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.
0verdose05: 6 hours really? I had the same issue and just deleted the file and let it re download. No hassle. I Tried that plenty of times then found installing to another drive worked the treat also got some other error about a shortcut not being allowed but that only happend once
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.
