Oh Battle.net, it's been 10 years since we last met.
What other brave souls will venture into the depths of hell tonight?

Not me, not my kind of game. But funny (and predictable) detail: a guy i know works for Blizzard and he said that when the servers were activated last night things crashed big time cause too many people tried to log in straight away haha

Not just starcraft 2 either. I'm pretty sure most of the highly anticipated and overly hyped online games had similar problems the past few years. Somehow game studios just don't seem to bother to dish out the extra cash to make sure there's server overhead so paying customers can actually play on the release date.

Yes yes, battlefield was a nightmare on the release date as well. D3 servers went offline twice in US since this morning, but considering all things it was smoother then expected actually.

Everquest (my MMORPG of choice) was like that the first half a dozen expansions. While I wasn't there when they turned the servers live day one (I started about four months after launch), I read a lot of stories about the beginning times. And certainly every patch day was a massive cluster.

Absolutely not! it's a good game don't get me wrong, but i was kinda disappointed. it just... lacks something that D2 had. Not sure if its the graphics or the linearity but I'm bored of D3 already.

i waited 10 years for this game and was majorly let down.

Plot is lacking, but gameplay is brilliant. Have you finished inferno?

They can patch all they want, it will never be as good as the old one.

I played for month or so when it came out, then after that only occasionally. Came back for the 1st anniversary celebration (+25% exp, thought I might grind a monk to inferno while it lasted) and noticed that a new patch had been released that made some things a lot nicer. My previous inferno character was dual wielding barbarian. I just got kinda annoyed how ridiculous some of the good legendary and set armors made her look, especially with some huge shoulder armor. The monk has been so much easier to play and level up too. I got her through inferno in half the time it took the barbarian. Now I'm kinda just farming inferno on mp2 for money and gear. Never really got in to the millions-trade in the auction house so I haven't got 19 million gold to put on some single piece of equipment :P

I do miss the runes in D2 and being able to socket them and rings and amulets too. Also you can't really make too odd characters anymore and there's not much gear that would be great to multiple classes. I'm just aiming to complete the infernal machine event but after that I don't know. Time will tell if there will be anything left to do or not.
