I can't believe game companies don't anticipate this. They knew MILLIONS of people would want to play it on launch yet the underestimate them again.

jmobley2040d ago

I totally agree with you. I defended them initially saying that they have the resources for this, but it seems like they didn't.

brish2040d ago

... and this is why there should have been an offline mode.

Trenta272040d ago

Exactly! They couldn't even put a damn queue in. Way to go, Blizzard. Way to freakin go...

jmobley2040d ago

I'm updating the story as I go. But there is still no ETA :/ I waited 12 years to wait.

Azurite2040d ago

They actually did anticipate this and informed us this would likely happen.
Just don't remember where they announced it.

Trenta272040d ago

Yes, but why not turn on a TON of servers? They knew exactly how many people were going to log in from preorder sales.

They did anticipate this and did nothing about it.

It's because it's launch. Everyone is jumping on, but given a few days less people will be on at all times like this. If they buy more servers, those servers will go to waste when things calm down.

The only thing I don't understand is why not take a few servers from WoW for a few days....

Not surprised. I knew this was going to happen, that's why i didn't purchase it. During the free beta weekend i had a few login errors. Permanent online to play single player is a joke. Get this when it's cheaper and fixed.

For now... Max Payne 3. Can't wait for Torchlight 2.

I think this wouldn't be such a problem if not for the required log-in for single player. They're losing a lot of faith for that.

This is exactly why the whole required persistent online connection thing is a bad idea!

You all were just to slow.

At 3:01 I was able to log in, create my first charactor, and play up to level 5 just fine. Only thing stopping me is I have to goto bed now.

You're so cool, man. And I was wondering to myself, while reading you're cool story, "What is stopping this badass from being a level 6!?!" Thankfully, you're so cool, you provided a great conclusion. Thanks.
