Just thought i would put my 2 cents out there on the fiasco that is Diablo 3. I have been waiting 12 years for it I finally get it and the problems start with the box been a pain to open then i go to install it and get some stupid error about the mpq file been corrupted i spent 6 hours trolling around forums to find a fix and i finally got it sorted after 6 hours by installing on a diffrent hdd and deleting the offending file then as I click play get a message from my friend saying the usa servers have gone down like 5 mins after I get to click the play button. IMO it is a all out fiasco Blizzard should have forseen the problems that a game like this would cause with such a overload on there servers one would think they must have heard of cloud computing.

Aside from the current crash, and an hour of waiting to get in last night, it has been smooth for me :(

6 hours really? I had the same issue and just deleted the file and let it re download. No hassle.

I downloaded the trial installer, and that went OK... until the actual log-on, when it threw back an Error 3003, and later on a 'down for maintenance' error. I was really hoping to play online with my inner circle earlier tonight.

I get the feeling this is Activision Blizzard's biggest own goal to date.
