D3 launch turning into a complete disaster due to lack of LAN

Lack of LAN is seriously screwing Blizzard right now. American servers are fucked, Euro servers completely down and broken, Oceanic servers being rerouted to American ones.

A complete clusterfuck and gamers can't even access the single player version because of battlenet issues.

Live @midnight for you maybe.
Players have been sneaking in as they've been up and down in limited form to ease stress, only causing more issues.
When they open the flood gates at midnight... I'm going to need a bigger bucket of popcorn.

edit: I was dead serious too, feel free to fire it up and log in if you're US. It might default you to EU and give you EU/Asia errors, tell you the game is not out yet if you manually select US but the servers are down, or let you log in and play like my buddy and others are reporting is possible. But beware, I'm hearing that Blizz is using "always on" DRM so if bnet goes down it will crash your single player game instantly. The levels of rage are dwarfing The Old Republic's launch atm but honestly who's surprised when a gajillion people are trying to log in at once globally. I've also heard digital copies have their own separate issues too.

Pass the butter and salt!!

Get your bigger bucket of popcorn, because the rage I'm seeing on forums is unprecedented.

Why do these people insist on a one minute pass midnight launch on a huge title like D3. History has shown multiple times it's a disaster. I bought this game against my better judgement and yep cant even create a character in singleplayer. A shame gaming has gone this way. It was because of the always online I wasn't going to buy it but my 17 year old son who loved D2 said is that the only reason. I thought yea Blizzard are sure to have it under control or the wouldn't be doing it this way. Wrong

I really hate when people say this shit. of course the launch is going to be horrible, of course people are just going to bitch, of course we will wait until everythign stabilizes and then play the game. How about the gigantic consumer based video game company, that ALREADY took everyones money, get one launch corrrect in 7-8 years. Just one.

Stupid ideas like requiring the customer to be online at all times causes this problem, remove the requirement, solve the problem

While Ill agree the single player requiring online is extremely stupid I will cite 5 years of WoW launches to have the same exact issues. JUST ONCE BLIZZARD

I just never understood why companies do this.

How many times have we seen server fuck ups in games. A lot, so why are you making a game entirely on the internet with the use of forums. Just seems retarded to me. If you expect this to work day 1, I am sorry that you are that naive.

Nope not this once. Not even Diablo can make a server launch go smooth.

Every developer has a beta to stress test the serves. See what problems arise, and yet they still fail at launch. It always happens. The flood gates are always worse than anything you but your beta thru.

Just flipped over to Giantbomb as they are doing a live demo, and the game is completely broken for them. They can't even get out of the character creation screen. This will be the last time I take anyone seriously who claims Blizzard stands for quality.

nice!! You know what, next WoW/mmo/diablo release we should all attend the Blizz gameday promotional events. When they start to talk the crowd should yell out error 37, cant login to hear you. Just to keep them in touch with reality.



still bitter
