    I can only repeat myself. I had none of these issues. From time to time, I had a disconnect shortly after league start, that put me back in a 5-minute login queue, but that 5-minute downtime is nowhere near to be comparable to what blizzard does. If this had been the average PoE league I would be in yellow maps right now. Meanwhile, D2R had more downtime/rollbacks than you could actually play. A complete shit show.

    This might be hard to believe but your not the only person in the world. Just look at the huge fuss that went up with Ultimatum and streamers getting priority while most couldn't play.

    Well then can't we also say we had zero problems with running Diablo 2 on old bnet, and that the issues of server issues for D2R is also considered highly rare and pin-pointed? You're comparing the situation to your personal anecdote of running PoE fine more than not, so that wouldn't be much different than me pointing out that D2's run fine for me more often than it's been broken.

    D2R's only been out for less than a day and you're putting it on blast when we're all aware that this is a first-day launch situation, and not some patch update or new season for the game. Yeah, it's gonna have downtime and rollbacks, cuz it's a new game using new servers using new infrastructure.

    I mean once PoE2 launches, would you be completely angry and surprised if the servers weren't all up and running perfectly day 1? Well, you can be angry if you choose to, but any day1 server issues really shouldn't be surprising nor should it be compared to how well (or badly) original PoE servers were run, because it's ultimately different servers, different game.

    Ultimatum
    Ritual

    Delirium
    Blight
    Legion
    Synthesis

    that's 7 out of the last 10 leagues that had issues no one has to pinpoint a single league.

    Ritual - maps after 6 hours
    Heist - maps after 6 hours
    Delirium - maps after 6 hours
    Blight - maps after 6 hours
    Ultimatum - quit after 3 hours of downtime

    Meanwhile, D2R 6 hours after launch? Or any other blizzard game? If you asked me yesterday where I see myself rn in D2R 8-9~ hours after release, I would say we could consider ourselves lucky if the servers are running. Btw the same goes for D4 that comes in 2 years or whatever. You can quote me here. On the other hand, I expect to be in maps at this point when PoE2 launches. Worlds apart.

    Why do you think the game is unfinished? Network issues have almost nothing to do with whether a game is finished.

    WC3 reforged was finished and polished?

    Shadowlands was finished and polished?

    Battle for Azeroth was finished and polished?



    I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. I have no clue if D2 is ''polished'' or not as I haven't played it nor bought it (since I never said anythign about D2 specifically, but you like to put words in people's mouths), but based on their track record I am going to assume no until they prove otherwise, and threads like this sure don't help lol.

    Well, to be frank, what games are considered comparable to D2R's situation, and are finished and polished day 1 in comparison? Talking about new games or remakes like this. I think most people here are pretty on spot talking about new games having day 1 issues, especially if they're highly anticipated or popular and require a server to play on.

    Even the old RTS games weren't exactly polished on day 1 release, and I bought and played them when they came out. They were very playable and very good quality, but day 1 server issues and bugs always existed even back then. The difference was you usually spent your time playing offline through the 'campaign' until those server issues were resolved, but if you ever tried to day1 multiplay with your buddies, then good luck that was usually a shit show.

    This is one of the reasons why I decided to wait a week before buying. Gotta make sure they're gonna fix crap like this.

    Also it will not launch if you have an older CPU that doesnt support AVX, just like Cyperpunk had, blizzard are working on a fix for that as well.
    I'm gonna let 'em know that Dolemite is back on the scene! I'm gonna let 'em know that Dolemite is my name, and fuckin' up motherfuckers is my game!

    Not going to buy this until ladder, and this I guess is an effective showcase of WHY they are waiting with ladder release in the first place.

    I could log in as soon as it hit 00.00 for me. Played for an hour without any problems. I logged in from Japan to ''Americas'' servers.

    By your logic D2R launch is flawless because after all some people are able to play. So whats the problem?

    Official BlizzardCS said servers were down. I wonder how people played when the servers were offline. Interesting.

    I don't think I've ever had an issue free league launch.

    I played all night with an offline character, pause works there, no interest in multiplayer, I had a blast.

    You wanted it enough to buy it but only if you could play it on the first day?

    If you had that money to spend and were planning on spending that much time in the game this week why not just sleep on it and pick it up the next day? Presumably you wanted to play the game enough to buy it
