Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Let's talk about Diablo 3, baby

    Launch Day Prep Guide


    Highlights:
    Early Install
    We will be unlocking the game's installer at 8:01 a.m. PDT on May 14. This will allow you to begin installing the game, troubleshoot any issues you run into, download and install the launch day 1.0.1 patch, and be ready to play as soon as the servers come online.

    Global Play Launch Time
    We’ll be turning on Global Play when the game has launched in all regions. This means that you will not be able to play in a region outside your home region until after the Americas’ midnight launch at 12:01 a.m. PDT on May 15.

    Launch Night Login
    Please be aware that a delay of up to 40 seconds is possible while the game attempts to connect you. If your connection doesn’t succeed in 40 seconds, you’ll be presented with an Error 37 message and asked to try again. If you see this error it does in fact mean that you should try again.

    Ack, PDT? Now I've gotta wait past midnight to play!

    I should just pick up and move to a PDT timezone. That'll solve all my problems.

    That's just for global play. I'm pretty sure they said at one point it'll be available at 12 am EST for ESTers. WoW always is, anyway.

    No. North Americans have to wait until Midnight PDT.

    ...for what?

    you guys are all terrible at communicating
    Monday 8:01 AM PDT - installable.
    Tuesday 12:01 AM PDT - playable.

    for EST, 11 am and 3 am.

    that's not what the Blizzard post says

    However, it does appear from a standpoint for dudes in the US that we have to wait till 3 am EST. Which is bullllssshiiiiit.

    Bullshit with precedence. The same thing happened to WoW this time around.

    Probably because it's easier to focus a simultaneous sever opening where the company is based out of. Blizzard is sadly a PST company.

    What, for Cataclysm? Are you sure? I seem to remember getting in at 12, though its been a while.

    ...what would marketing have to do with this?

    blizzard has their servers set up by regions, not time zones, so they have to let the whole region play at the same time

    this means waiting until the last time zone in the region has hit midnight

    Yes, for cataclysm. It wasn't available to play for East coasters until 3am. I'm betting this has something to do with the digital unlocks/whatnot.

    We were very up set a year ago, but no one remembers.

    quick googlesearch:

    http://www.threadmeters.com/u1Hlh6/Cata_unlocks_at_1201_but_Im_on_EDT_so/
    At 12:01 AM PST on December 7th your account will be automatically upgraded so you can begin playing Cataclysm.

    if you don't want to play it on release day or get a collector's edition then no, there's no particular reason to preorder.

    I'm pretty sure the Fry's around here will have boxed copies for people like me (my amish beliefs prevent me from putting money into a videogame preorder).

    Westside is the best side, I don't know what you've been taught.

  • Cilla BlackCilla Black Registered User regular
    The collector's edition for D3 is pretty sweet and gets you some unique in-game swag you're extremely unlikely to have access to later (blizzard has never been big on offering that stuff later on) so if you have the money it's worth it. I got D3 for free via annual pass or wouldn't have been able to afford it at all so no in-game angel wings for me. :(

    a bunch of amish have electricity, cars and internet these days right

    Blizzard collector's editions are always worth it if you can afford them. They're the dang gold standard.

    I've gotten every Blizzard game since Warcraft 3 as a collector's edition except for expansions. I don't think I can afford it this time though :(

    I'm off that Monday night, going to my local GameStop to grab my CE, blow $120 that could most likely be better spent on a nice TV or something for my new Apartment, going to feel bad for about 25 minutes, then going to forget about everything else as I play Diablo
