It has been almost two years since D3 launch and the server problems are still there! They are not always down, like they were the weeks following the game's launch, but they can be down any time, any day, even in the middle of your game.

How many times were you not able to log in "because of error 33 or 300x"?
How many times did the launcher start only to be stuck on the "retrieving heroes" step?
How many times did you game freeze in mid-level, first sounds and animations failing and then getting yet another SERVER FAILED Error message?
How many times does ActiBlizzard have to perform total maintenance of those D3 servers a week? And why don't they do that for subscription games, like WoW?

How many times did you have to pause the game on the menu screen only to come back and find out that the servers kicked you out - all progress up to that point lost.

How many times did you decide to spend some time using the game you paid for only to be surprisingly refused because of ActiBlizzard's inability to hold its end of the bargain and its indifference to inform its customers before hand.

You idiots are either incapable of running an Always-online single player game or you just do not care to do so. Because if you had put half the effort you put in pestering us to buy in-game gold with real money (those www.PVPbank.com "friend" requests are company gold-sellers) these problems would had been solved a long time ago.

Since you are yanking the Auction House away what is the point for this travesty anyway?

Does the truth make you angry or nervous?
Or is it official Activision/Blizzard's policy to call all its dissatisfied customers "nerds"?

nerdrage is nerdrage... and you sir are nerdraging.

NeuroSplicer says:
Does that mean Activision/Blizzard do not want the business of nerds or that if anyone complains you will try to brand them as "nerds" and ignore their valid complaints under this cheap pretext?

The question is moot, of course, when addressed to a company shill.

How many times? Never! I think that either it's your settings or your ISP. I'm running on a 6 year old Gateway, Xfinity cable, no problems whatsoever.

Really? You think it's... my settings or my ISP? Why, then, does Blizzard announce these "known problems" in a BattleNet banner every so often?

This information was relevant around 2 years ago around the week the game launched.

It's horribly outdated. Connection problems are extremely scarce now and have been for some time.

NeuroSplicer says:
The servers were down again TODAY (all day) for... "maintenance".
So, I would say the information is very up-to-date and quite accurate.

The servers problems never went away.
They are simply affecting fewer people because gamers abandoned D3 in droves.

Yeah, no.

Servers were back up again at 12:00PST.

They're getting the servers ready for RoS, so maintenance ran long. But please continue attempting to shade this as a common thing.

The game content is not enough to make me buy it. Bad connection or lag - Acti-Bliz will never allow you to play offiline. Kinda strange since the downloads and updates and ROS will be about 30gigs on your computer - and no offline ever? Kinda makes ya scratch your head and say - glad I didn't buy that!

Shanghaied says:
I know right? I'd say 30 gigs is exactly how big this will be.

I mean, the base game with most of the content that will be in RoS was delivered via the 2.0 patch, and it's around 14 gigs. So, stands to reason that the expansion should make it twice that, right? I mean, it is an additional full MSRP $40.00 game.

Therefore, 1+1=2, your argument just makes sense!
