Online DRM is a wonderful thing, ain't it, Blizzard?
All these delays of planned content make it sound like it really was Activision forcing them to release D3 earlier, instead of going for the usual Blizz standard of waiting until it's "perfect" (don't mind that much, well unless skill trees were cut for the same reason, in which case I want blood).
Okay, I can't be the only one who thinks title looks fucked.
I WANT TO QUIT MY JOB AND BECOME A GOLD FARMER.
Why don't they give a player the option to disable the auction house on selective characters so they don't have to put up with lag.
So you have to be online all the time so you can use the real money auction house to buy items for a linear singleplayer RPG?
I never played Diablo 2 but whats the appeal in buying an item for real money to use in an RPG that lasts about 15 hours or so? I understand it if its an MMO but this seems pointless.
Buying a really good weapon and finishing the game with it sounds like it takes some of the fun out of finding loot.
The problem here is obviously the always-online DRM, making legitimate players want to get a mod or crack so they can play offline.
I'm against DRM like any other reasonable gamer, but complaining won't change the fact that millions of people bought Diablo III knowing that Blizzard engineered the game with the always online requirement in its DNA.
They won't backpedal on this. On the contrary. They'll fix the current bugs, then they'll get back to work on the most advanced copy protection scheme the industry has seen.
Edit: anyway, the way they borked this launch is inexcusable. There are companies such as Amazon that will happily lend you datacenters, in order to solve your bandwidth and computing power problems, if you have the money. And Blizzard has obscene amounts of money.
Has anyone else been getting terrible lag?
I just started on Hell difficulty and I'm finding it impossible to do anything with 300-500 ping, enemies are constantly killing me from outside melee range and its impossible to dodge ranged attacks because of the delay.
I hate you Blizzard, I am a big fan of diablo series and I really love DIII but we need an offline single player !!!
FU blizzard damn you , and FU**K Y*u for game run smoothly yesterday the server was down again.
YEAH YEAH the game will run smoothly...
After watching vids of D3's Cow Level, I am forgiving Blizzard for everything and will even go buy D3.
EDIT: Everything goes as planned, bronies giving me boxes.
Due to having a unstable connection I cant play my singleplayer game due to constant server disconnects. Ive had to repeat the one dungeon 6 times due to disconnects , Ive even disconnected after the act 1 boss while walking towards the exit. Complete waste of money for me. Its a shame because i have been a fan since the original
If it was EA there would be rioting on the streets. But for Blizzard it's okay to fuck over the entire fanbase and butcher the game.
