    I don't fully understand people's excitement over this archaic clicker.

    Definitely a bugged installer, you cannot install in any location other than the default it has preprogrammed... lol wth? Also if you double click the location path instead of the button it crashes. Hopefully this is not the caliber of work that the live game will have.

    Quite a weekend indeed.  First it was TERA, and now this game.  Wonder if it will hinder interest for either with them both having this big open beta weekend.

    A number of people, me included, operating windows 7 64bit faced problems with the installer and the game launcher. I fixed the issue by running the installer and the launcher / game .exe's with WinXP SP3 compatability and "Run as admin" checked.

    Uhh... what?

    Huh? But this website is a about MMos... the definition of clickers. Why wouldn't you understand, specially if your here yourself?

    Nevermind that the launcher and Login screen are already exact clones of World of Warcraft.

    But the Login button is not clickable.

    Diablo III, which is not an MMORPG... has full servers?

    Ah... thanks WoW... thanks a lot.

    Yeah lol. Single player game (with coop ability), but you cannot play, because Blizzard's servers are too busy. LMAO.

    Can't get on at the moment, error 75 all the time.

     

    Not a great start, but I have prepaid for the game so this is just something to do over the weekend :P

    This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

  • CujoSWAoACujoSWAoA Nooo, AKMember Posts: 1,781 Uncommon

    Yeah, definitely not buying this game.
