Not to troll, but I bought my copy of Starcraft 2 only to play a few levels because the app kept insisting on update on every launch. I might sit out until things get ironed out.

Sadly, you'll have to do it at some point, that's to ensure the data is always up-to-date and patched. Blizzard has done this with WoW and SC2. Often you won't find the patching being buggy, just tuning the "weigh" for some in-game objects.

watched abit but realised thats diablo 2 footage (at the moment anyway). Hard to believe its 20 years on and i can still remember those cut scenes. 

I guess a good majority of those going to play d3 wouldnt have been born when d1, d2 was released, let alone played them. :)

OffGamers delivered the key just now, activated all good. I don't think I'll be doing much else until I've clocked Normal :)

I played Diablo 2 heaps back in the day (and still play through it now and then), but I'm a Diablo 1 virgin :(

Yup, "Error 37"

You'd think they would have learned how to do this by now, lol

This is THE worst launch failure ever in gaming history.

Yup I am fairly frustrated because for the single player campaign they should have activated over a period of days and found another way to stop people playing earlier, perhaps something from a time server globally or something. However, it's worth noting, this IS just a game, and stressing won't make it fix any quicker.

Anyone still stuck on Error 37 for The Americas server? I get Error 12 if switched to Asia or Europe.
