    That's the whole point that there aren't a bunch of people from America playing on the European server. Why bother playing when you're just going to have to do everything all over again?
    I imagine they wouldn't really care if they wanted to play badly enough.

    Especially considering that'd almost be like what Single Player mode was like in Diablo 2.

    That's Blizzard for you, using that corruption trope everywhere they can.
    Doesn't this game have an installer checker like in wow?

    Somehow I don't think they could've prepared enough for this anyway.
    Well, I'm cautiously optimistic that everything will be fixed tomorrow. Although I thought everything was going to be fine by now. I know everyone at Blizzard is hard at work right now to make sure we can enjoy our game

    what is the point of allowing global play in the first place then? if your objective is to prevent global traffic from flooding a server, why bother enabling global play at all?
    I think you misunderstood me. I think it's good that they don't have global play because it'd just cause more problems.

    Honestly your best bet anyway, hopefully it'll be fully functional by then.

    The amount of rage some people are going through is hilarious.
    Yes, I get that you want to play D3 after such a long wait and believe me, I got pretty pissed off too when I couldn't log in at all last night for a co-op session but when I look at some people's reactions, I can't help but think 'please reconsider your priorities'.
    i've had all day to lounge about and wait for the game, i just feel bad for the misses because she's come from work and just wanted to play the game and fall asleep.

    Edited:

    to play devils advocate though, if they did include an offline client i can't imagine how they could verify the integrity/genuineness of items, as you could just hack your character some weapons and then take them to the online game.
    yeah well then just keep the characters separate like Diablo 2.

    no i understood you, i think you're missing the point. if they want to avoid servers being overloaded by global traffic they should disable it altogether. enabling global play but keeping characters region locked doesn't save them any global traffic, but it annoys players.

    Edited:

    also the Blizzard customer support twitter is so annoying with the lame smalltalk it's killing me slowly inside reading the new tweets

    Question, I am looking for a Diablo 3 guest pass as I wish to try this out before I play it, are any of you willing to give me one? If so please PM me as I am really interested about this game but won't post no further because it would clearly spoil my game experience.

    Are the servers down completely still? I thought If I took a 6 hour nap that they would be back online. At least my friends won't be able to level up past me now.

    I agree with you on both points, sorry for misinterpreting what you were saying.

    If they are trying to influence the players from starting new characters cross-region, I can personally say that it's effective.

    I just know starting a new character so early (especially on a different region that I'll likely never set foot in again after next week!) will only serve to annoy me in the long-run. Therefore, I will wait.

    They came back up and then went back down again during your nap.

    Anyone else disappointed with the cinematics for the acts and such? I just don't like the artstyle. I would rather much have them like they were in D2, but oh well.

    also    I hated that the "Mysterious Stranger" in the beginning was an angel. so obvious.

    I was in the closed beta but I did not receive the "Chosen one" achievement. Not that it matter very much but still... anyone else who was in the beta got it?

    I know they were having issues with achievements earlier. You might get it later.

    The story telling is generic, predictable and boring, I saw it coming with the first & second cinematic.

    Gameplay is fun though.

    If you really wanted a singleplayer version and wouldn't mind not being able to interact with your multiplayer account then just go play on the European servers, it's exactly the same right now

    Now, not to join the Ragetrain, but...

    Maybe don't treat a primarily-singleplayer game (keyword is "primarily") as a MMO?

    Just sayin'.

    a "singleplayer version" implies the bypass of battle.net

    It should have all been automatically saved on their servers as it was obtained

    Speed runs. And keep in mind, this is Normal. Hard through to Inferno is rediculously hard and will require powerful loot. Which cannot be found in a speed run.
