    So I was prepared for Diablo! I went to my nearest seven eleven to get coffee to stay up...Too bad The furthest I got was the character creation screen. After that I got continuous errors.

    Spamming my password wasn't helping either... Sleep > D3 at the moment.

    How many of you guys actually created a character and started playing?

    I think its a near impossibility for US players to login right this second. Same thing happened with the EU servers a few hours ago.

    nope, but i'm enjoying the awesome login meta game of hitting ctrl+alt+v then enter over and over again. I've seen the Retrieving Characters highlighted a few times so the rewards are getting better!

    Not yet. It's frustrating to deal with *server* issues when I just want to play the single player portion for a bit.

    I understand the idea behind it... but come on...

    it funny that the company that runs an MMO with 10 million+ people is having trouble. Goes to show that always on DRM is a problem

    Just got back home from the midnight launch about twenty minutes ago. I don't know if I am going to be able to play tonight though, for some reason the game is taking forever to install.

    Anyone who believed they could play right when the game launched is CRAZY. Of course the game was going to have issues right away.

    Hahaha, much obliged! Though, I imagine it would have fit better with the Error 37 thread.

    This generation of kids scares me. We were all warned? We're all paying for this?
    The servers were jacked up for an hour in the middle of the night because a bazillion people all tried to log on at the same time. Oh noes!!! Let's run to the Internet and cry about how everyone is out to fuck us.

    I'm not the one crying about it. Tons of people are, so I have no idea why you're directing that to me. I'm just saying that people were warned and should stop supporting obviously bad, invasive, and anti-consumer decisions.

    Btw, the servers are down again and have been for 3 hours. Good thing they're using Battle.net, wouldn't want soloers to be able to play or anything.

    Currently in Japan and trying to play with a really close friend back in the States today, and because of the time difference there is not a lot of time in which we can play together so it was a bummer to find that the servers were down.
