Man that was a pita to get the installer going. It was hanging at Updating Setup Files at about 70% complete. Finally found out I have to go and open Agent.exe from the Battle.net folder in C:\ProgramData.

I'm also only getting a 1.0MB/s transfer rate :(

You're lucky if you're getting 1MB/s - I only got ~260kb/s, fortunately I started downloading this morning.

Does anybody else feel that D3 is a lot like SC2? In terms of how good the game is. I liked both, but I didn't run out and buy SC2. A few new game mechanics and some good storyline, but really just a decent update of a good game.

The D3 visual game experience is a bit lacking as well, especially because they use the same locked 3rd person view as D2/D1. Really annoying when you're trying to click stuff near walls and impossible to see into certain doorways. Can't really enjoy the artwork they've put into the game.

If PVP doesn't bring anything game changing to D3 I highly doubt I'll be buying before any price drops. I'd rather spend on GW2/Torchlight2.

I wouldn't expect pvp in diablo to change anything. It's a carebear pvp system. No risk, no reward.

I downloaded when the early leak happened so I didnt have any trouble in that regard. Had a few troubles with getting started a little earlier today, server something or other.

But I hate to say it but that was really really short.... Played through as a wizard and dont think it was long enough to get any real sort of feel for it I hate to say. Though the level cap was going to be 13 or some such, fairly sure I hadnt hit 9 yet. Wasnt bad and I'm sure I could enjoy it if I got it I'm just not sure its a rush out and preorder for me right now. Then again I've recently been burned with quite a few preorders so that also may be effecting my decision.

For me personally PVP wont add anything. Never been my thing in this type of game.

Meh, Diablo has always been about the loot for me.

I swear I posted in here about this game.. but maybe it was my sleepy stupor.

So here I go again..

1) Demo is far to short and can be finished in 1-2 hrs tops
2) Graphics are subpar and feel dated.

As from what I've seen and played this is a sale game for me.

i used to play d2 classic back in the day. for me, the game was all about the pvp haha. once you grind cow lvl until you can fit your items, it was off to the BARB VS BARB DUELS and shift right clicking as you WW around and try to juke the other guy :)
but sadly, this game wasted waaay too many hours of my youth. i am trying hard to refrain from any beta's of this game in fear of being drawn back into the game :p

For what they released to call it a beta puts a shame to the word beta.. you want beta play Firefall.

This is a REALLY low class limited DEMO
