Diablo III

Anyone playing DIII? Here's a review of it that echoes my thoughts exactly!

Yeah they bombed launch day with a nuke

Well my brother bought it for me since I have a purchase ban against Blizzard, I will play, just not purchase another Blizzard product

So far, it is not so bad. Reminds me of a more colorful D2 without the Druid. Which made me sad, though the Witch Doctor has been fun, jars of spiders make me giggle.

Luckily I was not one of those that waited for 5 hours in line only to be locked out of the servers all day so that sour taste has not biased my gameplay lol

But I expected nothing more from Blizzard myself, they have the worst customer service and account security in the business.

I had to log off yesterday due to the server lag I was experiencing in a single player game. Perhaps in about a week Blizzard will get off its ass and purchase the 40 more servers they needed at launch

Never once had my WoW account hacked, of course I was smart enough to get an authenticator.

Why blame Blizzard? Did Blizzard put a keylogger on your machine?

And what other company requires an authenticator to play games? Because they are required at this point. I've seen authentication systems like it before. It was when my uncle worked for Sony Ericson in the late 90s and needed it to access anything related to his work. What more could be done?

Any other MMO I played would authenticate the account before allowing any characters to be moved or well, in this case they say it never existed. So hacked or them losing it I could not even begin to tell you. Authenticators are for companies who do not have account security at mind.

So, if you purchased a DVD went home and nothing was in it, took it back, was told to fuck off, you would still shop in said store??? This is how I felt, if they had been able to assure me, hey sorry your account was hacked and it is gone.... different story.... the account was shown to have never existed... my Diablo 2 battlenet account was still in existence and untouched...

With me, I was given shitty customer service by their company, as such I will not purchase any more products.

Someone tried to steal my EQ2 account, Sony locked it until they had callback authentication. Saved the account with just a little responsible account security.

Another example, all your information is stored on their servers, just as if you had stored some valuable items at a safety deposit box in a bank vault. Bank gets robbed, items get stolen from deposit box, bank insures it and you are compensated. Someone steals all of your stuff from Blizzard with their blessing, or not, and nothing is covered. Even though they have a perfectly well placed electronic trail to follow.

Plus, customer service is the face of any business, if it is shitty that business is guaranteed to lose customers.

Great game, but the shitty launch, and the fact that you have to log into a server to play a single player RPG is going to keep alot of people away from future titles.....

I doubt blizz is losing sleep on their beds of money.

I've had a lot of friends get hacked and everyone had their accounts returned with all items and gold in tact. I don't know what your situation is but you must have caught the rep on a bad day or something.

I went up the chain of command, got me a certified manager type in charge of customer relations. When they investigated they asked me why I was complaining about my account when it did not exist, there was nothing to be taken. All of my past payments were wiped along with the entirety of the account. They have no past record of the account ever having been activated, this after giving them the Key Code from the original package.

I think, either they lost a server and are not confessing... lol.... or someone with some real good know how hacked the fuck outta it into non-existence lol....

Mind you I really did not care as I was not playing WoW anymore, I was actually logging on to my Diablo 2 battlenet account and just happened to notice my WoW info was gone.

I suppose I could have sold my gold lol..... I did have lots of that.... I somehow end up fairly rich ingame in lots of these MMOs.

Anyone going to be trying The Secret World???

Gah, just noticed that D3 does not save your progress if you join anothers game. You just have to guess where you were before you joined, I hope they fix that.......

Yeah that's kind of a pain, you have to start at the beginning of the quest you are on and cant hop to the checkpoint. That's why I try not to join someone's game unless I'd just finished a quest line.
