Tracking gamer related idiocy, obscenity and genius across the internet. And we want to know about it.
Will post rational thoughts from gamers too, the kind you least expect. As ever, submit below.
@77 Like I said, even the best servers in the world are going to crumble of the amount if data trying to be pulled in and out is too excessive. This is one game that’s probably being hammered by millions of requests a second. There *isn’t* a server alive that can handle that. And Blizzard has some of the best servers in the world.
It’s not just singular servers either. There’s servers for account logins, servers for achievements, servers for the other games on B.Net. You seriously underestimate how much strain is being put on them.
I laugh when people think there’s some sort of magic solution. There isn’t. The only solution is less strain. And that’s only going to stop when less people are hammering the servers all at once.
It will work fine in a couple of days, and then nobody will give a fuck.

Oh and I pre-ordered the Limited Edition version at work…
Why can I not control my excitement.
and yes, I am prepared to lose followers over this.
It’s taken 12 years for this game to come out, it’s a big deal.
Any weekend plans?
