Diablo Teething Issues [Diablo 3]

After 12 years, it’s good to finally see Diablo 3 launch.

Of course, things did not go off without a hitch. I was fortunate that my copy is registered in the U.K, rather than my home of Asia, where all manner of hell (pun intended) broke loose.

I would normally forgive Blizzard teething issues (sorry), but based on their substantial experience in managing cross-region launches (see: WoW, Starcraft II) and their deliberate decision not to undertake multiple global stress tests over the course of the beta, I feel they should be reprimanded for this.

If you’re going to insist on online services to support a singleplayer game, you can’t afford to leave anything to chance.
