We all know Diablo 3 has just released but how many of you are actually playing and getting a smooth experience? Reports are coming in that even though you wish to play single player, the Diablo 3 DRM is similar to what Ubisoft have been slammed for in the past.
People cannot connect to the servers or are being kicked and losing their place. Some are facing complete region monster respawns and lost dropped treasure, all in single player mode...
I myself have played for a few hours and had no bad experience to speak of. But that might have been because I was playing in the early twighlight, when first day server load was somewhat "minimal".
Let us know your first experiences and what you feel about the DRM? Is it similar to Ubisoft DRM, where genuine gamers who purchased the game were often suffering, while the torrenting gamers were enjoying a hassle free experience from their pirated copies?
It is our collective voice that helps direct game publishers on what is acceptable and what works, so have your say below.
Are you experiencing any day one issues? If so what are they and are they acceptable?
Or are you having a brilliant Diablo 3 experience? If so what are your highlights of D3's system so far? NO SPOILERS!
I want to finish by saying, you are here because you love gaming, so please support the game industry. Do not promote piracy.
