Blizzard: We didn't prepare well enough for Diablo III Developer admits it didn't prepare adequately for Diablo III launch.
The launch of the hotly anticipated title was marred somewhat by widespread problems with the game. Since it requires a constant-on Internet connection as an anti-piracy measure, servers became overloaded quickly and many users were given an error message (Error 37) when they tried to login.

"Despite very aggressive projections, our preparations for the launch of the game did not go far enough," the developer admitted.

"We're continuing to monitor performance globally and will be taking further measures as needed to ensure a positive experience for everyone. This includes some maintenance to implement additional improvements for each region."

The developer has also decided to delay the launch of Diablo III's real money auction house beyond its original estimated date of May 22.

Yet another bad user experience caused by companies who insist on treating their customers like criminals.

This sort of nonsense is what killed gaming for me.

SC2 was good enough at launch so far D3 seems to be a train wreck....

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.
