The best solution is for everyone to wait ten minutes between log attempts. That way we spread out the load on the authentication server, and we can all get in sooner.

    10 mins wasted now is $100 lost on the auction house next week .. lol just kidding ! :)

    A que on log in server would save the problem  then you only log in 1 time  .

    +1 Seriously ... this is not a damn mmo... it's  a single player game! I still can't believe people are just accepting that they have to login to play a single player game....

     

    guess  i'm getting too old...

    All the haters need to STFU!!! Blizzard knew exactly what they were getting into. They know what the hell they are dong.  Give them some f'in credit.  If you can't handle that, turn your copy back in and get your money back.  Plain and simple.  Don't buy a copy of a game then whine and moan that you can't play it the minute the online servers go live.  It doesn't work that way.  D3 was a WORLDWIDE SIMUELTANEOUS RELEASE!!!  This means in ALL the markets that Blizz operates have access to the servers.  Any server that is allocated to the game is going to see hundred of thousands of users logging on at once.  Server busy errors are going to happen.  DEAL WITH IT!!!

    This was a very highly anticipated game and they wanted enjoyment for all, instead of doing staggered releases for it.  It wouldn't be fair for one country to be able to play it first, especially with a game as huge as D3.

    As far as load balancing the servers, to be able to balance something, you have to find out the extremes.  In the article, Blizz was calling for login delays to control the flow.  If the servers crashed at launch, D3 would be DOA and Blizz would have a huge amount of egg on the face, a major quarterly loss, followed my mass layoffs.

    A lot of us gamers are currently unemployed. I myself have been without a job since last Nov.  On my system, I have no shortage of alternate games I can play.  I'll wait a few days for them to get the kinks out.  Launch day is just asking too much.

    (For any of those I have offended, grow a backbone will ya!)

    got in on the first try, Alt+Tab out occasionally to watch LoL streams and read a forum, i've done the first part of act 1 about 10 times as we all have im sure so im having a hard time focusing

  • maplestonemaplestone Ottawa, ONPosts: 3,099Member

    This game is so hardcore that the first level is a frantic battle past the hoards of zombie hamsters killed by the falling star.

    You don't have a lot of options, but if you keep spamming password, login, ok, you get to another room with create and back.  If you press back, you suffer permadeath and have to start over, otherwise you have to face the guantlet of evil 3006 and 3000008 wraiths.  I haven't seen the level after that, but it's a pretty challenging game so far!

    ( ok,ok, I'm not disagreeing with the OP, I'm just making the best lemonaide I can out of it, knowing that in a few hours/days, once the initial crush passes by, all tonight's disappointments will likely be forgotten and forgiven anyway )

    I'm surprised they didn't have some type of rolling starts based on time zones..

  • gessekai332gessekai332 New York City, NYPosts: 854Member Uncommon

    Blizzard's response to login spamming due to login failure on twitter:

     

    "BlizzardCS@BlizzardCS

    Getting Error 37 when trying to log into #D3? http://bit.ly/L5vSP7 Give it some time and try again. :)"

     

    Sick f*cks. seriously.

    Would you rather see....

  • Matticus75Matticus75 Posts: 396Member Uncommon

    Server Qs

     

    And Rolling release in the time zones you bought the game from

     

    all at midnight at PST lmao is a joke

  • TrionicusTrionicus Fort Lauderdale, FLPosts: 497Member Uncommon

    Yep, the sauce is pretty weak with needing an always online connection, even SC2 has an offline mode. That being said, I'm headed to sleep now.

    Incorrect! Blizzard knew this would happen because they just want their money and don't care about their customers. 40mins into launch and server is still busy is unacceptable for this type of game.

  • GrailerGrailer HamiltonPosts: 876Member Uncommon

    If They let us go GLOBAL  we could play on europe and asia servers at least ffs

    So they should be given credit for being incompetent?  And worry about server crashing? WTF does that matter if 90% of the people that buy your game can't log on? How many places had midnight launch parties?  Making your game require online connectivity just to play the SP portion is the height of stupdity.

    In War - Victory.
    In Peace - Vigilance.
    In Death - Sacrifice.

    Or would you rather sit in front of computer for 2 days 4 hours and 23 mins trying to log in lol ?

  • sparkhazelsparkhazel Natchitoches, LAPosts: 5Member

    What I don't understand is why Battle.net is a requirement to play this game? D2 and D1 didn't require you to log online at all.  I don't get why they didn't make an offline mode for those who just want to play the game without having to go through all of this silly garbage to play.  Oh well, Grats Bliz for blowing the launch on a game I was looking forward to playing
