client before today, make sure you open it again and run the install as it opened today at 8:01am PDT.

I'll take an invite as well please.

I vote for vent.

Got my shipping notification! Woo!!!

I'm putting this in spoilers because it has a very minor spoiler, but everyone should read it so as to prevent some release day woes.

Don't trade your equipped shield with the

Spoiler:

Templar who joins you in Act 1.

Apparently if you do, you'll be booted from the game and will not be able to log in for a good amount of time.

So my willpower broke and I just purchased the game. Maybe see some of you online

Shipping notification came in about 15 minutes ago. I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve!

I'll take a steam group invite...

Told ya.

Have fun tonight, everyone!!! I'll be joining you in a year or so when I upgrade my macbook!

I'm installing now. I was asked to activate the game but it was a digital purchase. I don't see an activation code in the email. I believe I started the installer under a different account than I purchased the game with. Hopefully I won't have to re install or anything like that.

You won't. It's just giving you the option to create an account now. Once it's fully installed you can start the game and it will ask you to log in. The servers are not yet up so you can't do that.

I think that by activation they just meant "create a battle.net account".

2:45 to go.

Good grief I can't believe this is almost happening!

The installer is taking its sweet time!

Restart the downloader. That's what I did last night. Sped right up.

Or you'll be delayed further and this is just a clever plot to lower the amount of people logged on at release.

I think the login servers crapping out and/or just straight up refusing people (Error 37) like they're doing in the other regions where the game's already playable (sort of) will lower the amount of people logged on just fine.

The more I read from players in other regions the better I feel about waiting until after work tomorrow to mess with it.
